Spoiler tag Issue Tools
issueid=964 06-02-2012 10:35 PM
Occasional orbinaut
Spoiler tag
[spoiler][/spoiler]

The "tag spoiler" could be provided for two main reasons:
1) posting solutions/hints for a Orbiter challenge;
2) when talking about movies/books/others in the off topic forums and wanting to not spoil the end of stories/stuff.

Examples:

Interesting challenge!
[spoiler]The solution is understanding the orbital mechanics.[/spoiler]

Nice movie!
[spoiler]In the end the main character dies.[/spoiler]

I don't really see a need for this.

To be honest, theirs not much use for this, their might be some use like when the alien appears on the window of the XR5 but other than that, Orbiter dose not have many other surprises.

I could see a use for it as he described for challenges as well as in the off-topic forum for things like race results or movie plots.

I like the idea. There are a few different hacks available along these lines so I'll try to sort the wheat from the chaff and/or modify something to suit our needs.

Added to to-do list.

Also, my 2p's worth, it's useful for space saving with large blocks of text - I know we have the tags that give you a box with a scroll bar, but this could be very space saving.

I don't like the idea of abusing it for the sake of space saving. It should be used just to hide spoilers and not every little part of the post (like for example on Minecraft forums). The tag isn't meant to save any space but only to hide from the readers the part they don't want to know normally. It wouldn't be called "spoiler" tag otherwise, but for example "tldr", "hide", "savespace", "collapse", etc.
