I'm a fan since 1990 aprox, and thanks to internet I'll try to be up to date with my hobby.
My intentions are to add all information I do have on spanish publications on Battletech. And help on other topics if I can.
As a player we are running with my friends a Mercenary unit (the Oktober Guard) now fighting on 3046 against pirates, and clock moving to Clan Invasion arrival.
I'm also very active in the spanish forum (not official)  where I've even designed Mechwarrior scenario packs (a sort of BattleTech Dossiers, like BattleTech Dossiers: Lamenkov's Liability). The page is full of Spanish fans, our discussions and a bit of everything, even fan free products.
Today, 21/10/2019 I got to 33333 edits, what a nice number.

My List of Wiki Projects
Completed Old ones
I'm trying to add all Spanish magazines to our wiki. At this moment I've added all the ones I do know about. Completed with Covers at this moment:
- Lider --> Kept as sample
Here I'm trying to add magazines on other markets that I do find and that do not yet exist in the wiki
- Mecha Press --> Kept as sample
I do not own most of the Spanish novels, indeed only the first eight, for which I'll try to add also information that spanish translators might have created and also any possible translation error that I know of thanks to having read also the novels in english.
Work is on-going recovering all this information
This is add-hoc ideas I'll try to do. I'll add them here while I think on them. Wishes for 2020 are:
Re-Reading the books
I'm re-reading the books just trying to add minor units/characters that I do found along the way. It is going to be an enjoyable task.
I'm trying to build articles on the minor periphery mercenary units like
Cavanaugh's Cavalry and then then Arms of Thor, the Larsen's Loners, the Nelson's Longbows and for sure other minor ones that I'll find. Just finished these four + a few minor ones. Now I want to review the Field Manuals on Periphery to tackle those mercenary units not described in wiki. Outworlds Alliance gave me 3 happy surprises yesterday... more to come I hope.
I keep going with the minor units...
This is by itself a fascinating world, though usually there isn't much information in them, I do like this :)
I'm going Solaris
I intend to review all Solaris books and Battlecorps information in order to compile it and enhance that section of the wiki!! Lets Solaris for the coming weeks :) Two big mini-projects inside this one I intend to do:
- Types of matches, home leagues... --> Always in progress
Review small histories and some "minor" RPG books that can add additional information (minor are in terms of Solaris VII relevance). Like:
- Old MechWarriors Never...
- A Guy Walks Into a Bar on Solaris VII...
- A Face Full of Blades --> this was a surprising discovery for me, and I'm very have to add this to the wiki
- Natural Selection
- Lion's Roar
==> Add article on the Solaris Gaming Commission
In progress. Any help identifying Solaris Histories that can be reviewed would be welcomed.
Creation of Articles of Solaris City and Stable characters.
- Solaris City --> In Progress - Black Hills
- Stables --> Not Started
- Gangs --> Not Started
Review if list of places from here and in Solaris City Article: MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries/Solaris Advertisements --> Completed
Project Bloodnamed Warriors
Category Link: Category:Bloodnames
- Maybe give table format as in Stables... (doubt)
- Add political information on Bloodchapels and Bloodhouse politics when found
- Amend formatting and decide what to do with the Notes
- Review the books to to dig new warriors to add to the lists
- Review units and create a valid link to them all as individual characters --> Completed
- Amend articles on specific bloodnamed warriors. Example: Angus Labov
Project Unit Command officers
List of Category:Military Commands.
Phase 3: The very Complex Phase
This would mean digging all units and creating its commanding officers (and any officer / warrior that can be named in the unit article and then dig their name in the wiki to see if he commanded another unit, fought in an important battle or whatever we can find just with internal wiki digging.
Review the 5 Great Houses + Star League + Periphery History + Wolf's Dragoons and characters in the original books + the new handbooks.
- House Kurita --> Completed

Phase 3 - Review all TROs

Project Umayyad Caliphate and Castilian Principalities (Nueva Castile)
These two deep-periphery realms are missing a lot of information. I'll try to create articles for their military forces, history and characters. They deserve it.
Mine-Dig Dark Age: 3135 PDA Journals
Pending some Banson's plot.
Project Wanted Pages
Create the characters (real or in game) that appear in the Wanted Pages section: Special:WantedPages, bit by bit.
Create pages of Toy companies with BattleTech official material and their products.
- Tyco --> Completed --> Found some Auctions to fill all images
Project Planets "Political Affiliation"
Ensure all planets from Category:Planets have in the Political Affiliation section all the states they have correctly linked once.
Project Physical Item Image
The only thing that is not going to be checked is the BattleTech Trading Card Game, as it would duplicate information that already belongs to specific Category of Images and Toys, which has it's own category.
Review Category: Physical Item Image to ensure all imagines with artist are correctly credited.
Review Magazines: Category:Magazines
Review all products from: List of BattleTech products
