Spoiler Tag works a little *too* well for some...

Okay, am I the only one having this issue?  Whenever Stretch Dude makes a new Review topic for episodes, his posts are completely blank to me.  I figured they were just place holders until people saw and reviewed the eps themselves, but Chris seems to be responding to things I can't see...

I think that's due to spoiler tags.  There should be a button you can click on that will let you read it.  I think it's on the righthand side.

Actually, all you have to do is hover the mouse over the word "Spoiler." I imagine it's easy to miss if you're not looking, since it's blue.

See, none of that shows up for me.  No buttons, words saying 'spoiler', anything.  Only way I can read what the post says is if I click the Moderator Modify button for your post.

Graaahaaaam....

Do you read it in the actual thread or in "View the most recent posts on the forum"? Because the latter doesn't seem to display the Spoiler tags at all.
I stole all my stories from an old man named ChatGPT and I have finally decided to tell everything.

I go to the actual thread itself.  Nada, zip, goose egg.

I've done something complicated.

Now, troubleshooting Q&A: Can you see it now?

Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

Awesome.  Now marvel as I take this thread and split it in twine and make one half disappear, only to have it reappear in Got A Problem.  8)

Neat!  They weren't working for me, either - but only, for some reason - while I was logged out.  I'd just log in to check on tags.
