Current Status[edit]

2016: I am not actively contributing to BattleTechWiki articles, but am always working to ensure the site is running smoothly (including monitoring for vandalism and other problems). I check my talk page periodically if you wish to leave a message. I still intend to get to my to-do's below, hopefully sooner rather than later!

History of[edit]

I opened in 1994 after finding BattleTech 3rd Edition at a local gaming store. Getting into web programming around the same time, this site was born. Eventually, I began searching far and wide for every BattleTech file and tidbit I could get my hands on, and compiled it into the site. The site has gone through several designs, with the core content growing every year. I've put in a lot of time and energy into the site, and feel it's a good resource for the BattleTech community. As of October 2006, I converted all of into a wiki with hopes that the site will morph to what the community needs.

Thanks to everyone who helps out!
