From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

UNSC Pillar of Autumn (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Well referenced and sourced, plenty of images, and well detailed overall. It is one of the most noteworthy named vessels of the Halcyon-class light cruiser, and the predecessor of the newer Autumn-class heavy cruiser. The Autumn played a pivotal role in the Battle of Installation 04. And also because it should be given another try. --Xamikaze330 [Transmission|Commencing] 18:55, 27 January 2014 (EST)Xamikaze330

Date of nomination: 1/27/2014



Shall we make this a featured article? Is three support votes enough? Does anyone else care to vote? --Xamikaze330 [Transmission|Commencing] 12:07, 3 February 2014 (EST)Xamikaze330
It still has another week open for voting. At this point, I'd say it's probably enough support, but it wouldn't hurt to have more.--Spartacus TalkContribs 12:17, 3 February 2014 (EST)

Tick.JPG Done--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:50, 10 February 2014 (EST)

Halo 2 Collector's Edition (Approved)[edit]

Reason: I think the presentation of the article serves the article well, giving it a clean look. Though it lacks transcripts from each video, what the article does best is providing readers the best collection of videos without ever needing to leave the article. Date of nomination: 18:13, 23 June 2014 (EDT)



Tick.JPG Done--Spartacus TalkContribs 12:44, 9 July 2014 (EDT)

Thomas Lasky (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Well sourced, many images, and very comprehensive. Lasky is becoming one of the larger characters in the Halo universe and he is a very notable individual. The article contains all information relevant to Thomas Lasky.

Date of nomination: 9:48, 26 August 2014 (EDT)



Has it been long enough for a consensus to be made? - NightHammer (talk) 18:43, 15 September 2014 (EDT)

I totally forgot about this nomination (I blame Destiny!), but since there is unanimous approval, I will add it to the list.--Spartacus TalkContribs 19:25, 16 September 2014 (EDT)

Erde-Tyrene civilization (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Very well-written and sourced. There is little to no grammar, pronunciation, or spelling errors. Contains a fitting quote and images in my opinion. The civilization is an interesting part of the Halo lore.

Date of nomination: 22:48, 3 October 2014 (EDT)

  • Support.svg Support - As per nomination.Sith-venator Wavingstrider Fett helmet.jpg (Commlink) 13:54, 4 October 2014 (EDT)
  • Support.svg Support - It's nicely comprehensive for something so obscure. Wish we had more diverse images from official stuff though (e.g. examples of their tech like airships or steamboats). --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 09:15, 5 October 2014 (EDT)


Is this ready to be a featured article? - NightHammer (talk) 17:42, 31 October 2014 (EDT)

It's got sufficient support. I'll try to get it featured sometime this weekend if I have the time.--Spartacus TalkContribs 17:56, 31 October 2014 (EDT)

Ur-Didact (Closed)[edit]

Reason: Well-sourced and very comprehensive. The Ur-Didact is now a major character in the Halo franchise and his article is very well-written.

Date of nomination: 19:38, 20 November 2014 (EDT)



Ripa 'Moramee (Closed)[edit]

Reason: The article is comprehensive and contains little to no grammar, pronunciation, or spelling errors. It is well-sourced and Ripa is a notable character in the Halo universe.

Date of nomination: 19:38, 20 November 2014 (EDT)



Halo: Faith (Approved)[edit]

Reason: It comprehensively covers virtually everything we know about this cut-short fan film, from screenplay to casting to budget to music. It's an unusual choice, since it's not an official piece of Halo media, but it's just as detailed as one, and so worth giving attention.

Date of nomination: 03:43, 4 February 2015 (EST)


Halo: Nightfall (Closed)[edit]

Reason: It is a great article and I don't see any grammar mistakes or anything, so I guess it is suitable for FA status.

Date of Nomination: 17:37, 14 March 2015 (Indian Standard Time).

Nominator: Coolbuddy379


  • Oppose.svg Oppose - A lot of red still exists on the Halo: Nightfall page, and the actual show wasn't the most well received Halo show. SamGall (talk) 15:17, 14 March 2015 (EDT)
  • Oppose.svg Oppose - Same as Sam. Though how the film is received by the community should not factor in judging the article.--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:20, 23 March 2015 (EDT)
  • Oppose.svg Oppose - The red links alone take away from the article. The article could still use some expansion, especially since the DVD just came out. - NightHammer (talk) 20:21, 23 March 2015 (EDT)

High Charity (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Lots of detail, clear and concise about a major subject, up to date, and the shiny pictures don't hurt.

Date of nomination: 00:13, 23 March 2015 (EDT)


Rampancy (Approved)[edit]

Reason: This article comprehensively covers a concept unique to Halo (and Marathon) and is pretty well arranged and improved from the mess it used to be.

Date of nomination: 01:43, 10 April 2015 (EDT)


M808 Scorpion (Approved)[edit]

Reason: This article sums up a lot of detailed content from an abundance of depictions in a succinct and well-organized manner.

Date of nomination: 01:43, 10 April 2015 (EDT)


Forerunner-Flood war (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Chronicles one of the Halo universe's most significant and complicated events very thoroughly and seamlessly integrates more recent Forerunner Saga material with prior sources — and does all this with a relative clarity and conciseness.

Date of nomination: 16:19, 12 April 2015 (EDT)


Halo Array (Approved)[edit]

Reason: A very comprehensive, well-sourced and well-illustrated article about the series' namesake superweapons.

Date of nomination: 16:19, 12 April 2015 (EDT)


Halo: A Fistful of Arrows (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Probably the best Halo fanwork out there. Maybe even the best Halo comic ever written. And its page shows the loads of detail, compelling characters, and amazing artwork that make it that.

Date of nomination: 04:28, 4 May 2015 (EDT)


  • Support.svg Support - Per nomination. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 04:28, 4 May 2015 (EDT)

  • Support.svg Support - As per everyone else.--Spartacus TalkContribs 20:27, 5 May 2015 (EDT)

Halo: Contact Harvest (Approved)[edit]

Reason: I should probably be working on Broken Circle/New Blood/Spartan Strike/Nightfall/Hunters in the Dark, but I noticed that Wikipedia's article on Contact Harvest was better and a featured article there. So, borrowing some of Wikipedia's sources and some of my own, I expanded our own article on Contact Harvest. I believe that the article is well-sourced, has a sufficient plot summary, effectively details the development and reception of the novel, and I added some missing characters to the "Appearances" section. I believe that this article includes all relevant information on the novel.

Date of nomination: 12:23, 30 June 2015 (EDT)


SPARTAN-B312 (Approved)[edit]

Reason: It's been a while since there's been a featured character page, and this one is well-organized, not messy, about a major character, and filled with all the relevant details about them without being too stretched or crammed. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 03:48, 28 July 2015 (EDT)

Date of nomination: 03:48, 28 July 2015 (EDT)


Battle of Harvest (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Lots of relevant quotes, properly sourced, and properly formatted and well-organized. The information is accurate and detailed, with relevant pictures. The Battle of Harvest is one of the major battles of the Covenant War, and the first major UNSC victory. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 18:05, 21 August 2015 (EDT)

Date of nomination: 18:05, 21 August 2015 (EDT)


Battle of Installation 04 (Approved)[edit]

Reason: A comprehensive article about one of the most important battles in the Halo canon that integrates tons of info from a multitude of sources.

Date of nomination: 20:28, 30 September 2015 (EDT)


Samuel-034 (Approved)[edit]

Reason: A comprehensive article on the character with lots of sources, images, and quotes.

Date of nomination: 13:21, 10 November 2015 (EDT)


Olympia Vale (Approved)[edit]

Reason: The article is comprehensive with lots of sources (I literally went to Waypoint and searched through every article that mentioned her), and has lots of quotes and images. As a playable character in Halo 5, Vale's article may be viewed more than others on here.

Date of nomination: 21:20, 30 December 2015 (EDT)

  • Support.svg Support - Sure.--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:33, 1 January 2016 (EST)

Frederic-104 (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Comprehensive with a lot of references, quality images, and quotes. Fred is a relatively important character in the Halo universe and one of the most popular Spartans.

Date of nomination: 16:56, 19 March 2015 (EDT)


  • Support.svg Support - Per nomination. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 16:56, 19 March 2016 (EDT)
  • Support.svg Support - As with my first support. I do agree this should be added. Though I'd support Blue Team more if its ready instead? - CIA391 (talk) 17:12, 19 March 2016 (EDT)

  • Support.svg Support - It's looking really good. Best part is the many relevant quotes for each section. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 18:57, 19 March 2016 (EDT)

  • Support.svg Support - Great job! --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 13:17, 20 March 2016 (EDT)

Operation: TALON (Approved)[edit]

Reason: Another comprehensive article that details the first mission of the Spartan-IIs with lots of relevant quotes and images. I used basically every source available and took cation so I didn't include any weird additions only seen in adaptations (unless they could realistically fit in with the novel without causing any issues).

Date of nomination: 20:29, 26 March 2015 (EDT)



Should we replace the image of Sam using an SMG with another image that doesnt play so fast and loose with the canon? - Japeth555

I was thinking about it and if you guys would prefer another infobox image, then I can easily replace it with the image in the gallery of Laden arriving at the asteroid (it was the original infobox pic when I was working on the article, though I felt that a pic of Watts' actual capture would be better). --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 20:55, 26 March 2016 (EDT)
John aiming at Watts perfectly encapsulates the battle and it's also one of the better looking images that are featured for this article. Helianthus All right. Shoot!
I also second John aiming at Watts. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 00:23, 27 March 2016 (EDT)
Do you mean Sam aiming at Watts? Or is there another image I'm forgetting about. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 11:04, 2 April 2016 (EDT)

John-117 (Closed)[edit]

Reason: It is an enormous article describing service record of the main protagonist of the entire Halo series. It is well sourced and quoted, has lots of pictures, and is rather detailed.

Date of nomination: 16:47, 11 April 2016 (EDT)



Honestly, the article is in decent condition. It has a lot of good quotes and pics, but I have a few issues. Most importantly, the article needs some references in some places (particularly in older sections). Secondly, (this is just my opinion) I'm not a fan of having small subsections with only a couple sentences. Obviously, it is unavoidable in some cases, but I find it happens a bit too frequently in this article. Most of it can be resolved by either merging them into a larger subsection (kind of what I did with parts of Fred's article) or in some cases, the subsection can just be expanded upon (such as Sigma Octanus). I was actually working on John's article on the side, though I've been too busy with uni lately to work on it. I can add part of that to this article to help though. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 18:34, 11 April 2016 (EDT)

Ok, yeah, you're right. But as for me, i don't see any problems with small sections. It's like military service record, where each event, every single operation deserves it's own paragraph, even if it's small one. Maybe one day we'll got the chance to fill in the blanks. Besides it will be shame to loose a few good quotes, they suits well. But again, this is my opinion. --Necrontir 19:33, 11 April 2016 (EDT)

I closed it for now due to lack of votes, though I hope one day to see the article here again. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 00:47, 2 May 2016 (EDT)

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.

Date of nomination: 00:47, 2 May 2016 (EDT)


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.

Date of nomination: 18:38, 13 July 2016 (EDT)



  • 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.

Date of nomination: 12:35, 13 October 2016 (EDT)



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.

Date of nomination: 12:39, 20 November 2016 (EDT)



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)

SPARTAN-II program (Denied)[edit]

Reason: A detailed and well-written article about the protagonist super-soldiers of Halo

Date of nomination: 11:06, 23 March 2017 (EDT)


  • Support.svg Support -- Per nomination, although I'm unsure whether I'm allowed to vote. Coolbuddy379 (COMLINK) (Service Record) 11:06, 23 March 2017 (EDT)
  • Support.svg Support--Spartacus TalkContribs 19:45, 24 March 2017 (EDT)
  • Oppose.svg Oppose -- Not a bad article at all, however it lacks many references in the body and the infobox, and most major sections lack quotes, of which there are many to choose from. The intro could also do with a large expansion, going into more detail about he program itself and covering its role in the Covenant War. The article also has a section on the Spartan-IIs in Halo Wars, but makes no mention of Halo Wars 2. Also, in my opinion, the "Publicity" sub-section should be moved to the bottom of the "Personnel" section as it's more about what the public has been told about the program, while the other sections are more directly about the Spartans. -- Topal the Pilot Blueteam.png (Talk|Contribs) 22:03, 24 March 2017 (EDT)

Tem'Bhetek (Approved)[edit]

Reason: I have been mostly waiting until we got a decent picture of him from Mythos. A comprehensive article with lots of quotes and sources on one of the few cool San'Shyuum characters.

Date of nomination: 1:06, 7 May 2017 (EDT)



Just one thing.. Should it really be called Tem'Bhetek's faction? BoruaNeem was the real mastermind behind everything. —This unsigned comment was made by Japeth555 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

True. Calling it Tem's faction never felt right to me. --Jugus (talk) 08:55, 7 May 2017 (EDT)
I'm still not sure if it should even have its own page to be honest. But yeah, the name isn't really the best for it. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 11:28, 7 May 2017 (EDT)

I suggest changing it to the "Minister-Prelate Alliance" or something like thatJapeth555 (talk) 11:30, 7 May 2017 (EDT)Japaeth555

Project CHRYSANTHEMUM (Approved)[edit]

Reason: I'm pretty happy with how this article turned out. It's sourced with all of the relevant material I could think of and it's pretty organized.

Date of nomination: 5/7/2017


  • Support.svg Support - Per nomination. It might need a separate section for the Spartan III's in MJOLNIR, but as it stands, I think it's pretty good.-Kal825B (talk) 22:06, 7 May 2017 (EDT)

James Cutter (Closed)[edit]

Reason: I have worked hard to make this article comprehensive and well-written. Admittedly, I would very much appreciate it if others would critique or improve it because I believe it could be granted Featured Status easily with a little tweaking.
