    Default Avoiding spoilers

    Please can posters we wary of what you write in the first couple of lines of the the GOT thread as it may contain spoilers. When viewing the latest threads it shows the first couple of lines of the latest post in each thread. I hope that makes sense!!

    Yeah I noticed that in another thread. I think you just have to






    Do a bit of this so it won't show when people are scrolling through latest threads on their phone

    Are you talking about people posting as their watching live tv (in the case of Masterchef, Offspring etc) or people posting about episodes that haven't been screened in Australia yet?

    I think she's talking about the discussion threads on bubhub about those shows.

    But if people are posting about Masterchef whilst watching it on tv, then I don't think it needs to be a spoiler thread. It's not those people's fault that you're unable to watch it live. All you've gotta do is log onto facebook and see the twenty thousand screenshots that Channel 10 makes during Offspring and Puberty Blues and it's spoiled anyway.

    But if people are posting about episodes of shows that haven't been screened on Australian tv yet (Grey's Anatomy is one that comes to mind), then yes they should be spoiler posts.

    All the more reason not to watch the stupid shows in the first place

    I've never watched any of the shows mentioned in this thread.

    She's not asking for a spoiler thread, she's just asking to be mindful.

    I disagree. We have different time zones in Australia for a start. It's not really about 'fault' - just sometimes people can't watch it at the time for whatever reason.

    It happens from time to time - I get it. It's just nice for people to be a little mindful. I try and avoid those threads until I've managed to catch up but sometimes get caught out. And it's just a little quirk with the way these forum threads appear.

    I totally agree with you about shows that haven't been screened on free to air though.
