User talk:LordNova2


Welcome, LordNova2, 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 "LordNova2" 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!

Welcome! And about the pictures...[edit]

A (somewhat belated) Welcome to you! I've only just noted you and saw that you've been active here for a year already. Your edits covering the core products are very valuable. Especially the pics of the box sets are magnificient! Congratulations on that. I'm awarding you the Image Import Award. May I request, though, that you revisit the files and add information on the source as per the template provided, and add a fair use note to the licensing section.

You're also earned the ribbon for 1 year in service. Feel free to create a user page and move the ribbons there. Frabby 21:08, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
Image Import Award, 1st ribbonTime in Service (1 year)

I have tried to go back and add in the rest of the information to the pictures. Sorry about taking so long, been busy working on allot of other stuff. Unfortunately I have lost allot of my BattleTech collection in a tornado back in early 2011, so these pictures I have on Sarna are about all that is left of them, so if you or anyone else know of the artists to the box art let me know so I can add them in. Also is there some revamping going on in the main/menu areas of the site? I noticed that when you click on "Board Game" under the Official Systems it does not get into BattleTech AeroTech BattleSpace and what not. LordNova2 (talk) 21:22, 25 December 2013 (PST)

Hy sorry to hear of your lost, what are you lost box sets or sourcebooks, if you need new sourebooks and other stuff i can help you.--Doneve (talk) 21:30, 25 December 2013 (PST)
I think most of my sourcebooks rulebooks and TROs survived with moderate damage (mostly water damage). But the complete boxed sets: BT 2nd Edition, BT 3rd Edition, BT 4th Edition, CBT (WizKids), CityTech, AeroTech, BattleSpace, Succession Wars, Solaris VII, Reinforcements, Reinforcments 2, Clan Troops were lost as they blew open and scattered. The BattleDroids did survive with heavy water damage to the box, it would have been scatterd across the mile section too if it did not have the original shrink-wrap to hold it together. Never found my binder that held about 18-20 BattleTech posters ( there are several that I did not get around to cataloging on the site), there were two or three posters that were rolled up in a tube that I did find, and have to find again. I had a majority of the Tycho BattleMechs, they were all smashed up from a wall landing on them. There was also this other foot tall Timberwolf my brother picked up (not sure what it was from as I never found anything like it again), i'll have to see if I cannot find a picture of it I think it might have been from the Dark Ages stuff, but it had what looked to be gatling guns on its arms instead of the hexagonal PPC bays it was marked with the Wolf's Dragoons logo, the arms were moveable and the torso twisted, you could also open up the canopy and there was a little guy you could take out of the cockpit. I never found a trace of that big Timberwolf model. Allot of what survived is still packed away.
On the up-side all of my digital BattleTech materials came out just fine. Hard Drives are funny, you barley bump into one while in operation and they go kaput, but you can slam them around and bang them up while not in operation and they will spin up and initialize like nothing ever happened, 8 out of 10 HDDs hooked up to my PC still worked after the tornado, and the two that did not properly spin up and initialize were still able to be sent in and have the data recovered.

UPDATE: I found a picture of the Timberwolf, it is covered in dust in that picture but it is the best i could find of it so far.
