Posting Access for No Spoilers Allowed: If you want to post here in NSA, please read the rules below and then go to THIS thread in Comms and post that you would like access. A mod will then give you posting rights as soon as we are able. 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 VII 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 August 1st, 2013 is. 5) Any information taken from the official site 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 VII (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 VII based on spoilers. Threads such as "Don't get too hyped up about Episode VII" are not allowed since they are informing and discussing spoilers. Opinions of Episode VII based on speculation are allowed, but not based on spoilers. Based on spoilers means that they are discussing spoilers, and that is not allowed in the NSA forum. *** 1) * Any pic released after the date that they start sharing pictures may be linked to, but not embedded. When linking to a new officially released pic, please give a small spoiler warning. 2) *Pics and descriptions of Episode VII toys are only allowed in the toys/merchandise thread. 3) Any material from the Episode VII novelization is considered spoiler, with the exception of the cover art only. 4) Any material from The Art of Star Wars: Episode VII 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 that 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 Episode VII mods. *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.
