I just made the mistake of going into the GATE thread to talk about it, and it's defintiely a death by a thousand cuts feeling.

There were 4 or 5 small spoilers (and 1 bigger one) within a single page.

There's manga and books forums, please, I'm begging you, use them instead!


Note from a mod: I agree! If there are lengthy discussions of the LN or manga, then please start a new thread for that. Don't have that conversation in the anime thread. A small amount of talk about the manga or LN is okay, but when doing so, please use spoiler tags, and mark them as being about the LN or manga.

This is covered by the Site Rules/Forum guidelines. See the last section under Forum Guidelines, where it says:


Use spoiler tags when posting about significant events in shows, manga, etc., or when revealing something from a related source. . A little extra conversation in threads can be nice but be careful not to go so far off topic as to derail the discussion.

Please use the "Report to Moderator" link to report problems with users derailing and spoiling threads with LN/manga discussion. There are few mods (all of us are part-time volunteers) and lots of threads. We aren't able to closely monitor every single one of them, so we do often rely on all users to bring things like this to our attention.

There does seem to be a heavy tendency towards a lot of threads getting derailed like that. And it does make it difficult for people who aren't reading and such to not get spoiled since spoiler tags don't really get utilized.

Though it would require more moderator effort to police.

You are suggesting that 30 moderators are not enough?

I never mentioned more moderators were required, just that it would require more effort from them. And of course the question is if it is something they care to enforce..

The thing with spoiler tags is that It should be for the current episode not about the LN or Manga it is based on. So we never know what's actually inside until we click it.

Definitely all the other threads pale in comparison to the Fate / Stay Night threads. I think some LN / VN / Manga hints are unavoidable but it's up to the user to stay out of those threads if they don't want spoilers. I've stayed away from the GATE thread for this reason.

No... I am, however, insinuating there are 29 moderators who seemly do nothing about this sort of thing.

Which is why people can just preface it with, "In the LN/manga.. etc. etc." [insert spoiler tag].

Right.. well, that's on Crunchyroll's moderation team to enforce these rules. Over at Reddit.com/r/Anime, crap like getting spoiled rarely happens because you'll be banned immediately for doing so. It's also just common sense.. but I suppose there are a lot of younger kids who flock here that don't understand that concept.

That's an interesting and possibly very fair point..
