Spoiler Tag Rules for Shoutbox/Chat
« on: May 09, 2019, 03:01:19 PM »
Hey everyone,
Please make use of spoiler tags in the shoutbox, by using /sp at the start of a message.  You MUST use spoiler tags when:
  • Within 1 day of the airing of a tv episode
  • Within 1 week of the premiere of a movie (going by Friday release day, not the early release/preview/etc.)

In general, please be respectful of others that do no want to be spoiled.  Give a heads up when you'll be talking about it, even when tagging so people know what to hover over and not.  If someone explicitly states no spoiler on [thing] after the above statute of limitations, let that take precedence.

Basically, overall, just be considerate of others.

As an aside, here's a link to how spoilers can enhance you enjoyment of something: https://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/spoiler-alert-spoilers-make-you-enjoy-stories-more so, if something does get spoiled for you, also be considerate and do not rage at the person, I'm sure it was an innocent mistake.

Happy chatting everyone.
