Canon friendly articles

Why do articles have to be canon friendly? It's a fan creation site for god sake! I wrote a pair of pages recently under my other user name, SPARTAN-309, these pages provided back stories on Daisy-023 and John-117 that fit in as part of my Halo/Star Wars crossover universe project. I was VERY careful to avoid referencing Star Wars elements, and yet for some reason I get a template tacked up saying that the article isn't canon friendly. It's fan fiction, if I want to portray the Master Chief as being Doctor Halsey's son I should be able to do it without being indirectly criticized for giving flexibility to certain concepts. What is going on?

Welcome, Daisy-023, to Halo Fanon: the wiki where you can write fan-made article(s) about the popular Halo series! Just follow these 3 basic rules and you will be guaranteed to be successful on this wiki!


Rule #1: Follow Canon! — What is Canon? By definition, it is the body of works considered genuine or official within a fictional universe. For example, Bungie and 343 Industries have officially stated that there were only twelve Halos. So, face the facts and try not to be stupid enough to create another Halo, otherwise it may be tagged and namespaced.

Rule #2: Mark Your Property! — Whenever you make an article, it is appropriate that you label your property with: {{Writer|Daisy-023}} at the top of the article. If at some point you have not finished that article, just insert {{Under Construction}} to notify other users that it is not complete.

Rule #3: Sign Your Name! — Whenever you place a comment on a talk page, please sign in your name, insert the —~~~~ at the bottom of your comment. When you press the "Save Page" button, Halo Fanon will automatically convert the —~~~~ to your username along with the time and date you posted. If you still have any problem on this method, just insert this alternative signature:
—{{Name|Daisy-023}} ~~~~~.

For more information on creating an article, visit the Halo Fanon Guide Manual.

Visit the rule page for the full list of rules and policies on Halo Fanon (link in the slider below). Note that other users will point out when you are breaking rules, so it is strongly recommended that you read them before you begin writing.


A correction regarding the Mark 33 Spitfire

Artemis-class Battlecruiser

G'Day. Just to inform you, but there are actually a large number of naval coilgun turrets that share the same model. The Spitfire moniker refers to the largest turrets mounted on the Pillar of Autumn and Autumn-class heavy cruisers; as you can see in the picture, the smaller ones on the Autumn are known as Sentry autocannons. Wasn't sure if you were already aware of this, but since you were working on some expansions, I thought I would let you know.


RE: UNSC Canterbury: help/advice?

G'day, I apologise for the late reply. I'm not interested in collaborating on the Canterbury because I have a lot of my own pages to work on. That said, I'm more than willing to offer some suggestions on what you can add to the article:
  • As I've mentioned before, doing something involving Anderson's old rebel faction might be good, but you could expand that to say that they captured the cruiser rather than destroyed it. Here, it has the opportunity to undergo a brief period where it is under Insurrectionist control, until the UNSC recaptures it back.
  • Depending on whenever you want to do this before or afterwards, you could have a battle where the ship is interrupted by a Covenant armada while they are fighting a rebel cell. They would work together to fight off the aliens, or you can have a three-way-fight between them.
  • For something Covenant related, perhaps assists in rescuing a prowler that has been intercepted by their warships. Then they need to fight to capture both the ship and the ONI personnel, although the Covenant end up destroying the ship in an effort to kill the Canterbury.

As for not deleting the article, even if you never fixed up your article, the site policy is to simply move it into namespace where most people can't find it. We try to avoid deleting articles here.

And sure, I'll have a look at your weapon articles and see what feedback I can give to you.
