In preparation for the updated FINAL Preview in about a week, and eventual news about FINAL, that subforum's been unlocked and already created threads have been moved there.

Please take/bump any FINAL related discussion into that subforum from now on! Thanks!

Isn't it a bit too early for this? Shouldn't you guys wait until the supposedly new footage from the preview has actually been released? What if we get nothing but an updated version of the eva 02+08 fight from the end of 3.0?

It's going to happen eventually... why not now?

Also it means we can kick all the wild speculation threads into the 'safe room' and let meaningful analysis rule the main forum for a while.

An update even of just footage is still an update.

We're segregating things off into a new subforum earlier than later so:

    1) It can be second-nature by the time big spoilers roll out.
    2) Keep discussion nice and tidy.

To avoid the risk of a potentially misleading/confusing/misinformation-causing preview wrecking speculation havoc in the rebuild forum, the preview was suggested (I admit by myself) as an appropriate watershed for the creation of the Final subforum.

With any luck, the preview won't be misleading and will in fact be a reasonably accurate representation of the final film. However this in itself is a good reason to filter out the Preview from spoiler free 1.0-3.0 discussions now. As SSD mentioned, another reason is to try and keep the Final subforum more organised from an earlier date.

People should feel free to give their own opinions on this however. I for one would be interested in hearing some pro and con opinions on the Final Spoiler policy. Hopefully this early split can let us work out most of the speedbumps early on.

Thank you very much SSD.

My personal spoiler policy has usually been: If it's in a preview or trailer then they want you to see it, so it's not a spoiler.


Sure this isn't perfect logic, especially in the west given how Hollywood tends to give the whole damn movie away in a trailer sometimes, but I'm sure khara's promotional campaign will be very well crafted.

TM: Though remember, there are usually spoiler trailers (e.g. for 3.0) after the films hit theaters.

Silver lining to this cluster bomb of disappointment?
