With the release of spoilers today and the upcoming onslaught of spoilers we are likely to see after Celebration Europe, we are going to go ahead and start sign-up's for the NSA forum. We plan on opening it around the time of Celebrations. The forum will be read-only to anyone who doesn't sign-up for it. Only those seriously going non-spoilers should consider requesting access. If you request access and then post spoilers in there to cause trouble. You will be banned, no questions asked. Thank You, Your Episode 7 Management Team RULES FOR NSA: Welcome to the JC. While you're here, I hope you'll drop by the non-spoiler forum. The following is our most current set of rules for what is and is not considered spoiler material: *** Important please read this: Anything that has been released after August 1st, even from official sources is now off limits in the NSA forum with the exception of the one thread designated for newly released information. To discuss newly released information please head to this thread. The one exception to this is the soundtrack cover (cover only). *** These are the rules that apply to the entire JC (with the exception of the two STSA forums) 1) Anything dated prior to August 1st, 2013 from any official or unofficial source is not a spoiler. 2) Anything said by Lucas, Abrams, Any Producer working on the project or any other individual ranking high in the Lucasfilm hierarchy is not a spoiler. Anything said by a mid- to lower- level employee, like the ones who leak info to TF.N, is a spoiler. 3) Quotes from actors, stunt doubles, etc., who were on the set of Episode 7 are not considered spoilers. 4) Any information from any issue of Star Wars Insider is not a spoiler. Information from any tabloid or other publication dated after 5/19/99 is. 5) Any information taken from the official site, including the Select pics, is not a spoiler. 6) When the time comes, the posters and trailers will not be considered spoilers. 7) Of course, all sorts of speculation based on information obtained from the non-spoiler sources above is acceptable and welcome. *** The following are certain actions that are not allowed in the Non-Spoiler Forum to keep it devoid of spoilers: *** 1) Posting highlightable text (ex: highlightable). This makes it very easy for a troll to hide spoilers, and makes it harder to administrate in general. They also will be seen when the colors of the board change. 2) Linking to the Episode 7 (Spoilers Allowed) forum. Linking to a thread in the SA forum is not allowed because then people would have to venture into SA to get someone's point, and they could be easily spoiled. It presents a temptation to non-spoiler members, and if one needs to refer to a SA thread, they can easily simply quote the parts of the thread that they refer to, editing out the spoiler parts since they would not contribute to the discussion, and obviously because they are spoilers. 3) Discussing opinions of Episode 7 I based on spoilers. Threads such as "Don't get too hyped up about episode II" are not allowed since they are informing and discussing spoilers. Opinions of Episode II based on speculation are allowed, but not based on spoilers. Based on spoilers means that they aer discussing spoilers, and taht is not allowed in the NS forum. *** 1) * Any pic released after the date that they start sharing pictures we can edit this when we get a date may be linked to, but not imbedded. When linking to a new officialy released pic please give a small spoiler warning. 2) *Pics and descriptions of Episode 7 toys are only allowed in this thread when it exist.. 3) Any material from the Episode 7 novelization is considered spoiler, with the exception of the cover art only 4) Any material from the Art of Star Wars, Episode 7 novel is considered spoiler, with the exception of the cover art. ** We reserve the right to restrict certain users from posting in the non-spoiler forum, such as users whose names contain spoilers and those with spoilers in their signatures. These rules are constantly under debate and are sometimes modified. The only way the rules will be changed is if the regular posters to the non-spoiler forum agree revisions are needed, or in special cases where the administrators agree that new rules are necessary and would improve the forum community. As always, if you have questions or concerns about the NS forum, feel free to PM any of the mods listed above. *These rules apply only to the NSA forum. **While it will be off limits to post pics from The Art of Star Wars book in the NSA forum, for now it will be ok to do so outside of said forum.
