When talking about specific films or TV series (which will be labeled as 'pieces of fiction'), posting information about the events portrayed in them is common, as is posting leaked footage, information and similar things. Spoilers include about any plot detail. Here is a spoiler policy that you should follow when posting in this section.
- When posting leaked information for an upcoming piece of fiction, it is absolutely necessary to post it under spoiler tags without any explicit reference to the leaked details outside the spoiler tags -- save for announcing that the spoiler tags contain said leaked details.
Rumours may or may not be considered leaked details, but the same policy has to be followed.
Official presses or officially released information (such as confirmed casting roles or trailers) are not leaked information, and thus can be posted freely without any spoiler tags. Likewise, people should be free to watch or not to watch trailers (or officially released footage), so when discussing something that is portrayed in trailers (or officially released footage), it is necessary to post it under spoiler tags.
- When posting spoilers from a piece of fiction that has been released or aired within a year before your post, it is necessary to post the spoilers under spoiler tags. If they are contained in a review, you can put the whole review or just the spoiler details under spoiler tags (it is indifferent).
- When posting spoilers from a piece of fiction that has been released or aired more than one year before your post, spoiler tags are advised, but not strictly necessary.
Any clarifications or questions are welcome.
