E & A guidelines - spoilers & ettiquette.
Use of Spoiler Tags

TV Shows


The community was polled on this issue, to determine if spoiler tags should be used at all. The votes fell in favour of keeping them. This left the question of when they need to be used. Many people receive new episodes digitally these days, putting them a step ahead of local broadcasts. We need to be fair to all users, so the rule for TV shows is as follows:
  • Spoiler tags must be used until everyone has had the chance to catch up. Once an episode has aired locally, open discussion may commence.

We ask that users help to provide airing information, so everyone knows when open discussion can start. If you're starting a new thread for a TV show, please include this in the OP. Example:

Quote:

US: Tuesday 10:00pm on FX
AU: Wednesday 5.20pm on Showcase

Books, Movies and Other Content
  • Significant plot points require spoiler tags, regardless of the age of the material.

Note: Occasionally an E&A thread may be deemed exempt from spoiler tag rules. In this case the title will contain: [spoilers]

Illegal Downloads
  • Discussion of illegal downloads is not allowed on ITM, period.
This includes links, site names, file names, winks and nudges, or clever euphemisms. This also extends to accusations of piracy against other users. Bear in mind that we have an international membership, and someone watching something before you does not mean they obtained it illegally. If you have concerns about a post, use the report function.

Be Excellent
It's ok to not like things. You can voice negative opinions in a thread, but don't hang around hating on things you're not even watching. Trolling and personal attacks will not be tolerated.

Breaking any of the above rules may result in an instant 24hr ban, or longer for repeat offences.

So let's get our idiot boxes on, remember to be excellent, and have some fun.
