From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Welcome to Halopedia!
Oh yeah! I'm a captain now! Suck it lesser peoples!!!!! (on another note, I'm gonna be editing less on Halopedia, as I recently got my Xbox back from Microsoft.)10:09, 1 April 2011 (EDT)10:09, 1 April 2011 (EDT)10:09, 1 April 2011 (EDT)~
500 Edit Milestone
Vegerot (talk) 16:44, 7 March 2011 (EST): It's weird, I just got the 500 edit Milestone yet it seems like I have done so much more!
- Talk page edits don't count. Also, it would be preferable if you stopped Multi editing the same page so many blasted times in a row.DatrDeletr 01:21, 8 March 2011 (EST)
- Vegerot (talk) 07:35, 8 March 2011 (EST): Did you see my reason? It's because, when I have a lot of reasons for doing something there is simply not enough room in the summary box. So then I have to edit multiple times so I can fit everything in! Just get one of the damn programmers to fix the summary box size!
- You don't have to write a reason in the summary box EVERY SINGLE TIME. Summary boxes are meant for short quick explanations, longer ones belong the talk page. It's about fitting the summary to the edit, not the edit to summary. That's saying that you rather feed your dog 20 tiny meals a day rather than just two small ones because you'd rather feed the dog as soon as it gets a tiny bit hungry rather than just let it adjust to a meal time. Really, it's far less productive.
- Also, put your sig at the end of your statements, not the front.Tuckerscreator(stalk) 10:05, 8 March 2011 (EST)
Vegerot (talk) 16:49, 8 March 2011 (EST)O.K. The thing is is that normally I do summarize what I do pretty well. The only problem is is when I make A LOT of edits, then there's a lot of things to explain. And on something like "the list of inconsistencies" then I have to give an explanation for each thing I do(understandably).Vegerot (talk) 16:49, 8 March 2011 (EST)
- We can take not having summaries. Most of the time, we can infer why it was changed by ourselves. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 16:59, 8 March 2011 (EST)
- Vegerot, just do what I do. If the explanation is too long for the edit summary box, put the explanation on the talk page and have a note on the edit summary that either tells whomever sees it to look on the talk page for the explanation or link to your explanation on the talk page directly. You don't have to try to fit it all in the edit summary box, and it will save you time. SmokeSound off! 01:31, 9 March 2011 (EST)
This is your first warning for making multiple edits in an article. For more information, please take this moment to read our rules and policies.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 22:17, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
- This is your second warning for making multiple edits in an article... I would really suggest using the preview feature for future contributions. - 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 20:21, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Is this where I Discuss it?
Is this the proper place to discuss my block or should I do this somewhere else?Thank you taking time to listen to my post! 02:30, June 9, 2010 (UTC)!
- Speak. Keep your tone straight and your attitude in line or I'll disable this too. SmokeSound off! 02:44, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
*alines tongue in mouth to be as straight as a snake* What did I do, I was just saying that people tend to get angry when people remove things without giving reasons. I believe it EVEN SAYS ON THE EDITING PAGE ITSELF that you should give a reason. And if your are the one who undoes it then you should be the one to make the page about it. I wan't trying to be offensive, I was trying to tell you that it bothers me and it bothers other people and to please not do that.Thank you taking time to listen to my post! 02:53, June 9, 2010 (UTC)!!!!!!
- If for some reason we don't give a reason, you contact the person who reverted the edit and you ask them why. The reason I undid your edit was because there were numerous grammatical errors, and the original wording conveyed the same meaning as your revision. There was no use in changing it. Also, spell check and proofreading your edit would help. SmokeSound off! 02:57, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
- O.K. But the way it was phrased like it was in-game. It should be phased as if we were describing that Flood Form. So I changed it from unit, to species, or Flood. SO it wouldn't sound like the game. If we are gonna talk about it in a game sense then shouldn't we go to insertnamehere/gameplay section?Thank you taking time to listen to my post! 03:11, June 9, 2010 (UTC)!!!
- In that instance, it was literally describing the Swarms as they were in-game, in Halo Wars, or rather describing tactics to deal with them; generally, tactics and all that are covered in one article. If you choose to do so, you can propose that tactics and the like (in-game behavior, etc.) are moved to a gameplay sub-page for each respective article. I unblocked you, by the way. Read the unblock message - and heed it. Do we have an understanding? SmokeSound off! 03:18, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
Another thing I should remind you: when you type your summary, do NOT spam it with exclamation marks and capital letters. It should be civilized and easy to read. Understand? --File:Brigadier Grade One.png|25 General5 7 talk contribs email 03:13, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
- She has a point. I interpreted that as you yelling at me. I don't take kindly to that, at all. SmokeSound off! 03:21, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
K.K.K. WAIT! WHAT?! (Red vs. Blue reference) General is a she?! And I understand your. But I have a suggestion that might work really well. So we should make a Flood/Gameplay section where we have ALL of the Flood forms and list tactics for them. And we do the same to all the other enemies. What I mean by that is we take all the stuff from the Zealot section that talks about gameplay and we move that to the Sangeheli/gameplay section. We take all the stuff from the Kig-Yar Sniper section that has to do with gameplay and we move it to the Kig-Yar/Gameplay section, etc.
O.K> But with the Spell Check, when I right click the red word in RIch Text editing, the only thing that comes up is the Rich Text options!Thank you taking time to listen to my post! 03:16, June 9, 2010 (UTC)!
- Disable Rich Text Editor. That thing fails epically. You can do so by heading to Special:Preferences, click editing tab and check "Enable/Disable Rich Text Editor".- Sketchist 03:25, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Please cease "exclamation spamming" on your summaries. They make you look like an idiot.-- Forerunner 14:59, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Regarding Your Block
We have warned you plenty of times to stop spamming the summary box. Take the time to calm down. If you come back and continue, you will be blocked longer. --File:Brigadier Grade One.png|25 General5 7 talk contribs email 15:32, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Please do not make assumptions.-- Forerunner 14:16, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
- I forgot where I read it (maybe b.net) but I remember something saying that it could make parts of the Installation if the Installation ran out of something to make that parts itself.Thank you taking time to listen to my post! 14:19, June 14, 2010 (UTC)!
- Ok. But remember that you need to source things. Also: don't make multiple edits! I had to revert your edits on that page because, although some changes were decent, you made others that were not so good - such as the assumption and the changes to the template field. -- Forerunner 14:29, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
I thought that the change to the template field was good! Because how could Mendicant be there?Thank you taking time to listen to my post! 14:30, June 14, 2010 (UTC)!
- It's suggested that the second Forerunner AI (seen in the terminals arguing with Guilty Spark) present on the Ark is Mendicant Bias. Observe:
- "And so here at the end of my life, I do once again betray a former master. The path ahead is fraught with peril. But I will do all I can to keep it stable - keep you safe. I'm not so foolish to think this will absolve me of my sins. One life hardly balances billions. But I would have my masters know that I have changed. And you shall be my example.

Edit war on HCE article
Please don't start an edit war. Proceed to the article's talk page or the user talk page and discuss about it. Please consider this before editing in the near future... >.> - 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 16:46, 5 January 2011 (EST)
Regarding the /Gameplay sub-pages you made for Taaku Xur-pattern Spirit and Ru'swum-pattern Phantom: I've said it before, and I'll say it again: there's no need to create a separate /gameplay page if the gameplay information is not cluttering the article in any way. Species articles such as Sangheili are so full of content they needed to be split; this is not the case with the T25 or T52 TC. I realize you're trying to make a distinction between in-universe and gameplay information, and I agree that it needs to be made clear, but any reader can tell the difference between a section about gameplay when it's titled as such. There's no need to create a separate page most people aren't probably going to find anyways, unless it's absolutely necessary for the sake of the article's length and readability. --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 18:40, 18 January 2011 (EST)
Another multiple edit warning
Learn to not make multiple edits. Gather everything you know and make one huge edit... everyone here in Halopedia is not in a hurry. As Tony said in your message board, take a chill pill when editing. >.> — subtank 12:12, 21 February 2011 (EST)
Renaming an article
In the future, make a proposal before carrying out the act. Start the proposal on the talk page first and let the community provide their opinion. It avoids problem. — subtank 20:02, 27 February 2011 (EST)
When you disagree with an edit...
Please use the talk page of the article and place your arguments/disagreements there. We do watch all changes that is going on in the wiki and will reply to discussions when we have the time to do so. Don't add speculation simply because it makes simple sense without any supporting sources.
Additionally, place don't add unnecessary exclamation marks in your signature simply to show that you care about canon. — subtank 07:50, 3 March 2011 (EST)
Please don't be mean in your edit summaries. Just because User:Butthead4 is a little new and experienced does not mean you can ask ground for his ban, or talk down to him when fixing his edits. I'm sure you would complain if we did those to you. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 16:58, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
- But the question is if he knows he is being a "Butt Head" or not. If he doesn't know what he's doing wrong, then I understand what you're saying. But if he is doing this because he wants to be a "Butt Head" then those are grounds for a ban. And again, he hasn't read the Manual of Style, so he knows what his expectations are. Which means that what he's doing is the latter. Or he hasn't read the Manual of style yet. I'm not sure which one is worse. Vegerot (talk) 17:01, 15 March 2011 (EDT)!
No proof for condemnation yet. Lots of users come in with no idea of the rules. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 18:47, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
- And they have noone to blame but themselves for not reading the MoS!Vegerot (talk) 19:49, 15 March 2011 (EDT)!!!!
I have to agree with Vegerot here, Butthead has been contrubuting only negatively to Halopedia. Though I would have sympathy if, well I can't politicaly correctly say, but, if you look at Butthead's spelling in both his edits and profile... I don't want to go deeper into this in risk of offending some people...--Felix-119 10:30, 1 April 2011 (EDT)
- Half the users that come in don't even know MoS exists. Really, this is normal. For a time, you didn't either. Just deal in the future with this in mind. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 10:11, 11 April 2011 (EDT)
It's not a bannable or punishable offense, but please stop putting exclamation marks after your signature. It's annoying, and immature. So don't do it. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 23:55, 30 April 2011 (EDT)
About your signature
Per Signature policy, please put a fixed height in the image, no more than 20px.— subtank 06:45, 18 September 2011 (EDT)
I forget, what exactly is the wiki code for hight and width of a picture?
- "Undo: I also think my dick "slightly resembles" Master Chief. But we can't add that because it doesn't meet Halopedia's notability standards. So no."

Please refrain from writing edit summaries with profanity in them. Thanks.--ハローファン (H1234-NET) 22:42, 27 September 2011 (EDT)

Re: "What? Are you referring to their devoutness to their religion? Because in things like Ghosts of Onyx, many separatists still believed in their religion."
Yes, I'm quite aware that some or many Sangheili still revere the Forerunner as Gods. But I was referring to their faith in San 'Shyuum's as prophets and their interpretation of the Covenant religion. I thought the Zealot ranks could have some relation to their devotion to the San 'Shyuum and Great Journey, hence why they could have disbanded such a rank. I guess I should have specified on that.--Brute Honour Guard File:Bruteface.png|20 ("Talk") 14:55, 23 October 2011 (EDT)
Citation Battle with Spartan331
I could not help but notice your argument with Spartan331. I have just watched the video in question and noticed images from the compilation on the page. Though you may argue that the actual image does not appear as it is merely a compilation but you cannot argue that there is no citation. If you or Spartan331 would like to put or like me to put a reference than one of us shall do so. I apologise if this argument has already been settled within yourselves. --Felix-119 06:55, 6 November 2011 (EST)
Please, if you can get me a specific citation (like maybe the second in the video that this happens) then I would be very grateful, thank you.
For God's sake, look at the talk page. I refuse to edit war over this any longer.--Lt. Commander 光环的家伙1234 Talk (Contribs) (Edits) 22:07, 6 November 2011 (EST)
- "But there are things that can be added. Like references, pictures, saying where specifically you can find them, tactics, etc."
- — You
- Well if you think that, then why don't you add that stuff you say that can be added?--Lt. Commander 光环的家伙1234 Talk (Contribs) (Edits) 22:10, 6 November 2011 (EST)
Maybe I will. But BECAUSE things CAN be added, it will stay.
- If nothing is added by you by this day next week, then it will be removed.--Lt. Commander 光环的家伙1234 Talk (Contribs) (Edits) 23:10, 6 November 2011 (EST)
What? No, that's not how it works. A stub is not a temporary template that's there only when someone says more will be added. A stub is a template that says more can be added, whether or not someone actually does. And also, that doesn't even make any sense, if I add enough to it to make it not a stub, then we would remove the stub template anyways. So, the stub template will remain there until it grows bigger. Vegerot goes RAWR! File:Icon-Vegito2.gif|21 Vegerot (talk) 23:32, 6 November 2011 (EST)
- Alright, I look forward to see what you add.--Lt. Commander 光环的家伙1234 Talk (Contribs) (Edits) 23:57, 6 November 2011 (EST)
Hope you can join us!--Spartacus Talk • Contribs 22:05, 23 October 2012 (EDT)
