Rules around the use of spoilers The moderation team has identified that there is no set standard for users to hide spoilers. This inconsistency means that we continue to receive RTMs from users who complain that they visit threads about movies and TV shows that have been spoiled by careless posters. Several high profile threads such as the Game of Thrones thread have its own sub-set of rules and we appreciate that having different standards across the forum is not only difficult to follow but it is difficult for us to police. Use of spoiler tags Anything that spoils the series, film, or hints at what happens is classified as a spoiler and should be labelled as such. As a general rule, if you are unsure that what you are about to post may be classified as a spoiler, use spoiler tags. Therefore, with IMMEDIATE EFFECT we are establishing the following rules in Music, TV & Box Office: Any breaking of the above simple rules will result in infraction/suspension, any further transgressions will result in increased suspensions and may ultimately result in removal of access to those sub-forums. The aim here is not to spoil the fun but to make sure that people have the chance to enjoy the show and to find out the storyline for themselves without others ruining it for them. Everyone has a part to play here as it also relies on posters helping the moderation team and using the RTM function to report instances where the rules are being broken. We reserve the right to implement a strike system similar to Speakers Corner, if the situation does not improve.
