Name change

I think we should change the name back to Half Life Wiki, or Lambda Wiki or anything similar. OverWiki, Combine Overwiki or similar are not a good idea because they refer to the Combine, something that did not enter the Half-Life universe until the second installment of the series. As you might already know, the Half-Life series will continue to expand even after Episode Three will be out. By that time, the Combine could cease to exist.

Anything related to the Greek letter lambda or the Lambda Logo is much more relevant, as this symbol is iconic for the whole series and will certainly continue to be in the future, much like Gordon's crowbar :)

Of course, there could be issues with Valve concerning the use of the symbol, as it's a registered trademark. If that's the case, we can come up with something else, but keeping the actual name is a very bad idea.

I agree. "Half-Life Wiki", or something similar, simple and to the point. --MattyDienhoff 15:31, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

We'd need a new symbol however. Coming Second 15:33, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Missing an Article

I was going to ask to put Tor, Baby Gargantua, and Bodyguard from Sven Co-Op articles in here, but since this wiki is for official Half-Life characters, I have something else in mind.

In the Half-Life Alpha, there was a creature used to demonstrate skeletal animation known as "Probe Droid" or "monster_probedroid". It's origins and basic trivia and facts are quite unknown, and I think there should be an article on it for this wiki.

To prove that this is not a hoax, here is a photo of this elusive Half-Life creature. http://combineoverwiki.net/images/thumb/e/e2/Probe_droid_front.jpg/250px-Probe_droid_front.jpg Gene Worm (talk) 16:33, March 23, 2015 (UTC)
