    Well friends, we are just days away from being able to watch The Last Jedi!

    We wanted to take some time to remind everyone of the rules we have in place, and also give an update on how we are going to tackle avoiding spoilers. We want to give everyone a chance to enjoy the new movie and obviously, we can’t (and don't want to) keep this up forever, and know that most of us are looking forward to seeing the film shortly after it’s released.

    With this in mind moderation of spoilers will be active for 15 days following release (9th-24th December). After this, it's down to members to accept the risks of being in the Cantina or just see the movie before you come here again. ;)

    GUIDELINES FOR POSTING DURING THE SPOILER PERIOD

    PROFILE POSTS
    • Please refrain from posting any spoilers, quotes, dialogue, scene descriptions etc. in Profile Posts - remember these posts are fully visible to members as soon as the log in, so even the spoiler conscious would not be able to avoid them!
    THREADS & THREAD POSTS
    GUIDELINES FOR READING

    MIND THE SPOILER PREFIX
    • Any thread with RED "spoiler" prefix is going to be packed full of.. wait for it… spoilers.
      • Don’t go there if you want to remain in the dark or haven’t seen it yet.
    • If you follow the "Recent Activity" page, understand that you may see spoilers in that feed.
    MODERATING PROFILE POSTS and GENERAL DISCUSSION

    Some threads are going to be a bit of general discussion mixed in with spoilers (hopefully within spoiler tags!
    Understand that all TLJ-specific threads may be “enter at your own risk” zones to some degree).
    • Any spoilers, lines of dialogue, or just about anything pertaining to the film WILL BE DELETED on sight if found on profile posts or discussion threads that do not have have the RED "spoiler" prefix.
    • If you see any posts that break these rules:
      • hit the report button and a Staff member will see to it.
      • PM any Staff or 1030th members who are online if you see a rule-breaking post and we will get right to it.
    Overall, please just be respectful of you fellow Cantina patrons so that we can all enjoy the latest instalment from a galaxy far, far away in as spoiler free a manner as possible.

    Feel free to ask any questions if you have any!

    @Stormagadon I'm planning to release a reaction video on my profile posts on my TLJ viewing, I swear I won't release any spoilers in it, just what I thought if it, is this allowed?

    Are vengeful private messages to people like @SlugmanAttacks with spoilers fair game?

    Perfectly fine. We're not keeping anyone from posting spoilers at all, but when you do, use the tags. Everything here is set up for make sure no one gets spoiled before they're ready. :)

    I'm sorry, I'm a little confused by your comment. Can I rephrase anything that was said?

    Also, @Grand Master Galen Marek, based off the way the rules are set up now, a reaction video is allowed, but make sure that it's posted in the correct place. And if it includes spoilers, make sure you remind people of that before they watch it. :)

    Theorethical question.

    Its about threads that are about some particular theories about characters or events in the TLJ..

    If a theory supported by one thread became proven in the film, than even a single word in that thread, a word of confirmation by people who sough the film instantenously turns such entire thread in to a spoiler . What happens than?.

    Example- Thread: Is Luke Rey's father? And someone emedietely after the film writes ...bingo... it turn this thread in to a spoiler as big as battleship Raddus..what happens than to this thread ?

    Good question I will get back to you with a answer shortly.

    Right then anything that could revel the outcome of a speculative thread must be put behind a spoiler tag as the thread is not a spoiler we may get a new member who hasn't seen the film yet but wants to get involved in the speculation.

    can i post any clearly fake Star Wars spoilers?

    i posted this gem on facebook the day after Force Awakens came out:

    "ok, so Star Wars was pretty awesome! Chewie's wife and kid were stupidly adorable, and i really like how Jabba the Hutt's daughter was a Jedi in this one. aside from that, the whole Jedi academy scene kinda sucked and i really wish they had less ghost Yoda and Alec Guinness/not Alec Guinness (who was that guy??). also, when Leia died, i... didn't really care."

    definitely planning a similar "spoiler" for facebook after TLJ (emperor)

    So long as it's in a place and manner that anyone can realize it's a fake review.
    Obviously a joke like works best when the reader is under the impression that it's true, so I trust that your skills on playing with humor like that will come off effectively. :)

    Ah, gotcha! Well, as long as you understand the rules here and what we're doing for a short time, we're all good. :)
