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:
Hiya :) Edit
Thanks for your note and your contribution!
I have to be honest and say that I don't recall ever facing the situation of a person directly involved with the DWU editing the article about themselves. So we don't really have any policies in place about this. What I'm going to say, therefore, amounts to initial thoughts.
We absolutely want to have accurate articles about living persons, and we want there to be no appearance of bias in those articles.
That seems to me to be a reasonable goal. If you notice blatant errors on the page about you, we do want to know about them and will swiftly endeavor to correct those articles. The fact that you've chosen to add your year of birth seems unobjectionable to me, but going beyond that into giving huge swaths of information about your career and personal life would probably be less appropriate. I'd suggest that you tread lightly when it comes to directly editing your own page, and instead ask for corrections to be made at Talk:Miranda Borman, the discussion page about you. (That page hasn't yet been created, though, which is why it's in red.) When asking for improvements to the article about you, please provide any sources possible about the statements you'd like to see included in your article. For instance, if you'd like us to assert that you appeared in a particular stage play, perhaps you can point us in the direction of the website of the theatre's archives, or maybe the director's personal website, or your own, has an image of the playbill. Using this approach, you can help influence the article, and stop inaccuracies from appearing, but it won't look like you've simply written it yourself and we'll have objective sources.
As for your anecdotes about Dragonfire, I would say that if you can provide a source for the anecdote — perhaps you've told the story on the upcoming DVD commentary or the "making-of" documentary — then it would be unproblematic for you to add the material directly to the Dragonfire page yourself. I think it would be wise, however, to add the material only to Talk:Dragonfire (TV story) if they are your unpublished recollections.
I hope that made some amount of sense! Thanks again for stopping by and helping us improve the accuracy of our article about you!
