[hl=yellow]SPOILER ALERT THREAD ATTENTION ALL 3NS USERS: PLEASE READ[/hl] This is the new Spoiler Alert thread for the 3NSA forum, modeled after k kanos' ***Spoiler Alert*** thread. Cheers also go out to wstraka5 for ressurecting the idea. All of the sites listed here have spoilers on them. If you wish to remain spoiler-free, do not go to these sites; not a peak, not a glance, avoid these sites at all costs!! If you know of any threads that any spoilers in them, ALERT EITHER [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=231837]Mace Windy[/link] or [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=226005]stinrab[/link]! For information on what is regarded as a spoiler, please see this thread: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=2741934]Updated Non-Spoiler Forum Rules (everyone read)[/link] *** The purpose of this thread is to alert other users of the 3NS forum to potential spoilers so they can be steered clear of. These spoiler warnings can be regarding any area (ie. The JC, TF.N or the media in general) *** Some rules and guidelines regarding this thread: 1. Try and not be descriptive when alerting 3NS users to the spoiler discovered. A simple warning (eg. Do not go to blahblah.com?s article section because a whole heap of potential spoilers are contained there) will suffice. 2. The spoilers alerted to in this thread can be from both on and off this forum (ie. Articles, websites etc. can also be alerted to) 3. a) Spoiled members and moderators are NOT to post spoiler warnings in this thread. The reason for this is that they could point out something which 3NS users thought was mere speculation (ie. By alerting us to the presence of a spoiler, they could, innocently, spoil the users of this forum). This has been eloquently put by Mace Windy as follows: I remember several occasions in the past, in which a mod from an outside forum would enter the NS forum, see a spoiler buried in speculation, and remove it. As a result, every member of that forum who had read that post which they believed only contained speculation now knew that that what they had read had been a spoiler. They weren't spoiled by the post themselves, they were actually spoiled by the fact that the post was edited. b) This means that only 3NS users can post spoiler warnings in this thread. The administration reserves the right to punish members who abuse this thread. 4. As a result of the above, only contact a non-3NS moderator in emergencies. Once the spoilers start pouring in in early 2003, the role of outside mods in this forum will be drastically reduced. 5. If a member only thinks that an item is a spoiler, he should refrain from posting in this thread or contacting a moderator As always, if you have questions or concerns about the NS forum, feel free to PM Mace Windy, or stinrab.
