New Spoiler Tag
« on: November 15, 2008, 04:25:37 PM »
I just added a new feature... the spoiler tag!

If you surround text with [spoiler] OMG, Vader is Luke's father! [/spoiler], it will appear in your post as this:

[spoiler] OMG, Vader is Luke's father! [/spoiler]

Cool, eh? It's something I've been meaning to add, but didn't get to it till now. I'm going to be fiddling with it for a bit to make it look all pretty, but if you're wondering what the new "Sp" button on the post screen is... well, there you have it!

Please note that you don't need to post things behind spoiler tags if you're in a thread with "SPOILER" in the title. But in other threads, here's a way to do it instead of making the text black or leaving space or whatever people have been doing up to this point. :)

Sweet, the forums at gametoast have those and they're really helpful if you want to hide spoilers or large pictures.

Absolute NOT. Threads that are going to have spoilers should still be marked as having spoiler in them.

Yes, indeed. This is if you want to include spoilers in threads that aren't specifically dedicated to discussing those spoilers.

If you want to discuss the latest book, for example, in all its gory detail, you just put *SPOILERS* in the thread title and then you can discuss as you please within - and you don't need to hide the spoilers - because people were adequately warned.

In case anyone was wondering...

[spoiler]A spoiler is an automotive aerodynamic device whose intended design function is to 'spoil' unfavorable air movement across a body of a vehicle in motion. Spoilers are often fitted to race and high-performance sports cars, although they have become common on passenger vehicles, as well. Some spoilers are added to cars primarily for styling purposes and have either little aerodynamic benefit or even make the aerodynamics worse.

Spoilers for automobiles are often incorrectly confused with, or even used interchangeably with, wings. Automotive wings are devices whose intended design is to generate downforce as air passes around them, not simply disrupt existing airflow patterns.

A spoiler is also a summary or description of a narrative (or part of a narrative) that relates plot elements not revealed early in the narrative itself. Moreover, because enjoyment of a narrative sometimes depends upon the dramatic tension and suspense which undergird it, this early revelation of plot elements can "spoil" the enjoyment that some consumers of the narrative would otherwise have experienced.

Hey, I just checked your post Amy. No one here knew there was a  [nobbc] [/nobbc] code. Now we can explain how to post images easier. Did you just find out about that while reading up on the spoiler codes?

It deactivates the BBC codes with in the tags.

Haha. Yeah, kinda. I went to post about how to do the spoiler thing, then realised I didn't know how to use the [ and ] so it wouldn't parse them. But I knew there was probably a way, so I searched the SMF forums for a bit and found that. :) It's a useful thing to know.

Now see if you can do something a bout that "KAD" guy. Between his quotes and his commas in his username (which shouldn't even be allowed in registration) no one can send him PM's and I shudder to think what other effects might come from that.

Wait! Really!?! Masterchief is Talon? I had no idea!

How come whenever someone gets a name change, I always get confused and think its some other person. And it's like, JUST ME, everybody else seems to know what's going on. Like when Jangotat switched to Obi-1, which switched to Darth Obi-1. Everytime I was like WTF, whos this new guy? And then Akula switched to Mark.

Am I the only person who's kept their original name since the minute I joined?! Although I am conisdering switching H_BOMB to H-BOMB. Not much of a life-altering change though.

I still haven't used the spoiler tag yet though.
