Could you please cut this as it's a major spoiler and lots of people don't want to know anything in advance?
outlawmusicdjpodculture on November 28th, 2006 04:00 pm (UTC)
As this was only confirmation of something that has already been out in the rumor mill for months I really don't think it is that huge of a spoiler. Sad yes, but not that spoilerish.
JaneDavitt: carsonbysorgenmondjanedavitt on November 28th, 2006 04:15 pm (UTC)
It is a spoiler, IMO, it's not even 100% on topic for this group, and a cut takes seconds to do.

We all define spoilers differently, I guess, but for me, if it's something that will mean you'll watch an episode with a good idea of what's going to happen, rather than watch it unfold naturally, then you're spoiled.

No, this is spoilerish. I was not aware of the rumor as I was actively avoiding spoilers for the rest of the season of SG-1 and Atlantis. Now, I have been spoiled.

Please put this behind a cut so others can avoid being spoiled.

Thank you.

I agree, this is a major spoiler and should be put under a cut. Just because it has been around for a while, doesn't mean it's any less of a spoiler.
outlawmusicdjpodculture on November 28th, 2006 04:17 pm (UTC)
OK I guess I could see where it could be considered a spoiler if no one had heard of this before, but since this has long since been rumored I just don't see it as that big of a deal.

If really IS that huge of a deal then you may want to write to the various news sources, podcasts, websites that have (or will be) posting this as well.

Is the BBC spoiling Dr. Who just because Season Two has long since aired over there and is just now winding up here in the states? Should all the Firefly/Serenity based sites remove all the "Wash Dies" info because some have not seen the movie? Are all the "Rosebud" jokes spoiling the film Citizen Kane?

Where does one draw the line when it comes to "spoilers"?

Putting on the Mod Hat, OMG!
It's a casting bit, which therefore makes it HIGHLY SPOILERLISH! Casting changes, for outgoing more than incoming, are considered spoilerly. Some people don't want to know about the incoming, but most people, unless open to spoilers, don't want to know about the outgoing.

Some people don't follow the rumors, but go out of their way to ignore said rumors.

It's just a nice thing to offer a cut, or a link, to information which has not officially come out on the screen yet.

It's always good to have spoiler cuts around for at least a season, that way you aren't spoilering people who have not been able to see the show yet. We should see lots of this happening when Canada and the UK get the second half of SG-1 and SGA before the US does. But wherever it shows first, there will be spoiler cuts to offer courtesy.

Thanks for changing the info into a link!

Cut, please! This is a spoiler if the episode it refers to hasn't aired.

I'm not trying to be a pain, but I didn't know anything in that article - so it kinda was a spoiler >_< *backs away*
outlawmusicdjpodculture on November 28th, 2006 04:31 pm (UTC)
I HAVE tried to do a cut, but for some reason it is not working. (and yes I read the FAQ on how to do it)
Karenruinsofmysanity on November 28th, 2006 04:36 pm (UTC)
Then please delete it until you can figure out how to use a cut.
outlawmusicdjpodculture on November 28th, 2006 04:38 pm (UTC)
Ahem I HAVE figured out how to use one.....as I just stated it is not working! (could be the wonky craptastic browser here at work) Also if you noticed I worked out a compromise that should suffice.
Karenruinsofmysanity on November 28th, 2006 04:41 pm (UTC)
Thank you for linking. Please don't get cranky - when I posted that last comment, the link was not yet in effect.
outlawmusicdjpodculture on November 28th, 2006 04:50 pm (UTC)
You are welcome. Not cranky per se (although I am lacking much needed caffiene) I just plain don't see what the fuss is all about, since this was all over the place months ago, and the story gives no real details as to what exactly happens.

For what it's worth, thanks for sharing the info (behind a cut or not) I hadn't heard about it, and I appreciated being clued in.
outlawmusicdjpodculture on November 28th, 2006 09:35 pm (UTC)
You are welcome! I thought some of the folk here might appreciate it, and since Christina and I are on hiatus right now regarding our Stargate Louisville podcast (new eps coming soon I promise over at www.StargateLouisville.net) I wanted to get the news out ASAP!

SPOILER-ish comment
I've tried to stay away from specific spoilers in this comment, but if you are reading comments, I would think you want to be spoiled anyway. So, consider this your warning.

Thank you for the casting confirmation story. Even if it's "not SG1-related," I still am closely following Atlantis, so I enjoyed reading the story.

It's so sad to read things like this. And while I will enjoy seeing an oldie on SGA S4, I think it's going to be a mistake to be booting out one of the best actors on SGA for an SG1 actor to crossover. SGA is an independent entity in many ways.

No worries about the spoiler-ishness for this news on my front--I've known for months that something unpleasant was going to occur in SGA casting. I was so bummed to hear about it initially and my feelings haven't changed.

Re: SPOILER-ish comment
The same here too...we were quite bummed but it IS eased by the other bits of casting news that was in the article.

I hadn't heard all this, but I'm a spoiler slut so thanks for posting it!
I'm not sure how, but I missed all of that and that bit about Amanda too!
outlawmusicdjpodculture on November 28th, 2006 09:39 pm (UTC)
You are welcome! Even if we aren't cranking out the the Stargate Louisville podcasts like we should we like to keep on top of things.

I'd just like to say that your subject line still offends and spoils. I had heard the rumors, but rumors come and go, and I had no idea they had been confirmed, nor did I want to know if they were confirmed. This is exactly why I had been avoiding Gateworld: because I didn't want Atlantis spoilers; and I certainly wouldn't have expected them on an SG-1 community.
