Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I don't know if this has been addressed or not, but I think the addition of the realspoiler tag is a bit of a bandaid fix for the "boy who cried wolf" situation with the spoiler tag. While I don't think it's a bad idea for having a tag for minor spoilers and a bit of playing around and another for big nasty spoilers, i do feel that the same thing will simply happen to the realspoiler tag.
How about it becomes a jailable offence to misuse a real spoiler tag, to deter the same thing that happened to the spoiler tag, happen to the realspoiler tag. Do we really want to need a totallyrealspoiler tag?
Also, I don't know much about the code behind the forums, but would it be that difficult to do a bit of PHP hackery so that when someone is jailed, spoiler tags are preserved? I'm guessing you would need to use some pretty nasty hacks, but I think it might be something worthwhile.
