Hi :) You've made some crackin' good edits lately, so I hate to have to lower the boom on you — especially in your very first talk page message. However, I gotta do it, because you've unwittingly offended one of the most serious policies we have in place. See, we have a very strict video policy. If we didn't, people would be uploaded whole episodes of DW to our wiki, and we just can't have that kinda blatant copyright violation.
Your recent upload of Video:An Unearthly Child Episode was wrong in two regards. In the first place, it was region locked video, which is not allowed. In the second, it did not appear to come from the BBC directly. We simply cannot allow any video which has not been clearly, officially released by the BBC or the appropriate copyright holders.
Breaking this policy means you'll face some of the harshest penalties on our wiki. I'm entitled to block you right now, for your first offense. However, I'm not going to. It seems like a perfectly innocent mistake to me. Future violations of this policy, however, wil be met with no less than a six month ban.
Again, it is not our usual policy to be quite so harsh with blocking, but we absolutely cannot be a host for videos not released by the BBC. I hope that you understand — and that you'll keep on making some truly positive contributions to our wiki. czechout☎✍05:14: Sat 24 Sep 2011
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!
