Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark HarveyWallbanger

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:

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. -- CzechOut (Talk) 22:11, 2012 September 24

No real world info Edit

Hiya :) Thanks for your edits here! Please be very careful, however, when editing about real world things. Your edits at Hawaii are a case in point. We don't know from any DWU source that it is "insular" or a "state" or that it became a state in 1959. Those are all real world facts, but the DWU is not the real world. Please try to never go beyond what is explicitly stated in DWU sources, as is indicated in our local policies. Thanks :)

p.s. I'll correct Hawaii, but if you've made any similar errors lately, please make sure you scrub away any "real world creep" that you may have allowed in.
Ok, thank you. That is a piece of policy I had missed!--HarveyWallbanger 21:52, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

Sontarans Edit

Gotcha. I reworded it a bit. If you get a chance, take a look and see if it sounds good to you. Thanks! Shambala108 23:47, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

No problem. If you ever have any questions or problems, feel free to ask! Shambala108 19:05, August 18, 2013 (UTC)

The Name of the Doctor revertionEdit

Heya. The reason I reverted your edit was because it wasn't much of a strong continuity link. Continuity sections are for detailing the story's link to another story, such as if the Doctor mentions a trip to someplace like Venice, then we could say something like: "the Doctor visited Venice in...". Your edit basically could be said about alot of stories - where the Doctor repeats something he's said before, because we all repeat things we've said before, and it's just not a strong enough link to tie the two stories together. The paragraph before gives an example of when the Doctor has avoided a goodbye because he said he "hates them," which is a definitive link to what he's said. Has that cleared things up a tad? :) --Revan\Talk 17:51, August 12, 2013 (UTC)

Additional category questions Edit

I'm going to have to put you on hold for a bit with that. Please be patient, as I do want to answer your question. Unfortunately there's a major and pressing bit of cleanup that has to be done elsewhere on the site that has priority. I'll write back over the weekend.
czechout@fandom    17:09: Sat 07 Sep 2013

Thanks for waiting.
There's already Category:Execution methods. It's tucked away under category:crime, but it's possible that our coverage has grown to the point that we need to more clearly delineate between crime and punishment. And we don't really have a category for lesser crimes, because there just aren't that many that people have written about. Still, we probably do need Category:Legal punishments, so I'll go ahead and create that.
As for the deities, myths, legends, the whole subject — we've never really settled that question very well. If you wanna start a discussion on the subject in the forum, it might lead to some better conclusion.
However, I have to tell you that you need to be a bit more patient with your use of the forum. We do want to bring difficult issues like how to handle myth and fiction within a fictional universe to the forum. But we'll need to give that discussion some time to breathe. I notice in your last discussion that you only really gave it a day before you started moving forward. With the forum, you need to at least wait a week to give our more irregular users a fair time to login and see the discussion. The wiki's gone a long time without settling this issue; it can wait a week — or even a month — more, so long as we get a fair opportunity for community discussion on record.

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!

Bold text Edit

Hi! Please note that per Tardis:Bold text, we use bold text for the name of an article, as well as alternate/additional names in the first sentence of the first paragraph. However, bolding "particle disseminator" for the "MASER" article is like bolding "Time Lord" for the "Second Doctor" article, or "beverage" on the "coffee" article. It's not an alternate name, it's a description of what it is. Thanks. Shambala108 19:26, September 3, 2014 (UTC)

Et. alEdit

Hello! I just think that it makes more sense to only mention the story in which that particular thing was first referenced. --GusF 21:34, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Regarding the message you posted on GusF's talk page, you might be interested in reading Thread:129568. No consensus was reached there, but it might prove helpful in answering your question. Shambala108 00:52, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Edit

... for doing the decades. :) ----Ebyabe (talk) 14:49, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

Black Sun War Edit

You're very welcome. I've mostly only looked at the Time Lord related backup stories as part of a very long self imposed project regarding the Time Lords and Gallifrey's depiction over the last 45 years, and as a result I double checked and cleaned up information on the Black Sun War as a part of that. Most of it's clean up, although I did admittedly add more info to the page for the actual War as I recall. -- Tybort (talk page) 22:07, December 9, 2014 (UTC)

Silence of the River Edit

That's a good point. Sorry for not thinking about it. It is interesting then, how she knows and what she knows. Amorkuz 15:47, April 15, 2016 (UTC)

Tut-Ankh-Amen Edit

Hi, I'm relistening to the River box set and was puzzled by the dating of the first story. The story says that it is one year after the discovery of Tut-Ankh-Amen's tomb. And it seems that the dating of that to 1926 on the page Tut-Ankh-Amen was added by you. The reason that I'm asking is that the real universe has a different dating: it is 1922 in the real world, see Howard Carter. Now, of course DWU can be different. But then again, there is usually a good reason for that, which I don't see here. If I may ask, do you have COMIC: The Gods Walk Among Us? Unfortunately, I don't, so I cannot check how exactly 1926 is featured there. I would like to find out if this comic strip really retcons human history, which frankly seems somewhat unnecessary. Thank you in advance. Amorkuz 22:40, July 12, 2016 (UTC)

No worries. As you know, I sometimes make worse blunders based on clearer information. The DWU is a complex universe, and we're all trying to bring some order to it. I think it is at least reasonable to assume that the tomb was found shortly before 1926, say, in the 1920s. That's a reasonably precise dating already. I won't make changes just yet before asking the editor who changed the year on The Boundless Sea to 1927: there is always a chance he/she knows something I've missed. I also put an informational request on the Refdesk. I hope we'll get to the bottom of it. It's a pleasure co-editing with you. Amorkuz 08:53, July 13, 2016 (UTC)
