Please be careful when starting new threads to include SPOILER if necessary

Anyone starting a new thread- please be careful to include SPOILER or SPOILER WARNING in the title if planning to discuss certain major events in the new movie.

Remember not everyone has had the chance to see it yet.

Similarly, please do not discuss such events in the course of existing threads unless a SPOILER WARNING is present in the title of that thread.

This applies to all forums, not just this one.

Thank you.

    Thanks for that as one who is scheduled to see the film for the first time on 10/14.

    The other slippery slope is even the titles of threads.

    Unfortunately someone also appears to have dropped a massive spoiler in the general Bond films category.

    Be nice if folk feeling compelled to be openly homophobic or racist in comments just defenestrated themselves instead.

    Feel free to report such comments. We can't read every post, especially at the pace they have been coming in since NTTD was released.

    Of course, will do, you're doing more than sterling work on spoilers! - and no reflection on the vast majority of marvellous souls who frequent here. But I thought worth flagging openly as with extreme disappointment I note more than a couple have thought it acceptable to suggest a character having a man round for dinner or a black 00(no spoilers) is somehow 'disgusting' or 'dangerous' to their children and shouldn't be allowed..

    I have directly challenged some to reconsider their comments and posts have been edited or deleted, so there it can rest.

    Every time I read the title of this bloody thread I have that Feargal Sharkey song going round my head for the rest of the evening...

    After much discussion we've decided to drop the need for a spoiler tag when discussing NTTD. Please use that thread if further discussion is wanted.

    What bother putting spoilers in the thread title?

    Just allude to the topic and say SPOILER ALERT then everyone's happy no?

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 35,572Chief of Staff

    As I said above, there was some discussion and it was felt that spoiler tags were no longer needed so long after the film's release. I realize that there will (? always) be a small number of people who haven't seen it but there has to be a point where spoiler tags feel fussy and not needed. After the discussion we felt that point had been reached.

    Alluding to the topic also has drawbacks, ie saying "End of NTTD" can be ambiguous (eg it could mean Madeleine and Mathilde talking in the car, it could mean M & co toasting, it could mean Louis Armstrong singing) and I think there are many similarly titled threads.

    It's a good point that there will always be a small number that haven't seen the latest or a particular film in the series, a bit like a number (greater in number perhaps) that haven't read a particular book.

    I think it was the right decision to remove the spoiler tags from NTTD discussions after this amount of time and some common sense should prevail and be held, that after this time, there's every chance a thread/discussion about the most recent film, will include key/major plot points.

    Right decision. The movie was released a year ago, is out for home media since 9 months…

    So if some people still haven’t seen it for whatever reason they simply should stay off of these threads or at least be aware of „the risk“ instead of trying to force their way for their minority on the majority of us.

    The name is Walker by the way.
