What do the Forum Masters think of adding a Spoiler code to the forums?

It's a pretty common tag. Basically, when you see the post, instead of the actual content being displayed, a small "link" that usually says "Spoiler" is displayed. Click on it and on the same page, it immediately opens up the content held within that Spoiler.

This can be useful when trying to organize a large post, and not overwhelm people with too much text at once, or more obviously, when writing a post that contains a plot spoiler.

Get it?

The tag would look like:

Code:
[spoiler]This is the content that is going to show up once you click on the link![/spoiler]


___________


Also Tables would be another great way to organize some stuff...

Highlight to view spoiler.
Not a button, but this is a good quick fix.

Thank you this is effective with protecting the readers from something...

but,

this method doesn't allow for a lot of information to be easily organized. I mean in other words:

Highlight to view spoiler.
hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello

All that covers a large part of the screen but with a single button it would be much more condensed and organized. I think this and Tables would help in particular for long guides.

Making a button to do it requires more work than I'm willing to put in at 3am. I'll make a button for it later. This'll work for now.
