Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Ceryu

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 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 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:

File:Ads doctor who.jpg Edit

Hi there - thanks for adding File:Ads doctor who.jpg. Where did you find it? I had a look around the Doctor Who Image Archive website, but I couldn't find the original. --Gabriel 19:33, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Preview Edit

Hey, I noticed your recents edits to the third Doctor's page were numerous. Instead of saving the page so many time, can you please use the preview button to see the changes to the page before you save it. This means both the page's history and recent changes are less clogged up. Thanks. The Thirteenth Doctor 09:07, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

PicsEdit

Hi. I've noticed you're continuing to use promotional pictures on in-universe articles. Please be aware that our Manual of Style strictly forbids this. Pictures of characters, locations, objects, races, and anything you'll encounter in articles about DWU subjects must be drawn from an actual episode or comic story.

Additionally, please do not specify the thumbnail size within articles. For instance, on Susan you went through and changed every thumb to 160px. This is unnecessary, as the default width is perfectly adequate. It also makes it difficult for us to make changes to pictures with bots, as the bot will not be expecting pics within the body of pages to have the pixel width specified. Moreover, leaving the pic width unaltered allows changes by the MediaWikia software to take effect. This can be valuable. The greater the standardization, the greater ability we have to manipulate things across thousands of pages, which just makes things easier all round. If you would like to argue why you think 160px is a preferable dimension, please take the issue up at Forum:Panopticon, so that it can be considered as a policy change. Doing it on individual pages won't achieve any lasting effect. Thanks :) CzechOut | 01:15, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Blood of the Cybermen Edit

Please do not say that the Cybermen in Blood of the Cybermen were Mondasian or Cybus. We simply do not know, so are trying to keep is as unspeculative as possible, but the note should stay on the page. Please see here for a discussion about it. --The Thirteenth Doctor 09:05, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Copying Edit

Please do not copy plots from other websites. This is plagiarism. We prefer our users to write their own version of the plot. The Thirteenth Doctor 22:46, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

Images Edit

Please remember not to use promotional images. You have been asked before, so please don't do so again. The Thirteenth Doctor 21:32, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

  • There can't be exceptions to the rules. I'm pretty sure it can't be that hard to get an image of the main character. --The Thirteenth Doctor 22:16, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Darkstar AcademyEdit

You appear to have copied the entire contents of the main page onto DarkStar Academy (audio story) page. Please don't do this. --Tangerineduel / talk 03:03, December 24, 2012 (UTC)

Talk pagesEdit

Please use article talk pages to discuss the editing of the article, not to post observations like "i didnt get it... " as you did on the Talk:Echoes of Future Past (short story) page. This page has been deleted. --Tangerineduel / talk 06:00, 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!
