Welcome to the Tardis:About SpaceTimeWiggles

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:

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. Doug86 22:25, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit source]

Hi! Thanks for your recent edits to the wiki. However, before you continue creating or editing pages, please take a look at some sample pages on the wiki to see what we include in articles and how we write articles.

Some things to point out:

  • All articles must have at least one category. You can find out more about categories at Tardis:Categories and Tardis:Categorisation.
  • If a character/object appears in only one story, don't put their story in the "appearances" field of the infobox. Instead, put it in the "only" field.
  • Check through your edits to see if any of the nouns can be wikified. We don't want to have any articles that link to nothing.
  • Always include the story name(s) in the body of the article, regardless of whether you've already included it in the infobox. Check out any article on the wiki for the format if you're not sure.
  • A helpful piece of advice is to always use the "preview" button before you press the "publish" button. This way you can catch any mistakes.

Thanks for your contributions, and I hope this info helps! Shambala108 00:09, August 20, 2013 (UTC)

Categories[edit source]

Hi! I had to remove the "Leela audio stories" and "K9 audio stories" categories you added to several audio pages. Those categories do not exist on this wiki. You can find a list of categories at Special:Categories. If you want to use a category that does not exist, it must be created, but in general we don't have categories for companion stories (Romana, the Brig, and Sarah Jane are exceptions). Thanks!

I actually don't know why we don't have categories for the other companions, it was probably decided before my time. If you like, you can bring up the subject in the forums, specifically at Board:The Panopticon. Thanks! Shambala108 20:28, August 21, 2013 (UTC)
No problem, and if you have any questions or problems, feel free to ask me or any other admin. Shambala108 20:52, August 21, 2013 (UTC)

Stubs[edit source]

Hey. While it's great that you'reclassifying the unmarked stubs, please be aware that we use templates for that; we don't actually add categories. {{Audio stub}} will both add the page to Category:Audio stubs, but also make a visible mark on the page for all to see. The templates are always the category name, but with "stub" in the singular.

I repeat, please do not outright add stub categories, but instead add stub templates. Thank you.

Stubs[edit source]

Hi! Please familiarize yourself with Tardis:Stub, particularly the section on story stubs. Many of the audio stubs you are placing on pages are incorrect. Thanks. Shambala108 03:24, September 2, 2013 (UTC)

Christmas cheer[edit source]

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!
