Title: "Spoiler" guideline
Post by: rlb on Jul 21, 2007, 03:41PM
I am surprised that such a guideline should need to be promulgated, but it does, so here 'tis.

The short version of the TTF spoiler guideline is thus:  Don't post them. It's rude and a bit egotistical. 

Sure, you can put "***SPOILER****" in the subject line, but if you read the Forum via RSS or the User Center/Most Recent Posts link on the dropdown menus, you automatically get a big hunk of the post without clicking on anything further.

If you MUST post material that highlights that you've "got the goods" before anyone else, simply make a post that reads "I have all the good spoilers on XXXXXX, PM me for details!"  That way, no one can accidentally read your post.

Henceforth, any spoilers of recent releases ("recent" being loosely defined as "hasn't been out a full month yet") will simply be deleted.  I'd rather them not be posted to start with.

Thank you,
