About 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Spoilers: How to behave when the movie is out. THIS MEANS YOU!!!

It’s unfortunate we have to do this again, as people were pretty good about this with The Force Awakens, Rogue One & The Last Jedi, but we guess we have to spell it out:

NO SPOILERS OUTSIDE THE SOLO SPOILERS THREAD, THE SOLO FAN EDIT IDEAS THREAD, & THE SOLO REVIEW/OPINION THREAD!
 

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be here soon. It will probably bring in a lot of new folks. It will probably bring back some old faces as well.

Therefore, we are asking you to be on your very best behavior. Check your egos at the door, and keep it civil around here. Do not take troll bait, no matter how tempting it may be. (It’s fattening anyway.)

Bad behavior of any sort will not be tolerated. No warnings will be given post movie premiere, and the ban hammer will be used without hesitation.
 

Our current spoiler policy will remain in place until at least a few weeks after the movie is out:-

So don’t be a Homer Simpson!

Please refrain linking to The Last Jedi clips of any camcorder theater bootlegs or anything else legally suspect you may come across. We really don’t know what the new Mouse Overlords might do, and we’d rather not find out. And if you see anyone posting such links, report it to the mods immediately. And don’t click on any such links, as they could be dangerous to your computer. Thanks!

Is there a set date that the spoiler embargo ends on?

With TFA we lifted the policy about a month after the movie release date. Sounds about right this time. There will be an announcement when it happens.

I hope that those that don’t want the slightest spoiler didn’t look at the movie poster! (lol)

If I didn’t want any spoiler I wouldn’t read a Star Wars forum in the first place…

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

The idea is to be considerate of others who haven’t seen the movie yet. I probably won’t even be able to see it until next week, and being on staff here makes avoiding spoilers even harder. Some idiot in a chat room that had nothing to do with Star Wars spoiled a major TFA plot point for me less than 24 hours before I saw it last year.

You are not going to be winning any friends around here with that attitude.

Help back SPACE COMMAND!

Just saw it last weekend and dying to talk with people about it, is the spoiler policy still in effect? I’ll keep my RO chats in the spoiler threads until I hear otherwise, but thought I would ask first.

I somehow managed to get all the way to New Years Eve without a single spoiler. Never have some many people extended such courtesy. As midnight struck I was in the theater getting my mind blown. Happy 2017!

This isn’t a discussion thread for the movie.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?

Just a notice that the spoiler policy on TLJ will be lifted on Feb. 15th at 12:00 AM Pacific time. If you haven’t seen the movie by then…

Spoiler policy on the Han Solo movie remains in place of course.
