  • This thread will be used to keep everyone on Halo Nation informed of the progress of the merger of Halo Nation into Halopedia.

    • Just a minor update: The content of this wiki has now been copied over to the temporary wiki. The Halopedia and Halo Nation staff are going to look over the protected pages in the Project (a.k.a. Halo Nation) and Help namespaces and merge them into Halopedia's respective pages, and once that's done, we plan to open up the temporary wiki so that everyone can help out with merging the rest. I'll keep everyone posted when that time comes.

    • So, very little has happened publicly since the merger, aside from the fact that the majority of Halo Nation's admin staff have been made into Patrollers on Halopedia, and will be having RfAs at some point in the near future.

      On the private side of things, we're getting close to finishing merging Halo Nation's policies with Halopedia's. Once that's done, we intend to make the temporary wiki (which we've been calling the "test wiki") public so that everyone can begin merging HN's content into Halopedia's.

      Additionally, when policies are done, we're going to do the final stage of the merger on this wiki's end: rebranding and renaming this wiki. After exploring a number of options, including "Halo Hub" and "Spartapedia" (both of which were sadly taken), our current pick for this wiki's name is "Halo Alpha", as suggested by TheRequiemEmpire. If you have any suggestions of your own, please post them here as soon as possible - we'll use whatever is the most popular name at the time we get around to rebranding this wiki, which may be as soon as this weekend.

      After this wiki has been rebranded, I will stop posting on (and looking at) this thread, as there will be nothing left that users of this wiki will need to be kept informed about. To monitor the progress of the merger after that, I recommend joining Halopedia's Discord server or keeping an eye on Halopedia's forums.

    • I'm preparing to do the rebranding as I type. It should be complete by this evening.

    • Rebranding's part-way done, but I'm not quite happy with it yet. A bunch of old assets are currently cached server-side, and I need to wait for the caches to update to the new assets I've uploaded before I can do the final touches and fine-tuning. Apologies for the slightly shoddy looking wiki in the meantime - there's nothing I can do to force the caches to update, so I've just got to wait.

    • Halo Alpha is a good name, but seeing as how the current rebranding looks I feel a name like "The Halo Domain" would be more suitable. In my opinion "Halo Hub" would've been the best option had it not been taken already.

      A question though: what hapens to the Portal templates that were in use on the Main Page? Will they be deleted, discarded, or modified to fit the newer theme?

    • I'm fairly certain that Halo Domain was another name we looked at but which was taken - don't quote me on that, though. As for the Portal templates, any references to "Halo Nation" will be changed to "Halo Alpha", and they'll be recoloured to suit the new theme. However, I see no reason they would be deleted or discarded.

    • Alright, another update. I apologise for the delays, but I've been going through some personal loss recently, which has caused me to be distracted and inactive. I don't know how long it will take for things to return to normal for me, so I've asked the other admins to finish off the rebranding of the wiki. Please direct any questions or concerns to them rather than me.
