    Exclamation Remember The Spoiler Heading!!!

    As the new race season is upon us, please rememeber to put "spoiler" in the title if posting results of the races.

    That includes comments like "Can you beleive Rossi crashed?", "Max is back!" etc..........


    Also, please refrain from making results comments in other threads, like the qualifying thread after a race as many people mght not have seen the race itself yet.

    Here's to a great 2007!!!!!

    Nice way to put it JCR

    Thanks for this JCR - hopefully it will stop others from making a simple mistake (as I did recently) by not knowing there is a common practice amongst regular forum users.

    For those of us who are infrequent users/browsers, some of these practices are not immediately obvious - honestly, I'm not really that stupid....... just thoughtless !!
    Cheers,

    Me too I found out the hard-way what "spoiler" meant, sorry. Lesson learned my sporting friends. I'm sure there are many more out there that have no idea what multiple meanings this word has.

    I "liked" the WSBK FB page and accidentally found out the results to the first race of the season. Not sure if I should remove it to keep this from happening again but the extra info they share may not be worth spoiling the race. This really wouldn't be ab issue if Speed showed the race live instead of some infomercial or rerun race in the wee hours of the night.

    I found out the results of WSBK Donington Race 1 inadvertently thanks to Facebook. I have blocked the news reports, so that at least Race 2 will be a surprise.
