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
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
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:
Series 7[edit source]
Please do add speculation to the Series 7 page. You done this with two examples, but I cannot blame you. Firstly you put (and possible death) next to the information regarding Amy's and Rory's departure. Please note that is is only, at the moment, speculation that may die, and should also be backed up with a source. Even then it should have been added to the rumours section. The episode note should not contain that detail, even after airing.
Secondly, you added River Song to the cats section. This was without source. Please find a reliable, BBC source that states she is returning before adding it again. MM/Want to talk? 12:42, March 26, 2012 (UTC)
I cannot present the source for River Song, but I do believe that Moffatt confirmed it in an interview a few months ago. He merely said something like "and she [River] is back." --HarryPotterRules1 talk to me 21:36, March 26, 2012 (UTC)
Doctor Who TV[edit source]
Please don't delete cited material without good cause[edit source]
At the Brigadier, you recently deleted a whole paragraph of information, presumably because you felt that a recent television episode superseded information from various books. On this wiki, all information from valid sources is judged to be of equal weight. Simply removing cited information because you think it conflicts with televised information is not allowed. If done repeatedly, it could be considered an act of vandalism.
The Wedding of River Song is in apparent conflict with several published stories, in the same way that the DWU presents several different accounts of what happened Atlantis, how the Earth died, or what happened to the Marie Celeste. All information should be presented as equally valid so that the reader can make up her own mind. Thanks :)
Christmas cheer[edit source]
Farewell, Sarah Jane[edit source]
Can you please add the links to the episodes. It's not good enough to just italicise, you need to add the prefix and the link to the story as well. Thanks.
