    So far, just from looking at the front page, I have seen lines of dialogue, discussion on the ending of Rogue One, and I now know that at least one character from the Rogue One team survives the movie. I saw these in the "Latest Cantina Forum Posts" sidebar on the main page, and the one about the surviving cast member was spoiled in the title of an article.

    I'm not likely to see Rogue One for a month or more because I live in the middle of nowhere but I'd like to be able to keep reading the site. Normally I'm all over spoilers but RO has been very well contained and since the movie is out and I know little about it I hope to keep it that way until I see it.

    I don't really have a solution or suggestion though, nor do I think SWNN is obligated to even shield readers from spoilers, so I don't know.

    My good friend, I don't want to sound rude but my advise to you is that if you really don't want to know anything more about the movie you should just avoid SW pages until you see the movie cause in one way or another, spoilers are always going to show up.

    As you said so yourself, with just a simple title many important elements can be revealed to you but I have to say and I do think I speak for all here in the Cantina, it's not the intention of anyone here to ruin the movie for you yet you should really avoid the page. Just opening it can lead to titles like ''Why did Han kill Greedo?'' or ''How could Leia choke Jabba?'' and this will instantly ruin your fun.

    This is a tricky issue. However, I took a look at the past week's worth of posts in the Rogue One forum and didn't find any title that gave away anything in the movie. I understand your caution, and I appreciate your reminder to us to be conscientious about this sort of thing. But at least right now I don't see anything you need to worry about. If you have a particularly jarring example, let me know.

    Will do, thanks. I bought tickets for opening day in the city 2 hours from here but severe weather stopped me from going. As soon as the roads clear up I'm going for it!

    Right now there is a "Latest Cantina Forum Post" on the main page that just informed me that
    "although most everyone we follow through R1 dies..."
    through the first few lines of the thread. Maybe just thread titles can be shown in that section?

    Obviously you cant keep spoilers away forever and people who have seen it should be able to have a good time discussing everything but the movie just came out mere days ago. Today I learned that Vader likes to crack jokes throughout the movie because I am subbed to a SWBF channel on youtube and they thought it was a good idea to post that in their video title and description.

    Being a spoiler hound is much easier lol.

    I don't see that thread, but I see what you mean. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to change the coding of the main page in order to eliminate that, nor can I recommend to others how they start their threads. I think this is just a case of not looking at that particular section of the website for the time being.

    Fortunately, I don't think that line will impact your first viewing of the movie. Lots of surprises. ;)

    Cheers SWNN team. I ignored the TV spots and supercut trailers for RO and enjoyed being able to navigate the blog, forum, and film while avoiding all potential spoilers.

    I want to write a spoilery humoristic reply to your post concerning the fate of rogue-one members, but I'm afraid I will be banned for it lol
