User talk:Straw Boss


Welcome, Straw Boss, 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 "Straw Boss" 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!

Your Recent Contributions[edit]

Welcome to the BattleTech Wiki, and thank you for your several recent contributions. Big or small, every correction and update of information really helps!

It is a welcome change to see a new user around here who isn't a Spambot. If you do not have an account on the forums yet, then you should set one up and introduce yourself, maybe share your thoughts.

Sincerely, ~~ Amaroq Starwind.

Thanks for the welcome! I am super happy to have had Sarna over all these years; it is a big reason why i have kept enjoying BattleTech for so long. Straw Boss (talk) 22:27, 20 May 2018 (EDT)


Straw Boss, thank you for fighting alongside me in the Spambot Wars. For your ongoing efforts to prevent these vandals from cluttering up and choking the life from this independent wiki, I award you the Vandal Cop Award, first ribbon: Vandal Cop Award, 1st ribbon

I've also noticed that you have made 86 edits in your 4 days active here. With just 14 more edits, you will be eligible for the (self-awarded) Edit Count Award (100 Edits) ribbon, and the (also self-awarded) Time In Service Award (1 month) on 15 June. I'll build your award board for you on your fantastic profile page. Thank you for your contributions. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 10:03, 19 May 2018 (EDT)

Thank you, it means a lot to me to get recognition on a site as long running and high quality as Sarna. I do love tiny digital trinkets. Straw Boss (talk) 22:27, 20 May 2018 (EDT)

Wikilinks to products[edit]

Hey Straw Boss, I was just looking at your Morgan Hansen article and noticed that the Antallos Campaign wiki link is to the product: Historical Turning Points: Antallos. That is not really how we handle links in articles on Sarna. Something mentioned "in universe" should always lead to an "in universe" article not a real world one (so not a real world product). Possibly this could be your next article, one detailing the mentioned campaign.--Dmon (talk) 13:42, 24 February 2022 (EST)

That sounds like a good idea! i have fixed the link and i will start researching the Antallos Campaign. Straw Boss (talk) 23:25, 1 March 2022 (EST)
