Post What to do when posting spoilers (the [spoiler] tag)

Since Chris's announcement got pushed down, I'm reposting this for everyone as a reminder:
Quote:
In preparation for the release of Jedi Knight II, we have added a new vb tag:
spoiler:
Spoiler Info goes here


This tag, as it's name suggests is intended to be used for posting spoilers. With this tag on, users will have to highlight the spoiler box to read the text. We ask that you use this tag during the first few months of Jedi Knight II, so the great story is not spoiled for anyone. Our thanks goes out to Marek of AdventureGamers.com for the code.
spoiler:
Jedi Knight II ends in a huge...
This would also apply to the upcoming Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones. Use [Spoiler] !

Use the spoiler tag for Episode III too, for those spoiler hawks who just can't get enough (you know who you are).

Ok how do we use this new VB code? do we click "enhanced Mode"?? I don't see any selectable VB coding for this type of coding, do we have to type it in, or is there a button that we press to code?


EDIT nm I figured it out

Whew. *wipes brow* Thanks for complaining, oh rightous one. I was running out of pictures, and despairing of ever finding someone on these forums to tell me to shut up.


Insert a witty and thought-provoking quote here, I can't think of any.

I had to gho through each of those stupid tahgs to make sure nothing naughty was said. That took a lot of extra clicking that I didn't plan to do. Don't spahm, and don't use spoihler tahgs for non spoihlers

Testing of the code here aside, we'd prefer if this code was used primarily for spoilers. It's unavoidable that people will use this code to mess around from time to time, but remember that it is here for your protection.

Take the boy who cried Sith one too many times , for example. He and his buddies are messing around with the spoiler tag making jokes with it and what not... then TheRealSith99 comes in and uses the tag. Boy and friends think he came to play along, but oh no, they end up highlightning a nice, big fat spoiler.

Friends don't let friends use fake spoilers often! Remember, please [spoiler] responsibly.
