Welcome[edit]

Welcome, 74.103.201.10, to BattleTechWiki!

We look forward to your contributions and want to help you get off to a good strong start. Hopefully you will soon join the army of BattleTech Editors! If you need help formatting the pages, visit the manual of style. For general questions go to the Help section or the FAQ. If you can't find your answer there, please ask an Admin.


Additional tips
Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the wiki:

  • For policies and guidelines, see The Five Pillars of BattleTechWiki and the BTW Policies. Another good place to check out is our market of Projects, to see how the smaller communities within BTW do things in their particular niche areas.
  • Each and every page (articles, policies, projects, images, etc.) has its very own discussion/talk page, found on the tab line at the top of the page. This is a great place to find out what the community is discussing along that subject and what previous issues have already been solved.
  • If you want to play around with your new wiki skills, the Sandbox is for you. Don't worry: you won't break anything. A great resource for printing out is the Wiki Cheat Sheet.
  • Also consider writing something about yourself on your UserPage (marked as "74.103.201.10" at the top of the page, though only do this if you're registered). You'll go from being a 'redshirt' to a 'blueshirt,' with the respect of a more permanent member.
    • This is really helpful for the admins as we will know you're a human rather than a spambot and we won't block and delete you accidentally.
  • If you're not registered, then please consider doing so. At the very least, you'll have a UserPage that you own, rather than sharing one with the community.
  • Introduce yourself at the new user log.
  • In your Preferences, under the edit tab, consider checking Add pages I create to my watchlist and Add pages I edit to my watchlist, so that you can see how your efforts have affected the community. Check back on following visits by clicking on my watchlist.
  • If you're bored and want to find something to do, try the Random button in the sidebar, or check out the List of Wanted Pages. Or even go to Special Pages to see what weird stuff is actually tracked by this wiki.
  • Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name (or IP address, if you are editing anonymously) and the date.


Again, welcome to Sarna's BattleTechWiki!

No personal attacks[edit]

Emblem-important.svg No Personal Attacks, Please
Welcome to BattleTechWiki. We invite everyone to contribute constructively to our encyclopedia. However, we remind you not to attack other editors. Please comment on the contributions and not the contributors. Take a look at the Help:Editing page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

If it's not okay for 96.255.72.183 to make the argument personal, then it's not okay for you either. Don't accuse other editors of things or put words into their mouth. Focus on the articles and their content. --Scaletail (talk) 06:41, 28 April 2013 (PDT)

I see no personal attack. — The preceding unsigned comment was provided by 74.103.201.10 (talkcontribs) on 29 April 2013.
You accused the user of defacing the site with their agenda. By accusing him or her or having an agenda, you have made an attack on the person rather than discussing the content of the article. I hope this clarifies the matter. --Scaletail (talk) 17:22, 29 April 2013 (PDT)
I did not accuse of anything I pointed out a fact and told him rather than getting into an edit war to take it to a discussion. I think your reading too much into my comment. BTW I have no plans to get into any edit wars over such a childish splitting of hairs. Also I have not edited a thing but, would like to see this site locked to stop these childish spats. — The preceding unsigned comment was provided by 74.103.201.10 (talkcontribs) on 29 April 2013.
I'm not here to argue with you. You have received a warning, nothing more. I'm not quite sure what you mean by "locked", but BTW policies are always up for review. Feel free to bring it up on a talk page. If there is no Policy that deals with the issue, you can start a conversation on the Ask an admin page. Thanks! --Scaletail (talk) 16:11, 30 April 2013 (PDT)
Now...back to the business of building a wiki.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:32, 30 April 2013 (PDT)

This is the discussion page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet, or who does not use it. We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify him/her. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
