This policy in a Nutshell
  • Guidelines on when it is appropriate to post spoilers from unreleased books.
  • Explanation of how to properly mark spoilers on articles.

Basic Guidelines

  • The beginning of a character's history (Just below their description, and just above the ==History== header) should be marked with a {{startspoiler}} tag and the end of the character's family section should be marked with an {{endspoiler}} tag. It should be noted that the endspoiler tag occurs before the citations section.
  • A book's plot summary and additional information should be marked with spoiler tags.
    • Cliffnotes pages should have spoiler tags around the start and end of all the chapter sections. Allegiances and Galleries do not need spoiler tags.
    • World articles should have spoiler tags about any parts of them that reveal what happens in a book rather than basic information about a location or feature of the Warriors world. (i.e., you could explain what the Moonstone is before a spoiler tag, but before explaining when someone goes to it in a certain book you would put the tag)
  • Unreleased book articles should not have any plot information added to them until the release.
  • Information from books that have yet to be released should not be added in character history until the release.
EXCEPTION: When the official Browse Inside comes out from HarperCollins or Amazon (NOT an excerpt in the back of another book!), new characters listed there can be given pages and tagged with the {{Unreleased character}} template. However, existing characters that have undergone a name change may not be renamed until the day before the book's release according to the wikiclock.
  • When discussing spoilers from an unreleased book on user talk pages or blogs, users are recommended to mark these comments with bold text spoiler notes; i.e: SPOILER It's revealed in Night Whispers that... SPOILER END.
    • It should be noted this is not a strict rule, but highly encouraged, as a common courtesy for other users who may not have heard said spoilers.

Specific Guidelines

  • Do not add spoilers into character descriptions; list them only in the appropriate History section.
    • These include anything that alters the character's original appearance in the series; i.e: Longtail's blindness. HOWEVER, if a character has a certain defect or injury from birth, such as Jayfeather's blindness, it is not spoiling anything and thus should be included in the description.
