    It was not a suggestion. It was a warning.

    A thread consisting a mere title, description, cover and raw links has mostly nothing in it but +1 and the likes, these are considered spam. If you want to raise awareness for an untranslated novel, make a Novel Pickup Request and hype it up. Don't clutter the Spoiler subforum with these threads and drown the ones that are already translated.

    This is a reminder and a warning. It is not a suggestion.

    wth which spoiler will be for which novel? y these r all merged together ?
    its impossible to tl all the novel for the translator so does that mean we don't have the right to know the spoiler if its not translated ?
    some kind people just read some chapters n give us spoilers they don't have the time to tl the whole thing n we are happy that way.

    should have removed the threads(if it did not follow the rules) or moved this to pickup request thread instead of merging multiple threads into one.
    Its weird following multiple novels for spoilers where you dont know where to navigate to because you have no idea what spoiler of what novel you are getting.

    Isn’t the point of the spoiler forum to asks for SPOILERS but ur saying it’s exclusively for translated novels only? But as Hera Elizabeth said, it’s impossible for the translators to TL all of the novels & they don’t have all the time so instead we make the threads for the chance of someone who has read it come upon it and gives us spoilers/details about the novel if they want to. And for the matter of fact, the spoiler forum and all forums in general is cluttered consisting of 7k++ threads. Everything gets buried. Especially these kinds of threads. Unless it’s a REALLY GOOD novel with A+ FL & ML & A+ story, not much ppl are interested in it so how likely would a translator pick it up? It’s a long time so until then we can’t get spoilers?:blobconfused:

    This just goes to show “someone” is abusing their powers. First make a rules thread, then come to give out “warnings”

    There’s ALOT of spoiler threads for untranslated novels, r u gonna compile them all here then??? If organization & clutter is the issue then there should be separate forums: One for translated novel spoiler forum and one for untranslated novels spoiler forum. That would make things easier. Heck, there’s also spoiler threads for untranslated manhuas/manhwa without novels:blobunsure:

    exactly
    lets just say there r 500/1k novel spoiler threads n they don't have any tl n u have decided to complie them all in here it will be really useless as for each novel spoiler there will be like at least 1 page each. so this whole thread will be like 500+ pages n based on how the things r we can't even find out which spoiler 1 for which 1. it has turned into a complete hotchpotch. there were so many spoiler threads which were made previously n those were not added . it seems like u picked targeted some of the acc n added those here

    The issue isn't really spoiler threads for untranslated novels, I think, it's number and spam. We'll discuss it.

    Okay, so the issue we seem to be having here is that too many threads are being made that are essentially just titles and cover art copied over from raw sites. I get that you guys are interested in these novels, but you can't make empty threads in large numbers. It's spam. Please be more judicious in creating them.

    We did briefly discuss other possibilities. I liked the idea of creating a sort of catalogue thread for unknown raw novels people could look through, but, well, no one else did. :sweating_profusely: So, for now we're just going to keep things working as they are. You can make threads for untranslated novels, but do not spam them.

    The threads that were merged into this one won't be restored; make new ones as necessary. Judiciously.

    (Feel free to unofficially adopt my suggestion somewhere else. Novel General, maybe. Or figure out your own solution.)

    FYI, this is not the first time this happened.

    previously another use did spam create spoiler thread too, you might find them if you dig long enough. Most of them are dead with little or no reply. The user got heavier warning than you and somehow still managed to respond better. For one, as mods we never warn or delete if the amount of thread created are not too obvious.

    Create a thread if you want to ask for spoiler or share some by yourself, but never just for the sake of creating a thread.
