Exclamation How to Use the Spoiler Code.

As we are approaching the release of Portal 2, I just want to take the time out to remind users that we have a spoiler code feature here on the forums to help ensure that users do not spoil the game for others through forum discussions. Please take the time out to get to know how to use the spoiler feature, which is outlined below.

If you are discussing information which has the potential to spoil the game for others, then please use the spoiler tags. The forum staff take a very dim view of people spoiling the game for others.

In order to wrap the "spoiler text" in spoiler tags, do the following:

[spoiler]Text Goes Here![/spoiler]



Spoiler:
Text Goes Here!


There is also a second spoiler code which you can utilize to insert the "spoiler text" directly into a sentence.

[spoileri]Text Goes Here![/spoileri]


Text Goes Here!

Please also be careful as what to put in a thread title a lot of things can be implied even from brief descriptions so try to keep it generic.

Don't forget the "/" in the closing code.

You have to put a "/" in the closing code.

Please people, use spoiler tags for EVERYTHING ending related. I'm afaid I've just had one of the endings ruined for me, because someone didn't spoiler tag it. They were scoffing at it and citing it to show its "fakeness". Don't take any chances, if it turns out the endings are real, its going to be a huge disappointment
