First off, thank you for being an awesome member of the Time Turners of the T.A.R.D.I.S. community! We love all our members, and we think you're awesome. We'd love to include you on our wiki, and we need your help to make that happen!
First we'll need to take a moment to think about the content of your page.
Basically the question is this: Would you like to go by your real name or a fan name? Keep in mind that unless you're one of the Admins, on the Facebook page people will only ever see you post by whatever name your Facebook page is under, so you may want to also include your "real" name somewhere on your profile. However, since the name of your profile page is whatever name you choose, make sure it's something you want to stick with.
We have our members sort themselves into one of the four houses of Hogwarts, the school of witchcraft and wizardry from the world of Harry Potter. You can decide which house you will be a member of by taking any of a number of online quizzes, or by simply selecting a house based on which traits fit you the best:
- Gryffindor - Bravery, Chivalry, Courage, Daring, Noble
- Hufflepuff - Loyalty, Dedication, Hard Work, Fair play
- Ravenclaw - Intelligence, Wit, Wisdom, Creativity
- Slytherin - Traditionalism, Resourcefulness, Cunning, Ambition
Yeah, we're a fan site, but we also encourage some creative thought, headcanon, etc. So! What do you think you would do if you found yourself in a crossover world of Harry Potter and Doctor Who? Are you a young witch or wizard learning the magical arts? Are you a companion who is also a witch? Are you a long-lost Time Lord? Where do you see this fictionalized version of yourself in this world?
A Warning About Safety
Please play it smart with what you choose to share with the wiki. While sharing everything about yourself with a bunch of strangers can be fun, you might also unwittingly be giving away information that can be used to impersonate you. For example, remember how many accounts have "secret questions" which ask you what your mother's maiden name or the street you grew up on were?
And while our community is comprised of people who are 100% awesome, not everyone on the internet is 100% awesome, and information you post online could be used by people who don't have 100% good intentions. Be safe, be smart!
Making Your Page
Now that you've got that thinking out of the way, let's get down to brass tacks about making your profile page! First, if you haven't already, you'll need to join the site. There is a link to do so in the doobleydoo off to the left. Now in that same doobleydoo (that's a technical term by the way, doobleydoo) you'll see a "New Page" form. Enter the name you want to use and presto, it'll take you to your new page, ready to edit.
Editing Your Page
Right, so the first thing you'll want to do is copy and paste this wee little form onto the top of your page:
|||| **YOUR NAME** || || **House:** || [[[YOUR HOUSE]]] || || **Role:** || What do you do in this world? ||
Then after that…go hog wild! Post stories about yourself, write about your background, your HC, whatever! If you need help with the language of editing a wiki, read up on it over on the Syntax Page at Wikidot - though the basic editing tool provided is more than enough for most cases. If you have any questions, get in touch with The Honey Badger, she'll fix you up right proper.
Adding Your Page to Directories
Once you've made your page your own, you'll want people to find you, right? There's two places you'll want to add your page to. First, add it to The Time Turners directory. That list is alphabetized by first name (not counting words like 'The') - don't worry, if you put it in the wrong spot, we can sort you out later. Next, add it to the list of House Members on your House's page. That way your Housemates can find you!
