This topic is about instigating a forum rule on Ludicom.
A rule against spoilers.
I would like to have this rule made official in the forum rules of course.

We all know that having spoilers being revealed is shocking and can ruin the fun of a game, a show, a series, a movie, a novel, etc.
That is why something must be done against it.

Of course, we don't have the luxury of having spoiler tags on Ludicom but,
we have an alternative. The 'Black Glow'.
The 'Black Glow' as I have named it is simply this:
Have a black text (standard colored text) in a black glow tag.
The code for it is as follows:
Code:
[glow=black,2,300][/glow]
Where the only thing you need to do is select your text, apply the 'Glow' tag -- and change the 'red' to 'black'.

As for the rule, what I would suggest would be this.
Someone spoils something, they get a warning.
The same person spoils a second time, they get a second warning.
And at the third warning, they are temporarily banned.
When their temporary ban is lifted and they still spoil, then it's permanent ban.

Also, moderators and admins should either put the 'Black Glow' on spoils that need it when and if they see it and warn the person or just warn the person so they do it themselves.

I believe there are already rules like this one on many other forums and I believe we need it here too.

Thanks for your time.



PS: I get really out of control when someone spoils something even if it doesn't regard my own interests at all. I apologize for all I have said and am truly sorry if I hurt someone's feelings.

I understand Mag, I hate when people spoils something too, It ruined hours of waiting and fun if you know what happened in the end. I agree on this rule to the fullest.

Yeah I agree that this should be a rule.

BTW who was the genius who came up with the black glow spoiler tags? Roll Eyes

Steel, I'm normally a very passive person, but I do have my limits. So either fix the forum, or I'll track your ass down, strap an explosive to you and throw you in a river, and when the explosive goes off, people will think it was just a failed terrorist act. Seriously, you better have saved everything you took off the forum.

I feel inclined to agree that I am a genius but I wasn't THE genius who came up with the black glow spoiler tags.

I am. I was doing it white at first though because white was fabulous.
Then, I think it was Starrk or Matt who said it was simpler to just do it black.
I'm not a genius though. Shocked

We shouldnt ban spoilers that's silly, what if people want to talk about what happened in something, it should be allowed just hidden in tags
but we DEFINITELY should have spoiler tags..but the black glow thing is silly, we need to add spoiler tags from an smf thing, I know all the free ones can get it so it should be fine.

Are spoiler tags available for free smf forums?

The black glow thing should suffice for now, but if it is possibel to add the spiler tags I think it would be great. I checked and see no mention of it on the admin panel, if Kloud knows more I'm sure she'll let you know.

[spoiler]testing[/spoiler]

In terms of the rule aspect, would everyone like to vote on it asin an official poll?

I know this is directly influenced by what happened in the tot, but in the future now that this was brought up, it would be good to have this in place. Spoiling something for someone can be rude as proven already. I hope you guys can take precaution in the future when posting spoilers to shows, movies, etc

No. It's spoiling that's stupid.
It's something little kids do. I believe we are all mature enough to keep it clean of spoilers.

The black glow isn't silly. It's a tool.
Kloud already said she checked for spoiler tags and it wasn't available for smfforfree.
I already discussed it with her before.
There was no need for a topic like this one though since there wasn't any spoiling done. However, now is a different issue.

I've spoiled stuff before, but only at the request of others, and even then I try not to reveal the truly key points or elaborate too much on it. I'll start using the Black Glow Spoilers, which should be easy for me to remember as it's acronym is BGS, a grading type in Magic The Gathering.

I also support Magoo, and say that we should have punishments for spoiling. It must be driven through that ruining other things for people is NOT okay, even if one person asks for it. If that last bit I said makes me accountable for my own errs, then I accept any punishment given to me. However, I do believe that this should not be done retroactively, but from this point forward. Also, in my own opinion, it should not be voted on by the people, as many people here spoil, and would inherently vote against it. I do believe that it should happen, but only after deliberation by the moderators, to decide if such a decision would positively affect us.

Adding to that, if someone does want to know just PM instead of spoiling it for all the other people that may see it.

It is forbidden, asking why is irrelevant.
