Doesn't make picking and choosing words possible like I like, but appreciated all the same.


...Why do I get the feeling both spoiler methods being available is going to cause trouble?

But I will note, it did not work with any of the mobile applications like TapaTalk anyway. As forum modifications & plugins are not supported by those mobile applications.

The new tag is as such:
[ SP ] [ / SP ]

Without the spaces of course.

Example:

Lord Buttus picks his nose and eats whatever he can find from it.


Please transition to the new tags. The old one will be left alone so past posts will still work with it.
Oh that's awesome. It really helps when using a mobile browser.

Yeah, people are going to use the old one by default, not everyone's going to look at this thread (I'm thinking newbies, not long time members).

Wouldn't it be possible to make the old spoiler tag have the same effect as the new sp one, retroactively switching all of the old posts to the new spoiler style?

I don't want to break/ruin previous posts. So no, I'm not doing that.

It's just going have to be a learning experience for everyone, reminding people in the main threads to transition over. And having core members lead by example.

If we are supposed to transition to the new tags I'd remove the old spoiler button from the reply box. People could still use the old tags by typing them manually but I see no reason to keep the old button if the new tags are the preferred ones.

Edit: I see it happened while I was typing.

The old tag was used to filter certain words or phrases mid-sentence. The new one puts everything however small into its own line.

By entirely replacing it, it breaks formatting of previous posts with the old spoiler tag. We're not doing that.

I have removed the old one from the posting option, and used the same icon for the new tag. Hopefully that will help direct people to use the new one.

Another benefit of this is that it also allows for hiding of really large pictures.

Thank you so much. This will also help out with scrolling too as it got annoying seeing huge blocks of black

A reminder to users to transition away from the old tags. And to use:
[ HIDE ] [ / HIDE ], and not what was originally used for the new tags.

Warnings are being issued to users to remind them individually to transition. They're 0 points, and will not contribute to the infraction levels. It's to document on each person's profile that they've been asked to transition.

Of course you can avoid us issuing the warning by using the new tag.

Thank you.

Can the Rules/FAQs be updated with this? It still says to use the classic spoiler coding.
