Forums: Index Community Proposal Significant Waypoint Update

For those of you unaware, Halo Waypoint has received a significant update to its layout and overall design. Due to this, all links previously available prior to 14 October (?) no longer exist. Please replace all links whenever you see one.--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:23, 14 October 2014 (EDT)


I don't know about anyone else but I'm not feeling the change all that much. Maybe it's just me but I liked it the way it was before. Asside from the title imagery (some of it based on Halo5 concept art), I don't like the plain white background and "blog" style format. The white background works wonders on this site but not there. I honestly can't stand how these companies keep changing their website's format to this new format. The exact same thing happened with cardomain. Before, it was nice and simple, and allowed people to customize their profile/ride pages to their liking. Then all of a sudden they change it to this "blog" style non-sense and completely destroyed user's profiles that took years to develop and design (yes I was a victim of this). All because they believe the html format was outdated. Sure, Halo waypoint was already blog style but this new update seems to have made it worst. Navigation seems to be a little bit easier but I don't like the overall apperance and format. Don't kill me for what I said, this is just first impressions on the update.--Killamin7 [Comm|Files] 12:56, 14 October 2014 (EDT)

In my 4+ years of waypoint, I haven't liked the updates much. I used to like this one but now less, forum at least. Erickyboo (talk) 21:02, 14 October 2014 (EDT)
Well, minimalistic design is the "in" design nowadays. Fits with their "Windows 8/10" agenda. — subtank 11:26, 15 October 2014 (EDT)
I don't really mind the update. I prefer white over dark and I like that they've now given users more ability to customise their profile.--Spartacus TalkContribs 12:10, 15 October 2014 (EDT)
I realized that and I've caught on to what they're doing. I just wish they'd make it a little bit better and more simple/user-friendly than what it is. Maybe I'm just one of those people who's not with the "in" crowd. I have windows 8.1 which is alright but that metro/tile interface crap is unnecessary imo and I hardly use it.--Killamin7 [Comm|Files] 12:07, 15 October 2014 (EDT)

Cataloging and sourcing

A lot of information that was on the web seems gone. The waypoint app seems to still have it. How should we source things that are on the waypoint Xbox app? And how do we catalog them in case they're disappear? Should we take pictures? I'd like to edit some stuff but it's the waypoint app. I feel like armor mods need some work.

I have a feeling all of the missing information will be included in the "Universe" section on Waypoint coming out on the 11th of November. For example, the Waypoint articles on Arcadia, Algolis, or the HEV. - NightHammer (talk) 21:41, 14 October 2014 (EDT)
If we can't find them on the new site we could always try an archived version--Soul reaper (talk) 11:00, 15 October 2014 (EDT)
Not the first time we had this issue. I would suggest we wait until upgrades to the site are final and complete. I assume this will be done before the release of HMCC. — subtank 11:17, 15 October 2014 (EDT)
