User talk:Skylarr


Welcome, Skylarr, 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 "Skylarr" 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!

Hi, welcome to BTW and thanks for registering. The CargoMech article you created is a great start, but it needs some referencing. In order for material to be on BTW, it must have citations so that other editors can verify the information. An un-sourced article may be deleted if no editors can add citations. You may be interested in Help:CreateIndMechArticle, which provides the framework to build an article on an IndustrialMech around. Welcome aboard and happy editing! --Scaletail 18:00, 23 June 2012 (PDT)

Copied text[edit]

I wanted to alert you that I removed text you have added to Algedi deleted the entire Azami article. I thank you for adding to BTW, and an article on the Azami is definitely needed, however you must add text you have written. In other words, you cannot use the words written by somebody else verbatim, including the text written in official BattleTech books. This is a violation of the BattleTechWiki copyright policy and is, in fact, a violation of copyright law. Allowing the plagiarized text to remain on this website could expose its owner to legal action, something nobody here wants to see.

I'm sorry to have to do this but I hope you understand why I have taken such extreme action so quickly. I encourage you to write an article on the Azami, but in your own words. If you have any questions, you may ask them here or on my talk page. --Scaletail 17:07, 16 July 2012 (PDT)

Sign talk posts[edit]

As a courtesy for other editors, it is a BattleTechWiki guideline to sign your talk page and user talk page posts. To do so simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name (or IP address, if you are editing anonymously) and the date will be automatically added along with a timestamp. Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). For further info see the talk page guidelines. Thank you. --Scaletail (talk) 18:25, 9 January 2014 (PST)


Hi, are you the same person as User Skylarr on the MWO forums? I've registered there to comment on a few threads in the BattleTech subforum but found that I cannot post until I've done some basic stuff in MWO which I can't play on my computer... Frabby (talk) 12:44, 31 January 2014 (PST)
