  • If an article is not approved for featuring, it must wait one month before it can be nominated again.

Meridian (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Actually kind of happy with how this article turned out. An informative article on Meridian's history, geography, government, economy, and culture with some behind the scenes trivia. The article is properly referenced and comprehensive. Lots of quotes and images (special thanks to Chronarch) too.

San'Shyuum (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Well-sourced (a loooot of sources), as many decent quotes as I could find, comprehensive, and lots of nice pics. I've been working on this article for a while and Pokemon Go didn't help me at all, but I finally sat down today to finish it and I think it turned out pretty good. The quote I used for the "Reproduction and life cycle" section is pretty creepy though.

  • However, should we add the image of Tem'Bhetek to the post-war section? Also, the image of the reformists is technically from the San'Shyuum meeting the Sangheili on Ulgethon, isn't it? Not the time of the schism. -Japeth555
    • For Tem, I was thinking about it, but I'd rather wait until we get a higher quality one from Mythos. To be honest, that's one of the reasons why I haven't bothered nominating his article to be featured either, as I prefer them to have the best pics possible. As for the Reformists, you're right, but I just threw it in there to give readers an idea as to what the Reformists looked like. They are still Reformists after all. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 18:49, 13 July 2016 (EDT)

Installation 07 (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Very comprehensive and detailed, thoroughly sourced, and now even featuring a few more images to make it look nicer.

Comments[edit]

I disagree. The notion that the SoS and the UNSC were jointly controlling it and watching for the Flood still seems like it could have been a mistake where installation 05 was meant instead. Also, there is not note about how it is curious that Lasky didn't bring 07 up in Halo 4 when he mentioned Halo rings under UNSC control, such as 05 and 03. I think there are still too many problems here. Japeth555 (talk) 13:14, 13 October 2016 (EDT)Japeth555

You're right in that those bits are questionable, especially Catalog's statement. We could always choose to politely ignore it, maybe relegate it in the "Production notes" section, or just slap a note on it. As for the second one, technically Halo 4 is two years after Hunters in the Dark. Something could've happened that led to Lasky not including 07. --Jugus (talk) 00:22, 14 October 2016 (EDT)

Forgot about this. Is it good to nominate? --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 15:33, 3 November 2016 (EDT)

Go for it.--Spartacus TalkContribs 17:11, 3 November 2016 (EDT)

000 Tragic Solitude (Approved)[edit]

Reason: A comprehensive article on a character that has largely only appeared on text, though with two relevant images. Contains a lot of appropriate sources and quotes.

Great job. I wonder of we should include an image perhaps of text from one of Halo 3's terminals, since there is such a lack of images. —This unsigned comment was made by Japeth555 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Is that meant to be a vote of support Japeth?--Spartacus TalkContribs 16:35, 20 November 2016 (EST)
Eh, I don't think it is necessary. In my opinion, an article doesn't actually need images to be considered "featured", but as long as it is well-written. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 20:40, 20 November 2016 (EST)
Definitely. There's a lot of subjects that have only appeared in non-visual media that still have well-written articles, so the lack of images alone shouldn't hold back a feature. --Jugus (talk) 00:15, 23 November 2016 (EST)
