Page swapping Edit

Looks like User:Cyruptsaram hit a snag while attempting to disambiguate people called Rob. The "vanilla" Rob should be on Rob (The Chromosome Connection), while Rob (Disambiguation) should be the "normal" location of Rob with all the links changed. Maybe you could explain to him about how you do that sort of thing. -- Tybort (talk page) 21:27, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Documentary categorization Edit

Yes, I saw how you changed From Avalon to Argolis and tried to do the same with my next edit. I'm still trying to get the hang of categories, there are just so many. Sorry for the trouble! Shambala108 03:34, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Good to know about the documentary tutorial, I will be watching for it. And thanks for fixing my talk page, it's been bugging me for months, but I didn't know how to fix it. Shambala108 03:44, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Spotlight Request Edit

Hi. Tardis looks great and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. I'm not sure what is up with the categories on some of those pages that are still being listed as uncategorized...; have you reported it to Special:contact?? Somebody else may have seen it somewhere. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:23, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Message received and understood Edit

Hi CzechOut, still havent sorted out message alerts from you - good job I czech daily <gedit :)> Anyway been working back on some old issues so not much new added at the mo'll be pleased to know Im being attentive to image sizes - still got a problem with some comic captures where I only have one decent bubbled pic to choose from but hey, I'm trying. On the date matter - well that makes more sense. Thats how (in my very early days) I started doing them but someone went behind me and split it all up into parts hmmmmm so thats why its been done as it is - sorry was. Consider my templates ammended. Just let me know if you spot me misbehaving again - Im sure you will! BTW glad to see the link to latest news restored on the home page.

Edit box issueEdit

Edit box text issue

Text box issue

Have you run into this problem? It's something that's been plaguing me for a while, but didn't really get in the way of me editing. Basically I can't click the text anywhere around the custom preload pagename box. Scrolling beyond it works and on really short articles I just push the text down to edit it and then bring it back up once I've finished. Thanks. --Tangerineduel / talk 04:39, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

BACK! Edit

I'm back! !ṂěṭáṛdIṢ 2020Thuatpm 23: 04Just William Wiki 09:43, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

changing publication to anthology Edit

All I'm doing is deleting the word "publication" in the infobox and replacing it with "anthology", that's the only pattern. I think I've done the first twenty or so Short Trips anthologies, but it's a pretty tedious job so if it can be done by the bot I could do something more fun.

Before I started this, I searched several places looking for a reference to put in the edit summary, but couldn't find any; I should have asked you in the first place. Thanks! Shambala108 03:34, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

I was doing them in anthology order, story order, and left off at For the Man Who Has Everything (short story), which is followed by Tell Me You Love Me (short story) and The Cutty Wren (short story). These are all in the anthology Short Trips: The Ghosts of Christmas. Shambala108 03:57, September 8, 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for your advise, I might give it a try. Cyruptsaram 08:34, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

Ok I know I can be stupid but.... Edit

Hi CzechOut, RE: the message alerts lol - luv the bat-signal analogy btw. I've got that part! :)

I'm getting the wiki alerts and invites, I'm getting the Game of Rassilon scores, I'm getting ALL that. What I'm NOT getting is alerts to messages left on my talk page - in a bat-signal style blue balloon, or as a notification in the top line of the screen (like appeared in the wiki test you did on muppetwiki) ...but its workable I check more regularly now when I log in and intermitantly. The Librarian 21:59, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

I'm getting 1-4 but NOT 5 (and I know what it now looks like cos I've seen it on muppetwiki :) The Librarian 23:11, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

Video and novelisations queries Edit

Hi ...on a different topic entirely... as well as being busy rescanning some cover pics for a mammoth day uploading (often smaller but also some larger scans), at <100kb, I was wondering ... which is better galleries or tables? The reason is, I'm looking too add more to the 'Home video and audio releases' section of story pages, which would incidently include the DWDVDF releases. IF tables were preferred would there be a problem with a gradual change over?

ok showing stupidity again!! Just been exploring the side tabs! Doah! but can you direct me to how to create a related image page. Thanks. The Librarian 01:16, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

AND ... I seem to have missed the discussion to remove novelisation details/links from story listing pages :( ...even though script books have been retained -even if they are a script not necessarily what was broadcast). Put a lot of work (and still not yet complete), into Target Books even if they are now BBC and was wondering...! The Librarian 00:39, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

likewise just found the very discreet link at the top of the info box. Is it the plan to have a separate commercial releases page for each story that would encompass cassettes, VHS's, DVDs, audio soundtracks, recordings and readings?The Librarian 01:16, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Change "DVD, video and audio releases" and "Home video and audio releases"Edit

When you've got a spare moment, could you do a bot run on these two and change them to "Home media releases"?

I think with 55+ stories on iTunes and as you've noted on the forums how people view what "video" means, I think Media might be a better catch all term. --Tangerineduel / talk 06:44, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Redirect Edit

The protected page for The Dalek Project should have a (comic story) on the end. It SAYS (comic story), but that's a quirk of {{TitleComic}}, it's not actually on that page. -- Tybort (talk page) 20:33, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Table headers unreadable Edit

The table headers on Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories are white on near-white, which makes them well-nigh invisible & certainly unreadable. The exception is "Released". I assume this is a side effect of allowing sorting on the other columns. Whatever the cause, the colours need to be changed.

Note that the header background briefly shows as blue (sensible) when I first navigate to the page but is replaced by near-white within a second or less.

There may be other tables elsewhere afflicted by the same problem. I've not tried to look for any, so I don't know. -- to me 02:23, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Phew - thats sorted then.. Edit

Hi, I'm sorry if there was any misunderstanding. I've only ever raised the issue of not getting no.5 alerts and thats because I was a bit 'slow' into replying (ie taking note) of some comments (especially if they were threads), 'cos I wasn't made aware they had been posted. Now I know its my fault I'll try harder - heavens knows how you keep on top of things! :) The Librarian 02:35, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Graphic polocy Edit

out of curiousity, what is our policy on graphic content exactly? I saw here you call the wiki "NSFW", but where do we stop? I mean there are many Doctor Who sorces with huge nudity involved, Zygon: When Being You Just Isn't Enough being the best example, what is our policy on that? (I do not actually want to add any pictures like that really, I am just curious) OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 22:17, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

Establishing Interface with Tardis Edit

Out of curiosity, how did you add the Tardis Image to the edit load? Ricky Spanish 00:38, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

Badge bug Edit

Is it just me, or has everyone else's badges been replaced with my own? Or is it possible that people have chosen not to display their earned badges and so it's just showing me mine, or is this an actual error of some kind? Memnarc 03:55, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Woah! He's right! It's doing it to me too! OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 04:12, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Prefixes Edit

You know, if you're going to be universalising the source prefixes, you might want to make a modification or two to the prefix header, since its image consists of all of the now-obsolete DW, SJA, TW, MA, etc. prefixes.

Just occurred to me. Dr. Anonymous1 13:07, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Issue with changing prefixes Edit

Not all PROSEs are PROSE, as per your bot correction. After about 2010, they became audio stories, once Big Finish stopped producing Doctor Who literature. -- Tybort (talk page) 15:41, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

I must admit, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to editing on here (and any other wiki, for that matter) and I've been having a bit of trouble editing the homepage. I want to change the most recent Torchwood novel and DWM comic to 'Exodus Code' and 'The Broken Man' respectively (unless of course we're not supposed to add a comic until the story is actually complete, in which case it would be 'The Cornucopia Caper'). Anyway, when I click the edit button, I'm presented with an incredibly unhelpful display which doesn't actually let me change the contents of the page.

Having trouble editing the home page Edit

Hello. I must admit I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to editing a wiki, and I've been having a bit of trouble editing the home page.

documentary page Edit

Hi! I was creating some documentary pages for The War Games and came across a problem. One of the documentaries is called Talking About Regeneration, and when I tried to create it, it was blocked by the spam filter, apparently triggered by the words "Talking About." Is this something that can be fixed? Thanks! Shambala108 01:45, September 17, 2012 (UTC)

Spell Bot Edit

Thanks for your help on the forum. Is there any way to run the bot only for content pages (pages excluding redirects, talkpages and all..)? Ultimate Supreme talk · wiki I · wiki II  05:46, September 17, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. The spellbot worked really great. I am doing another text replacement now. I was wondering if there is a way to add an infobox as an exception? Ultimate Supreme talk · wiki I · wiki II  01:03, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah the spellbot worked really great but for some reason it was changing Sabre to Ssabre....not a big issue though.
As for the infobox: I think I would soon need to change a character's name to something like, "....., under the guise of ....." but I don't want to change it in infoboxes. The discussion about the change is going on and I might not even require to change it but still, asking you in advance. Ultimate Supreme talk · wiki I · wiki II  05:21, September 24, 2012 (UTC)

That's too bad. Can you link me to the particular forum? I'd like to know the reasoning behind removing the infoboxes, even if I can't affect the change now.

As a side note, I would like to contribute to forum discussions more, but I find them so difficult to navigate. Memnarc 02:58, September 18, 2012 (UTC)

Bablecolor Edit

I've discovered that Babelcolour worked with the BBC in 2005 on a special feature entitled The Dalek Tapes for Genesis of the Daleks. I wanted to create his page, given that he did work with the BBC, but you blocked it's creation, given that at the time we knew of no corrilation between him and the bbc. Could you please unblock it? OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 09:56, September 20, 2012 (UTC)

He also is apparently working with them on the official BBC coloration of The Mind of Evil, as well as other projects from the Restoration team... OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 10:02, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
Babelcolor proof

There's your proof.

Yeah, sorry, when I noticed the page was now create-able, I presumed you had unlocked it as a sort of "Go on..." motion... I'll look at Geneses later. to me 17:14, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, when I first created the page I saw a message that said "This has been blocked from creation" and a note that said something like "A page shouldn't exist for Babelcolour until he has worked with the BBC officially, no matter how much we like his (copy-right violating) videos. -Czechout.

Hi, Czech! Thank you for your comment about my sig. Since I've just now read it, I haven't changed it yet, but I will soon. Also, I added a bit on the Jaguar (animal) talk page, but I'm not comfortable editing an actual article except for spelling and grammar yet. Hopefully, I'll feel educated enough soon to try.

Blogs and prefixesEdit

I'd not even thought about the blogs and what that might mean for the prefix switch over. I did read the community update, so knew you were doing something with/to the blogs.

There's not anyway to get a list of the non-bot run articles is there? So we've got a list of articles we have to manually check? Anyway, they'll all be found and fixed eventually. Thanks for keeping me in the loop. --Tangerineduel / talk 04:36, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Righty. Thought I'd offer. I'm glad of the potential short list of pages. It's not like I miss the days where I'd do a series of 1000 page edits over a day or three. --Tangerineduel / talk 07:50, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

I saw this page on the activity feed and thought I'd drop by and ask how I should create a blog here.

Nav AssistanceEdit

Hey there CzechOut!

My name is Jorge and I am on Wikia's Community Development team (and a Dr. Who fine besides I might add). I was sent a notice that you would like some help getting the TARDIS ready for expanded nav implementation in October. Looking at the testwiki and this one, I realize you may have actually figured out a solution already. However, if you still want some assistance, let me know by leaving me a message on my talk page. I'd love to help out any way I can!

This is probably a stupid question, but I can't figure out how to make a blog post. I looked at the sidebar, and despite what the badge says, there is no button to start one. Cult Of Skaro 17:26, September 28, 2012 (UTC)

In that case, why is there a badge that requires you to make a blog post?

Thanks, will remember in the future. Cult Of Skaro 17:54, September 28, 2012 (UTC)

T:SPELL and filesEdit

Do we really need to maintain redirects for files? Files aren't usually things that are searched for, nor are they usually mis-typed the same way that articles are. Files have a different usage path I'd have thought, you usually upload or look at a file before using it. And as it says in the Help:Namespace "the rule doesn't apply here so it's not "wrong".". --Tangerineduel / talk 16:49, September 29, 2012 (UTC)

Craaaaaaaaaaaazy Dismag idea... Edit

Why isn't Doctor Who (1996) titled Doctor Who (TV story)? I know we've had that name for a while, but... I think it's time for a change. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 22:17, September 29, 2012 (UTC)

T:SPELL & Sky Smith Edit

I noticed an edit to the article Sky Smith by User:CzechBot at 16:04, September 29, 2012, commented "Enforcing T:SPELL". That edit changed "enrolled" to "enroled" -- that is, it changed the correct British spelling to an incorrect spelling, which appears to be the opposite of what it set out to do.

I've not looked for any other instances where this has happened but, since the username suggests an automated process, there may well be others.

Please note: My IP address changes frequently, so there's no point leaving a response on my User talk page -- it won't be mine for more than an hour or two. -- to me 21:55, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Any chance you could actually create a user account? It'd be very helpful to actually carry on a conversation with you. I'm not sure where to respond to you, so I guess I'll just go here, but I really don't like carrying on conversations entirely on my user page.
The bot process is not completely automated, but, yeah, this was a bit of a mistake. Enroll is one of those tricky things that's spelled differently on both sides of the Atlantic, except in participles. So enrol, enrols, enrolment, but not enroled, or enroling'. I went a little broad with the programming, but thanks to your pointing out the error, the programming has been tightened up. I don't think there are too many other flat out errors with the bot, but if they exist, they're going to be in this sort of -ll madness.
czechout@fandom    00:29: Tue 02 Oct 2012
That's correct, it should be enrolled. Confirmed by the Oxford English Dictionary. (Note: your reply wasn't there when I originally typed that, I was hit by an edit conflict) I reverted the bot's edit.  Digifiend  Talk  PR/SS  KR  MH  Toku  JD  Garo  TH  CG  UM  Logos  CLG  DW  00:36,10/2/2012 
This is one of the few cases where I'd say that reverting an error may be unhelpful. When you revert SpellBot errors, you make it harder for me to teach the bot what to do. Also, please never change a bot error on the basis of your interpretation of a single dictionary. For the long term benefit of the wiki, I need to be informed of what you think is an error, and then I need to make a determination as to whether it really is an error. There are many cases where one BrEng dictionary is in disagreement with another (travelling is a good example, as some BrEng dictionaries accept traveling as okay, whereas others don't).
czechout@fandom    00:46: Tue 02 Oct 2012
Ah, sorry. I just thought "spelling mistake, correct it". By the way, I think it's effecting 'rr as well as 'll words, for example, "referred". I just came across "refered" on the A Town Called Mercy page, which my browser's spellchecker is reporting as a spelling mistake. I don't know if the bot altered it or it was spelt that way in the first place, but it should be "referred" (I double checked with a Google search, which offered the same correction), so I changed that one too, before reading the above comment.  Digifiend  Talk  PR/SS  KR  MH  Toku  JD  Garo  TH  CG  UM  Logos  CLG  DW  00:57,10/2/2012 
Nah, there are no significant differences in -rr words. SpellBot doesn't come anywhere close to the word refer. That was just a plain, old typo. SpellBot doesn't correct all spelling errors — just Americanisms. And I should stress that there's not generally a problem with -ll words. This is only a problem with that small percentage that go with -ll in participle form. Of these, I'm only aware of the error with enrol. Others, like appal and enthral are fine. That's not to say that all the bugs have been squashed, but SpellBot is largely effective and doesn't generally have an "-ll problem".
czechout@fandom    01:12: Tue 02 Oct 2012

From your response to Digifiend, I'm glad I spotted that it might be (& I now know it was) an automated process & didn't just correct that one error.

As for creating an account: I tend not to join things or sign up for things uless I really have to. I might (if I can find time) fill out the article on Dæmos Rising. (I have the DVD & have watched it, which nobody else seems to have done). If so, I'll probably register before I update the thing, so I don't end up looking like a dozen different users instead of just one. Otherwise, I expect I'll continue to lurk & only make my presence known when I feel like it -- a bit like the Doctor, except my face (IP address) changes more often than his. (I was 78, earlier) -- to me 14:01, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Well, in truth, it's a semi-automated process. I do have to approve each change manually and I just let this one get by me. Thanks for catching it and improving SpellBot!

October 3rd Wiki ChangesEdit

As I'm sure you're aware, this new "improvement" chops off the right side of our pages. I'm hoping you're tech savvy enough to fix this, since Wikia Central won't be changing back, apparently.

This only actually affects 1024x768 screen resolution, which evidently isn't supported any more. I'm not happy about it either (as my old monitor can't display a larger resolution), but there's nothing we can do about it. There is another problem also - when I go to Undo something, the editing window doesn't appear. Therefore, if I'm reverting something, but want to edit something else at the same time (say, to correct a typo), I have to do it in two stages. It should be possible to do it in a single edit, but isn't because the version comparison appears INSTEAD of the editing window, rather than above it like it's meant to.  Digifiend  Talk  PR/SS  KR  MH  Toku  JD  Garo  TH  CG  UM  Logos  CLG  DW  00:42,10/7/2012

The right side margins on the article pages here have been moved! If you did that, thank you very much!!  :D On a less important note, the talk pages are still full screen, so the right margins are still missing on these pages for me. Fortunately, only 10 pixels or so. Thanks!!  :) Jay JLOMThings turn out for the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out - John Wooden 00:42, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Prefixes Edit

I'm sure there's deliberation over the out-of-universe prefixes, but I'm assuming it's fine if HOMEVID, GAME and NOTVALID are added to Tardis:Prefixes? -- Tybort (talk page) 19:10, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Also, I'm gathering that Valid sources/Detailed list needs amending thanks to the bot move calling everything AUDIO, AUDIO, AUDIO and AUDIO and so forth. -- Tybort (talk page) 21:19, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

Error in Connections to media franchises categorisation Edit

The people in the Actors who appeared on Game of Thrones category should really be Actors who appeared in Game of Thrones. I'm guessing that a bot job is the easiest way of fixing this? -- Tybort (talk page) 23:08, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

Another error on a locked page Edit

The short-form of this wiki is Tardis, rather than TARDIS, right? Because in Tardis:Tardis Manual, there's a segment which goes "Firstly, the articles on the TARDIS wiki are presented as historical recordings that have been pieced together from scraps of information left over" -- Tybort (talk page) 22:18, October 7, 2012 (UTC)

DWTV Eleven pic Edit

I noticed that the DWTV template's Eleven picture is getting to be rather small, given how many episodes Eleven has. I'd like to suggest this [[2]] as a possible replacement. Memnarc 10:24, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Never mind! Tangerineduel took care of it. Memnarc 07:29, October 21, 2012 (UTC)

Screw-up of dab Edit

What should be a normal "Beltempest" (as I can't see any other in-universe Beltempests") is disambiguated as Beltempest (Human). Only an admin can fix this properly (and naturally the bot can change over the links), as Beltempest already exists as a redirect to Beltempest (novel). -- Tybort (talk page) 19:04, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Also, Anthony Williams should be on Anthony Williams (artist), while Anthony Williams (P.S.) should be on the un-disambiguated page. I'd have probably fixed it myself, but I was wary as to whether P.S. was technically a deleted/unproduced scene narrated by Arthur Darvill. -- Tybort (talk page) 14:29, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Of the minute templates Edit

Hi, I'm having some trouble with your 'article of the minute' templates. I copied it all over to the DWCW correctly, and it works fine, except for one issue - I have four of them on the same page, and despite being completely separate templates, they always show the same thing. Can you help at all? See Tardis1963 talk 00:16, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Bad English: "one of the only" Edit

In several articles, I've noticed the phrase "one of the only". This is bad English. In every case I've encountered, the intended meaning is obviously "one of the few". From a quick Google search, there are about 1440 articles containing "one of the only", so I'm not going to try correcting this solecism manually.

Hebrew Wiki Edit

Note that w:c:tardis no longer links to a Hebrew wiki, because there are 2 of them, both having just 1 page of content. If either of these 2 Hebrew wikis gets a community going, we might relink in the future

They grow up so fast don't they? The Hebrew Doctorpedia now has... drumroll please... 485 pages. As the administrator of my own Wolfenstein Wiki I would sincerely recommend sending in an interlanguage link request for the English and Hebrew wikis. That would give the hard, hard-working editors of the Hebrew wiki the recognition and attention they deserve- hell, 485 pages? I'd give them a MediaWiki:Sitenotice spotlight, myself!

As a matter of fact, the interlanguage system for this wiki is in a tad of disarray. Several of the wikis you link to on the bottom of the page are not formally interlanguage linked, and can not appear in MediaWiki's language section on the Main Page. I would recommend sending in a request for EVERY possible combination. That would best be achieved as follows:

  • de
    • de to en
  • es
    • es to en
    • es to de
  • nl
    • nl to en
    • nl to es
    • nl to de

Et cetera. That way we know nothing is missed on any wiki. It might get a bit unwieldy with all the requests so one might consider creating a user subpage then linking to that user subpage on the requests page.

Or alternatively, you could grant me permission to manage this- I've been through this multiple times, for my wiki and others. Whatever you decide, thank you for contributing to the international Wikia community! Elecbullet 03:10, October 23, 2012 (UTC)

I am not from the Hebrew Wiki. I haven't edited the Hebrew wiki. I don't speak Hebrew. I don't speak anything other than English. I don't even watch Doctor Who. I just love to help the foreign-language communities grow and prosper, so I go around to random wikis and help them link themselves to the English wikis. If you look at w:Community Central:Interlanguage link requests, pretty much half of the requests there are by me.
I am disappointed that I am not immediately permitted to make the change. I left a message on the most prominent user of the Hebrew wiki advising him to make the change in URL. But still I will disagree with the rules. It's always the biggest wikis with the most stringent policies on these things, whereas me on my little old Wolfenstein Wiki found a Korean wiki with literally zero content and a weird-ass URL and linked it immediately. As much as I love a symmetrical URL system, I enjoy linking foreign wikis even more, and the best way to get wikis past that 30-article mark, I think, is by linking them here.
But I'm sure you can't make policy singlehandedly, so I'll leave it be with a message to the Hebrew user. Thank you anyway. Elecbullet 18:17, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

Strange prefix - Possible Bot error Edit

It seems strange that the direct-to-video production Downtime has the prefix PROSE in Lethbridge-Stewart family#Kate Lethbridge-Stewart and her descendants. According to the article's History, the prefix was changed from MA to PROSE by CzechBot 11:48, September 17, 2012.

Since this is a Bot edit, there may be other instances of this or a similar error.

Sixth Doctor main image Edit

Just curious, what wasn't T:ICC compliant about the image that I added? I based its dimensions off of another infobox image (although for the life of me, I can't remember which one...) Memnarc 06:04, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

Just noticed... Edit

...on List of Doctor Who television stories page the Missing Episode Key alongside First Doctor, shows up as blue boxes and I don't mean TARDIS' :) The Librarian 15:12, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Past tense story articlesEdit

With story article pages, we've all been writing it in the past tense, but the Manual kinda says the contrary. T:TENSES contradicts this on the story article front while Tardis:Point of view is a bit more vague on the subject. Whilst Help:Editing states everything except living people articles should be in the past tense. I was going to edit them all into line so they all state everything in the past tense except living people etc. --Tangerineduel / talk 02:10, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

Suggestions Edit

Hey, thanks again for the reply on the forum thing. Anyway, I've been interwiki-ing a while and found some things you might want to know. Firstly, those badges for the 500+ articles... I don't think they should always show "500" when someone made over 10000 edits on an article or such. I think there should be an infinity mark there, or at least something else that you think is fitting other than the 500. Second, I notice that on your interwiki, "he:" is active, though said wiki has been closed (I don't know why, though I'm a little curious). Either way, you should ask at Central or somewhere for the "he:" interwiki to be removed, it's confusing. And lastly, I hope you don't mind I contribute mostly in interwiki, for now there's not much I have in mind to contribute on the articles on the English Tardis and I'm thinking of resurrecting the Romanian one, though I have other projects on the backlist too, so I can't guarantee much. But I'd like to see this site doing well, so that's why I'm writing these suggestions. Well, cheers! --Anime Addict 11:59, October 29, 2012 (UTC)

Where is it costumary to answer? On this page or mine? On some wikis, it's costumary on mine, but usually, on the other editors'. Anyway...
  1. Actually, I am aware of that problem with badges, and I still don't get why you have to make the badge specifically for 500 and not for infinity? Why put a number there when you know it'll repeat itself over and over for active contributors? Sure, for someone who won't go past 500, it'll make sense, but are they the majority or the minority? Does the fact that it says on the Achievements page "This badge is for the 500th edit" mean you have to put 500 there? Just saying, maybe you should think outside the box.
  2. I'm glad you're aware of that, as long as it's being handled, there's not much I can say on the matter. I actually don't know Hebrew and am not affiliated to the language, religion, beliefs etc, I was bringing it up as a technical matter.
  3. Well, the admin there hasn't edited since August (and not actively since June or April) and there are 4 badge-wearing registered editors. 3 of them are the admin, me and you. That says a lot of the condition of the wiki. On the bright side, I'm glad there's a skeleton on it and that I didn't have to start it from scratch. On the other, activity has been zero since August. I've been thinking of asking the admin, admin powers myself, or you. Or I'll make a request on Community or see if the guy is interested in returning. Time will tell I guess.
  4. That is a surprisingly comforting thing to read! To tell the truth, more technical-eyed and not content-adding oriented editors like myself are sometimes frowned upon/looked down on other wikis. Glad my edits are appreciated on that matter! --Anime Addict 14:43, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
Just to make things clear, I don't want to steal the guy's thunder, or cause anything bad to the Romanian Doctor Who Wikia. I'd be sad if because of my observations, punitive actions against it would be taken. I also am not sure of my involvement there in the medium term, in the short term at least I'd be interested to clean it around the corners, implement diacritics (if there's no problem with that), maybe ask for the MediaWiki to be upgraded (doesn't seem like it's been done in a long time). I'm currently already involved in two Romanian projects that I asked for and staked my word that I'll improve them (here and here) and I've been joking with the latter's admin that I'm already dividing zero by 2, now it'll be by 3 (3 Romanian wikis). I also didn't recover as much as I wanted for the Tropes Mirror Wikia, while there at TV Tropes they're deleting sections and articles like there's no tomorrow, and some may disappear for good if I don't watch the discussions well (and, being divided as I am now, I don't really keep as much tabs as I should there). So as you can see, my medium term priorities are stacked. Short-term and a few edits here and there is cool, and in the long term I may leave the Mirror with a sufficient userbase and admin base to be self-sufficient with less of my contributions, but it doesn't seem it'll happen too soon. That being said, I'll hold off from going to Community and let you work things out. Of course, you having bureaucrat there would probably be for the best, and I will be at least fairly active around Wikia to get any messages you or other editors on ro.DW may have for me. --Anime Addict 12:25, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

RE: .png format disallowedEdit

My apologies once again, I'm not entirely familiar with the customs of this Wiki, it's quite different from ones I normally frequent. Which is also why I misread your regulation as <1000kb; I've never encountered such a drastic restriction of image size before. I will once again re-upload the image in the correct format and the correct size. - Halo-343 10:46, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

Worlds of TimeEdit

I can understand why Worlds of Time wouldn't be considered a valid source, but why delete articles based on Worlds of Time because of that? Reversinator 16:35, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

Question about the game. As it's an invalid source, do we refer to Ember (planet) as simply Unnamed planet (A Christmas Carol) again, as that seems to be the in-universe source naming the planet as such? Also, do we remove references to it on lists of appearance pages and infoboxes? -- Tybort (talk page) 23:15, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Czech Edit

I think I'm going to give up :(

I'm trying to keep up to date but seemed to be getting more bogged down by preloads and categories than CONTENT which is what is why everythings taking so long. Because I often work on several pages at once thats why I choose not to do it online but I have really been making an effort. I dont get instant notifications if Im being told that I'm doing something wrong which we are agreed this wiki doesn't have, but I do more frequently check my page AND the message boards which dont always reflect the latest dates of running threads or seems to have long periods of inactivity. In short its becoming more of a chore than a pleasure. Shame. Just thought you should know. Again sorry I keep cocking up. The Librarian 23:37, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry about earlier was just getting a bit dispondant thats all.
The message bit is sorted I know that there isn't a problem as such its just that I never seem to be able to keep up with your comments about what I'm doing wrong and although I do check my talk page for feedback I can't check it every time I do something to realise I've done it wrong again.
I AM trying to modify how I'm working as you may have noticed, (especially image sizes), just so long as people realise that the red links will be revisited asap when I go back to revisit the recent pages and tidy them up.
There just seems to have been a lot of changes recently and I've never been too hot on categories - I can't even work out how to go back and add/change a category to an image that I've missed or overlooked once its gone to publish! In most cases the categories aren't there for me to use because I'm creating new ones and I realise thats something I've got to work on.
Its a new day so after some sleep and more tea I might feel better :)
I do appreciate your help/support but you must remember the whole wiki thing is second nature to you and sometimes I find it a bit harder! The Librarian 05:37, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

New badge glitch! Yaaaay! Edit

We have a new badge bug. Yay. Maybe you should update this] to reference our new bug. And oh this bug so much worse than the last, I'd rather not be able to see any other badges then have no personalised badges... OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 01:27, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

Who is Magnus? Edit

That discussion WAS relevant to the disambiguation page. If you had read the original point of the discussion, it was that Magnus was an earlier incarnation of The Master. A message by Gary Russell confirmed that both he and Flashback(comic)'s author Warwick Scott Gray intended Magnus to be The Master. Anyone who has ever read that comic comes to the same conclusion:Magnus=The Master. That other person then said "Oh, are you saying that the War Chief is the Master?" Well, that was NOT my original intent. My original intent was that the Magnus on the disambiguation page should be a link to The Master. That's it. From there, however, the point became "Gary Russell and Warwick Scott Gray both state that Magnus was created as an earlier incarnation of the Master. But Divided Loyalties says..." Of course, all the stuff clearly illustrating that Hulke, Dicks and Holmes had the Delgado Master as the regenerated War Chief, explaining the obvious points about how Timewyrm:Exodus doesn't in any way shape or form mean that the War Chief can't also be the Master, and the pointing out the inherent flaws and contradictions in Divided Loyalties were to reinforce the point that Magnus in Flashback is the Master. In fact, even if we count Divided Loyalties as fully "canon", there is STILL nothing in it that means that Magnus can't be the Master. The other interesting points are that only when the creators say something isn't part of the main DWU/canon/whatever is it listed as such here. That is not true. When did anyone ever state that Death Comes to Time is non-DWU? When did anyone ever state that Dimensions in Time is non-DWU? When, for that matter, did the makers of the Peter Cushing films state that those films are non-DWU? But the original point remains....Magnus was written as The Master. Even Gary Russell says so. And there is nothing in any medium that prevents him from being precisely that. to me 13:04, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Game of Rassilon errors Edit

Since the forum topic seems to be closed, I'll ask here: do you guys have trouble with adding new categories for the badge system? Because on my wiki, it gives me a database error whenever I try to add a new category. --Anime Addict 21:24, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Nvm, today worked. Though it's still buggy as hell. I know, I know, not your fault, just sayin'. --Anime Addict 12:02, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, definitely still buggy. It says I still have to earn the badge 'Howdy! Welcome to the TARDIS' and '5-inch Grandma Connoly, despite my having long ago earned them. Cult Of Skaro 21:58, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

It's worse on my wikia. There all of the badges have reset and can't be earned. My top badge says "make 10 edits on articles" with the number "(3817/10)" by it. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 22:27, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, on Grandma Connoly, it says 310 out of 5 to go or the like. Cult Of Skaro 22:36, November 7, 2012 (UTC)
Well, look at that. It's doing that here now. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 03:55, November 11, 2012 (UTC)

I don't know if this is universal yet or not, but my talk page no longer has any troubles with math. Cult Of Skaro 23:44, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

Pcred and Job table Edit

Yah, sorry about that. I'll hold of from now on. I added the headings just purely for classifications reasons, which now I come to think about seems a bit daft. Most job pages, simply have 'Person X is the only credited person in this job' - which, when you added the job table you find is not actually true.

If I was to suggest an improvement for job table, I would try and a group the episodes together by the person. Instead of having a list by episode, in which case the same person could be listed a number of time, they are just listed once, with all the episodes they are credited for beside them.

As for Pcred, I would keep it as it it handy to list a person's credits when they have been credited in a high number of stories, but with people who are credited in a handful of stories, it easier to go to 'What links here' and fill it out by hand.

And while I;m talking about... Will the Classic series pages ever have their cast lists converted to a table? Would make it easier for the crew of the classic stories to have their credits on their pages (if that makes sense)

Anyways, cheers for the heads up about the tables. MM/Want to talk? 23:34, November 11, 2012 (UTC)

Fokus Edit

Is there any way I can disable fokus personally? I find it annoying.     ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (talk page)  09:53, 13 November 2012

Doctors infoboxEdit

Opposed is such a harsh word :), I think I was the only one on 'my side' being for something that wasn't on either side of the table. I think the {{docpic}} implementation is good way, especially avoiding having a GIF. Although can the dissolve be slowed down? It seems a little bit fast. I think you need to be able to read the a paragraph in the intro before it changes, otherwise the dissolve is a little distracting. I'm counting somewhere around 3-5 seconds per image depending on when you start counting. I think maybe up that to 7 seconds or maybe even 10 seconds. --Tangerineduel / talk 13:44, November 13, 2012 (UTC)

Msgrr infobox Edit

Can we please change File:AinleyMaster.jpg at template:masterpic to File:Ainley master survival looks left.jpg or something of the like? The image we have now just looks so poor, it makes Ainley look bad. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 01:01, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

DVD documentaries Edit

I've been creating these pages with information from the back covers of the DVDs. I haven't watched most of the documentaries yet so I don't know all the infobox information. Since I can't fill that information out I'll stop making new documentary pages for now. Sorry for the trouble. Shambala108 05:25, November 15, 2012 (UTC)

Perspective, points of view, tensesEdit

That looks good.

I think I'll add something to the T:OOU about not writing an article as though someone's dead. You can say "Adam Smith directed The Eleventh Hour" but it takes on a slightly different meaning when you say "Adam Smith was the director...". Or does it? Technically both are correct and the latter doesn't actually imply they are dead. Or is it just enough to link back to the T:LIVING PEOPLE.

The other thing I'd like to add to the T:POV chain of articles as an NPOV page (neutral point of view), the only instance of a mention is on the Help:Editing and it's a fairly fleeting reference. I know we all know or try to write all articles with an NPOV but I'd like a page to direct people so we don't ever have to get into discussions about why we don't say the Daleks are "evil" or whatever. I'll get to writing this hopefully soon or in early in December. --Tangerineduel / talk 09:09, November 15, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for leaping ahead and creating an NPOV article, I genuinely was going to get to it! I have a list and everything, it was "create NPOV article and social media/twitter policy" and then there's a long list of stuff I want to rewrite like the Tardis:Resources page which has been languishing unchanged for close to 4 years rewrite here: resources rewrite if you're curious, mostly it's just a bunch of DPLs. --Tangerineduel / talk 05:07, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

Banned Again? Edit

Hey, Czechout, I recently noticed that my user page seems to say that I am "banned from Chat"; this seems odd, considering that I have tested it by visiting the Chat, so everything seems to be in order. So why is it there? Dr. Anonymous1 21:40, November 15, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I kind of figured that it wasn't a conscious decision on anyone's part; still, these glitches DO seem to be happening a lot lately; up until today, my badge progress on all applicable Wikis was going all wacky, stating, for example, that I had 245/5 for a bronze award. I wonder why that happened...

Well, thank you for taking the time to fix that problem; I know it's not that big a deal, but I appreciate your help nonetheless.

By the way, I might not be as active around here as I usually am for the next few weeks; I recently became a Bureaucrat on IZ wiki, and we're undergoing a LOT of revisions and renovations. But then again, I guess if you think promotions are all fun and games, you're probably not a good candidate, are you?

Thanks, Dr. Anonymous1 22:41, November 15, 2012 (UTC)

Contradictory policies Edit

I noticed that T:VS says that blogs and forums may be cited for fan opinions as long as it's alongside more reliable sources such as a reputable magazine, and yet T:NPOV seems to discourage any link to blogs or forums at all and even says to "avoid sentences which try to characterise fan opinion about a topic". If it's not directly contradictory, then it at least needs clearer wording. -- Tybort (talk page) 14:16, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

Writing articles - sourcesEdit

Do we, in any of our policies actually state what can be used to write articles? In my aforementioned rewriting / restructuring of the resources page I've been thinking on this.

T:VS and T:CAN tell us what counts, how it counts and why and how to work out what to use. But do we actually have a list of what exists.

There are the, very infrequently updated Index Lists which need updating or incorporating into the T:Resources page or something.

I know there's the above menu bar with its links off to the various series but, perhaps we just need a page that links to the various overview pages that says "these are all the stories..." or something. --Tangerineduel / talk 14:53, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, bugger. Yes. I did. Sorry to disturb you with this. I even remember all of that conversation. Getting too focused on minor things. --Tangerineduel / talk 15:09, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

The Master in short storiesEdit

Hey. I'm not sure if you're still rewriting the Master page, because it's still locked and I didn't want to get in the way of your work. I'm just writing to point out that the section of the page dealing with the Master's escape from the Eye of Harmony in Prologue and Forgotten is inaccurate. Prologue takes place within the events of Forgotten, and the Master possessing the body of Richard takes place after him being hit by the rolling pin. The story then ends on a cliffhanger as the Master is shown to still be alive.

Moving things about, the paragraph should look like this:

The Master escaped the Doctor's TARDIS through the Eye of Harmony by influencing the dreams of Edward Grainger in order to be freed from the sealed Eye. The Master was now just a being of energy that could travel through the air. (PROSE: Forgotten)

Escaping into London, 1906, the Master possessed the body of George Steer and tried to kill the newly born Edward Grainger to unravel the Doctor's timeline. The Master was stopped by the First Doctor and Violet after being hit with a rolling pin and being removed from the body he possessed. (PROSE: Prologue)

The Master then managed to evade the Eighth Doctor's detection, where he possessed the body of a human native named Richard. (PROSE: Forgotten)

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!
