Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Dark Lord Xander

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

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

British English, please

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

Spoilers aren't cool

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

Other useful stuff

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

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

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

Whoo! Audio Help!Edit

Hey, just wanted to give a shout out to say it's nice to have a hand in maintaining the audio pages. Look forward to working with ya in the future. --Colleyd 03:15, 28 June 2008 (UTC) Woof.

You've done pretty good so far. I like the formatting on the main listing page. I think one of the things we might wanna focus on at the time being should be making sure all the pages have at least a basic cast listing, as well as the proper Usage tag on each cd cover image. :) --Colleyd 21:43, 28 June 2008 (UTC)Woof.
A project list page could be a good idea. We would probably need to tag it with a Maintenance tag of some sort, if one of us makes one. Though at the rate you've been editing, it might not be needed soon! :) --Colleyd 17:22, 1 July 2008 (UTC)Woof.


Just thought I'd put in a word of praise to both of you. Great work (especially putting the copyright tags on all those images), you've both Dark Lord Xander and Colleyd been doing a lot of stuff that's been on my 'to do list'...but haven't actually done for a while now. --Tangerineduel 17:44, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Just a questionEdit

Shouldn't on the BBV pages (great job, another thing that's been on my to do list...well maybe)...anyways, shouldn't in the series bit in the infobox, shouldn't it read Bill & Ben Video - The Stranger. Rather than the other way around, Main series it belongs to first then specifics (as it is on all the other pages)? Thanks. --Tangerineduel 08:20, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: Project PageEdit

I'll see what I can work up. Will try to have one by either tonight or tomarrow. :) --Colleyd 16:22, 9 July 2008 (UTC)Woof.

BFA To-do List -BEHOLD! --Colleyd 23:39, 9 July 2008 (UTC)Woof.

Christmas 08Edit

I'm not sure if you deleted the article, but it was a good call, I think. I was made skeptical by the listing of one of the humored "heir presumptives" as "The other Doctor" in the cast list that I deleted, and I check Outpost Gallifrey regularly and they'd post it if it were announced. I agree, I think the title will probably be announced as part of the Proms Special mini-episode. 23skidoo 16:36, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Welcome notesEdit

Hi, if you're going to add welcome notes to people's talk pages just use the template instead of copying all the wikitext it goes {{Welcome|(User's name)|(Siganture)}}. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 13:21, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Stubs Edit

I guessed as much, and I didn't try to go crazy, I just went with my gut. Sorry if I made a mess -- AnimeNoKyouran 07:58, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Heh. I think it's a bit out of hand already... -- AnimeNoKyouran 08:06, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Vadal Edit


No wonder people do it. -- 10:09, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

The general known consensus among...well everything gives the prefix for the Virgin Missing Adventures as PROSE and PROSE for the Virgin New Adventures. It seems a little odd to create another. (Especially when MA has been used both in press like DWM and in other web publications). --Tangerineduel 12:58, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

That's fine. There's a list of abbreviations at Tardis:List of prefixes (it's also top of the list in the Category:Abbreviations category). It's got (I think) all the abbreviations used for this wiki on the list of prefixes page. (Also useful to prior to creating pages check out the 'What links here' link). --Tangerineduel 13:07, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: About Template Edit

Sorry, I couldn't find any other template for disambiguating articles with simmilar names (ie The Rani and Rani Chandra). Wasn't sure exactly how that's done here; is there another template? Or would you just put the whole formatting in the article? - Khlieeq 08:40, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. Wasn't sure before, although should the disambiguation page be created on "Rani" (which currently redirects to "The Rani") , or a new page — "Rani (disambiguation)"? -Khlieeq 09:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I took the assumption that it should be just "Rani" as the disambiguation, as per Cyberman and Martha. -Khlieeq 09:10, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Adminship, Absent and NominationsEdit

I didn't want to bring this up on the forum, but I can't help but see a link between your recent nomination for adminship and the 'Absent Admin' forum post. Just curious. --Tangerineduel 17:22, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Fannon Edit

I apologies for the "vandalism"; do you know of a place where Doctor Who Fannon can be placed freely? I'd appreciate your help.

-- 16:52, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

BF project Edit

I am happy to lend a hand even though I am unable to get my hands on any BF audio stuff due to where I live. I may order some of :) --Skittles the hog 19:39, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Userpage Code Edit

Also wanted to say your very clever at using that wiki code, I dont understand it so I hope you dont mind that I borrowed the basic code for you to do list. Sorry--Skittles the hog 19:44, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Featured article Edit

Cheers, you seem to have just suddenly appeared on this wiki and become a part of everything lol.--Skittles the hog 14:57, 25 July 2008 (UTC)


I'll put it on my to-do list, certainly. It might take me awhile as I'm entering into a fairly busy week. 23skidoo 06:54, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Signing Edit

It WAS my brother using my account. Im not a cheat.--Skittles the hog 13:31, 26 July 2008 (UTC) Ive resinged it for him, also the sontaran gallery was created by me and is a good feature on the page and is not messy.--Skittles the hog 13:34, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

I was jus telling you how you were wrong. You are entitled to your opinion.--Skittles the hog 17:36, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Its ok, you know now that it will be him sighning if i put his name so he maze well use my account.--Skittles the hog 12:06, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

SJA Names Edit

Thanks for the note. Jack's the man - 21:16, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

"Going overboard" Edit

All I'm doing by flagging these battle/event pages is to try to create debate. Logic demands that if the page for the battle in Revelation now has wide support for deletetion, many of the rest need to be culled as well. As for them being "vital" to the wiki, a quick look at their "What links here" pages puts paid to that argument. Most are basically stale pages, just like the Skirmish at Tranquil Repose page. I mean, c'mon, "Battle on the Dalek Saucer"? What the heck is that? CzechOut | 17:17, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

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!
