Clarification on Spoiler Policy for Fate/Zero (UPDATED!)
Fate/Zero is a rather interesting case because it is a prequel to a story that has already received an anime adaptation. Because of the popularity of the original game and the resulting anime (and movie), there is a large audience who already have some hints about about what should happen in Fate/Zero based simply on the future timeline shown in Fate/Stay Night. However, Fate/Zero is still a separate work, even though is set in the same overall universe. Our Spoiler Policy still applies:
If you have read the Fate/Zero light novels and/or are otherwise familiar with the story, please use extreme caution when participating in anime threads. Any hints, suggestions, or attempt to draw attention to certain matters based on knowledge of the source will be considered spoilers, and subject to warnings, infractions and bans. Repeat spoiler offenders who cannot help themselves may be subject to bans of the entire duration of the show's airing.
However, given this unique situation, we recognize that there are many fans with some related knowledge who will wish to discuss the connections to what they already know. To help meet this need, we have created some additional threads. (We're sorry that there are so many, but there are so many different types of viewers with different needs. Please find the one that suits you.)
We'd ask for everyone's assistance to report posts that reveal any inappropriate spoilers, and that you please direct all spoilers and speculation to the appropriate threads.
Thanks for your cooperation and enjoy the show!
Hi everyone -- this is to let you know that we have revised the policy in light of the feedback received by you and also members of the staff familiar with Fate/Zero and the Fate/Stay Night franchise. Please review the new/updated policy above. The main change is to clarify that we will no longer allow any Fate/Stay Night discussion at all in the Fate/Zero episode threads, but instead have created new threads specifically to house this sort of discussion for each of the different "viewer groups". It's a bit complicated, but this seemed to be the only way to please everyone.
We are aware that the confusion about this policy resulted in some spoiler-related issues in the Fate/Zero Episode 1 thread, but we hope that this new policy will help eliminate all unwanted spoilers while still providing a suitable space for everyone to discuss their Fate/Stay Night-related speculations. If you have any further comments or concerns, please feel free to direct them to myself or any other member of the Moderation or Admin Staff.
