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:
- the listing of all our help, policy and guideline pages
- our Manual of Style
- our image use policy
- our user page policy
- a list of people whose job it is to help you
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:

Policies to read[edit source]
Hi! Please make note of the following policies when you edit:
Hi! You must add valid sources to information that you add to articles. Please see Tardis:Valid sources and Tardis:Citation for the proper sources and format. Shambala108 ☎ 01:48, September 26, 2015 (UTC)
Hi! I obviously need to repeat what I posted above: we do not allow speculation on any of our articles. If you are using words like "possible", "probable", "unclear", "unknown", "presumably" or other similar words, it is speculation and will be removed. If you continue to ignore these instructions, your edits will be reverted, as it is easier to revert bad edits than to hunt through a long article to correct one sentence. Thanks.

- It's possible that the only way to get your attention is to block you, so I have blocked you for a week for repeatedly adding speculation to articles after I have twice told you not to. Shambala108 ☎ 01:59, October 3, 2015 (UTC)
You must learn how to properly source material you add to a page. It is every user's responsibility to learn the wiki's policies; it is no one else's job to clean up after you. It's much easier to revert your edits than to hunt through a long article for your errors. Therefore, if you want your work to remain on this wiki, you must cite it properly. Thanks.
