Community Admin - How Should We Handle Discussion Posts?

In anticipation of this Saturday I wanted to ask you guys to see what your preferences are for live discussion posts. My suggestion is below, but I want your ideas and feedback too!

Post #1 - Live at 8p ET, for those who are able to watch live via live stream (I don't think one exists but we can hold out hope!) and Starz. Book spoilers should be under a cut in comments.

Post #2 - Live at 8p ET, for those waiting for streaming links that usually pop up at 10:00p ET. We'll post those links in this post asap, and plan for live discussion to start at 10:15p ET. Book spoilers should be under a cut in comments.

Post #3 - Live at 11p ET, post-episode discussion & promo discussion. Book spoilers allowed without a cut in comments. This is so people can speculate freely without without worrying about accidentally spoiling people.

Post #4 - Live at 11p ET, post-episode discussion & promo discussion. Book spoilers should be under a cut in comments.

Another option would be to combine Posts #1 and #2, and then have a duplicate version of that post where book spoilers are allowed so people can discuss those as the episode is airing.

Or, we can do what we did last week (#1 and #2 combined plus #4, for a total of two posts) and have book spoilers need to be under a cut no matter what.

*Phew* - kind of confusing but I want to make sure everyone has a good experience without fragmenting us too much, especially for this episode ;).

What are your thoughts? Is it more important to you to freely talk about book spoilers & speculate in the live discussion, or post discussion posts? Neither? Both?

The current plan is to have one live discussion post that will be shared by those who watch live at 9ET and then the people who watch after links are available. Post episode discussion will have one post as well, but we'll do a book FFA/speculation post on Sunday. I'm also super happy to revisit this come Season 1 Part 2 depending on how people feel.
