Thanks for your 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 Wikia 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're American, 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:
- the listing of all our help, policy and guideline pages
- our Manual of Style
- our image use policy
- our user page policy
- a list of people whose job it is to help you
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:
London Event Edit
I've noticed that you've removed the vagueness of the dating for the London Event, stating that it did take place in 1969 definitively. Well, no, one source does not trump all contradicting sources because it's more specific. I've removed the fact that Forgotten Son has the definitive answer but kept the info from the book.

- To expand on what OttselSpy25 says, we treat all valid sources equally on this wiki. Please read through Tardis:Neutral point of view. Thanks! Shambala108 ☎ 02:16, September 23, 2015 (UTC)
Archibald Lethbridge-Stewart in The Wages of Sin Edit
Hi, I am trying to piece together information about Archibald Hamish Lethbridge-Stewart from all available in-universe sources. You are one of the few editors who added information about him prior to his appearance in Twice Upon a Time. It appears, however, that your input was almost completely ignored on his own page. You state in Special:Diff/2437254 that Archibald was already mentioned in The Wages of Sin, whereas his page currently claims that the first mention was in Night of the Intelligence. Further, in Special:Diff/2437648 you added information about Royal Artillery and children from the same 1999 PDA novel, which is also not present on his page. This, of course, is a significant change in our understanding of the genesis of the character, making him a much more established 18-year-old :). Could you please provide the exact quotes from the novel? And maybe there is more about him in The Wages of Sin? Thank you in advance. Amorkuz ☎ 09:56, December 29, 2017 (UTC)
