As most of you all should know for us Aussie hobbit fanatics we have to wait 2 weeks longer then you guys and girls to view the hobbit, I'd like to ask if there will be any certain control measures from admin ? I know everyone is extremely excited as am I, will I just have to avoid torn for 2 weeks till the movie comes out here in aus ?

I imagine [In reply to] Can't Post

all will be fair game and it's up to individuals who haven't seen the film to avoid the boards (the hobbit board, at least).

Of course, I'm not an admin, so I can't say anything with authority, but that would be my guess.

There will be an announcement tomorrow [In reply to] Can't Post

But, basically, the best thing for anyone who really, *really* wants to avoid spoilers from tomorrow (Monday) to when you see the movie, is to avoid the Hobbit board altogether.

Tomorrow, the review embargo will be lifted and spoilers will start appearing all over the internet, and will be discussed on the Hobbit board. We can try to keep mega-spoilers out of subject lines until Dec-12 when it opens to the public but, realistically, they'll still slip through and, after 12/12, we'll probably stop trying to edit spoilers out of subject lines altogether.

Hope that helps Smile

One more day [In reply to] Can't Post

of good speculation then, eh? Well it's been fun and I'll look forward to doing it again for DOS after I've seen the film. Smile

what I would do is fly over to NZ and see it there, while also visiting Matamata ;D [In reply to] Can't Post
