Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just hours away from premiering, and I know people here on the site are going to want to talk about the movie after they've seen it. For that purpose, there's a thread up (linked here), for all discussion of the movie. Any discussion regarding spoilers of any kind need to stay in that thread until AT LEAST the new year (the admins are still discussing when exactly we'll end the moratorium on spoilers). Even if you have a new theory that is sparked by the movie, if you need to reference something in the movie, please hold off on posting the theory as its own thread until this spoiler-free period is up.
As this movie is one of the most anticipated films of the last few years, we're going to be VERY quick to respond to spoilers posted outside of this thread. Our basic plan is that on a first offense, if we determine that you're posting details (real or not) to troll, flame, or ruin the movie for other members, you're going to be banned until at least the new year, and possibly until the end of the spoiler period. If we conclude that it was an innocent slip, your post will be edited or removed, and you'll receive a PM letting you know that we've done so, and letting you know that you need to not do so again. I know that this policy is harsh, but I've seen many other places on the internet where trolls are posting spoilers abound, and I'm not going to have that happening here.
If you see any spoilers, please remember that the report button is your friend, and we'll get on it as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, as always, feel free to leave them here in the thread, or drop me a PM.
