User talk:Angry Poop


Welcome, Angry Poop, 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 "Angry Poop" 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 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!

4th Republican Guards[edit]

Hi Angry Poop, welcome. I like the work you did with 4th Republican Guards article. Since you are the author of the article, I wanted to point out something about the name. The Guards are actually known as the 4th Republicans (not the guards). Regiment name isn't applied to the name due to's naming conventions. -- Wrangler 00:58, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Welcome Mr Poop, I am rather impressed with your article and hope you can contribute more articles of that quality.

Wrangler they are listed as the Tikonov Republican Guards in plenty of other places on the wiki including the Brigade article and two other Regiment articles. --Dmon 10:34, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Its in error, Dmon. Look at 20 Year update for the Republicans and look at the Lyran Alliance Field Manual. You will only see (X) Republicans. That not their current name, new sources trump old sources. I'm not terribly fond of the current naming convention of the unit, but its canon. -- Wrangler 10:52, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
