Thanks for your edits! We hope you'll keep on editing with us. This is a great time to have joined us, because now you can play the Game of Rassilon with us and win cool stuff! Well, okay, badges. That have no monetary value. And that largely only you can see. But still: they're cool!
We've got a couple of important quirks for a Wikia wiki, so let's get them out of the way first.
British English, please
We generally use British English round these parts, so if you're American, please be sure you set your spell checker to BrEng, and take a gander at our spelling cheat card.
Spoilers aren't cool
We have a strict definition of "spoiler" that you may find a bit unusual. Basically, a spoiler, to us, is anything that comes from a story which has not been released yet. So, even if you've got some info from a BBC press release or official trailer, it basically can't be referenced here. In other words, you gotta wait until the episode has finished its premiere broadcast to start editing about its contents. Please check the spoiler policy for more details.
Other useful stuff
Aside from those two things, we also have some pages that you should probably read when you get a chance, like:
- the listing of all our help, policy and guideline pages
- our Manual of Style
- our image use policy
- our user page policy
- a list of people whose job it is to help you
If you're brand new to wiki editing — and we all were, once! — you probably want to check out these tutorials at Wikipedia, the world's largest wiki:
Thanks for becoming a member of the TARDIS crew! If you have any questions, see the Help pages, add a question to one of the Forums or ask on my talk page. Tangerineduel ☎ 08:07, August 26, 2014 (UTC)
Hi! I see you've been uploading BF credits for our ongoing project, and as one of the people involved I am extremely glad to see it. However, some admins who aren't as aware of the project might delete your images on the grounds that they are too big. When you upload images in the future, even for this project, please make sure they are less than 100 kb or they could be deleted. Thanks for your contribution to this project!

I see you've been doing pages on Project: Longinus. Does that mean you have a copy of it?! If so, can you send it to me? Cavan Scott told me he thought it was gone forever. Also, can I have Imaginary Boys? Fwhiffahder ☎ 16:59, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
- This is me, commenting again. Tiny bit pushy? Sure. But I'd really like Imaginary Boys and (if possible) Project: Longinus. I've been after them for a while already. Fwhiffahder ☎ 14:28, December 22, 2016 (UTC)
Hey! If you would like to replace an image on a page, please upload a new image instead of replacing the file with something completely differnet, like you did at File:Patricia Menzies.jpg. Thanks! P&P talk contribs 04:08, January 11, 2017 (UTC)
Hi, now that we intersected on a thread, could I ask to change your username to something others can read? Or at the very least, include some understandable symbols in it, as per T:NON-ENG USER: Here's a short version:
- On your user page, please include a Latin alphabet transliteration of your username.
- Your signature should also have a Latin transliteration somewhere in it.
Gotta say, I love the Big Finish images! But they're a bit thin. Wider images are much more preferable. You should be aiming to have your images be at the very least 300 pixels wide. If it's possible, images over 420 pixels wide are optimum for reasons involving the TARDIS wiki app. CoT ? 13:39, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
Russian commander in the Pyramid
Hi, I was wondering if we can tap your knowledge of Russian. So this Russian commander in the last episode is credited as "Llya". But somebody edited it at The Pyramid at the End of the World (TV story) as Ilya with some last name. Since I am not sure of where that last name came from or whether it was correct, I removed it for the time being. However, if a native Russian speaker confirms what it is, we are likely to accept it. My suspicion is that the name could be found on his name tags. Unfortunately, he has two of those (see, e.g., the episode at 13:52). So it's hard to say which one is the name. Anyways, your help would be appreciated. Amorkuz ☎ 22:51, May 28, 2017 (UTC)
