Hang on, was it outside the HP section or just outside the discussion section?
Outside the HP section. It was over in the movies section and the exact same thread as one in the Previews Section, advertising their story "Wolves without Teeth".

Is this the guy going around asking for feedback for some sociology experiment about fanfiction? I thought I tried giving him a chance to prove that he isn't a spammer. Did he post nothing but the same message everywhere?

People these days ... :no:

We seem to be having a heated argument in the What(anime) are you watching thread from around here (I received a moderation report);

(WARNING: potential spoiler alert!)
http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?pid=1296531#pid1296531

The issue is about spoilers. Some members insist that spoiler tags must be used and that it's against the rules not to use them. Others say there's no such rule.

On a technical matter - we do NOT have any rules about spoiler usage. We do however, have etiquette about them.

But that's not something I want to enforce or bring into the rulebook. At the very least, it will involve defining what exactly is a spoiler - a VERY complicated topic. For example, one site/forum I hang out on defines spoilers as anything not mentioned in episode 1 of a show. If that's the case, how can we have a reasonable discussion about certain shows? For a long running series like Naruto/One Piece, it would mean that you aren't allowed to even mention notable characters who appear much later, but are vital to the show. Are we supposed to make exceptions for long running shows? What about a franchise like Batman? Which universe should we define as use-spoilers-beyond-this-point? The original episode 1 that was published years ago?

-sigh-

Sorry for the rant - it's a complicated subject. Short version, as a mod, I don't want to enforce folks to use spoilers - it's something that should be self-imposed. We can ASK others to edit their posts (or us mods can do that on a case-by-case basis), and that's about it.

My official reply on the thread is this;
http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=69&pid=1296649#pid1296649

If any more spoiler discussions come up in the thread over the next few days, I'll probably jump in and edit it out as a matter of being too off-topic. On the issue of enforceability of spoilers, I'm keeping the door open to anyone interested to make a dedicated thread about it - but I'm not initiating it.

On November 19, I banned Schema for making threats to mess with the forum domain over a couple of banners. I come and go, because I work some 60-odd hours a week (and have been for the last six months!) so I don't have time to read much. I DO however check PMs and moderation reports, and if anyone, ANYONE had a problem they should've just PM'd me about the banners and I would've dealt with them. Which I did.

Schema will be unbanned, so this can be talked out with some civility.

I'm doing story cleanups for daniel_gudman's story "FSN + SAO" here,

http://thefanfictionforum.net/showthread.php?tid=19381

By cleanups, I mean text encoding fixes which happened due to the forum migration. It's going to be tedious to mention this for each and every post, so this report is going to serve notice for that entire thread.

I've already got the author's permission to go ahead. :)

Just came across what looked like some kind of advertisement for an essay writing service. Deleted the thread. Am ignoring the user for now, in case I acted a bit too hastily.
