Welcome to the site!

I would recommend reading first the Manual of Style for the wikia - a lot of the pages you first make and the coding you first use will first be trial and error; but you'll get a hang of it fairly quickly.

  • For a much more detailed guide to Wikia coding and the like, you might want to just skim Wikipedia's MOS - its also helpful if you need to know how to do something.

As for the page, I would recommend you have a read of the Canon Policy, along with the Rules. I can't stress the importance of reading though these and understanding them. Also, if you don't quite know everything about the Halo universe, its okay! Just pop by Halopedia for specific canon details.

As for posting your work, just make a page by clicking this: its that easy. All you have to do is add a {{Writer|{{USERNAME}}}} template to the top of it, and start writing. Users might offer critiques and suggestions regarding the page on the talk page - listen to them!

This is just the mere basics of the site - its quite amazing what a user can do after they learn the ropes, per say. Its been a pleasure telling you this - not too many people ask for tips and advice; especially when it is hard won.

Good luck, and I hope you enjoy your stay. =)
