Spoilers

Post by Cyowari » Wed Jan 02, 2008 1:32 am

Can we create spoilers on this board?

q. v. Jargon Files:
"spoiler: n.
[Usenet]

1. A remark which reveals important plot elements from books or movies, thus denying the reader (of the article) the proper suspense when reading the book or watching the movie.

2. Any remark which telegraphs the solution of a problem or puzzle, thus denying the reader the pleasure of working out the correct answer (see also interesting). Either sense readily forms compounds like total spoiler, quasi-spoiler and even pseudo-spoiler.

By convention, articles which are spoilers in either sense should contain the word ‘spoiler’ in the Subject: line, or guarantee via various tricks that the answer appears only after several screens-full of warning, or conceal the sensitive information via rot13, spoiler space or some combination of these techniques."

... and if - how?
Does anybody know?

Let in the maid, that out a maid / Never departed more.

[spoiler]I wonder if this works?[/spoiler]

Looks like we do have spoilers on this board.
Place the word, spoiler between the square brackets then, /spoiler after you have giving away the secret and you get what I have above.
Triple click in the space under Spoiler: and you can read the text.

Somehow that just doesn't seem like it should work, but it does.

Thanks for answering that, {{{D}}}
I installed the code when I set up this board. In the US and Canada you always are 1 season ahead of us less lucky Europeans and Asians, and some members prefer to let themselves be surprised (not me, though. I'm as curious as a rat :mrgreen: )

Seems I am on a spree learning more about my PC and its possibilities. Right now I learnt how to screenshoot (here's my first born):

Thank you for helping and many thanks to Jens, whom you don't know, but we just spent 2 hours updating and upgrading my PC, teaching and learning. And he is in Switzerland! But there are the wonderful ways of the internet and clever programs ...
