Over the next month or so, the front page will undergo a face lift which we hope will make our content super easy to find! And we'll be finishing up all those little formatting issues that are lingering after our 1Q 2013 overhaul to make the site more accessible to those with visual acuity issues. By June, all those colour issues that are currently driving you crazy — like illegible headers on some tables — will be cleared up. If you do see things that need addressing, please help us out by noting them at the bulletin board of colour problems that need fixing.
We also invite you to stop by the Panopticon right now to participate in a number of important discussions that will change the wiki.
While the front page is under construction, though, we thought we'd resurrect a bit of interactivity and give you a chance to give some fun feedback. So here's a poll for you, made all the more topical by May's stunning finalé, The Name of the Doctor. Let's see how all of Doctor Who's "women of mystery" stack up against each other!

"Kang" was the name taken by young women living in Paradise Towers.

Kangs competed against one another, with the ultimate objective being to enter another group's brainquarters. Despite, this they never harmed one another. The Kangs were disliked by the Caretakers as they frequently created wallscrawls. This led to them being nicknamed "wallscrawlers". The Kangs also performed various dances round certain structures. They carried arrow guns as their primary weapon, but never used them against one another. Read more. ✍Don't like this article? Reload the page for another one!
Quote of the minute
Mike Yates: Sorry, Doctor. I’m supposed to have permission from the Brig before I leave the country, let alone before I leave the planet. I’d love to come along, but I think I’ll have –
Jo Grant: Oh, go on. Mike. Didn’t you say you wanted to see the wonders of the universe?
Mike Yates: (hesitantly) Are you sure this is quite safe, Doctor? There won’t be any complications? I need to report for duty at six o’clock tomorrow morning, you know.
Third Doctor: Complications? My dear chip, I’ve no idea what you mean! Don’t worry, I’ve checked the coordinates three times. Nothing can possibly go wrong.
Do you know your assistant directors? Sure, you might be able to rattle off directors — but how's your knowledge of the people who are really on the front lines of Doctor Who production. Read more about the working class stiffs who go by the enigmatic titles of 1st AD, 2nd AD and 3rd AD.
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. ✍
You aren't limited to English if you're looking for Doctor Who content on Wikia! There are wikis with more than 30 pages in the following languages:
In addition, there are several wikis which have been created, but which have no more than 29 pages of content.
If you are a fluent writer in one of these languages, we encourage you to join one of these wikis. If it's inactive, we urge you to formally adopt it. Just fill out the Special:Contact form on that wiki and request administrator status.
