BTW, how do you people feel about those who use excessive spoiler tags? Like 13849372897 spoiler tags in one single post. I know takenoko gets pissed by them once in a while due to its redundancy.

Spoiler tags should only be used for either massive image posts (and if you have more than like five images just put them in one spoiler tag, not one tag per image), or for hiding comments on something revealing in an episode that might be a surprise, but even then if you're reading comments to an episode you haven't watched yet you're asking for spoilers anyway. And again, less is best.

Anything in an episode we haven't released is a spoiler. We remove what we deem as spoiler material. This is to individual moderator discretion (though we all agree on what's done anyway so there's no differentiation).

Read the rules folks. It's all in there.
Violence is the best answer.

I feel that if i don't watch the preview, I will feel happier watching the show that way. Maybe TVN should also cut the preview at the end and make that a separate torrent. XD Anyway, thank you people for expressing yourself about how you feel about spoilers. I was wondering when would someone bring this topic up.
i think its not a good idea..its ok to show a little bit preview for the next episode just to make people more eager to see the next episode.in fact..all movies has its preview before the show comes out..but dont tell the whole story..it will make the story becomes boring..

I would agree with you, but one of the rules that TVN has laid down is that no-one posts spoilers to episodes they haven't subbed. This might be brand new shows like Decade or Shinkenger, or it might be shows they have started retroactively but not completed, such as Faiz. I think that's fair enough, I would agree with you spoiler tags should be used, but they are for spoilers in currently subbed episodes.
I see. Then it only falls on the posters' fault, if they aren't updated on shows that are subbed by TVN other than Decade(like me), or anyone for that matter, that they tread carefully as to what sort of spoiler they would be posting. None the less, if such sort of information containing spoilers is to be posted, spoiler tags are needed, lest ye dare face the wrath of the mighty TVN forum admin/mods.

On the other hand, if questions that end in inevitable spoilers are to arise, it would be better to look for the answers somewhere else. It is the internet, after all. Heck, you can use Youtube's comment system to get spoiled or even spoil everyone else, if you're that evil. ^^;
Well no not really, its rather simple.
Only post about things that have happened in that episode and you'll be fine.
If you're posting in an episode thread with information you got from a later episode (providing it has been subbed by TVN) then put it spoiler tags.
If you are posting information from another season of a show that HAS been subbed by TVN then put it in spoiler tags.
If you are posting information from another episode or season of a show that HAS NOT been subbed by TVN, then don't, because it will get edited and you will be banned.

Decade is rather a different monster because it has past seasons actually within the show itself, to which I would recommend only talking about things that happened in that particular episode to avoid banning. This does not include the next week previews, they are counted as part of the next episode and can not be talked about in episode threads.

^that's... what I would've wanted to say. o.o;

So yeah, the bottom line is, stick with what happened in that particular subbed episode minus the previews. For any other vital information that's not from the episode at hand, use common sense. Use spoiler tags. They are free, btw. xD

Takenoko is Fontaine!!!! But seriously I personally wait till at least 2 weeks after something has been released to talk about it outside of the current episode threads and if it is anything major i use spoiler tags or use hints that only people that have seen the show can interpret. I also just don't talk about stuff outside of tv nihon releases.

Oh snap. The admins and mods have become super adamant about this. This really will help with spoilers. Even if you haven't read the rules, you need to be blind not to see that.

Erm, you are forgetting the people who do not know what a spoiler is, or simply can't understand why spoilers are a bad thing.


Yes, people that stupid do exist. And those people will ignore these rules and get themselves banned, but sometimes not before doing their damage.

Why would anyone want a spoiler zone?
Sometimes it's best to just go along with it and avoid the explosions, other times it's fun to be the one with the detonator and an evil laugh.

No idea about that... What are they gonna do, brag about knowing something before others? >.>

Anyway, why do some people even read the comments to a certain episode before even watching it, and then go crying about seeing "spoilers"? IMO, that's just as retarded as posting (and bragging about) spoilers...

The only instance I can possibly imagine where a separate discussion for spoilers even makes sense around here is in one area: toys. Bandai is pretty good about not releasing stuff ridiculously out of sync with TV appearances, but it does happen. For example, in the Final Form Ride series for Decade, Ryuki inexplicably came out before Kiva did. In fact, Kiva Arrow still isn't out yet, when the series has already moved on to Blade's World.

And that's to say nothing of all the numerous shots of toys in Decade, from magazines and solicitations, that are of even more spoiler-y nature.

You guys should just make a spoiler section of the forum.

Limiting what people can't do say or do is almost like a communist regime here. It just makes people hate Nihon more.
