I always think towards the end of a series it seems mildly ridiculous to keep putting things is spoiler tags - if you haven't watched the series thus far then why come and look at the discussion thread?? Surely there will inevitably be some piece of information you didn't know. Also, by that point, everything is pretty much a spoiler, so you end up with posts that have got spoilers inside spoilers.

As hpulley says there's really no point looking down and reading the comments below individual videos before you've watched them as obviously what they will be discussing is that video's content! So again, is seems somewhat counterintuitive to keep posting things in spoiler tags when, it can be fairly presumed, everybody's there to discuss that episode after having seen it.

But one of the problems (in regards to video comments) is sometimes people post things from future eps (or spoilers from the manga/visual novel/videogame)? And so, the question is, how can we prevent this from happening in the first place since unfortunately, it does happen. I'm still not confident too that people know what constitutes a spoiler , that's why I'd love to see some kind of link (that would open up a dialog box or something) maybe above the "Add Comment" button that details more of what a spoiler actually is.

Not having comments right on the videos is the only way to prevent spoilers entirely... Or you make comments spoilers by default and force people to un-spoiler them...

Perhaps a suggestion is to have an account setting for "show/don't show video comments"? Again perhaps some of this stuff should go in the suggestion thread on the help forum instead of here.

Yes, to be honest until I'd read this thread I hadn't even realised that there wasn't the same spoiler tag feature for video comments as with the forum...it's a difficult one, on other forums I've used there's been a distinct: 'don't post info from the manga in the anime threads' rule, with the assumption that everybody's up to speed on the videos. To be honest if people are too lazy to use the spoiler button, I don't think we'll convince them to use multiple buttons.

Also gomen suikojay as I'm probably one of the spoilers on the Amnesia thread . I have to say I do post stuff up when I think it's an answer to a question others have been asking too...I hope I at least used spoiler tags!

Yeah, thx hpulley-san! I'll add those suggestions to the post I already made in the Suggestions thread; there's already 8 suggestions already!

Don't worry, I don't recall any major spoilers coming from any of your video comments.

And also, thankfully not everyone is lazy so there are some people that actually do use the spoiler tag button though (in regards to video comments), I know I do a lot, and for those that do, it would be nice if we could be more specific about what kind of spoiler it is.

Yes, this pisses me off to no end. I have even called people out for it when I notice it.

Would be nice if there was a "previous text hidden to conserve space" tag and a "picture hidden to save space" tag, a "this week's episode spoiler" tag, a "manga/novel spoiler" tag, etc. but for now all we can do is precede spoiler tags with text like "MAJOR MANGA SPOILERS AHEAD DON'T READ UNLESS YOU REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT TO KNOW".


Yes!! It would be great if someone made this happen. Especially the Manga part...

Never really cared about what other people say about an episode I am watching/ finished watching.
I usually discuss the episode in this subforum.

Being able to tag a spoiler with whatever relevant text you want should be implemented. Though people could troll and tag something Picture and have it be real spoilers. It's hard to stop everything like that but being able to take a spoiler with whatever text you want isn't a lot to ask.

I'm confused about this thread. Is it complaining about discussion of a current episode that officially aired on CR on the forums? or on the video feed itself? I know when I talk about current episodes I do not use spoilers. I don't read manga so it's not like I'm injecting information that was not in the current episode. So that's my confusion.. so what people are suggesting here is to use spoiler tags in a discussion thread about the current episode? They want an entire thread with tags? wtf is the point of the thread? If it's about the video feed then I agree that's a pain. Problem is that I watch the feed and ignore all comments. Heck.. half the time I see them on my PS3 so no comments are shown regardless.

They're talking about the comments on the video page I think

And the best way to avoid spoilers there is just to avoid the comments section
The forum discussion is the better place to talk about the show anyway, the comments section should only be for reaction to the episode type comments

I think someone on this forum is the reason why Code Geass got spoiled for me.
Though I don't care.

It's true that few people like to show off by spoiling future info, but don't lump spoilers with reactions of current video. It is pissed me off when people stupidly read the comments before watching the video then accused others' reactions as spoilers.

Also there was a very similar thread to this up last week about spoilers in reviews, which I think is probably even worse, since people who are off reading a review haven't made the decision to watch the show yet - I can see how spoilers there would have one effing and blinding.

It seems like calling people out on things is probably the most important factor - if people don't know they're spoiling someone else's enjoyment of a show then they don't know what they need to change.

This! Why do I have to worry about someone else s ignorance if you don't want the episode to be spoiled don't read the comments before you watch simple as that. As for people who click the spoiler buttons expecting a code or something else that's like telling someone don't touch it, it's hot and they touch it get burned and then complain about the person who warned them. For the one's that spoil it by pasting arcs from the manga/game/light novel just report those and they get taken down. Honestly I don't care either way, spoiler tags no spoiler tags, I don't bother with the comment section till I watched the episode anyway and most of the time the show I am watching I already know the story line.
