New Spoiler Policy for episode releases

Post by takenoko » Tue Dec 21, 2010 10:27 pm

So previously:
OK: Talking about stuff within the episode itself. If we hadn't released it, you can't talk about it basically
Not OK: Movie stuff, promos, previews, spoiler from outside sources, rumors about future episodes

We're thinking about easing up on the spoiler policy

HOWEVER!
We as mods expect you to do a little work on making this easier. So we still want to keep the main discussion about the episode itself, but if you see other stuff in the episode release, maybe stuff referring to the movie in the opening, or stuff in the preview about the next episode, YOU MUST USE PROPERLY LABELED SPOILER TAGS

So now:
OK: Stuff within the episode, always okay
OK with labeled spoiler tags: Stuff in a released episode but not the actual story. So stuff like
-Movie promos (at the end or in the opening). Personally, I'd prefer this stuff was in the movie thread though
-Preview for next episodes
Still not OK: Spoilers from outside sources, rumors about future episodes based on stuff outside of knowledge that is obtained within the episode

So for example, say you look in the opening and see a spoiler new form. You'd go

Spoiler for movie preview in the opening:
SpoilerShow
The new form looks super gay, llolz


Or say you want to talk about the preview:

Preview:
SpoilerShow
Oh man, the next episode looks awesome. It's going to be awesome. That fight looks really awesome


The basic idea is that if we released it, you're free to talk about it. The main focus is still talking about stuff within the episode itself though for those who want to focus on that. As long as we can all respect each other's rights, I think we all can get along

So previews are good as long as they are in a marked spoiler tag. Sounds good, and I imagine that the majority of us will do this, but the people that don't read the rules probably will still do it, although these are the ones that post these at the moment. Conundrum lol.

I would like to repeat that when using spoiler tags about talking something from a preview, please put a description for the tag. I been seeing way too many tags that don't have a description. Don't make people guess what's in the spoiler tag only to find out something that they didn't want to see.

Would the MOD who blocked me please give me a clear example of how I should have made my post that caused me to get blocked? The only thing I can think of is that I didn't exactly say what it was prior to actually hitting the spoiler button. Thanks.

I don't know who gave you a ban, maybe it was me. Just read the rules and the spoiler policy. If you have any questions, ask them after that

Ah I just saw it in the recyclopedia and I guess I am not allowed to speculate as to what might happen later in the series. Wow. I am not sure what to think about that rule honestly...

Thanks anyway.

I don't know how explicit the spoiler was or if it was just pure speculation, but it was enough for a moderator to feel like you might be spoiling some future content. Given that there is spoiler info out there already for that subject matter, the mods probably aren't going to give you the benefit of the doubt, so be careful with how you word things and what you choose to talk about

Would it be possible for some additional clarification on this? I've just received a warning for a post which I thought would have complied with the rules, where I linked to (under a spoiler tag) the official site where there was a preview screenshot relating to the discussion topic. The message I was left said "Spoilers for something two episodes away should obviously not be posted.", but there's nothing in the current rules from what I can tell which prohibits this. Not quite sure what the problem was, given that this was material on the official website for the series.

its as you said, 2 eps away, that contravenes the spoiler rules

had it been for the preview of the next episode it wouldn't be flagged,

Even if you don't understand the rules, you can probably understand that if it's not released, it's not fair game for talking about.

If someone only comes to this site and is following the story based on our releases, I don't want them accidentally spoiled for something that uses outside information.

Personaly this just makes sence to me don't spoile something for people that love the show but want to see it instead of hearing about it first, very much a no brainer in my mind.
