TBY Guides - When Should I Use The Spoiler Function?

Most people on here are net savvy enough to be familiar with spoiler etiquette, but for those who may not be....

You should use a spoiler when:

* Posting nudies or images that may be offensive or disturbing to others. Many of us visit TBY at work, so while a particular image might not offend us, it might offend a boss or co-worker and bring some drama. Obviously pornography and images of Ryan Adams shirtless are not acceptable at any time, but nude images are usually okay as long as they are spoilered and clearly marked NSFW (not safe for work). The same applies to images of graphic violence or horror. Video links should be similarly marked NSFW.

* When discussing plot details of movies, books and TV shows. Obviously, no-one wants to ruin the ending for someone who hasn't seen a particular film etc.

When to use spoilers very often requires a judgment call from the poster, but when in doubt, it's probably best to err on the side of caution and spoiler it up anyhow.

There is a spoiler button on the top far right of your screen when you create a post. If you are Amish and like to do things the old fashioned way, type [ SPOILER ] whatever you want to say [/ SPOILER ] but without the spaces.

I have thought about it, but there are a lot of them and I thought it might get annoying.

Okay, so I stickied them all to see how it looks. Easier to find, but it makes the forum pretty top heavy I think. Anyhow, I'm going to lunch so it can stay there for a while.

i figured that it wouldn't matter so much in this forum since it's not one we use very often anyway. and it makes the guides easily accessible to newbies. it saves people from making new threads if they don't see these ones.

I agree - since this forum is for suggestions and questions, then someone may be able to easily find the answer to what they want to know if it's one of the stickies, then it won't need another thread.
