Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Tripodssj6

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:

Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes like this:

River Song

Hi! I'm taking this chance to discuss with you your edit of River Song. While it is true that Hitler shoots her after the TARDIS lands, and clearly you wish this noted, you fall into a common error. Unless one deliberately notes otherwise, in any narrative sentence actions take place in the order in which they are written. One does not plunk down sentences in random order: George Washington was President of the United States and fought in the French and Indian War. He died in 1797 and was born in 1732." No, you rationally place these events in their natural chronological order and the reader understands them this way. So "Later" or "after" is unnecessary. Nor is the "minutes later" -- actually, I think it's less than a minute -- of much utility given that it's all part of the same scene.

A well written article is a compromise between getting in all the necessary details -- with, hopefully, enough grace notes to make it interesting -- and a little compassion for the reader, wh may wish find a particular point and then go do something else. Although my usual style of writing is a bit more conversational than is usual in this wiki, I think that a brief style is warranted here and only if one is so terse that meaning is obscured should a bit of padding be used. Do you think that is what happens without your additions to the article?

I do wish to thank you sincerely for your helpfulness. We need people who care enough about the subject to make this wiki better. It's simply that I believe it is miscalculated in this particular case. Boblipton talk to me 13:29, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

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!
