Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark General MGD 109

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:

Thanks for becoming a member of the TARDIS crew! If you have any questions, see the Help pages, add a question to one of the Forums or ask an admin.


Rich Text Editor

May I suggest turning off the editor? Every edit you make adds a multitude of blank lines to the articles you edit. To turn it off, I would strongly recommend going to the "more" option in the upper right, choosing preferences, scroll down to "editing preferences", and turn off the "rich text editing". It does a lot of really poor formatting things to articles and makes a multitude of changes that should not be made. -- sulfur 19:52, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Edit - Doomsday

Hi


Did you leave the last comment regarding the two superclamps? I've responded if you did and were interested in why.

You New Page

I like the idea that you have made a new page for Discontinuty, the only thing is: I created one in the past and got it deleted, as I felt the page would have gone massive. I would recommend that you highlight that the page is for just for Highlighting the mistake and use the discussion page on that for the resolution and ideas why. You would also need to rename it to Highlight its Doctor Who Television Discontinuity, and then create a pages for Torchwood Television Discontinuty, Sarah Jane Adventures Television Discontinuity and one for Audio (these can all go on one page), the same with Prose and comic strips Hope this helps!!!! But please also remember to cast your vote in the forum page and beware the page maybe deleted by an Admin Mini-mitch 20:45, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Please don't take my recent tagging of the discon article as a personal attack on you. I dislike putting a delete tag on an article that someone has made clear they're editing by using the inuse tag. As the creator of the inuse template on this wiki, I generally stay well away from any page that employs that tag.
However, as I made clear on the talk page of your article, this idea had already been floated and deleted by admins (as Mini-mitch confirms, above). The entire underlying concept of the article is flawed, and no amount of work will improve it. I'm honestly just trying to save you wasting your time. As you make clear in your last revision, you intend for it to be a "semi-discussion page". Well, that sort of thing doesn't belong at all within the main article space. That's the explicit point of removing the discon sections from articles, in the first place. Why would we go through all the work of removing all this stuff from over 200 pages just to have it recreated elsewhere in the main article space? The article is a fine idea for a thread at Howling:The Howling, but it has no business in the main, encyclopedic area of the wiki. Again, I mean you no personal offense, but am merely trying to ensure that things go in the appropriate places. Please also see Forum:Discontinuity revisited. CzechOut | 21:48, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Tenth Planet

I am undoing you edits and they conflict with the Manual of Style - please read this, which states that a reliable source must be used when added answers to these questions. Mini-mitch 23:12, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Warning

As the above editors have noted there has been ample discussion of this, there is even the beginning of a discontinuity-like page system at the Howling see Theory:Doctor Who television discontinuity and plot holes, it currently has the first two seasons linked away from the page as a proof of concept.

Further undoing of edits related to discontinuity on pages edited over to the 'Production errors' format will be viewed as vandalism and you will be blocked from editing for a period upwards of 2 weeks. --Tangerineduel 03:40, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

capitalize names

Please remember to capitalize the names of people, such as Doctor, and the names of species', such as Time Lords. The Thirteenth Doctor 12:45, August 5, 2010 (UTC)


Delete tag

Do not remove a delete tag without a proper reason. Removing delete tags that give a reason for the page to be deleted without giving a reason can be considered vandalism. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked. The Thirteenth Doctor 13:34, August 5, 2010 (UTC)


Firstly, the page is much more like a category than an article. Secondly, a similar category was recently deleted. Finally, it is debatable what "godlike" means. Personally, I'd consider an ability to regenerate and have psychic abilities god like, which would make Time Lords god like, where as others would not. God like is a term which depends on your view. To small insects, we may seem godlike, but to ourselves we are not. The Thirteenth Doctor 13:43, August 5, 2010 (UTC)


You can continue to edit it, but the delete tag stays on it. When an admin sees the delete tag, they will judge the page to see whether it should stay or be deleted. In its current state, it will be deleted for the reasons above (which I will be putting on the article's talk page), unless you can give an argument on the talk page to convince an admin to keep it there. The Thirteenth Doctor 13:51, August 5, 2010 (UTC)


I cannot think of any way it could be kept. If you strongly wish to keep it, you could always place it into your username space, edit it to your satisfaction then see if it is acceptable for the mainspace. I would also advise that you start a forum in the panopticon to see if any other users can think of a way to work the page. Those are probably your best options. If you wish it to be moved into your username space, let me know and I'll do it before the page gets deleted. The Thirteenth Doctor 17:51, August 5, 2010 (UTC)


Your user name space is where you make pages under your user name. So for that page, it would be moved to User:General MGD 109/Powerful and godlike beings and races. That way it is not in the mainspace. --The Thirteenth Doctor 18:25, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Powerful Gods

You did not create a forum page in the Panopticon as I suggested. If you don't, no one will know that the page exists. Create a page there and explain why you want the page to become a main page. Then people will discuss the pros and cons of it. The Thirteenth Doctor 11:43, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

So you have. My mistake. Tangerinduel has replied saying that their reasons are the same as on the original page's talk page. The Thirteenth Doctor 16:17, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Capitalize names

I have asked you before to capitalize names. Please do so. Also, please check spelling and grammar before submitting and if you are going to edit one page many times, please make use of the preview button so as not to clog up the history page. The Thirteenth Doctor 16:41, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Even in forum pages, it is important to captitalize names. Please remember this. The Thirteenth Doctor 20:51, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Hey

All your information referred to the personal skills of the Doctor, not Gallifreyans in general.----Skittles the hog--Talk 17:13, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, but it has to specified as a general Gallifreyan skill. Just because some people can run really fast, doesn't mean everyone can. Also, please make sure you're using correct English. Your messages are hard to understand. Thanks----Skittles the hog--Talk 17:33, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

Unless you have a source that says "Gallifreyans have superior hand-to-eye coordination", you cannot put this in the article. It's just your own theory.----Skittles the hog--Talk 17:41, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

Categories and sources

When creating pages please remember to add categories and add the source from which the page came from. If you do not do this, your page could be deleted. --Revan\Talk 10:59, August 28, 2011 (UTC)

Discontinuity page

The easiest way to create a discontinuity page that links correctly is to add the {{discontinuity}} template to the story page, it sits under the production errors sub-heading, see Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (TV story)#Production errors. Using the template will create the correct link and avoid the accidental adding of capitals in the title or any other errors that can creep in. --Tangerineduel / talk 05:44, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Hey! Do you speak Hebrew? ZivKarni3 20:54, May 4, 2013 (UTC)

It's just, when you tried to complete the word "Horro" the Horror, you accidentally type a letter in another language - ר - which is the parallel note to R on the keyboard, so I thought, you know.

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!
