Spoiler rules: Please read them

After much wailing and gnashing of teeth, T'Bonz has updated the board rules as regards to spoilers. This covers all films and TV series. You can read about them here. It would be a very good idea to re-familiarize yourself with them, as a fe things have changed. Most notably, the United States is no longer a reference point. To review:
  • - First off, there should never be spoilers in thread titles. That's a no-no. Verboten.
  • - Second, if your thread contains or is likely to contain spoilers, please indicate that in the title, so folks looking to avoid spoilers can, well, avoid them.
  • - Fourthly, if you bring spoiler discussion into a regular thread, please use the spoiler code. Otherwise, Spiff cries, and every time Spiff cries, he gets really blubbery. We're talking newborn baby here. Dude makes Niagara Falls look like the desert, you get what we're saying? So you don't want to make Spiff cry.
  • - Finally, the statute of limitations on whether to consider an episode/film free of spoilers is one year from the time when it first airs, wherever it first airs. If a new episode of BSG airs on June 1st in England then on Aug 1st in the US, the clock starts ticking on June 1st.

We're not going to warn for spoilers, not right off the bat, but if anyone is persistent about violating these rules, we'll have to consider it. IF someone DOES post a spoiler, don't explode. Simply roll with it and hit the friendly little "Notify" button at the bottom of each and every post. Just think about your fellow posters when you're posting, okay? A little consideration goes a long way 'round these parts.

Any discussions about these, please take it to the QSF forum.

Re: Spoiler rules: Please read them

We're in the home stretch now, so please remember to be careful of spoilers. What's left is a heckuva ride, with all manner of viewers on all manner of schedules. It'll will be easy to forget that, but try to keep others in consideration.
