With progression of Warlords of Draenor beta testing and more content available to testers, it’s easy for story spoilers to start making a showing on the forums. Given this, we would like to continue to encourage discussion on the upcoming content, but want to provide some suggestions to help fellow forum-goers avoid accidentally reading spoilers while on the forums.
Please keep these guidelines in mind when posting story-related information:
- Threads that discuss the story and contains spoilers should have a [Spoilers] tag in the thread title. You should assume that you will see spoilers on that topic when clicking on those threads.
- Refrain from posting spoilers for the story within thread subject lines. Posting a thread title that is itself a spoiler may result in a forum suspension.
- The spoiler information is reasonable within the context of the discussion that’s taking place within the thread. Jumping into a thread to post a spoiler that’s off-topic –for example, posting spoilers to a class discussion thread–may result in a forum suspension.
These suggestions aren’t fool-proof, but we hope that everyone will be respectful to others when it comes to posting spoilers.
