TWD SPOILERS


Teeceezy said:
The following topics are strictly off limits, including in external links:
  1. Cheating, hacking, game exploits. Talking or discussing cheating, hacking or game exploits. This also includes discussion on how to play NML on unsupported services or devices. (e.g. BlueStacks)
  2. Porn, anything unsafe for work, gore, copyrighted material. 
  3. Pirated software and media of any kind. 
  4. Threats of violence or harassment, even in jest
  5. Posting copyrighted material such as magazine scans
  6. Soliciting, begging, auctioning, selling, advertising, referrals
  7. Racism, discrimination
  8. NO SPOILERS. Seriously, don't spoil the show. Don't be that person, it's not cool. 


@zbot I think it's past time to address this.

This is a WALKING DEAD message board and I think it's beyond stupid for people to get repeatedly FLAMED, TROLLED, and publicly HUMILIATED and DISRESPECTED for taking about ANYTHING to do with THE WALKING DEAD TV series.

I propose to address #8 in Teeceezy original post.

#1) Define what is a spoiler

#2) Set a timeline for how long something is a spoiler

Good folks here should be allowed to openly communicate about the TV series that the game is based on.

I suggest the topic/content of a recently aired show remain a "spoiler" / off-limits for a period of +1 week after the original air date.

After that, if you haven't seen it yet, it's your own fault and the rest of the community shouldn't be punished because you're too cheap to pay for it.

    Sorry but the thread title was 'Vote for your favourite heroes for season 11a'
    If you looked at the thread after seeing that then you have no complaint about spoilers.

    Even if you are "that person" it still doesn't warrant for others to repeatedly call you a "fucktard", "dumbass", tell you to shut up and make up wild accusations about your intent or otherwise humiliate or reduce you as a person. If you think it does you should read Atlas second post again.

    You should assume people don't have malicious intent, unless they clearly keep proving you otherwise. The person who posted the possible spoiler hasn't demonstrated having malicious intent. At most I would say being careless and stupid in the past, which should be ok (everyone makes mistakes). The person who responded to it on the other hand has demonstrated malicious intent repeatedly, by slandering people he dislikes, mass-downvoting their posts (even if they're unrelated to any previous disagreement) and taking any opportunity to jump the gun. The possible minor spoiler was just fuel for his fire, that he was likely happy to get. I'm happy to provide links to back this up, but zbot, Fluxxx and everyone else at this point should already know who and what I'm talking about.

    If you're not going to protect us against people like that we have to do it ourselves, which leads to more flaming. Banning that person is way overdue. Then we can talk about spoilers.

    I’m aware of who you are talking about @Paste and in the same breath can adamantly say whatever, Kettle. “He’s a toxic psycho posting lies and randomly attacking people” just because it’s not profanity filled doesn’t make it justified. If you’re pushed and baited for a reaction you’re probably going to get one. I’ve been called many names on this forum and (extremely rarely) I do actually get angry but just because I can brush my shoulders off doesn’t mean others will have that reaction. Asking for a ban is lame and completely ridiculous and obviously wouldn’t solve shit. Ima say it again “don’t be that person “ if you’re adhering to the rules and not that person then there is NO smoke. You can protect yourself by following some simple rules and letting shit go.

    I like you @Jenng, but you need to get your facts straight. He attacked me twice unprovoked and I brushed it off and let it go. Then he did it again much later and proved that he's keeping me on some personal shitlist, so no I'm not going to be taking it silently. Someone needs to stand up to that bully, and this isn't "bating for a reaction".

    Here's the second and third times. How did I cause this? I didn't see his follow up until way after I edited my post the second time. Additionally the post has the same sentiment as before. I clearly did not "edit my post and put completely different information in there". If I did, how come his later post still proves mine wrong?

    Here he attacked another member:

    Also, I never said my own posts weren't subject to moderation. They definitely are. I would be happy to comply with stricter moderation, which shows that the mods actually enforce the rules.

    @SCBMA after you attacked me three times unprovoked I had to answer. I only removed my footer now because I wanted to keep the level somewhat constructive in this thread. I'm not innocent and I never claimed innocence. This includes the first time you called me a kettle. I just wanted that thread locked so we could stop wasting time on it.

    Also, the words "continuously" and "several" doesn't mean twice. If something happens twice and you're describing them as "continuously" and "several" this is a dead giveaway that you're an untrustworthy person.

    For transparency: I just caught myself using the word "several" myself, meaning 3 times. While I think this is fair, I edited it.

    Thing is the person in question has great ideas and most of the time enjoy their posts. However I have indeed fallen foul of their spoilers before, luckily I could see one coming this time and didn’t read the thread. (Although the unread notification is really starting to annoy me). They knew what they are doing, don’t they? Also not cool with the above spoiler if people aren’t up to date with the current season.

    @vshield50 You have left an impression on me as an intellectually honest person, and you've been here longer than me and have seen more threads, so I believe you know what you're talking about. I could possibly be wrong about the poll that started this. However I still think the author of that poll had no malicious intent. I have noticed that he is impassioned about the shows characters and in particular how to bring them to the game. You can tell from his posts that he's putting a lot of time on this, thinking about appropriate classes and leader traits. This is what bridges the two different worlds (the show and the game) that you want to keep separate, so I don't think your argument applies to him.
    Obviously he's also the sort of person that likes to know details ahead of times. I recall some other fairly recent thread where someone posted a major spoiler, but not the details of it. My analysis of the situation remains the same, but since I don't recall all the details I could be wrong.

    I've definitely been flexing my e-muscles. Worse words can be used to describe my behavior.

    As mentioned though, this was after letting SCBMA attacking my person twice, mass-downvoting my comments and waiting it out hoping it would pass (I thought it had), until he attacked me again a third time unprovoked. I still don't know what his issue is since he never tried to argue against any of my points. Just character assassination and mass downvoting.

    Sometimes you can end up in a similar situation after trying to argue friendly first. This however isn't the case for SCBMA. He starts his conversations like this. This is not something I can tolerate, but I'll try to stay on the constructive side now.

    Seems to be too hard to choose the right sub-category. One might not get that much attention. :)

    good questions, I’ll address the timeline first, other than US the episodes are available later in other countries, I recall when this question came up that some countries the show can be a year behind.  So there’s no firm date rule.

    As for what defines a spoiler is also debatable, I recall players had issues with season missions being a spoiler and wouldn’t play it until they watched the episode.

    As for the rules on flaming, I’m very familiar with it as I was the one who helped draft it.  

    Before anyone starts pointing fingers at others, please do some self reflections.  For example, anytime someone asks for more heroes the “consensus” from the forum “OG” are talks of token dilution, we don’t need more heroes, just use XYZ you don’t need anyone else.  Some people like the game for the TV show characters, others like min/ max and rules lawyering to take advantage of every situation. Everyone has a different viewpoint, learn to respect it.  Personally I play the game the way I want to, which is to have fun.

    The forum that was envisioned was supposed to be a place where everyone has a voice.  In order for meaningful dialogue to happen, the rules of the forum for proper conduct must be followed if not the forum becomes chaotic and the message gets lost and NG staff and mods spend time fixing the forum instead of continuing the dialogue.  The only way to change this behavior is for everyone to do their part and be respectful to each other.

    I don’t think posting a trailer is a spoiler. It’s on TV so using your logic you don’t watch tv ever @SCBMA

    You constantly attack and burn people on forums then sit here and cry wolf? It’s amazing! 
    Wish we had a block feature I’m sure most would have you on it!

    @zbot @vshield50

    I still find it ridiculous the idea of waiting 1-YEAR to talk about something.

    Just think about that for a minute.

    Think about something cool that happens to you today but you HAVE TO WAIT ONE YEAR TO TALK ABOUT IT???

    (Edit sorry, sir this isn't true, you don't have to wait, you can go into this special empty sound proof room and talk to the ficus in the corner)

    that's 12° beyond stupid.

     I don't care what's available when or who waits for stuff to become available on streaming that's their choice. There are ways to watch the show and if there aren't man buck up and just deal with the fact that you get spoiled. The idea that everyone else has to suffer because of the few the choose to wait is stupid.

    That said...

    If @Timyun has crossed the line and it sounds like maybe he has then shame on him. But I think the bigger crime by far is @SCBMA just being his usual super fun self.

    Oh and for those that don't know, because I've found out that there are some...

    Episodes of The walking Dead are available on Amazon for watching the day after they air.

    Yes you will have to pay for them and support the show. 

    This is how I watch the show for anyone that's curious. I don't have cable television or satellite I stream on Netflix, Amazon Prime and a few others.
