hi can I rant for a second?
ok HTTYD fandom, I love you guys, but I had to stop going on tumblr for a while because people keep posting spoilers and NOT TAGGING THEM, I know I’ve said this a bunch of times but I don’t want to see them!! I’d like to have at least…
thank you for telling us. I usually try but I’m always afraid I forget!
okay, fair enough, but it’s really hard for me because some people want me to tag everything as a spoiler, and some people get really annoyed because we tag things that they don’t consider spoilers, and the people who don’t mind spoilers kind of get caught in the middle. if there is a solid definition of a spoiler, or different kinds of spoilers, it would make things a lot easier on us.
I think the definition of “spoiler” varies from person to person, but I would say a spoiler would be anything like… a clip from the movie or important plot points, stuff like that, you know? Trailers probably wouldn’t be considered spoilers because avoiding those is almost impossible.
But when people found out about Hiccup’s mom, even though everyone knows about it now, it was like… a MAJOR spoiler, and everyone just kinda went crazy reblogging stuff and they were rarely tagged as spoilers, so I kinda saw every photo and detail and headcanon people were posting.
I would say gifs of clips from the movie, leaked photos, and any sort of plot information that wasn’t officially released or that reveals a BIG part of the story not already in general plot descriptions would be a spoiler.
and why would people get mad if you tagged stuff “spoilers” even if it wasn’t considered a spoiler? :<
thank you for reading this!!!
