Clan Bloodnames - Substantial Improvement Award[edit]

I think the work you've done on the Clan Bloodnames page has significantly improved the usefulness of the page, compared to its original form. I think it would be useful to include a little bit of narrative in some of the sections, particularly those for the annihilated/abjured Clans, to indicate just how dead (or not) those Bloodnames are. For example, the Star Adders deliberately destroyed the Blood Spirit genetic repository in the Colleen system, so those legacies are as definitely gone as anything ever is in BattleTech, but a number of Moongoose Bloodname legacies were successfully obtained by the Cloud Cobras through Trials after the absorption. Anyway, I'd like to give you a substantial addition award because of the hard work you've put into improving the article so far - I think it's going to be a notable improvement when it's finished. I notice that you've also qualified for awards for both edits and time in service, so I'll set your awards board up and add those at the same time. Keep up the good work, it's definitely appreciated!

3145 Updates[edit]

Hi, thanks a lot to update some military command pages and so on, i love it, have a Substantial Addition Award, 2nd ribbon award from me, keep up your great work, cheers.--Doneve (talk) 15:10, 10 June 2016 (PDT)

Thank you very much! though I'm only about half way though the DCMS, I plan on continuing to finish all the major houses at least. Seems every command almost is stuck in 3085 and 3145 has really made a huge amount of changes that needs to be pushed to the wiki. Anyways thank you again, and please continue to proofread and edit my additions, I know I'm not a prefect editor yet.--Deadfire (talk) 15:16, 10 June 2016 (PDT)

6th Arkab Legion[edit]

Hey, I got a little confused by a funky sentence in the officer section of that page. If you could clarify the 3050-3067 section that'd be great. -BobTheZombie (talk) 18:08, 12 June 2016 (PDT)

I didn't write that but I can give it a look :), I've only done things on the pages related to FM3145.--Deadfire (talk) 18:09, 12 June 2016 (PDT)
Ah, my bad. Shows how little I've been thinking today haha -BobTheZombie (talk) 18:28, 12 June 2016 (PDT)
Heh, no issue I corrected it anyways, it was indeed very confusing :)--Deadfire (talk) 18:33, 12 June 2016 (PDT)

Trial of Retribution[edit]

Very, very happy to see the Trial of Retribution WWE finally getting some coverage. We really need to nail down those real-world events while people still remember what went down. (Myself, I only came back to BT in 2007 so I completely missed out on these, and have to rely on internet forums and the like to piece the information together.)

Finally got it done tonight, though not only is it in need of an editor, but for me it has spawned so many pages elsewise that need to be looked at and edited now too. The great work is never done lol --Deadfire (talk) 02:27, 4 January 2018 (EST)

Category Link Template[edit]

I'm a bit dumbfounded by the Template:Category link you created. What does it do? Were you perchance unawares of the [[:Category:CategoryName]] link format to link to a category without actually sorting the article into the category? Frabby (talk) 02:37, 26 February 2018 (EST)

Without knowing myself, but taking a guess, it might be something to do with the categories not working since the update a couple of weeks ago. Maybe Deadfire knows a workaround. Dmon (talk) 06:51, 26 February 2018 (EST)
Aye that was what I was attempting, using Wikipedia's current catagory link code. With the code I used the options with-in it to display the number of articles with-in an catagory which does not display. This leads me to think it's a database issue as either the data is incorrectly being stored or incorrectly being recalled. Without access to server logs or the code it's self at this time I really can only troubleshoot so much. As mediawiki checks an article after It's saved and stores the catagory tags to label the article. The first catagories added to articles are being saved and recalled just fine, but additional ones are not. This is such the case I ran into updating the bloodname articles with additional categories after they had been already created. Though I have seen this issue before, it moreover shows there is an issue with new article saves not having their catagory tags being updated. Along with the above supposed database issue, there may be an additional server cache issue. -Deadfire (talk) 08:17, 9 March 2018 (EST)
I think the original problem has been fixed. I'll revisit the Category Link template soon to verify, but I think it can be consigned to the dustbin now as the problem it was supposed to solve is gone. Frabby (talk) 15:22, 26 March 2018 (EDT)
