i thought that making this forum would make things much easier, for there are many questions im sure people have but cant find the answer to on this site, but would like it answered. So people may post there questions here on this forum, and people who do know an answer may post it, this would be really hlpful to many individuals.--The Grave Mind 17:06, 18 October 2011 (EDT)

Or maybe make a Q and A system similar to what we had on wikia?--光环的家伙 (H1234-NET) 23:31, 18 October 2011 (EDT)
Well here's one. Q: I know how to change the CCS for the upper margin picture of the wiki, but how do I change the logo? What's the template CCS I can use to code one in? Ιι Ηη Ππ 21:44, 28 October 2011 (EDT)

Q:Seeing as spartans were very efficient during the war and after the war humans on earth think that none of them are left; could future spartan programs (such as a spartan IV program) be made? from Anamananonymous

Yes. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 22:45, 4 November 2011 (EDT)

A. Well yes. There's that. But the reason for it is that the SPARTAN Program was originally developed to counter Insurrectionist attacks. And with the Human-Covenant War at an end, Spartans can continue to operate against rebel forces. (No Star Wars reference intended) Ιι Ηη Ππ 19:55, 6 November 2011 (EST)

Ok but now since the humans and the elites are allies could elite canidates be selected for the new Spartan program. Just saying since if anybody would know how strong Spartans are it would be the eiltes. from Anamananonymous

I don't think the UNSC would recruit aliens for it's military. That's like saying the United States recruited Russians for it's military during the Cold War. Also when making a comment on a forum, talk page, etc., sign your name by typing four tildes (~~~~), not writing "Anamananonymous".--Lt. Commander 光环的家伙1234 Talk (Contribs) (Edits) 23:46, 8 November 2011 (EST)

The United States does do joint military exercises with Russia now though. I could see the UNSC and the Elites doing this if they were worried that the flood or something worse might still be out there. Sorry, i've only been posting if im mad also one of my first times. think i did it right WOW!!! name signature fail—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

I know "Anamananonymous" sounds cool/funny/original, but either you make an account or just do it correctly. "<!-- ... -->" hides the content inside the place of "...". You did it almost correctly. Just type "Anamananonymous ~~~~". —S331 (The anti-social contributor who talks too little.) 21:19, 10 November 2011 (EST)

Q: I've been wondering about two things for quite a while now, the first thing: In some articles with only one trivia, should I still add bullet points? I've had a few of my edits undone for doing this, but on a few artlicles (such as this one) there are bullet points. The other thing is, how should I be spelling things? I'm English so I automatically spell "armor" as armour, etc. Thanks. --Tentacletornado 13:38, 11 November 2011 (EST)

If there's only one point in the trivia section, there is no need for a bullet point; the points are used to disambiguate. As Halo is owned and maintained by companies in the United States, American English is used on Halopedia.-- Forerunner 13:55, 11 November 2011 (EST)
Ah, Ok. I'm starting to wish you hadn't said that about bullet points, i'm finding loads of articles with unneeded ones! --Tentacletornado 14:03, 11 November 2011 (EST)
I'm getting quite confused, am I meant to add or delete bullet points? Some people are saying yes, some are saying no... --Tentacletornado 15:13, 29 November 2011 (EST)

Someone is yet to answer my question... Ιι Ηη Ππ 14:34, 11 November 2011 (EST)

It depends how strongly the rebels come back. The Covenant hit them hard. --Dragonclaws(talk) 21:25, 13 November 2011 (EST)
You mean your CSS question? You can refer to wiki's css and search for "#site-logo". You can override all changes by adding a custom css to your own css page.— subtank 05:08, 14 November 2011 (EST)
I figured it out... I guess. Oh, and just to put some notice to it, I posted on the discussion page for Top Shot. Just something that might want to be added to the article. Ιι Ηη Ππ 06:43, 14 November 2011 (EST)

Q. Were there 8 or 12 marathon class cruisers at the battle of earth there seems to be a discrepency in the articleZerion299 20:53, 6 December 2011 (EST)

How was Jerald Mulkey Ander born on harvest before it was colonized? -- abyscidis 13 december 2011

Apparently... via magic. That's a mistake on the part of the author. pestilence Phil, pestilence! 22:45, 13 December 2011 (EST)
Though on the article it is not mentioned to be a mistake.:/--Commander Spartacus (Tenth Roman Battalion) 00:08, 14 December 2011 (EST)

Q. Could someone explain to me ( In as simple terms as possible, I'm not very computer savvy) how to create a signature? Thelvadamee96 17:00, 24 December 2011 (EST)

Try Halopedia:Signature policy and try here. Just click the view source tab for the coding I use.-- Commander Spartacus ~ ŤДŁĶ ~ ĈʘŃŤṜǏΒŨŤǏʘŃŞ ~ ĚṂДǏŁ 17:02, 24 December 2011 (EST)

Q. Did everyone in the ORION program have Boren's Syndrome or was it just Johnson. —This unsigned comment was made by NemeanCerberus (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

A. Boren's Syndrome dosent really exist; it is a cover-up for the ORION Project's effects, so they would, then, all have "had" it. Sign your posts. DefeatingLine 18:14, 22 February 2012 (EST)

Q. Does that mean that the ORION project found what the forunners couldn't?--NemeanCerberus 19:57, 5 March 2012 (EST)

A. The ORION Project has so far not had any relation to the Forerunners. I'm not sure if I understand your question.--Spartacus TalkContribs
I think that the question was referring a cure/immunity to the Flood. Hadn't a cure been found, but lost? DefeatingLine 21:24, 5 March 2012 (EST)
Yes, actually. In Halo: Cryptum it is revealed that humans had figured out a cure for the Flood, but chose not to tell the Forerunners as revenge for destroying their civilization and exiling them back to Earth.--Spartacus TalkContribs
Primordium counters that, and says that whatever humans and Forerunners thought, there really never was a cure - it was all just a Flood/Precursor test of humanity's mettle. As for the Borens Syndrome, we're still not sure if that exists, whether it stopped the Flood infecting Johnson or if it was his own skill, or whether it was an intentional result of his augmentations rather than an unfortunate side-effect. Halsey, medical genius that she is, doesn't give him a clean bill of health, regardless of his condition's origin. -- Specops306 Autocrat Qur'a 'Morhek 00:24, 6 March 2012 (EST)

This may not be the proper place or time, but i'm curious as to what you're favorite halo level is. personally mine is HALO from Combat Evolved.Weeping Angel 21:34, 10 March 2012 (EST)

My favorite Halo level of all time is Long Night of Solace from Halo: Reach, mainly because of the space combat.--Spartacus TalkContribs 21:58 10 March 2012 (EST)
Well, it's a forum for questions, so I guess anything goes?
Mine is Halo, from Halo: CE. All that talk 343i is building up about how Halo 4 will bring back the feeling of exploring something vast? That's what Halo did for me. I'll never forget...well, practically every moment of it! Crawling out of the lifeboat wreck, finding the Marines you thought you had saved dead, is a powerful moment dealt with only a few words - fantastic. Linking up with Johnson's squad and fending off dropships. Heading out with a pair of Marines in a Warthog, and rounding up survivors - being able to navigate a wide range of play spaces in any order you choose. That, especially, is why I fell in love with Halo as a series. The level has a feeling of vastness, of scale, of grandeur, and is beautiful to look at, even in the old graphics. To me, that single level represents the entire series. -- Specops306 Autocrat Qur'a 'Morhek 05:27, 11 March 2012 (EDT)
The Covenant from Halo 3. It's the combination of almost every iconic moment in the Halo series. Landing on a hot LZ that's a beach (The Silent Cartographer from CE), driving the Hog on a Forerunner grassy landscape (Halo from CE), traveling above water and a Prophet's death (Regret from 2), watching Elites fights Brutes (Gravemind from 2), entering a Control Room (Assault on the Control Room from CE) to stop activation of the Halo Array (The Great Journey from 2), two betrayals (exactly what it says on the tin), and escaping from the Flood (343 Guilty Spark from CE and High Charity from 2). Heck, Pelican crashes. Twice. Indoor and outdoor. —S331 (COMMission LogProfile) 06:37, 11 March 2012 (EDT)

The Maw from Halo:CE. A four faction miniature war in a ship between the covenant, flood, sentinals, and John-117 and who else wins but the Chief.--NemeanCerberus 21:50, 13 March 2012 (EDT)


Should we have something about the Halo Bulletin here? It seems to me that it could be quite useful to people who don't know about it or just want more info on it.Weeping Angel 19:46, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

Alright you can just forget that I said that now. Gosh I feel stupid: halo Bulletin.--Weeping Angel 21:44, 27 May 2012 (EDT)

Q: In Halo 4, the preorder exclusives are just special skins to non-exclusive armors, right? So does that mean that there are non-exclusive skins too? Bioniclepluslotr 18:02, 11 June 2012 (EDT)

A. 1st question- yes. 2nd question- most likely.--Killamint KillaEX 13:06, 10 July 2012 (EDT)

Q How did Regret find Installation 05's location?Missing Mandible 21:50, 16 June 2012 (EDT)

A. Not sure.--Killamint KillaEX 13:06, 10 July 2012 (EDT)

Q How did you get the Halo 4 font used in the current Halopedia logo? 13:52, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

Q: Will Halo 4 coop have two players as The Master Chief, or will the other player be a Spartan-IV? Post your thoughtsGMASTER 22:56, 25 August 2012 (EDT)GMASTER

I'm thinking that it'll be a second master chief since he lands on Requiem BEFORE the UNSC Infinity, and he had never laid eyes on that ship before as far as I know. Just my 2 centsWeeping Angel 23:07, 25 August 2012 (EDT)

A. Here's my theory: The other players will be MC for the first few missions before you encounter the Infinity and after you make it to the ship, the other players will become S-IV's (either your custom made one or default models).--Killamint [Comm|Files] 12:42, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

-Probably, that's what I was thinking... ~~GMASTER


Seems like this type of thread is quite popular. I'll take the initiative and create a proper Q&A page on Project:Community/QA. This thread will be locked as a result. Keep on asking! :D — subtank 00:42, 2 September 2012 (EDT)
