User talk:Redstonize


Welcome, Redstonize, 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 "Redstonize" 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!

You Need References[edit]

Hello Redstonizer, welcome to Your article Time swapping theory‎ has no references, doesn't seem to have anything to do with Battletech. Unless you can come up with valid and canon references existing battletech products to backup your article. Its likely it will be removed -- Wrangler (talk) 19:25, 5 August 2013 (PDT)

No fan fiction please![edit]

Emblem-important.svg Your Test Worked and Has Been Removed
Welcome to BattleTechWiki. We invite everyone to contribute constructively to our encyclopedia. Some of your recent edits have been considered unhelpful or nonconstructive and have been reverted or removed, as they could be considered to be vandalism. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make and take a look at the Getting Started page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

What Wrangler said. BTW does not publish fan fiction or made-up in-universe content (i.e. information not originating in an official BattleTech product). Your edits were in violation of our Policy:Fanon and had to be removed. May I suggest you use the BattleTech Fanon Wiki for this purpose instead. Frabby (talk) 02:15, 6 August 2013 (PDT)
