    I think something needs to be done with the "movie" tag that's put on frontpage articles. The whole point of the "no movie news" version of the frontpage was to hide spoilers. News about ROTF toys isn't spoilers, news about TF3 is. Right now, I'm not seeing news about new toy releases because they're being tagged as movie news and even non-movie related articles are too (like PCC wave 3). There needs to specifically be a TF3 tag that gets filtered from the front page for those of us that use the nomovie version, not all movie items please!:bowdown:

    They aren't tags, they are the category the news item is listed under. They all fall under Transformers movie news. The "No Movie News" page is a custom built search that excludes news for the Transformers Movie Category, which includes both sub-categories (Movie News and Movie Toys News).

    With Power Core Combiners coming in movie packaging, they fall under movie toy news. If you want to view the movie toys category, simply visit the movie toys news page.

    Oh, I was always under the impression that the No Movie News was intended just to hide movie spoilers. Is there a way to filter just the movie news and not the movie toys news?

    The problem there would be the coverage of upcoming movie toys that other fans would consider a spoiler of their experience. Images of toys, names of characters that will appear, even the bios on the boxes could all reveal plot points unintentionally.

    The box images of Leader class Jetfire might be one example of something fans would consider a spoiler of ROTF. If you didn't want to know Jetfire and Prime's ability until seeing the film, you wouldn't have wanted to see those photos on the back of the box.
