Procedures.gif BattleTechWiki Procedure
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 ProtoMech article that matches the format in use with other canon ProtoMechs:

1. Open the new article.

2. Paste the following code into the edit field:


{{InfoBoxProtoMech
|image=
|name=
|manufacturer=
|Tech Base=
|Introduced=
|model=
|class=
|mass=
|chassis=
|armor=
|engine=
|speed=
|jumpjets=
|armament=
|BV (1.0)=
|BV (2.0)=
}}



==Description==


==Weapons and Equipment==


==Variants==


==References==
<references />


==Bibliography==


[[Category:ProtoMechs|{{PAGENAME}}]]

3. If a field is unknown, leave it blank.

4. If a ProtoMech does not have jumpjets, completely remove the appropriate line of code (ex: |jumpjets=).

5. For the image field, just the name of the image is sufficient. e.g., Example.jpg, Example.png, etc.

6. Fill in the four sections (Description, Weapons and Equipment, Variants, References) to the best of your capability.

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

8. Write a brief memo in the Summary field.

9. Press the Save page button.

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