Spoiler- Is it time to drop Spoiler tags for this film?

BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 33,442Chief of Staff

Following some comments, I'd like to ask opinions on the subject of spoiler warnings for the most important plot event of NTTD.

It took some members a few months to catch the film, but I think it's safe to assume that everyone has by now. If not, please speak up.

There has to come a time when everyone knows, for example, the ending of "The Sixth Sense" or "Fight Club". An older example- "Psycho".

Please discuss.

    I think it's time to drop the spoiler tag. With the film having been and gone form the cinema for some considerable time, and available on DVD and streaming for months.

    Yes - this movie is commercially available since over 6 months. Anybody who hasn’t seen it by now is at own fault.

    The name is Walker by the way.

    Let its (the spoiler alert's) death be a particularly decisive and immediate one.

    Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.

    Going forward, I'd suggest the following:

    If a thread has 'Spoilers' in the title, that'll suffice. Anyone who has not seen the movie enters at his/her own risk.

    If a thread has 'No-Spoilers' in the title, then it's safe for anyone. If someone posts spoilers accidentally, then call him/her out on it and have them edit their post.

    Once a movie has hit streaming/physical media and everyone theoretically has access to it, then spoilers can be included in other threads (like the Imaginary Conversation thread) without any sort of warning. Until then, keep anything spoilery out of peripheral threads. After a certain point, it's an individual person's responsibility to see the film if they're going to participate in the threads.

    I'm hoping to get a few more opinions in this thread.

    I'm unsure. I tend to favour dropping the spoiler tags, at least in the NTTD sub-forum. I see no reason why members who for some reason haven't seen NTTD would expect to visit there without reading any spoilers. Other parts of the forum is more difficult. Maybe AJB should keep the spoiler tags in other sub-forums, and in that way making sure members who don't want to know the ending don't stumble into it in random threads.

    NTTD in general should not receive spoiler tags anymore…it‘s been out there long enough.

    If we continue with that we might aswell use the spoiler tag for „Tomorrow Never Dies“…just in case some folks haven’t seen it yet

    The name is Walker by the way.

    I favour the dropping spoiler tags side of the aisle. I think the ending of NTTD is well known enough now.

    Drop it

    Well, I've made an announcement in https://www.ajb007.co.uk/discussion/54229/please-be-careful-when-starting-new-threads-to-include-spoiler-if-necessary that we're dropping the need for a spoiler tag, closed that thread, and suggested that any further discussion be carried out here.

    What happened in Psycho?


    What did I miss?


    My goodness, you avoid the cinema for 50 years or so and look what happens.
