Skins? (Post #2) Edit

How do you get skins for your userpage? I go to "Skins" under Preferences, and all I see is a big blank. Any help would be greatly appreciated. SkinrLeader of Iconic CrescentSworn Enemy of Pablo GM the Buffet Bandit 19:21, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

The "skins" tab is for the appearance of the whole site, not your userpage. Presently there is only one skin available on Halopedia, but this will be changing in the near future. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 01:45, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Thats what I came here to ask, and I didn't even have to!!!Spec-op sniper058 Albinolep 19:28, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Will there be a monobook skin? Because that would be awesome. Zeldafanjtl 17:47, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it should be available as an option. Many of the new social features will appear broken on it, though. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 14:05, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Any estimation of when these skins will be rolled out? Zeldafanjtl 04:30, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

The only response we are getting from Wikia is "soon." We have been assured at least one week warning prior to the switch. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 15:26, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
Wow, "soon" is taking a while. Can't the admins just change it so that we can choose our own preferences? Bioniclepluslotr 17:26, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

WTH is RSC? Edit

I just noticed that today, the usual Halopedia address bar logo (which is normally just a Halo "H") says "RSC" (look on the tab and you'll see what I mean). Why is this? SkinrLeader of Iconic CrescentSworn Enemy of Pablo GM the Buffet Bandit 22:19, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

It may have been your internet browser. Can you try taking a screenshot and post it in for a looksie? Little_Missy - Cortana Gif 22:21, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
The favicon is drawn from Image:Favicon.ico. Any problems with its' appearance are likely to be on your end. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 05:38, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Now it's gone... It disappeared a day later. SkinrLeader of Iconic CrescentSworn Enemy of Pablo GM the Buffet Bandit

Help with server Edit

Okay, I got the full version of Halo PC. It ran Halo Update, and it says now I have version 1.07. That's great, except now, when I try to join a game (i.e. click Get List), I get the message "An error has occured trying to contact the Gamespy master server." Help! SkinrLeader of Iconic CrescentSworn Enemy of Pablo GM the Buffet Bandit 02:18, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

P.S. I tried to play online on the trial, and it still works.

P.P.S. Sorry for all the commenting; I don't mean to sound whiny :(

That would probably be your connection to the internet or it might possibly your internet settings. Check either Halo's Connection settings and the computer's internet settings. Other than that, it might just possibly be the game itself...Little_Missy - Cortana Gif 18:30, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Dude, get 1.08 update, i can't cuz of my damn computer but you probly can, i only get 12 servers with 1.07, get 1.08 for them all now. Mr. Halonerd Ajax-loader My Talk My FanFic 03:24, 12 September 2008 (UTC)


I just wanted to comment that our Halo 2 Articles seem to be a bit...inferior to the rest. For example, the level walkthroughs, images, and general content aren't that wonderful for Halo 3 as compared to the others (books, Halo: CE, Halo 3, etc) Just a note. Cheers. RickrollerGeneralÌṂρεσάḹόґMyVictoriesCavalier achievement 18:44, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

I was thinking that the Halo Combat Evolved articles weren't so good as the rest, and that the Halo 2 articles were better. Bioniclepluslotr 13:48, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

A quick suggestion for the sitenotice. Edit

When it comes to linking to youtube videos, it's great when you put "&fmt=18" at the end of the link. It makes the video high quality. So [1] would be [2].

Can't get Avatar to upload.Edit

It just gives me the little white box with the red "x". Help? Spartan E94 00:35, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Its has something to do with the internet you have, your graphics/video card, or the current version of your CPU (EX. XP service Pack 2, not 3) isn't good. Same, its happening to me. The pics are just, maybe, well, to high qualitly....Generalkits34
Thanks for the response. Yeah I have Vista Home Premium, if it matters. But I see a lot of people uploading their BNet profile pictures as their Avatars on here, so why won't it let me do it? Spartan E94 06:53, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Action Figure Edit

Just wanted to say if there is any stuff on McFarlane's Halo 3 Action Figures, leave it to me.Bioniclepluslotr 22:44, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Ah, yes. I forgot that we had changed our ethos to "anyone can edit" to "anyone can edit with whateveryournameis' permission." — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 00:26, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Ok, I'll rephrase that; I'll be doing lots of work with the Action Figure's page. You can count on me to get most info on them. Bioniclepluslotr 00:00, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
This site is depending on you man. --Councilor Εw C 'Dnaudee Battle Net My Editcount Administrators 10:22, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Main Page Edit

Under Halo: Combat Evolved on the main page, you should add a link to the Halo Trial article since it was actually an important part to the PC version.

It was just a demo version. Not much significance there... KAC-Knatbus 15:14, 26 October 2008 (UTC)


Can someone please tell me how I edit my password? Spartan E94 05:26, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

4 Years Old Edit

Halopedia is only 4 years old? I thought it was older than that. Halo came out a long time ago. Bioniclepluslotr 21:37, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Meh...considering that the Wikia project didn't come out until around that time...:P T[he PrinceCall me Machiavelli I rule thou with naught but fear

Halo is already 7 years old

no, i meant Halopedia. Bioniclepluslotr 03:33, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Death Lines and Barriers Edit

Is there an article on dead lines (points where you die by crossing) or barriers (vehicle barriers)? Bioniclepluslotr 17:27, 9 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi There,

I am new to this game world. I brought new XBox 360 and my first game choice was Halo3. Now, I am playing it but I don't have too many enemies. On startup it shows me only few options.

1) Solo game 2) Campaign 3) Forge 4) Theater 5) Custom

Solo game option only take me to the jungle combat. I don't see anything in theater option. When I select custom, there are few options to select Map & other stuff.

Can you guys help me how to do settings inside the game & how to set difficulty level so that I can have real experience of my first game.

Note: I don't have XBox live membership & my console is not connected to internet(although I have high speed internet). Do I need XBox live membership & my console should connect to internet, to get full Halo 3 game experience?

Do in this gaming would, Do companies release regular updates (like MS office or any software)? If yes, then should I keep my game be updated?

Thank you very much in advance for your time & answers.

-New Gamer

Hello, New Gamer

You should make a profile here if you want to know more. About your questions: The solo starts the campaign. The first level is the jungle. For theater, you need to have played a level, or at least played something. In theater, you can view the game in third-person, or from other angles. To change difficulty, go to campaign and you can change it. You do not need xbox live to play the full Halo 3, but you will not be able to play over Live. Updates will be sent over xbox live, so you will need it. Bioniclepluslotr 18:01, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

  • Solo Campaign - All games basically have levels. The solo campaign takes you to level 1. Completing this takes you to level 2 and so on. You won't need Xbox Live membership to get a good experience from the game.
  • Campaign - This lets you go back and choose a level to play. You can only play levels you've unlocked, so you'll need to go to Solo Game first.
  • Forge - This is good for game experience. It allows you to edit the objects and weapons on a multiplayer map (You don't need xbox live for this). This can be very fun, imaginative etc.
  • Theater - Another nice tool. You can go back and watch the levels you played. You need to play a game first. The tool allows you to basically do what you ca with a DVD. Play, pause, rewind etc. You can record clips and save them. This requires no gameplay, as you're just watching what you did the day before.
  • Custom - Custom games. Create your own games, meaning you can adjust the weapons useable on a multiplayer map, player settings such as health and shields, weapon settings, like unlimited ammunition etc. This is good for two or more players.

When you get Xbox Live, another option is available that allows you to access the Matchmaking lists. These are where you can play assorted gametypes against people all around the world. Xbox Live isn't required to have a good time with Halo, but it can certainly add to the experience. Tigerrrrr 19:22, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Action Figure Categories Edit

Can someone help label the action figures with Categories, like Category:Spartan Action Figures or Category:Elite Action Figures? Bioniclepluslotr 17:56, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm sure once people see the categories on existing articles, they'll end up adding them to olther articles too. Should be a simple task. Tigerrrrr 19:12, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Playstation Halo? Edit

Is there a Playstaion 2 version of Halo? I remember seeing a guide about it and the Xbox one doesn't say "Only for Xbox". Bioniclepluslotr 18:17, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

As far as Bungie's said, they were trying to get it working on several platforms before the Microsoft aquisition. They didn't make much progress on the PS2 version, though, and after the aquisition Microsoft probably didn't want to give its competition its hottest new IP. --Councillor Specops306 - Kora 'Morhek 04:15, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Is the "only for xbox" thing not there because it's for PC, too? Halo 2 has vista and it still says "only for xbox". Bioniclepluslotr 03:21, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

General of the Army Edit

Has anyone made it to the "General of the army" rank? Bioniclepluslotr 19:18, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Not yet. You can check who's where here.KAC-Knatbus 19:56, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Whoa, not even the admins? Bioniclepluslotr 19:40, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

com or org? Edit

Is this site's url or because it used to be an "org" and is now a "com"? Bioniclepluslotr 19:42, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

It's dude. All you have to do is look up at the URL box :P --Councilor Εw C 'Dnaudee Battle Net My Editcount Administrators 07:39, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Halopedia used to reside at but now resides here, at Don't confuse the two. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 09:28, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Why was it changed? It happened to all Wikias, right? Bioniclepluslotr 00:19, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
No. Wikia's domain has always been com; was the location of the wiki before it moved to Wikia. Give Halopedia:History a read some time. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 15:48, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

WTF? Wrong never ending quiz answer Edit

Someone's stupid as hell, as they submitted a question that asked which piece of armor that the achievement "Spartan Officer" unlocks and put the answer as Mark V when we all know that it's Rogue. I was more pissed before i realized the quiz never ended, though. Oh, and also there's one which says that the last line in Halo 2 is "Sir, finishing this fight", while it's actually "Alright, shoot." Just saying.

If you have a problem with them, there's the "Flag" option, where it puts them up for review and possible deletion by Admins. --Councillor Specops306 - Kora 'Morhek 22:45, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh, sorry....

Wikia Format Edit

how come Halopedia is a different format from other wikias? we should change this site so that when some one types in part of a link or image name, a list will show matching articls and images. same with the search bar. just a suggestion. Bioniclepluslotr 21:51, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Heresy! Don't listen to his heretical speech!!! Heretic! Heretic! Heretic! Kougermasters 22:22, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

By the way, Bioniclepluslotr, your bright signature makes my eyes bleed. Kougermasters 22:22, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

We're in the process of being merged back to the normal codebase, which will include using the default skin. You can see it in action here. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 04:08, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh God no. It is hideous! Don't you dare do that! (please) Don't ruin Halopedia! OOmggGGG This better be an early April Fool's Joke Kougermasters 00:44, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I like. It actually makes editing a lot easier and the same with navigating. (and since my signature is so bad, i'll change the color) Bioniclepluslotr 02:34, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

halp Edit

Hello my name is smeey and I noticed that these individual things seem to be missing from the perspective articles .since I lack the organization skills to write a presentable wiki page im asking someone to double check my info and then add them to their prospective pages. All information is cited so finding it to reference and double cheak should be easy to do .if you fix these individual problems please remove are state that its been added please to avoid confusion. Called thought Called More info Called Possible mistake Called mistake i think Called rampancy should be added Called add grav

If you think these things are wrong or incorrect, why don't you change them yourself? Bioniclepluslotr 02:27, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Wow Over a year! Edit

We have had the same featured article for over a year. Good job.--User:JohnSpartan117 06:07, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

The problem is that the MoH code hasn't worked since the site makeover. Until that gets fixed, MoH can't elect new FAs. --Dragonclaws(talk) 09:02, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

And this has remained unfixed for over a year? Kind of sad.--User:JohnSpartan117 14:45, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Flagging Polls Edit

I noticed there is a "flag link" for quiz questions and picture games, but not polls. What if we find a poll that is inappropriate? How do we report it? Bioniclepluslotr 02:22, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

If reporting the poll to an administrator is not sufficient for you, you can edit the talk page to include the delete template. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 07:35, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Halo-Dev Edit

All changes done one Halopedia will show up on Halo-Dev, but changes on Halo-Dev won't show up here, am I right? Bioniclepluslotr 02:58, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

You are not. That wiki holds a dump of Halopedia's content from around about October. There is no transfer of content between the two wikis. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 07:34, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
So all the things on Halo-Dev are outdated? Bioniclepluslotr 17:19, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Board Blast Edit

Has the board blast been removed because i can't send them anymore? Bioniclepluslotr 23:18, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

No Board Blasts are still available. Councilor Εw C 'Dnaudee Battle Net My Editcount Administrators 09:56, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Email Notification Edit

Did the email name of Halopedia change from "halo" to "community"? Bioniclepluslotr 23:46, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Updated Block Notice Edit

I like the new block notice. It states all the info you need to know (like the time and the intended blockee). It's easier to see the reasons and is there has been any mistake about the block. Who agrees? Bioniclepluslotr 02:30, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Another reason I like the new upgrade. Bioniclepluslotr 02:04, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Featured Article Edit

I would like to request that Halo: The Cole Protocol become a featured improvement article. I was trying to learn more about it, but there is an appalling lack of good information here on Halopedia. All the Halo books have a complete synopsis except for The Cole Protocol. Lets get that taken care of. Mcloganator

That's what i was thinking. Bioniclepluslotr 02:51, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Update Edit

How come, even with the new update, we still don't have the ability to have a list appear for a link during editing. For example, when we type in part of a word or title of an article or image in brackets in other wikis, a list of all articles or images with matching letters comes up. We don't have that here. Bioniclepluslotr 02:42, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Because nobody likes that feature. How come, even with the new update, you insist on flooding this talk page with useless dribble? — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 14:26, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
i'm sorry but i wanted to clarify a few things. Bioniclepluslotr 22:10, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
well, the feature is working now. Bioniclepluslotr 22:10, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Rapid Conversion Picture Edit

For the last few days, there was a picture on the Rapid Converstion page of what they thought it looked like, it was from a 'unknown artist'. Its gone now and I presume its got something to do with the artist not wanting it up? I'm just wondering if anyone knows how I can get in contact with the artist or the person that put it up/took it down. I am very interested in this picture.

The artist you seek is The Nameless-Designer.- KAC 13:57, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
