New 2017 Spoiler Policy
 
First, a slight adjustment for a movie’s main thread: no untagged spoilers within four (4) weeks of its North American release. After that point, spoiler discussion is allowed. For other threads (in other words, in all threads except the movie's main thread), no untagged spoilers until the movie is released on home video in North America. "Released on home video" means Digital HD or Bluray/disc, whatever comes first.

 

In a specific movie’s thread, you don’t need to specify what topic you’re spoiling. In general threads, tagged spoilers are fine, as long as you indicate what movie it's for. For example:
 
(INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE spoilers)

Maika Monroe’s scream is powerful enough to destroy alien shields.

 

Note: When a big blockbuster has a special Spoiler thread and another Spoiler-Free thread, spoilers are not allowed in the Spoiler-Free thread at all. The threads will be merged after the 4-week window and at that point it can be treated like a normal thread. This is the same policy we have right now, so people should be familiar with it.
 
Some movies do not have a theatrical release and go straight to VOD, or were produced specifically for streaming services (Netflix, Amazon). For those projects, we will assume a reasonable 2-month "theatrical" window where spoilers will apply. For example, if Netflix releases a movie on Jan. 20, spoilers would need to be tagged until March 20.

 

Suspensions/warnings/bans

Punishments will be up to the discretion of the staff, given the severity of what was spoiled and our interpretation of the intent. Someone who maliciously posts huge un-tagged spoilers for a highly anticipated movie — especially in an un-related thread —risks a long suspension or even a permaban. On the other hand, an excited conversation about a movie where someone accidentally slips too much detail into an answer may only get a PM, points, or a 24-hour suspension.

 

We think these new rules will help everyone, especially when it comes to platform releases around Oscar season and movies that have long international rollouts. That being said, we’re open to feedback and suggestions if someone has an idea they feel would help.

Only at the end do you realize the power of the Derby | Tournament #4

14 posts in this topic

1st place - $25 Fandango gift card ( or account credit equivalent )

2nd place - Gold Account credit

2nd place - Premium Account credit

 

As with all tournaments... you do not have to do anything special to join... just play the Derby as normal.

 

Seedings, if I didn't screw it up, will be based on the year to date standings.

 

I'm traveling over the weekend.  I should be able to create the initial brackets but if my WiFi is bad they might be delayed.

@AndyLL, Shouldn't this be the Final 4 now?  I thought there was an issue updating the brackets the prior week.

Yep, we didn't have all the actuals so the tallying was put on hold. 

 

These numbers should be after the missed bracket which if done would change the pairings because of who should have advanced the week before.

I'll take a look at it tonight.

 

Me being gone a week... the actuals being very late... and the crossing of the year really screwed things up.

Yep... it's a week off.  Which likely means the results are wrong.  I'm going to clear all the results and re-run them

Ok... the '53' weekends in 2016 really screwed it up.

 

Everything is recalculated.

 

We are down to the final 4
