That page gives away the ending to a relatively new Star Wars game. Just because it's a year old doesn't mean we shouldn't warn the reader about the ending of their game! Think about it: the first place I would go when I get a new game is it's page on Wookieepedia. I then would have no idea about how it gives away a surprise ending and read the final paragraph. It even tells WHERE he's captured! Please respond with a vote:

Give It a Spoiler WarningEdit

The game is a year old, yes, but it's not something everyone sees. I go to Wookieepedia, I don't own all the games. I don't want to know the end before I even get the game. --DarthCow--Talk|Email Delta oh-seven

It would simply make sense for an article which dispenses plot sensitive information to contain a spoiler warning. Mordecai 21:35, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

There should be a spoiler warning.

  • No, because if we gave Sev's article a spoiler warning, every article would end up with a spoiler warning or two. Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 20:22, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Yes, I don't think it really matters. We have a warning on the main page. If people ignore it, and then get angry because they had their game spoilt, it's not really our fault.Skywalka 23:37, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

  12. As I have said a million times when I reverted the addition of the spoiler warning, the game is a year old. There is absolutely no need for a spoiler warning. Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 01:44, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

  14. What next, a spoiler warning for the Anakin Skywalker page? "He turns into Darth Vader?!?" Cutch 02:54, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
  15. No, the basic spoiler warning on the main page covers this. Fnlayson 03:04, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
  16. We already have a spoiler warning on the front page. -- I need a name (Complain here) 23:18, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

  • It's a year old. Anyone who goes to the article for something that old has to expect there's going to be plot details. -LtNOWIS 04:20, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
  • I am positive that we already have an established spoiler warning policy. Kuralyov 04:33, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
  • The whole Wookieepedia is a spoiler, anyway. I do think venturing into any page contain some sort of spoilers, one way or another. Darth Kevinmhk 05:39, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
  • 1) The wiki has a blanket spoiler warning on the main page. 2) Why would someone go reading up on a game's plot and characters if they didn't want to read any spoilers? SM-716 05:44, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
    • They wouldn't know that specific character would die! Consider this: the spoiler warning template is for things just like this. It ruins the ending. How are you supposed to know that character dies? You look at his page not knowing that. You then read that. Unless, you see the thing we call spoiler warning. --DarthCow--Talk|Email

Sev DIES?!? Aaauugh!!! Why would you tell me that? Thanks for ruining the game for me....

  • Our policy is that things get a spoiler for, I believe, a month after they come out in all countries. After that time, all spoilers are removed. Going by your theory, we should have spoiler warnings on Chewbacca, Anakin Solo, etc. as well. Basically, we'd end up putting spoiler warnings on every single game avaliable. If you do not wish to know what happens to a character, you do not read their page. Simple as that. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 06:54, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Other CommentsEdit

  • Hopefully this will clear up whether or not we will have that warning. If we do: GOOD. If we don't: Oh well. --DarthCow--Talk|Email

  • OK, people. If anyone can get a thousand points on this game I will back off. That, or I'm outnumbered 10 to 1. LOL. You'll never get those thousand points, by the way. If you by chance (No, you won't.) do get those points, press the PrintScreen button. Paste it onto paint, and save it as PNG. Upload it on Wookieepedia (Uncyclopedia, Etc.) and show it to me. Muahaha! It's nearly impossible!!! Muahahahahhahahhaha!!!!! --DarthCow-- Talk|Email

  • Done. Now you have to back off. You really ought not to have said that. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 12:49, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
  • During the runup to the release of The Hidden Enemy part 3, I specifically avoided the Quinlan Vos page (and related pages) because I knew spoilers would be added as soon as the info became available. If you don't want to risk being spoiled, obviously don't visit pages that are likely to contain spoiler information - Kwenn 12:31, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Oh come on Jaymach, you really play that game to make Cow back off? Unbelieveable! Had fun? Darth Kevinmhk 13:21, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!! You're good at that game. OK, I'll stop now. My max score was like 800! Wow. --DarthCow--Talk|Email

  • NO!!! That little Imp caught my cursor at 990! 990!!! Mordecai 21:41, 28 April 2006 (UTC)
  • That SUCKS.
  • My best score. --DarthCow--Talk|Email

The name is Delta oh-seven I have put a spoiler warning on the page,that is all.

  • And Delta07, it was removed. Because our vote showed that it should not have a spoiler warning. So do not place it there again. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Audience Chamber) 06:29, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Why is this not simply closed?Edit

See above. Ancient vote, clear consensus (one of the votes for seems to be a sockpuppet, leaving us 2-on-11 before people even started voting again. No yes-votes since it was resurrected. Let's end this quickly. Havac 05:32, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
