Happy Japanese Dark Dawn release date day everybody!  *pulls out the almighty ban hammer, and drops it on a desk in front of everybody*  Now that the game has officially been released I'd like to remind everyone of the usage of [spoiler] tags on these forums, as well as general courtesies when it comes to spoilers.


Spoiler etiquette/rules

- All spoilers should be placed inside of spoiler tags
- DO NOT PUT SPOILERS IN TOPIC TITLES!!!
- If you're creating a topic for discussing something that is a spoiler, warn people by adding "*Spoilers*" or something similar to the beginning of the topic title
- DO NOT PUT SPOILERS IN TOPIC TITLES!!!!!
- Don't talk around spoilers outside of spoiler tags, Example: "Wasn't it cool when that guy did that thing to that other guy who turned out to really be a you-know-what?"
- When in doubt, spoiler tag it


How to use spoiler tags

- [spoiler=reason]Content[/spoiler]

This is the basic form of the spoiler tag note that setting a reason is optional, and the reason itself should never actually be a spoiler.  Let's look at an example:

[spoiler=chapter 8 of wizardyguy's Harry Potter fanfic]Zombie Dumbledorf kills Harry Potter's distant cousin's room mate's ex-girlfriend's uncle.[/spoiler]

which gives us this:

Spoiler for chapter 8 of wizardyguy's Harry Potter fanfic:
Zombie Dumbledorf kills Harry Potter's distant cousin's room mate's ex-girlfriend's uncle.


When to use spoiler tags

So what would qualify as a spoiler?  Well, this topic is kind of fuzzy different people have different ideas of what constitutes a spoiler, but as a general rule think major plot points, places, people, or special items/abilities that might have been a bit surprising/unexpected when they're revealed, and might ruin that feeling of surprise for someone else if they learn about it too early.  If in doubt you should treat anything that hasn't already been revealed about the game in the previews as a spoiler!  It's much better to err on the side of caution, and mark something that isn't a spoiler as one, than to not mark something that is.



I will be enforcing the use of spoiler tags, as well as keeping spoilers out of topic titles.  Most infractions will just result in a verbal warning, but if I see multiple continuous infractions from the same person it may result in a temporary ban.  This will be effective for spoilers relating to Dark Dawn until further notice, it will be at least several months after the release of the game before this policy is no longer in effect.

Does anyone else have anything to add to this?

Salanewt: Updated it to provide more info that I forgot to mention.
October 13, 2018, 03:16:48 AM
Salanewt: I'm still trying to iron out IQ 2 but I'm pretty sure it's entirely random targeting.
October 13, 2018, 03:16:29 AM
Salanewt: Oh yeah, I posted some more info about enemy IQ.

FoxThe HTML5 project is too small to count

Luna_blade: there is jjppof's html5 project...
October 12, 2018, 06:19:17 AM
Luna_blade: Though Momo rings a bell it seems I came here after you left
October 11, 2018, 12:49:41 AM
Fox: (If that makes sense.)
October 11, 2018, 12:48:33 AM
Fox: Yeah, I guess so.  More just saying that's a good place to get answers to GS related questions at the moment.
October 11, 2018, 12:42:28 AM
Crystal Sonata: I did before, but I guess I could try it again
October 11, 2018, 12:41:32 AM
Fox: Not much at the moment. This forum seems pretty quiet. Perhaps you'd be interested in joining the Discord for GSHC that seems to have more activity?
October 10, 2018, 11:16:53 PM
Crystal Sonata: Any projects going on? I need a distraction from the daily grind and I'm interested in hacking GS again.
October 10, 2018, 10:02:53 PM
Fox: Thanks, and good to see you too!
October 10, 2018, 10:02:10 PM
Fox: A few people I'm sure... Most likely the regulars of the past. Such as Atrius, Charon, Role, Salanewt....
October 10, 2018, 03:11:17 AM
Crystal Sonata: I find myself wondering who still remembers me here. Obvs you do (Good to see ya Tea)
October 10, 2018, 12:46:11 AM
Fox: On second thought, it might be because you haven't posted much as Crystal Sonata.
October 10, 2018, 12:41:12 AM
Fox: And your intro isn't that bad. - I imagine most people would say the same about theirs?
October 10, 2018, 12:39:39 AM
Fox: :O - You've been gone so long, I think I forgot you were Momo.  Interesting.
October 09, 2018, 10:23:39 PM
Crystal Sonata: I just revisited my dark past on here and ouch. Someone delete that introduction thread please, the cringe.
October 09, 2018, 08:26:11 AM
Crystal Sonata: Aaaaand, she re-appears yet again. My life keeps dragging me away from the internet sadly.
October 01, 2018, 01:27:50 PM
Luna_blade: haha oof.
