Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Vulkanus13

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:

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 on my talk page. -- Revanvolatrelundar (Talk) 11:19, October 5, 2012

Recent edits Edit

Hi! You've been adding information to the continuity sections of Doctor Who episodes, but when you cite the reference, it needs to be italicized. You can check out Tardis:Italics for details on how to italicize titles. Thanks! Shambala108 23:35, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

BlogsEdit

Hi, blogs have been disabled on this wiki. --Tangerineduel / talk 03:05, December 24, 2012 (UTC)

Since you're new here, let me just add that you should review our Signature policy. It's really important that when you use a page that has the word "talk" or "howling" in its title, that you remember to add a signature. If you don't, people have to take an extra step or two to figure out who's left the message. Moreover, when you don't sign a post o user talk page, you are probably ensuring that there will be a delay in answering you, or that you won't get answered at all.

Director edits Edit

Hi! I've had to revert or modify many of your recent edits to directors' pages. I strongly suggest you take a look at Tardis:Use sentence case, Tardis:Tardis Manual and Tardis:Game of Rassilon rules. Thanks! Shambala108 17:14, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

OK, specifically, when you add the heading "Doctor Who Stories Directed", there are two things that need fixing. First, the "Doctor Who" needs to be italicized. Second, the rest of the line needs to be what the wiki calls sentence case, which means capitalize it as you would a sentence, in other words, "stories" and "directed" would not be capitalized in this case. If you capitalize every word in the heading, it messes things up a bit in ways I don't actually know or understand, I just know not to do it :)
As for the badge editing, it is generally not acceptable to edit only pages that can earn badges. I have seen people warned for doing this. In the case of the directors' pages, I think it's been a badge category for a while, and there's not really much more that can be added to most of the pages. When you add lists of stories directed, if it's only one or two stories, then the list isn't really necessary, as all the information is in the body of the article. Lists of three or more stories are fine.
I hope this helps and Merry Christmas! Shambala108 18:28, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Plots and summaries Edit

Sorry, it's me again! I had to remove your plot or edit summaries since they were copied from the Doctor Who Reference Guide. You can read the wiki's policy regarding copying of other works at Tardis:Plagiarism. It's better to just put the plot or summary into your own words. Thanks again! Shambala108 20:29, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

I did it because I looked at some of the other pages and I compared and they were copied word from word and I thought it was ok. From now on, I'll put it into my own words.
Yeah, it's definitely possible that there are pages out there that are copied that haven't been caught yet. If you see any more, feel free to either delete the copied content or let someone know who can do it if you aren't sure. Thanks! Shambala108 21:23, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

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!
