- 01 January 2018: A Happy New Year (Frabby)
- Last year, I'd muse in this spot how the number of new articles seemed to ebb, at "only" some 700 for 2016. Silly me. BattleTech is clearly on the rise, what with the games under development by HBS and PGI, and a new dedicated CGL Line Developer with big plans for 2018.
On the Sarna BTW side of things we're seeing increased traffic, and 1,436 new articles created in the past year. We're back to full swing, and the upcoming year is going to be great.
Here's to a fantastic 2018!
- 24 December 2017: Merry Christmas (Frabby)
- Stompy Robots will probably take a back seat to family and friends during the Holiday season for most of us, but they, too, are never far from our hearts. Have a Merry Christmas everybody!
- 23 July 2017: New Unseen lawsuit? (Frabby)
- Looking for an explanation as to why the newly released Technical Readout: Succession Wars omitted some prominent designs that all happen to be Unseen, fans found that Harmony Gold has apparently filed a new lawsuit against Harebrained Schemes and Jordan Weisman, among others. Line Developer Ray Arrastia stated on the BatteTech Forum that he is "not at liberty to discuss ongoing legal matters at this time."

- It looks like user Fichtenschweif was mistaken for a spambot and deleted by accident. I unblocked the IP. Please accept our apologies, and re-register. (Update: Looks like I cannot unblock the IP as there's no way to find out what the IP even was. Fichtenschweif, please contact me if possible.)
- 20 October 2017 (Frabby)
- We're under spambot attack again. A number of highly dubious newly registered user accounts were deleted even before they could create or edit any articles. There's the odd chance that genuine new users were caught up in the crossfire; if this happened, we apologize and ask you to re-register - and it's always a good idea to add yourself to the BattleTechWiki:New user log to show you're a legit user.
- 19 September 2017 (Revanche)
- The moratorium for Second Succession War has expired. BTW Editors are now free to make edits using this source as a reference.
- 08 September 2017 (Frabby)
- A reminder to all editors: Most BattleTech sourcebooks, rulebooks, etc. are written or annotated as in-universe documents. The Template:InfoBoxProduct was expanded back in 2013 already to include the in-universe agency that purportedly created the document, and when it was written/published in-universe. Product articles that were written before 2013 (mostly) haven't been updated yet to include this information, and newer articles often omit it because they are apparently created off an old article's structure with the older template in place. Given that "sneak preview" information about the year 3250 was provided in the framing context in recent products, all editors are encouraged to use the latest version of the template when creating new articles, and to update older articles.
- 08 August 2017 (Revanche)
- The former project started by Bad_Syntax and Volt Ampere has been restarted by Volt and his Sarna Unified Cartography Society team. They have just released the new SUC Kit, providing updated coordinates and faction ownership history, through all products released in July. See System coordinates for details and release version 2017.08.
