Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Chunkyman40000

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:

Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes like this:

Screenshots

Hi, thanks making additions to the TARDIS Index File Doctor Who Wiki, when uploading screenshots please select from the licensing drop down selection (on the upload page) 'screenshots' (under TV images), this will add the screenshot template to the image page (and save other users manually adding it). Thanks. --Tangerineduel 13:50, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Again it would really save extra work if you could just select screenshots from the drop down licence menu when uploading images. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 15:58, December 28, 2009 (UTC)

Wallpapers

It would be of huge help when you are uploading wallpapers that you select 'Promotional images such as wallpaper' from the licensing drop down box, it's under 'Promotional & Merchandise'. This like I've mentioned above saves others have having to add it manually, it places the relevant copyright licensing on the image's page and puts the image in the Category:Promotional images category. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 16:02, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Images in Articles

When you upload images into Articles, please re-size them to 250px. Thanks Bigshowbower 07:09, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Just to clarify, when adding images to infoboxes they need to be as Bigshowbower has said 250px, this is the standard throughout this wiki. --Tangerineduel 14:25, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Images do not make articles

An image and infobox do not make an article. Please do not create articles relating to unreleased articles such as articles relating to The Waters of Mars. They will be deleted as they contain no information. --Tangerineduel 11:51, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

Christmas cheer

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!
