Feature Request: Spoiler button in reply boxes

And by that, I mean a button you can press in the reply boxes (both quick and dedicated-page) that put spoiler tags around the highlighted text. It's not a big problem, but it would be convenient and the coding seems like it would be similar to that for the code/html/php buttons.

Apologies if this has been discussed and dismissed before, I checked the first few pages and didn't see anything. Thanks!

    If someone could give me a 21px by 20px transparent gif that represents a "spoiler", I can put it in there right quick. Otherwise it will have to wait until I get around to firing up the icon editor and doing some pixel work, which could be a while.

    Here's some example/template images:

    Can't take credit for this (I just made it transparent):

    I'd go ball-gag, personally.

    My pixel skills suck, but here he is...

    spoiler-ballgag.gif

    "Aeris Dies" is probably better, though...I'm likin' that one.

    EDIT: Looking at it there, I definitely need to do some shading/lighting on that ballgag.
    EDIT: Eh. Still needs work. Work that I don't intend to bother with unless anybody else expresses interest.

    I found most of the submissions to be just, meh.

    So I went and found one that I liked: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/images/buttons/spoiler.gif

    It is now installed.

    Oh yeah? Well I think your icon is just meh! So there!

    Hmm...yeah, I'm not excited about the one you chose. Of course, I wasn't exactly excited by mine, either. But then again, since it only appears in the editor, and since at least I know what it does, I don't much care. Thanks for putting the button in!

    Rawk. Thanks, Ramius.

    Is there any way to stick it on the Quick Reply box?

    Also, I burst out laughing at the "Aeris Dies" one.

    Edit: It keeps trying to crop out everything but the black area when I make the BG transparent. :(

    I don't know if it's the fault of GIMP or something else.

    awesome I had been hoping for that feature for a while (not complaining it didnt come sooner)

    as an aside, for those who use bbcode it'd be cool if the code for spoiler also has a shorter version, like [ sp ] [ / sp ]



    EDIT: Actually, Ramius - should it be showing up with the other buttons when editing? It's there in the quick reply and regular reply... but not the edit pane (yet the others are)

    Hey come now, he might have meant to stick in the edit pane and would appreciate someone pointing out it's not there.

    If it's not supposed to be, that's fine; nobody's complaining.


    It's hard to make suggestions sometimes on this board without people deciding you're ungrateful for everything we already have or do get.


    I think the fact I'm still here is testament to these boards being the best to use on the net... or at least that I've experienced. Seriously they rock top to bottom.

    I like Aris dies better.

    I think that the exclamation point in yellow would do better for a new report button.
