New post type - "Should I watch this?"/Spoiler-free "Reviews of"
I'm noticing something interesting which is that a lot of the first few posts in a thread tend to be something like "This is a spoiler-free description of whether or not this thing is worth watching"; People will go into a thread about a thing they've never watched to get a sense of whether or not the thing is worth watching and find spoiler-free reviews there written by other people who also do the same thing. I think this is an interesting observation & maybe something we want to support officially, because spoilers should be frankly assumed in general. [more inside]
Discussing titles of forthcoming episodes?
It is considered a spoiler to discuss the title of a forthcoming but as yet unshown episode of a show?

"Whole season discussion" spoiler condition flag
Idea for handling the emerging "Bingers Dilemma". So when a new season of OITNB or House of Cards or what have you is released, you could have your episode threads as usual plus another thread for those who want to discuss the season as a whole. That everyone can discuss the show at their own pace - - bingers can discuss right away without having to wait or flood FanFare with episode posts just to get to the end - savorers can add episode threads organically as people are ready for them without having to wade through the bingers' flood. Episode threads would retain spoiler-free policy of course.
