Spoiler warning removal pending 4.0 spoilers

Hi there, folks. Many of you have probably noticed the great big red "SPOILER WARNING" template on most of the Rebuild pages and sections. Now that the events of 3.0 are common knowledge to everyone here, the spoiler warnings have no purpose at all - in fact, they've been an eyesore for months now.

Just to let you know, I'll be cleaning those out in a few days, but I wanted to let you guys know about it in advance, in case there's anyone out there still senstive about spoilers. If you think there's a valid reason for not removing those warnings, post in this thread. Thanks!

I've been indiscriminately moving these off after the official spoiler ban was lifted back in '13 (with appropriate permissions and talk posts, of course.) I don't see a reason to leave them around, personally. If it's okay with the staff, I'll just run through and do a complete clean sweep.

All spoiler tags wiped from the wiki, except the ones on the es: pages. (The spanish-language ones.) I think I need extra permissions to edit those, or somebody higher-ranking could take care of them.

Good job, soldier. You'll get a medal for this!

Got rid of the Spanish-language spoiler warnings too. There were just two of them, and those spanish-language pages haven't been touched for months.

The page on Beast Mode actually had a spoiler tag from when 2.22 came out. Nobody had bothered to remove it. :lol:

I was pretending to be Colonel Kuma, natch. My responses would've been pretty boring otherwise.

Pages like "Beast Mode" were pretty close to frozen in time, which is why their spoiler labels had remained for years. Whenever we get to 4.0, the wiki is going to follow the same spoiler warning duration as the forum.
