Which brings up a question that I've asked several times and never gotten a satisfactory answer... How long do keep the Template:Spoiler novel ---tag on an article? six month? a year?

I only use it on stuff in which a series status quo is changed (Missing in Action) or if there is a recent cliffhanger resolution (Warpath). --Turtletrekker 21:28, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Couple of months, maybe three? If you are worried about spoilers you'd have read by then wouldn't you? -- 8of5 21:40, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

I'd like to go at least six months, just for the sake of the authors and editor (KRAD, Christopher L. Bennett, Andy Mangels, Michael Schuster, Marco Palmieri) that have been very helpful and forthcoming with my e-mails and inquiries. KRAD in particular thanked me for making certain articles detailed without being too spoilery, and I know which article that Christopher L. Bennett wrote anonymously. Also, Andy Mangels has sent me info on certain Titan characters that I've yet to incorporate. Infact, I really shopuld find time to do that, as he sent me the info a while ago... --Turtletrekker 21:53, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Soooo... there was never a rsolution to this question. I consider 6 months to be a good period of time to leave the spoiler tags on. Anyone else have a suggestion? (My apologies if this was brought up somewhere else before, I didn't see it.)--Long Live the United Earth 18:44, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

I concur. Six months should be just about enough. Two or three aren't really enough when novels such as What Judgments Come are released four months later in the UK than they are in the States. I almost cannot wait for my copy to arrive - Should be any day now! -- Cyfa 21:10, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
