Spoiler Tag

The forum could use a spoiler tag that would require users to click a button to reveal text. It's helpful to reduce long posts or even for users to engage in long banter about plot points in public forum without killing it for newbies. Yes, I know most iOS games don't have an involved plot but still it could help. Think about it.

I'd love that, instead of coloring my posts white

Thought about this too and came to the conclusion that it wasn't worth a thread. But I would really like to see it, especially as white text is clearly legible with high brightness and contrast on a monitor but near invisible on an iDevice.

Don't use white, use the background colour: #fafafa

Example: hidden text!

Another example of a well-hidden spoiler text, can you read it?










Hmmm?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
