User talk:Citizen Erased


Welcome, Citizen Erased, 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 "Citizen Erased" 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!

Bad Grammar Squad[edit]

Welcome! Glad to see more guys gearing up to fight bad spelling, grammar and funny ways of puttin' things! Have a good one RagTag 10:02, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, welcome aboard! --Revanche (talk|contribs) 17:27, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
I need one o these squads to follow me around in real life ;-), welcome to the fun house --Dmon 17:55, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
Fun house, eh? Seeing as how I'm watching an episode of "Oz" right now, I'm hoping it's not quite up to that level... Citizen Erased 23:40, 19 March 2010 (UTC)


In the article for MechCommander 2 you piped the Fireant link through to Flea. I'm curious - is there any information supporting the assumption that these are the same 'Mech? I doubt it, especially considering that the Flea is 20 tons whereas the Fireant is 30 tons. But since I haven't played that game, I simply don't know. Frabby 19:10, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Technical Readout: 3050 Upgrade's Flea entry talks about the Fire Ant under the "variants" section (and it gets a record sheet in RS3050U), and that's also listed in our Flea entry here. The in-game sprite for the Fire Ant also definitely looks like a Flea. It is a bit of a supposition on my part, but it seemed more logical to link to an extant 'Mech than create a stub for something that hasn't yet been clearly defined in canon. It could go either way, though. Citizen Erased 19:17, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
Good find! I don't have either of the sources you cited. It may be worth to expand this into a full article for the Fireant, or else, a referenced sub-section as a variant for the Flea (hint hint). :) Frabby 19:33, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
I'll start drafting a bigger entry for the Fire Ant as a heading for the Flea page, maybe? I'll try and find a good image of the Fire Ant's sprite, too.Citizen Erased 19:36, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

New Year Pages[edit]

Thanks for helping to re-vamp the Year Pages. Please read thru Policy:Year Pages to see why we don't use references nor keep entries that are not supported in the support article. (The ref/biblio issue is a bit more important right now, in my opinion, than double-checking each entry for support.)--Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:59, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

I'll double-check it, sure thing - I just wanted to start throwing the new templates in when I had a few minutes. Citizen Erased 02:39, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Moratorium violations[edit]

Hi there. I saw on the Sling and Hoplite pages that you've been citing Historical: Operation Klondike. That source is currently under moratorium because it hasn't come out in print yet. I know you've put a lot of hard work into those articles, so I'm hoping you could just drop some comment tags around the content that came from Historical Operation Klondike.

Any content you make based on Record Sheets: Operation Klondike is fine though. (Confusing, isn't it?)

Thanks!--Mbear 18:26, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Sorry that I got the moratoriums confused! I think I got the one for H:OK mixed up with its street date next week. How do the comment tags work, exactly?Citizen Erased 19:43, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
They're standard HTML comments. Edit the page, and put <!-- at the start of what you want to disappear, and --> at the end of the thing you want to disappear. Like this:

There's a sample there. If you edit this page you'll see it.--Mbear 12:31, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
Fantastic, I'll keep on the ball with those from here on. Citizen Erased 18:15, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
