    My notice about not adding spoilers from leaks in the Sonic Forces article was removed because of "not understanding the purpose of this wiki's existence". So this is allowed? That'll ruin the excitement for Sonic Forces' release and it's not fair to Sega! (And what's the purpose of the wiki's existence?) Reply

      Pretty sure you're in the right and whatever kiddo removed it is in the wrong.

      Which kiddo was that, by the way?

      A page lock might be in order since the entire game leaked.

      Snakebane was the user who removed the spoiler stuff and made that message. Caschero did put up a "there are leaked spoilers beyond this line" message. Issue is, we can't have leaked spoilers. Only officially released content is allowed on there, whether it's from a preview or the final copy. Or both in tons of cases, obviously. Spoilers should exist, for obvious reasons, but not if they're from leaks.

      "The purpose of the wiki's existence" is not to post unofficial material from/about a work, which unofficial leaks count as. I think the notice can be put back, and the leaked spoilers line removed.

      A lock until official release sounds like a good idea.

      I'm old enough to remember when "leaked spoiler" was redundant.

      Leaks are not allowed at all. If someone wants to trope leaks, they can put them in a rough draft. That's what the Steven Universe tropers do.

      Snakebane deleted the notice again with the edit reason of "Totally missing the point of the wiki"

      That puts this in edit war territory then.

      Now we wait.

      Suspending Snakebane. Please reinstate the notice.
