Talk:List of BattleTech characters


Content here was copied verbatim with a fw minor spelling fixes from the Wikipedia article here [1] I could not find who the original author was, though I'd be glad to know and to give credit for the article here. -AidanPryde 17:04, 15 December 2006 (CST)

 :D "fw"? The irony is killing me. Um, yeah. What was the exact version of the article you used? If you don't know and aren't interested in hunting it down, give me a time (in GMT, please) that you retrieved it, and I'll find the exact version --Xoid 20:45, 15 December 2006 (CST)
This would actually be pretty sweet as filler for a lot of the characters that do not have their own articles, instead of being in one large article. Nicjansma 15:11, 17 December 2006 (CST)
Dang, I missed that typo, how ironic. The GMT of the article should be 3:34 december 16 2006. I don't know what y'all want here as far as an author or credit. I saw a discussion about crediting copied articles from sources like Wikipedia and didn't know or understand how credit was supposed to be given. Yet I wanted to state that I didn't intend to copy it with out giving credit. What should I do in this situation in the future?
Just paste {{wikipedia}} into the top line of the article you bring here. --Revanche (admin) 19:46, 17 December 2006 (CST)
The exact revision of the article should be linked to as well. Which is why I wanted the GMT, so I could hunt it down. I'll be fixing the template up, so don't worry too much about that. Xoid 21:18, 17 December 2006 (CST)
Nicjansma, do you mean splitting all of these people into their own articles? --AidanPryde 19:17, 17 December 2006 (CST)
Yeah, I think that would be nice. Does anyone see any problems with that? Nicjansma 01:40, 18 December 2006 (CST)
Considering the fact we have nothing at the moment, splitting these off would be a good idea. This article'll mainly be left to help newbies find their way around — a minimum of content should be left here; quick intro, etc, but for now? Split the lot off and develop intros after the bios have been written. --Xoid 02:14, 18 December 2006 (CST)
So, should we start deleting sections that already have their own page? Some of them were created before this article was imported, like Takashi Kurita Scaletail 15:04, 16 March 2007 (CDT)
