1:  What is DWO

Generally, Doctor Who isn't that hard to order. If you just watch the epsiodes in the order they were produced, you should be good to follow through. Even the spinoffs like Torchwood and the like generally hold together with published order.

Things get a little more tricky when you throw books into the list, and then much trickier when you add the Audio. Personally, I like reading my doctors from the Doctors point of view, so all my first doctor stories togheter, etc.

This order tires to do that. It's a semi-chronological ordering of doctor who, with a few big caveatses.

1) We don't split titles up. I'm not talking about anthologies, but say a comic where you travel from 1 doctor to another. You wouldn't read half the comic and then some time later read the second half. It's all read together, places wherever the furtherst doctor would go.

2) Placements to avoid spoilers. We move things that would spoil big reveals until after the big reveal, even if it's wrong chronologically. This is to keep you from missing what would otherwise be a big moment. A good example of this is details of the Time War, which are treated as a mystery and aren't revealed until much later in the chronology. Since watching/reading about the Time War would ruin both the reveal and the mystery, we put all his stories after the reveal as a flashback.

2:  Why Don't You Have [Fill in the Blank]?
Whatever you can't find, either it's there, or I missed it (which is totally plausable). Head to the forums and let me know what I missed, and we can figure out how to fix the problem and get the item listed.
3:  Submitting Content
User contributed content is always wanted, needed, appreciated, and loved. However, to keep there are a few guidelines to the the type of content we are looking for.
    Comments: Comments are more or less free game, express your views on a particular issue, story arc, character, reply to the thoughts of others, or just make observations. The only 2 hard guidelines for comments are:
      1. No flaming or attacking other commenters. Disagreeing and debating is fine but it should not devolve into personal attacks.
      2. As this is an all ages site, please keep the profanity to a most a pg-13 level.
    Reviews:These should be fully thought out and complete reviews. Take a look at some of the reviews in the News & Reviews part of the site to see the quality that is desired. If the review is one or two sentences, it might be more appropriate as a comment rather then a full issue review. Submitted reviews that pass muster will also be featured in the News & Reviews part of the site. Reviews will be edited before pushed live for grammar, spelling, and punctation.
    Synopsis:Issue Synopsis should be complete descriptions of everything that happens in the issue. It does not have to be panel by panel, but there should be enough information for someone checking the synopsis to have a complete understanding of all notable events in the comic. If a review is one or two short paragraphs, it is probably not complete enough to be used. Do not worry about spoilers, synopsis are by their very nature spoilers. Also, leave comments or thoughts on quality of story or art out of synopsis, it is a strict presentation of events. For thoughts and comments, these are more appropriate for reviews or comments.
    Blurbs: Blurbs are brief teasers for the issue. They should be short and spoiler free while still giving a sense of what the issue is about. These are similar to the back of a book or inside dust cover.
    Suggestions & Questions: This is for anything that is wrong on the issue. Missing or incorrect character and group listings, if a read online option is available from marvel but is not listed, if a creator is wrong, if the issue is in the wrong place, or something else similar to this. When submitting a correction, please include information on what should be done to fix the listing (add this character, move this issue to be after this other issue, etc). If there is a question, it should be sent in an e-mail or in the forums, as there is no way to respond directly to the person who submitted the suggestion. Please be clear in your suggestions. Mention the full name of missing people, put in the correct title if it is wrong, etc.
    Trade/Collection Suggestions: If this book is included in a trade publication or other collected work that might be easier for readers to find then the original issue, it can be suggested here. Make sure to include enough information so the trade publication can be identified.
