The MechWarrior: Living Legends Wiki (MWLL Wiki) is a MechWarrior: Living Legends community project designed to be a repository of information related to the mod and bring knowledge to everyone. It is a source of both game descriptions and many useful hints & ideas.

History

The idea of a MWLL wiki was proposed by MWLL forum guest called Drutort on 21 February 2010.

It has been asked for and we did heed the call: today, we give to you the MWLL Community Wiki at http://wiki.mechlivinglegends.net

When we say "we give to you", that is exactly what we mean: this Wiki will absolutely and only live by your participation, it is a "Community Wiki". Therefore, please ensure that when you create content on this wiki, it is correct and valid as you will be responsible for the quality of this Wiki as an informational resource, not just for new players of course.

— Official MWLL: Community Wiki launch announcement

In its first few days after establishment, the wiki began to grow rapidly, gaining many new editors and numerous pages and updates. Some news articles regarding the wiki were posted on the MWLL site, and in less than a month since its creation the wiki gained a new theme of its own.

On 24 July, 2017, a large effort was started to migrate all articles and files to a new wiki (the very one you are reading from). About a month later, the new wiki was officially unveiled in an announcement on the MWLL Discord server.

The MWLL wiki is the largest compendium about MWLL available.

Current Events

As of July 2017, the MWLL wiki is in the process of being ported over to a new MediaWiki software instance, as the old setup was becoming a hindrance to maintaining and adding to the articles.
