On Characters.DCEU Philadelphia, can someone please move all info, credits, and pictures of the foster siblings' alter egos to a separate folder titled, "Spoiler Characters", or something like that? I don't know if I have time to do so myself.

[up] Is "Spoiler Characters", plural, even allowed?

Misspelled trope names dealt with... for now. Moving back to the Understatement project soon?

I don't think it's allowed.

I don't think there's any Administrivia page explicitly forbidding it, but maybe there should be. It's OK to have a header indicating that all spoilers in the folders below are unmarked, though.

Characters.The LEGO Movie has a folder that needs either renaming or splitting, then.

[up][up][up][up] It's not against the letter of the rules, but it's clearly against the spirit.

It is actually quite literally against the rules.

If it's a folder for multiple characters, it wouldn't conceal anyone's name, so it's not banned.

Still, that's stupid and any such folders should be renamed on sight.

That sounds more like a loophole than something allowed, as the policy is to ward off self-fulfilling spoilers, not just prevent people from concealing things. "Spoiler Characters" is just as self-fulfilling as "Spoiler Character", even if it isn't explicitly disallowed.

As I've said many times in many threads, it's a technicality.

I renamed the folder myself; since the scene where Emmet meets Vitruvius already mentions the Man Upstairs, and shows his hand, I hope this name doesn't reveal too much.

In other news, YMMV.Carmen Sandiego doesn't warn readers which spoilers apply to which season; it resulted it me accidentally clicking an S2 spoiler before I finished that season.

[up] In any case, because we have franchise/work subpage collision, shouldn't the animated show be disambiguated?

It should probably be split and disambig'd.

Characters.The Rising Of The Shield Hero inconsistently handles the spoiler that King Aultcray and Princess Malty are renamed "Trash" and "Bitch" respectively. They're spoiler-tagged in some examples but not others; I removed them from the folder titles.

ComicBook.Mysterio spoiler-tagged almost all of the Spider-Man: Far From Home plot points above the line.

The character and main pages for Meme House have so many contradictory spoiler tags that I'm seriously considering stripping out all the spoiler tags and declaring it Spoilers Off. The only things that I feel should be tagged with spoilers is a certain event in part 7.

I'm illiterate. Super Man 64 has a better story than Persona 5.

Berserk: Antagonists also has "Spoiler Character" as a folder title. Should the character's name be uncensored there too?

[up]It definitely can't say "Spoiler Character." Maybe change the title of the folder to "Leader of the Godhand" or something like that?
