Replying

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 imdb.com, 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).

Edits

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) .

Cleanup

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)

Thanks for the clean up on Edge of Destruction. Still getting used to editing so forgot to spell check. Thanks it was in quite a state. --WhoCares 02:57, July 1, 2020 (UTC)

Check on

Hello, User:LauraBatham. I just wanted to stop by and check how you were doing in these trying times of self-isolation?BananaClownMan 09:55, April 16, 2020 (UTC)

My job got closed too, but I've been put on the paid leave, so I don't have to worry about income. So, I've decided to have that Doctor Who binge watch I've been putting off, so I can help fill in the missing information on the wiki. By the way, I've never had to opportunity to thank you before for fixing my spelling and grammar. I have Dyspraxia, so I sometimes hit the wrong keys without realizing, and its nice of you to step in and repair them.BananaClownMan 10:12, April 16, 2020 (UTC)
Hopefully things will turn out in your favour. Nice people like you deserve good karma. Have you seen Farewell, Sarah Jane. I cried.BananaClownMan 18:44, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

Could you give some feedback in a thread?

Hey there. Given your participation at Talk:Arachnids in the UK (TV story), would you be willing to chime in with your take on Thread:277667? It started off as a discussion about whether the wiki should have individual pages for slurs and discriminatory language, but has morphed a bit to talk about content warnings more generally, related to that talk page discussion you were involved in. Best. Najawin 01:31, July 5, 2020 (UTC)

hi there. i want to know why did u remove my pic

thats ok. i am working on a story about cybermen. want me to show u?

Categories

Hi, re your post on User:Vincent VG's talk page, yes you are correct, the categories he added are redundant and therefore not necessary to be added to the pages. Thanks! Shambala108 13:10, August 7, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks

Hey, just wanted to give you my thanks for fixing my error in March (Releases) - I realised not long after that I'd already found a more specific date for The Stone House and added it to 7 March (Releases), but completely forgot to undo my edit on that month page. So it's much appreciated! JDPManjoume 14:14, August 30, 2020 (UTC)

RE: In use tag

Hi. My apologies if my work on the 'List of audio cliffhangers' article has caused you unnecessary grief; it wasn't my intention. However, I have to point out that I've not seen the "In Use" tag anywhere on that page - the tag I see at the top is the "Cleanup" tag and I've been working on that basis. Sorry, nonetheless, if I've caused you needless trouble. - James BelcherMorganJames 13:31, September 18, 2020 (UTC)

Davros

…? Definitely a mistake, presumably in one of the merges I had to carry out. By all means restore them. --Scrooge MacDuck 08:11, October 9, 2020 (UTC)

Master template

You're absolutely correct that it should be kept on the talk page. Thanks for pointing my mistake out, I did the archiving in a quick break from work, so it went over my head to check it. OncomingStorm12th 00:39, November 6, 2020 (UTC)
