It’s getting to be that time of year– when we all get really excited because of the DVDs coming out and s3 fast approaching! It’s also time for us to remind everyone about our spoiler policy.
This is taken directly from the user info:
1. We make every attempt to note spoilers for fic, pics, and icons when we see them, but sometimes we don’t see them. Please understand that it is up to each reader to be aware of that when clicking on links to unfamiliar journals. Once an episode has aired in the U.S., the title and characters may be mentioned in the newsletter.
2. If you have ANY spoilers outside of a cut-tag for an episode that has not yet aired in the United States — text or pictures — and we see your post while compiling the newsletter, you will lose the privilege of being linked in the newsletter indefinitely. No warnings, no exceptions.
3. If you leave a direct link in a comment for the newsletter to a post that contains spoilers, even behind a cut-tag, and you do not warn for the spoilers (since clicking on the link will bypass the cut-tag), you will lose the privilege of being linked in the newsletter indefinitely. No warnings, no exceptions.
Plainest terms possible? ANYTHING from s3 as of this very moment must be cut. It doesn’t matter if the spoilers seem to be known to everyone, it still must be cut if you want us to link your posts and remain on the NL watch list. We have a lot of compilers, myself included, who don’t want to be spoiled really randomly while collecting links so this is to protect not just the other people who read the NL but ourselves as well.
Once the episode has aired you can do whatever you want but until then, please use clearly labeled cut tags if you want to continue being linked.
If you have general comments or suggestions, feel free to see this post. I’m screening comments on this post but if you have something applicable to say on the issues of spoilers I’ll unscreen it.
