The title is a spoiler?? 'open' could mean ANYTHING. I assumed it meant a new area was open, as that's how we usually say that. It was marked spoiler properly and everything.

This is still a beta test. Turns out, this area has bugs. I think it's a good thing it was posted, not a bad thing. In a week, none of you will have to worry about spoilers on the beta forum because you won't be on it either.

This is a -good- crowd, that cares about accidental spoilers and such. If you keep calling every topic title a 'spoiler' then they'll just put 'spoiler' in the topic and nothing else, and leave it at that. Then you'll never have a hint as to what might be spoiled, and whether you can view the topic or not.


the subject has been changed. it used to read something like "library is open"

Ah, my bad. I didn't realize that was possible.

Apparently the library is a super-secret location in the city.

No but there was a whole argument last week about how spoilerish to make thread titles.

You just had the misfortune to run afoul of it.

Well, frankly, this is a little weird. Maybe the title itself was once a spoiler. But by removing that spoiler, and then not adding it to the body of the post, the information is now gone unless you are willing to deduce it indirectly from the replies...

I just think that's a little odd...

I agree that care needs to be taken when altering the title or posts that have been replied to already. Always make sure the meaning is intact. Some do it by inserting an edit in the first post to explain that something has been changed on the original topic / post.
