The Halo Bible project has gone live. An attempt to put together a comprehensive Halo "Bible" containing sources, double sources, external sourcing and removal of speculation, interpretation, fan fiction and unbalanced contradictions from Halo canon. Strict quality control of articles has been established, however it's not entirely perfect. It all depends on the dedication of the members of the future Canon Consistency Council.

Writers with a good grip of Halo canon can try their hands at writing an article about a certain element of the Halo universe. The article will then be filtered through 3 quality-maintaining councils before being accepted as an "official" article in the Halo Bible. Furthermore, the Game and Novel research groups will provide assistance with canon from multiple sources and Halo media.

The Article Writing Guidelines should provide details on how the system works. I need to make myself clear in advance, though. Speculation is not allowed to wind up in articles submitted to the Bible. It's all about canon and removing contradictions.

If you have any ideas on how to improve the quality filtering system, or how to further organize the research groups, please post on them on the forum.

Dedication is what matters.

Make it a wiki is my suggestion. Forums are difficult to navigate and search and improve the content of over time. You end up with information spread out over dozens of pages of topics and it's confusing.

GiantBomb is a great example of a clean and well organized Wiki that contains massive amounts of information.

Although some of you think a different approach is more appropriate, I have to say that I love the spirit of the project. This is something right up voc's alley.

This is something I'd absolutely love to do, but that being said, from the time I spend with my wife and son, my professional job and the work I do for the blog/forum we have here, it'd be damn near impossible for me to offer any consistent metric of performance that would be beneficial to such an effort. I definitely commend anything that attempts to take the Halo story and its categorization seriously, so good luck in that regard and like I said, Trooper, hit me up via PM if there are any questions about the sources or references used for me to arrive at specific conclusions within my articles on the AJ blog.

I joined. I'm going to try and do a few write-ups. It seems like its got a slow start, but with some love and care, it can become something very useful. I would recommend everyone writing at least 1 or 2 articles if you can spare the time and you have the knowledge to do so.
