DWA 45Edit

A personal welcome aboard, enjoy the ride!
Thanks for your message, hope you aren't too gutted that I've rewritten the DWA45. Sorry I was on a bit of a roll. Hope you like what I've done though, I tried to cover everything, I suppose I want to see this wiki as the definitive guide!
Have I missed anything?
The cover gallery on the main page shows the various editions available (a's and b's where appropriate). At some point I'd like to revisit issue pages with an 'ADDITIONAL IMAGE' section including photos of the free gifts and probably alternative covers (theres been 3 so far), but its not on my priority list!

Thanks for the welcome; I'm having fun browsing around here. And it's no problem at all about the editing; in fact I rather hoped you'd fill in the blanks (and wouldn't be upset that I'd interrupted what was clearly a project you were enjoying!) The extra images would be nice; perhaps in a gallery setting; but just the info you added is fantastic.
One question though, does this wiki try for an impartial or neutral point of view (NPOV?). Some wikis are more into that than others, but I'm always startled when I see things like "cool calendar" in a wiki setting, even when I know that in this case it's the language used by the magazine itself! -- Wendy (talk) 01:31, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
As far as the magazines go I've been trying to present what's in the magazines (within the various contexts). So if it's described as a 'cool calender' within the magazine and it fits within the article then go ahead and write it like that. As far as neutral POVs, generally speaking we try for it, though generally speaking it's about not being bias (I know that's more or less a NPOV), much of a muchness really, but you can see a bias article for what it is, NPOV is a bit more vague of an idea. --Tangerineduel 13:12, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

WelcomeEdit

Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Merrystar

Thanks for your recent 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 Fandom 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 use another form of English, 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:

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:

Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes like this:

Thanks for becoming a member of the TARDIS crew! If you have any questions, see the Help pages, add a question to one of the Forums or ask an admin.

Your input is needed!

Spotlight Edit

Whew! I'm glad you were able to approve both. Saves me a lot of administrative headaches, especially as Imamadmad has temporarily lost internet connection. She was very worried about DWA's Spotlight "fate", as it were.

If the Tardis spotlight does slip to the 1 December group, though, can you let me know? The graphic I submitted would be fine for late November, but I think if it's no going up until December, we'd probably want to switch away from something that primarily said "23.11.13" to something that hinted at the Christmas special.

Christmas cheer Edit

Happy holidays!

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!
