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:

Cast lists Edit
- Then why does the Blink (TV story) cast list have Sally Sparrow listed first, while Closing Time (TV story) has Craig Owens listed second? Stryzzar (talk) 13:35, May 6, 2015 (UTC)
- We decided some time back not to use message walls, though I can't remember the specific reasons. To answer your question, yes, when two people message back and forth they use each others' talk pages. Many people find it easier to have two windows open, one with the message on their own page, and one for the response they are writing. Shambala108 ☎ 02:47, May 7, 2015 (UTC)
