Request for opinion on thread

Hey Laura, it would appear from your edit history that you've heard Find and Replace, as such I would be very interested your opinion over at Thread:206638. Best wishes, CoT ? 17:27, July 13, 2017 (UTC)


RE: Deleted image

Hey there, I'm good thanks for asking. As for the image, I don't know; I did not delete it. Although, I'd guess it was not fit for the wiki. For one, it was not even named properly and was facing away from the article, something that is preferred to be avoided here. It may have also been a licensing issue. Speculation aside, I advise you ask the admins why for more clarification. Happy editing. Snivystorm 01:32, January 17, 2018 (UTC)

Re: vandalism

Hi! Thanks for your concern. The user in question is a repeat offender who is most likely some bored little kid who has somehow accessed an adult account. I've informed the wiki admin who also works for Fandom about the issue, so it should be taken care of soon. Thanks and keep up the good work! Shambala108 02:10, February 24, 2018 (UTC)

Sorry about the removed edit. I took measures for this not to repeat. Please let me know if, despite this, you have further problems, whether on this wiki or on others. Amorkuz 22:31, February 26, 2018 (UTC)

Real world people

Hey there!

I love seeing initiative in creating pages for oft-forgotten members of the crew. That said, I have a few notes you might want to keep in mind for future page creations.

Let's use Elizabeth Trubridge as our example (your last edit)

  1. {{real world}}: very important to have this on top
  2. {{NameSort}}: very important for this to be at the bottom
  3. "as a Production manager" should really be "as a production manager". I understand that autosuggest defaults to capitalising the first letter, but that is because our iteration of MediaWiki does not differentiate between titles this way.
  4. A little search can go a long way. Put {{imdb name}} as an external link on new cast or crew pages. All you have to do is search their name at, and you should immediately get a result which clearly corresponds to the person who worked on Doctor Who. If you can't find their page, though, don't sweat it.

Here are the changes which have been made since page creation (link).

Another wording I quite favour for these pages is "was a [job title] credited on the Doctor Who television story [X]." It acknowledges that they may well have worked on other stories, for which they were not credited on-screen, or which perhaps we have neglected to record. See this wording in action here (link).

Oh sorry! I deleted a new category about the Doctor's fears after a deletion tag went up on it, which led me to remove the category from the Cybermen page. I assumed you were the one who added the category and reverted your edit as a quick fix. My bad, I should have actually looked at the edit instead of being lazy. You made some good edits there, so I'm glad you've put it back right. Sorry again! --Revan\Talk 16:49, March 7, 2018 (UTC)

The Clocksmith's TARDIS

Hi, I thought this page was set for American English - that was why the original Clocksmith's TARDIS page was taken down - someone Pm'd Shambala108 about it and I saw the thread. Sorry you went through that trouble. --Saint2 05:58, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

I will do just that The preceding unsigned comment was added by Blueoctopus76 (talk • contribs) .


Hi, I've been remiss in thanking you for all the cleanup edits you do (partly because I thought I had already made such an edit). Anyway, we don't have enough people doing cleanup on this huge wiki and your work is definitely appreciated. Shambala108 01:46, June 22, 2019 (UTC)

Deleting my mess

Thank you, Laura, for sorting out the mess I made of a new page - that already existed. I'm a bit green at all this and lunged in before getting a proper handle on the working. All the best x
