What's this stuff about the assault on the hellmouth? Always use the DMR. This is craZboy557, signing off. 11:53, 23 February 2013 (EST)

I have no idea. I've added the "citation needed" template, it may be the same situation as on Pike. I'll ask, and have a look around. --TentacleTornado 12:00, 23 February 2013 (EST)

You know, concept arts don't necessarily end up in the final product of the game. They are there to show the "true vision" of the game. I suggest stopping creating articles based on concept arts unless Bungie confirms that it appears in the actual game. Also, IGN is not Bungie, so to use something from IGN as a source is just wrong.

About that sourcing the name from IGN's "Concept Art Analysis", it appears "Spider Tank" is the working title for the vehicle, whether or not it will be in the game. IGN is not Bungie, this is true. But IGN appears to be the main source of Destiny information out there, looking at the amount of information Bungie has released. Though by that logic, all citations from sources outside Bungie should be removed, which isn't plausible. Anyway, this is the reason I added the "References" template, as much information in the article is either uncited or is cited from an unreliable source. Should I add the "Conjectural title" template, or perhaps transfer the "Tentative" template? --TentacleTornado 07:44, 24 February 2013 (EST)
The References template is used to indicate uncited information. For disputed info, we should be using FOF template. Halopedia has one if I'm not mistaken. Also, you misread the comment (though that might be my fault for not relaying the message clearly). Articles by these so-called "professional game journalists" is all fine and dandy but I think we should avoid using nicknames given by the press as it is wrong. I think we saw enough issues back during the whole "Storm Covenant"/"Covenant Storm" debacle. Hacame 10:51, 24 February 2013 (EST)
Ah. Yeah, I misread your comment, sorry about that. I hadn't thought about using the FOF template for this situation. :P
The confusion caused by "Storm" is a good point, though I'm not sure how to deal with it. The same points can be brought up for quite a few pages in the wiki. A change of names is needed perhaps? To add "Conjectural title" could be sufficient, as "Spider Tank" appears to be in wider use, until we are given a more definite information. Or should the page be deleted due to it's disputed nature? --TentacleTornado 16:40, 24 February 2013 (EST)
