***WARNING*** Posting of race times and results

It's that time again, RACING IS BACK!!! So this is a reminder to please not put race results or anything else that might give clues to race results, race weekend crashes, race weekend qualifying... in the titles of threads.

In the past some of our staff () have avoided forums, including this one, on race weekend due to having the results spoiled. Being from the U.S. sometimes we don't get to see races on TV for a week or two. Our members are from all around the globe. Some get to watch qualifying and races live, some don't get to see anything for weeks. Lets do our best this year not to spoil the experience for each other.

Here are 3 things to do when making a spoiler thread
  1. All threads should use the Prefix **SPOILER** in the title if you are including anything, and I mean anything that would give any clues to race results, race weekend crashes, race weekend qualifying... Do this by selecting "**Spoiler**" for the Title Prefix when creating a thread.
  2. Also, place your info into the Spoiler tag ( ) to hide it from sight.

    Spoiler!


    When replying to threads that do not have said **SPOILER** tags please do not add info or any clues to race results, race weekend crashes, race weekend qualifying... If you feel that it's justified to post spoiler info in a non spoiler thread, then you must use the Spoiler tag ( ) to hide it from sight.
  3. And finally, fill up the first 10 lines or so with blanks or "-" or "." or whatever so that the thread preview feature doesn't pop up the spoiler info.

Our staff will be giving out Infractions to members who give out too much info in the title of threads, don't use the **SPOILER** tag and/or post info in untagged threads. If you made a mistake and it's your first infraction don't take offense or lash out at the admin/mod, infractions are a way for us to keep a record of who listens and who doesn't. If however you make a habit out of this, don't be surprised to get a temp ban.

In case this isn't clear enough, here are some other threads for more info:

Thanks Y, I usually have to dvr the races and watch them during the week. It can be a real bummer when that anticipation gets ruined.

Thank you YSR!

Let's hope people can stick to this procedure and let the racing season start!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

a great reminder, especially with such a good showing expected from Kawi this year!

also, if peeps are posting a spoiler using the tags, they should remember that sometimes the spoiler itself can actually still be read when you hover your mouse icon over the thread title.

might i suggest if you are posting a spoiler using the tags, do something like this:

Spoiler!


that means that even if you hover over the post/thread your spoiler should not be visible.

here is to a good year!
