Default Spoiler Tags

I've seen these in other forums, essentially you just type the [SPOILER]something[/SPOILER] and it will hide your information behind a button that says "Spoiler". It's great for discussing things like books, movies, video games, etc. You have to click on the button and the information will pop down. It's also a good way if you're going to post a lot of information, it means less information has to show up on the screen at any given time. I'm not sure how easy or hard they are to program, but it's just a thought.

Great Input man! I would love to see a function like that.

again, not just for spoilers, but for example let's say you post up a video, if you wrap the spoiler tags around it, the page would load up faster.

I personally add spolier headings if i'm explaining a film other than in a review thread. I have also asked for other members in the past to do this as (especially with films) it would get you a swift kick up the arse in the real world. It didn't seem to work though

I think we should have spoiler tags

I'd like to see us have strikeout tags too
