    Well, it's really just the official photo of the confirmed actors at a read-through. I know we've contained discussion of the casting announcements to just one thread in here, but does anyone consider that to be a spoiler? We can get it removed if we need to.

    Edit: I'm looking into just getting it taken down.

    I assume the new banner is OK and not considered a spoiler. :p

    The banner in here should just say "The other forums have really cool banners that someone put a lot of effort and creativity into for you. You get this text".

    Oh man, now we know the timeframe for VII (a long time ago) AND the setting (in a galaxy far, far away). THANKS, EHT.

    That's not a given. The film may or may not involve extensive use of flashbacks as well as time travel. It may even take place on Earth. Have fun speculating. And sleeping tonight.

    I'm in my sub-sub-basement underneath my underground silo in the remotest part of Montana. Do you think that's enough?

    This is kinda "CNN Headline" worthy info. Be wary.

    That bunker must be helloa fortified, does it just have a direct line to the NSA forum?

    Part of me wonders if this whole idea I had to go spoiler-free wasn't completely fruitless. I've a feeling that I'll end up seeing these spoilers from someone who just tweets it or something without thinking about the fact that other folks don't want to be spoiled. It's really, really tough to be spoiler-free in the age of social media.

    Luckily, my social media circles are pretty small for various reasons. Friends IRL that would know any spoilers also know I don't want to hear them any more. It's a rather boring venn diagram.

    The only SW updates I get from people in real life are along the lines of "hey, did you hear they're making a new movie?!".

    Until yesterday, I was the person that my friends went to for rumors.

    Yeah... keep in mind, the people saying that to me know that I'm a huge SW fan (although they don't know I'm a mod on a SW forum :p). And yet they still let me know that level of information, just in case.

    I haven't seen anything come across my screen that resembles a spoiler yet, now that a day has passed...has anyone seen the media picking it up? Might have to limit exposure to news sites from now on.

    Nope, I haven't seen it anywhere, which leads me to believe the spoiler actually is so massive other sites don't want to touch it.

    I saw it yesterday on a regular news site from the UK, I think, and I heard it was in a couple of other places too. The one I saw was behind big "Spoilers follow!" warnings.

    That's a step-up from mine, normally I have to tell them there is a new movie. For a Star Wars nut like me, it's sometimes, well, you can probably guess...[face_laugh]

    There have been a couple news stories on yahoo.com for the past couple days that have spoiler potential right in their titles. So it might be safest to just avoid yahoo.

    Luckily, one of my best friends seems to be a big SW nut like me, and told me a rumour that I didn't even know of at the time. I was impressed. Another of my friends is more like "hey, did you hear they released a trailer?", and that would've been in January.
