Welcome[edit]

Welcome, Henryjones000, 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 "Henryjones000" 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!

Duplicate articles[edit]

Hi,

just wanted to say that I saw your flagging of this issue on the Admin page and my talk page. I'm travelling over the holidays and can't currently delve into the matter, but I'll look into this once I'm back to my desk.

The usual way would be for all articles save one being turned into redirects, with the lead article being named after the last/latest name of the unit in question. Frabby (talk) 06:45, 15 April 2017 (EDT)

Ok. I don't know how to do that. Can I leave that to you?Henryjones000 (talk) 06:59, 15 April 2017 (EDT)
Found another one. 1st St. Ives Cheveau Legers is the same as the St. Ives Cheveau Legers.
Hey Henryjones000... Instead of commenting on the talk page of every unit, create me a little list here and I will help out. St. Ives Cheveau Legers should be correct now. feel free to have a look.--Dmon (talk) 13:46, 15 April 2017 (EDT)
Ouch. Sorry but the new name is FIRST ST. IVES CHEVEAU-LÉGERS. You used the old name.Henryjones000 (talk) 13:59, 15 April 2017 (EDT)
Roman's Mounted Fusiliers -> 1st St. Ives Sentinels. Devon's Armored Infantry -> 2nd St. Ives Sentinels. Victoria Commonality Rangers -> Victoria Rangers. St. Ives Cheveau Legers -> FIRST ST. IVES CHEVEAU-LÉGERS. Kingston's Rangers -> 1st Victoria Rangers. Sung’s Rangers -> 2nd Victoria Rangers.
Old Name -> New Name. I get the feeling the Developers have it out for the CapCon. This doesn't happen to the others. Henryjones000 (talk) 13:59, 15 April 2017 (EDT)
Looking at the new names I would say that the powers that be (and the CCAF) are trying to make sense of their slightly wonky naming structure and create actual uniform brigades for their units. A good move if ever there was one.--Dmon (talk) 14:29, 15 April 2017 (EDT)
You are probably correct. If you have time, please tell me how to do that. Thank you for your help. No doubt I will add more to the list as I find them. Henryjones000 (talk) 14:33, 15 April 2017 (EDT)

St. Ives Sentinels[edit]

From User:Mbear's talk page

Hello. The Armored Infantry and Mounted Fusiliers are the 1st and 2nd St. Ives Sentinels. You listed them as dead and created new pages for the 1st and 2nd. What do you want me to do about them? Henryjones000 (talk) 12:44, 13 April 2017 (EDT)

If you want to delete the pages I made and incorporate the information back into the Armored Infantry/Mounted Fusiliers page, that's fine with me.--Mbear(talk) 09:21, 17 April 2017 (EDT)
