Hi everyone. I'm not sure I'm doing this right but here goes:

It might be a good idea to remove some articles from consideration as featured articles. Obviously, people who browse this site ought to know that there will be tons of series spoilers here, but there are a few major spoilers that might be best kept in their own articles. The one I'm thinking of now is Ezri Dax being our featured article right now - I remember accidentally finding out that she even existed waaaaay before...

  • spoilers!*

I watched the episode where Jadzia Dax died. Again, some minor spoilers like Sisko getting a girlfriend or Odo having a romantic interlude with that one secret agent lady aren't a big deal, but big ones like the Dax one may be best left to whoever happens to look at those specific characters' articles.

See Memory Alpha:Spoiler policy. --OuroborosCobra talk 05:50, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
The episode in which Jadzia died first aired more than nine years ago. I think that's enough time to get spoiled pretty much everywhere else before getting spoiled here... ;)
So, I think that spoiler information will always appear in the featured articles themselves. However, it might be a good suggestion to try to avoid spoilers in the main page blurb of an FA, and perhaps delay featuring articles on the main page for at least a week or two if they contain "new" spoilers. -- Cid Highwind 15:23, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
