FanFic Spoiler Policy With the casting announcement today, it's possible we will be getting spoilers soon. As per board rules, spoilers for Episode 7 and beyond, including spin-off movies must remain in the appropriate forum (currently in 7SA). This applies to all threads in resource, including the social thread. FanFiction using spoilers for the upcoming movies is allowed with the following stipulations: A spoiler warning must be in the subject line of the thread. Example: Awesome Story Title - Action - H/L, Luke, R2 - Possible E7 Spoilers A spoiler warning must be at the top of the body of the thread and must be obvious (no hiding it with similar to the background colors or very small font.) Example: HERE BE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 7, PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. If your story isn't intended to have spoilers and you later decide to add them, you must do the above and then warn in an obvious manner before the next post of the story. There is a NOtolerance policy for spoilers. If you do not make every effort to warn people of possible spoilers your story will be removed in it's entirety and you will receive a temporary ban. What Is and Isn't a Spoiler? From 7NSA, which applies board wide: Basically, a good rule of thumb is, if you think it might be a spoiler, it probably is. Remember that some people love spoilers and some people don't, let's not ruin it for anyone. How long is a new movie a spoiler? The board standard is 2 weeks, which is what we will be using for fanfic. After two weeks, anything is fair game. If after the movie comes out, people want to start character discussion threads, that is fine, but it needs to be clear (in the title and the thread) that there are spoilers within.
