    Its being used on many forums now

    The text you put in there has a blackbackground and must be highlighted to be read.

    Can we see this on Evo-Web?

    Its something we could look at introducing, at the moment I think this is the closest you can get to the spoiler thing..

    The question you have to ask yourself tho is do we really need it?

    I think the nicer spoiler tags is where you have to click a spoiler button in the post when reading to see the content, it opens up after the click.

    They have a spoiler tag button which works very well. Not only is it useful for spoilers but its also useful to prevent flooding. FOr example, If I have millions and millions of links or a HUGE CRAZY 1200x1200 res image that I want to post, I can put them in a spoiler tag and then say "Click to view" or something so that so only the people who want to see them can do so.

    Its very useful.

    How's this?

    [ spoiler ]STUFF[ /spoiler ] is how to use it, there's a clickable question mark when posting that does it too.
