Now that The Legend of Korra is a main board, and soon we'll start getting more information about the new series, we have created this child board for discussing TLOK spoilers.

So, what qualifies as a TLOK spoiler? We'll let you know! This rules topic will be modified soon to explain the guidelines for this child board.

In the meantime, please continue the TLOK speculation in the main Legend of Korra board. And please refrain from posting threads in this spoilers board for now, which should be easy to do since we have no spoilers yet Smiley


Edit -- See post below.

TLOK Spoilers Guidelines


With SDCC 2011 approaching, ASN staff have deliberated and we have agreed on the following guidelines regarding spoilers for "The Legend of Korra".


I. The following things are considered SPOILERS and discussion of them must be limited to the TLOK SPOILERS BOARD
  • Exclusive showing of an episode at a convention like SDCC. (TLOK example: The first episode of Book Two: Spirits)
  • Episode purchase release on Amazon.com, Google Play, Xbox, and Hulu before it is officially shown on Nick.com (TLOK example: all episodes from 309 onwards were released on those sites before they are shown for free on Nick.com at 12pm EST or before that)
  • Details about the plot of one or more episodes, revealed at SDCC or elsewhere (ATLA example: Katara will confront her mother's killer two episodes before the series finale).
  • Details about character development, revealed at SDCC or elsewhere (ATLA example: Azula suffers a mental breakdown after Mai and Ty Lee betray her).
  • Leaks of any kind, be they episode titles or plots or whatever else (ATLA example: the full episode of Lake Laogai being available to watch on Turbonick two weeks before it was supposed to premiere on TV, then taken down when they noticed the mistake).
  • Episodes premiering and information released in other countries before they are broadcast in the US (ATLA example: Season 3 episodes airing in the UK and Canada before Nickelodeon shows them in the US).
  • Anything officially released ahead of time, (ATLA example: Sozin's Comet book released weeks before the series finale aired on TV).
  • Offhand comments by Avatar staff when not in official capacity (Example: If there's an autograph signing and someone asks Mike and Bryan if we'll see Ursa during TLOK, and they respond by winking and saying "Maaaaaaaaaayyyyyybe".)


II. Things that are considered SPOILERS but still are NOT ALLOWED to be discussed in the TLOK Spoilers Board
  • Links to full episodes on youtube, putfile, etc.
  • Illegally obtained spoilers (ATLA example: DoBS being available somewhere on the internet weeks before it was supposed to premiere on TV). IMPORTANT: Note that if illegal spoilers aren't allowed to be discussed in the Korra Spoilers board, then that also means that IMAGES from those illegal spoilers aren't allowed to be posted in the board either, and by extension, images from leaked spoilers are NOT ALLOWED to be used in avatars or signatures.
  • Fake spoilers. Speculation is fine, but making up fake spoilers on purpose makes you an ass and such fake spoilers are not allowed. So please don't be an ass.


III. The following things are NOT SPOILERS and can therefore be discussed outside of the TLOK Spoilers Board
  • Images and video from SDCC panels (trailers, screenshots of the trailers, slide shows, interviews, Q&As, etc). This means that images from SDCC are allowed to be used in avatars/signatures. Since some of the info from SDCC would still be considered as spoilers (plot details, character development; see List I), make sure to label SDCC-related threads clearly (just adding [SDCC] in the title should be enough) in case the mods need to move them to the Korra Spoilers board.
  • Speculation about future episodes, as long as no spoiler details are discussed (note that there will be official threads in the Legend of Korra board for speculation about every new episode, just like there used to be in the ATLA board).
  • Names of characters, mentioned at SDCC or elsewhere.
  • Episode titles, when released by official sources (SDCC panels, Nick schedule website, TV guide, etc). This also applies to the short episode description blurbs that usually accompany the TV listing for the episode.
  • Advertisements on TV channels, regardless if they're in the US or in other countries.


Threads created in the TLOK Spoilers board will be moved to the Legend of Korra board once their topics are no longer spoilers if it's a good idea to keep the thread open for additional discussion. Otherwise, a thread that is no longer a spoiler and doesn't get moved to the TLOK board will simply be locked.

We reserve the right to alter these guidelines in the future if any changes are deemed necessary. And as always, all Forum Rules apply.

REMINDER ABOUT LEAKS

Posting links to unauthorized leaks is NOT ALLOWED. That includes videos AND images. We will be removing any links that have been posted so far, and any links that get posted from now on will earn the person who posts the links a seven-day ban.

You can still talk about the spoilers in those leaks, discuss them in as much detail as you want (in the TLOK Spoilers board), but absolutely no links to the leaks are allowed to be posted in any threads or any signatures.

DO NOT ASK FOR LEAKS

Do not attempt to ask how/where to get links to the illegal leaks in any shape or form. That includes "I wish someone would PM me" or "SOMEONE PM ME NOW!!!"

If you have links to the leaks, please keep it to yourself and do not post "PM me for the leaks!"

Any attempt to do so will warrant a 3 day ban.

A few important notes regarding the first episode
(before the TV premiere date)




I. Note The First:

All discussion of this episode MUST be constrained to the TLOK Spoilers board. The episode hasn't been broadcast yet so it's still technically a spoiler.



II. Note The Second:

I'm going to allow posting of images from the episode, but they MUST stay within the TLOK Spoilers board. No images from the episode (that we hadn't seen before in legit previews) in avatars or signatures, and no images from the episode in Pai Sho games or anywhere outside of the TLOK Spoilers board.



III. Note The Third:

No linking to streams or downloads of this episode will be allowed, unless/until Nickelodeon explicitly gives permission for the general public to watch.

Meaning: if and/or when the episode gets released through Korra Nation, we will allow people to post links to the KN streams/downloads.

However, since it's not clear that the episode hosted on nickpress is supposed to be viewed by everyone, then we won't be allowing any linking to watch the episode online or to download it. Same goes for posting the username/password needed to watch the episode in that site -- no more mentions of that from now on, ok?






Edit -- And if for some reason this isn't clear, the 7-day tempban for posting a video link rule also applies here.

Question:
The first two episodes will be released via Korra Nation. Does that mean they're not spoilers anymore?


Answer:

It depends.


Scenario #1: The episodes are available only to members of Korra Nation

In this case, we'll be considering the episodes as SPOILERS, and therefore all discussion of them should continue to be limited to the TLOK spoilers board.



Scenario #2: The episodes are available for anyone to watch (region-locked or not)

If anyone can watch the episodes on the Korra Nation website, then they'll be considered as NOT SPOILERS and can be talked about anywhere on the forums. We will open the official discussion threads in the TLOK Episode Discussion board AND people will be allowed to use images from the episodes in their avatars and signatures.




So we'll have to wait until Saturday to see whether the episodes are still spoilers or not.

Question:
The last two episodes of Book 2: Spirits might be released via Korra Nation if this post reaches 10,000 reblogs. When that happens and the episode is released, does that mean they're not spoilers anymore?

Answer:

It depends.


Scenario #1: The episodes are available only to members of Korra Nation

In this case, we'll be considering the episodes as SPOILERS, and therefore ALL discussion of the finale should continue to be limited to the TLOK spoilers board.



Scenario #2: The episodes are available for anyone to watch (region-locked or not)

If anyone can watch the episodes on the Korra Nation website, then they'll be considered as NOT SPOILERS and can be talked about anywhere on the forums. We will open the official discussion threads in the TLOK Episode Discussion board AND people will be allowed to use images from the episodes in their avatars and signatures.




So we'll have to wait until midnight tonight (a few hours after eps 211 & 212 air on TV) to see whether the episodes are still spoilers or not.

Episodes 213 & 214 are no longer considered spoilers. Refer to scenario 2 below.


Scenario #2: The episodes are available for anyone to watch (region-locked or not)

If anyone can watch the episodes on the Korra Nation Nick.com website, then they'll be considered as NOT SPOILERS and can be talked about anywhere on the forums. We will open the official discussion threads in the TLOK Episode Discussion board AND people will be allowed to use images from the episodes in their avatars and signatures.

Even if the episodes are region-locked, it is still available to everyone in the USA and we do not consider that a spoiler.

There are threads (shipping, specific characters) which are discussing about the finale. They are NOT considered spoilers. We understand that there a people who are unable to watch the finale and we apologize for those threads having finale info. If you do not wish to be spoiled, we advise you to avoid ASN for a week until the finale airs on TV.
