NEW STORY DISCUSSION FORUM - spoilers go in there now (link inside)!!

Hi all,

I've seen this morning that a new section appeared in this forum, which is designed to be used in order to post the "spoilers" messages.
I think it is a great idea.
But, do you - moderators or "responsibles" for this forum - have planned to move all already existing discussions tagged as "spoilers" from this section of the forum to the new one ?
I think it would make sense then, especially those related to the current new EP (3).

One more comment, I have just found where was located the "Support" section ... I think - but I might be wrong - it is not clear where this part is located.
I found there some posts related to the potential bugs concerning saves (the "hot" topic currently, it seems), and so on, and I would tend to think that all already existing posts about this problems could be moved there, or at least that a "reminder" with the link to the "Support" forum should appear somewhere at the beginning of each sections.

It's just an opinion ...

  • Is there a way to block thread titles on the main page since they can be seen on the way to the general discussion forum? Are we still going to need to label thread titles with [SPOILERS]?

    As things look right now, vbulletin boards don't give many options for that. Something that I hope can be tried - DjNDB's suggestion - is to fake a generation date for one of these threads that is so much in the future that it'll always be the top one.
  • so this is now the talk about anything but the game section?

    Its mechanics, graphics, controls, languages, voice actors, price, release dates, platforms, encountered bugs; the zombie genre, TWD comics and TV series, community activities like Let's Play's, upcoming TWD game events, videos like Playing Dead, fan fiction, fan art, related games.

    That's talk "about the game" that still belongs here (and not exclusively that).
  • This new sub form is pretty lame
  • Why is 90% of the threads and posts still containing spoilers in this forum? Like the stickied review thread. Either remove all Spoilers or none. Now we basically have to go into 2 different forums ... which sucks.
  • I think it's a work in progress - going through every thread, inserting spoiler tags where needed, merging topics and moving others.

    exactly why its a waste of time...
  • People whine about everything around here.. It's crazy.

    Yeah, that's exactly what's going to happen. Seriously.

    That's why instead of a spoiler forum you should make it a spoiler free forum. It's a lot easier to prevent spoilers fresh then moderate a forum that has been spoiled to death already.

    Have you seen the reasons people want a spoiler free forum? So they can complain, or get help/tech support (for which there is already a forum), or check the forums instead of the blogs for release dates (which makes no sense b/c blogs & game websites get the info first) so you can have all that stuff there.

    Basically, yeah, it's pretty obvious the types you're dealing with.

    Make your life as moderators simple. Make this the spoiler forum because it will always have spoilers. Make the other forum spoiler free.

    Be smart about this.
    Their are other topics I have seen in here as well as ones about spoilers and people venting frustrations about late products.

    Granted the ones with Tech problems do have their own forum but the ones looking for a release date have no where else to go if they are from the EU because by the time anyone reported it on a game website like say ING it was probably on here first in the topic about it being late because everyone checks the PSN store as soon as they can. Plus I do not think TTG have actually posted a blog on the release date yet. (I could be wrong)

    Also saying something like "Basically, yeah, it's pretty obvious the types you're dealing with." sounds a bit insulting. Just warning you because you might end up with a bit of rage directed at you. I know if I would rage at you if I was insulted by the comment.

    On top of that looking through the pages it seems like a lot of time and effort but with good mods it should work.
