1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Forum Index follows Policy reminders.

    A reminder (and summary) of our spoiler policy in LACWAC for the launch of the Clone Wars series:

    We will keep the general *Official* Animated Series Thread (spoilers) found [link=]HERE[/link] as the single thread for discussion of any spoilers you hear or read about - if you somehow become spoiled for the entire first season and want to discuss it, this thread will be the only place.

    We will have individual episode threads that will contain spoilers for that individual episode (and any prior episodes, BUT NOT SUBSEQUENT EPISODES). We're upset about the late airdate in the UK, but for simplicity and efficiency, we're suggesting that two weeks after an episode has aired in the US, the contents of that particular episode will be up for general discussion in the LACWAC forum, and won't be restricted to the individual episode thread.

    Garth was a 3NS (ROTS non-spoilers) Manager, and was a member of the 2NS forum as well. We understand the importance of not being spoiled in any way if possible. We're trying to use this 2-week window to ensure that you'll be able to watch each episode without being spoiled - after that two-week period, you're on your own. With the televised series, there's going to be new material to discuss every week, and we're just going to have to deal with spoilers in a more limited way than we did with the Saga films.

    We are going to keep a non-spoiler thread active in the LACWAC forum as well. We're going to keep the title updated every week, to inform you which episode is no longer considered spoiler material.

    For example, on October 17th, 2 weeks after the first episode airs in the US on October 3rd, its contents will be available for general discussion in any thread in LACWAC. Prior to the 17th, discussion of the episode will be limited to that individual episode's official thread or the general spoilers thread.

    That way, we have 3-5 primary Clone Wars threads active at any one time:

    -General Series Discussion Thread, Spoilers
    -General Series Discussion Thread, Non-Spoilers
    -One to three episode-specific spoiler threads.

    If you have any questions or comments, perhaps you can PM Quest or Garth, or post them here and we can clarify the situation for everyone.

    The Spoiler Policy Specifics:

    Whilst shows are in production:

    -All LFL (or Cartoon Network) released information/images are not considered spoiler material.
    -Anything else is a spoiler and must be flagged up in titles as such. Failure to do this will result in a ban.
    -HTR is suggested. This will be judged on a case by case basis, but HTR is recomended for most spoilers. Severe or multiple spoilers posted without HTR may be punished with a ban.
    -Non Spoiler threads will be provided for those that don't want to be spoiled.

    When shows air:

    -There will be designated spoiler threads for new episodes for all spoiler discussion regarding that/those episode(s), unless secondary threads are marked as such in their thread titles (with the thread titles themselves not being spoilers as well).
    -2 Weeks after the first US airing discussion of that episode is no longer considered a spoiler and can occur outside the "main threads".
    -A general Non Spoiler thread will be provided for series discussion.


    TF.N and the JC are 100% against piracy - bottomline is that it kills the industry.

    You cannot discuss where to find pirated material to download, and you absolutely cannot post direct links to pirated material. In the past the legal wing of LFL have contacted us regarding the timely removal of pirated material.

    If you break this rule you run the risk of being banned, with little or no warning.

    We realise that this causes a problem with the 'Holiday Special', which is not legally available anywhere.

    Question: Are the episode photos over at the German project star wars site legit? I'd like to alert the folks over in the General Grievous club that there are some nice images of our favourite cyborg dude to be had over there--they all look like they bear the Cartoon Network logo so are hopefully okay. The site's got threads up for all the season one episodes too, so--yeah--spoilers there, though nothing that hasn't already been posted on the general series discussion thread here.

    The German site page I'm most interested in having checked out:

    Guys, if you have a question about the spoiler policy, please just PM me or Quest, don't post in this thread.

    With respect to your question, if you've found some images you want to discuss, you must do so only in the *Official* TCW discussion thread (spoilers). Thanks, G_M.

    I've done a much-needed minor update, and brought the epsidoe thread index up to date, added the RC SW 3 thread as well as the Republic Heroes thread. Other revisions/additions still need to be made, but I wanted to get those out of the way.
