Hey Sev. I just took notice that Deryck-D096 and Daiki-D217 are apart of the Delta Company. Both have VV era icons, but not Delta Company. I'm a little confused. Is Delta Company meant to be a stand alone article? Or in its own separate universe? I just want to make sure that were all on the same page, so if you can get with coolbuddy and other authors of Delta Company and think something through. I also noticed that you added the info on the Vadumverse timeline and I don't want other authors complaining. Just a heads up.
Thank you Sev for the help. Photos have been my biggest issue so far and using the template you sent me has been...confusing. If you could perhaps walk me through it that would be fantastic. /Users/benfrondorf/Desktop/LaughingLion4f7c7f5aa7ea8.jpg
This is the file I'm currently trying to place into my article. If you by any chance walk me through it that would (again) be great.

Heyo, King here. I noticed that you attempted to link to a category in a talk message before. If you put a colon before the link (like this: [[:Category:Administrators|Blah]]) you can get a category link (like this: Blah). It also works for pictures.
So what were you planning for your character? I can give pointers on any information I haven't written down yet. Events, equipment, etc.
Well, primarily they are a ground force. A lot less space missions than Spartans.
Though boarding space stations is still a thing.
Before the Great War they were primarily used to fight the Insurrection. And even after it they were more used for anti-insurgency. Though desperation would drive their towards being used against hte Covenant as the Outer Colonies began to fall.
They are team orientated but are perfectly able to work solo.
A lot of them are from Army Airborne.
As for publicity, i'm not sure.They would be hugely overshadowed by the Spartans. But i'm not sure how much of a secret they would be. Definitely not displayed in the wide open though. More like a loosely kept secret. Like the Spartans, but they would get confused for them.
They are Army, yes. But that also means Army Special Forces and Army Airborne. Though, MAYBE, they could recruit some independents. But that's iffy and I haven't decided. Though Army pilot isn't out of the question. But Goliaths are expected to fight
Goliaths are also noted to be way more destructive and violent. I mean when they have the strength to tear a man's arm off, why wouldn't that happen a few times? "Loud and Proud" y'know? But can be just as stealthy. Just more predisposed towards shock assault.
Also, how much do the volunteers known about the program? You've said they aren't aware about what it does in the article. They knew they were be supersoldiers. But they didn't know they would fuck around with their brains. Or HOW much they would be modified. By the end of their operational life, they would be supersoldiers attached to IV stands in power armor.
"More GOLIATHs would die from catastrophic organ failure, brain hemorrhaging, or neurological burnout than in actual combat as after-effects of AMBROSIA."
Before, I was thinking that the armour would be filled to the brim with medical supplies such as BioFoam to keep them standing. Oh, the armor serving as life support? Yeah that was the plan.
I could make him stranded there, go missing for a bit before meeting up with rebels who have the supplies and expertise, using him as their personal enforcer
Also their armor, the ACHILLES Powered Shock Assault Armor, is bigger, bulkier, but more tanky than MJOLNIR.
This is what I have for ACHILLES. Besides it basically being Jorge-052s armor.
ACHILLES. UNSC powered armor project. Rival design to the MJOLNIR armor, accepted by the Army. Heavier construction and less advanced materials. Fusion reactor had to be housed in a backpack-like structure. Guns linked to a Mark IV/LBE-A Field Case via an ammo feed flex chute.
Its different. Orientated towards adults. No education thing since they aren't raising kids. Also more brutal and higher fatalities since their recruits aren't 1 in a 1000.
In comparison to the Spartans, how do they compare? Well, usually they are bigger and stronger. But not faster or as balanced. Also tend to be more violent and unstable, due to their issues. Overall they have a lot less humanity, due to the tinkering done to them.
Their skeletons aren't as durable, are they? No, they won't survive a fall from orbit. They have implants and harder bones, but not as strong as Spartans.
Insurrectionists tend to get left in pieces. They have a lot of issues with excessive force, violence, and firepower. Usually are less subtle. Discretion is maintained by leaving no survivors.
Do they have any other equipment they're fielded with? I planned for them to wield these SAW-like machine guns. Belt fed. Grenade launchers. Automatic grenade launchers as well. Nasty bayonets and wicked knives for days. Basically their personal weapons are out squad support weapons. I was also thinking that during the Covenant War they got equipped with these big titanium-A boarding shields. Since they either never get Energy Shields, or not still much later. Depending on canon.
Like RIOT shields? I was going to play with that idea actually. But their armor compensates by being way heavier.
How big are the squads? Not sure on standard military sizes, but five is normal. Bigger for larger scale missions. Smaller for more discreet operations. Though, being discreet isn't always easy for them. So are the squads set then, or are they pulled together depending on the mission parameters? But they aren't as much family units as Spartans.
Also, a good rule of thumb for describing them is "Inelegant"
Jorge's armor would be best. Grenadier. With the shoulder thingy. What ever is bulkiest.
Also, prime example of their usage. A rebel held city with Innies dug in, which would be too costly to attack head on, send the GOLIATHs. In close quarters combat they are slaughter. Urban combat is their forte. But they'll do anything Anti-Insurgent.

Hey Sev, do you think Delta Company and all its associated pages need an era icon? I have no idea on what the icon should be, other than that the obvious Greek delta symbol, but I'll try and think of some
Also, I think we should have a canon expansion page for Beta-5 too, since the Halopedia page is basically a stub. We can add some pretty exciting stuff..
What do you think?
The DELTA Initiative

So, it's been quite some time since we talked about this; we planned of deleting DELTA Initiative and turning it into a category page for all thing related to Delta Company, but nothing so far really happened. I wanted to ask you just in case you had a different method in mind, before doing it right away. Cheers!
RE: Delta Team Names
My apologies Sev, but at the time of Hadron and Ion's creation Delta Company was still new. Because of this, specifications for team names didn't exist at the time. Although I prefer for their names to stay how they are, I can change them once I determine a pair of replacement names for them that better fit.

Hey, I'm not sure how to communicate through messages, the talk page, and what is an effective method to communicate with others on here. You have any pointers?
Feedback for Colt Blaster
Hey Sev, its Distant again. So, I've been going through my Colt Blaster article, updating often in my free time as of late. Do you mind giving some feedback when you're free? I appreciate the help you've given so far, mind giving me some pointers or an opinion on how its turned out since I've overhauled the piece?
Distant Tide (talk) 05:01, May 9, 2017 (UTC)
Hey Sev, this is Distant again. I'm not sure if you are doing recruiting for Delta Iniative or if you just pasted a hypothetical recruitment notice on the category page.
Anyway, if you are recruiting, could I suggest a Spartan Delta fireteam? I wasn't sure where to put it previously - given I don't want to intrude on the Gammas, I can't tell how many individuals have taken up unit numbers and I'd like to do a young team of Spartans around the post-War era. Delta seems still a mostly unexplored frontier in terms of characters and story.
My team, previously Fireteam Estoc, now changing the name to Boson if its avaliable (partially for Higgs Boson jokes - God Particle). I have 3 ideal Spartan concepts, no names yet, and possibly another two - I don't know your guys' Delta Company structuring.
What is your guys' requirements, recommendations, and I'd like to ask if AWOL is a story option. I know its a popular fanon story point and maybe a tad bit overused, but I like the concept and I have a tendency to write free-spirit kind of characters.
Good job to everyone working on Delta Company, it really is awe-inspiring since I'm still new.
Hello, i was wondering if it would be wise to create a ship thats comparable in size and strength to the CSO Class Covenant Supercarrier seen in Halo Reach. I plan for my ship to be fully built by 2602. RBC RT16 Alycia (talk) 02:52, May 29, 2017 (UTC)
Well, they're a bit later than anticipated, but here they are. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait on the third one you requested, as there are never more than 50 people playing Rumble Pit on 360 anymore, and I'm not waiting for it to set up games just to maybe get a screenshot. So to that end, the third screenshot will require the aid of a unwilling helper. Hopefully I'll be able to get it soon, though.

Happy birthday, Sev! Hope you enjoy the day!
Hey, Sev. Though some images could be better, I do like the current stance they are in. Saves not only myself, but others from going through the hassle to set something up. Though I truly due appreciate the offer, but ultimately, no thank you.

Hey, Sev. I've noticed that a majority of my articles containing a link to the Battle of New Century have been removed. Why is that? I've also noticed this with some others. Why?

Thanks for you comment regarding my page titled 'Erik-B307'. I am currently writing a fan-fiction novel based around fireteam triton; a team of 3 spartan 3's. I was unaware of the canon conflict regarding operation:torpedo, however i wish to make my work as canon-accurate as possible and therefore i appreciate your attention to detail as there are gaps in my canon knowledge.
Wishing the best
