Hi,

One problem I\'ve just encountered when trying to respond to a hint request - this board has no way to hide spoilers. If I want to put an explicit solution, then I can\'t obscure it in any way to prevent accidental spoilage of someone looking for a less explicit hint. Spoiler space will work, but it means that it\'s impossible to read the responses to me without extra care.

In HTML, it would be possible to do so by using white-on-white writing to make highlighting the spoiler necessary; but HTML is disabled, and UBB has no such code. Anyone have any suggestions?

Okay, I made a new UBB code and it seems to work. If you want secret text for spoilers, here is what you do:

{secret}The secret text goes here.{/secret}

But change the curly brackets above to square brackets. It\'s important to end the secret text with a closing \"/secret\" code like above, or you can cause weird formatting for your message and any messages coming after it on the same topic.

They really should be a penalty for posting unsecreted spoilers.

Oh, and before you mod me, I still see this as a problem, the fact that it was the last on the board has nothing to do with it.

There is, and it appears to be the same penalty for posting anything else that annoys people. Like bumping ancient threads to add nothing to the conversation.
