Due to the fact that not everyone can keep up with videogames/games/movies because of their work/schedule/whatever there is an ongoing problem of "spoiling" game twists/plot twists...
Someone has just requested that we put a sticky on this section to let everyone know how to start putting spoiler tags on their posts so here it is:

Code:
[quote="Spoiler"][color=transparent]RUTABAGA![/color][/quote]

Spoiler wrote:
RUTABAGA!


You need to take out the [code] tags and it will look just like the one below.
It can be read by selecting the text with your mouse(same way you would copy a paragraph or something)

We encourage everyone to start doing this if you can to avoid issues in the particular subforums

I'll start using this now, but it'd be nicer if a [spoiler] was implemented, really.

The problem with the OP's directions is that one can SEE the spoiler, without even highlighting it. I found THIS coding to be much MORE advantageous:

[quote=*"spoiler"][color=*#F8F8FF]*[/color][/quote]

Which gives you, THIS:

spoiler wrote:
Elvis has left the building.


Just be sure to remove the asterisks----OR, you don't even need the quote box, as evidenced in tb86's post----just put THIS, in your post:

[color=*transparent]*[/color]

Which will give you THIS ----> Elvis has left the building.

Again, don't forget to remove the asterisks!

I just do something like:

-----BEGIN SPOILER FOR ________________------------

This contains ____________ spoilers if you have not watched the entire show/movie do not scroll down.





______ dies and then _________'s girlfriend kills herself by jumping of a bridge.


------- END SPOILERS FOR ______________-----------


...
