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:
Hi :) We're glad you've been enjoying the discussions module. However, please bear in mind that the same rules that govern the wiki as a whole also apply there.
You may not ever, under any circumstances, give advice on how to illegally obtain episodes of Doctor Who, either physically or digitally. You've at least twice recommended going to sites that do not have the right to stream Doctor Who. Please just play it safe: avoid answering questions about getting episodes of Doctor Who in the wake of its departure from Netflix and Hulu.
We don't allow spoilers except in two places. Please read T:SPOIL in its entirety. You cannot even announce casting or crewing of yet-to-be-broadcast stories. Also, we strongly frown upon links to doctorwhotv.co.uk, because it's spoileriffffffic. I've had to delete a post of yours just today for these two reasons.
Again, we're very glad that you enjoy this new product, and we hope that you continue enthusiastically using it. But please remember that Doctor Who fans have a wide range of opinions about what counts as a spoiler and what doesn't. Believe me, we've lost editors who were accidentally exposed to spoilers no different from the one you posted. Therefore, after a good deal of discussion back during Matt Smith's first year, we adopted a strict, but very clear, definition of spoilers that everyone can understand. Just to make sure that the widest possible range of people can enjoy the wiki, please adhere to that definition.
Your talk page
Like I said already, when you ask a huge amount of questions about small details that are more or less pointless that also could mean pretty much anything, people won't be interested in discussing them. Answering a large amount of small questions at once is very tiresome, I think you would be better off if you used the wiki as a resource and your own opinion to come to conclusions for your particularly small questions. --TheOriginalDoctor ☎ 03:03, December 16, 2016 (UTC)
In 'The Krotons', the Doctor's TARDIS vanished when the Krotons attempted to destroy it and then reappered; due to the HADS. If they tried to destroy it with the HADS off, would it still be there and not disappearing? (http://tardis.wikia.com/d/p/2919060040239286061) Doctor 25 ☎ 17:17, January 16, 2017 (UTC)
Hi there. Normally, I don't question what moderators do, but I was curious as to why my discussion about "The Doctor being Ginger?" was deleted. (if you didn't do it, perhaps you can direct me to the one who did?) I didn't think that I violated any wiki rules and it's not a secret anymore that Capaldi is leaving.
If that's the reason, then I understand. I'd like to try again, changing the wording to not violate wiki or TARDIScore rules.
Hey, Thank you for contacting me. I deleted the thread because it referred to a certain spoiler. You are correct that it isn't a secret but it is still a spoiler here on the Tardis Data Core and thus not allowed. I'm not sure rewording your post would stop a spoiler, because even if the post didn't refer to the spoiler it would still most definitely cause users to talk about the spoiler in the thread. The question you asked is nearly impossible to discuss without also discussing the spoiler and users are bound to bring it up in a thread like that. The spoiler policy is pretty strict here. Again, thanks for taking the time to ask me this. if you have any further questions then please fell free to ask. --TheOriginalDoctor ☎ 21:07, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
Hi, I noticed that on the Tardis drop-down tab characters - The Doctor - there is no link to the Third, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Thirteenth Doctors. Is there a reason for this besides saving space?
