About meHi, my name is Stephen! Long-time Halo fan. Mainly known in the community for articles on Halo.Bungie.Org involving the scale of the objects in the Halo universe and analyses of various aspects of Halo lore. Love any and all discussions about the Halo story.

I'm fortunate to be asked to regularly contribute to various Halo publications, including the Halo: The Essential Visual Guide, Halo 4: The Essential Visual Guide, and Halo: Mythos with 343 Industries as their Halo fact-checker, reviewer, and general consultant. For Halo Warfleet, I provided a bunch of up-front research into the ships highlighted in the book along with establishing many technical details in addition to the usual text and illustration reviews. I also contributed some corrections to the Definitive Editions of the original 3 Halo novels and supplied corrections for the second version of the Halo Encyclopedia.

Thanks. Also, as a follow-up question on the matter of the galaxy map in Warfleet, do you think the Halo locations shown on the map can be thought of as valid, at least in terms of which spiral arm each ring is located in?

Hey, Jugus here. I was wondering if you'd be able to shed any light into the issue I brought up a while back on the Preceptor talk page. Warfleet's info seems contradictory on whether they are supposed to be live Forerunners or Guardian-like robots.

Ahh thats cool. Love trivia like that.

The first EVG is also annoying at times for being specific to one model and then saying it appears in other media despite that specific model only being in 1 game. Something you may have noticed here and there in it. (Yes yes I know it was for convenience on the reader cause it was squishing a lot of games into 1 book)

I am kinda under the impression the EVG is primary talking about the Halo Reach one. Kinda what I plan to use to say the Morsam lacks the fuel rod weaponry.

Hey,

I'm really sorry to hear that. I had a look back at the logs of the issue, and you were totally in the right; Haloprov shouldn't have reverted your edits. I know it probably doesn't mean much now, but allow me to take this opportunity to apologise on behalf of the site for that. Reverting without adequately explaining why is definitely a problem that a couple of Halo Nation administrators have, and since my tenure as admin began, it's been something I have tried to discourage to the best of my ability. In your case, I'm guessing that your edits were reverted because they did not provide a source (although that's not really a good excuse to revert an edit unless the information is false, which yours wasn't).

Nevertheless, I understand and respect your decision. I'm sorry that the issue has caused you to feel this way about Halo Nation - you have my word we'll try to do better in future.

Sincerely,

Dab1001

Apologies! I kinda messed that first message up by forgetting to use proper wiki syntax. What I meant to say was:

Hey, would you mind if we use this image of yours on Halo Nation (halo.wikia.com)? We're currently lacking in good images of the Kai-pattern, so we'd really appreciate it if you'd allow us to use it.

Thanks,

Kinda' what I figured. Thanks anyway.

Somebody was asking what the size of the buildings were in Halo Wars over at Halo Archive. You wouldn't happen to have an answer would you?

Something I noticed from the Visual Guide and was curious about: According page 111, the CSO supercarrier is capable of cloaking itself with active camo. Before the guide, I had assumed the tele-spires were what was cloaking the supercarrier (kinda how the stealth pylon was cloaking the area from radar.) The CSO article brings up the question of why such a large ship was able to cloak itself when smaller Covenant ships don't appear to be able to. Were you there when that aspect was being discussed and do you have any possibly insight on it?

Smaller forerunner Artillery guns in Spartan ops?
