It's a real shame that it took 4 replies for somebody to actually comment on the topic, rather than making snide remarks about the OP's spelling. Which is against the T&Cs.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this. I've never seen them in a story before but heard a lot about them, so I'm interested to see how I find them.

Snide is subjective; to my eyes the comments aren't snide because they don't seek to make any implications about the poster, they merely observe that there is a typo and that it leads to an amusing sentence. I took it as given that we all make such typos from time to time, whether due to muscle memory going for the wrong word or because you miss a letter and your tablet/phone/whatever makes an autocorrection without you noticing.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this. I've never seen them in a story before but heard a lot about them, so I'm interested to see how I find them.
I've seen them in brief cameo in The War Games only. With these and The Great Intelligence just now, maybe the BBC are apologising for wiping all those Troughton tapes?

Perhaps more likely Moffat paying tribute to his favourite era.

No he hasn't. I think now that the new paradigm Daleks look metallic they look brilliant, especially the red and the blue ones.
Moffat has only wrote one Dalek episode and I already like that one more than any of the ones wrote by RTD.

I think the silurians are good, I haven't seen a classic story with them in but in my opinion the certainly look better now than they did before.

It's there, alright.

Unconstructive posts commenting on the spelling and/or grammar of another user's post will not be tolerated. We ask that users make the effort to communicate clearly and, so long as posts are understandable, there should be no problem.

Further proof this forum is ran by morons.

Abuse is out of line, but there is nothing wrong with correcting spelling in any walk of life - and I'm dyslexic!

But the guidelines say that "unconstructive" posts pointing out spelling errors are not allowed. There are light hearted and constructive ways of doing it. All they are doing is indicating that as long as the meaning of the post is clear then it is not helpful to post simply in order to complain about spelling. Try and be "constructive" and friendly.

I like the irony of telling us that "Abuse is out of line" but that the site is run by morons.

I thought the first few posts in this thread were very light hearted and not intended to make the op feel bad. But that's just how it seemed to me.

Actually it implies that posts correcting spelling are uncontructive not the contents!

In which case the guidance is not as clear as it might be. For example it could say "Posts commenting on spelling and grammar are unconstructive and will not be tolerated.". Rather than what it actually says, which is that "unconstructive posts commenting on...." etc.

I don't think they intend a zero tolerance policy for any and all mentions of spelling and grammar. That would be over the top. I have seen plenty of posts highlighting these things in friendly and helpful ways that have been welcomed by the person making the mistake. I think all they intend is that we shouldn't use spelling mistakes as a weapon to belittle other people and their opinions.

That's fine, and the fact that people are hesitating to make a simple correction shows that it is wrong.

My complete distaste for the people who run this forum and the way they do it runs a lot further than this one thing.

Look forward to seeing the ice warriors. Daleks and cybermen managed to come into the present day. Sure ice warriors will do the same scary but fun too.

The point is that the 'simple correction' is completely unnecessary and only serves to make the correcter look like they're putting the original poster down, which causes others to leap to their defence, and soon the whole thread is derailed. Just like is happening now. Likewise, it puts people off contributing if they think someone is going to jump down their throats for hitting the wrong key.

It's one thing to explain out to someone how to spell 'Raxacoricofallapatorius', it's another to berate them for typing 'your' instead of 'you're'. It's not about what's correct or incorrect, it's about keeping the discussion flowing smoothly.

Without having a go at the OP, the spelling shows a total lack of basic English. Typing "their" instead of "they're" is certainly not a case of hitting the wrong key.

It's not spelling, it's using the wrong word to mean something else entirely.

Yep - agree with saucepan above. The guidelines are fine. And to keep things on topik I just wanted to sey that Ise Warriors are grate. Reelly looking fourwood to them coming bak.

Silurians look great I think. I saw the mock up done of an alternative design much closer to the original shape. and that would have been good too. But I understand why they went with what they dld and I liked it. New daleks were crap but they redeemed themselves over that in series 7. and the stone daleks in Big Bang. It looks as though series 7 is also going to improve the revival cybermen design, which I've never liked. So on the whole I trust them to get Ice Warriors right.

But if they even think about mucking about with Zygons I'll not be responsible for my actions.
