Spoilers...

Unread postby Shrink908 » Sat Apr 19, 2008 5:26 pm

Ever have a topic you want to read that contains spoilers that you >don't< want to read? Well now the poster can hide their spoilers with the Spoiler tag.. Just click the tag and type what you want to hide inside the tags.
Spoiler:
>Place Spoiler Here<


Simple as that..

Coolies. Awesome feature. Is there any way for users to modify what the button says, or is that coded?
I figured it was time to change this, but...there's really nothing to change it to.

Bad stuff happens!


I meant more in terms of the button itself--if we could get the bold text to say something else instead of "spoiler" or the button to something other than "show"? Looks like it's hard-coded though.

That's actually a cool tag.

Now of course, it's still up to the poster to acually use the tag, because what one considers a spoiler, the other considers to be common knowledge.

Will the board start enforcing a "spoiler delay"? Like everybody knows that Vader is Luke's father. A half year after the season's finale, everybody is expected to know that Ron kills Warhok but we still expect the decency to use the spoiler tag to mention that Zuko
Spoiler:
fights his father and becomes Aang's fire-bending tutor.
Nearly everything is available on the internet.

That's beyond the scope of my part of the administering..

"Enforcing?" No. But feel free to swear up holy hell if someone dumps a major S-bomb on you, 'k? ;) :P :D

I love this feature. I usually use this feature when I wanna post artworks in my art thread to avoid waiting so many pictures loading at once (for slow connection users).
