|Ten Forward → Spoilers (Reply | Watch)|
For some reason I am unable to create new talk pages and since this actually involves several related things, I figured this wasn't totally out of place in the forum.
Is there a reason for Template:Spoiler novel to exist? The function it serves can, at least to me, be just as easily served by Template:majorspoiler. And, even if that template is kept a category should be created to go along with it, so we can hunt down the spoiler tags more easily and remove them.
Speaking of removing them, as has been asked elsewhere without a definite consensus, how long should we leave them on pages? When I go through and remove them I only take them off when the source has been out for a year to ensure no controversy. On the other hand, the comments on that talk page seem to suggest 6 months is a reasonable time limit. I'm fine either way, I'd just like to have a consensus and policy established.
- For me, 6 months is definitely a decent period of time to clear the templates are articles. I like the idea of merging "majorspoiler" and "spoiler novel", giving it arguments so that it drops into various categories to sort out that way. That might be a good idea. -- sulfur (talk) 18:53, January 14, 2013 (UTC)
