Welcome[edit]

Welcome, ENOVA, 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 "ENOVA" 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!

Manufacturing Worlds[edit]

Hey ENOVA, before you get too far down the rabbit hole with your Major Factory Worlds I just want to check that you know about this Category:Manufacturing Centers, potentially save you a lot of work.--Dmon (talk) 17:45, 12 June 2019 (EDT)

What he said. Also, there are a few problems with the article - it doesn't give a timeframe, it doesn't offer a definition of what constitutes a "major" factory world, and some information is... wonky. The worst problem is that the information is time-sensitive in the sense that factory worlds come and go and change hands a lot. Case in point, the Clan Wolf Occupation zone. It has moved across the map a lot. Gorton, Kingsley, and Thorpe Enterprises was actually an iconic Draconis Combine manufacturer, and the New Oslo plant was gutted when Clan Wolf took the planet. In any case, the "first 'Mech" (Imp, 2825) predates the Clan Wolf Occupation Zone by 225 years. This just makes no sense - or worse (from a Wiki standpoint), it is misleading.
Ultimately, my impression is that the manufacturing center list isn't a suitable topic for a BTW article. Frabby (talk) 08:47, 13 June 2019 (EDT)

Harjel[edit]

I see you updated this image containing game rules for Harjel: File:HarJel.jpg. Is that taken directly from a book? (I can't seem to find which it might be.) If it is, that is plagiarism and is not allowed on this site. --Cache (talk) 22:24, 24 June 2019 (EDT)

Having had a look at the file... Even if it is not plagiarised outright, I do think it should still be removed from the wiki because lore stuff can be rephrased, rules not so much, so we should be moving away from including rules on the wiki as plagiarism is virtually unavoidable.--Dmon (talk) 04:19, 25 June 2019 (EDT)
