Want be in Avengers 5
So here we are. This is the official thread for Game of Thrones S8 Episode 1 of 6. This is the end. Everything that has come before is fair game to discuss, in fact, I have recently been told there are several books and while that is shocking news, you are welcome to reference them as well. So here be Dragons and new rules -
1. There will be a thread for each episode.
Spoilers for interviews or previews about future show material in spoiler blocks. Speculation based on an outside source should be in spoiler blocks too.
The books exist. It’s all real.
To spoiler protect these threads from books eight or more years behind, where John Snow was just betrayed, where Tyrion stands outside the gates having not yet met Dany? That feels like weird moderation performance art, and I will not be requiring it.
2. That said, please liberally use spoiler blocks on book material you think might somehow be a spoiler.
I mean, it’s hard to even say what that is, but your good thoughtful people so be so. Use your best judgment. I may step in and block text I feel needs to be, but I am going to use a light touch.
3. There will be a general topic thread called “Game of Thrones S8 General Discussion.”
Why? If you want to discuss the minutia of S4 or pine for Lady Stoneheart it should not clog new episode reactions, but I will trust some discretion here. I may redirect book discussion here if it’s gotten distracting. The books are now fair game, but fifty posts in an episode thread on how the Sand Snakes were better developed in the books is not fun. So I will redirect here as needed.
4. A light touch is the go to.
Expect purple text when I think we need guidance. Only behavior I feel is in violation of the more general rules of the board is gonna get red unless somebody ignores me asking them be considerate.
5. As noted in TT universal amnesty has been granted to all Game of Thrones TV show threads.
If people act as poor board citizens the rules apply as ever, but I am not going to be enforcing any ban from the show threads or the related general thread. Welcome back. Have fun.
