From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Halo Waypoint has been updated numerous times since its inception in September 2009 when the site was first created. Sometimes these updates are treated like a refresh of the site and all content is removed in favor of starting anew. Halopedia records each "refresh" as a new "Era" in order to keep information organised.
