Talk:History

Plagiarism[edit]

This is copied entirely from the first edition MechWarrior book (completely plagiarized). I've added the beginnings of the historical elements as separate pages (that will be expanded in later revisions), especially around the Succession Wars. Bdevoe 20:20, 31 August 2007 (CDT)

Most everything that you see from the old BattleTech MUSE seems to fall under that category. Some of it also appears to hail from 20-Year Update, but I don't have that book to be able to confirm. Scaletail 11:15, 2 September 2007 (CDT)
Confirmed: pp. 3 - 8. Checking now to see if there is anything of value added by real Editors. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 01:50, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Only copyedits were made. This article remains stolen from MechWarrior: The BattleTech Role Playing Game. I propose deletion as soon as possible.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 01:54, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Second Soviet Civil War[edit]

- I feel that this should be changed, the second soviet war... what?? This sounds like an alternate history time line, although I'm sure that recent books are different.— The preceding unsigned comment was provided by 70.118.214.224 (talkcontribs) 11 November 2007 .

The Second Soviet Civil War was a feature of the BTech storyline as late as MechWarrior, Second Edition. Given real-world events, the early BTech history no longer includes that. It simply states that Western nations banded together, but doesn't explain why. Scaletail 12:39, 11 November 2007 (CST)

Deletion[edit]

I support Rev's motion. Anyone opposed? ClanWolverine101 22:28, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Can this page be saved by adding the proper source references? I have both MechWarrior 1st ed and the 20 Year Update, but I am swamped at work this week and I have aready commited to the Taurian Concordat Bios. I dont want to start an already doomed project!Deeppockets 03:31, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Need more than that, needs to be rewritten from scratch to avoid copy-paste of those works. Even worse nowdays with PDFs when people can literally copy-paste from the existing works.Cyc 06:13, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Understood, I also recomend deletion then.Deeppockets 11:50, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
OK...is there anyone who has the time/resources to rewrite this article then? I might be able to, but it would probably take up to a month to actually make much progress because I'm typically pretty busy. Porty1119 1637 30 October 2010 EST

Wikipedia version[edit]

Just a heads up – the Wikipedia version is probably about to be deleted. It may be worth copying it to here and merging any useful content. —99.243.206.221 18:53, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Took care of it. Thanks for the heads-up. --Scaletail 17:05, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
