Hey all...just revisiting this topic a little. Please avoid giving away story elements or major surprise features of newly released games, especially in your thread titles. This goes for blogs that are attached to the forums as well. In the body of posts, please use the site's built in spoiler tag feature where appropriate.

Spoilers in posts not clearly marked will be deleted, the same goes for spoilers in thread titles. Those intentionally trying to spoil things for others will find their account status under review.

Thank you!

Mordecai dies.

(If that happens I must be psychic, because I have no idea about any of the plotlines of Borderlands 2)

I always love spoilers in thread titles, especially when people put spoiler tags at the end, like it's going to help. "Darth Vader is Luke Skywalkers father! *spoilers*!"

I remember several topics giving away huge plot details about Red Dead Redemption like that. The story in Borderlands isn't exactly very important, but it's nice to see mods cracking down on this. Especially as some of us have to wait until Friday to play it..

Clap Trap is the final boss. It turns out that he is operated by a midget inside. Spoilers.

I agree with the sentiment, though isn't this the sort of thing best suited for general discussion rather than just the BL2 board?

Holy hell the mods are anal about this one. The ability to change your appearance and respec is now considered a spoiler? Why are any posts about anything game related allowed to exist?

Its pretty much just MB but I agree it seems super ridiculous. Especially since there is a proper spoiler button to hide spoilery parts of the game. Its doubly funny considering I doubt most people are coming to BL2 for story anyways.

I'm not even sure which thread you are talking about, and it certainly isn't the one I was referring to in my post.

you may find it funny, but people who really care about Borderlands don't. I'm sure you wouldn't want a game you care about being spoiled, so how about showing a little respect for others' tastes. Thank you.

Why is this in the bl2 forums? I know this has been happening there but I fell like this is general discussion information.

Well, it is in the rules and we really don't need another sticky. Once it's been a week or so I plan to move this topic over to General.
