It's the end ...After 41 gruelling days of editing, the big editing fight for the TARDIS bag you see at the left settled into a two-person race between our newest admin, Shambala108, and our returning veteran, Skittles the hog.
At the end of the day, Skittles was just barely pipped to the post by the comparative "newbie" — but both amassed almost 4000 edits each in the first half of series 8.
Their phenomenal editing, as well as that of everyone who participated, is much appreciated. The wiki has emerged a stronger, better place for these concentrated edits. (Want details?)
... but the moment has been prepared for
Feel left out? You shouldn't! Our next contest is already under way. It started on 26 September, and will close on the Friday after the series 8 finale in November! It's another who-can-edit-most-in-the-main-namespace contest, only this time no administrative staff are eligible. This one is just for registered editors! So sign up and start editing! What's the prize, you ask? Who can say, dear reader, who can say? (Didja see what I did there? Yeah, I'm rolling my eyes, too.)
Go live with some otters
Brand new Doctor, same old rules
We define spoiler to be any information — be it narrative or behind-the-scenes — which surrounds any story in any medium that has not yet been released. It doesn't matter if the source is The Sun or the British Broadcasting Corporation — it's a violation of our policies to write about un-released stories, or the casting and crewing of those adventures.
Remember, we're not a news site. We're an encyclopaedia. Our focus is on what has already happened in the DWU, not what is to come.
In order to uphold this policy in 2014, we will occasionally have to restrict editing to only those people who have accounts. If you want to guarantee yourself the ability to edit once Peter Capaldi starts his run, we strongly recommend that you sign up for a totally free account today.
For clarity, information about any episode of the series is not allowed before roughly 9pm British time on the Saturday of transmission.
We will honour that deadline in our social media feeds, as well. And we will never give away major spoilers in social media. But if you live in, say, Alaska, yore going to be a few hours behind London. Our editing restrictions end before you will have seen the current episode. Plan accordingly.

Article of the minuteWales, but set in Italy, The Masque of Mandragora was the first story of Season 14; written by Louis Marks it featured Tom Baker as the Doctor and Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith in a confrontation with a living energy known as the Mandragora Helix. The story marked the first appearance of a radically redesigned TARDIS console room and the first televised explanation of why the Doctor and his companions always seem to encounter English language speakers.

If you're new to wikis, it might be helpful for you to take note of the concept of categories. Categories are the principal organizing tool on a wiki, allowing users to group information in ways that can ease the discovery of information. All the pages on our wiki are found, ultimately, in just four big "super categories". If this is your first visit here, please go to Floor 500 for a discussion of the way our wiki is organized. ✍
