Hello! My name is Nic Jansma and I'm the founder of sarna.net. I'm currently living in Grand Rapids, MI, and am working as a software developer for Akamai.
I run sarna.net and a few other websites in my spare time. If you have any ideas or suggestions, or want to help out, please let me know!
Feel free to leave a note or send me an email! You can also connect with me on Discord.
2023: I am not actively contributing to BattleTechWiki articles, but am always working to ensure the site is running smoothly (including monitoring for vandalism and other problems). I check my talk page periodically if you wish to leave a message.
3067: In the year 3067 my ghost will be ruling Ashio. Beware!
History of Sarna.net
I started sarna.net in 1994 after finding BattleTech 3rd Edition at a local gaming store. Getting into web programming around the same time, this site was born. Eventually, I began searching far and wide for every BattleTech file and tidbit I could get my hands on, and compiled it into the site.
The site has gone through several designs, with the core content growing every year. I've put in a lot of time and energy into the site, and feel it's a good resource for the BattleTech community.
In October 2006, I converted all of sarna.net into a wiki with hopes that the site would morph to what the community needed. From there it's grown into what you see today!
Thank you to everyone who helps out!
