    I voted for one month, but I don't know how long it takes the book to get released. Posting 'SPOILERS' isn't that hard, like was already mentioned, so it wouldn't be a big deal if in consideration for the readers in other countries we had to warn people for longer than that.

    Thank God I can edit my posts after 90 minutes... :D

    I say 45 days then. Ahem.

    I say one month is adequate time for those who care about the book to have read it.

    Actually, the one of the funniest things I've seen is that people still post spoiler warnings for the Thrawn Trilogy, even though it's 11 years old.

    I'd prefer 90 days, but one month seems adequate in most circumstances. I hate it when someone deliberately spoils no matter the time elapsed.
