Hey ED thanks for the promotion, i didnt expected it. Clavix2 File:Halo2emblemClavix.jpg|30 I WILL PAY FOR ALL MY SINS 23:51, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Sure thing. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 02:16, 23 November 2007 (UTC)


Hey Ed,

Haven't spoken to you in a while, so I thought I'd pop by and say hi. :)

How's college going?

Ahh, it is completely outstanding in every way possible, Manticore. I don't know how I lived life before now. But I just got home for christmas break, so I'll be around a lot more the next few weeks has diminished my activity on Halopedia lately...

What about you? how are things? --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 06:41, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Haha, I know what you mean. School is so lame compared to uni. Things have been really good lately. I've finished uni for the year, so I've been really active lately around Wikia, probably too active. :P
I've replied to you on my talk page. :) -- Manticore File:Fleet Admiral.jpg|20px|Manticore is a Halopedia administrator.]] Talk | Contributions 23:19, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

IP Addresses[edit]

I thought we weren't supposed to give IPs user pages. Çya, MøuHalopedia:Parasite of Halopedia|s]]e 19:43, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

No one ever said that. It makes it easier for us to be able to track each one of their contributions, particularly if the IP address turns out to be a vandal. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 19:45, 23 November 2007 (UTC)


That means a lot, it's too bad out company is being disbanded, but I will still continue editing. --Justin Time 23:47, 23 November 2007 (UTC)


Wow, thanks for the help. Hopefully everyone will start using them now, I made them after the Beta but haven't seen them in use by anyone else. Thanks, simon rjh 12:18, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Not sure what you've done while sorting out the categories, but now </div><noinclude> appears next to the template! User:Simon rjh/Userboxes#Halo 3 Multiplayer Ranks I'm not sure how to fix this, so I'll let you do it for fear of making it worse. :) Thanks, simon rjh 10:48, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah...I've been trying to add a category for everyone that uses the userbox, but for some reason, the category won't display the people who are in it...I'm working on it. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 15:20, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

RE: Service Medals[edit]

Hello ED,

I'll put a link to them on the Member List page on the UNSC of Halopedia site.

Have a good day!

File:CommanderTony Logo.PNG|25 TonyTalk 11/26/2007

Much thanks. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 01:00, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
I have a related question - where do we put nominations? It says on "B Company's forum" ...which doesnt exist... simon rjh 22:50, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Very true. Does the UoH have a Forum? I couldnt think of anywhere else to put a nominations place, except in the service medal talk page...--EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 01:00, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Forge Team of Halopedia[edit]

I was wondering if you or any of the other Admins have thought this over yet. The previous message with most of the details is titled "Heys I Gots Ideas!" if you have not yet read it. Please tell me what you think at your earliest convienence. BTW sorry to be a pest, but I just am trying to find out as the community is more focused on other forum topics than this. WRAITH 21:59, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

What youre proposing sounds almost like a clan...we tried to organize one awhile back, but there really wasnt enough support to do so. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 01:01, 29 November 2007 (UTC)


Do I really need to explain this one? Çya, Møuse 22:42, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Taken care of. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 00:59, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

1st Marine Battalion[edit]

Hello ED,

Why did you redirect the 1st Marine Battalion page to the M-EDF 9/21/1' page?

It's a perfectly alright article in my opinion. I mean yeah, all we have on it is a small small mention, but thats enough.

Have a good day!

File:CommanderTony Logo.PNG|25 Halopedia:UNSC of Halopedia|General]] TonyTalk 11/29/2007

I was thinking about that just now actually. M-EDF 9/21/1 and the 1st Battalion are two names for the same unit, so I figured one should redirect to the other, and since M-EDF 9/21/1 was specifically names while "1st Marine Battalion" wasn't, I figured it would be a better idea. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 01:30, 29 November 2007 (UTC)


Hey, Thanks for redirecting Prophet Elite war. KamakaziSparow 02:36, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Sure thing. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 02:29, 6 December 2007 (UTC)


Looks like you've been busy with acronyms page. Peace. I'm On Fire! File:Unfreakinbelievable-2.jpg|30 FeedTheFlame WatchMySmoke 00:25, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

P.S., I sent you a friend request on XBL, my Gamertag is SpartanCharger. Peace.
That I have been. As to XBL, I may not be on for awhile, or very often, but I will try to accept your request next time I am on there. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 02:30, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

I dont know[edit]

I just got that info from the Joshua-029 page.--' Running' Riot RyanFile:'s_emblem.jpg|15 19:39, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Ok. James-001 added it to that page, so I will ask him then. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 19:47, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Re: Joshua-029[edit]

I'm not sure where or even if I remember reading that somewhere. I think I just put that there for speculation, or maybe I just assumed the majority of the Spartan-II's came from Eridanus II. Now that you mention it, I just finished reading Halo:FoR and FS and don't recall seeing any mention of Eridanus II. I'll continue checking, but in the mean time, you or I will fix that infobox. Peace. I'm On Fire! File:Unfreakinbelievable-2.jpg|30 FeedTheFlame WatchMySmoke 21:18, 6 December 2007 (UTC) :Perhaps this is where I got that information from, [1] User:CaptJim put that info on the Eridanus II page.

RE: Archive[edit]

Dear sir,

I actually would, except I'm perpetually lazy, and it is an extremely tedious process. I will resort to saying "I'll get around to it sometime" -- perhaps over this weekend? How're finals looking? How's studying been? :P


RelentlessRecusant 'o the [[haloalpha:Halopedia Team TALKMESSAGE 00:28, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Hah hah yeah it is, and you get lots of messages, I see. I'd do it for you, but its not that important... And as for exams, I actually finished them up before thanksgiving. OU has this really wierd schedule where I get a seven week winter break from Thanksgiving until New Years, so I've had more time to be on here. But, they were good. All A's and B's. Good luck on yours! --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 00:36, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Re: IRC functions[edit]

Hey ED,

This page has some information on commands, but the basic ones you need are:

  • /msg ChanServ op #halopedia - Ops you
  • /kick blah - kicks "blah" (replace with the nick you want to kick)

For banning, use:

/ban nick!user@host

So, if you want to ban "Manticore", you'd type /mode #halopedia +b Manticore!*@*

If you wanted to ban a particular IP address or cloak, you'd use /ban *!*@wikia/Manticore (wikia/Manticore is my cloak).

If you're banning someone who is using the gateway, type /ban *!*12345678@gateway/*

Where 12345678 is the alphanumeric string that is the users hex IP address.

If you've got any questions or need to know more, you can leave me a message or email. :)

Manticore (talk) 01:06, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Ahh, ok. Much thanks. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 01:18, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

An Image[edit]

How did you get this picture: [2] onto Halopedia, becuase when ever I try to save that type of image from my service record it wont work it just says set as background. What's your secret to making it a jpg image?

Grubish360 My COM Link | My Service Record File:Lieutenant-grade1.gif|25 14:42, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

All I do is open the service record, hit "printscreen" and use paintbrush to cut that image out. Here, I uploaded your current one for you:

--Grubish360 My COM Link | My Service Record File:Lieutenant-grade1.gif|25 05:50, 15 December 2007 (UTC)


It just started out as a couple pictures, but soon became an obsession. Glad it ended up in a shiny medal though. :) --Justin Time 22:02, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Sure thing. It's not often I notice someone with such devotion. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 00:22, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Justin Time's images[edit]

As the uploader, his name is on the file history. As I understood, we don't allow people to put their names on any mainspace things--articles, images, templates, whatever, if it's not a talk page, you don't credit yourself. If you want to change that, please email the Administration so we can discuss it. --NOTASTAFF GPT(talk)(eating) 22:59, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Its part of the legal nonsense we have to fulfill. Though he doesn't use a disclaimer template, as the photographer of the work, he does have to officially release it to the public, and from what I understand, the upload log doesn't count. And so, about 95% of our images are currently copyright violations because they neither aknowledge Bungie for creating the work nor the creators of any images. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 23:33, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
Good, lord, you're right! His pages should still have copyright templates on them, though. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 18:28, 20 December 2007 (UTC)


Sure, but I might change that soon to something better. Until then though, go ahead, it's not like I am shy or anything. WRAITH 19:35, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

OK. You can just reupload another image under the same name, and save yourself the hassle of having to change the images and stuff. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 19:36, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

The way I see it is, if we give you the top rank right away, you'll have nothing to strive for! :P -- Manticore (talk) 06:36, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Hah hah, very true. I'll work on that. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 06:49, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Deleting images[edit]

I dunno if you're just deleting all images or what... but if you are, could you make sure not to delete any that look like they've got at least a fair chance of being used in the future? Kthx. =D --NOTASTAFF GPT(talk)(eating) 23:44, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm just going through the unused image and removing the ones that arent being used...most of them are duplicates, user images, or just low quality. And sorry about messing up the admin skin, I keep changing that without meaning to. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 23:45, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, most are... but if you see any that look good, keep 'em around, will yeh? Categorize 'em too if you've got the time, I'm gonna start looking for good images to use sometime. I think. --NOTASTAFF GPT(talk)(eating) 23:53, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Fan Art Committee[edit]

Dear ED,

Was just bring to your attention the Fan Art Committee (FAC). I was speaking to users @ the IRC, and I was critiquing a particular article when I noticed the main image was fan art. I asked why they'd placed it there and the response was it was approved by the FAC.

Sir, with respect -- I think no fan material in any form should be permitted on Halopedia. Halopedia is a place for canonical material, not for fan material. I ask if the FAC may be disbanded and fan art be immediately removed.


RelentlessRecusant 'o the [[haloalpha:Halopedia Team TALKMESSAGE 04:32, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Man, I can say with all honesty that I wholeheartedly agree with you- I want 0 non-canon images on Halopedia. But as it is a committee, I often get outvoted on these issues. I would hate to destroy the group consensus-based nature of the wiki, though. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 05:22, 25 December 2007 (UTC)


Not to sound needy or anything, but I recently reached the 1,000 mainspace edit mark. That means I get a Legion medal in the UoH correct? -- Lieutenant AJFile:Lieutenant-grade4.gif|20 02:55, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Thats quite correct. You have earned it. I'll formally award you the medal in a few minutes. --EDFile:ArmyROTC.gif|15 04:16, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Did you?[edit]
