We do not require spoiler tags or otherwise require any warning that a thread may contain a spoiler. You should assume that when clicking on a thread you will see spoilers on that topic.
With that in mind we do have some rules to ensure it can continue to be your choice as to where and when you see spoilers while on these forums.
Spoilers do not directly violate the rules of this forum as long as:
- They are not contained within thread subject lines. Posting a thread with a title that is itself a spoiler will result in a harsh penalty.
- They are reasonable within the context of the thread. Jumping into a thread to post a spoiler that’s off-topic, or creating a thread with a misleading subject line to reveal a spoiler, will result in a harsh penalty.
Like all moderation, we reserve the right to take (or not take) actions we deem necessary based on our discretion.
