Default SPOILER TAGS: When & How to Use Them

When to use spoiler tags

You should use spoiler tags in a post when part or all of it reveals an important plot point, twist or ending of a film.

Note this applies to new and old films alike. Just because a film is a classic, or because you have seen it many times, don't assume that everybody else has already seen it.

Exception
If you are creating a thread dedicated to a key plot point, twist or ending of a film, you can just include a spoiler warning in the title of such thread...for example, a thread title such as "I didn't get the ending of No Country for Old Men (Spoilers)". In that case, you don't need to use spoiler tags inside the thread. Nobody should open that thread unless he or she has seen the movie.


How to use spoiler tags
The Forum has just added Spoiler tags to the tool bar above, It works just like the quote. You can highlight the text and click the icon and it will automatically spoiler wrap the text on the highlighted dialogue.(To highlight text, just click with mouse and run it over what you want highlighted)
Blu-ray Forum - Edit Post_1267004812743.jpg
Here is the old fashioned way:
Spoiler tags work as other usual tags: you place the string spoiler between brackets before the text you want to "hide", and the string /spoiler after, also between brackets. For example:
[ spoiler]This is a spoiler[ /spoiler]

For the message to be actually hidden, here's how it appears when you remove the space between the square bracket and the slash:
[Show spoiler]This is a spoiler


You can tag whole paragraphs, or parts of it. You can tag even only part of a sentence. Example:
At the end of Citizen Kane, you find out that Rosebud was
[Show spoiler]the sled he had as a child
.

That sounds great in theory, but those of us posting from a PS3 can't highlight text to read it.

What else you got?

So to clarify:
[Show spoiler]Is profanity or risque discussion allowed on BR.C if properly sequestered in a spoiler tag?


And by the way.... Where ARE the ethereal forum rules. I'd like to read them, please. Thanks.

Another thing:
[Show spoiler] Where the hell is my post count, who closed the post count thread in the feedback forum, WHY the heck would you close a thread in the feedback forum? Is this Communist China where bad feedback is punishable by closing your thread? What's going on here?
Good thing my post is safe inside my spoiler tag... And it has a compass in the stock.
