Poll: Manga Discussions and Spoilers

Postby Kor » November 27th, 2016, 3:43 am

I want to get some feedback on this from you people, and not just registered users but also lurkers ('sup lurkers!)

Please answer this poll: http://www.strawpoll.me/11743534 (note: it's only about Detective Conan)

A long long time ago (...3 years ago...?) we basically had 2 threads for every manga case discussion: one where people can post spoilers, and one which was spoiler free and you weren't allowed to post spoilers at all and you could only talk about the file once there was an English translation available. I don't know if this is a system worth reviving, especially when the number of users who discuss stuff is smaller nowadays, but at least I want to know where the community stands as a whole about spoilers vs no spoilers.

Since I only joined the forum 3-4 months ago i don't know about what was 3 years ago. And tbh i find the current to be fine. But that's my opinion so it really doesnt matter

I read the spoilers. By the time an English translation will be available I willl forget everything or almost everything I read in the spoilers.

In fact I think that perhaps we should not use a Spoiler BBCode at all, because from what I noticed always the same people comment the chapter before it is available in English and after it is, therefore it doesn't look that the Spoiler BBCode is even needed and/or useful. Lurkers can always lurk some other topics.

I think that most of the people who visit the story discussion thread are the ones who don't want to wait for the chapter to be released in English and also the thread is named by the chapter's number so for myself I didn't find a meaning for the usage of the spoiler box in a thread it's title obviously shows that it's a spoiler specially that english translations isn't uploaded here anymore , however I joined not long after english translations has stopped in the forum and I was able to understand the previous system when I read some older threads , it's just my own opinion though keeping the same system or using spoiler box isn't that issue

Well, it looks like the verdict is in.

Spoiler:
My fanfic account:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland.
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

So far there's no real verdict, only a statistic. If there's any change in the way we do things here, we'll let you know that if or when we decide to change them.
