Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Miranda Borman

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!

Hello

We only take the best!

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:

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 on my talk page. -- Mini-mitch (Talk) 23:17, 26 April 2012

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!

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!
