    Exclamation About posting spoilers. (updated: 30th June 07) [Read]

    What is a spoiler?
    A spoiler is considered anything that is not know up to the current scanlated chapter.

    If there is information in the raws that has not yet been revealed within the scanlated chapters, it is a spoiler (this includes hinting about information contained in un-scanlated chapters).


    How to post a spoiler.
    Personally I would rather that you did not post spoilers or talk about raws outside of the raw discussion thread, but if you must post a spoiler, it should be done in the following format.

    [SPOILER]
    Spoiler goes here, all text must be white.
    You can post hyperlinks to images, but not the images themselves.
    [/SPOILER]

    It should look something like this (highlight to reveal text):

    [SPOILER]
    Spoiler goes here, all text must be white.
    You can post hyperlinks to images, but not the images themselves.
    [/SPOILER]

    You don't have to use those exact tags, just as long as they indicate that you are posting a spoiler (however please include square brackets).


    Quoting.
    It is illegal to quote spoilers (weather posted correctly or not, since it reveals the spoiler and remains in your post even if theirs is deleted).
    Any user found quoting a spoiler will be treated as if they had posted the spoiler themselves.
    If you see a spoiler an want to complain about it, don't quote the post and complain about it, PM me instead and I will deal with it.


    Threads about raws or spoilers.
    Any raw discussion thread or thread that intentionally contains spoilers, must contain either [RAW] or [SPOILERS] in the thread title.


    Previous chapter threads.
    You may not post any information in a thread about a specific chapter that had not been revealed in or before that chapter.
    e.g. You may not post anything that is learned after chapter 150, in a thread about chapter 150 (or earlier), even if current sacanlations are past chapter 150 (A spoiler from chapter 152 may not be posted in a thread about chapter 151 or lower).
    This rule only applies to threads about specific chapters or if the OP has stated that s/he has not read past a certain chapter.


    Punishment.
    The rules state that a user must warn others if they are posting a spoiler, since I have now defined what a spoiler is and indicated what is regarded in this section as sufficient warning, there is absolutely no excuse for posting a spoiler without warning (remember, even hinting at what happens in future chapters is considered a spoiler).

    Users who do not follow the above rules will be warned once and the spoiler completely removed from their post, the second time the user will be banned for 2 weeks (longer depending on the significance of the spoiler). Repeat offenders will be banned permanently (seriously, if you can't follow the rules and have to be punished 2 to 3 times for the same offence, I don't see why you should get a third chance).


    Exception to these rules.
    Raw discussion threads do not need to use the above described format for posting spoilers (but must contain the [RAW] tag in the title), unless the OP has specifically stated that s/he has not read past a certain chapter. Any information revealed in chapters after that, is considered a spoiler and must be posted using the correct format.

    Updated the rules regarding spoilers to now include rules about quoting spoilers and punishments for offenders.
    Please familiarise yourselves with them.

    By the way, for now at least, warnings and bans are held against your record permanently and do not expire (I keep copies of the PMs I sent you, so I will know if you have any previous convictions).

    If you have any problems or questions, don't hesitate to PM me.

    Updated to include rules about postion spoilers in threads about previous chapters.

    Previous chapter threads.
    You may not post any information in a thread about a specific chapter that had not been revealed in or before that chapter.
    e.g. You may not post anything that is learned after chapter 150, in a thread about chapter 150 (or earlier), even if current sacanlations are past chapter 150 (A spoiler from chapter 152 may not be posted in a thread about chapter 151 or lower).
    This rule only applies to threads about specific chapters or if the OP has stated that s/he has not read past a certain chapter.
    If you have any questions or problems, please don't hesitate to PM me.

    I probably won't enforce this unless someone complains about something someone posts.
    Oh, and be warned when posting in a previous chapter thread, most people only read Kuu scans, so they don't know what happens in sora scans.
