    Can we get a rule about posting spoilers? I don't know if the software this site uses supports it but I've been on other sites that allow you to post spoilers with a button that says "spoilers." You have to click the button to show the text.

    Obviously this is a Jazz forum so if you don't want spoilers for a Jazz game you'll probably need to stay off the site until you watch the game, but for TV shows or other sporting events (Like the Pacquiao fight) it'd be nice to not get taken by surprise with a blatant spoiler. Many of us DVR stuff or watch TV series based on novels and people around here are pretty insensitive in regard to giving things away.

    Not really asking for people to get infractions for spoilers (although I've been on other sites that do punish people for posting spoilers) but giving us the option to use the little spoiler button would be nice. And posting *Spoiler Warning* in thread titles instead of posting a spoiler directly in a thread title.

    Anyway, maybe I'm just bent over several recent spoilers. Thanks for letting me rant.

    The spoiler warning clicky box thing GF is talking about is actually pretty Bawse. I'm not too worried about Spoilers, but another forum I read sometimes has them (the forum looks exactly like this one) I would just use them for jokes and stuff. Actually I don't know how or why i'd use them haha.

    Not for sporting events!!!

    People there use it for TV shows or if they want to post something NSFW.

    The website is Shaggy Bevo . Com

    It's a University of Texas message board I started reading when I was following all the Utah to the Pac 12 stuff 24 hours a day a couple years back.

    Go there and read the "Nasty's" forum. hilarious stuff. A lot of it probly is infraction worthy here tho so hide ya kids hide ya wife etc

    Took a quick look. Not patient enough to look through it though.. I only got as far as 'stickers on hats.'

    Your computer now has a handful of viruses.

    Can't believe you actually went over there.

    But seriously, spoiler boxes are awesome. Like UGLI said, they're at least as useful for jokes as for protecting spoilers.

    Sorry, I will ruin it even further.

    I hate to say but clutchfans forum uses the spoilers button and it's an awesome feature to me. It may be the only good thing there.
