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:
Pic deletion Edit
Hey, I thought I'd drop by and explain why I have again deleted File:DarkPathKoschei-1-.jpg. On in-universe pages, like The Master, images from covers are the images of last resort. They should only be used when there is no other possible image. This is the Delgado Master, so obviously there are plenty of other images of him around.
Also, the image is far too narrow (it must be at least 250px wide), and the aspect ratio is wrong (it should be at a minimum 4:3, and you've got 1:2.3). In other words, you should try to avoid pictures that are longer than they are wide, unless there are seriously no other options (as with book and magazine covers).
You might find reading T:ICC helpful.
Thanks very much for your edits!
Please stop altering the timelines on pages without reason. This can be seen a vadnalism and can get you blocked on this wiki. Also, please do not add false and incorrect information either based on guesswork or that is your opinion. Thanks. MM/Want to talk? 18:58, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

Allies and EnemiesEdit
Hi, just because someone doesn't work against the Doctor doesn't mean they're an ally, and just because they're working in the grand scheme of things against the Doctor doesn't make them an enemy. There needs to be an actual link between the two to make them an enemy or ally. The Senior Guard isn't an enemy of the Doctor, they don't meet, or if it is it's very briefly. The guard's actions are against the Controller, not the Doctor. In the article it states "he informed on the Controller" making him an enemy of the Controller (no don't create a category for that please). Thanks. --Tangerineduel / talk 13:25, January 29, 2012 (UTC)
I have removed your image at Peri Brown. Your image is basically not very relevant. The image of Peri tied up can be linked with and episode, but the image of a bad Peri moments before her head is blown off is an iconic image that is not often mixed up with any other. Plus, your image had no copyright info. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 15:35, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
- But that is not Peri being killed, that is Kiv being killed, Peri was already dead.Retsinif talk to me 15:37, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
