In the interest of not spoiling the results while allowing "real time" discussions, here are a few simple guidelines to use when posting information about current/recent competitions:
∙ New threads should include the word "(SPOILERS)" in the title. It gives the viewer a fair warning.
∙ Please make the first post innocuous, so when a viewer runs their mouse over it, they don't get a blurb with a spoiler in it. This post can just say "WARNING: THIS THREAD CONTAINS SPOILERS!"
∙ Your "real" post can then be the second post and hooray, we're off and spoiling, chitting and chatting!
∙ If you want to talk about the action during or after a competition (this includes warmups, btw), make sure the thread has the "SPOILER" warning in the title.
Be discreet if the thread you're in is not a spoiler thread. Don't give away the information.
Word it carefully and discreetly, or use the spoiler tags.Spoiler Tags:
[ spoiler ] text containing spoiler [ /spoiler ] (no spaces)
[spoiler] text containing spoiler [/spoiler]

when creating/editing a post, use the SPOILER icon
