Problem with the info on font colors[edit]

Uh... yeah. Guys, don't use the HTML FONT tag. It's deprecated -- for those who aren't experienced with web development, that means that the FONT tag

  • Sucks -- CSS is much more powerful.
  • It's outdated, it's obsolete.
  • Support for it will be dropped in the future -- web browsers will stop supporting it, and it will stop working.

SPAN tags with CSS are much better for a few reasons.

  • They're not deprecated -- they will, for all of the foreseeable future, always work.
  • You can use multiple properties on them without requiring multiple elements. The code "<span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold; color: red">Italic bold red text</span>" is more memory-efficient for users than "<b><i><font color="red">Italic bold red text</font></i></b>", even though it's longer.
  • You can specify the color as a name (color:red, though the choices are limited), hex triplet (color:#FF0000), shorthand hex triplet (color:#F00 = color:#FF0000), or RGB (color:rgb(255,0,0)) -- it's much more flexible.

So, in summation, try to stay away from FONT tags, and this article needs to be changed to stop recommending them. DavidJCobb 22:05, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Renaming a page[edit]

How do you rename a page? Is there a template that lets you change it, for example, "automaticly" to "automatically"? Specops306, Kora 'Morhek

There should be a tab on the upper righht hand corner of a page which sys "Move". It is next to the "History" and "Watch" tabs. You can use this to move pages. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15px]] 01:06, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

What does "You can not create a poll until you have at least 3 edits" mean?[edit]

What does "You can not create a poll until you have at least 3 edits" mean? i dont get it! I just joined halopedia because it looked awesome...and it says "You cannot create a poll til you have atleast 3 edits...I DONT KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!

It means exactly what it says. Edit three articles - improving spelling, adding new information, or rewording a sentence/paragraph/section to be better. -- CoH|Councillor]] Specops306 - Kora 'Morhek 20:47, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Editing $1 what[edit]

What does the $1 mean are you charging money for this or what? (DisturbedScorch 14:42, 10 June 2009 (UTC))

What exactly are you talking about? Just Ctrl+F'd the article, the phrase "$1" never even appears in it. File:DavidJCobb_Emblem.png|16px]] DavidJCobb 00:27, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
The template on the left side. That's what he means. No, we are not charging for it (what the hell would we be charging for edits for anyway?!). That is an error. SmokeSound off! 00:55, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Page Dimwitts[edit]

Ever heard of those people who just go into a page and start deleting information and adding annoying messages like "Darth Vader Im dying"? yeah, found one of those people doing that to the spartan laser page. any way to ban those kinds of people? cause i would really like a button that just says ban this user for destroying a page full of vital information. -- 09:59, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry, I have reported them. Also, thank you for reverting the mess they made. - Ascy 'Vamal Light your way with honour! 10:02, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
