|This page documents an official Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki policy.|
|It is a widely accepted standard that should normally be followed by all editors.|
A spoiler is a piece of information that reveals any plot elements which threaten to give away important details concerning the turn of events of a story. Typically, the details of the conclusion of the plot, including the climax and ending, are especially regarded as spoiler material. It can also be used to refer to any piece of information regarding any part of a given media that a potential consumer would not want to know beforehand. Since enjoyment of fiction depends a great deal upon the suspense of revealing plot details through standard narrative progression, the prior revelation of how things will turn out can "spoil" the enjoyment that some consumers of the narrative would otherwise have experienced.
Spoilers are permitted on Kingkiller Chronicle Wiki after the book or other material in question is released officially in at least one country. Expect to see spoilers if you haven't read the latest book, or if it has not been released in your country.
