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:
Try using a different browser, or adding a plugin--Safari, Chrome, Opera, and Camino all have spell-check built in; IE 7 or later can use IE7Pro (which, despite the name, is free); Firefox I think has about 30 different choices. I especially like the one in Safari and Chrome (at least on the Mac), because I can edit a page and it immediately red-underlines everything spelled wrong, not just new stuff I type.
Having spellcheck everywhere on the net instead of just the sites that add it explicitly is a great way to look smarter than you are--at least it works for me. :) --Falcotron 12:21, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
