|This page documents a Wiki guideline. It is the accepted standard that editors should follow, although it should be treated with common sense, as occasional exceptions will apply. When editing this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus.|
This is the official page for the spoiler policy of The Last of Us Wiki. All contributors are required to read all the policies thoroughly and completely before editing. Failure to comply with these rules can result in a warning, and if continued, a block. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact an active administrator.
What is a Spoiler?Edit
A spoiler is any form of information that may be potentially revealing to plot and story elements that some people may wish to remain revealed so that they may enjoy the source material to its fullest extent, without having any previous knowledge of said information. This may include, but not limited to, the death of a major character or an unexpected plot twist. Spoilers are expressed both in writing and through images.
Spoilers on the WikiEdit
The Last of Us Wiki is dedicated to collecting extensive information about The Last of Us video game series and its related media, from elements of its storyline to gameplay, as we aim to create a comprehensive and informative wiki on the subject of The Last of Us. With that being said, The Last of Us Wiki contains unmarked spoilers on every mainspace article. We discourage readers who wish not to be spoiled from reading our wiki, specifically from character biographies to chapter summaries. As noted on this page, we recommend users to read at their own risk!
Policies on SpoilersEdit
With spoilers being such potentially controversial subjects, we have detailed a list of policies regarding spoilers below. Failure to comply with these rules can result in a warning, and if continued, a block.
- Articles, forums, talk pages, and blog posts are not required to be marked for spoilers. People may discuss anything and it's not for an editor to police it. If you wish not to be spoiled, we suggest to read discussions and articles carefully.
- The beginning lines of a section or article may not be allowed to detail a potential spoiler. If you come across a scenario such as this, please reword the information to prevent any opening spoilers or message an active administrator.
- Despite the potentially large amount of spoilers on the wiki, we ask users to be courteous to other users who may not wish to be spoiled.
- Userpage content is additionally at the discretion of the user. Spoilers may often occur on userpages, and it is up to that user if they want to tag spoilers on their page.
- Adding unreleased and/or leaked information detailing storyline details for any media subject before its official release is prohibited. Doing so may result in a block from the wiki.
- Do not message a user or an administrator, or create a discussion any where on the wiki, regarding your discontent from being spoiled on the wiki. We understand being spoiled is culturally unaccepted and aggravating, especially for a storyline such as The Last of Us, but we create policy pages such as this one to warn users to prevent them from complaining.
