User talk:Deadfire


I made the chatterweb news item, as well as due to having a fair bit of experience as an Discord administrator as well as having a good amount of the knowledge required to have it be integrated with the wiki, I told Nic that I volunteer my time to manage it.--Deadfire (talk) 01:24, 22 May 2021 (EDT)

You rock, Deadfire. I've put it on the sidebar, as well.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 06:29, 22 May 2021 (EDT)
The link on the sidebar leads to, just as well I don't see you in Discord! We don't bite!--Deadfire (talk) 11:57, 22 May 2021 (EDT)
Wow...thought I had tested it. Glad you did. Try it now.
And, yeah, I'll register, but I'll probably pop in now-and-then via text (rather than voice).--Revanche (talk|contribs) 12:05, 22 May 2021 (EDT)
Text-only is like 95% of Discord use anyway :P as well not having to install the app and running it in the browser is a plus if you are lazy --Deadfire (talk) 12:10, 22 May 2021 (EDT)
"you are lazy". Now I know why they call you "Deadfire".--Revanche (talk|contribs) 12:13, 22 May 2021 (EDT)
My RL job forces me to think of the "easiest path for people to use things' that my team is creating, so it comes naturally :P --Deadfire (talk) 12:20, 22 May 2021 (EDT)

List of Minis and Products[edit]

Hello! I am new to both BattleTech and Wiki editing, but I have experience with data manipulation of various sorts. As a new player, I've found it very frustrating to track down Minis (and Record Sheets) to their sources. Some lists already exist, but they weren't in locations or in formats I found useful as a new player, and they are very spread out. I started fiddling around on my User page, trying out different table formats for listing Mini products and User:Dude_RB suggested I flag you down. Ideally, we can figure out some way to format the data concisely and with minimal maintenance. Of course, just because I like big monolithic lists doesn't mean that's the best way for everyone, so that's also a consideration. Not sure I have the perspective/experience to make that call. Hope this is helpful! :) --AlekBalderdash (talk) 23:02, 27 December 2022 (EST)

I would take a look at the Project for using Semantic on the wiki. The concerns are mostly that it may make regular editing to complex, if it is introduced. --Deadfire (talk) 21:01, 22 January 2023 (EST)

Project Characters banner[edit]

I see you just updated a bunch of project banners for Project Characters on talk pages. But some of these aren’t characters, they are real people (eg. Gerald Hall or Geoff Swift. I reckon they shouldn’t even be in this project. Did you do an automated update there? Frabby (talk) 03:22, 22 January 2023 (EST)

Aye, it was an automated update, as I was just replacing it's project banner to the correct format. --Deadfire (talk) 20:54, 22 January 2023 (EST)

Wayward Son move[edit]

Hiya, I'm confused: Why did you move the Wayward Son article to a disambiguated name "Wayward Son (Individual Merchant-class JumpShip)" when there is no naming conflict? Any and all links to Wayward Son refer to the same JumpShip. We don’t usually disambiguate the article name on this fashion if there is no need. Frabby (talk) 00:36, 10 May 2023 (EDT)
