Sarna News: Bad 'Mechs - Cicada

User talk:Mordynak


Welcome, Mordynak, 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 "Mordynak" 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 (~~~~) or by clicking on the circled button in this image; this will automatically produce your name (or IP address, if you are editing anonymously) and the date.

Again, welcome to Sarna's BattleTechWiki!

BattleMechs Master List[edit]

Hy, i don't understand why you create this list, we have the BattleMech Timetable, you create a redundant page.--Doneve (talk) 11:30, 11 August 2013 (PDT)


Hy, take a look here Help:References this helps.--Doneve (talk) 10:58, 12 August 2013 (PDT)

Not sure how best to go about that. I understand how to make references but if I were to reference every single peice of information i would literally end up with thousands of references at the bottom of the page, or atleast 550. -- Mordynak (talk) 11:05, 12 August 2013 (PDT)
You are right, the ref. list become to long.--Doneve (talk) 11:07, 12 August 2013 (PDT)


Hi Mordynak, since you raised the question on several talk pages: Yes, "Class" refers to weight class - ultralight, light, medium, heavy, assault, or superheavy. Feel free to correct all entries where a role is given instead of a class. (And yes, both weight class and role are technically redundant information in the infobox as the former is already implicitly identified by the unit's mass and the latter is more gut feeling than hard information.)

Adding a link to a category page[edit]

You use the standard link syntax, but you start it with a colon.

[[:Category:Assault BattleMechs|Assault BattleMechs]]

Is that what you were asking for?--Mbear(talk) 12:06, 14 August 2013 (PDT)

Cheers mate. Worked perfectly. BrokenMnemonic also answered on the pages talk page. Thanks though, very much appreciated. -- Mordynak (talk) 12:24, 14 August 2013 (PDT)

Blanked talk page[edit]

Please keep in mind for the future, we don't blank talk pages on sarna!!--Doneve (talk) 13:46, 14 August 2013 (PDT)

My apologies. I wasn't aware it was a problem. Again please accept my apologies. -- Mordynak (talk) 13:48, 14 August 2013 (PDT)
