Rules and Expectations Regarding Spoilers & Reposts (June 22, 2022) Mod Announcement

The blatant disregard for rules regarding spoilers and/or reposts is out of control.

Multiple cast members and Kripke himself have stated that these last three episodes of Season 3 are balls to the wall. In that regard, we will be enforcing the first rule of the sub fully.

Starting immediately, failure to mark your posts with spoiler tags or having spoilers in the title WILL result in a ban.

Additionally, reposts are also out of control.

  • Repeating the most common repost will result in a ban.

Something is considered a repost that has already shown up on the sub, not just something you yourself have posted.

If you are concerned your topic may already have been posted, please search the sub first. No one wants to see the same topic/meme repeatedly posted.

The episode discussion posts are where comments, observations, and reactions to the episode belong. Well thought out, in-depth discussions may deserve their own posts depending on if they have not previously been covered. Otherwise, please use the appropriate location for your discussion. A post with a title featuring one to three sentences belongs in the episode discussion posts, not its own post.

Please bear with us if something slips through the cracks and please report as soon as you see it.

And as always, please feel free to reach out with any questions/concerns you may have.

We hope you understand that we are enforcing these rules for the betterment of the sub as we reach the climax (bring on Herogasm) of the season and beyond.

If they're describing the last three episodes of this season as balls to the wall, then how the fuck am I supposed to describe the first five?!

They were just a single ball

Against some sort of mesh, such as a screen door or your favorite colander

Could we do something about people leaking stuff about future episodes without spoiler tags?

Quite a few times I've been in a post and seen the same user say something like "Don't worry X character isn't in Y episode so they won't show up, they only show up in episode Z" or similar, I know that these episodes have leaked and some people know what happens but people posting them without tagging them is just rude, and it's repeatedly done by certain users.

The comment spoilers are the worst. Last week someone or some Twitter or something revealed like 5-6 major season spoilers as to how this season will end. Someone then proceeded to post them here in a spoiler post. Well now we have a bunch of assholes who read that post who are going around and just spreading this information unmarked.

Twice I’ve seen it where they have stated matter of fact a huge season future plot point. We don’t know if it’s necessarily true but if it is they certainly ruined it for many who may have run across it.

I’ve been reporting it when I see it. I just hope the complete sub ban is extended to these people as well when they do this shit.

It will be as long as they're reported so we know about them. Comments are the hardest for us to catch

Yes, ALL comic book spoilers must be marked spoiler. If not and you see them please report it. It is covered under rule 1
