Talk Pages and Infobox additions

A few things I have been thinking about regarding to the above two. I though I would sound them out to you. --Bigshowbower 13:24, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Talk page Can we implement some sort of warning when a user creates a talk page saying something like "This page should be used to discuss relevant edits - not to discuss plot holes, rumours and speculation" or something along the lines. For example (you've probably seen it already) but the various discussion on The End of Time page, another user has commented on the discussion saying how they should be in the forums. I have asked various users to discuss in the Forums.

Infobox addition The infobox regarding individuals could it have another section added called "Mentions", just like other infoboxes.

I've actually had a go at using the same clean up template but modifying the the text, it is on my user page. Please feel free suggest any changes. --Bigshowbower 03:36, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
That looks a lot better, thank you --Bigshowbower 03:34, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Rich Text Editor

I've been noticing lately that it's been causing a lot of issues, specifically in that it adds random   spaces all over the place and a large number of blank lines after every simple template that it finds. In fact, one of the recent series of edits to the article on the latest special made it so that the 6 templates at the bottom of the page took up over 3 full screens of blank space and scrolling. Is there anything you can do to request that it get turned off along the way? -- sulfur 19:16, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Template boxes for every Doctor Who novel

Seeing as you have a template box for TDA and EDA I think we should have one for every doctor and maybe even Torchwood Novels. --Catkind121 10:47, January 4, 2010 (UTC)


We might want to keep an eye on this year article, in particular the DWU section. I just removed items relating to 11th Doctor episodes that haven't even aired yet (including one suggesting the Doctor meets Amy in July). Someone also put forward the guess that the Mickey and Martha scene from End of Time takes place in January 2011 when there's nothing to suggest it couldn't have taken place in 2015 or some other time. I'm not suggesting page protection at this point, but as more plot tidbits regarding Season 5 begin to emerge, it'll be worth keeping an eye on the page (as well as 2010) for nonsense. 23skidoo 20:04, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

  • Sounds good. As I say I don't see it as a big problem yet, so I'll leave protection as a last-resort measure (such as if an edit war erupts as what happened with Children of Earth and 2009/2010). I actually tend to pay more attention to the Real World dates (we've got something approaching almost a day-by-day timeline for the history of the franchise now) so I didn't immediately notice the DWU-related additions. 23skidoo 16:18, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Other language

Hello, I would like to bring your attention (since you an administrator of this wiki) about this idea of mine having a link to Doctor Who wiki in an other language: Forum:Adding links to other language Doctor Who wiki --4me 01:37, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism heads up

Just FYI I've blocked a couple of anonymous IPs for posting vandalism. One managed to hit a bunch of SJA-related pages and create a nonsense article on a nonexistent episode. (I thought anonymous IPs weren't allowed to create articles?) Another hit one of the DWM pages. These things seem to come in waves so I'll keep a weather eye out. Sadly we can't permaban IPs because they're often shared by legitimate users. Usually if they get blocked for a day or so they get bored and go after another website... 23skidoo 21:09, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

  • The protection of my user page comes from experience from being an admin on Wikipedia. Now that I've started to address (and block) vandals, it makes my page a potential target. I've gone through enough occasions where disgruntled IPs have caused havoc to my user page that I feel justified in taking advantage of a perk offered by being an admin to take this preventative measure. If I begin archiving my Talk pages (see below) I'll likely protect the archived pages, too. I agree it is a bit unfair to "non-admin" users who can't do it on their own, however on the other hand if a user needs to have their User page protected all they need to do is ask one of us to protect it. 23skidoo 14:26, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

Talk page archiving

I notice that older discussion threads on your Talk Page eventually go away. What is the policy here on archiving talk pages? On Wikipedia we're encouraged (some might even say not allowed) to delete "legitimate" discussion (automated messages and mundane/nonsense postings don't count), which has resulted in some users (such as myself) accumulating dozens of Archive pages. Does such a requirement exist here, or can we just delete old items? I for one would be happy not to have to maintain an archive and just delete outdated material. 23skidoo 14:26, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

  • Good to know. I'm not a big fan of archiving Talk Pages because not all discussions need to be kept forever. 23skidoo 19:38, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
