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!! :-)
