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:
- the listing of all our help, policy and guideline pages
- our Manual of Style
- our image use policy
- our user page policy
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:
DO NOT remove large sections from articles without discussion on the talk page first. if you continue to do so you wil be blocked. Revanvolatrelundar 20:01, September 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Actually, ignore that warning. I mean, still don't do it, but after revising the edit I see why you removed it, because it was a duplicate section. When things like that happen, and it's a large section, remember to put that fact in the edit summary section, otherwise it simply seems as though you are removing a large section of perfectly good information.

Messing up articals
- Please do not tamper with articals making them look like they are if you press the "Source" button, as that could be counted as vandalism. June 4, 2011 TommyZoom23
Melody and River
Please do not change the whole River page to Melody. This was her name at birth, and this wikia calls articles by what they are called currently ie. The Doctor instead of theta sigma, The Monk over Mortimus. --Revan\Talk 18:59, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

The Doctor image
Please do not change the image on The Doctor page. The image that is currently on there (the five doctors version) was voted by the community to be used as the main image. Please see Talk:The Doctor for more details. Thanks. MM/Want to talk? 16:54, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
Hi! Regarding your recent edits at Jenna-Louise Coleman, I suggest you take some time to read through the wiki's spoiler policy. The Series 7 page is the only one where you can post information about the upcoming Christmas special and future episodes of series 7. Thanks! Shambala108 ☎ 02:44, October 17, 2012 (UTC)
