    The Spoiler Rule

    When you're watching wrestling, or any show for that matter, I'm sure plenty of you will get so excited that you want to just blurt out what you're seeing in front of you. However, there is a spoiler rule on the forum and it goes like this...

    11. Avoid Posting Spoilers
    Don't post something that might be considered a spoiler, except in proper threads/forums. When you do, provide clear warning (preferably in the thread/post title), and wrap the spoiler-y bits in the BBCode tag.
    This rule is designed primarily for games. It means that no matter how long after a game comes out, posting anything that a new player could consider a spoiler is against the rules. For example, the original Bioshock came out in 2007 and you would still get infracted for posting a spoiler in case a new player runs across it. Technically, this means that wrestling events are ALL spoilers. The main event of WrestleMania 3 is a spoiler let alone the Kickoff show for this month's pay-per-view event. Sounds ridiculous, right?

    So it was agreed that to cover this, and to account for everyone around the world who can't see events live due to time zones or other reasons out of their control, that the spoiler rule would just be in effect for just seven days for wrestling news. Therefore, I remind you that no matter what your feelings are about spoilers, how easy it is to find results elsewhere online and whatnot, that you respect others who have the same passion as you and allow them the chance to experience events as intended.

    There is a dedicated forum packed full of real-time discussion threads which are already cleared for spoiler discussion. If you need to post something based on the results, please use spoiler tags [SPOILER]Insert Text Here[/SPOILER ] (just remove the space in the second tag) and clearly put in the title that spoilers are within, without putting that spoiler in the title.

    Any posts or threads with visible spoilers will be removed and the person warned/infracted. Any questions can be sent to me via PM.

    Due to the consistency of spoilers in "prediction" threads, they will be closed or removed for the foreseeable future.

    If you have any questions, please send a PM.
