Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Tybort

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:

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.

All caps Edit

Seems to be caused by PRESS STATEMENT, which likely doesn't need to be in all caps. Filter is functioning correctly.

Wikipediainfo Edit

Hey, I notice you used {{wikipediainfo}} when you created Richelle Mead. As the template instructions indicate, we don't really want to use {{wikipediainfo}} on real world pages. Think of it as a way to give our readers real world information without violating T:NO RW — not as a substitute for writing a real world article. Thanks!

Plagiarism question Edit

Re your question at thread:142060:

It's my opinion that when it comes to plagiarism, better safe than sorry. If there is a substantial amount of text that seems to have been lifted from another site, it's gotta go. I think what has happened with some of the older stories is that it was copied word for word, but over the years numerous editors have added and subtracted text, but it's still basically plagiarism.

If you're up for rewriting any of the plot summaries, go for it. I don't want to cause you extra work, but I think in the long run it's less work to rewrite than to check sections back and forth and correct here and there. Don't forget to put an "in use" tag if you feel you need it. Thanks a bunch! Shambala108 23:34, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

Torchwood Edit

I wonder if you could do me a favor. I was looking through the plot summary for Day One, and there's a scene where the rest of the Torchwood crew is discussing what they know about Jack. There is a sentence in the middle of this section that says: "Ianto think she's CIA." I haven't seen this episode, so I don't know if Ianto is talking about Jack and it's a typo, or if he's talking about Gwen, who is referred to in the previous sentence. Do you have any idea which is correct? Thanks! Shambala108 17:26, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I went ahead and fixed it, and if you or someone else later find that it's wrong, it can be fixed. Shambala108 18:14, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Something about preloads Edit

Didn't you sometime, somewhere, within the last month say something about preloads needed to be fixed? I was looking around for that comment today but couldn't find it. If I've got the wrong man, please forgive me. But if I've got the right one, please jog my memory.
czechout@fandom    19:36: Fri 11 Oct 2013

That must be it! Thanks!
czechout@fandom    15:18: Sat 12 Oct 2013

Help Edit

Hey, can I prevail upon you for a little bit of immediate help. Any chance that you could do the crew lists for the last four eps of 7b today? I know, I know: it's my own fault for not fixing {{wales crew}} sooner, but if you could help with that, I'd be mighty appreciative. If you can't, though, lemme know.

Tomato check tracking Edit

Well, I put this in the thread, but it's really hard to read it there. I thought you might like to see it at full width. This chart tells you which episodes you don't need to worry about anymore, as they've already been touched by two editors.

Chat Edit

When you have a moment, could you please stop by chat? Thanks :) (It's nothing bad, don't worry.)

Kath Braxton? Edit

I guess I don't understand why the lead-in to the Tenth Doctor article, the identity of his incarnation, depends on the attestation of a minor character from a comic that a lot of people on here probably haven't read. Clara specified that her Doctor was the Eleventh Doctor, but if I added that, I'm willing to bet it would be deleted within a day. TARDIStraveler 22:25, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Cleanup edits Edit

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that your recent many cleanup edits have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. I noticed that you've been concentrating a lot on stuff that relates to 2005-Doctor Who. That's probably going to help with the Rotten Tomatoes stuff. Thanks for all your hard work! Shambala108 01:10, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

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!


SOTO nomination Edit

The admin nomination for User:SmallerOnTheOutside is drawing swiftly to a close. Did you have any thoughts on it? Please go here if you do.

Capitol Edit

Why you add my edit in capitol it was correct watch the end of time you see--Doctor other 15:31, February 17, 2014 (UTC)

Theory page Edit

So sorry but you edit on Theory:Timeline Last Great Time War unreasonable--Doctor other 20:36, March 2, 2014 (UTC)

How to delete pictures Edit

Can you show me how ı delete a picture ?--Doctor other 13:19, March 3, 2014 (UTC)

The War Edit

Cult of the Black Sun (created by faction paradox) and the Order of the Black Sun are the same ? If they are war between order and the time lord is part of THE WAR.--Doctor other 00:55, March 6, 2014 (UTC)

Deleted images Edit

I just wanted to say thanks for tagging all those images for deletion. I think I got all of them. Thanks! Shambala108 16:23, March 6, 2014 (UTC)

Silents Vs. the Silent Edit

The correct plural form of Silent is The Silent. There is no 'S'. If you are referring to the religious order, "The Silence" is proper. - Masterpwn (Previously unsigned)

Season four category Edit

I just wanted to thank you for the edits you made removing the "characters of season four" category. I knew there was something wrong with it, but couldn't place why, so I asked the user to hold off creating any more. I've now asked him/her not to continue the project (using your edit summary as the reason), and I deleted the one category that's been created so far. Shambala108 01:37, June 3, 2014 (UTC)

I need your help understanding your reason Edit

"The Marilyn Monroe stuff is edging too much into T:NO RW. I don't think the story says anything other than "woman standing with Eleven, Sinatra and Santa Claus in that photograph"," was what you said when you removed that section I put on the Model page.

I'm sorry, but did you seriously do that without reading the links I connected it to at all? Because it appears so. Yes. That's a bit bunt and could be considered impolite, but I would appreciate an explanation for removing my work. An explanation that proves you looked at the links I connected to the paragraph for the convenience of readers, like you were.

In the episode A Christmas Carol, we see the Doctor leave the party with Marilyn. At the end of the episode, Rory answers a phone call from her, and the Doctor tells her to tell her the chapel wasn't ligament. Here's straight out of the episode article (Which I had a link to in the bit I posted): "A few minutes later, the Doctor finds the couple kissing passionately, but impatiently requests to leave, as he has accidentally become engaged to Marilyn Monroe; he leaves with her nevertheless." At the end of the episode, "Rory pops out of the TARDIS, saying he answered the phone; Marilyn has called the Doctor. The Doctor tells Rory to inform Marilyn that he will call her back, "and that was never a real chapel"."

And, may I ask what this picture you speak of is? I don't remember it.

And please, don't get me wrong. I am upset (who wouldn't be if some of their hard work was taken down with a reason they didn't understand.), but I still have an open mind. From what I know, and the information I've received, I can only conclude that you were not aware to what I was referring. So here I am, trying to explain.

You are more experienced at wiki-ing than me, so I am asking for your help in understanding. But I like to think I am a hardcore Whovian when it comes to the reboot series. I think I know what I'm talking about with this episode.

Will you do me a favor and read Marilyn Monroe and A Christmas Carol (TV story)? Then, will you please reconsider removing that section?

Thank you for your time, and again, I'm sorry for sounding so blunt.

--Rebazim 17:31, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Alright. I guess I can accept that....--Rebazim 19:31, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Images Edit

Those page images are taken. Put yours somewhere else or find empty pages. --Buckimion 02:20, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you... Edit

... for your work about the Black Sun War pages! Especially for the missing ones. --- HarveyWallbanger 21:35, December 9, 2014 (UTC)


Crap! Sorting it now. Thanks for letting me know. :) --Revan\Talk 12:54, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Past tense in direct quotationsEdit

Hey there. Regarding your edits to the quote in the lead for Dalek, do you know if it is the policy at this project to alter direct character quotations into the past tense? I have looked through 6~7 MoS/policy articles and could not find a direct answer, so I'm uncertain. Either way, this line: "[i]nside that shell, there [was] a creature born to hate, whose only thought [was] to destroy everything and everyone that [wasn't] a Dalek, too." is very brutal to read. If it isn't policy, are you okay with me changing it back to a direct quote? And if it is policy to force verbatim character lines to be in the past tense, are you okay with having this paraphrased? Blue Rook 00:31, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

Re: The Eye of Torment Edit

No problem. The only reason I knew what to do is that I've seen it used in source mode before. Previously, I had tried using the "|" and it didn't work. Shambala108 15:35, January 13, 2015 (UTC)

Andy-Frankham Allen Edit

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I changed the Andy-Frankham Allen page you created to a redirect, as he had previously written stories under the name of Andy Frankham. The only reason I know this is because he wrote some Short Trips stories, which is an area of the wiki I focus on. Thanks! Shambala108 01:13, February 11, 2015 (UTC)

Companion Chronicle numbering Edit

Hey Tybort. I just want to call your attention to Talk:The Sleeping Blood (audio story). Thanks. P&P talk contribs 16:48, June 4, 2015 (UTC)

Colour in B&WEdit

We found out the colour of Daleks, the Doctor's eyes and the ring from seeing behind-the-scenes photographs that were taken in colour. Plus, with a keen eye and enough experience, one can see through the black-and-white format to deduce the colour of things.BananaClownMan 13:13, August 17, 2015 (UTC)

Galleries Edit

Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the edit at Apology cue cards. I knew there was a policy against galleries, but I could not for the life of me remember where it was. (I forgot to check the Help namespace.) Shambala108 23:54, October 4, 2015 (UTC)

Leamington Spa Lifeboat Museum Edit

One of the series 2 websites was the "Leamington Spa Lifeboat Museum". It was heavily implied to be a Torchwood Base. The game "Security Bot" takes place inside the base. The website is now gone, but the game can still be played on the official Dr. Who website. The preceding unsigned comment was added by TheChampionOfTime (talk • contribs) .

He explicitly said 2 billion years and since Rigsy was alive around this time...

Talk:Clara Edit

P&P got to it before me. But thanks for pointing it out!

4.5 Billion Edit

Clearly you can't measure the doctor's age by his body. He regenerates often, and teleports often. If you were to do that, he would be a few days old when he finally got to Gallifrey. Is the age the Doctor states correct? No, the Doctor lies. His age is measured by his timestream and consciousness. When the previous bodies were destroyed he got to keep the memories as they were still part of his timestream. They took a while to integrate, but they eventually did, just like it can take you a while to remember things when you wake up in the morning, or when he regenerates. So then those sections of his timestream weren't erased from his timeline even though he got a body that had been restored to a point before those events occurred. He lived them, and remembered them. They are part of his timeline. Thus, he is now 4.5 billion years old. According to who? According to logic. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sadanyagci (talk • contribs) .

Zygon Edit

It did say that the staff seen were Zygons, I can't remember how but it did pal. DENCH-and-PALMER 08:52, January 11, 2016 (UTC)

A Christmas Carol Edit

A Christmas Carol did have a brief scene on Earth - the Doctor takes young Kazran to Hollywood and accidentally marries Marilyn Monroe. JagoAndLitefoot 14:44, January 13, 2016 (UTC)

School ReunionEdit

"The contradiction is all of School Reunion." Because in Dreamland and School Reunion Sarah's apparently not seen the Doctor since The Hand of Fear? Putting "according to one account" on every encounter of theirs back to The Five Doctors doesn't make sense. "According to one account" only works where it's obvious what the contradiction is. So Dreamland and School Reunion could have "according to one account, Sarah and the Doctor hadn't met since she stopped traveling with him.", and it'll make sense that the contradiction is with all of the earlier listed encounters. Fwhiffahder 21:38, January 15, 2016 (UTC)

Fat Controller Vandalism Edit

Its not vandalism to say the Controller is fat - its what he'she's called -- to me 13:48, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

September 14th Edit

What year -- to me 13:50, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

Spoilers and all that Edit

Doesn't DWM 501 come out tomorrow? It sure isn't available for download yet. I get the excitement of a new companion and I also get that within 24 hours anyone will be able to read the new adventures of the Twelfth Doctor and {name removed due to spoilers}, but doesn't this violate Tardis:Spoiler policy? I mean, at this point it would be rather silly to undo all of your edits, but please don't make a page for the comic that hasn't been officially released yet! C o T 15:22, June 29, 2016 (UTC)

Hey, I don't think you need to worry about the spoiler policy, though I've been wrong before and User:CzechOut will certainly correct me. I have to apologize for any concern you had because I'm the one who deleted the original creation of the article, and as one of my reasons I listed that it was a spoiler. Actually, my main concern was that the editor had failed to use the proper template (or any template, actually), so it was easier to delete than clean up.
If, however, there is a spoiler on the cover, if you could help me by keeping an eye open for any uploading of the cover image, I would appreciate it. Thanks! Shambala108 03:13, June 30, 2016 (UTC)

Season 6's recurring monsterEdit

I saw you'd commented that Season 6 did not have a recurring monster from the classic series and so I'd just like to remind you about the Cybermats. --TazminDaytime 21:33, July 30, 2016 (UTC)TazminDaytime
