How to do Spoiler Warnings

DarlanDarlan Registered User regular
I apologize for my amazing noobness, and doubly so if I am going about this the wrong way, but how does one consor their posts for spoilers? I'd think this would be in some obvious place, and it probably is, but I looked for a while, even in the BBCode FAQ. How is it done?

    Some days I just want to smack people with a rolled up newspaper. Or a phone book.

    and i think alpha might put in [sp] [/sp]

    if he has time and we ask nicely.




    Also a oft-missed part about using spoiler tags is that you should state what the subject is above the tags, so that people can know if its going to be a spoiler for them or not.

    In FFVII
    [spoiler:ecd7fa220e]somebody dies[/spoiler:ecd7fa220e]


    Otherwise its a big guessing game, or you dont read anything in black at all (what I often do).

    I don't know if I've just happened to click on the only topics that had it in, but I've seen a fair bit of Real Spoiler abuse around in the past few weeks. Is that rule still being enforced or is someone working on a "Really Real Spoiler" tag or something?

    Really? Next time you see it, PM me with examples. That's one rule I'm going to enforce.

    It's funny, because they introduced realspoiler because people were abusing spoilers.

    I'm glad you asked 'cause I've been wondering how to do that myself for awhile.

    I'm fairly sure they came in at the same time.


    Also, last time I saw a "real spoiler" abused was by a mod... :S but hey im not complaining, i just don't read any of them.

    I am fairly sure the realspoiler tag came later.
