RE: An Unearthly Child[edit source]

Hi. Thanks for explaining. I was aware that the pilot had something of the sort suggested but seeing as it is invalid on the wiki, I thought the broadcasted version must have suggested it as well. I was terribly confused for a minute there, thinking I had forgotten something (which, to be fair, is not an uncommon occurrence). Thanks again :) LauraBatham 13:53, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Edit Warring[edit source]

Yet another instance of User:Epsilon the Eternal exceeding four revisions on the page Poppy Munday. It is becoming increasingly tiring now, especially as the image he keeps applying has been challenged by several users on the talkpage. RadMatter 15:25, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

THANK YOU[edit source]

Oh, thanks.. you're an angel. I was having a lot of grief with that. What's going to happen to the fool who is vandalising the wiki? Saint2 20:42, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

RE: Invalid info[edit source]

My bad. Sorry. Luckily I only did a few pages so it hopefully shouldn't be too much trouble to undo my edits. LauraBatham 01:13, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Green Global Chemicals[edit source]

Thanks for the ping, I've replied at Talk:Global Chemicals! – n8 () 12:40, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Cyber Foundries[edit source]

I noticed a few days ago that you renamed Cyber-Foundry to the Cyber-Foundries. Wouldn't it be suitable to omit the from the title? I know the Master says "the Cyber-Foundries" all in one line, but I don't think that therefore the word the is needed for the title, like how pages such as Dalek Empire and Seal of Rassilon don't use the in their titles, even though they technically could.

Thanks for the reply, apologies that I haven't replied sooner. Whilst I understand where you're coming from with regards to the name The Cyber-Foundries, I personally feel that the The in the name still isn't necessary. If somebody was confused by the title and, at first glance, they thought it was incorrect, all they would have to do is simply click on the page and they'd immediately realise why the page has a seemingly plural name. I'd like to start a further discussion on the page itself. Thalek Prime Overseer 10:31, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Master template[edit source]

I did not have the template saved anywhere. If you would be kind enough to move it to a sandbox, say User:BananaClownMan/Sandbox/Mastertemplate, I would be most grateful. And my Doctors template too, please, if it also goes against any template policies.BananaClownMan 11:03, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Imagery[edit source]

It's not a weird precedent at all. We have often fielded complaints from people who say they'd like images of them or family members taken down. Fair use clearly doesn't apply in such a situation.

"Fair use" isn't a privacy issue. And my removal of the pictures in questionn had nothing to do with anyone's privacy. Rather it was a matter of complying with the wishes of the copyright holder, and that always trumps the nebulous notion of "fair use". When someone asks for an image to be taken down, it is. That's standard practice, no matter what wiki we're talking about. But in this case, it's also in Tardis' self-interest because we surely don't want DWM's legal team coming after us. Beyond that, it's simply the correct and courteous thing to do -- and it's something we've done on this wiki several times before. After all, we aren't entitled to put a single picture up. We exist only at the will and pleasure of those who hold the copyrights for the topic we cover. Furthermore, there is zero argument at all which required these particular pictures to be uploaded as an illustration of that particular person. I'm quite certain others could have been found which would not have raised a single eyebrow at the DWM offices.
Finally, remember that Wikipedia have a much greater claim to being an educational resource than we do, and they're constantly taking down pics for copyright reasons. Thousands of pics get pulled from Wikipedia every year. Today's action was just a normal part of running wikis, even if it's something you haven't yet encountered as an admin.

Re: T:VS elucidation[edit source]

Thank you for those clarifications. I will add them to the table tomorrow. That point about Can I Help You? is interesting and definetly something I would like to debate once we have the forums again. Bongo50 (aka Bongolium500) 20:02, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Early Bird[edit source]

Just in case someone wants the evidence/reasoning for deletion here are the pictures: RadMatter 13:49, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

The generic unnamed bird from Dr. First. The later named Early Bird from this story. The same generic bird from Dr. First which has appeared through Mr. Men history. This one being from Mr. Lazy from 1976.

OH, true enough! I think it must have been an edit conflict that stopped me from posting, then I saw the page deleted. RadMatter 13:54, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Re: Daft Dimension Numbering[edit source]

I am very sorry about changing the format. I remember it being without the number and the very quick check I did found a page where it was without the number (Boys (The Daft Dimension 560) which I have just remembered that I created (although according to the edit history I forgot the citation and that was added later by Doug86 (linking to the incorrect instalment)) and have now fixed). While I do not like the current method, I will not change it again. Bongo50 (aka Bongolium500) 13:28, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Benny infobox image[edit source]

If you weren't aware, I've added a new candidate for the infobox image over at Talk:Bernice Summerfield, so you ought to check it out!

Dalek Appearances[edit source]

Having slept on the matter, I see your point: it does kinda makes sense to have parallel universe equivalents of a species on a species' appearances list. I'll edit Kaleds - list of appearances and Thals - list of appearances to accommodate Masters of War and The Eighth Doctor: Time War: Volume Four. Thalek Prime Overseer 07:32, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit source]

I just reverted vandalism to Ian Levine by user It violates numerous things including using unnessary swearing on the Wiki as well as targetted harrassment. Just thought you would want to be aware of it. Have a nice day. TheFartyDoctor Talk 10:35, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Re: Re: Dr. Who[edit source]

Oh yes, I'm definitely in agreement with you there. Just as we would typically use "the Doctor" in plot summaries and the like, the same should apply to Dr. Who. Danochy 11:54, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Mad (as in "Angry") Larry[edit source]

He doesn't specifically mention the scripts (which, like Mr Saldaamir, had been available for free online for years) or the PROBE crossover, but it seems to me that his citations of Saldaamir and Eternal Escape are just examples in support of his real thesis that "you [should]n't buy any Faction Paradox material from BBV." So I interpret the entirety of BBV's 2020s Faction content as what he's decrying, not any of the releases in particular. – n8 () 16:12, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

I don't think CoI is playing a role in my revision of the page, but I see what you mean; I don't think the decider here needs to be an admin, so maybe I'll try to drag in Borisashton or Najawin (PBUH) to break the tie, if that's ok with you?
Oh, regarding The Plot of the War, it's definitely summarizable, as you can see at the awesome DWRG page for it; but my thought was that there's little utility in a section which will likely remain to be added until the end of history, when a plot summary is already given (albeit in a distributed fashion) by clicking the links to the entries. The story-order listing of entries is already kind of unique for story pages on the wiki: we don't list tables of contents for any other book. But I don't feel strongly either way, so I'm completely okay with being overruled on this point. – n8 () 16:36, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I really hope he's okay! – n8 () 16:51, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Does the original Eternal Escape warrant a short story page? RadMatter 18:49, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
There was mention of "The Enemy's homeworld" but I'm not sure if that is enough. RadMatter 19:17, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
