I've posted this in the Harry Potter book thread but I also wanted to post it in its own thread because I don't want to have anyone spoiled or anyone post a spoiler in the wrong place or as a thread, etc and get in trouble. Here is the policy: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out this week. The Harry Potter Spoiler policy is in effect board wide. This means: Spoilers must be HTR for one month after the release of the book, unless posted in a an official designated spoiler thread in those forums that have designated threads. No spoilers of any kind in thread titles, signatures, or unsolicited PMs. In forums with designated spoiler threads (e.g. SFF or YJCC), spoilers should only be posted there and should follow spoiler policy for that particular forum. Bans will not be automatic, but on a case-by-case basis based on the TOS (e.g if someone is clearly trolling). DO NOT PM spoilers, fake or not, to other users unless they have been asked for; this is bad.
