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:
- the listing of all our help, policy and guideline pages
- our Manual of Style
- our image use policy
- our user page policy
- a list of people whose job it is to help you
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:
Your input is needed!

The Doctor imageEdit
Hi, before changing such a prominent image on a main article like that it is nessecary for you to understand the policies in use on this wiki. See Tardis:Help for a full list.
For instance the image you uploaded was made up of promotional images, only screenshots or in-universe images can be used on an in-universe article.
Also you should look at the talk page of prominent pages like The Doctor as there may be a discussion in progress which explains the decision or the process that was taken to arrive at the image see Talk:The Doctor for a discussion concerning the image and why a comprehensive image is not the best path forward for use in the infobox. Thanks. --Tangerineduel / talk 15:23, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
Brax and K9 Edit
The problem with this event is that it is never actually depicted, and Brax is a known liar. I'm not quite sure whether it makes a great deal of sense to put it in all those articles you mentioned — I kind of think it only belongs in the article K9 — but wherever you put it, you need to point out that Brax is an unreliable source. Thus:
Something like that.
Ben 10: Professor Paradox Edit
You are hereby banned for your upload of two images from episodes that had not aired at the time of upload. This is a violation of T:SPOIL. Your ban is permanent because one of the images came from an upcoming anniversary special. You were warned, but you did not heed the warnings posted here and here in such a way that you would have had to have ignored prominent alerts urging you to go read those messages. Moreover, your first edit on this wiki was about a year and a half ago, giving you adequate time to have read T:SPOIL, especially given that this very page contains yet another explanation that "spoilers aren't cool".
Christmas cheer Edit
Promotional images Edit
Hi! What is the purpose of the promotional images you uploaded to the wiki? As noted earlier on your talk page, you can't use them for in universe articles because they aren't screenshots, and you can't use them on any other pages because they are not widescreen. Thanks.
