I wanted to make a serious suggestion concerning the Arlong Park spoiler policy. Over the last couple of days I and several members of the podcast I run have run into spoilers on the forum on locations that can't necessarily can't be avoided. For example, the title of Chapter 574 which in and of itself may not be a spoiler and one other thread were visible on the front page:
I was thinking of an interesting solution that I believe we can all agree on when it concerns spoilers in our forum. My solution is to combine the Spoilers Forum with a RAW Forum to make "Spoilers/RAWs" so that until scanlations come out, those who enjoy reading the manga and not a bunch of pictures taken on a camera phone. This way we can all go to the manga forum without accidentally coming upon information that can potentially ruin a chapter. It would also make it possible for those curious if the raw was coming out could just go to that forum and see the RAW listed and say, "oh, the raw is out!" This way the progression of a chapter thread can go like this:
In the Spoiler/RAW Forum:
Spoiler Ch. 724
RAW Ch. 724
In the Manga Forum:
Chapter 724, "One Piece is Really a Sled"
That way, we don't have to be spoiled and everyone will know when the raw is out, and those who like reading a chapter to camera phone pictures and a rough translation will be able to do that. I propose this in the wake of spoilers that were posted all over the Manga Forum, all over peoples' profiles, and all over this forum in general.
Thank you all for your time,
