Parent Page: HEROsector01:Policy
This policy will explain how spoilers will work, and what is considered a spoiler. Spoilers are information about a recently released storyline or set source, that not everybody may have access to right away.
Spoilers in General
Spoilers on this wiki are placed within coding known as the "Clickspoiler" notified with the coding
<spoiler>THESPOILER</spoiler> seen directly below.
<spoiler>Von Ness IS Von Nebula!</spoiler>
Remember to close the spoiler tag.
Spoilers For Newly Released Information
As a general rule, do not post spoilers about new episodes, comics, or sets until the staff say it is all clear to do so. HS01 has specific policies for such things (see the three policies below) but sometimes amendments may be made to fit the circumstances at hand. If a spoiler posted violates the spoiler policy, please remove it until the go-ahead signal is given.
A countdown is usually placed on the front page and in the editing area to alert editors of which spoilers are prohibited and/or when they can be added/removed.
Spoilers Policy for Television Episodes
After the first U.S. airing of a television show episode, spoilers may not be added for one (1) week. Afterwards, spoilers must be placed in the spoiler template for an additional week.
Spoiler Policy for Comics
Once a comic has been sighted, spoilers will be allowed one (1) week from the date. After the spoilers are allowed, they must be kept tagged with a spoiler template for one week.
Spoiler Policy for Sets
Any information and images which are not officially released by LEGO (i.e on an online store instead of an official conference or press release) is strictly prohibited. The staff will notify the general public of dates for the posting of spoilers which comes from official sources.
It must be emphasized once more that leaked images are strictly prohibited, as it ruins the suspense LEGO wants to create, and it's an anti-climatic for the general audience. Posting leaked pictures hampers our positive ties with LEGO. If any leaked pictures are sighted, please do not upload them or the offenders will be punished. Remember, leaked pictures have no expiration date; even if similar legal images are released, any pictures previously leaked are NOT allowed.
If you spot leaked images on this Wiki, please report them immediately to the Staff
