Join Our Doctor Who Forum Today
As most of you know, way back before Christmas we extended the news site and opened up our Doctor Who forum as a way to let the fans discuss all the news and speculate on what's to come in the worlds of Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
The forum took off and became more popular than any of us expected and though we havent reached the dizzying heights of some of the bigger and more well known forums on the web, we have created a thriving and vibrant community for fans new and old alike.
The continued growth has seen our small moderating team of 5 extended to eleven, as well as three sub moderators, to help manage the amount of posts and threads that are created daily, and our 8 little topic sections have grown and expanded so much that we now have nearly 40 different areas burting with conversation.
Within the forum we have sections dedicated specifically to every Doctor Who spin off as well as several for the main show itself, a section for news and spoilers for the upcoming series', several merchandise sections to cater for all the games, books, dvds and nik-naks, a classic section, 3 roleplaying sections, character galleries, a fanfiction area and a new section due to be opened in the coming weeks for the realtime discussion of everything relating to series 6. If that wasn't enough, we also have an enormous, recently extended section dedicated to everything outside the world of DW where you can talk about anything from the last movie you watched to the most embarrassing thing thats ever happened to you.
The feedback we have had for the forum has been overwhelmingly positive and we have even started to get noticed and mentioned in other places around the web for our up to date news, welcoming atmosphere and friendly attitude to fandom. Many of our members have stated that they have been put off by forums in the past due to unfriendly members and/or bad moderation, but were convinced to give it another try because they felt so welcomed at The Doctor In The TARDIS.
Our main ethos is that no one fan is more important than another and that every opinion is valid and welcomed. One of the reasons we have been so successful is because everybody is given the opportunity to have their say free from judgement and ridicule and arguments and rudeness just doesnt play a part there.
None of what we have built so far would have been possible without our members. We have gone from strength to strength and grown tremendously, but without our members coming back to us every day and sharing their thoughts and views we would never have got off the ground. In order to keep growing and keep getting better though we want to bring even more people on board and into the fold.
If you are a fan of Doctor Who or its spin offs, or just like chatting with likeminded people then give us a try. Signing up to the forum is completely free and takes less than two minutes. Once you are a member you will recieve perks around the forum as well as news and spoilers not reported on the main news site. We run games, competetions, polls and quizzes on a daily basis, so there is always something to join in with and with the news series just around the corner there is always something to talk about.
If you are still undecided then come check us out by going to http://www.thedoctorinthetardis.freesmfhosting.com/ and seeing what we are all about. We have a huge help section on the forum where you can find answers to most questions, but if there is anything else you need to know, then leave a comment here and we will answer asap.
