That's a pretty good nod, actually. Works for me. Just remember, Jared had few "real" friends during training, so he probably wasn't aware of Gareth's admiration.


Just a suggestion, but you could rename the article Gareth-031, and that would be a much better way to title it. Other than that, I like the way it's looking.

Achilles, there is a preview button for a reason. Please stop flooding the changes with tiny edits to your article. If this is some way to boost your edit count, then believe me when I say it won't work. We had a user here before who did that, only to have his edit count nearly reset by an administrator.

Hah, I have to admit, I think of a Firefly-class transport every time I think of the Chancer V, but I'd rather find something original. As derivative as all writing is, once you have inspiration, you have to separate it and make it stand on its own, make the original stuff worth being referenced. So the Chancer's a bit like the Serenity in concept, but its story isn't going to have so much influence from the Western genre. A rock song is more what I'm looking for, and there's one musician I know who's considering creating something if he's got the ambition and time for it. Still, dang do I ever adore that show.



Image plagiarism and Civility Warning #1

TALK CONTRIBUTIONS
A few days ago you uploaded an image to this site of a number of UNSC ships. That image was created by me and uploaded to Deviantart, protected not only under that site's copyright protection but also an explicit and deliberate note by me against using the image without permission, both of which you flagrantly ignored. This is plagiarism. It is not only a bannable offense on this site, it is also against the law, and the image has been deleted. No further action will be taken this time, beyond this message, but consider this your first official warning. Naturally, if you choose to use someone's images without permission in future, consequences will be more severe.

Additionally, I suggest if you do for some reason decide to commit plagiarism in future, make sure the creator isn't an administrator on the site you upload it to. Kind regards.

You are quite new here, so I will do my best to clear up areas where you are confused.
  • It is not relevant that you didn't see my warnings; the fact is they were there. This is a defence no more than if I miss a speed limit sign and cry I didn't see it- still speeding and still plagiarism. Even if you didn't see my warnings, Halo Fanon has rules against uploading copyrighted material without proper attribution.
  • Yes, the image can be found on Google. Looking at the image and/or saving it are not against the law. What you did wrong was uploading it to this site, using the image without the permission of the copyright holder. This is both against the law and a breach of this site's rules on image copyright, attribution and plagiarism.
  • The 'massive warning' as you put it is a simple message left by me on your talk page. Talk page messages have always been and will always be the administrators' primary method of communication. Additionally, the message is an official warning, thus needed to be put on your talk page. If you don't like it, I suggest you refrain from breaking site policy in future. Regards.

Why hello there. I see you're slightly upset that we caught you breaching Halo Fanon policy. Now, let me set this straight. While the chunk of text you posted about the public domain is correct(ish), Matt's work is not in the public domain. It is protected by several complex copyright laws on Halo Fanon and Deviant Art. The fact you ignored and/or didn't check them does not mean they stop existing. The fact you found them on google does not immediately make them public domain. I found a sketchy copy of Avengers on google, it doesn't make that movie suddenly public domain.

So yeah, Matt is quite within his power to be upset, and you're breaching copyright law. Also, count you're lucky stars I didn't catch you, because I take an incredibly hard line to this, and you'd probably be in a lot more shit now. I hope this cleared up any remaining issues you may have. kthxbai.

I have edited your page, UNSC Tripoli, and removed material you copied and pasted from my Remembrance-class Frigate article. This is plagiarism, something I have already warned you about.

The ban will be significantly longer should you choose to disregard my warnings and break site policy a second time. Regards.

Okay, there are clearly many, many things which confuse you at the moment.
  • "...you cannot copyright words..."

False. Have you ever read a book? Ever referenced in an essay?

  • "...just trying to fit it with everyone elses..."

Not everyone steals my work.

As for the rest of the nonsense you've had the kindness to leave on my page:

  • You will accept the warning. You get no say.
  • One rule for admins and another for everyone else? Show me one instance where an admin has plagiarised and gotten away with it.
  • I suggest you read our own site rules, again, as you clearly haven't understood. We have rules explicitly prohibiting users from stealing work from other users. If we didn't, the site would be full of lazy writers stealing work off those who actually put effort into it. Assuming it was from Halopedia just doesn't wash, it's your responsibility to check that and ensure you aren't plagiarising.

If you wish to further contact me before your ban expires, please make use of the 'email user' function. Regards, and have a pleasant day.

UNSC Tripoli

Tx for the comment, i always try to make my article as close as possible to the there official counterpart, for now im trying to create something that will be related to the new Halo trilogy. As for your UNSC Tripoli, there is only 1 thing that sound unusual. If i was you i wouldn't made the Tripoli a frigate but rather an heavier Halcyon/Marathon cruiser because a frigate is rarely considered as a flagship. (I think only the canada have frigate to act like flagship) other that this everything look great. Keep up the good work! Cheer CF001 16:48, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Canon Correctness

I can't see anything else glaringly wrong with it. I'd suggest looking at a battlegroup page like mine here, and borrow the template and some of the basic features: entirely replacing all the information in them though. Makes for a more polished product overall.

Rainbow Dash Rainbow_Dash.png (Talk) (Contribs) 12:10, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

Not quite annoyed, simply preoccupied with University; in this case, I'm responding due to my nature to procrastinate and in an attempt to avoid typing out the last 950 words of a 3k word report due in one day, seven hours, and forty eight minutes. Anyway, avoiding my digression as I tend to do:

  1. Mini-MACs as anti-single ship? Well, yes, they will work, but its like using a hand grenade on gnats in the air. It'll kill them, but its wasteful. Plus a Mini-MAC (like my Mini-MAC I had on my Gulf-class Light Cruisers) have a hell of a lot of punch to them - check that last link if you want a mathematical explanation to amount of applied force. Unfortunately, ideas that are cool are not always the most logical here. We're sticklers for realism: something we pride ourselves as a community. Kinda a sense of superiority over the rabble on Fanfiction.net. We understand canon and write about Halo properly as Bungie would (no, we do not talk about 343i.) Anyway, I'm digressing again. I do that.
  2. Okay, organization! My strong suit...god, I hope so, given the two Management classes I am concurrently taking and ironically writing the paper I am procrastinating on about. But right: first thing first.
    1. A Battlegroup is firstly and primarily just that: a group of warships, roving and supposed to be ready for battle. They are not troop carriers, they are landing reactionary troops: ODSTs to establish a beachhead, and then landing conventional troops and armour from the Pelicans. They are not going to be accomplishing miracles, because they don't have the manpower: they are to hold the line or to simply pave the way for more forces to land behind them and bolster the effort. Now if there were 3-4 battlegroups in conjunction, doing a landing...then yes, that would be good for invasions.
    2. Frigates
      1. A Frigate usually carries a mechanized company of troops (78 - 110) - comprised of about 3 tanks, up to 12 LRVs, and a few other goodies (FFS, Mongeese are wastes of space. DON'T have many embarked for any reason. A waste of mass and combat ineffective at that). Don't forget the technicians as well! ODSTS? A platoon, probably about 16-32 - late-war/post-war, look at the smaller side of that number.
      2. Also has a Naval Air Detachment of ~6 Longswords and ~6-8 Pelicans.
    3. Destroyers
      1. About the same complement as a Frigate, less armored units aboard though. Would recommend calling them an Infantry Company with just LRVs.
      2. Lacks fighters, Naval Air Detachment will have probably ~8-10 Pelicans aboard.
    4. Cruisers
      1. Multiple Companies of Marines (1 Armored, 2 Mechanized), and a company of ODSTs (70-90). As special forces as culled as they were HCW, I reckon the numbers will be quite low.
      2. A Naval Air Squadron: 12-14 Longswords, 12-14 Pelicans.
    5. Battleship
      1. A complement the size of a cruiser, especially post-war. Armoured units, for sure.
      2. Two Naval Squadrons, each about 12-14 Longswords, 12-14 Pelicans.
    6. The crew of a vessel can repel boarders, as can explosively venting atmosphere to space to kill off invaders.

Hope that helps. -Rainbow Dash Rainbow_Dash.png (Talk) (Contribs) 14:35, May 11, 2013 (UTC)

Quick amendment, through conversation with Athena32, we've come to the conclusion that a HCW Frigate will only be able to host about ~4 Longswords in enlarged hangers aboard, due to their massive size.
With regards,
-Rainbow Dash Rainbow_Dash.png (Talk) (Contribs) 00:09, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

For various reasons, we shan't discuss my report or the state it is in (though its effectively done). But to reduce hanger space? Huh? For what, exactly, and how? Not too much you can use that space for, its dedicated to one thing and one thing only: single ships and its upkeep. You can't put weapon systems in a hanger even partially: have a Pelican crash on landing and burst into flames, explosives cooking off? Yeah...bad idea. Personally, keeping a ship standardized in regards to hangers is a smart move: if anything, rearrange internal layout (meaning cut down on some areas, sacrifice troop capacity and internally carried LRV/Armour aboard for moved areas). As for duo broadswords? They are not exactly fighters... the other idea me and Athena32 threw about yesterday were Sabre-class fighters. Look at their size compared to a Pelican. Far more ideal than a Longsword. -Rainbow Dash Rainbow_Dash.png (Talk) (Contribs) 12:08, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'll have a look over your images in a bit to check that, and yes, it's fine for you to create a title using 28th in it. As you can imagine, more popular page titles (UNSC, for example) are often wanted by multiple users, so we use suffixes to make each title unique.
