Seconding this sentiment. It seems to be becoming more of a problem.

I was expecting the opposite.

And doesn't Fate have a VN discussion anyways?

The essential problem of relying on enforcement that even if you were willing to piss people off by reporting them for minor spoilers, YOU HAVE TO ALREADY BE SPOILED TO REPORT IT .


I don't want to get people suspended or warned after the fact, I don't want to read the spoiler in the first place!


Edit for a PSA :AK is trolling like he usually does, I wouldn't expect much from engaging with him.

That is my biggest fear lol

I've been spoiled on a few series, but nothing recently. However, i've made it a point to not peruse discussion threads for shows that have manga or light novel adaptations.

I can think of one example from the current season, actually. I haven't been spoiled, but the possibility of spoilers is so frightening that i'm just going to stay out of the thread completely lol.

But generally - I agree. Anime threads should be for anime spoilers. But I can understand that, in some cases, perhaps it's just really hard to keep a secret or something.

Fair enough.

But yeah.. It doesn't help with engagement with threads since i tend to quickly end up avoiding. Plus the LN/Manga talk has a very fun tendency of derailing the thread completely.

Fate threads are the equivalent of a Political threads. You have arguments with extremely long essays as if it was a book or a testament.

I'm impressed on how these people can create a valid argument in a few seconds. They're like politicians debating on a certain issue.

I agree completely. People forget what the purpose of an ANIME discussion thread is for and end up posting spoilers from the original source that has yet to appear in the anime.

If people don't report the ones doing the spoilers, because those reporting will be spoiled, you are now in a conundrum of there never being an end to Spoilers. :/

There's also the problem of there is hardly anyone to talk to in the LN subforums

Very, very few people go to the "Books & Comics" section, making any sort of discussion impractical.
LN talk is also difficult to come about in the "Manga" section, thus making the best place to talk about a certain LN series is on its anime discussion page. Of course, with spoiler tags because that is what they are for.

naaw LN talks belong with LNs, keep that shit over there. then again i remeber this being a problem a few years ago, glad nothings changed

One of the reasons you don't see me in show forums often anymore. One of them...

People don't care to use spoiler tags...

If you tell one, you have to tell them all...

Reporting does nothing...

Tragic.

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.


If you don't want spoilers, just never click a spoiler tag. Problem solved.

So the answer is to make the thread unusable for others? Even leaving aside that people don't tag spoilers, it's super divisive to the discussion.

People in the Anime thread don't care about how the same or different the adaptaion is.. They just want to enjoy the adaptation!

Except people spoil without tags

or people don't mention what a tag is about, there are different level of spoilers.

or more basically (as mentioned right above) you get pages of chatter that are totally offtopic to non-LN readers

LNs and Manga have their own section. People should use it.

I automatically assume that whatever is in a spoiler tag contains knowledge that I am unaware of. Because normally when an episode is released, you have people talking about the content of that episode freely without spoiler tags. So I have no idea why anyone would spoiler tag what they are saying about the current episode, when others aren't. It's a discussion of the most recent episode. You should think to yourself "Well there are probably people who are discussing the most recent episode. I should either A) watch the most recent episode or avoid the forum until I watch the most recent episode."

It's kind of like the comments section of the video. "Well I haven't watched this episode yet, might as well go see what is in the comments section that has nothing to do with this episode, even though it is the comments section for this episode. GASP! They are talking about this episode, blasphemy!"

It's like you have to make everything idiot proof these days.
