Ah, VisualEditor's useful for the italicising and pipe-switching that the classic textile is slow about. However, it's a tad tricky to fix a red link when there's a spelling error. I usually have to go back into the textile to sort it out. This isn't my first experience with the VE. I would suggest this wiki has a button to switch between formats so you can use both textile and the Visual Editor at once- get the simple things done in VE, then take care of tougher formatting the old fashioned way. Or just merge the two into one! VisualEditor's enjoyable because it's more like a real-time view of an article, so I do approve of it on most counts. --Thunderush☎ 05:44, November 27, 2013 (UTC)
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!
