View Full Version : Spoilers Within Spoilers

Could we have a policy against them?
They are really obnoxious.

Car...this is vengeance against me, isn't it? :P
Aw, c'mon. It's just in my sig. It's not my fault that...
...Azrael just want to have some...
...fun. Michael and I didn't do it. Do we both have to...
...get flamed for it? :P

You'll notice I didn't specifically flame you. (:
I'd just like a number limit on how many spoilers can be within a spoiler. Five is definitely enough, right?
05-07-2008, 01:02 AM
I have four. I'll agree to that one. 'K? ^^
*I love you Car - as a brother...*
Edit: That mean's I'm the male :crazy:
05-07-2008, 01:04 AM
I love you as a girlfriend.
I'm looking for an administrator's attention.
05-07-2008, 01:07 AM
*Wait are you the sister, or me? Cuz' that would really be ouch if I was the sister*
Anyways, why don't you go PM Shaun about it? :D
05-07-2008, 01:09 AM
I'm lazy, wot.
Originally you were going to be the sister, but then I couldn't figure out how to word it, so now I'll just stick with something equally ambiguous.

Okay, I would agree that too many is really irritating. I wonder if I can limit it in the admin panel...
05-08-2008, 10:04 PM
How about I make Azrael limit his to three? Whenever he does it. He only did it once, in the sig, and he only used four, so I guess that's not liable to make him banned, right? :D
05-08-2008, 11:25 PM
Umm, in theory you won't be banned :P
05-09-2008, 12:22 PM
Don't think you can limit it from the admin panel, Shauny Shaun. Andrew might be able to, but I'm pretty sure it'd need a script that you're not capable of writing. :p

Banning spoilers within spoilers is brutal, totalitarianistic CENSORSHIP. How else can we tell everyone that Dumbledore was killed by Snape, who was wearing a wizard's robe, probably, with a swirly teal and black design on it, which come to think of it sounds kind of tacky, and implies that Snape is colorblind, and that therefore he thought Dumbledore was someone else entirely, like ...I don't know, a space monkey from beyond. Who also happened to be named Dumbledore.
I can't recall how much of that is probable - I never reread those last two books.

We'll make an exception for amusing ones ... like yours.
I'll work on it. I also have fallen victim to...you know what. And it's rather annoying :)
EDIT: How's this?
This is a spoiler that doesn't have lots of boxes.
05-18-2008, 02:33 AM
That might work.
Edit: I lied, I don't think that will work. Zombified has some threads that portray some violence and he was kind enough to use the spoiler feature to hide it with a disclaimer so people who don't want to read about horror violence don't have to. Now you have to hover your pointer over it, which is just tedious. Can we alter how the other one is used or is that too difficult?

Yeah...I use the spoiler tag a lot to arrange all the chapter parts right onto the first post so that people don't have to hunt for them throughout the whole thread. (Thanks to the rest of YWO for doing the same thing: it made critiquing your work a lot easier...)
05-18-2008, 03:41 AM
Well, it was a good idea until it became more than an idea.
We definitely need the little box things for organizing and creating space. If you need more proof, go look at this first page of the SBS thread and wince at the colors.
05-18-2008, 03:51 AM
Yeah, we just need to be able to limit people doing it.
We could just make a policy about them and if people break that policy we'll issue punishment...I mean it would involve having to try to find it when it happens or having people report it.
05-18-2008, 03:55 AM
Seriously, if it happens, it'll be very noticeable. Plus, I'll definitely be keeping an eye out. So...what's the limit of frequency of use and number of spoilers allowed in a single spoiler?
*Looks like Azrael's made a few waves here. I'll punish him for that. But on the bright side, at least we're dealing with this problem now! :D*
Okay, back to normal.
It might be possible to make it disable spoilers within spoilers, but code-wise, it's much easier said than done.
05-18-2008, 04:34 AM
Well, I think reasonably we should keep it below 5 of those things. I'd prefer you all just don't do it more than once, since the basic idea behind them is self-explanatory, but I know you guys like to be funny about it.
