I figure I'd mention this before it shows up. Probably shouldn't, but somebody's gonna forget. If anybody posts a movie and decides that they're going to give away part of the plot, could I please askk that you put the word Spoiler in the message? That way, if someone who hasn't seen the movie wants to go see it, they'll know that they're coming across a post that reveals something about the movie. Their call if they bypass it or not.

EDIT: Good Idea Steelpimp. Consider it done! Very Happy

So, if say for example, I told you that Howard the Duck returns to his home planet at the end, then I have spoiled it for all who haven't seen it, right?

Oops. Embarassed

Mostly it's for new releases. If a few slip by, and no trouble appears, I may drop it, but just so that a fair warning comes up. That way, I don't have people complaining about the fact that

Maybe rename the topic Movie spoilers rules.

Just a suggestion!

I'd also suggest a one year rule...if it's more then a year old..."Whoa....look what Aragorn did to that Orc who killed Boromir" we don't need to bother...however it's newer then a year..."Man a living did you see what happened to Frodo in (blank) when the (blank) tried to snatch him?" in LOTR:TT we put spoiler notes....but for older then year...why bother? If you haven't seen it yet, it's your fault.....

Very Happy

I figured it was common sense, but yeah, if it's older than about a year, I would say it's at least optional; I won't hold ya to it.
