Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark AeD

Thanks for your recent edits! We hope you'll keep on editing with us. This is a great time to have joined us, because now you can play the Game of Rassilon with us and win cool stuff! Well, okay, badges. That have no monetary value. And that largely only you can see. But still: they're cool!

We've got a couple of important quirks for a Fandom wiki, so let's get them out of the way first.

British English, please

We generally use British English 'round these parts, so if you use another form of English, please be sure you set your spell checker to BrEng, and take a gander at our spelling cheat card.

Spoilers aren't cool

We have a strict definition of "spoiler" that you may find a bit unusual. Basically, a spoiler, to us, is anything that comes from a story which has not been released yet. So, even if you've got some info from a BBC press release or official trailer, it basically can't be referenced here. In other words, you gotta wait until the episode has finished its premiere broadcast to start editing about its contents. Please check the spoiler policy for more details.

Other useful stuff

Aside from those two things, we also have some pages that you should probably read when you get a chance, like:

If you're brand new to wiki editing — and we all were, once! —  you probably want to check out these tutorials at Wikipedia, the world's largest wiki:

Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes like this:

Christmas cheer Edit

Happy holidays!

As this fiftieth anniversary year comes to a close, we here at Tardis just want to thank you for being a part of our community — even if you haven't edited here in a while. If you have edited with us this year, then thanks for all your hard work.

This year has seen an impressive amount of growth. We've added about 11,000 pages this year, which is frankly incredible for a wiki this big. November was predictably one of the busiest months we've ever had: over 500 unique editors pitched in. It was the highest number of editors in wiki history for a year in which only one programme in the DWU was active. And our viewing stats have been through the roof. We've averaged well over 2 million page views each week for the last two months, with some weeks seeing over 4 million views!

We've received an unprecedented level of support from Wikia Staff, resulting in all sorts of new goodies and productive new relationships. And we've recently decided to lift almost every block we've ever made so as to allow most everyone a second chance to be part of our community.

2014 promises to build on this year's foundations, especially since we've got a full, unbroken series coming up — something that hasn't happened since 2011. We hope you'll stick with us — or return to the Tardis — so that you can be a part of the fun!


Pearl Edit

Hi, your concerns are duly noted and the admin team thanks you for bringing this to our attention. Please do not mistake the lack of immediate response for the lack of reaction. Unfortunately, this is not an easy issue to resolve, and it requires time. After all, Google is a separate corporate entity that is not answerable to any of the Tardis admin or even to FANDOM. We are trying to resolve the problem and will let you know when we either succeed or exhaust all options. Amorkuz 23:48, May 10, 2018 (UTC)

Hey hey :) I'm sorry for taking so long to answer you, but unfortunately I've been out sick for a few days. Thank you so much for bringing the matter to our attention. I've taken steps today to regenerate the meta tags on the Pearl Mackie article. Due to caching, it can't be resolved immediately. However, we should see satisfactory resolution on the matter by the weekend.

Hey again :) Just to keep you apprised, the meta tags switched over to the following within just a few hours of my above note:
<meta name="description" content="Pearl Mackie played companion Bill Potts in Doctor Who, beginning with the series 10 story, The Pilot. Pearl Mackie grew up in Brixton. According to an October 2016 interview, she desired to be an actor from the age of five, but found that &quot;I didn't see many people who looked like me on TV...">
Google found and started displaying this updated description a few hours later, but not all search engines have followed suit as of this writing. I would expect it all to be clear shortly. Thanks again for pointing out the problem!

10,000 Dawns Edit

Hi, since you were involved in the original debate I thought you might be interested in Thread:258247. --Borisashton 20:36, September 28, 2019 (UTC)

Hi again. A new discussion at Thread:260549 now exists so it would be much appreciated if you could reiterate your opinion or state that it has changed. Thanks, --Borisashton 00:23, November 4, 2019 (UTC)

A subject you're an expert onEdit

Hi Alex, a while back I started a debate, Thread:271132, hopefully to reintroduce categories for queer characters on the wiki. I think you could really help out on this one, since you're pretty much one of the most qualified here. Never Forget The Day The 456 Arrived 00:29, May 22, 2020 (UTC)
