How to make spoiler tags?

#1 Post by IamJen » Mon Aug 31, 2009 10:41 pm

(and yes, I've tried the search function, to no avail)

I'd love to join in some of the film discussion, but I can't stand people who spoil movies, so...yeah. :)

Are you talking about hiding some text [spoiler]like this[/spoiler] then click on the BBcode for spoilers and type away between the bracket sets. You do have to use the reply button first to find the BBcode tags above the edit window, the quick reply box will only work if you know the code format already and can type it in yourself.

You are not alone katiepoll3. My hubbie was at a meeting recently, where they were discussing the x and the y generations.
The x generation are those among us who were born up to 1978, and the y generation post 1978. The premise is that the y generation is IT literate, and comfortable with iPods, mobile phones, etc. The x generation have to work at it, as it does not come naturally.

Of course, there are lots of us who can handle the new techology - these guys were saying that most people of a certain age have to work at it. I recollect when my son was 4 years old - he knew how to use a video, and press play etc. We didn't have videos when I was 4. The y generation have been born into a society where these devices are commonplace and it is second nature to them to use it.
