Welcome to my message wall trooper. If you have any questions pertaining the 617th, workings of the wiki, or anything else, please ask! However, DO NOT ask for promotions or medals, as those guidelines are mentioned on the 617th Battalion page.
Hey mate love your work on SQUAD's. If we could only get canon to come to the party on this subject.
I'm a ex- Infantry soldier in The Australian Army of 17yrs myself. I have put together what I believe the "first order" squad and platoon would look like. Can I get your thoughts?
First Order Stormtrooper squad leaders were Sergeant Stormtroopers within the First Order. Squad leaders (Sergeants) were responsible for all
Conducted tactical planning and execution of orders in conjunction with the platoon leader at squad level.
They would lead teams of seven Troopers and one Corporal. The Corporal acted as the Sergeant's assistant squad leader and conducted all administration within the squad.
The squad consisted of two fire teams - Alpha and Bravo. In a flanking attack, Alpha the (Sergeant and four other troopers) would conduct the assault on the objective while the Bravo Team - the Corporal, 2 Gunner Troopers armed with FWMB-10 repeating blasters and a Marksman armed with a F-11D enhanced scope - would provide fire support (base of fire) to the assaulting team.
A Stormtrooper platoon consisted of:
A Lieutenant (Platoon Leader),
Sergeant Major (Platoon Sergeant),
1 Trooper (platoon signaller),
4 Sergeants (squad leaders),
4 Corporals (assistant squad leaders) and
Hello, Legoclones, I am a new member of your wiki, and after reading the rules and sign up, I still was a little confused on how to join the 617th. All I did was add PrivateRank to my profile, is that all? I am planning on adding and contributing much to this wiki so I want to make sure my joint with the 617th is official. I do also want to point out that I really think your idea behind the whole 617th Battalion is brilliant. I am very excited to be a member!
Well you're all set up now! Feel free to edit any pages you wish, or just help around the wiki. You are now placed in Nerra Squad. So, because you're in Nerra Squad, please contact Jep Do Tenko on his message wall, telling him I assigned you to Nerra Squad. You will remain in Nerra Squad for a week, learning the ways of the wiki. But until then, feel free to edit what you like or check out our recommended projects. Again, welcome!
Sorry for not being on lately. I've just been caught up with other stuff, especially since I'm joining a new school and there's tons of summer math and reading to do, as well as some orientation stuff. I'll try to get on when I can, but I don't think I'll be able to make any major edits in these next few weeks. And I will barely have anytime during the winter, spring and fall.
P.S. I noticed a lot of users are being inactive lately. I have no idea where Patrik is.
P.P.S. I'm working on an Umbara fanfic. Do you think it would be appropriate for the troopers to use the current phonetic alphabet, or should I make a new one for them?
Honestly I'm having the same predicament. I've actually considered resigning from my position because I just have so many things to do, and this is without school. And I think Patrik left a comment on Jep's 4th of July fan fic.
And the current phonetic alphabet should work fine.
I feel like an apology is needed, i have not been on much recently. I feel like i want you to demote me because im not a consistent user. I have just been doing other things, it is difficult because i have other things i just get distracted by instead (xbox, youtube, megashare) etc. I am sorry i will probably come on occasionally but don't count on me for anything. It's not a goodbye but a notification that you won't see that much of me.
Its all right, my activity has also decreased significantly. I've ended up having a lot more to accomplish this summer than expected, and because I am entering high school next week, it will continue to diminish. If it gets bad enough, I may promote Blyndblitz to Marshal Commander to take over the 617th and only come on when I can, and just expand pages and stuff. But luckily, we are not at that point yet. But your notice of inactivity is appreciated.
Good luck in high school i have been in it three years already and it's not all that bad, at least where my school is. Also you are smart for a 11/12 year old. Seriously i got the impression you were older than me and im pretty much 14.
Well, sometimes the width of templates are kind of difficult. How much is it over? Sometimes the border can cause problems. If the whole thing is just wayy over, just make it smaller by doing style="width:600px;" or something smaller.
Yeah - don't do it. Honestly, I didn't even make the front page. A guy I knew asked another guy who was like Wikia staff or something and did all that fancy coding stuff. It's taken me an eternity to figure it out. It's really complicated. Just like the infoboxes we have on here, it was a product of Wookieepedia's infobox and a week of major tampering.
you were the one who voted magnagaurds? I didn't vote. Ummm....this might be akward now....let me explain. There is no battle droid wiki yet and umm.. i thought that maybe i might do a litle planing, i still like clones better.
I'm pretty sure everyone will notice. lol. I like the teal border around the messages, and the new (70%?) gray background. (I've been working on a project to, that is going to require alot of complex code)
