Default Posting of spoilers is occuring too frequently in this forum

Hi all,
lately I have noticed a few examples of people posting blatant spoilers for new release games. For example, some clown has posted screen shots of the ending cinematic of Metro 2033 in the Metro 2033 thread. In the Stalker COP thread, there were significant spoilers about the ending of the game.

I am currently playing through these games and I don't want the ending spoiled for me. These are very story driven games and any spoilers really do detract from my enjoyment of the game.

Please do not post spoilers without hiding the offending text behind spoiler alerts etc.

This stuff is common game forum etiquette.

I would also like to see greater moderation from forum moderators to clean up this stuff. This board is pretty self moderating, and I do like it that way, but I would appreciate it if spoilers could be dealt with when a moderator finds one.

Thanks for listening.

Tell me about. Some tend to go screen shot crazy showing critical parts of games you rather experience on your own. Be discreet about the screen shots you are taking even in the official screen shot thread especially if its from a game you torrented and is not in the hands of many users that's waiting to buy it or unlock it on steam.

Agreed, this forum has always been too spoiler-filled, and those Metro shots were ridiculous.

When you see the end credits over the top of a screenshot it kinda gives it away.

Agree. Non-labeled spoilers should be banned for a month.

LOL a month? That punishment is ridiculous.

Intentional spoilers will get at least 1 warning before a maximum ban of a week.

I will bring it to the attention of the other mods.
