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! Please don't unlink red links. They are not mistakes; they are pages that just have not yet been created but are wanted. Please see Tardis:Redlinks. Thanks! Shambala108 ☎ 20:53, October 5, 2015 (UTC)
Hi! Please go easy on adding categories. Most of the categories you've added are what we call "redundant". What does that mean? Here's an example: the category "English rivers" is in the category "British rivers" which is in the category "European rivers" which is in the category "Earth rivers". Therefore, if a page is in the category "English rivers", that automatically means it is in the other categories. If you add these other categories to the page, however, it causes difficulties for some of our automated systems.
Please read more about our category system at Tardis:Categorisation, Tardis:Categories, Tardis:Beware recursion, Tardis:Category tree and Tardis:Don't over-categorise. Thanks! Shambala108 ☎ 00:53, October 7, 2015 (UTC)
Images and in-universe Edit
Thank you for your recent contributions, but could you please take a look at tardis:Images and perspective. Any images added to articles written from an in-universe perspective must be from an in-universe source (unless they're in the behind the scenes section]. We can't simply add the images from Wikipedia.--Skittles the hog - talk 11:43, October 10, 2015 (UTC)
Hi! Thanks for the image you uploaded. Unfortunately I had to delete it, because you didn't add a copyright license, and because it was square instead of widescreen. You can find a short list of the image rules at Help:Image cheat card. Thank you! P&P talk contribs 23:24, January 9, 2016 (UTC)
Recent edits Edit
Hi! I'm not sure why you are making a point to de-link BBC1 on years pages, but your editing pattern suggests that you are trying to maintain an edit a day for the Game of Rassilon. Please carefully read Tardis:Game of Rassilon rules as this kind of unconstructive editing can be considered vandalism. Thanks. Shambala108 ☎ 15:28, November 15, 2016 (UTC)
date pages Edit
Hi, please stick to the format already established on dates pages. These are done on purpose to help in any bot changes that might need to be made in the future. Thanks, Shambala108 ☎ 14:04, September 15, 2017 (UTC)
