Display issues[edit]

Can someone please fix the tracklisting so that it doesn't overlap the side info? I'm not sure if this is a problem for anyone else, but it's overlapping. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:24, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Which browser are you using? It's not overlapping for me on IE7, Firefox 2, or Safari 3 for Windows. If we were to insert an explicit break, there would be an obnoxious amount of vertical whitespace. Try clearing your cache completely, too. — TKD::Talk 05:59, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

There is large amount of white space near the top, I tried fixing it-didn't work. Could Someone Fix It?Mallow's Basement (talk) 14:15, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. — TKD::Talk 14:49, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Behind a Pale Horse -- Meaning of name of song[edit]

I wondered what the meaning was for "Behind a Pale Horse". I thought, "Pale horse?" What is that? There's no horses in Halo.

Like the "John-117" Biblical reference concept, this also has biblical roots, I found out. Revelation 6:8 says: "And I looked, and beheld a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him." Bingo. "Behind a Pale Horse." Hell was "behind" this pale horse.

Notice that on the Halo Original Soundtrack Discussion, I also posted this item regarding "On a Pale Horse", in reference to the rider on the pale horse: Death. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:53, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Its actually called Behold A Pale Horse, not behind. (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 01:56, 28 December 2008 (UTC).

Never Forget[edit]

Do you think there should be a mention that Never Forget is a redone version of Unforgotten for the Halo 2 Volume 2 Soundtrack? -Chatboy 91 (talk) 07:50, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

If we can find a source. I'd say about 50-75% of the entire soundtrack is remixed versions of previous themes in Halo; but we need to attribute it. David Fuchs (talk) 12:44, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Do you think the Halopedia article will suffice? 91 (talk) 07:02, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Not really- since it's a wiki like ours, it's not a reliable source. I'll look for one when i get time. David Fuchs (talk) 12:41, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

GA nom?[edit]

It looks really good, what else do we need to have a GA? Judgesurreal777 (talk) 17:13, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

David's done a really good job on this one and I think it's definitely ready for GA status but I'm not going to promote it due to COI. Even though I haven't added to the article I would rather not promote articles within the scope of WP:HALO. James086Talk | Email 13:44, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
I went ahead and nominated it. James086Talk | Email 05:46, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

A coupla things[edit]

I don't understand what "froze" means in this context: O'Donnell "froze" the music so that a listener playing the soundtrack through would hear a musical representation of the game.

I'd like to see the personnel credits for the technical stuff. I added the producer, since he was in the infobox, but I'm sure there are others listed on the liner notes. -Freekee (talk) 15:29, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

I've added an explanatory text for the "froze" comment. As for the personnel credits, that actually is what's in the liner notes; they don't note the mixers, et al. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 19:11, 27 April 2008 (UTC)
