Spoilers Anonymous 12616

So season 4 is rapidly approaching, and although I'm not one of them, there are going to inevitably be a ton of people who want to avoid spoilers but still come here.

People can certainly spoiler text and images, but I think a better idea, if possible, would be to have a #Spoiler tag for threads that works basically the same as the #Mature tag–people can make them all hidden in the settings.

I feel like this would save people a lot of trouble when it comes to spoilers. Is this possible?

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I'm just not reading threads anymore. No spoilers for me this time.

Eh, it's pretty easy to just hide the threads if you have even a scratch of willpower.

Our rule is usually: Any spoilers regarding the upcoming episode are to be spoilered. There's no real need to create a tag for it, just common sense from both parts.

On the day the episode is out, spoilers are still recommended, otherwise if you haven't seen the ep and care about spoilers that much you should probably, like, watch it.

I think the idea is neat. We have a tagging feature, it just seems like it would be cool.
Though, if it's not a feature, I would like to see people personally put a hashtag at the top of threads just because it seems like it's courtesy.

However, the reason I think a S4 spoiler feature would be cool is because it allows everyone who doesn't want to be spoiled to enjoy the show at their own pace or at the best pace they're allowed. This way, it's not down to "Too bad, you need to be more on top of the show if you want to post at all"

It allows watchers of all types, to those who watch it day one to those who wait for reruns to those who specifically wait for HD downloads. There are watchers of all types, and a simple feature would accommodate that more than an unspoken rule.
Though, that's just for threads. I guess outside of spoilery threads, people should hold more personal non feature based standards.

One would hope, but I've seen otherwise far too often.
Too many people complain about things that they should just hide.

But…
We already have a spoiler feature.
Meant for that

I know. It's a little redundant, I understand.
I'm just offering why I think the idea is neat. It would allow people to spoiler an entire thread with out having it spoilered to those participating in the thread. It's just a convenience tool, no accidental "Whoops, didn't spoiler that." because the whole thread is just not visible to those who want to remain spoiler free.

But I understand if this idea goes by the wayside, it's technically not needed.

How about a #tag that makes only the opening post of a thread appear on the basic page?

Such a tag could be used for any spoilerrific thread (whether FiM or not) by simply not putting spoilers in the opening post (and warning of spoilers in the OP.)

I was just about to make a post asking about the "official" spoiler policy over here, but your post was here, all ready and waiting. Are there any plans of pasting this somewhere on /pony/ or other relevant boards as a reminder or is it just left here as is?
