Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Frungi

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:

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. Doug86 08:41, April 24, 2013 (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!


Page moves Edit

Hi, please note that only admins are allowed to move pages on this wiki. Please see thread:128198 for the proper procedure if you think a page needs moving/renaming. Thanks, Shambala108 17:24, December 7, 2018 (UTC)

User:Shambala108: I would have thought non-admin users wouldn't have the ability to move pages if that's the case. Or does Wikia not offer control over that? Anyway, is the parenthetical in the title necessary? I've not seen it on other page titles. —Frungi 18:38, December 7, 2018 (UTC)
You might want to read through Tardis:Disambiguation and Tardis:Disambiguation term for starters to learn our policy on disambiguating page titles. I say "for starters" because there are more policies on this, but these are most relevant for the case you came across. Amorkuz 20:22, December 7, 2018 (UTC)
User:Amorkuz: I may be missing it, but I don’t find anything on either of those pages about disambiguating terms that don’t need disambiguation. Scrounger (Spam Filtered) appears to be the only “Scrounger” on the wiki, so what are we disambiguating from? —Frungi 06:55, December 8, 2018 (UTC)
If you go to the Scrounger (Spam Filtered) page, you will see that there is a redlink to another "Scrounger" page that hasn't been created yet. So there's at least two, and therefore a need for disambiguation. Something else to keep in mind, on this wiki we sometimes "futureproof" article names when we think there is/will be something of the same name. The DWU is huge, and it's very common for two different writers to come up with the same name for two different things. Shambala108 07:09, December 8, 2018 (UTC)
Ah, there is now yeah, that’s new, wasn’t there before. And you’ve anticipated my next response to its being redlinked. Thanks for explaining! —Frungi 07:21, December 8, 2018 (UTC)
So is it impossible to limit pagemoves to admins-only on this wiki? Because I feel like if I’m not allowed to, I shouldn’t be able to. —Frungi 07:23, December 8, 2018 (UTC)
I am not a technical person, and in fact I'm probably the least technical person on this wiki. However, the admin who started Thread:128198 is not only our most technical admin, he also works for FANDOM, so if it were possible to restrict page moves to admins, he probably would have done so. So it's probably not possible and we admins can only point users in the right direction regarding page moves. Shambala108 07:29, December 8, 2018 (UTC)
