Adding a spoiler tag #333

wants to merge 1 commit into from

6 participants


This is an implementation of the following feature request:

This adds a "spoiler" tag, which acts the same way as a NSFW tag: submissions can be marked as being spoilers, and get a new thumbnail and a stamp. A submission can be marked as both being a spoiler and being NSFW (NSFW taking precedence).

The spoiler setting can be changed on a per-community basis: if it's not enabled, submissions cannot be marked as spoilers (it is off by default). When enabled, users also have the ability, through a checkbox in the sidebar, to enable or disable the display of spoilered submissions (just like they can choose to hide NSFW submissions, except this works on a per-community basis).

I would love to see this accepted.

Would LOVE to see this implemented. There are currently some per-community workarounds remapping the NSFW tag that can lead to very comical results.


Hoping to hear a status update on this from the admins. It would be seriously great to have this feature.

I heard recently that it was already implemented once, but it was removed quickly because of negative feedback.


Wait, as in this pull request was implemented?

lahwran commented Mar 17, 2012

no, something similar which added subcategories of NSFW tags, iirc including spoiler

I'm going to close this as we'd rather implement a sitewide spoiler option via extending the link flair framework. Thanks for the pull request.
