User talk:JubalHarshaw

Welcome, JubalHarshaw, to BattleTechWiki!

Thank you for your contributions; you seem to be off to a good 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. If you have any more questions after that, feel free to ask me directly on my user talk page.

Additional tips[edit]

Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the wiki:

  • For policies and guidelines, see The Five Pillars of BattleTechWiki.
  • 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.
  • Consider registering at the site (if you haven't already). That way, you'll get name recognition and respect for the effort you put in here.
  • Also considering writing something about yourself on your UserPage (marked as JubalHarshaw at the top of the page). You'll go from being a 'redshirt' to a 'blueshirt,' with the respect of a more permanent member.
  • Introduce yourself at the new user log.
  • In your Preferences, under the edit tab, check 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 each visit 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 and the date.

Additional Welcome[edit]

Boilerplate welcome aside, let me say I really look forward to your involvement here at BTW. Experience with wikis is critical to helping us get this thing up and respectable. Again, welcome! --Revanche (talk|contribs) 08:58, 18 August 2008 (CDT)

Hi, thanks for the warm welcome. I look forward to contributing. Let me know if there's anything I can do (or if I screw up somehow :) ) ... regards .... JubalHarshaw 09:06, 18 August 2008 (CDT)
Thanks so much for your help cleaning up the articles on the various Clans, and welcome aboard! If you'd like, feel free to introduce yourself on the new user log. I hope you stay and continue to help. If you want to continue to help us out with articles on Clans and other factions, you may wish to join WikiProject Factions. --Scaletail 12:28, 18 August 2008 (CDT)


I do have something I could use your experience on: I want to create system of article ranking, similar to what I saw you were referencing on Battlestar Wiki, but more along the lines of Wikipedia's Assessment program. This would actually be a major undertaking, but I feel developing something like this would spur on both additional articles and improvement of standards and articles already present. The end goal, I envision, is a Featured Article developed for the main page (maybe on a monthly basis). Would you possibly be interested in starting something like that here? I know, a lot to throw on the new guy...--Revanche (talk|contribs) 16:49, 18 August 2008 (CDT)

Regarding a project for ranking articles ... something like this and this? I like the idea of finding quality articles first that could then be voted on for featured article status. I'll start giving this some thought for how we could implement something like it here, it's own project, I would assume. JubalHarshaw 08:48, 20 August 2008 (CDT)
Sure; I like the corner icon concept. A secondary goal (first leading towards main page featured articles) is to spur development in all articles, especially the stub-class. That's why I'm interested in expanding it to lower levels of the scale, hoping that Editors will want to jump-start articles thru the process. Maybe Stub-Start-Good-Quality-Featured. Maybe there is no need for the Good level, but the scale should allow for clear delineations between the quality of the article. (Side note: I wonder if there is a way to institute BattleTech terminology in the place of the non-FA levels.) --Revanche (talk|contribs) 09:26, 20 August 2008 (CDT)
Like "Green-Regular-Veteran-Elite"? --Scaletail 19:33, 20 August 2008 (CDT)
Sure. Elite could be Featured-Article ready. "Untrained" for stubs, maybe. Jubal, would you prefer to put something together first or would you like us to open this to the wider audience, at a different place? --Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:14, 24 August 2008 (CDT)
By all means, open it up for all, work has picked up a bit for me lately so I'm not sure how active I'm going to be able to be for a few weeks. JubalHarshaw 08:20, 25 August 2008 (CDT)
But you don't mind being the project lead? I guess the question is: would you prefer to make this your own project, where you present the project direction or would you just like to implement the decision of consensus (upon your return)? --Revanche (talk|contribs) 09:26, 25 August 2008 (CDT)
Probably best that we go with the second option, I'll happily chime in to help form consensus and help implement whatever is decided. JubalHarshaw 14:55, 26 August 2008 (CDT)
Roger that. I'm going to delay a bit, as the Chatterweb is a bit full of items that I think need to be worked out in a shorter time period. Once it clears out for a bit, I'll reintroduce it in its own talkpage.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 13:46, 27 August 2008 (CDT)
