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:
Our in-universe articles are written in the past-tense as if this wiki were written from the end of the universe looking back on the source material we have. Hence everything is in the past tense, everyone (in-universe) is written in the past tense, and is effectively deceased.
Within the text of the message you left on my talk page you've already identified problems with your suggestion.
- deceased category for a time-travel related series
This wiki doesn't just cover a time travel related series, there's a lot we cover that is time travel, that isn't, and that's time travel adjacent.
- if we were to have such a category on this wiki, only the ones whose deaths were either witnessed in the series or seen as absolute (for instance Amy and Rory's)
For this we would endlessly be having discussions on what "witnessed" means and what "absolute" meant.
- when we know those characters will very most likely never be seen again.
This is a very dangerous classification for including characters in a category, as there's stories always being written and dredging up old characters to have new lives back in 1997 Jo Grant featured in the novel Genocide and at the time some thought it was unlikely she'd ever appear co-temporous again, she went on to appear in Death of the Doctor 13 years later.
- (i have seen all the new series but not the old ones yet, it's only a matter of time)
I admire your enthusiasm, but this wiki covers a huge amount more than just the new and classic series. A lot of the categorisation of articles is the work of multiple users and bots.
In your proposed category we couldn't just set a bot at it, and we'd have to have a lot of discussions about what deceased for individuals might mean.
There's also individuals with several accounts of their lives, some where they may have died and others where they did not; Ace is a fairly obvious example.
