As the clock ticks down to new season (finally!) starting, I just want to put out a heads-up on what pre-released information is and isn't considered spoilers.
Anything shown in any trailer for any episode is considered a spoiler and is not permitted anywhere on Wiki 24. This includes cast lists found online or off. Likewise, any official Fox press releases about the show or future episodes or movies, or information from interviews, websites or news sources is not permitted.
That said, some information about future episodes is permitted on Wiki 24, however:
- Crew lists, such as writers, directors, producers, key grips, etc. are irrelevant to the plot and may be added to Wiki 24 ahead of time if desired, though it's usually not customary to do so.
- Fox.com provides character profiles online several weeks before each new season begins. These profiles are considered an original IU source, and as such are permitted for inclusion here once they're posted.
- The Season 7 prequel movie "Redemption" is being released on DVD two days after it airs. One of the bonus features of the disc is the first sixteen minutes of the Season 7 premiere. This is an official release and not a trailer and is therefore permissible for inclusion here once it's released.
I hope this clears up any confusion before it arises. This thread can be bumped as The Day gets closer. In the meantime, happy editing! --Proudhug 15:54, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
- Fox.com has the S7 actor bios up, but not the character bios yet. Usually they're up by now. In the event that they still put them up early this year, keep in mind that this information is not spoilers.
- So, is everyone ready for the onslaught?? --Proudhug 06:36, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
- Good to know man. And, no... I'm not really ready for this. But I sure as hell am excited for it ! 07:42, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
