Welcome, GOLFisNOTaSPORT, to BattleTechWiki!

We look forward to your contributions and want to help you get off to a good strong start. Hopefully you will soon join the army of BattleTech Editors! If you need help formatting the pages, visit the manual of style. For general questions go to the Help section or the FAQ. If you can't find your answer there, please ask an Admin.

Additional tips
Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the wiki:

  • For policies and guidelines, see The Five Core Policies of BattleTechWiki and the BTW Policies. Another good place to check out is our market of Projects, to see how the smaller communities within BTW do things in their particular niche areas.
  • Each and every page (articles, policies, projects, images, etc.) has its very own discussion/talk page, found on the tab line at the top of the page. This is a great place to find out what the community is discussing along that subject and what previous issues have already been solved.
  • If you want to play around with your new wiki skills, the Sandbox is for you. Don't worry: you won't break anything. A great resource for printing out is the Wiki Cheat Sheet.
  • If you're not registered, then please consider doing so. At the very least, you'll have a UserPage that you own, rather than sharing one with the community.
  • Also consider writing something about yourself on your UserPage (marked as "GOLFisNOTaSPORT" at the top of the page, though only do this if you're registered). You'll go from being a 'redshirt' to a 'blueshirt,' with the respect of a more permanent member.
    • This is really helpful for the admins, as it gives your account that touch of "humanity" that assists us in our never-ending battle with spambots.
  • For your first few edits on the wiki, please do not add any URLs (which can be an indicator of SPAM).
  • Consider introducing yourself on our Discord server.
  • In your Preferences, under the edit tab, consider checking Add pages I create to my watchlist and Add pages I edit to my watchlist, so that you can see how your efforts have affected the community. Check back on following visits by clicking on watchlist.
  • If you're bored and want to find something to do, try the Random button in the sidebar, or check out the List of Wanted Pages. Or even go to Special Pages to see what weird stuff is actually tracked by this wiki.
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name (or IP address, if you are editing anonymously) and the date.

Again, welcome to Sarna's BattleTechWiki!

All Purpose Award[edit]

Morning, GOLFisNOTaSPORT. While patrolling the Recent Changes page, I saw the redirects you created. Redirects are like the sewers underneath our cities: people rarely think about them, because they /do/ work. In the case of redirects, many times readers, both new and regulars, rarely recognize that variations of proper titles are getting them where they really want to go. In fact, I hadn't even thought of the value of a concerted redirect effort until I saw your's. So, to recognize your 'out-of-the-box' thinking, I'm presenting you the All Purpose Award:

All Purpose Award, 1st ribbon

Also, I see you've been posting here since early March, which means you're also entitled to the Three Month Time In Service Ribbon. I've put both of these on your user page. Four more edits and you'll be eligible for the 100-edit Edit Count Award (based on your User Score). In the future, both of these are updated by yourself, so keep contributing! (Details on the Awards page.) Thanks. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 13:32, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

I noticed your corrections to my link changes on the large and medium laser pages; I thank you for that and your varying helpful, behind the scenes work, so I think that you deserve this Casual Edit award: Casual Edit Award, 1st ribbon. Keep up the good work, sir. -BobTheZombie (talk) 14:47, 9 December 2013 (PST)
