Master Unit List[edit]

I know you're not quite done yet, but I wanted to thank you for adding the Battle Values to all those unit articles with the new Master Unit List. It's a hell of a job and I'm glad I'm not doing it Wink.gif. Have an all-purpose award! All Purpose Award, 4th ribbon

P.S. Even though I know where the info is coming from, others may not, so can you please use citations for each of the BVs you add? Thanks. --Scaletail 03:03, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Hy Scaletail, thanks a lot for the award Smiley.gif.--Doneve 10:15, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I have bad news for you, meet me in ICQ and I tell ya what I thinking about some things :)... Neuling 15:04, 16 August 2010 (UTC)


Hey, Doneve: why did you not include the complete Year template on 2005? --Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:04, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Upps, ok, i add the complete template.--Doneve 22:06, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. We know some people will not read the policy but copy others; that's why we need the first people to be correct. Thanks. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:09, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
No problem, have a good day.--Doneve 22:10, 30 March 2010 (UTC)


I see you have a lot of messages on this page. Would you like me to archive them for you? --Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:14, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Oh yeah, thanks a lot, but can you give a litte leason how i arcive it in next time by myself?--Doneve 22:16, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Sure. In fact, you can do it. Here are the steps:
  1. Create a page named User talk:Doneve/Archive1. "Archive1" can be any name you want.
  2. Copy all posts from your talk page (by opening the "edit" tab).
  3. Paste the posts on the Archive1 page.
  4. Save Archive1.
  5. Delete the copied posts from your talk page.
  6. Add a link to Archive1 at the top of your talk page. (ex: *[[User talk:Doneve/Archive1|Archive1]])

Let me know if you need help. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:27, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

It's done.Thanks a lot for your little guidline.--Doneve 22:40, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Glad to help.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:52, 30 March 2010 (UTC)


Hey, Doneve. Question: in 2013, why did you put the Battle of Moscow under Events, instead of Battles?--Revanche (talk|contribs) 01:27, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

I miss read the section, and clarifily it must add to the Battle temp.--Doneve 01:30, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Great, thank you. Thanks, too, for catching my errors on Takayoshi Fuchida‎‎. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 01:39, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Hold up[edit]

Hi Doneve. Would you please hold up on the new year formats until I finish writing the templates? Thanks a lot. And thanks for the enthusiasm! --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 03:45, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

The first draft of the template is done. Head over to the talk page and let me know your opinions. Thanks for waiting. --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 05:01, 31 March 2010 (UTC)


...on the completion of your CCG project. Nic's interest in the category is notable, for it was one of the first projects he completed (and bumped up BTW's article count considerably). However, now it looks much more complete and useful. I'm curious: how did you do it? Do you have the complete set?--Revanche (talk|contribs) 14:48, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Hy,1.) ok i must fix some little failurs, i do this in next time
   2.) my brother and his friends have the most of the cards, he is a SF,Fantasy CCG Cards freak.

WarhawkPPC and picture sources[edit]

Hi Doneve, thank you for updating the files so quickly. But WarhawkPPC is a Meta-source at best - the pictures are actually taken from various computer games I gather. The correct source would thus not be WarhawkPPC but whatever game they took the picture from. Frabby 17:54, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the information, i search for the right sources and added, but i think at the moment the added source is ok for the moment.Doneve 17:57, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Actually, it is not, because it could imply we consider ownership to lie with that website (or a reader presumes we do). (Things get complicated when the law is involved, isn't it?)--Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:05, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh I understand, sorry for my failur, please can you delete my Gallery page, i find a serious way to start this gallery new.Doneve 18:07, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, not speaking for Frabby here, but I'd be happy if you just delete the references, until they are correct.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:42, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Wink.gif--Doneve 18:45, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Hy Rev i deleted my references, its done.Doneve 19:03, 6 April 2010 (UTC)


Hey, Doneve: Per the 5th Guideline of Policy:Images, all images need to have a descriptive caption, like you provided for Gallery of Camospec images. Please go back and add captions to the other galleries you've created. On another note, I'm changing the name of Category:Gallery Images to Category:Galleries, which is the better description of the category. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 00:17, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Also note: I've added the master category to the left-side column, under Background. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 00:26, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Hy Rev i add the description later, i forgot i and thanks for helping--Doneve 10:06, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Vandal Cop award[edit]

For deleting and reporting spam made earlier in the day:

Vandal Cop Award, 1st ribbon

Thanks. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 11:32, 12 April 2010 (UTC)


Hint: When you upload scanned image - raise it's contrast, so that black would be black, and white would be white. (ctrl+L in photoshop to open Levels menu, than move arrows on left an right towards the middle) - this way images will look like that instead of like that, with text from other side visible and black being dark-gray. :) The Colorful Project 16:40, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Hy, thanks for your tip, i am not so involved with Photoshop.--Doneve 16:46, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, you don't have to - each more advanced image-software got the "Levels" option somewhere. Also scanners in their native software have an option to tune-up the contrast. And it's always like: Pretty image > not-so-pretty image ;) The Colorful Project 20:53, 13 April 2010 (UTC)


Doneve, please go back and fix the mis-spelling of the word 'district' in each of the affected articles you've written today (and yesterday?). Also, what ever template you're using, if you could fix the word there, too, so its not a problem for another 50+ articles. Thank you. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:02, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

WarShip/DropShip infobox request[edit]

Just an FYI: I put your request for updates to the DropShip and WarShip infoboxes on the Admin's page to try to get some discussion about them.--Mbear 13:32, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Okidoky, no problem.Doneve 13:39, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Didn't hear any objection to adding the Small Craft/ASF line to DropShip and WarShip infoboxes, so I just did that. It's an optional field, so if there are no values, the line will be ignored. You'll probably have to go back and add it to the infobox for most of the Ships, but I assume you knew that already.--Mbear 14:51, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
Absolutly, good job.--Doneve 14:54, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

SLDF Articles[edit]

Hi Doneve. Question: Why aren't you listing example: Why isn't X Corps listed as 209th Light Horse Regiment‎'s parent command?. Also, X Corp would have the parent command as First Army. -- Wrangler 20:17, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Hy Wrangler, the info is in The Star League, p. 140 listed, and i picked up this example from Revanche, as he start with the SLDF in the past, i see no problems with this.--Doneve 20:24, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Numbering the SLDF units inthe cat page[edit]

The SLDF unit designations only go up to four digits (9999th Mechanized Infantry Regiment being the highest) so you do not need to add the fifth zero on at the beginning.. it is redundant. Keep it to four and the units should all be nice and ordered in the Cat page --Dmon 09:49, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Uppps my failur, thanks for reporting me.--Doneve 10:24, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Just looking at the SLDF commands page and the 52nd Royal BattleMech Division is in the wrong place, it is mixed in with the regular Mech Divisions... I am tempted to leave it their. Do you think it might be beter to have all the Royal Divisions grouped with their similar Division "types" rather than with the other Royal units? --Dmon 16:00, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Hy fell free to make changes, when you think it is bett, i finish in the next 2-3days the SLDF's, and tnx for fixing my little errors ;)--Doneve 16:12, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
If you are happy for me to do that I will move them about then. No worries about me fixing the little errors... is the advantage of a nice little community like ours. Things have turned a tad busy in the real world so I will insert the OrgTrees after you have finished creating all the articles. --Dmon 16:23, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Okidoky, when i finished with the articles, i make the changes. It's better when all units added.--Doneve 16:27, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

OrgTrees in SLDF in your articles[edit]

Would you approve if I started inserting my Organization Trees into your SLDF Regiment articles? The Battle and Striker Regiments are already a perfect fit and I can modify o SoL template to fit a Heavy Assault Regiment. The others I will have to research more. --Dmon 16:48, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Hy Dmon, why not, it gives some structure to the units, good idea.--Doneve 16:53, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
I will get started tomorrow some time then :-) --Dmon 16:57, 14 May 2010 (UTC)



I just saw you're back after having something to do with a nuclear knife. First, I'm glad you're back and I hope you're doing well and won't have to have another meeting with the knife.

Now the important questions: Did your meeting the nuclear knife give you any superpowers? Was the nuclear knife technician piloting a No-Dachi? (The Sword does have a depleted uranium core after all) Wink.gif

Seriously, welcome back!--Mbear 14:29, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Hy Mbear, at 1st, i had problems to smuggle this ...knife out of the hospital, i'm a little bit sadly about this point at 2nd ohh year the knife give me unexpected power Wink.gif, now you see it on my last contributions Smiley.gif, nice to hear from you.Greetings--Doneve 14:44, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Red Corsair Article[edit]

Doneve - Can you justify the change you made to the disambiguation? ClanWolverine101 05:17, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Hy, i make minor changes, i remove the stub template from the top of the article, we have section stubs on it, and change note to notes, not a big think.--07:15, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
No, I understand. I just thought putting it at the top was normal for disambig issues. ClanWolverine101 07:49, 16 May 2010 (UTC)


Doneve, please be aware that the MUL is not yet canon and should not be cited. It hasn't been vetted by CGL for accuracy, so any mistakes put in there would be repeated here, but without the benefit of being automatically corrected upon becoming official. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 17:07, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Hy Rev. i don't understand. I make no violence when you mean Operation Klondike, ok in the past but i removed my images and references. Or what you mean, have you a link or example??--Doneve 17:16, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
I could have been more clear. I meant this edit where you credited the MUL. It is still in draft form and is not yet official. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 17:46, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah, Bing. Now I understand what you mean, i have a eye of the Manuf. Timeline, and fix the litte thinks.--Doneve 18:03, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Aerospace fighter variants - RS3039[edit]

Could you please include the page number when you cite RS3039? It makes things a lot easier for others who want to look up the source. (Assuming of course that you have the page numbers.) Thanks!--Mbear 12:38, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Uppps, i fix it.--Doneve 12:54, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Merge Proposal for Cities articles[edit]

Hello Doneve, i believe its better to have the city articles your writing up to be merged into with the Tharkad article. There not enough information on them to warrent in my opinion its own individual article. I wrote something like this for Atreus. Also, the listings on how you have these cities, will confuse people to think their planets. -- Wrangler 15:12, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Hy Wrangler, i know, at 1st: i forgot the stub template on the city articles, and second i figure out the city articles in the next days, then i put my city articles on the primary page Tharkad. Youn know my english is not the best, and i need some time to integrate the city articles (in better english) and fix some things, but my work is in progress.Thanks--Doneve 15:24, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
So they're Temp Articles? That's cool. :) But yeah - I don't personally think any geographical location on any planet merits its own page. Just my thought. ClanWolverine101 17:56, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for support, i think too, more comes in the next days ;):)--Doneve 17:59, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Information about SOlaris VII stables[edit]

Hi, schau mal in dein ICQ ich habe dir einen link geschickt mit Informationen über die Solaris Ställe. Bestimmt helfen sie weiter... Neuling 18:48, 30 May 2010 (UTC)


I noticed that you have taken up improving the BattleMech pages. Thank you. If I may make one small correction, however. The guidelines at Project BattleMechs specify the format of the variants, and the title is not to be bolded. Thank you for your attention to this matter. --Scaletail 00:05, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Hy Scaletail, ok i don't bold the format variants.--Doneve 00:44, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Infobox: Heat Sinks[edit]

I saw that you added a row for Heat Sinks to the Template:InfoBoxBattleMech. I modified your row slightly so that if the heat sink information is missing, the row disappears. That prevents a situation where there are a lot of 'Mechs with heat sink rows showing even though they're blank. (I've done the same thing to the Infoboxweapon template for Extreme range, and the DropShip infobox for small craft.)

It just makes the articles look a little cleaner if the blank rows aren't shown.--Mbear 18:46, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Ok thanks.--Doneve 19:36, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

For your updates to the 'Mech articles[edit]

Doneve, please update your awards board with this: Random Act of Appreciation Award, 3rd ribbon which I'm giving you because of your hard work on updating the 'Mech articles. Keep up the good work!--Mbear 15:53, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Hy Mbear thanks a lot, i find the 'Mech articles must become a little referencece update, ok some BV are not referenced but i do this in next time.--16:07, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

5th, All Purpose Award[edit]

Hello, Doneve, for your valiant service in helping with a newbie whom posted article too soon for its time. I grant you the All Purpose Award, 5th ribbon 5th All-Purpose award to you. Thank you.

Be Careful with Articles[edit]

Hi Doneve, i'm sorry bother you. I noticed couple article posted by a user named BigBear (13th Roaring Panthers Legion & The 1st Valkyries Legion‎), appeared online today. You edited them. These article had no sources, but extensively written. I believe they were Fan article stealthy being placed in Sarna. Please keep your eyes out for unsource articles! Take care -- Wrangler 13:22, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

I have a eye on the articles, but i want to give the contributer a chance to fix this, when not we tagt the article with the needed template.Greetings--Doneve 13:27, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Multiple Jade Falcon Incursions[edit]

Hi Doneve, there haven up to 3075, three Jade Falcon Incurisons. The first one was also ended with Battle of Conventry which lead Victor Steiner-Davison to push for the creation of Second Star League. The second incursion is the one you referring to, that happened during the FedCom Civil War, it that one happened in 3064. Third one happened in 3068-69, when Falcons did brief incursion and it was mentioned in the Jihad Hot Spots books. -- Wrangler 13:39, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Good call, Wrangler. This doesn't even include the various "border wars" that took place between 3052 and 3057. ClanWolverine101 21:55, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Question Regarding Copyediting role[edit]

Hello Doneve, i'm little confused by your removal of wiki links in year 2141. What did you mean by only i wiki link per line? Is there policy your carrying out or something? -- Wrangler 12:05, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Hy i mean the Policy:Year Pages, there is listed only one link pro line, please take a look to the policy page.Thanks --Doneve 12:08, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Another AP award[edit]

Doneve, I've just added your 7th All Purpose Award (All Purpose Award, 7th ribbon) to your board, because of your work updating the images with license info. That's a tremendous amount of work and I appreciate it. Wow!--Mbear 12:49, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Republic of the Sphere in Planet Articles[edit]

Hello Doneve. You've been alot info in the Planet article from WizKids website. Is possible to leave out information that include the governor, Population, Governor, Planetary Legate? This information is exclusively from year 3130, the planet article should not be dated to a certain year. Can you move this information to new section of the article like Republic of the Sphere era info? Something like that? -- Wrangler 16:47, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Hy, no problem, i fix this, but give me 2-3 days.--Doneve 18:46, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
Hi Doneve. I suggest you use by what Harry did with Mallory's World planet data as Example. He seperated the planet info per year so information from Republic and from earlier times is list chronical logical order. Very hard working guy! I wish i had your energy. Take care -- Wrangler 17:24, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Hy Wrangler, thanks, I see the edits by Harry, good work, and the chronical order is very good, i think we adopt it to all planet articles.--Doneve 20:07, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Another Award (as a proxy for Awards-to-be)[edit]

I have given you another all-purpose award (your 8th - impressive!) because the admin awards you deserve for your incredible work on updating all the system coordinates - Diligence, Tireless Contributor and Community Service Award, respecitvely - unfortunately have not yet been implemented. I'm going to nominate you for the former two as soon as they become available, and would have given you the latter if we had it. In the meantime, another all-purpose award will have to do. :) Frabby 18:22, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Hy Frabby, ich schreib dir mal in deutsch, wenn es ok ist ;).

If you put images to articles always provide a size of them, even if you put them 1:1 scale into the articles. It saves a lot of work in future. Thanks, The Colorful Project 17:33, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Hey Colorful - for my own reference, can you give an example? ClanWolverine101 22:21, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
THANK YOU! I have not the means nor the time to place images into my bio's for the Taurian Concordat, I am most grateful for your help.Deeppockets 16:11, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Republic Worlds Info[edit]

Hello Doneve. I just made correction to Caph, regarding Writers Confirm PDF is incorrect. its moons. Apparently the DA Republic Worlds PDF has some problems in it. Some information in the PDF maybe not correct. You may want to double check on things when you reference information from the PDF. Do you understand? -- Wrangler 01:47, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Absolutly, thanks.--Doneve 14:14, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Support Please[edit]

Hey, I have a huge project on the run and need support/ideas for the best solution. The 1st Aragon Borders is a example for future work. My idea is do rework all units an bring them to one level with the same structure. I have done the same to the mercs lately. Only a few units are left, but this is only temporary. Please view it an give my a response. Any support is welcome... Neuling 18:21, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Article tagging[edit]

Thank you so much for tagging articles that belong to specific WikiProjects. Frankly, I'm surprised that so many needed this treatment. Though it is insufficient for the work you've done, please accept an all-purpose award. All Purpose Award, 9th ribbon --Scaletail 00:09, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Scaltail.--Doneve 14:23, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Ground Unit Tagging[edit]

Hi Doneve, I had question for you. I noticed you've tagged things that aren't Ground Units. Like the Zanadu‎, Poseidon Mobile Engineering Platform‎, and Baleena. Are you suppose to be taging non-ground units with that tag of yours? -- Wrangler 15:13, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

OH, i remove the tags.--Doneve 15:15, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Doneve, your still tagging non-ground vehicles. Aren't you reading what your tagging? -- Wrangler 16:06, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Ok, Zanadu etc. is my failur, but when you look on the Ground Vehicles site, the ProtoMechs falls under this category, and yes i read what i am tagging!--Doneve 16:18, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Hi Doneve, i wasn't talking about the ground (mech or mech-link) combat units. I was talking about the Submarines, the fixed wing aircraft and stuff link that. I know you have alot going on, but i'm just pointing out stuff does not fall under ground vehicle thing. I am sorry if i sounding rude. -- Wrangler 18:47, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
No problem Wrangler i fix my little mess.--Doneve 18:51, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Doneve, thanks so much for adding pictures of the Khans. Lord Pestilence 00:36, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Planet Imagines[edit]

Hello Doneve. I have re-done the Caph imagine placement. I realize you don't like its placement. But moving it where you like it distorts the planet infobox and shift all the text down the article leaving huge blank space. Please be mindful of this. Thanks! -- Wrangler 21:35, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Hey, its me again. Please regard my work and give me a short review of it. What are you thinking about it. My goal is every day a brigade to complete. All single historical events will include later, when i finished the project sites first. Seeya Neuling 12:47, 1 August 2010 (UTC)


Doneve, Policy:Images states that images that are added to BTW are supposed to assist in understanding the text or to illustrate the subject. The images you recently uploaded into the Dawn of the Jihad Gallery are not used in any other articles. Is there some plan to do so? --Scaletail 14:11, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

/* Organization Structure */ response[edit]

Organization Structure[edit]

Hy Mbear, I jump in, then I add the gallery's of Neulings Organzation Structures, but i must say, i talk with Neuling every day in the ICQ, you know we are german natives, and nice to see it comes a notice for Neulings edits, he makes a really good work about the newly added Organization structure, he added it and i fix little thinks (gallery, tags, etc), a hand to hand cooperation, you are the first admin to bring a statement to his last work, ähm sorry for my rough englisch ;), but i think you know what i say..., and again sorry for my grammar ...past and tense failurs in the conversation grml. Greetings --Doneve 04:31, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

I remember both you and Neuling aren't native speakers of English. (And I respect your efforts to learn such a messed-up language!) And I agree, Neuling has made a lot of very nice improvements to the Wiki. If I implied otherwise in my message to him, I'll apologize for that. Neuling's work strikes me as being a "diamond in the rough" as we say over here: A few cuts and trips to the polishing stone and it's great. That's all I meant about the Organization tree images.
If you're working in the gallery I mentioned on the Task Force Serpent page, please realize that my comment wasn't "This sucks, get rid of it" it was "This is a great start, but could be so much better with just a little more effort." It was like seeing someone run a marathon and then deciding to drop out at mile marker 25 instead of finishing the race.--Mbear 14:08, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
No problem Mbear, i read it right (i understand all, but my translation ins english ;)), sorry for reading problems. Greetings --Doneve 17:47, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Plagiarism In Periphery world information[edit]

Hello Doneve, I know this old news, but I've found alot plagiarism in periphery worlds from the old Periphery Sourcebook. Please don't copy word for word information from source books, its illegal. -- Wrangler 17:32, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Hy Wrangler, i dont know what you mean, i only added the Planetary Data and Era Specific Data, and no fluff text.??--Doneve 18:39, 22 September 2010 (UTC)


Hey, my friend. Can you regard my latest work on the 4th Succession War and give my a short awnser about your opinion. And please tell me wy you doesn't use the ICQ chat. With best regards Neuling 21:36, 23 September 2010 (UTC)


Doneve - I really like these additions you've been making with the planetary articles, but I'm not sure "Garrisoning" is the best term. Maybe "Planetary Defense" or something like that? Just a thought. ClanWolverine101 19:36, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Hy what you think about "Stationed Military Force or Forces".--Doneve 19:38, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
I think the garrison force title is fine. Its short to the point. Garrison is a name which typically is name of defending force on a planet in the Battletech universe. -- Wrangler 22:13, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
I agree with you.--Doneve 14:24, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Field Manual: Inner Sphere[edit]

Hi Doneve, i just saw you post this picture. As far i know, there is no canon publication named Field Manual: Inner Sphere. Can you double check this source's name. Thanks -- Wrangler 22:41, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Neufeld found it, Don. Please becareful actual sourcebook your getting your info from. Thanks. -- Wrangler 01:33, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Families and other minor factions[edit]

Hy, I had for the past several days a new project in mind. To show the important families in each realm and other important minor groups. But I had no idea which is the best way to show this. Another project is the 4th Succession War maps in my gallery. What do you think is the best way to place them. Tnx for your help. Neuling 07:29, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Hurricane Duplicate Imagine[edit]

Hi Doneve. Please be careful about when you post the XTRO imagines. The vehicle imagines, like the Hurricane are usually duplicate imagines. The Hurricane imagine is the Defenders. Can you double check next time, please? Thanks -- Wrangler 16:14, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Oh sorry, yes i double check, thanks for telling me.--Doneve 16:18, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Capitalized titles[edit]

First, thanks for adding my recent biographies to the Biographies WikiProject. I need to get better about that.

Secondly, there is no need to capitalize titles (such as sho-sho or major), unless they are preceding the name. For example: "Four majors made up the command staff of the unit." "Sho-sho Mitsotisa told his sensei he enjoyed the tea ceremony."

Lastly, there is no need to add a hyphen to bibliographies. The proper format is to separate sections of a biblio with a comma. For example, take a look at the corrected biblio for Sajori Mitsotisa. If notes are to be added to a biblio, to provide expanded data, the relevant information would follow the biblio with a colon. For example: Jihad Turning Points: Luthien, pp. 6-7, "Combatants": Sho-sho Mitsotisa told his sensei he enjoyed the tea ceremony.

Thanks, Doneve. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:11, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Ahhh ok, thanks, and nice to hear from you, after a little wiki break. Greetings--Doneve 18:41, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Update needed tag for very old products[edit]

Why did you put an "update needed" tag on the Longbow page for Starterbook: Sword and Dragon, a 3 year old product that has long since been out of moratorium? Since there was nothing in there to actually warrant an update, I have removed the tag. Frabby 17:14, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi Doneve, same issue again: You've put an "Update needed" tag to Mongoose (species). Why? The CBT Companion has been in print for ages, you could have edited its information in right away.
I am not sure if you understand the purpose of the "Update Needed" tag: It serves as a reminder to include information from a source that is still under moratorium. In all other cases, especially concerning older product, please don't include the tag. Just go ahead and edit in the missing information. Frabby 19:43, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Project: Unfinished Book[edit]

Morning, Doneve.

I saw you joined BattleTechWiki:Project Unfinished Book and look forward to working with you. Right now, the only mission is for Jihad Turning Points: Luthien. With the addition of both Wrangler and yourself, I started giving greater thought as to how best organize this very coordinated group effort. One of the positions I felt was lacking was Fact Checker. From that I better defined the other positions (now 'Research Writers' and 'Copy-editors') and worked on the organization structure of Project: Unfinished Book as a whole. I thought your inclusion as Copy-editor was a good fit for your talents (and actually defined the role a bit better with you in mind). If you're interested in taking direct assignments, please let me know by acknowledging at BattleTechWiki_talk:Project_Unfinished_Book#Team_member_Verification:_Doneve, and I'll start you on your training!--Revanche (talk|contribs) 14:40, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Sorenson's Sabers[edit]

Hello Doneve, why did you remove NAIS The Fourth Succession War Military Atlas Volume 1? The unit may not been named, but they were part of battle that was in that book on Northwind. Their ones who delivered the virus the knocked out the 5th Deneb Light Cavarly. -- Wrangler 00:05, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Hy Wrangler, i don't remove it, i add always a link to the bibliography section.--Doneve 12:27, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry Doneve, i just looked at history, mis-read it. I apologize for being snippy. -- Wrangler 12:49, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Daniel Sorenson[edit]

Hi Doneve, thanks for adding updated imagine. However, i'm confused. Why didn't just simply go to the one i uploaded and just simply clicked on Upload a new version of this file? That would save on alot of redundant imagines floating around and retyping info. -- Wrangler 12:48, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Hassid Ricol picture[edit]

In the article about Hassid Ricol, why did you remove the notion underneath the picture that it is apocryphal? I feel this is a very important fact to point out. Unfortunately, there is no other picture of him. Frabby 21:24, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

I think, the aphocryphal tag in the image summary template is enough, noted that is from a aphocryphal source, i think it is ok.--Doneve 23:12, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

References section[edit]

Hi Doneve, I was wondering why you are inserting a <references /> footer into articles that have no reference tags at all, creating an empty references section and moving the only source referenced to a new section called "Bibliography" (like in 'Mech Duel Rules, for example)? I don't think articles should have empty sections, and I think source references do belong into the references section; Bibliography is too broad for my taste. Frabby 08:26, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Hy Frabby, i have at this time, not my Solaris VII book, to hand, i want to added the reference notes later, thanks.--Doneve 10:37, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Game Rules styling[edit]

Doneve, I know Rev was talking about setting off the Game Rules information, but now I can't find the discussion. Do you have a link to it somewhere? Thanks!--Mbear 15:35, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry no, but iam in work for searching it and send it to you, my opinion is, when unsigned peopels or others, seach on the site, example: Technology Rules, or other game aids, it looks much better when the game rules, etc. section, was presented by a stylebox, for better imagine ;). Hy hope it is ok...Greetings--Doneve 17:50, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Question : Renaming an Article[edit]

Hey Doneve - how do I rename an article? There are three Gerald Mariks and they are very much out of order. ClanWolverine101 03:45, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Hy, use the move button from the article, in the top.--Doneve 04:00, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

New/updated pictures[edit]

Hi Doneve, when uploading a new version of a picture that already exists on BTW, you don't have to change anything. Instead, you can simply upload a new version of the file on its image page. See VMI.jpg for example - there are links to edit the picture with external software, or upload a new version of the same picture altogether. Uploading a new version means all articles will replace the new version with the old version, and you don't have to change the filename or anything else in the article name. Frabby 15:10, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Hy Frabby ok i uploaded a new version of, but i cant see it on the site, there put me the old pic on the article, what is my mistake???--Doneve 15:59, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
