  • 25 May 2016: 2015 Founder's Awards (Nicjansma)
Please congratulate the winners of the 2015 Founders Awards, giving recognition to all of the amazing community members and their contributions over the last year.
  • 17 February 2016: MediaWiki upgraded (Nicjansma)
We've upgraded Sarna.net from MediaWiki 1.24 to 1.26. Please let me know of any issues.
  • 13 February 2016: MWO Hero 'Mechs declared canonical (Frabby)
Line Developer Randall N. Bills expressly confirmed that the fluff for the Hero 'Mechs in MechWarrior Online is considered canonical for BattleTech. The storyline for the upcoming BattleTech (Video Game) is also intended to be canonical. This is notable as computer games are otherwise expressly excluded from the definition of canon, being considered apocryphal instead.
  • 01 January 2016: A Happy New Year! (Frabby)
2015 was another great year to be a BattleTech fan. The Unseen issue is finally going away through the retroactive introduction of new designs that actually look recognizably like the earlier, unseen images. New print novels have been announced (and a small print run of one was sold at GenCon).
On the Sarna.net BattleTechWiki side of things, we've seen a continuous drive to improve the existing database, and another 549 new articles added this past year. The 20,000th article will probably be written this year, which is very exciting.
The signs are good. Here's to a great 2016!
