Don’t ruin some ones pleasure of a film by openly posting a Spoiler.
What is a Spoiler? A spoiler is something that gives a major plot line away such as a major character being killed, past characters coming back, aliens turning up, or that the butler did it (no matter how old the program or film). Knowing such crucial plot details in advance can often ruin the enjoyment of the program or film, especially when twists are integral to visual experience.
This refers to all films no matter how old, just because a film has been out for many a year it does not mean everyone has seen the film or knows everything about it.
So how do we discus something that comes in that category: As a courtesy to other readers of the post before give something away, please right click over the spoiler text to highlight it, then click on the shhhh smiley icon on the bar just above where your typing your post, and this will make the text invisible to all but those that wish to read it by highlighting it.
Lastly if you see a spoiler please do not quote it, all it does is compound it. If you see one and need to comment on it and say the persons “What you have posted is a SPOILER.” This gives the person a chance to edit it and correct there mistake, but if you quote them it will still be there for others to read.
Also “What you have posted is a SPOILER.” will alert me to edit the Spoilers post if they have not done so themselves in the mean time.
Thank you and happy viewing
Please do not directly link pictures to 3rd party sites so they appear on this forum. If you wish to to have pictures in your post please use a picture hosting site such as Photobucket, Imageshack etc. The alternatives are adding a clickable link to the photo or use the Manage Attachments in the post a reply section.
Note on swearing. There are certain words that are not allowed to be used on the forum; these words have been added to a filter so they cannot be used. If they are they will be stared out e.g. if I tried to post a four letter swear word I would get **** posted. If you use alternate characters, spell it an other way or even use *s in the word, even using *s all but one of the letters it will be classed as you are trying to circumvent the filter. This is not allowed.
If you wish to indicate a swear word it is best to use the icon found in the [More] section of the smileys.
Further to the above amendment that was on 05-10-2007
As people are still refusing to use spoiler tags and spoiling films for others breaking the above rules I will be giving mandatory days away from the forum to those that do and a likelihood of infractions for anyone quoting a un-tagged spoiler.
Also asking a spoiler question is likely to to incur the same if its not tagged.
If you cannot use the smiley do the following or wait to use a computer which should allow the use of the Shhhh smiley.
Put [SPOI LER] at the front of the spoiler text and then [/SPOI LER] at the end but remove the spaces I put in SPOILER
