I've been around for a while now and I just realised that there's no spoiler tabs. These spoiler tabs commonly appear in many forums.

There are many advantages from using spoiler tabs, some such as:

Videos- reduces scrolling down too much because of so many videos that people have posted. e.g. Big event threads

Pictures/images-Also reduces too much scrolling down. e.g. Chinese Twitter - Weibo thread

Score hiding- Scores of an event may spoil so much for some people, they want to watch it. e.g. China Super League thread

and many more advantages...


Some forums that use this are:

Scroll down to see the spoiler

Awesome idea I like it! Can you show me some forums that use this please :)

Thanks very much for your feedback :)

I see that, looks very good and definitely could be used on this site. Do you think it will be useful for users? Always having to click spoiler on results etc could be a pain?

Yea, it definitely would be useful to users.
Scrolling down is more painful than clicking IMO
also the poster can chose if he wants to use a spoiler or not
If you want, you can make it a vote if the people of TTD want spoiler tabs

lol.... but yea, it does not necessary need to be "spoiler" tab. I saw there are many kind of implementation, like nsfw (not safe for work, you know what these tab for), troll tab, spam tab and etc. I kind of believe these all are code in the same way, it just how you insert the name for the tab.

But this probably will do best for those people who has a slower internet connection speed, which they can choose to view a certain package of picture instead of load all pictures at once

Yes, a good idea to have them, and I do agree that it would reduce the amount of scrolling xD
