Spoiler Tags!
« on: April 06, 2007, 02:55:11 PM »
We now have a spoiler tag; use it whenever you're posting something with a small amount of spoiler content on a non-spoiler board, or if you're posting an "off-topic spoiler" for a particular spoiler board (for example, if you talk book spoilers on the TV show spoiler board, the book stuff should be inside a spoiler tag).

Spoiler tags when used properly will look like this:

(click to show/hide)

It may also be a good idea to state what the spoiler is from, so the audience knows whether they can proceed or not.

To activate the code, use the radiation symbol in the posting toolbar, or use the tags SPOILER & /SPOILER inside square brackets [].

Please make sure to "preview" your posts and make sure that the spoiler tag is working correctly. 
It breaks down to this:
ON-TOPIC SPOILERS ON A SPOILER BOARD: Do not need the tag.

OFF-TOPIC SPOILERS ON A SPOILER BOARD (e.g., book spoilers in a TV spoiler forum): Need the tag.

Don't know if its just me, but your spoiler tagged text isn't being "blacked out". Using IE at work right now.

Here, let me try.

Nope, not working for me either. I get the "Spoiler (Highlight with your mouse to read)" but it doesn't actually do the blocking.

EDIT: Never mind, I didn't see the thread in the other forum when I posted this.

You, sir, are a god.  Thank you!

That's Gabriel's HORN, or Torricelli's trumpet. I'm sort of the opposite effect, but crossed with a Mobius Strip.

Ah, understood.  I'm more of a Klein bottle, myself.
