Seeing as we've got a lot of new members, I thought I might post some info that new (and existing!) members might find useful. Not that anyone's been bad! On the contrary the board has been really clean and enjoyable to post in and we want to keep it that way!

Could people just
BUMP
this for a while to keep it on (or near) the front page? Thanks!

Let me add this important information about SPOILERS.



POLICY RE: SPOILERS

A spoiler is something that reveals information about a plot twist or the location of some object/character/hidden place. Spoilers are by their nature subjective - you will need to use your judgment to determine what these are.

A lot of people get on these boards to talk about general game issues, such as "What is the best party for whatever" or "Should I drop whoever from my group?". These types of posts usually don't require spoilers as they are general information.

Other people might have specific game questions like "How do i get past so-and-so" or "Where is such-and-such". These would be considered posts requesting spoiler information. Some are obviously bigger spoilers than others.

There are also posts which refer to specific plot twists in BG2. A lot of people who come here do NOT know about certain plot twists which the rest of us might take for granted. Unmarked spoilers about these detract from these people's gaming experience. The majority of people don't like finding out about a plot twist before they were meant to.

As a courtesy to other board members who may not have gotten as far in the game as you have, please abide by the following when requesting or revealing spoiler information:

  • Do NOT reveal the spoiler in your title.
  • Put a SPOILER tag in the title so people know you will be revealing spoiler information.
  • Put spoiler spaces just before the part where you are revealing the information.[/list]
    Click on the below links for examples, kindly provided by Yorick, on how to word posts which have/require spoiler information. Thanks Yorick!

    Example 1
    Example 2

    Let's all help continue to make this the BEST BG2 board on the net!

Hey Mem, is there another colour other than red? It's a little hard the eyes.

OK, I changed the color to light blue, I hope it's easier to read. I want it to be bright and arresting

Well, yes it certainly is that, a very bold statement with lines of tension mixed with despair. These are submerged between the dominant themes of youthful enthusiasm however... wouldn't you say?

(Much better on the eyes thanks so much. Such a considerate moderator indeed )
