With Skyward Sword seeing its first release in Europe, as well as leaked information in the past few days, the staff of the Forbidden Underwoods would like to remind you of etiquette regarding Spoilers:


1. Under no circumstances should end-game or mid-game spoilers be revealed, intentionally/accidentally in the shoutbox. The shoutbox is the most public and sometimes just 'unseeable' location on the forums, as most active members use it very frequently. Spoiler tags do not work there, and thus spoilers should not be posted text-wise. There is a single exception to this as I'm about to give you in a very detailed and professional example:

ex. this is actually top to bottom, wow!

Zeldaeinsteinisdahbomb « Thu Nov 24, 2011 2:20 pm » 'Hey guiz, whassup. This here video/article/photo/poem/detailed thesis I'm about to linkage you all to has some spoilers in it. Be warned :troll:'
Zeldaeinsteinisdahbomb « Thu Nov 24, 2011 2:21 pm » 'The video/article/photo/poem/wut' I just spoke of goes here.
DekuLordisrad « Thu Nov 24, 2011 2:21 pm » 'Why thanks good citizen for warning me prior of what that link was going to be. I have thus avoided spoilers! Like a boss. BD

The wrong choice:
newbiemcchubloser « Thu Nov 24, 2011 2:25 pm » OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG GUIZ, FI IS ACTUALLY YOUR LONG LOST HALF COUSIN
Zetsuyoutotallysuper « Thu Nov 24, 2011 2:26 pm » FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

2. If you wish to contribute to existing Skyward Sword topics with some information that is spoiler-natured, use the Spoiler tags... and use them correctly. If you think what you're posting is a spoiler, then be safe and slap some BBCode around it!

ex.

Spoiler:
I am 4 hours in and I'm having a hard time beating
Spoiler: show
the first dungeon boss, the great Cthulhu riding a Stalfos Leviathan


Not really a spoiler, but it is up to your discretion about the tags:

Hey, in the first dungeon make sure you don't miss
Spoiler: show
the heart piece hiding in the carcass of the first laser pig miniboss
-This is not really that terrible an infraction without the tags. Remember, some people may overreact if you don't have the spoiler tags!

3. If a new topic is started that contains plot discussion or other revelations, make sure the topic title is accompanied by 'Contains Spoilers!'.



The following penalties will be considered:

For a shoutbox infraction you just might receive a Medal of Shame. You don't want that!
For a second shoutbox infraction you may face a warning being issued, tainting your sparkly record
For a third shoutbox infraction you may face a temporary ban for a part of the listed dates, or the entire period.

For any topic infractions, either through posting in pre-existing topics or creating new topics without properly assigned notices in the header, you will face the same infractions as listed above, but without the temporary ban.*

These infractions are up to the staff's discretion. You may receive a Medal of Shame, but if someone feels you've greatly wronged the Spoiler Rules, *you might jump to a temp ban already, even if it is NOT a shoutbox infraction! Perma-bans will not occur unless under extreme circumstances.

Remember, testing the staff is never a smart choice. If someone posts spoilers during a time when no staffer is present at the shoutbox, feel free to issue a PM to the staffer of choice listing the member and time of the incident, copypasta will be accepted... as much as the staff wishes not to see spoilers either.



This etiquette is expected of ALL members. Special treatment will not be given whether your join date says '2006' or '2011'. The listed dates may be expanded at request, Twilight Princess spoilers were still being shunned 6 months after release and the idea that '6 months' is a suitable period has been discussed previously by staff.



-Love, The Authority of the Forbidden Underwoods.

Darth Citrus the Lord
Deku Lord the Rad
Tetromino the Witch
Zeldaeinstein the Bomb

This notice will be extended for three more months, after which all previous statements will be void and everyone can spoil their little brains out.

Breaking of these rules from this point forward MAY result in lesser sentences, and just like always: Don't test them or the limits, the results will not be pretty. ;D

Thanks for listening, guiz 8O

THUS, the Spoiling of Skyward Sword may commence!

If you feel bad about spoiling though... you can use the tags still :P. There will no longer be the threat of punishment looming over your heads... just in time for Hyrule Trivia ;D.
