How about spoiler tags?
« on: May 24, 2007, 11:06 PM »
My last request, which was for embedded videos, went so smashingly that I figured I'd take a shot and ask for something else while I've got the hot hand.

Spoiler tags.

I've seen these on other boards.  On some boards, they'll work as big black blocks that you have to highlight in order to read the text underneath.  Other boards have them as little spoiler buttons that you have to click in order to get the text to pop-up. 

Both versions would be preferable to the ways we have to try and hide spoilers around here--which has led to some rather unfortunate incidents over the last few weeks.

So anyway, I just thought I'd see if there was any way that the board software would allow some of these  tags to be implemented.

Love,

Matt

No, I would never type something in a non-standard color.  It would be obnoxious.

No problem.  Thanks for the timely response, Philip.

Sorry, didn't catch this one until just now. Less than a week though, eh? ::)

I'll bring this up with the people who make the software though, how's that?

Nah, it's not that big a deal.
