Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Spreee

Thanks for your recent 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 Fandom 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 use another form of English, 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 an admin.


Hi, just in response to your canon comment in the Myths section of The Mysterious Planet, our Tardis:Canon policy is clear on this issue. The TARDIS Index File Wiki is quite inclusive of most spinoff media and doesn't have the caveat statements that wikipedia chucks on everything. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 18:22, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Continuity & DiscontinuityEdit

In articles continuity is about establishing relationships between the stories see Format for Television Story Entries but there shouldn't be discussion entered into in these sections.

Even in the discontinuity section there shouldn't be any statements based in supposition "probably, maybe, may, perhaps" any statements like that shouldn't be in there, only provable information that can contradict the discontinuity, plothole or explain the error should be in here. (Other wise we'd end up with a million theories from everyone, we need supportable facts). Thanks. --Tangerineduel 12:05, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Just taking on a note about Discontinuity, why are you indenting your explainations for the Discontinuity, it doesnt like right either? Bigshowbower 04:37, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Helps to differenitiate between disparate ideas.

The user talk pageEdit

You probably didn't know this, but technically your user talk page is not yours. It's a public space used by other editors to leave you messages. When you wipe messages, you make it harder for other editors to see whether you've been contacted as to a certain point. Because conversations are at least two-sided, you also make it impossible for people to follow a conversation that they may have encountered on another person's talk page which involves you. For this reason, please do not simply "blank" this talk page in an effort to keep it "clean". If you want to archive the messages to another page, and leave behind a link to that archive on this page, that's fine. But just destroying the information is considered disrespectful to the people whose messages you're "blanking", and unhelpful to others who may be trying to learn something from the discussion that only in part occurs here.

Accordingly, I have restored earlier messages that once appeared here. CzechOut | 17:13, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Moffat's intent versus realityEdit

I notice you are continuing to revert my usage of the language "the xth episode of the yth season of the 1963 version of DW". On The Masque of Mandragora, you have given the rationale that Moffat seems inclined to treat the whole thing as one series. Well the problem with that rationale is that Moffat's irrelevant. We all know that there are two series, under two completely different production regimes. There's no doubt in the minds of BBC Worldwide that there are two different series, one that began in 1963 and one that began in 2005. IMdB believes there are two series. Amazon believes there are two series. My bookcase believes there are two series, because it's realeased one of them as "Series 1-4", but not the other. And we learn today that this first Matt Smith series is being released on DVD as "Series 5", irrespective of what you might have inferred from Moffat's comments. Therefore, there is a reason to cite an episode as "the xth episode of the yth season of the 1963 version of DW", because there are eight series' of episodes already where it's important to designate which of the two versions of Doctor Who is meant. Yes, as DW fans we're not confused at all. But the casual fan and inexperienced user of this site must be considered. It is important to say that Planet of Giants is a serial from the second season of the 1963 version of Doctor Who, whereas Tooth and Claw is an episode from the second series of the BBC Wales version of Doctor Who.

Solar system Edit

I know you don't mean disrespect, and neither do I by the way. In colloquial use I agree it is not a production error as that is what most people call stellar systems. However, when it is a scientific machine which is supposed to give accurate results and it calls it a solar system, I'd consider it incorrect. It's the same as calling the Doctor "Doctor Who". Many people do it, but it isn't factually correct (that we know of) as his name is "the Doctor". The Thirteenth Doctor 23:21, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

The TARDIS from The Two Doctors Edit

Since you're the only active member who participated in the discussion at Talk:TARDIS (The Two Doctors), I thought you might be interested in returning to that page to see why the article has now been deleted. Your gut instinct on that was right: there's only one TARDIS in The Two Doctors — and that's according to World Game!

Doctor Who 2005 Edit

Hi! I wanted to thank you for the hard work you've done recently on cleaning up the Doctor Who 2005 story pages. I'd like to direct your attention to thread:142060. To make a long story short, we currently need editors working on these story pages, cleaning them up. Since you are already doing this, if you like you can create a category that goes something like this: [[Category:SPR ok]] that you can place on any 2005 DW or Torchwood story pages once you have done a cleanup. This is completely voluntary, and if you'd rather not be bothered, that's fine; I just figured you were already doing the work so we might as well pool all our efforts. You can read more about what exactly needs doing at the thread I listed above. Thanks! Shambala108 16:38, October 2, 2013 (UTC)

Tomato check tracking Edit

Well, I put this in the thread, but it's really hard to read it there. I thought you might like to see it at full width. This chart tells you which episodes you don't need to worry about anymore, as they've already been touched by two editors.

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!
