Been a long time since we've had to worry about this one, so let's establish some ground rules.
First, let's keep all discussion of the film confined to the section I've created for it. For now, I'm even including publicity stills and production shots in that category. That way, those of us who've seen it can share our impressions, speculation, and reactions, and those who haven't seen the film yet and want to keep spoiler-free can simply avoid them by not going in there.
Second, this goes for any fic the new film has inspired. I've created section just for that, too.
Third, if you're trying to remain spoiler-free, just avoid the TFA sections all together. Don't even click on them to look at thread titles. Seriously - it's a bad idea. I can envision a situation in which a thread title will have to give something away in order to attract the people who want to discuss that detail. Just don't do it - and don't hold anyone responsible if you see something you'd rather not.
Now, after a while, some of those threads are going to be moved to other sections of the board for continuity's sake - like answers to challenges and prompts, etc. That way we don't have things all over the place. I'm figuring that by the end of January, everyone will have had an opportunity to see the film and/or read the novelization (due to be released January 5!) and will know what happened.
Send any questions or comments my way or feel free to post them here.
