(Redirected from Meta-source)

For the purpose of this BattleTechWiki, the Meta-Source moniker is applied to any published work (either in digital form or in print) that is not itself a canonical publication, typically because it is fan work or otherwise not an official, licensed BattleTech publication, but which nevertheless contains only information taken from canonical sources, with little or no original, non-canonical content (Fanon).

In this regard, the BattleTech Wiki (BTW) is itself a Meta-Source.

This means that Meta-Sources are themselves unsuitable as a reference for BTW articles; instead, references should be made to whatever source the Meta-Source drew upon.
