Something happened in the site while I was trying to edit portions of the BattleTech page. The editing area glitched and now key information was either inadvertently copied or deleted. Can the moderators fix this page? I'm thinking the servers here are getting overloaded and I shouldn't tamper with anything else until this issue is fixed.

Should we add a page for the Great Houses/nations in the Characters page? We do that for most of the other wargames on the site, and just showing significant NP Cs doesn't really get across the scope of the game's universe, in my opinion. I'm willing to start it and populate it with the initial tropes, but I don't want to do it without someone else thinking it's an issue.

There should be an awesome page for this, there are plenty of events in lore that defiantly count.

I think that the plot synopsis should be moved to Synopsis/BattleTech, because the current BattleTech main page is an absolutely massive Wall of Text.

Move the in-depth historical synopsis to the synopsis page, and replace the main page's synposis with a simple summary of the various eras (Pre-Succession wars, Succession Wars, Clan Invasion, Fedcom Civil War, Word of Blake, Dark Ages)

I'm thinking that we need a better quote at the top of the page. The one there is from the games rather than the tabletop and doesn't really summarize the setting very well. Any thoughts. I have a quote from the back of one of the sourcebooks but I'm not going to change it unilaterally.

If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.
