After some time off, I’ve returned to editing the Sarna.net wiki and have plenty of ideas for improving the wiki. As usual, there’s the constant need for new articles and article updates, as well as the ever-growing pile of articles that need proofreading. I want to pick up where I left off with the unofficial “project video games”.
‘Mech combat on the planet Cermak
With this project we are aiming to vastly improve our coverage of the various video games in the BattleTech universe. Though these games are not expressly canon, they still are an important part of the ongoing universe and deserve better coverage than they have gotten.
So far, we have quantified and organized all the MechCommander and MechCommander 2 equipment stats, but the ’Mech and vehicle pages for the original MechCommander need work. With more help for those pages and for all the MechWarrior games’ related pages, these video games could be much better covered.
I want to thank everyone that took the Sarna 2014 Survey. We had 941 responses, which has given us a ton of great feedback! Besides the survey questions, there were several hundred written suggestions, ideas, bugs and thoughts on how to improve the site.
I’ve spent the last day pouring over the results, and have tried to boil everyone’s responses down to some key takeaways. Over the new few months I’ll be addressing your biggest concerns and best suggestions.
You can check out the survey results here.
Time is almost up to take the official Sarna.net survey! The last day to take it will be October 15, 2014. This survey is an opportunity for you to voice your opinion of Sarna.net and to help us improve the site. If you haven’t taken it yet, it only takes about five minutes of your time and will help both us and the BattleTech community. Any and all feedback through this survey would be greatly appreciated. We will post the results of the survey when they are compiled and ready.
Thank you to everyone who has participated!
Please take a moment to help us improve Sarna.net by taking a survey:
The survey asks 20 questions and should only take 5 minutes of your time. We will use it to help us better understand how we can improve the site.
All feedback is anonymous (unless you want to leave your name or email).
The poll will be open for two months. After this time, we will analyze and review the feedback so we can plan how to improve the site for 2015.
Thanks to everyone who participates!

If you’ve visited the wiki in the last year and came across a great article, or had a helpful interaction with a member of the wiki community, I would encourage you to nominate them for the Founder’s Awards. Last year’s awards winners can be found here.
