aka Ian Sylvester

Hello, The Nth Doctor here. Anything you want to talk about? Feel free to ask!The Nth Doctor 22:34, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark The Nth Doctor

Thanks for your recent 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 Fandom 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 use another form of English, 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:

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:

Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes like this:

Thanks for becoming a member of the TARDIS crew! If you have any questions, see the Help pages, add a question to one of the Forums or ask an admin.


The Twin DilemmaEdit

HI, thanks for your recent additions. While it isn't against our manual of style it is preferable not to copy large swathes of text from wikepdia we're seeking to create a unique separate encyclopaedia (more info see Tardis:Manual of style#Use of material from Wikipedia). Thanks. --Tangerineduel 05:38, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

Thank You Edit

Thank You so much for fixing World War Three I did exactly what you did but seemed to make it worse so I don't know what happened I usually know what to do but like I said for some strange reason didn't work. Thanks again. -- Michael Downey 20:46, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah that's what I did but like I said for some reason just didn't work. So thanks anyway. -- Michael Downey 20:56, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Just a quick noteEdit

Just a quick note on the Medusoids article you recently created. Remember to write all in-universe articles in past tense (were rather than are). Also when adding the species stub use {{species stub}} rather than just adding the category (as the template adds a tag alerting that it is a stub as well as adding the category). Thanks. --Tangerineduel 16:12, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

Roman Rory and DoctorWhoTV Edit

After your edit to Cold Blood, I took a quick look at http://doctorwhotv.co.uk/pandorica-pics-new-info-6135.htm and http://doctorwhotv.co.uk/cold-blood-spoilers-6148.htm and couldn't find anything about Rory in a gladiator outfit. Also, from what I can tell, the entire TARDIS crew may be visiting Roman Britain, so there could be other reasons for Rory to be in a Roman getup. Also, I'm not sure what a gladiator uniform is. Can you put in a reference? (If you don't know how to use the ref tag, just add the link on the Talk page and I can do it.) --Falcotron 00:21, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

It sounds like they're discussing the same picture of Rory in Auxilliary armor that I read about elsewhere, not in a gladiator outfit. Which makes more sense. Anyway, thanks for adding the link; very nice! --Falcotron 06:50, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Godmothers Edit

I am well aware of the fact that Godmother's are USUALLY named when a child is BAPTISED(not born) and a)Time Lords(or Gallifreyans) are NOT human so they might have a different custom. b)Since Godmother is something of a religious connotation it is entirely possible, perhaps even probable, that Time Lords do not have the custom at all, since they are portrayed as being rather unreligious. c)As I noted he travels around a lot so it is entirely possible that he encountered some culture with the practice and was 'adopted' by someone as a godson(looked up Jonathan Frakes and Alfre Woodward, she has apparently declared herself his godmother, so it can happen later even on earth)Doorofnight 03:22, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Doctor Who Answers Edit

Are you by any chance the same user on Doctor Who Answers? The Thirteenth Doctor 21:17, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

  • Well, I'm an admin on it, and I need someone I can trust to help me clean up the site. Would you be interested in being an admin? Let me know and we can discuss how to improve the site further. The Thirteenth Doctor 09:45, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

silurian Edit

i have got a good picture i was going to upload on the silurian page but has been blocked, the image is where the silurians are about to execute the tardis team


so can you please email me at spyro1666@yahoo.com

Problem report #35470Edit

Hi, regarding the problem report you left for Scooti Manista. It's better to leave notes like this on the article's talk page. Only admins can deal with the problem reports, so it's generally best to leave a note on the article's talk page that way everyone who's editing the page can see what the issues are with the page.

If you come across a page with major issues leave one of the cleanup tags on the article or in the case of vandalism leave a message on an admin's talk page. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 14:47, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Sheild gunEdit

Thanks for spotting the spelling error "sheild gun". I've made a new page with corrected spelling, but can't delete the original. Can you? Dragonmaster79 20:26, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism Edit

Is there away to block articles from all editing Joshoedit 01:57, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Hunters of the Burning Stone Edit

Is there any chance that you could supply images from Hunters of the Burning Stone? It would be extremely helpful. If you can, there are a few specifics that I need. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 01:47, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

I've tried, there are no sites that have any posted. (Unless you have any)
If you have a camera that would have a fine affect... But if you can't that's fine. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 03:39, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

Day counterEdit

I assume you're talking about the "edits since joining this wiki" edit count. It's appears to be working now.

With future issues (and there will be other problems) I've found it's best to wait 24 hours before worrying about it. Wikia sometimes just hiccups, sometimes they push out updates and that throws spanners into the works. These things usually rectify themselves within 24 hours or so.

If it doesn't then you can contact Wikia using the Special:Contact/general form and they usually pretty quick with getting back to you. --Tangerineduel / talk 14:39, February 28, 2013 (UTC)

With respect to the day counting issue you posted at user talk:Mini-mitch, your contribution history clearly shows that you had a 24h19m gap between 28 Feb and 1 March. You effectively missed the day of 1 March. There is no way to remedy this situation. However, you are in a good position to now reap more points out of this particular editing track. You can once again win points for the various lower badges — something you can't do once you've won the top prize for 365 days of consecutive editing.

Violation of spoiler policy Edit

Because images appear on every page, by virtue of the photos module, you are forbidden to upload images of anything from stories which have not yet broadcast. Thanks for just spoiling everyone about the existence of certain characters in the upcoming series by virtue of your now-deleted image. Don't do anything of this kind again or you will be summarily blocked for no less than six months. Please re-read T:SPOIL and particularly T:OFF REL for our definition of spoiler.

Moreover, your image violated the general guidelines at T:ICC in other ways. Not only did it fail to have a widescreen orientation, it was also not an in-universe image. Please read T:IUI.

Christmas cheer Edit

Happy holidays!

As this fiftieth anniversary year comes to a close, we here at Tardis just want to thank you for being a part of our community — even if you haven't edited here in a while. If you have edited with us this year, then thanks for all your hard work.

This year has seen an impressive amount of growth. We've added about 11,000 pages this year, which is frankly incredible for a wiki this big. November was predictably one of the busiest months we've ever had: over 500 unique editors pitched in. It was the highest number of editors in wiki history for a year in which only one programme in the DWU was active. And our viewing stats have been through the roof. We've averaged well over 2 million page views each week for the last two months, with some weeks seeing over 4 million views!

We've received an unprecedented level of support from Wikia Staff, resulting in all sorts of new goodies and productive new relationships. And we've recently decided to lift almost every block we've ever made so as to allow most everyone a second chance to be part of our community.

2014 promises to build on this year's foundations, especially since we've got a full, unbroken series coming up — something that hasn't happened since 2011. We hope you'll stick with us — or return to the Tardis — so that you can be a part of the fun!

Mammals Edit

Hey, could you please stop adding pages to category:Mammals? Per T:RECURSION, you should put an article only on the most specific category possibly, and not the more general ones that the smaller ones branch from. Fox, to take a recent example, is already in the category Canids, which is a subcategory of Earth mammals, which is in turn a subcategory of Mammals. T:RECURSION explains just why: to save bots like mine a whole lot of trouble. Thanks. --SOTO 01:20, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
