The following states the rules which are to be adhered to about the spoiling of episodes and leaked content.
A spoiler is considered the direct or indirect posting of any information regarding an episode or clip of RWBY and any related media prior to its registered users' release on the Rooster Teeth website or via official Rooster Teeth social media.
Content that was intended to be shown to limited audiences only, such as RTX exclusives or at limited screenings (i.e. content specifically noted as being for the attendees of an event only), are also considered spoilers under the policy.
There is an exception for content that is intended to remain FIRST-only indefinitely, as said content may contain information that should be logged on the wiki.
In ambiguous cases, administrators will make a decision on whether content is considered permissible or not under spoiler policy. If in doubt, please Report the comment using the Report button and moderation staff will review it.
For discussion of material considered spoilers, a moderator may create a thread in which discussion is permitted. It will be clearly stated in the thread that this is the case. This is the only place where discussion of spoiler material is permitted. Note that these threads are for discussion only; direct links to illegal streaming sites or leaked material remains an offense.
For the rest, however, note that this is still a zero-tolerance policy; staff will promptly take action as outlined below.
Any user who posts a spoiler outside the chat dedicated Spoiler channel before the registered users' release will promptly receive a two-hour ban from chat and be given an explanation on their message wall. Discussing the content of an unreleased episode in PM to those who have given you permission is acceptable. Users are prohibited from posting a link to the "blip" of the episode or to an illegal download/stream in the main chat.
2. Blogs, Comments, and Thread Posts
There will be a dedicated Spoiler Discussion thread made for new episodes while they are FIRST-exclusive. Because uploaded images are visible elsewhere on the wiki, do not post screenshots in the Spoiler Discussion thread until the registered users' release of the episode.
Users are not allowed to publish any content into blogs/comment/threads with spoilers outside of the dedicated Spoiler Discussion thread until the registered users' release.
3. Editing Pages
Users are not allowed to add new information from an upcoming episode to a page, or create a page about said information until the episode's registered users' release. Only the episode's name, thumbnail and running time can be added before the release.
4. Renaming Pages
Pages may not be renamed to match new information from an episode until its registered users' release. Administration will rename the episode's corresponding article.
5. Uploading Images
Do not add images of episodes until its registered users' release.
6. Other Methods
Should a user post a spoiler on the Wiki via a method not described above, a temporary ban or block will be still be given.
