On a different note...[edit]

On a different note... Welcome back, I noticed a few days ago you where about, it has been about a decade since I have seen you around these parts!--Dmon (talk) 00:12, 7 July 2019 (EDT)

Tripitz edit[edit]

Hi Ebakunin, in your recent cleanup edit on the Tripitz page you removed the "{sic}" part from the bolded initial mentioning of the name. Why? I feel it is important to stress right out of the gate in the article that this "misspelling" is actual canon. In its current form, this information is hidden in a footnote which I feel could be confusing for readers. Frabby (talk) 03:03, 8 July 2019 (EDT)

Hi Frabby. I removed the {sic} because it's not a misspelling "in-universe" but rather an editor misspelling that became canon. However, I'm not terribly invested in the difference. The change has been been reverted. Thanks. --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 18:52, 8 July 2019 (EDT)


Hey Ebakunin,

Just want to remind that your Marotta Kerensky article is still subject to Policy:Moratorium until 18 July. I am sure you are aware, so I am more doing this so I know I am doing my job Wink.gif --Dmon (talk) 19:46, 26 May 2020 (EDT)

We were literally editing it at the same time. --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 20:39, 21 August 2020 (EDT)

Ack. Sorry man. I fixed the content. I don't own the other book. We need better way work out who doing what update. I've on most part done most of the updates on new products. Literally last thing i can do since everyone so fast to add stuff to the wiki. -- Wrangler (talk) 20:46, 21 August 2020 (EDT)
Don't worry. The conflicting edits happen. I was bit weebit upset. but it happens. There is a template that says "undercontruction". However, i've yet see anyone use it in years. I've haven't sever conflict-edits in literally years. Not since Doneve was still active editing. We ran over each other edits all the time. lol. Hopefully we can avoid this next time. --

Bloodname Clans[edit]


Regarding the changes you made on Icaza (Bloodname), I've reverted some of them. We always add the clan where it comes from as there are too many mixed bloodnames, and this can help identify this. Also, warriors are ordered by rank, and inside rank, by first name. Thanks!--Pserratv (talk) 14:00, 5 September 2020 (EDT)

In the case of Icaza, I removed the clan source as the intro specifically says the Bloodname is exclusive to Jade Falcon, i.e. they are no mixed Bloodnames in this House. Otherwise, you're right, I should have placed Magnus in the correct order. --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 15:35, 5 September 2020 (EDT)
Just saw that. Though it is true that all bloodcount belongs to one clan, it is possible to be made abthaka to another clan, and we have tried to keep that information there also.--Pserratv (talk) 12:23, 14 October 2020 (EDT)

OmniMech names in listings[edit]


I noted in your recent edits that you're changing the links for OmniMechs to only one of their dual name. May I ask why? I had deliberately used their dual-name article naming scheme in the lists, e.g. Hellbringer (Loki), because both names are equally "official" and relevant in the context. Also, I cannot see a pattern as to when you're using the Clan name and when you're using the IS reporting name? Frabby (talk) 02:40, 10 September 2020 (EDT)

Disambiguating ship names[edit]


I noticed, while re-arranging your ship list in Icons of War to the established format, that you've used disambiguation names, e.g. "Boarhound (Individual DropShip)". While not per se wrong, it seems superfluous to identify the Boarhound as a DropShip when it is the only known vessel in all of BattleTech to bear that name. Conversely, in cases where disambiguation is required, the exact ship class (if known) is also added, e.g. "Botany Bay (Individual Gazelle-class DropShip)".

Katana Tormark, Duchess of?[edit]

Hey Ebakunin

I have been trying to figure out for years what exactly Katana Tormark is the Duchess of. In your latest edits you have her listed as Duchess of Proserpina with the source being Dark Age: Republic of the Sphere, p. 34. Opening my copy of the source however I can't find any mention of her being linked to Proserpina. Is it possible there are different versions of the source?--Dmon (talk) 18:07, 31 October 2020 (EDT)

I was just doing the housework of adding the missing link for Duchess of Proserpina. The original article text said she was the Duchess and I took it at face value. I was wondering about that too... neither of her parents seemed to have had royal titles, so I don't know how she gained one. --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 18:14, 31 October 2020 (EDT)
Damn, I was hoping for a breakthrough.--Dmon (talk) 21:09, 31 October 2020 (EDT)
She we the strip out the Duchess info? --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 21:31, 31 October 2020 (EDT)

Protected Images[edit]

I've tried to edit these 3 images to assign them to their correct Gallery, but it says they are protected by you: Sarnabar2.gif TIS3.jpg Rasdom userbar.jpg--Pserratv (talk) 07:47, 19 March 2021 (EDT)

There was some cascading protection set following the protection of the userpage proper. I've kept the protection in place on the user page but unchecked the cascade option. You should be able to work with the images now. If there's a problem still, drop me a line. Frabby (talk) 09:36, 19 March 2021 (EDT)
Thanks!--Pserratv (talk) 05:11, 22 March 2021 (EDT)
Thanks for handling that Frabby. --Ebakunin (talk|contribs) 19:31, 24 March 2021 (EDT)
