  • A Note on Spoilers

    Okay... I know I'm not the only one who will get pretty pissed if someone tells me how a movie is going to end or about a major plot twist in a book I just started. So I've decided if spoilers are going to be posted, it not be necessairy to state it in the title or anything but to do a little something different, and it's not that hard at all.

    If you want to post a spoiler use the QUOTE feature and make the text inside the quote white... that way the only way to see the spoiler is by highliting the quote box.

    [*quote= This is an example of a spoiler][*color=#ffffff]Then you can write whatever you want in this little space[*/color][*/quote]

    Which will then turn into this if you take out all the * signs:

    Nifty, huh?

      I'd like to take credit... but I just ripped the idea from a game site forum. :P


      However, they made a special little button like the quote button that did all that for you. Rob, think you or Jared can program something similar to work in the forums?

          There's a lot of mods for IPB boards so I wouldn't be surprised if there were one that could be added to this forum.

            only just noticed this, it's fairly easy to do, just add the tags and relevant code into the language php files. i'll try to get to it in the next week or two.

              This doesn't even work anymore.

              Thanks to Cashew for the tag!

              My sig no longer exists.

                  I just created a spoiler custom tag. Use it like this (without the initial space):

                  [ spoiler="Shaving Ryan's Privates"]his pubes are gone[/spoiler]
                  %0|%0

                      Based on his one-line posts, I bet he's planning on setting a spam link in his sig, which no one will click on.


                      Works fine for me.

                        I remember listening to a radio show once where some guy rang in to complain that the DJ spoiled the ending of the movie Titanic by mentioning it sinks...classic!!

                            I've seen what's called spoiler tags on other forums. It means you can cast a shadow over some text and if someone wishes to read it, they can do so by clicking on the shadow or by releasing the tags that hold the 'spoiler' in place. Unfortunately, I think some tags like this get abused. Like some people put in off topic comments with the tags included so people have to click to read what they posted, but it's usually something irrelevant.
