User talk:Psycho Historian


Welcome, Psycho Historian, 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 "Psycho Historian" 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!

Catherine Humphreys & 5th Fusiliers of Oriente[edit]

Hi and welcome to BattleTechWiki. Thanks for helping to improve a couple of articles. I wanted to let you know that I reverted a portion of the edit you made to Catherine Humphreys because it violates BTW's policy on copyrights. In short, the text was taken directly from the source it references, which is considered plagiarism. Because you do not own the text, you are not allowed to reproduce it. If it were to remain on BTW, it would open the website to lawsuits seeking damages.

The addition you made to 5th Fusiliers of Oriente is also plagiarized. I see that you changed a couple of words, but it is not enough. You must rewrite the text so that it is wholly in your words. So that the addition is not lost, I have moved it to the article's talk page. Please make the necessary changes when you are able. --Scaletail 16:46, 12 April 2012 (PDT)
