    Can you not post any race results, such as the MotoGP and the like, on places like Facebook and Twitter.

    I usually work on weekends, and tend to miss the action live, I then watch it later either on TV or by downloads. In the mean time, I use Facebook and everything else. It took the edge off watching the MotoGP on Sunday when I read on Facebook who the winner was, before I watched it.

    I could unsubscribe from FB and Twitter...but then no-one wants people to leave their groups, so just a kind request to refrain from posting race results please.

    :)

    Maybe just not go on Facebook until you have watched MotoGP? What I do with F1 on Sundays

    Also want to note a similar thing on the front page, WRC results were out on Sunday nights, I usually watch it on Monday or Tuesday, kind of spoils it for me, if there was a section that wasn't on the main homepage where it said "Motorsport Results" where people who don't want results spoilt will stray away from. I know that you can just say "Don't go on a Motorsport Forum not wanting to find out results" but I have never found out any results on RD before until recently - just a thought, not being critical of RD or the person who wrote it, just putting an idea across that could hopefully improve this.

    +1 :good:

    Sure, the German rally wasn't that much of a spoiler really, but still :)

    I usually watch it when I find the time, might be a week from now, maybe more. That's a long time to not visit the forum :D
    The simplest solution might be not to post any names in titles?


    EDIT: 6 days after this post, I finished watching the Rally Deutschland coverage :rally: :D
