So. As season 2 of the Musketeers is starting in 6 days (!!!!), I've decided to launch a quick last-minute fill-a-thon. So the current round of prompts will be closed for new prompts until 2nd January, when the new season starts. And then we fill fill fill.

Now, we're also going to need some kind of spoiler policy for the new episodes. I thought of two possibilities.

1. We just have a big spoiler policy for the entire 2nd season until like after a week after it finishes airing. However that means until after the ten new episodes have aired, every single prompt pertaining to season 2 will need a spoiler warning.

2. We just have spoiler warnings until the next episode airs. Like you have to warn for spoilers for season 2 episode 1 until season 2 episode 2 has aired and so forth.

I'd love if I could get some intput on this so we have a decision by the time we need it.

Please comment. :) Also happy Holidays, everyone.

(has anyone else noticed I don't have a user pic? I really should get one. lol)

I'm so excited!!

Whilst I personally think that the responsibility for avoiding spoilers sits with the individual who doesn't want to see them and you'd be pretty daft to come here if you're behind on the episodes, I also think that writing 'spoiler warning for s2' in the subject line won't be a hardship for any of us.

So, I vote for the first. The second option will be confusing because I believe that it's airing in the US two weeks after the UK so when the next episode airs is different for all of us. Just saying that we put spoiler warnings for all season 2 up until whatever decided date, seems a lot simpler.

Can the free-for-all prompt post still be a choose-not-to-warn experience, even for spoilers? (my preference)

I do think having a spoiler warning policy for the other thread is a good idea. Agreed that, this being the case, option one is better than two.

I agree -- no spoiler warnings for the 'free for all' post.

I agree that participating here probably means you should probably put any aversion to spoilers aside. :)

However, understanding that can't always be the case, I vote for option one, with just "Spoilers" or "Spoilers S2" or "Spoilers ep 14" or whatever in the subject line. With no warnings needed for the free-for-all thread, spoilers or otherwise, to stay true to its purpose.

Yep, it starts on the 17th here. But I don't mind spoilers, so I'm ready to read!! :-)

I think curiosity will get the better of most people anyway, but maybe shortening the warning to a simple moniker like SW S2 ? or S2S so people can make up their own minds.

If I were a newbie to the list, I'd probably have no idea what SW or S2S meant, and I'm lousy at figuring out acronyms anyway. But I'm cool with just putting "Spoilers" in the subject line. No different than putting "Non-con" or something like that.

I agree with what seems to be the prevailing opinion-- overarching spoiler warning for series 2, rather than individual episodes, and no spoiler warnings in the Free-for-All post.

However, if you'd like to cover the Americans on the meme, it might be nice to extend the warning period for at least two or three weeks after the final episode airs in the UK, rather than one. As someone else pointed out, BBC America will be airing the series starting on January 17th.

I'm with the current consensus.

I'd prefer heavy spoiler warnings, but with 2-3 weeks after each episode for the sake of us non-Brits watching (not just Americans).

Yes, it's obvious there will be spoilers, and the books were published 200+ years ago so we should all know how the story ends (riiiiight?), but many are and will be looking for prompts/posting prompts and fills from season 1 still. So be kind, please spoiler warn? ;)

Since they're really not following the books, I don't think we need to worry about the book spoiling anything. :) So, agreed, spoiler warnings are very doable.

Okay, something that just occurred to me after reading the previous response... no idea if it would be more or less of a pain to enforce.

What about closing Round three early? Then a person who didn't want to be spoiled and was looking for Series 1 prompts could browse Rounds one, two, and three to their hearts content, in relative safety.

Round four could still require general Series 2 spoiler warnings.

I'm not sure closing round 3 would really work, or really I think it might just complicate the whole thing, since fills from the earlier rounds could ostensibly still contain spoilers, and therefore would need spoiler warnings.

I think a blanket policy is going to be easier for the mod, and the participates, rather than trying to delineate so specifically. Which is my I'm more for the option that requires spoiler warnings until the entire season is over (for both the US and UK), rather than trying to go episode by episode.

I think just a general general Season 2 spoiler warning works and is not too much fuss to remember.

What is happening exactly?, are we posting prompts on page twelve of meme three or waiting for meme four to come up?

Okay, thankyou for the speedy response

So spoiler warnings for the episode in question and additional warnings for usually warned-for content. That sounds good. Let's do that.

Can we re-open the prompts now? Because I'm brimming with ideas and can't WAIT to write things down. Happy writing, people! Gogogo :D

I thought we were doing a blanket Series 2 spoiler warning - not episode by episode.

Eh, I'm fine with either warning system. I just want the prompts to re-open :D

I just didn't want there to be confusion. Since the mod stated above that we would be going with a blanket series 2 warning before you'd posted your comment, I didn't know if you were maybe pushing for it to be the other way, or just hadn't caught the comment.

Question: Do I put "S2 spoilers" in the subject line and nothing else, if what I'd usually put into the subject line could be considered a spoiler? How finicky are we being about this? Does a pairing featuring an S2 character constitute a spoiler I need to keep out of the subject line?

Wanted to know if new stories are going to be posted here or if you are going to start up a new site elsewhere.
I know quite alot of them here went up over at Archive where I finished reading them.
Just curious as especially S3 is around the corner.
