Re: CHAT ROOM!

The Boss needs to be consulted as to whether the Chatroom needs a spoiler warning. However until there is such a warning perhaps it would be best all round to avoid spoilers in the Chatroom. The basic rule would be no spoilers unless flagged up clearly beforehand so that those who wish to avoid them can do so.

I don't think it is reasonable to have the Chatroom out-of-bounds to all those who wish to avoid spoilers, whereas those who know the 'stuff' anyway would not be so precluded from using the Chatroom.

It is, is suppose, quite easy to accidentally post a spoiler but restraint needs to be exercised. Once posted and read a spoiler cannot be erased. Internet etiquette needs to be borne in mind.

Perhaps two chat rooms are feasible. The Boss would be the person to approach with such a suggestion.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

What about when series 3 airs and we wish to talk as it is being shown? The chat room would be the best place because it's so quick.

Dean - "I'm not happy about it. But I got to move on. So I'm gonna keep doing what we do...while I still can. And I'd like you to be there with me."

Sam - "I'm your brother, Dean, if you ever need to talk about anything with anybody, you got someone right here next to you."

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I think this would be possible if there is a warning for all who cannot see it at the time.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

You guys really want to chat about it while you are watching it for the first time...? Wow, that's definitely not for me... makes it a bit difficult to not just see, but to also observe, I think. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Yeah, well, me too. But in this case... no. This is just too special, I wouldn't wanna get distracted for just a second. But I'm sure you'll have lots of fun, chatting away. It's just not my cup of tea. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Having the opportunity to talk about it here immediately afterwards will be great, though. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Most of the time, there are 2-3 people at most in the chat, and honestly, while I understand and appreciate the want to be unspoiled, I think that spoilers are what many people want to talk about, because, honestly...almost everything has been said that can be said about a show that hasn't been on tv in over 1 1/2 years.  If you say no spoilers at all, I think that limits what people can talk about...and aren't we all adults here?  I think everyone in the chat has been very courteous and stops talking about spoilers when someone else comes in who doesn't want to talk about it.  I think that the chat subject should be left up to the people talking there at that time, with everyone free to use their own discretion without insulting others in the chat.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

I completely agree with what sj4iy said. I'm more or less unspoiled, but I'm still not in favor of a strict absolutely-no-spoilers-in-the-chat-rule. I think, or I hope, that we should have a nice, considerate atmosphere in the chat with give and take from both 'sides'.

So if people in the chat want to talk about some exciting new spoiler or whatever, I'd be the first person to offer to leave and let them discuss. Just, and that's the important part for me: Let me know! Give me a warning beforehand so that I can leave, or close my eyes, or whatever, and all is well

I hope we can find a compromise that suits everybody.

I totally agree.
I can do "multitask" when it airs the second or third time - but the first time: no way! Leave me alone, I want to ENJOY and not miss a SECOND!

Re: CHAT ROOM!

If people want to talk literally as the episodes are airing then Twitter is the ideal forum. If spoilers are to be discussed in the Chatroom then they really, really need to be flagged up in advance and never just lobbed in. If it is only a couple of people wishing to discuss them there is the PM option.

Re: CHAT ROOM!

Oh, and I can say right now with certainty that I won't be in the chat toon until the episode is over.  I can multitask...but I wouldn't want to ;)

What if we're not on Twitter and have no wish to be?
