Owen's death date Edit
Hi. I noted you recently changed the setting of Corpse Day from 2000s to 2009 because "Owen's dead, so it's 2009" but, sadly, as Reset and Dead Man Walking (Owen's death and ressurection) take place during December 2008, we have two years in which Corpse Day and Believe may take place: 2008 and 2009. This means that references to his death can't be the only thing used to date these stories. Unless there are other IU-information that makes us aware of the specific year they take place, we should roll the "setting" back to 2000s. OncomingStorm12th ☎ 23:22, April 27, 2018 (UTC)
- Ooh, nice catch! Back when Corpse Day was released, I went back to look the date of his death date, and looked for the basic: death and ressurection. Didn't look A Day in the Death. Thanks for finding and pointing me the info. Will now change relevant categories on the audio story pages. :) OncomingStorm12th ☎ 23:48, April 27, 2018 (UTC)
One image per section Edit
Re: images Edit
Hi I saw your answer to User:NateBumber. I'm a little confused as to why you removed images from so many pages if you disagree with the policy?
At any rate, we don't usually like to have rules that only apply for some cases and not for others. It's just too hard to enforce rules that don't apply to every situation. If you think it's ok for articles of a certain length to have extra pictures, what happens when the article gets too long? Someone would have to police that, and we just don't have enough people on the wiki who both are willing and have the time to check on this kind of situation. And just how would we define "particularly long pages" in a way that would be clear to any user? Sometimes our rules seem unfair or arbitrary, but they are there to make sure the wiki runs smoothly.

Image policy Edit
I'm trying to get an image policy finalized, and would like to invite you to discuss it on Thread:247941.
- I don't know the story, but humans are easy to categorize. If you know what century they're from, you have "Category:Xth century individuals". If you don't know, then you have "Category:Humans from uknown eras". And if they don't have a name, you also have "Category:Humans with unknown names". Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to have oodles and oodles of categories on a page; the requirement is one minimum, and the categories I cited are sufficient for characters about whom we know very little. Since Todd has "Category:21st century individuals", that is enough for our requirements. Thanks Shambala108 ☎ 14:05, May 10, 2019 (UTC)
- Hi, per Tardis:Signature policy, your signature must link not just to your user page, but also your talk page.
- Anyway, I don't know why you bumped your old message; what exactly are you looking for? I've already explained that our category system covers humans no matter how small the appearance or mention. It doesn't matter if some of the categories are for individuals not humans, as our pages are supposed to be about the content; categories are just a means to organize pages.

Re: why remove Edit
Hi, in one of your edit summaries you posted: "Why remove something so easy to source?" I will tell you why.
Some of those "source needed" tags have been on articles for years. I am trying to clean up Category:Articles needing citation. There are hundreds of articles with that tag. I don't have the time to painstakingly search for a source for all of them so I'm just removing the information, and if it's so important, it will be added back by someone who knows the information and the source.
If you have sources for some of this info, great, add it back. But please refrain from complaining in the edit summary, that's not what it's there for Tardis:Edit summary. Thanks Shambala108 ☎ 13:30, July 25, 2019 (UTC)
Edit summary Edit
Hi if you are going to make it your thing to go after other users for edit summaries, let me inform you of two things:
- it's a very big job
- it's not your job
Infobox images Edit
Hi please note that on this wiki, some infobox images need community discussion before changing. This applies to articles like the Doctor, the Master, and any companions.
In addition, "Looking left" is a preference, not a requirement. A requirement would be that the images are closely cropped, which none of the ones you used are. Please see Tardis:Guide to images for what we look for in infobox images thanks Shambala108 ☎ 14:09, October 10, 2019 (UTC)
- I'm sure that this community discussion would also apply to the amount of cropping? In cases like the Twelfth Doctor's, that exact cropping was chosen very carefully. I don't have the time right now to revert all of them so I'll try an get to it tomorrow if somebody hasn't done it before then. --Borisashton ☎ 20:51, October 10, 2019 (UTC)
Look, as far as I'm aware (though we can definitely check with an admin), covers for anthologies shouldn't be used to illustrate in-universe stuff. Images should come from stories, and anthologies are not stories (and even then, covers for audio stories are already "stretching" the definition of "image from a story").

- Just to update, I haven't forgotten about this, but I haven't been able to find anything yet. I'll get back to you when I have more info. Shambala108 ☎ 00:31, October 17, 2019 (UTC)
