Amy Pond (Ganger) Edit

I had a look at the talk page and it would seem the general consensus called for its deletion. Their reasoning was correct and the links to that page have been redirected or deleted, with the page itself deleted. Thanks for pointing it out.----Skittles the hog--Talk 08:50, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Minimum standards for articles about production personnel Edit

Heya :) Thanks for adding in new pages for behind-the-scenes personnel! Coupla points, though

We really need to have a bit more than just "<this person> was a stunt performer in Doctor Who." In a show that's nearly 50 years old, that doesn't narrow things down much. At an absolute, barebones minimum, please give the specific episodes/serials on which the person was credited. Ultimately, we'd like the articles to give some sense of the person's overall career, their importance o the production of Doctor Who, and/or the occasions on which they might have crossed paths with other Doctor Who alumni. (You might want to check out Chris Clough, June Hudson, Peter Howell, Colin Mapson, Ashley Way, Stuart Brisdon, Peter Wragg, Mike Kelt and Chris Chibnall for varying approaches of various lengths.) However, if you can't start an article with at least a list of the episodes/serials on which they worked, you don't actually have enough information to start the article at all.

Also, the standard external link for a behind-the-scenes person is their IMDB listing. I know you may have seen pre-existing articles where the IMDB listing is missing, but it's really important — especially on very hort articles — to give an IMDB link. The overwhelming majority of people articles do have IMDB listings.

You may find it easier to use the preloadable formats, rather than building a page from scratch, because the preloadables have the minimum structure already in place.

To retrofit an IMDB listing onto a page without one, just use the {{imdb name}} template.

Thanks again for your efforts, and if you need additional help, please don't hesitate to ask.

Sorry about that; I was on vacation on a slow computer and couldn't get to IMDb and was planning to return to them if I got the chance. I was basing the articles on Derek Lea and wasn't sure if I was supposed to add the episode titles or not, but now I've added them based on the "What Links Here" tool. I've tried preloadable formats before but they didn't work on my computer for some reason; I only got the infobox text at the top of the screen. Thank you, Glimmer721 17:41, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

Achievement Edit

Are you sure it has been 24 hours since it last went up? I haven't seen this fault anywhere else, so my advice would be to edit every few hours and you should get it. Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but I'm just getting use to this new feature myself.--Skittles the hog - Talk 22:07, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Badge issues Edit

Hi Glimmer. I'm the IT guy round these parts. Could you please come to chat and explain the problems you're having with the Achievements feature? Thanks

p.s. You'll find chat in the right column on every page except the main page.


Well, I guess it's not necessary for you to come to chat. Your progress in that "consecutive days edited" track begins with the time of your first edit on 29th August. That was at 1456 Hawaiian time. It is currently 1225 Hawaiian time, 4.9 days later. You must wait approximately an hour-and-a-half from now to get the badge. Just remember that your time for this badge will always be 1456 Hawaiian time.

Proper use of {{title}}Edit

Please do not use the {{title}} template to remove the disambiguation term, as you did at Missing in Action (comic story). This makes things very confusing. The template is only meant to change the style of titles (typically from regular to italic). It is not meant to actually remove a part of the title. Users need to be able to see what the page title is so that they know how to link to the page properly. Thanks :)

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!
