This procedure page provides a step-by-step description of how to complete a task or a detailed explanation of a method of style employed on BattleTechWiki. Consider discussing potential changes on the talk page first.


To quickly create a canon Factions article that matches the format in use with other canon Factions:

1. Open the new article.

2. Paste the following code into the edit field:


{{InfoBoxFactions
| crest = <Crest>
| factionname = <Faction Name>
| timeperiod = <Timeframe in which the faction existed>
| classification = <Faction type>
| systems = <Number of systems controlled by the faction>
| capital = <Capital World>
| rulertitle = <Official title of ruler>
| military = <Military branch>
| secretservice = <Secret Service/Intelligence Branch>
}}


==History==


==References==
<references />


[[Category:Factions]]

3. Delete the crest line from the code if you do not have a corresponding picture.

4. Replace the <data name> from the other lines with the correct data.

5. For each time period provided, add a different InfoBox and give the information for that time frame.

6. Elaborate on the faction in the History section, adding in wikilinks where appropriate. Add additional sections if necessary, and add in the source materials to the References section.

7. Click on the Show preview button and review your article for mistakes.

8. Press the Save page button.

9. Bask in the pride of your article, with our thanks.
