In Response To: Re: Decoding Installation Identifications (GLuebben)

: Good question I cannot account for and considered myself. Although, one
: might consider "delta" as "change". Perhaps this is an
: installation with which the Covenant are already familiar and a basis for
: their navigation?

: That's rather simple, actually. I thought more about it than I needed to, I
: believe. Perhaps the context of "Ark" in the glyphs has also
: come to mean "control station" or "control point". We
: believe the Covenant know of the Ark and its capacity to control the other
: installations, so its possible the glyph has developed other context and
: meanings.

: Those are far trickier and I've no thoughts of my own on them. *shrug*

: I couldn't agree more! :) The issue is walking through everything to get
: that done ;)

Hmm, maybe I've misunderstood a more basic issue...

Are these symbols that the Forerunner placed throughout the Halos or did the Covenant place them throughout the Halos? The Forerunner did, right? Or are we unsure of who put the symbols there?

Yeah, I agree: hunting down all those symbols and their locations in the games would be a pain!
