If you need to leave a message here on my talk page, please follow a couple of guidelines:

  • Please don't forget to sign your posts. Like most admins, I won't answer any post that doesn't have a signature.
  • Also, if you are starting a new topic, please add a new heading.


Hi Shambala, I saw your recent post in Thread:260549 and noticed it seems to contain an inaccuracy. You said “on this wiki, it is up to the admins to decide matters of ... personal attacks”, whereas the actual policy on T:NPA specifies that “If you are personally attacked, you should ask the attacker to stop and note this policy”, and it is only if the attacks continue that you should “contact an Administrator and clearly state the problem” so that “the admin will evaluate the situation and attempt to mediate the issue.” Unless I’m severely misunderstanding the letter of the law, this means that personal attacks are not decided by the admins but by the attacked person, and it is only at their request that admins should get involved. This is standard policy across many wikis.

I hope you’re well! – N8 (/👁️) 17:36, January 9, 2020 (UTC)

When you get the chance, could you let me know if my reading of this is correct? If this is a place where the policy-as-written is out-of-date or wrong, it would be very useful to get it clarified. – N8 (/👁️) 15:43, January 11, 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for the clarification! In answer to your "Hopefully," if I had to pick between Universe A where admins protect me from being accused of violating T:NPA, and Universe B where my statements of personal offense are respected by all parties regardless of admin approval, I would vastly better prefer Universe B. But it seems that the policy maintains a tidy balance between the two. Cheers! – N8 (/👁️) 16:05, January 13, 2020 (UTC)

User pages reply

Can I ask why this request is being made. To my mind, the "conjecture" tag is being used for its intended purpose. BananaClownMan 17:44, January 10, 2020 (UTC)


Isn't the present tense of a verb also useable as a noun? If there is no page shouldn't this redirect to a section about the use of the verb?

TBH it was something I was unaware of til I watched with closed captions closely to Spyfall, but then to find out it is the namesake of Vworp Vworp! in 2010 makes me feel very ignorant for the last decade. talk2ty 16:08, January 11, 2020 (UTC)

Discussion policy

Hi there. I must confess your post on Thread:260549 citing Tardis:Discussion policy to me left me a bit confused. I might just be being an idiot but I'm honestly not sure how to stay on-topic to the thread by addressing User:Amorkuz's concerns when both of his most recent posts seem to be in direct violation of Tardis:Spoiler policy which is in turn cited at T:DISCUSS. It would be much appreciated if you could enlighten me as there are clearly things I do not know yet. Pleasure speaking to you as always and thanks in advance. --Borisashton 22:20, January 11, 2020 (UTC)

I can appreciate the sentiment of your reason for removing my last comment but I wonder if it was helpful to Amorkuz. If Amorkuz didn't see SOTO's message, as I assumed since SOTO's was the immediately preceding post, then I feel like I was in fact helping Amorkuz so he could edit or remove his response addressing Eloquence. As an admin, would you mind posting a message to that effect to clear up any confusion? Thanks, --Borisashton 01:24, January 12, 2020 (UTC)

RE:Talk pages

Hi. Okay, will do. Thanks. --DCLM 08:32, January 13, 2020 (UTC)

Plot summaries vs. character biographies

Considering the thread was sparked by your own post in the "To-do list" on the Forums, I invite you to please weigh in at Thread:264489 whenever you find the time. --Scrooge MacDuck 12:12, January 13, 2020 (UTC)

1.3 HTML tidying


Tried posting the link below on facebook as a friend gad mentioned watching Carnival of Monsters. But comes up with a 404 error. Suspect it might be the exclamation mark within the URL.!

Vanishing infobox

The issue is resolved now, but at the time it wasn't displaying any variables, just the name itself. It seems to have had something to do with the spaces, which might have been non-breaking spaces (or something similar), that MediaWiki just won't recognise. I replaced the spaces between the variable names and the equal signs manually in this edit, and all the information popped up again.

Yeah, that was very, very strange. Now we know what to do if it crops up again, though. :)

Admin nomination

Hello. As of my time of writing, you're the admin to have edited a page. This message is a request to make a thread/announcement that I've put myself foward for Admin nomination, like there was for the last time there was a nomination. Also, I'd very much look foward to your comments on the matter, of course. Anyway, thank you in advance OncomingStorm12th 01:26, January 22, 2020 (UTC)


Hey. Could I ask you to revisit this page. I've added some new information and would like your opinion on it. Thanks --DCLM 08:46, January 23, 2020 (UTC)

I'm sorry do you have an issue with my images, they are real they were taken in April 1983 at Longleat House, they are my property to publish.

Gereld/Gerard Carey

Hi Shambala, just wanted to direct your attention to two pages which I think need sorting. I was going to put a message on the 'talk page', but I thought it would be quicker to write hear so it has your attention.

In the Torchwood TV story Meat, there is character named Greg who is portrayed by an actor credited by Gereld Carey. In From Out of the Rain, there is a character named Greg who is portrayed by an actor credited by Gerard Carey.

After having done some research, 'Meat' actually credits the actor as 'Gerard Carey' and not 'Gereld Carey'. Also, there was no such character named 'Greg' in 'From Out of the Rain', and is probably just a credits mistake.

I was just wondering if we would be able to delete the page known as Gereld Carey (since this name is never used in any credit), change the role on the 'Gerard Carey' page, and put a note in the page for 'From Out of the Rain' which states that the character has been 'double-credited'. Sorry if this is all really confusing - it took me a few moments to establish what was going on! I would have done this all myself, but wanted to confirm with you first. I am more than happy to make the changes, but just wanted your opinion first. Thanks again! Layton4 - 22:09, 28/1/2020



I have made a box to link to other wiki's of popular tv series. Would you like to place it on your main page so we can direct people to each others wiki's?

Thank you.



Violent behavior

Hey Shambala. Could you please take a moment to look into User: Their behaviour on the Wikia is highly inappropriate and they have even launched a personal attack on me. It would be appreciated. Thanks. --DCLM 12:47, February 5, 2020 (UTC)

Another user, User:Unbanned reality talk, is refusing to abide by the rules of the Wikia too, and seem to be leaning towards hatred towards a certain area of society. --DCLM 13:54, February 5, 2020 (UTC)
Hello, this is Shambala. I would just like to say how dare you? How dare you question User: She is a great contributor to this wiki, as well as really cute and cool and funny and intelligent. You may show yourself out. Thanks for the tip on User:Unbanned reality talk though, will ban them soon. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
That first bit is a joke right? --DCLM 14:47, February 5, 2020 (UTC)
The shoe is on the other foot. Dissident Prodigy 02:28, February 6, 2020 (UTC)

No. It’s real. Get off my talk page. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Stop pretending to be Shambala108. You are an unregistered Wikia contributor. Actually I think it's illegal to pretend to be someone else. I HAVE seen who is writing these messages, don't pretend. --DCLM 14:54, February 5, 2020 (UTC)
Hello Shambala. No need for action anyway, as User:Tangerineduel was quick to step in and deal with the situation. Including the person pretending to be you just above. --DCLM 16:27, February 5, 2020 (UTC)

Based on the above conversation, their edit histories, and User talk:, I think it's quite likely that (now banned) is the same user as, who was temporarily banned in 2018 but is now still unbanned. – N8 (/👁️) 20:19, February 5, 2020 (UTC)

I think that is correct. "" was banned for sock-puppetry. And I think there was somewhere else where they explicitly stated they were the same. --DCLM 20:41, February 5, 2020 (UTC)

Just FYI, since you banned them

User:Dissident Prodigy appears to be a sock puppet User:Unbanned reality talk. The former was created suspiciously quickly after the latter was banned, the names are vaguely similar, and the former’s only contributions are removing messages insulting the latter from his talk page (including that one message about mentioning logical fallacies by name being ‘reddit-tier arguing’, which, if you look at the history, the latter kept trying to remove - obviously it hit too close to home), as well as a supsicious cryptic comment about the ‘shoe [being] on the other foot’ on this very talk page. Probably something you should look into. to me 13:03, February 6, 2020 (UTC)
