Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Danniesen

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:

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:

Daleks' Master Plan

Hi! I have temporarily removed your edit from The Impossible Astronaut (TV story) because I would like to know a bit more about the source of your edit. Please tell me which specific episode of The Daleks' Master Plan (TV story) has the First Doctor commenting about Stetsons and having one shot off his head, and if possible I'd like a little more detail about the scene. Thanks. Shambala108 22:05, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

I am not quite sure, I can't find them on the Internet to freely watch anymore. It just seems like everything I hear from everywhere is that the First Doctor has said this or a similar line. And The Impossible Astronaut matches this. But I'm sorry but I can't find it anymore. --DCLM 07:05, September 19, 2014 (UTC)
One of the basic rules of this wiki is that any material in an in-universe article must be properly sourced with a valid source. If you remembered seeing/hearing something like this in one of the episodes, that could be sourced to the episode. But reading other people's comments on the internet is not considered a valid source — it's always best to verify information yourself before adding it in. The internet is wildly unreliable. Having seen the available 3 episodes (more than once) and listened to the audio of the entire story, I am reasonably sure the First Doctor says no such thing. In addition, if he had said it, someone more familiar with the story than us would have surely added that information by now.
In short, it's best to be familiar with the story material when you add information. For now, we won't add it back unless/until someone can verify it. Thanks. Shambala108 14:32, September 19, 2014 (UTC)

Images

Hi! Please read through our image policies, which you can find at Thread:148148. The images you uploaded today, while having the correct license and the correct format, were way too big in width for our wiki's use. You can find all our image guidelines at the thread link I posted. Thanks! Shambala108 16:16, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, hi again... Thanks. That was my bad sorry. --DCLM 16:52, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
I looked through the guidelines and I seem to be unable to find anything about how to control the size of the image. Perhaps it doesn't say so, or maybe I just couldn't find it. --DCLM 16:59, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Forum posts at Thread 164874

Hi! Based on some of your recent posts at Thread:164874, I feel like I have to point you to a couple of our most important policies.

Please take some time to read through Tardis:Spoiler policy. As you can see, we don't allow any spoilers, anywhere (with two exceptions). That includes story titles, which you posted in Thread:164874 and User:Skittles the hog has since removed.

More importantly, please read through Tardis:No personal attacks. It stresses that we want everyone to feel welcome on this wiki. Telling someone to leave may not be considered an actual attack, but it's pretty close. Skittles the Hog has been extremely patient with you in this matter; in the past people have been blocked for similar behavior.

I certainly understand your frustration with the back and forth edits regarding Missy/the Master. Just keep in mind that many new users don't even know the forums exist; pointing them in that direction, whether in edit summaries or posts on their talk pages, is probably the best way to handle things. Thanks for your attention. Shambala108 18:02, November 4, 2014 (UTC)

About the thing with the title I mentioned, yeah I know that there's a no spoiler-policy, and I should have said next episode. Very sorry, my bad. It was a mind-slip that one, I didn't realize I was spoiling, I just wrote a reply and didn't think further about it. Sorry.
And about the thing I said to that user, I'm sorry about that too, I just meant the thread itself as he seemed like he was only going to say that we "denied". Sorry again. --DCLM 19:17, November 4, 2014 (UTC)
But I would like to know what you mean by extremely patient on the matter. I have never (before that on the thread apparently) said something attack-worthy to anyone (not that I remember). --DCLM 19:22, November 4, 2014 (UTC)

Real world

Hi! Please take the time to read through Tardis:In-universe perspective and T:NO RW. Several of your recent edits violate our policies regarding info that comes from the real world and its place in the DWU. To put it in a nutshell, if it's not stated in a story, it doesn't go on the page. Thanks. Shambala108 02:29, December 27, 2014 (UTC)

I did. And I understand now. --DCLM 02:31, December 27, 2014 (UTC)

Facebook

Hi! Please re-write your edits at Facebook into the past tense, as is required for all in universe articles. Thanks. Shambala108 00:26, December 29, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, of course. That was me forgetting it. --DCLM 17:50, December 29, 2014 (UTC)

Re: image size

Hi! In the majority of cases, we don't change the sizes of images that are placed on articles. Shambala108 03:50, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

Oops sorry for the misunderstanding. If you take a look at Help:Photos, it might be able to answer your question. Shambala108 15:33, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

Re: wiki help

Sorry about that. If something similar happens in the future, and it affects all wikis you try, then you'd probably need to post a message on the main wikia help area, and if it only affects this wiki, you can post a message at Board:The Drax Cave. Shambala108 15:06, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

Series 9 page

Hi! Please be careful not to post spoilers in your edit summaries. Please familiarize yourself with Tardis:Spoiler policy. Thanks. Shambala108 05:32, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

Videos

Hi! Please note that, per Tardis:Video policy, only admins are permitted to upload videos to this wiki. If you would like to recommend a video for uploading, you may do so at Tardis:Video recommendations. Thanks. Shambala108 18:37, August 14, 2015 (UTC)

Re: leaked episode

Hi! Leaked information is not allowed anywhere on the wiki. Without giving away any spoilery information, could you give me a couple of details? Specifically, I need to know the episode number or date of airing of the episode leaked. And is the entire episode leaked? Just a portion? Thanks! Shambala108 20:06, August 16, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Moffat's previews

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't really follow the current series so it help to have someone giving me updates.

BTW, if you have something you want to add at Series 9 (Doctor Who) (which I've locked due to the leaks you mentioned), just post it at Howling:The Howling and then drop me a note to head over there and I'll add it to the page. Shambala108 22:17, August 17, 2015 (UTC)

Howling posts

Hi! If possible, when you post something on the Howling for the series 9 page, I'd prefer if you could post your info at the Howling in the exact format you want it on the series 9 page (so that I can just copy and paste), and leave a note in the post where you want the information located (for example, lead, cast/crew, rumors, etc). You have far more experience in editing this page than I do, and you have a clear idea of where you want the information. It would make it easier for me, and would reflect what you want much better. Thanks! Shambala108 18:26, August 19, 2015 (UTC)

Hey, I just wanted to let you know I didn't ignore your post about temporarily un-protecting the series 9 page; I was just trying to decide whether to do it and how it would work. But then today I remembered (stupid me) that I can protect the page against new and unregistered users but allow admins and established users. So you should be able to use it. If you could give it a try and let me know if it works, that would save us both a lot of work. Thanks! Shambala108 20:40, September 15, 2015 (UTC)

Video links

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that, per Tardis:Video policy, we don't allow links to off-site videos. I had to remove the link you posted at Talk:Ohila and Talk:Prologue (webcast), but you can recommend the video be uploaded at Tardis:Video recommendations and then post it on those talk pages once an admin uploads it. Thanks! Shambala108 01:20, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

Page moves

Hi! Please note that, per Thread:128198, only admins are permitted to move pages. See the thread for the reasons and the procedures. Thanks! Shambala108 17:08, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

Re:Questions

Yeah, I understand that any image is from the episode is fine to be used on the wikia, I'm just saying that as this is a twist to make you watch the next episode, it is not the most representative example of the episode and thus is not the image we should use the infobox. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 19:42, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

Why did you revert my edit? The episode was already over when I began editing. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nicodon04 (talk • contribs) .

Plagiarism

Hi! Please don't add material from other websites to this wiki. As stated in Tardis:Plagiarism, we only want original material on this wiki. Thanks! Shambala108 21:44, September 26, 2015 (UTC)

We only want user-created material on the wiki. The synopsis copied from the BBC website does not count. A synopsis, if I recall CzechOut's definition correctly, is about three sentences summing up what the episode is about. But it has to be original material. Thanks! Shambala108 22:00, September 26, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Ponding

It's pretty straightforward: only stories count. We don't even allow RTD's comments about Rose and Ten, or the identity of The Woman, the Jack/Face of Boe situation, etc. And he was the storyrunner of the show. Gillan's comments are just her opinion, and even if Moffat agreed with her, the only way we would include it is if it was mentioned in a story. Hope this helps! Shambala108 23:16, September 30, 2015 (UTC)

Claims

It's a basic tenet of fiction that people can say things which aren't true. It doesn't matter whether it might be true, there is the possibility that it isn't. Claim is the proper word to use on this wiki, and when formally quoting someone in speech anywhere. I feel that you misunderstand the word, not me. If we could speculate that everything the Doctor says was true, then we would be going against everything this wiki stands for. RogerAckroydLives 10:59, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

One can lie to oneself as easily as one can to anyone else. He is making a reference, whether to a real event or a fiction is unknown. RogerAckroydLives 11:11, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

Re: admin help

Hi! I will look into it a bit later when I have more free time later today. Thanks! Shambala108 14:19, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

Re: use of "claim"

(Please note that I am leaving the same message at both User talk:Danniesen and User talk:RogerAckroydLives, just to save myself a bit of work.)

Looking over the messages on your talk pages, I think I have to side with Danniesen on this one. While the use of the word "claim" may be grammatically correct, it does have a connotation that the person doing the claiming may not be telling the truth. If you look at Tardis:Neutral point of view, you'll see that we try not to make value judgments about characters and their actions (we don't even call the Master or the Daleks "evil" unless we're attributing it to the Doctor or someone else). Therefore, to preserve an air of neutrality, I suggest the words "said" or "stated" as alternatives. Or in the specific example mentioned, that of Shirley Bassey, you could put in the references section something like "The Doctor mentioned Shirley Bassey", link to Bassey, and when the article is created a neutral explanation of the mention could be given. Hope this helps sort the issue out. Shambala108 23:40, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

Apology

No worries at all. I'm sure I've made similar such mistakes that other users have been at pains to fix. Hopefully we can leave this all behind us and continue to edit together to help strengthen this wiki.

Best wishes, RogerAckroydLives 08:31, October 12, 2015 (UTC)

Another Apology

Danniesen, I am sorry for creating the LEGO Dimensions pages. I did not know there was a discussion about it. I will keep that in mind. :) CybermanFan 17:58, October 17, 2015 (UTC)CybermanFanCybermanFan 17:58, October 17, 2015 (UTC)

T:OFF REL

For future reference, the rule is actually that we wait for the top or bottom of the hour, so the creation of the article for The Girl Who Died was allowed.  Digifiend  Talk  PR/SS  KR  MH  Toku  JD  Garo  TH  CG  UM  Logos  CLG  DW  21:01, 17/10/2015 

If the admins are saying always top, then no offence to them, but they need to review their own rules. T:OFF REL clearly says "you should wait, out of an abundance of caution, until the top or bottom of the hour after the end credits roll" and "The latest episode of Doctor Who is set to end its first BBC One airing at 1915. You cannot start editing the article about that episode until the bottom of the hour, or 1930." If they want it to always be top of the hour they'll need to rewrite that part of the page.  Digifiend  Talk  PR/SS  KR  MH  Toku  JD  Garo  TH  CG  UM  Logos  CLG  DW  21:15, 17/10/2015 
To be clear, the policy is that we wait until an episode has finished airing entirely, then for safety's sake we wait until the nearest top or bottom of the hour after the episode is finished airing. I have said "top" in the past, but if I recall correctly, it was only for The Magician's Apprentice. As an American, I usually have no idea what time the show starts/finishes, and then I have to do the math to convert to my time zone. It's easier to say top of hour in the one (or two) case that I used that phrase. Sorry for the confusion. Shambala108 23:50, October 17, 2015 (UTC)
I think the best way to explain would be to use a hypothetical example: say an episode starts at 4:30pm, lasts about 40 minutes and ends at 5:10. Then you could start to create/edit at 5:30 instead of having to wait until 6:00. If that makes sense then I might add that to the policy page to make it more clear. (FWIW, I can't think of any show I watch on American TV that has different start times from week to week, which makes this show particularly difficult to figure out.) Shambala108 00:01, October 18, 2015 (UTC)

Quotation marks

The quotation marks show up in the lead, and there is a template that can show the title of an article with quotation marks, but we don't usually create character pages with the quote marks as part of the name. Try searching "The Doctor" and you'll see it won't take you to The Doctor. Shambala108 00:24, October 18, 2015 (UTC)

the quantum shade is NOT "they"

They is a completely different force. the quantum shade is just a tool used to kill people. "they" is the thing that put ashildir up to all this. i made the mistake of thinking the shade is "they" but please see sense All Hail Aslan 17:52, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

Hey; just in response to your comments at User talk:NarnianAslan1: you cannot simultaneously claim "you need to speak to me properly", then adopt such a disproportionately antagonistic tone. Nothing in the preceding post is offensive, and to suggest he was trying to ridicule you is, quite frankly, bizarre. The tone is, to my mind, amiable - I mean, come on, the guy said please.--Skittles the hog - talk 20:34, November 22, 2015 (UTC)
I didn't. I summed up what he did on the page, andhe actually did speak in less than nice tone in the end. Your focus is on that one word only, but I look at the whole "see sense"-thing. Not a very nice thing to say actually. I mean, would you like that I told you "please do see sense, because what I say makes sense, yours doesn't"? Using the word "please" doesn't always make up for saying a less nice thing to a person. --DCLM 21:25, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

Obviously I don't think saying please negates any wrong doing, and I don't imagine for a second that that is your reading of my post. I see the phrase as a whole and it's not offensive. As to your question, I personally wouldn't be give a damn if someone asked me to see sense. It's an appeal, not an insult. The version you post - "because what I say makes sense, yours doesn't" - is a cynical extrapolation. That's not what he said. There is no malicious intent in his post, where yours is palpably hostile. I don't want to blow this out of proportion. I'm merely suggesting you adopt a less harsh tone, especially when it is so unnecessary. Take that how you will.--Skittles the hog - talk 21:47, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

Well... Obviously it wasn't his intent to offend, and I'm not saying for a moment that it was, but I just felt it was some kind of attack. Even if it wasn't. --DCLM 21:57, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

The General Talk Page Apology

I didn't intentionally delete your comment. In fact, when I first started typing my response, yours wasn't there yet. My guess is that some kind of glitch occurred that deleted your comment when I put in mine. This has happened to me on other pages, with instances that either completely screwed up a page or deleting portions of it. Regardless, it was still in my edit that this occurred, so I apologize anyway for it. --DarkXaven 21:18, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

Series 10 and Cultbox

Hi. I just cleaned out the Series 10 (Doctor Who) page, and as you are a major contributor to that article, I thought I should explain why I removed what I did. Most of it hinges on T:RW SRC, which I highly suggest you read; it's not very long. Basically, Cultbox is not a source we can use. Having looked through their articles, they are mainly either a rewrite of information from an official source like the BBC, or based on dubious tweets of filming photos or the like. In the former situation, we should just cite the original source, and in the latter, we shouldn't include the information at all as it's unverifiable. P&P talk contribs 18:37, August 14, 2016 (UTC)

Encyclopedic

Yeah, I probably should have linked to a policy on that one. I'm speaking mostly to Tardis:In-universe perspective, specifically:

  1. Use past tense for in-universe portions of articles
  2. Write from the perspective of a neutral observer who has access to all known facts about your topic. You, the writer of the article, are omniscient, even though the subject of your article is not.

Regarding the first, instead of saying, "The TARDIS arrives", say "The TARDIS arrived." Regarding the second, the article read like a plot summary and didn't even mention its subject, the goodbye party. Articles should be focused on their subjects, and state the facts as we know them clearly. You don't have to say the Doctor gave Ohila a "golden disk", because we know that it's the confession dial. Also, there was way, way too much detail that was irrelevant to the actual subject: the goodbye party.

Finally, articles should never start with "once upon a time". Tardis:Leads has more on the beginning sections of articles.

One last tip: when you're starting an article from scratch, it's good to have a template to work off. Farewell tour is pretty similar and a good example of in-universe writing style, if a bit wordy. P&P talk contribs 16:57, September 10, 2016 (UTC)

Class (series 1) page

Why did you undo my edit on the Series 1 (Class) page? It had a trustable source (which was cited right after the information). OncomingStorm12th 18:13, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

Where does the info that http://www.doctorwho.tv/ is not an valid source? At Tardis:Valid sources, the only site whose title was close to doctorwho.tv I could find was http://www.doctorwhonews.net/ (a completly different site). I agree DWnews is not a valid source, but given DW.tv is a BBC-licensed (and edited by them as well) there is no reason to discredit it. The preceding unsigned comment was added by OncomingStorm12th (talk • contribs) .
The thing is, were still talking about two different websites. You're talking about http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/, a fan site. I'm talking about http://www.doctorwho.tv/, a BBC Worldwide site. Check the links and you see the're not the same site (despite the similar url) OncomingStorm12th 19:09, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
Well, User:Shambala108 (him/her)self edited the info I added and the only changes made was removing the links. Therefore, I'd assume it quite fites there. Additionally, links to which stories take places during which season are left. For example: The Blood Cell isn't an TV episode, but still, it is linked on the Series 8 (Doctor Who) page. For now, I believe it's better to leave it there as it is, given the books are meant to be set right after the season. OncomingStorm12th 19:26, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

Doctorwho.tv

Just a quick note: doctorwho.tv is from the BBC, doctorwhotv.co.uk is a fan site. P&P talk contribs 19:10, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

Oops, looks like somebody else got there first. :) P&P talk contribs 19:11, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
Just checked. Seems like I got them mixed up as being the same one. Thanks. :) --DCLM 19:15, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

Page moves 2

Hi! Please remember, as I stated above, that only admins are permitted to move pages. Thanks. Shambala108 00:30, October 17, 2016 (UTC)

As User:CzechOut is the author of the thread and the most technically-able admin on the wiki, you might want to bring it up with him. Thanks! Shambala108 00:00, October 24, 2016 (UTC)

broadcast

To answer your question, I know when things broadcast in the UK because I know what broadcast means in English [1]. Programs are not broadcast on iPlayer: they are streamed or made available for download. Programs are broadcast on TV. As I already explained there, my statement meant that the episode is only broadcast, or aired, or shown on TV in the evening. I was asking for a confirmation that it has already been made available for streaming/download. I thanked you for confirming that. And I thank you now for suggesting a way to check the streaming availability times for iPlayer from outside the UK. I was not aware of this and did not try as BBC took special measures to repel people from outside the UK recently. But there is no point polluting that page with this discussion. It's off topic there. Amorkuz 13:05, October 29, 2016 (UTC)

I know what "broadcast" means too, and I did of course mean "streaming". Thank you for pointing that out. I didn't mean to make it seem that I didn't know it. I do. Sorry, if it confused you. And you are welcome. No, I know that discussion was irrelevant on that page. :) --DCLM 13:16, October 29, 2016 (UTC)

Apologies

Hey, I have to apologize for accidentally blocking you earlier. I was trying to block someone else, whose talk page you had left a message on, and I clicked on your name by mistake. I realized my mistake pretty quickly and unblocked you, so hopefully it didn't even affect you. Sorry for my mistake. Shambala108 23:42, November 11, 2016 (UTC)

The Metaphysical Edit Conflict

Ah, so it was just an edit conflict. Always best to check what's been changed before hitting send again when it tells you the page has been edited.
× SOTO (//) 00:31, November 28, 2016 (UTC)

Actually, still a teeny bit confused about what happened. But far more importantly: you keep on accidentally removing all the categories. Now sure why, or how, but you should be aware.
× SOTO (//) 00:33, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
Honestly, I don't know how the categories went kaput, but they seem to have done so twice on that page, both on your edits. My only theory is that you encountered an edit conflict, and copied over your own text from the bottom, without realising the categories weren't still in the little box on the right, at the top. Does that happen? I know the opposite does.

S10 episode titles source

The source given is the latest DWM, DWM 511. Just because no one has made a page for it yet doesn't mean it "doesn't exist". NateBumber 16:52, April 5, 2017 (UTC)

Here's a pic. NateBumber 16:55, April 5, 2017 (UTC)
High, sorry to interject, but knowing rules is important for me. I am not aware of the rule prohibiting to use an otherwise valid source just because it hasn't been wikified yet. I would appreciate a link to this rule as a confirmation. Such a rule would be rather harmful, which makes me doubt its existence. Such a rule would simply create an additional barrier for adding information to the Wiki, while simultaneously providing no benefit to the verifiability of information. If the page exists, it does not mean that the necessary information is present on it. So a third party is in exactly the same position verification-wise whether the page exists or not. Anyway, I'd appreciate a confirmation of this rule. Amorkuz 17:55, April 5, 2017 (UTC)
I agree with Dan's decision to remove the information. I undid his edit once as I was sure that the info had sources in place, however I later discovered that they did not. Xx-connor-xX 18:15, April 5, 2017 (UTC)
I second Amorkuz's objection: there shouldn't be anything wrong with citing a redlink. It would be pointlessly exclusionary if we didn't allow stories or sources to be cited on this wiki until pages were created for them. As it happens, I'm not going to make a page for DWM 511, but I don't think that should mean that our page on series 10 shouldn't have the most up-to-date information. (As for citing the picture ... that'd set terrible precedent, with all the nonsense rumors floating around in twitter pictures.) If there is a rule specifying this, I'll take it all back, but until then, I don't think this should even be a consideration. NateBumber 18:42, April 5, 2017 (UTC)
But doesn't it violate "Assume good faith" principle from T:NPA? Danniesen stated himself that he knew the magazine did exist at the time of posting. There are plenty of red links on this wiki, even for things published long ago. Shouldn't we assume in good faith, when somebody posts about a source that would definitely get a page sooner or later that they own the source at hand and post valuable information from it? I myself enjoy very much posting a scoop, i.e., being the first to find out and post information. In many cases, such information is more important than anything that would be eventually added to the page of the source. So there is no point in making the page for the source first. Plus, there are so many red links on this wiki, take 3D 1, for instance. Should we delete everything on COMIC: The Heralds of Destruction because nobody made pages for the comic issues they were printed in? Amorkuz 18:57, April 5, 2017 (UTC)

The Saviour of Time

Hey :) Thanks for your recent edits surrounding this (nominal) game, but please remember that it is not a valid source. In general, this means that content about it should be placed on the page The Saviour of Time (video game) in the references section, rather than having pages created about it. (Occasionally, we do allow some pages about characters from invalid sources, if they're particularly noteworthy -- but we don't generally allow pages on relatively minor objects or concepts, such as the page you created about emergency mode.)

Also, content from the game about, say, Mercury absolutely shouldn't be on the page Mercury. Or Twelfth Doctor on Twelfth Doctor. Or Bill on Bill Potts.

Thanks!

A request

Hi. Can you please email me at defiantmemoryalpha@yahoo.com? Thanks --Time Lord 13:21, May 10, 2017 (UTC)

I'm gonna need a reason. Thanks. :) --DCLM 13:24, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Obviously, the reason will become apparent once I receive your email. --Time Lord 15:23, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, but what can be too secret to tell me here? --DCLM 15:35, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
You'll find out. --Time Lord 15:37, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Can't you just tell me here? --DCLM 15:40, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Not really. Sorry --Time Lord 15:52, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
How can I know you're not just sending me some virus or something? --DCLM 16:01, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
What sort of question is that?! Can you please just send me an email? --Time Lord 16:20, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
lol NateBumber 16:31, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
It's a perfectly relevant question. Why? --DCLM 16:36, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm not lolling at you, I'm lolling at this whole situation. Pretty funny in how weird it is. NateBumber 16:44, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
It wasn't aimed at you, though. :D --DCLM 16:46, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Ahh, I'm dumb. Well, for what it's worth, I emailed Time Lord for shits and giggles, and I can confirm there's no viruses involved. NateBumber 17:03, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Hmm... well, I'm not one to joke over emails. :P I prefer to do it more directly like a chatroom, or Twitter or, you know, face-to-face. --DCLM 17:12, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
What we're discussing is entirely serious, and is about benefiting this wiki. --Time Lord 17:27, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
Okay. --DCLM 18:00, May 10, 2017 (UTC)

Korean spam

Good on you for being friendly. Unfortunately, this was spam delivered daily at about the same time. If next time you see it before me and if you want to do something about it (you don't have to), just ping me please on the talk page so that I get a notification. I'll deal with it. Amorkuz 11:08, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks. --DCLM 13:21, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Gagarin

To give you a little more context. What is shown in-universe is a photo of an astronaut without any context. Is he American or Soviet? Is it the first space flight or the tenth? Is it a man or a woman? Maybe the last question can be answered if one squints really hard. I honestly cannot tell. With Neil Armstrong shown during the broadcast, the narration provides a way to identify him. These are just images. Unless you find the word Gagarin written across his chest (in the alphabet of your choosing) or some sort of indication that this is the first manned space flight, no, Gagarin did not appear in-universe in this story. Some arbitrary guy in a space suit did.

I'd appreciate it if you put the figure back into the BTS, by the way. Amorkuz 19:52, June 8, 2017 (UTC)

Einstein (and same for Edison)

Well, as you can see, there are several images of Einstein existing in-universe on Albert Einstein. Maybe you can find a portrait that is reasonably close to the actual photograph used in the episode. Or maybe some story mentions the formula E=MC2, which is visible in the episode. Then you can connect the dots, be proud of your find and write the text in a way that clearly explains where you get your information from. But look again at the Albert Einstein page. Tell me where 1905 came from for the formula. Is it really from the episode or is it a violation of T:NO RW? Amorkuz 20:14, June 8, 2017 (UTC)

And that is the danger of bringing our knowledge. Please remember that we are never sure what happened in DWU the "right way" (as in real life) and what went differently. The Prime Minister in The Green Death turns out to be Jeremy Thorpe as a crew's prank on his inelectability. Any of the historic figures can turn out to be this or that Time Lord, or not to exist at all, or have met the Doctor and be replaced by a robot, or ... It is because of this we need to be careful about dates, and names, and, yes, faces. In particular, the status of Donald Trump is especially unclear given the president in the Shadow World. Amorkuz 21:00, June 8, 2017 (UTC)

Links

Hi. Erm, did you add those hyperlinks behind in the Type 70 page? If so, thank you.

I'd like to know how you did it, I have plans to add more pages to the wiki, and having connections would be a benefit. Thank you. The preceding unsigned comment was added by [[User:User:Saint2|User:Saint2]] ([[User talk:User:Saint2|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/User:Saint2|contribs]]) .

You just need to add links to the pages. Simply adding these: [[ ]] --DCLM 14:52, June 25, 2017 (UTC)

You mean I have to leave thos [[ symbols behind and the hyperlink would be created? How? Sorry for the trouble. The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Saint2 (talk • contribs) .

I suggest reading Tardis:Editing. --DCLM 15:00, June 25, 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, I found the page. Managed to set up a single link, so thanks. By the way what other changes did you recommend for the Type 60 page?

Also how do you change the header - I saw that part of the cleanup bar. The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Saint2 (talk • contribs) .

All right. All right. I was just trying to contribute. The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Saint2 (talk • contribs) .

We are more than happy with contributors. All we are asking is that you read the guidelines and policies of the Wikia, that will help you getting better at editing articles and learning what is and isn't allowed on the Wikia. And also that you sign your comments on talk pages, using the four tildes. --DCLM 15:20, June 25, 2017 (UTC)

Question

Can you explain this revision of yours?[Template fetch failed for https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Template:papi?action=raw] 13:25, August 25, 2017 (UTC)

Simple. We have a certain way of doing things on the Wikia. --DCLM 13:28, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
Okay. Can you give me the link to the style guide section which explains this? Thanks.[Template fetch failed for https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Template:papi?action=raw] 13:30, August 25, 2017 (UTC)
At least it used to be like that some time ago. Perhaps something has been changed. I remember that the Series pages listed Capaldi as Twelfth Doctor, whereas the episodes listed him as The Doctor. --DCLM 13:35, August 25, 2017 (UTC)

Re:vandalism

Hi! I first want to point out how much I appreciate your concern for the wiki. I can definitely understand the point of view of someone who sees what appears to be vandalism and is not able to do something about it.

However, it goes against Tardis:No personal attacks for a non-admin to call another user's posts vandalism or to threaten another user who is thought to have committed vandalism.

If you think you see vandalism on the wiki, notify any active admin. More importantly, if you think someone is using more than one user name or more than one IP address, please notify User:CzechOut. He is the one who keeps track of posters using more than one ID.

One last note: IP (unregistered) users don't get any kind of notification when someone posts on their talk pages. In addition, someone who intentionally vandalizes the wiki won't care if you leave a message on their talk page. So it's not really worth your time to post on someone's talk page if you suspect vandalism.

Thanks for your concern, and for your hard work on the wiki, Shambala108 02:44, September 10, 2017 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. And you're welcome. --DCLM 10:40, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
I'd like to add my thanks to Shambala108's for your dedication to the upkeep of the wiki.
Since this is an interest of yours, lemme send a couple of "best practices" your way.
First, be aware that a lot of bad actors love it when you call them "vandals" or their work "vandalism". That's a reward to them. So in the spirit of not feeding the trolls, avoid using that word. If you can't figure out a way to describe the activity on this wiki without using that word, I would encourage you to go to a disused wiki on the FANDOM network, and send me or any admin a message there -- on either our talk page or Message Wall. That way, there is no obvious connection between the bad behavior and this wiki.
Second, please don't claim with confidence that one user is another user. You just don't know that. They may well seem to have the same editing patterns, but you don't have the tools necessary to say, "User A is clearly the same as User B". Logically, with the massive number of IPs, the chances are that two different IPs are not the same person. So that's the presumption, and it's only with greater investigation that we can prove that presumption false. If you moderate your language to something like, "I suspect that these two users are the same," you'll avoid embarrassing problems that can come as the result of misidentification. And, yes, as Shambala108 said, on this wiki I'm the only one with the tools to make such an identification. So, again, if you see what you think/believe/suspect to be an identification issue, please contact me on another wiki. And you don't have to link back to Tardis to demonstrate the user. This works anywhere on the network:
[[User:2A02:C7F:3A2B:3B00:1886:B3A0:7626:B741]]
Also, note that I will take action on your request, but I'm unlikely to comment upon it. The most I might tell you is that I have investigated the claim. Please don't feel that you've been ignored.
Finally, if you see an emergent situation -- one in which a lot of bad action is happening at a rapid rate -- don't even bother with me or another admin. Instead, please proceed to the VSTF wiki and post a report there. You don't have to be an admin at a wiki to post there. The VSTF do not handle user identification requests; for those you still need me. This is only for those cases where you see rapid, multiple, non-sensical changes to articles.

Series 11 info

Heya :) I just happened to be on Amorkuz' talk page for another matter and noticed your query about how to deal with the page now that it's locked. When a page is locked, that means you have to get admin approval to add content to the page. So, just add that info, along with its source, to the talk page in its own section. Then, ask an admin to take a look. If we think it's appropriate for the page, we'll then add it for you.
czechout@fandom    16:55: Sat 30 Jun 2018

Ahhh, sorry. I didn't realise quite the sort of change you were proposing. Yep, spoilers should be avoided on the talk page. Instead. put it in a new thread at The Howling under a generic name like Howling:Possible additions to the Series 11 page, and then ask an admin on their talk page to decide whether the info belongs on the Series 11 page. Of course, an admin would be under no obligation to check out the link, but putting it in the Howling namespace gives them the option to then decide whether they want to see the spoiler.
To be clear, though, if this were virtually any other page that were locked down — say, for instance, that the Rose Tyler page suddenly came under attack — the procedure would be to use the talk page to propose changes.

Re: Whittaker

Hi, I'm not really sure what you're asking. If you want to put some information from the article on the actor's page (including a limited amount of quotes), and source the article, that's fine. Shambala108 14:15, September 25, 2018 (UTC)

Creating pages

Could you please get in the habit of always including categories when you create pages? Please also try not to forget including {{NameSort}} and {{real world}}, where applicable, and remember that {{reflist}} belongs in a "Footnotes" section, not "External links". Just responding to what I'm seeing today, not necessarily your overall editing patterns. Thank you.

forum posts

Hi, since you are not an admin, it is not your job to define personal attacks (unless they are aimed at you), nor is it your job to define the validity of another user's forum posts. See Tardis:No personal attacks. Thanks, Shambala108 14:33, January 10, 2019 (UTC)

With all due respect to a fellow admin, Shambala108 you are being unfair to Danniesen. If you reprimand me for taking a hard line towards a user who uses "raging insanity" towards a user or the whole wiki, if you, therefore, condone this language, you must allow other users to freely express their opinion on the matter. This is exactly the problem with personal attacks: if they are not prevented by us admin, other users might feel compelled to fight for what they feel is right. The only reason I did not block that user was to avoid even the appearance of bias. To be honest, I did expect you to ban them to avoid such appearance too. At this point, I am forced to ask if you are hereby giving a permission for other users to refer to your actions as "raging insanity", if you really do not believe this to be a personal attack?

Disney Time 1975, Again

Back from my exile, I find that despite your kind interceding on the talk page, Disney Time 1975 (TV story) ended up summarily deleted at some point, with not even a closing message on the talk page discussion. I still disagree wildly, and have brought it to the Forums; I should be honored if you would once again join me in that little crusade. --Scrooge MacDuck 19:50, May 23, 2019 (UTC)

Hi please read through Tardis:"Real world" versus "from the real world" thanks Shambala108 14:06, May 25, 2019 (UTC)

Okay. Will do. Thanks for correcting my errors too. --DCLM 14:08, May 25, 2019 (UTC)

RE: Rumours section

Because it hasn't officially been announced, and their work on the game (whereas they previously had no connection to the DWU) validates the rumour. Also, just a quick reminder to be careful not to leave any spoilers outside of spoiler-designated pages like series 12.

Re: The Runaway

Hi, apologies for not getting back to you sooner; I thought I had already answered your question. The thing is, it's been established that we do not cover invalid stories with the depth that we do valid stories. Since The Runaway is invalid, there are some things connected with that story that won't get pages. The page I deleted has very little relevance to DW. However, you can put this information on the video game's page, just don't create a page for it. Thanks Shambala108 22:26, May 29, 2019 (UTC)

The Specials

Hey - just a note to say I've reverted your edit to List of BBC Blu-ray releases. To keep the list tidy, we haven't listed Steelbooks as separate releases within the tables, as most of the Blu-rays have had more than one release (plastic case and Steelbook usually). Instead, we've been putting a one-liner prose in the section where the original release exists (in this case, List of BBC Blu-ray releases#2010).

I also believe that the page The Specials (TV stories) that you've created is unnecessary. Looking at both Category:DVD box sets and Category:Blu-ray box sets, pages only exist for anthology box sets, or box sets that span more than one season. Information about season box sets (The Specials are part of Series 4 for wiki purposes) tend to be put in as a section on the "Home media" section of the relevant series article. Indeed, the Series 4 Steelbook is already mentioned here. I would suggest you move the relevant information (e.g. such as who did the artwork) to that article instead.     ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (talk page)  22:26, 3 July 2019

Block request

Hi I have temporarily locked the Series 12 page for a week. Hopefully that lets everything calm down. I've left a message on the talk page explaining how we do things here for the new users.

If the second user is indeed a sock puppet, please ask User:CzechOut to look into it. I don't have the capability of determining that kind of thing. However, since neither user has been blocked, they aren't actually violating any policy by using two accounts.

I'm not blocking the new user(s), partly because they aren't actually vandalizing the place, they're just unfamiliar with our rules. And I don't block people anymore, I leave that up to the admins with less experience than me. Thanks Shambala108 15:44, August 11, 2019 (UTC)

Cool. Zanda21 15:51, August 11, 2019 (UTC)

Hi, can you please just trust the admins to do our jobs? I don't block people anymore, but a blatant violation of Tardis:No personal attacks is one exception. I've already blocked the user. And please keep in mind that there are sometimes long periods of time when no admins are online, and we will take care of things when we are. Thanks Shambala108 16:25, August 11, 2019 (UTC)

Forum posts

Hi, I need to correct an issue with some of your forum posts.

Sometimes when you post, you don't get an answer when you apparently expect to, so you will post something like you did at Thread:260129, asking "Anyone??". This post was only four hours after your previous post.

Please keep in mind that people have real lives, and also, some of us are in different time zones. There is no reason to get impatient when you haven't had a response in less than a week. If people are interested in your post, they will respond to it. A post only needs bumping if there's been a significant amount of time since anyone has posted (and by significant I mean several months).

For your video question, I suggest you ask User:CzechOut or User:SOTO, they usually do the video checking and uploading.

Thanks! Shambala108 00:03, October 25, 2019 (UTC)

Article talk pages

Hi, I am responding to your edits on my talk. Nobody had responded to my edit in particular, so I did not understand it would be a problem to edit what I had posted. I was unaware that the mod meant responded to the whole page in general. Please restore my edits as I was unaware and I will be sure to follow the policy in future. Thanks. (I apologize, I didn't sign my name when I sent this earlier.)Gingergallifreyan125 08:31, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I thought I was using the correct format to respond to an edit by putting another colon to show I was replying to the above message, especially because the message was addressed to me. Thanks,--Gingergallifreyan125 12:59, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

Hi, is there a page I can look at so I may become more familiar with the edits so I don't keep making mistakes rather than you editing my edits? It makes it hard to feel like I'm contributing.--Gingergallifreyan125 13:06, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

Please refrain in the future from deleting message of others on talk pages, even if their edits go against admin instruction. Please leave this for admin to take care of. Amorkuz 13:49, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks and apology

Hi, first off, sorry I was not quick enough to respond. Fortunately, there are enough of us admin around at any given point in time. Since my colleague dealt with this situation admirably, there is no need for me to do anything at this point. I am writing this message primarily to say that, when notified, I will continue dealing with vandalism and edit wars at the first opportunity. Thank you for alerting me (and more widely the admin team) to the situation. Amorkuz 08:03, November 4, 2019 (UTC)
