Spoilers are not cool. No one likes having something they are looking forward to spoiled. To date we haven't had an official rule concerning this-- we simply dealt with it when it happened because it isn't a rampant issue. For future references:

  1. If you create a spoiler thread it should be something like [Movie/TV show spoiler warning] Not [THIS MAJOR CHARACTER DIED. THE GUY EVERYONE LOVES IS DEAD. DEEEEAAD!!!!!!]
  2. If you post a spoiler in a non-spoiler discussion thread use the spoiler or spoiler block option (they helpfully have spoiler in the name) and post a spoiler warning.
  3. Do not send spoilers to people. This troll behavior and will be treated as such.
  4. Be careful when titling "leak" threads. Some people do not wish to see leaked information.

So we'll get banned for spoiling things? I find that unfair. Its my right to be a spoiling dilweed!

Probably not. The severity of response may range from a light warning to a temp ban, depending on your past history. If you are a trouble maker you may get a temp ban (length to be determined by history/mod issuing ban. If you are newer or have little-no history of being trouble some you will probably receive an advisement/warning.

If this doesn't apply to you-- congratulations. You have sufficient maturity to not require babysitting. Allow me to commend your grasp of social etiquette.

@kiba: Spoilers aren't normally an issue. Most people know not to put it in the title so I didn't seen a need to pin this. I might change that

@wildvine: Does it have to be a detailed spoiler for this rule to apply? For example one of the current general discussion titles is

Is there was no BFR, who would've won in the end? *Thor Ragnarok Spoilers

https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/gen-discussion-1/is-there-was-no-bfr-who-wouldve-won-in-the-end-tho-1905315/#59

This isn't a detailed spoiler but it seems like minor spoilers to me because it indicates someone will be BFR at the end of Thor.

It's only going to get worse once The Last Jedi comes out.

Spoilers are a bad thing. Especially, when it comes to sites like Screenrant. That site is full of spoilers, even though the articles gave spoiler warnings. It's hard to look at that site, nowadays.

Bumping for Black Panther being out, but also for this Black Panther Discussion Thread (Spoilers) This is the official spoiler discussion thread and it will be pinned for a week or so. You may make your own spoiler thread if you want to discuss something specific about the film (see the guidelines above) or you can just visit the aforementioned official thread if you just want to casually chat about the movie.

Nice call on doing the same thing with the IW spoilers discussion thread.

@omega_kai: @kevd4wg:

Sorry for the wait. Common consensus as of now is a calendar month. That may change in the future.

@wildvine: Don't check your PMs. Nobody is forcing you to read them if you already know people are going to spoil it.

Take one week off the Internet before you intend to see a movie then you don't have to worry about spoilers. Simple.

@gokuisstrongest: Right. Its not the baby trolls fault or responsibility to act mature. While we're at it, if people don't want to get murdered maybe they shouldn't ever interact with any human ever
