    Your friendly little forum bot. Staff Member

    The entertainment forum is the place to talk about films, TV shows, podcasts, books, video games, comic books, and other forms of entertainment. This thread outlines a few of the forum policies that help maintain a smooth and consistent environment.

    Please also be aware of the community rules and code of conduct policy.

    If you need to contact a moderator, you'll find an updated list here.

    Spoilers

    When discussing entertainment the general policy is to use spoiler tags when talking about events or things that are clear or potential spoilers. Simply enclose the part that is a spoiler with spoiler tags:

    [SPOILER]Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's dad.[/SPOILER]

    This will make sure the spoiler is blacked out and can be viewed by hovering a mouse, or tapping with a finger, the spoiler to reveal it. The forum's general policy is that once a movie, or TV show, has aired, and it has been officially released, spoiler tags are no longer needed. Everyone should be aware that once a movie hits theaters, for example, that the thread will be discussing the movie ā€” openly and without spoiler tags ā€” and know this fact before venturing into the movie's thread. Up to the official release we request spoiler tags be used. It is also general practice to spoiler tag rumors, leaks, and anything that may give away plot points before the official release.

    If there are questions or other things that need to be added at some point as we grow/clarify our policies I'll add it into the above post. This is just a starting place and something to make everything a little more uniform/understood.

    An official stance on spoilers had been a long time coming, that's for sure.

    So, how many spoilers can people actually know before it has actually been released? That rule doesn't make a ton of sense to me.. theres not much to spoil aside from rumors, actors being cast and trailers if it hasn't come out yet.
