Welcome[edit]

Welcome, Dracoix, 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 "Dracoix" 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!

Leftenant General[edit]

High, and thanks for the start of some much-needed articles. Just to inform you, we try and write from an in-character perspective, as if both the Editors and the visitors are within the BT universe and are reading about a subject that has occurred. In that light, 'leftenant' is not mis-spelled, as that is how they spell their version of the English word 'lieutenant'. Just wanted to let you know why I modified the article. Curious: you've created articles on the early Clan history and now the AFFS. Do your interests lie in both of those areas, or is it just a broad interest that led you to create those articles? --Revanche (talk|contribs) 02:22, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm devoted to BattleTech lore in general and a long fan of the Sarna.net project. The pages added were just nails on the chalkboard by wondering why no one has added them. As the the leftenant issue, I was taking a layman's perspective on the naming. I'll try to write from an in-character perspective from now on, though I'm not much good at it. If wishing for more tedious-entry CBT pages just let me know. :) --Dracoix 02:42, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, we strive for excellence, of course. Wink.gif But, eventually someone will be by to bring any article that is out of standard up to standard, so its not like you have to do it. You're doing enough by providing good solid information, in the first place.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 02:54, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Refs[edit]

Providing references like those make me wanna call you my best friend. Anything that makes verification that easy is always welcome. Thanks! --Revanche (talk|contribs) 03:01, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
