Well - Dropbox has an option for anybody to download, right?

It didn't work for what I wanted, but if a couple people opened accounts (or one opening a couple) you  could use that.

Any other concerns?

Your in luck with Built for war TRO. Look at the infobox (at top) you will see words DOWNLOAD LINK.
Unlike the nuts and bolt books it does have a place to download from.

Any book i put on the wiki that has download source, i will always put download link which will look light blue.

I think it maybe because dropbox is not setup sometimes for public use. To prevent people from inserting say virus ware into the dropbox. I've used downloading one too, but there finite of room.  Its pain.  I wish i could set up a google thing or something that's not so fickle.

I only have the listing for the TRO on the wiki.  I have been looking at the stuff i was given to add to the wiki (I'm still adding things, I'm not terribly fast.) The Dark Phoenix was copied over years ago when Sarna purged fandom off.  Its listed but no links.  I am trying currently find it for you and for the wiki for everyone.

Current Status of the Battletech Fanon Wiki

We have a google cloud to back up the fanon if there no direct link to the original source.

These links are what listing the wiki have. Many I added, some from previous editors and what Sarna.net transferred over. These links are categories that will bring you directly to a page.

Index to Fan Fiction Story - Serial Fan Stories.
Stand alone stories
Fan Made Technical Readouts - Not all are here. Many have links to download or where they can be accessed.
Fan Source Books- Including the expansion of Wars of Aflame, Shattered Dawn, Big Book of Primitive JumpShips, Army Reports, Field Manual: The Outer Colonies, and more
Videos - Stuff inspired by Battletech posted mainly on youtube that linked to the wiki to make it easier to fine. 
Characters Profiles - Listing of characters/npcs made by fans
PC Games Smallest of the stuff note, some of the games are defunct, but I've also listed video game & mods. 

If people know stuff missing, i do have some stuff I'm trying post, please let me know.  I am so fast and technically alone doing this.  There is periodically fans who post their own stuff, with amazing detail still on there regarding the Military commands & individual Mech/fighter/BattleArmor, Warships are also listed as well.  Many are from the fan stories, some posted from TROs, some are people's random postings.  I've given some of them (if they didn't have one) art work., which i do list as well on the wiki.

So it should be noted, some of the older entries links which went to Media fire cloud storage appear have gone bad.

I had back up, so those links have been fixed and redirect to copies of the TROs in the Cloud.

These include:
TRO: Built For War
XTRO: Society
TRO: 3150 Lyran Commonwealth Supplemental (I've added link to the older TRO: 3145 Lyran Commonwealth as well]

Yo, I have MANY designs that were going to be included in the Aries Games and Minis TRO, which I am pretty sure is all but vaporware. Lots of slick fighters and mechs, lots of rich history and fluff. No art, sadly, that was the phase where the project had ground to a halt (curse you, COVID!).

You talking about THAT kinda stuff?

Its shame no art, but you can make into a PDF and put into one book and stuff.  Many of the individual articles for BattleMechs, Fighters, Etc. Sometimes i find pictures for the articles.There are projects with no art.  I've given pictures of covers from free sources or donated. Something i cobble up myself. 

Example is the Naval Archive, if you use download link you won't find any art. It's stats book.  I think best is to make sure it has some organized and wrap it together like PDF or Google Dock.

Hmm. It occurs to me, that maybe I should contribute my own projects.  No idea why I didn't think of that before.  I guess I just don't consider than good enough.

Yeah.  I've come to terms with the fact most of my projects are dead ends.  But, I enjoy them so its not a total loss.

Some of the projects were never finished, so i warn people if that's the case. The last of the Kapteyn Universe books were added, but last books were incompleted.  Missing stats, some cases some art missing.

For me, i try include completed/mostly completed stuff.  Cannonshop has some stories he dropped, but most stories are there for example.
