    I posted this in the GIL thread, but it probably warrants a broad announcement:

    Just so you unspoiled types are aware, be on alert around the rest of your interwebbing & magazine browsing... it has begun.


    Yes, sure. If you or other non-spoiler fans want to take it upon yourselves to identify each and every book, magazine, tv program, etc. which contain spoilers. It is not the responsibility of this site's staff to maintain your approach to fandom for you. When it comes to spoilers...

    would this be a good place to post alerts about certain items that contain spoilers? And general alerts like the one above?

    I tried to find it but couldn't - we should get two decent siren sounds. One for Spoiler Is Fresh when you all know to pull the plugs on all technology and another for Spoiler No Longer So Popular when it's clear to plug it all back in.

    Leave your home address so we can send the All Clear Siren Truck to let you know when it's safe.

    GMTA Myke. I hadn't even opened this thread when I posted my idea in the GIL thread.

    Here's my first one: if you all subscribe to TF.N's Facebook feed, you might want to hide it for now. I'd say ditto with other Star Wars related Facebook feed, although the "Sci Fi and Fantasy Rocks My World" page is safe at the moment.

    I posted this in the NSA GIL thread a few days ago, but this seems like a good place to put this reminder too.

    For those of you here in the NSA forum who are also active in the SA forum, please remember to NOT say anything here in NSA about what is being discussed over in the SA forums.

    I've seen posts recently that talk about the discussions over there, and the tendency if people aren't careful could be to say "oh, they're just discussing X, but that hardly seems like a spoiler". The problem with that, of course, is that X may very well constitute a spoiler to some people in NSA, since everyone has their own level of how spoiler-free they are.

    Hey, isn't that Star Trek? :p

    Thanks for the heads-up, Chorus! I'll remember not to Google 'Star Wars' anymore.

    AFAIC, it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too early to start worrying about spoilers on teh interwebz. There may actually be something out there which is accurate but right now I'd say something is 20 times more likely to be made up nonsense than an accurate spoiler. So anything I bump into gets easily forgotten.

    Will a December release date make it harder to avoid spoilers? All that ep. 7 Star Wars branded stuff will probably be stocked up on shelves by the start of Nov (for X-Mas present buying, of course).

    First pic from production was Tweeted today, confirming a returning character. Depending on how unspoiled you are aiming to be, now is probably the time to begin carving your eyes out.

    A new actor has been announced to have been cast. The timeframe makes it a safe assumption that this is probably the first of many such inevitable announcements. Beware.

    Not just that but they said what type of character he's playing. Kinda hard to ignore some of this stuff.

    Does anyone 'round here frequent imdb? Is there SW spoilers on their home page?

    Yes. Some accurate, some edited fancasting.
