Welcome[edit]

Welcome, The Colorful Project, 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 "The Colorful Project" 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!

Hellbringer image[edit]

Hey - Regarding your pic of the Hellbringer/Loki from Mechwarrior4 : Is it possible this is the wrong pic? It kinda looks more like a Templar to me... Just a thought. ClanWolverine101

  • Hm... yea, I guess it's possible - I searched all the mechs in MW4 and tried to find the one most suitable. The Templar was in MW4? I don't recall it... but hell - it really looks more like Templar than Hellbringer O_O odd.... The Colorful Project 16:38, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
    • Its possible the Templar wasn't released yet. Its just the pic really didn't scream Loki to me. Most of the video game clips used OmniMech Primary configurations for the visuals, regardless of what weapons they were actually carrying. Not for nothing, but that REALLY doesn't look like a Loki Primary to me. ClanWolverine101

Images[edit]

Hy, please can you put your uploaded images in the Gallery category, on the Colour BattleMech page, thanks.--Doneve 17:50, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

  • What do you mean by the gallery category? AFAIK there's no such category. Can you give the link? The Colorful Project 18:01, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
Look on the Wiki side bar Background: it is over the Planets category, you see the Galleries section.--Doneve 18:04, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
Doneve, this is a good example of when to provide links to the person you're talking with. A lot of times, requested action depends on how easy you make it for the person. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 21:36, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
Yea... it'd be helpful :) Ok, updated. The Colorful Project 16:48, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Moratorium[edit]

  • Hy, please keep in mind, you make a moratorium violation when you add pictures from A Time of War, please stopp...and contribute when the moratorium is done, thanks.--Doneve 12:08, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
    • Oh... I haven't even checked if it's under Moratorium or not >_< Bleah, sorry... Won't commit anymore stuff of it. The Colorful Project 12:17, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
