From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
An archive for posts by Halo franchise officials (primarily 343 Industries) on Halo.bungie.org forums, addressing or clarifying assorted canon issues. The basic idea of the page is to keep all significant potential source material in one place rather than always search for them when citing pages.
The following are some of the screen names used by Bungie and Microsoft employees on HBO: "Frankie" is Frank O'Connor, "Deckard" is Joseph Staten, "KG" is Kevin Grace, "GLYPH" is Jonathan Goff and "sketchfactor" is Brian Jarrard. Vociferous and Cocopjojo are former Ascendant Justice blog staff now working for 343 Industries.
