Just a suggestion but could we introduce a rule where PPV spoilers are banned from the Shoutbox for a few days at least, maybe 3 days, that sounds like a fair amount of time.

I suggest this because I know many members outside the US are not able to see PPV's untill several days after the live broadcast so its annoying to come on here and find the results being discussed in the Shoutbox. Obviously its not a problem to talk about the results in threads because anyone not wanting to know can just avoid the threads in question.

I know not everyone feels this way, but I personally hate watching a show where I already know the results.

* So say no PPV spoilers in the shoutbox until tuesday? That way those who can't watch it live have all of monday to sort it or can avoid the forum until they have finished watching it tuesday.
 
* People would still be fine to talk in there about television shows because Fletcher is on about pay per views only.
 
* Sounds fair to me. Especially for TNA pay per views which we don't get over here until the following Wednesday night.

3 days sounds fair to me - I don't always get the opportunity to catch up with the PPVs until the Wednesday after. I agree with Fletch that watching a show when you already know what's going to happen ruins it for me.

With that in mind maybe we should ask that people dont post any PPV spoilers in the shoutbox untill the friday following the event?

I know thats 5 days after but were only talking about the Shoutbox, its not like were asking people to not talk in the threads.

Main reason I suggest this is because I dont want to have to boycott the forum untill ive watched the PPV's.

I honestly don't have a problem with it. My posts never show up until someone refreshes anyhow. However, a reminder should be made throughout the day just incase someone forgets about the spoiler ban.

Glad that people are being so agreeable about this suggestion - I know its a pain but over here in the UK the PPV's air live at 1am so dont finish untill 4am and most people dont want to stay up that late or cant due to having work the next day etc. Plus as Admin said we dont get the TNA PPV's untill the wednesday on a 3 day delay.

Im happy to post a announcement in the shoutbox just before PPV as a reminder but as the shoutbox randomly empties all the time it might be better if Admin can post a sticky announcement next to the PPV thread.

* PPV spoilers in the shoutbox shouldn't be the same for both WWE and TNA because WWE ones are live over here.
 
* Tuesday for WWE and Friday for TNA sounds fair to me.
 
* Should someone forget about it me and Pac can completely empty the shoutbox soon as we see it and then make a short post in there with a reminder.

That sounds fair to me mate. The longer delay with the TNA PPV's shouldnt cause to much upset as their is far less interest in TNA than WWE on the forum anyway.

If anyone cant see the WWE PPV's untill much later in the week and dont want any results spoilt the only option is to completely avoid the forum.

I'm actually surprised this place didn't already have this rule. Every other wrestling forum I go to has it.
