    The spoiler policy for The Promised Land on this forum is as follows:

    Before the broadcast of the special, only elements of it that have been officially released via publicity materials should be discussed openly. You may speculate about what you think is going to happen or the general content of the special, but you may not discuss things that you saw at (or that you have heard about from) the audience filming (and believe me, we'll know if any supposed speculation is actual knowledge dressed up, you learn how to tell about these things!)

    After
    the broadcast of the special, it can be talked about openly in this forum only. You must not discuss the special in any other section of the forum, including Red Dwarf Universe, until further notice.

    In both cases, you must not put spoilery details about the special in the subject line of posts. Post titles must only talk in general/allusive terms about the content within. Examples of non-spoilery thread titles would be:
    • What do you think about the appearance of **SPOILER**?
    • Special effects discussion
    • Rimmer's character in the special
    The first example hides a potentially spoilery reveal by not naming the thing/place/character/whatever being talked about. The second example is talking in general terms about a subject where the specifics will be inside the thread. And the third example is fine because everyone already knows Rimmer is in it!

    Examples of spoilery thread titles would be:
    • Can't believe Chloe Annett appeared!
    • What do you think about Rimmer's father not being his real dad?
    • How will they deal with the fact that Lister's had twins?
    (As you should be able to guess, these all relate to previous episodes, and are not specifically drawn from the upcoming special!)

    If you have any questions or need clarification on the policy, feel free to shout up here.

    Does this mean that Red Dwarf XI and XII can be now discussed in the Red Dwarf Universe section?
