Spoiler tags?

Forum for all the suggestions that have 1. nothing to do with our two websites (Dosgames.com/ DosGamesArchive) and 2. are not bug reports.

Spoiler tags?

Post by Gamer_V » Tue Sep 30, 2008 12:42 pm

[spoiler][/spoiler]

We could use some spoiler tags. For the unknowing, anything between the tags becomes invisible, and can become either visible by scrolling over the text or clicking on a + to open the box. The latter form is preferable, so big pictures can go in a spoiler and dosraider won't get all stressed and go bold. Even the former is good for movie/book spoilers. It's a pretty standard tag nowadays ... so, all for? :D

I'll go berserk anyway, it's my favorite mental condition.

BTW, you can always use such thing ya n00b.
Or even >....This thingy...< ya ignorant poster.
About the pics, there are thumbs: use them, or resize to smaller ones, or post them huge pics on fok.nl, they love those idiotic things over there.That's because all those Dutch have a small penis, they have to compensate.
Or create your own forum where you can post all you want.
And pay yourself for your needless excessive bandwith use.
Period.

That said, spoiler tags are common on vBulletin boards, I think you need a mod on phpBB.
And we all know by now how handy our <strike>damned</strike> beloved admin is when it comes to implement new stuff.

All by all, not a bad idea.

He's getting somekind of a brain our Gamer_V, let's kill him.

Or you could do this:


[size=0]So, all Dutch people share one penis? Even women? :O[/size]

Hmmmmm, In fact not Larry.
See that's the whole idea behind those spoiler tags, you spoil all for others, so they must know there is something, you lose that effect when zero'ing your text.

And of course the next question will be to add 'off-topic' tags. So you can have threads filled with spoiler buttons allover the place, and 100 posts in a row with 'off-topic' tags.

I so dislike the spoilers...they ruin good movies!
:laugh:

Oh wait, your talking about a forum tag...
IMO, I think they sound a like bad idea, like they have advantages but I also think people will misuse them on constant basis!

Don't 'think' that, it's a 'fact', they are constantly used and abused where they are available.
