But it's a good catch, as if my post were one up or down the chain it still wouldn't work. So, you'd have to use two colors to get the proper effect, and it wouldn't work as intended if someone had different settings. IOW not much of a solution.

Ah well. At least the sblock works effectively.

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

If Ornette could pull it, my preference would be for:

1) Making the current "spoiler" tags into "hide". (Very misleading as it is right now.)
2) Adding a new "spoiler" fixture like what tvtropes et al. have.

I'm behind that, could it happen. It doesn't seem too difficult, right?

This would probably work best. As we all know, spoiler tags have been multitasking a lot in this forum.

That'd be good and all, but...
View Original PostOrnette wrote:That system only works with in-line spoilers (and you can do that now anyways, people have in the past, by simply using the [color] tag). It doesn't work for images, or, if someone is posting a large spoiler filled review, you wouldn't want to scroll through a page of blank nothing if you wanted to skip it.

Personally, I think it's fine as it is, but I wouldn't be opposed to having two different tabs either. I don't have a really strong opinion on it one way or another though; just pointing out why the TVTropes style wouldn't work here.

There's another way to do this now - just hide the text like this. Click on it to reveal the text.
