Gearspedia's Spoilers Policy is as follows:
- The Spoiler Policy only dictates the inclusion of Campaign Plot information, not Multiplayer.
- Spoilers, in conjunction with Gearspedia's Spoilers template, will only be allowed up until one week (that's seven days) before an upcoming product is released. This will ensure that active editors who don't want to be spoiled can know when to back off from spoiler-filled articles, and for people who want to know about the game's story, can read them. While it still will seem like a "blarg blarg your just limiting us you asshole" move, it's to satisfy both parties on this matter.
- No spoiler content whatsoever will be allowed onto Gearspedia until the day of the official launch for a major release (i.e. games, films/shorts, and novels) in North America, Europe, or Australia. However, this will still exclude official information released by Epic Games, and Microsoft Game Studios.
- The reasoning for only spoilers to be allowed from a week until the product's release, is that only the Press and selected gamers (by contest, fandom, rewards, etc.) get the game early. The only other people who receive it early are from store employees who sell the game earlier than expected, and those users usually get banned if they're caught on Xbox LIVE (if the product is a game).
- Information officially released by Epic Games, and or other Gears of War developers, and news publications before the release date will still be accepted.
Violators will be given one official warning on their talk page. If there is noncompliance, the user in question will be banned for a week-long period.
