Mentos: If Lucas gives us official information on one of those "spoiler" topics, then they won't be spoilers anymore. A paradox, eh? k kanos: The discussion over SWI didn't end with my post (which you quoted above). We went on to decide that since most people who post here read SWI anyway, and since it is the official magazine, its contents shouldn't be considered spoiler material. That's been safely established. In regard to asking a council of admins to decide on a set of hard and fast rules for this forum: Never. As I think I've said before, I've seen Josh's editorial on what he considers a spoiler, I've seen TFN's guidelines, and I've seen many prominent admins rant about what should and shouldn't be allowed in the NS forum, but frankly, I don't think any of those things are relevant to us. I'm the only admin who posts to this forum regularly; what would the admins know about what should and shouldn't be allowed? I stand by Paradox's sentiment in starting this thread so long ago: That non-spoiler forum rules should be determined by the non-spoilees themselves, not by anyone else. IMHO, the open discussion in this thread has worked extremely well, and I'd like it to continue as we get closer and closer to episode 2. If the sentiments of this forum's regular posters change with time, we should adjust our forum rules to fit that. I'm starting an experiment of sorts. I'm going to post a locked topic in this forum and in the Announcements forum listing the current NS rules. The only thing I will take into consideration in writing those rules is the discussion in this thread. If we decide to modify rules in this thread, I'll change the "official" reference threads. Posting new thread... now.
