Guide to Reviews

IF you are going to post a review, please do not reveal spoilers, (I.e. crucial plot developments, or ideas that one would not know if they haven't seen the most recent episodes)


Why? you ask, when you post a review, it goes to the front page of the show's page, near the top, if one wants to watch the episode, they must scroll down over your review, and see the spoiler...


If you really feel you must post a spoiler, put that information in the title, and don't reveal the spoiler until the ver end of the post where it won't be seen by anyone unless the open the review to read it.


A better idea though just don't post it at all.

If you don't want to read spoilers then don't read them. It's all a matter of will power, and it doesn't matter how many times you post about not posting reviews with spoilers, in the end if you read it it's your problem. It's not that hard to scroll down to the episodes without reading, in fact it's very easy.

It's not a matter of "will power" when you scroll down and you read "I can't believe they killed the grandmother" in caps and such. I don't read the reviews until after I watch the eps. however, some people don't seem to understand that CAPS GETS ATTENTION. as such, spoilers written in such a manner ARE NOT AVOIDABLE.

I believe you all take things like this way to seriously, attacking people when they post things, leaving nasty comments. Get over it, it doesn't mater how angry you may get, in fact people might do it just to piss you off. It is a matter of will power, you know someone new to this sight may post a review/spoiler in these places, instead of in the discussions, it's your job to make yourselves aware of things like that and avoid it. It doesn't matter what font someone posts something in, you know it's possible, and ranting and getting pissed off isn't going to help your cause. I see some of the comments left on reviews/spoilers it's disgusting how angry people get, when it's clearly their choice to read it. No matter if it's in caps or not, you all know it could be there, if it bugs you so much you'd make yourselves aware and avoiding reading attention getters.

Mikey I do read some of the reviews before i read the episode, they shouldn't have spoilers in them, that type of thing should be in the discussions area (below the video links), Personally I had already watched the episode, but even had I not, i wouldn't have been able to miss it, the particular spoiler this is in response to did not say "SPOILER ALERT OMG" it just said "OMG THIS HAPPENS IN EPISODE 6"(Replace THIS with the spoiler) *shrugs* that and I tend to be able to read things even when i'm just scrolling, (being in college encourages the ability to skim)

Mikey... where were any nasty comments, just out of curiosoty... I didn't see any... if there are any i will post them as innapropriate...
I know it's possible to post a review/spoiler in these places, which is why i posted this originally... To say, hey this is not a good place to put spoilers.
This is not the post you should be getting disgusted at.

I never said those comments were in this post. Show me where I said that, I'd like to know in case I wrote it wrong.

It's pretty sad that there are so many stupid people out there that you have to post something like this to explain what a review is.
