    There is a possible spoiler in the

    "? Palpatine's midichlorian count - Wouldn't the Republic have identified him? " thread.

    AVOID IT UNTIL IT'S DECLARED SAFE.

    For future reference we can use this thread to warn all other non-spoilers of potential spoilers in EITHER the media, or (as most likely is the case) on this board.


    Thank you. :)

    Hmmm...haven't looked into that thread yet. Did you notify an admin already?

    Yeah, that's definately a spoiler. Someone needs to get an admin.

    I PMed the perpetrator. He said it was speculation. However, the manner in which he said it makes me suspicious. Either way, he said that he would edit it. I'm waiting to see if he does before I notify a moderator to step in.

    YOU HAVE 15 MINUTES TO EDIT YOUR POST DS. ;)

    It's almost pure speculation but using spy reports material - it counts as a spoiler, if only for the name.

    Darth Sin is definitely not a troll, btw, I'm sure he will edit it out ASAP - it's probably an accident.

    That's why I PMed him first. If it was someone unfamiliar I would have gone straight to a moderator. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt (THIS TIME) ;)

    Heh. An official spoiler alert thread. I bet there'll be people who'll play wolf with this thread. Don't be surprised to see the words "Just kidding" pop up once in awhile.

    Darth Sin has not edited his post, so I've contacted tonyf and DLM. It's in their hands now.

    HAVE A GREAT CINCO DE MAYO EVERYONE! :p :)

    Hopefully not. Mr. P has been doing a great job so far. He's on top of it! Let's keep this topic within the first two pages shall we? This way, anybody new that doesn't know of its existence can post warnings to us all when necessary :D

    This is a great idea for a thread. Certainly helps me out a bit. :) In any case, also PM me if you find a spoiler if I'm not in the forum at the moment.

    BTW, if anyone "plays wolf" with this thread, instaban. Spoilers are not a laughing matter. :p

    "my only concern is that people would abuse this by posting spoilers in here after a trolling spree..."

    Very serious problem. If necessary, you can start another thread called "SPOILERS IN THE *SPOILER ALERT* THREAD" and keep it at the top of the page so users have fair warning.

    In the case of a troll invasion or something, we shouldn't trust any thread because spoilers could be in it, including this one. So if we have some sort of thing that just says that there's trolls around we can evacuate while we clean it up. And another thread, if we need it, is a good thing, in case this thread gets trolled...

    Man, this sounds like a fire or something. :p

    Sadly, I can't tell if you're serious or being sarcastic.

    Thanks for the tip, KaaShamau. I personally don't think this one's a big enough spoiler to edit out but we appreciate any help we get. :)

    Hello, I will be in this forum for E3 as I think I know way too much about e2 to turn back. - Anyway, I just wanted to say this is a *GREAT* idea! My goal is to be "spoiler free" for E3. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you after E2!

    See you then.

    Can someone check out

    The Phantom Menace » Jedi uniforms

    I didn't scroll past the alert from baggles, so it might just be nothing.

    Cheers!

    Eh, there is a VINTAGE spoiler in the SILLY CREATURES thread that just resurfaced. Three months old and still alive. It seems that nobody noticed it!

    Avoid reading the old posts in the second page of the thread, I'll PM an admin to edit out a couple of names you don't want to hear about.

    This in from Sebulba 49 regarding Filmforce.net "The introduction speaks of small spoilers...and sure it doesn't tell of the leaf that rolls in front of Anakin's right foot as he takes his seventh step of the movie, but it tells a lot more than most of us want to know! You have been warned!! "
