User talk:Volt


Welcome, Volt, 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 "Volt" 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!

Orphaned Astronomy[edit]

Hey, Volt! Any thoughts on where we can "home" these? BattleTechWiki:Project_Orphanage/Orphaned_Astronomy--Talvin (talk) 11:19, 15 March 2022 (EDT)

ola! i think we can do it this way:
  • Barnard's Loop - expand the Deep Periphery article to include notable map objects there, possibly in between The Clans and Bibliography?
  • Cyrene - we don't currently have an Alexandrian Covenant article but I would imagine this would be a notable mention to such an article once it exists. Apparently it's the only Star League-era faction that still doesn't have its own article.
  • Essex's World - include it in the list of Bandit Kingdoms?
  • Lynn's World - this could be mentioned in the Quasit page, and perhaps additionally in the Gorgon page.
  • Sophos - same with Cyrene above
  • SLSC_G1IV.2510 - could probably mention it somewhere in the Interstellar Expeditions article page? it is noted as the site for the farthest anti-spinward operation at the time of writing of the sourcebook.

Thanks for the ideas! I'll see what I can do with these.--Talvin (talk) 09:04, 23 March 2022 (EDT)
I had to settle for linking Cyrene and Sophos off Pharos for now (someone else is working on the faction page soon), but I got it cleared out. Thank you!--Talvin (talk) 11:31, 23 March 2022 (EDT)

Page with no citations[edit]

Hello again, Volt! We have a page that has zero citations and an empty bibliography, and it is definitely in your area of interest. Could you suggest which sources to start with? Galactic Directions It's an important page for the Wiki, and I want to see it meet standard.--Talvin (talk) 16:03, 25 May 2022 (EDT)
