User talk:Orc Warrior


Welcome, Orc Warrior, 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 "Orc Warrior" 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!

Hey Orc Warrior,

Nice work on your work on Canopus and 2nd McCarron's Armored Cavalry articles, one small problem though. None of it is referenced! We need to know where the info on the wiki comes from, we have a help page if you need it. Help:References. --Dmon (talk) 08:38, 11 November 2021 (EST)

Hi. Thought I did. It’s all out of the MCCarrons Armored Cavalry sourcebook. Must have forgot to put it in. Will update it when I get home from work. Thanks again. Orc Warrior (talk)
Hello. Please add a reference, with page number, to your latest addition to the MAC article. And if you could add page numbers to your previous references it would be appreciated. Verifiability is important. --Cache (talk) 01:47, 30 December 2021 (EST)
Hi. Working on this right now. I am still somewhat of a novice on use of tags and such, so expect a few errors in the way I cite it. I do have the McCarron's Armored Cavalry Sourcebook so I can give the precise page numbers. Thanks again. Orc Warrior (talk)
The refs look good. There are ways to consolidate a ref when one is used multiple times (I updated it), but if you're not comfortable with that, no problem. The important part is that you added the ref information so that users can verify. Thank you.--Cache (talk) 11:20, 31 December 2021 (EST)
