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
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
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, Nice Doctor Who Stories, Have You Seen Mine Yet? From User:Tardis934
Template:Signatures/The evil dude - IssuesEdit
Hi. Templates is not the correct place for your signature addition, if you just want a picture added to your signature take a look at Forum:Images to signatures. (I'll leave your page there for now but may delete it in the future). --Tangerineduel 05:10, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
- Could you explain the necessity for a userpage redirect (especially one with nothing linking to it)?--Tangerineduel 18:13, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
Revert if you like, but i only did as part of an experiment on another wiki. I don't have time to explain, but revert it if you like. The evil dudeArnie 18:16, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
SciFi Wiki Edit
Hello, I'm an admin on the SciFi wiki and I was wondering if you could help out there (we're kinda small) or suggest a way to get people from this wiki to help I would be grateful.--UESPA 03:00, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Hey, most of them are a good idea. However while just including the TV series stories makes them smaller it doesn't really encompass all the stories that they've appeared in. Be it in the novels, Big Finish audios, anthology/short stories, comics etc (though as I've said this might make them too big). Also you should also consider the possibility of overkill as there will possibly be more than one navigation plate at the bottom of some of these articles. --Tangerineduel 16:15, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
IP 18.104.22.168 Edit
a certain indevidual with this IP has been inserting false info about the christmas speciel every time it deleted he creates the same article again hes pissing people of IMO this jerk should be blocked Chip2007
Additions from Visual Dictionary and othersEdit
While I don't want to discourage you from creating pages. There should be a limit to how many things are written verbatim from the various reference sources available. Especially in the case of your two most recent additions Amaryll (planet) and Phryne where there doesn't appear to be anything linking it to Doctor Who media (TV, novels, audio dramas, comic strips etc), except its appearance in one of the new ref books. Thanks --Tangerineduel 16:01, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
- Yes...and no. More so for the hardly any info and that it being mentioned solely in the book. I'm sure there's plenty of things in there that are related to other things within the Doctor Who universe. But there's also stuff there that isn't, it's those pages which I'd discourage so we don't end up with more Orphaned pages (pages that have no links going to them). --Tangerineduel 16:34, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
When placing a prop delete, could you leave what's on the page (unless it's offensive vandalism) as it means admins can avoid the extra couple of steps to look at the history of the article. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 14:23, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Weeping Angels Edit
Thanks for moving it, I wasn't sure which section it should go under! I'm afraid I don't tend to frequent wikis much, so forgive me if I do get some things wrong =) Forgotmytea talk 20:48, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
Assistance with a discussion on the forumsEdit
Hi, I'd value your input/discussion on this topic in the forums Forum:Italics or Quotation marks?, I'm not comfortable making a ruling solely based on a running conversation between myself and CzechOut and would value other regular editors' points of view on this issue. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 06:45, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
