Sarna Community Bulletin:

Admins: The Admin Pages shortcuts (in the Sidebar) will be helpful in fighting the spambots. The filters are working, blocking (or only tagging) numerous edits. See the Abuse Log for triggered edits; they appear to be blocking a considerable number of new pages. I'm working on the prevention of new User pages. For a few days, I will be monitoring/notating words and URLs that are getting thru or being blocked, indicating new targets. Also note: I'm not certain the Merge & Delete function is blocking IPs, so please block the registered and individual IPs directly.
With the refresh of the awards images underway, a new Edit Count award--to commemorate Sarna's own Devlin Stone, Editor Doneve--has been released. Once you reach 91,296 edits, you may choose from one of two versions of the Doneve Device. The first version has his edit-weary bird icon, while the second has his callsign printed over the Edit Count ribbon in classic BattleTech font. Once Doneve returns, the required count will increase to continue to match his. Take the opportunity now to earn this award!
Kudos to all contributors who are currently datamining the HBS BattleTech game and creating articles. However, a word of caution and a reminder: Please respect copyright, and refrain from simply copying & pasting text from the game. Unless you need to cite text verbatim, "fair use" does not apply. As is always pointed out below the edit box, by submitting an edit you declare "that you wrote [it] yourself, or copied it from a public domain or similar free resource."
