Spoiler tags?

Perhaps I am contracting mllefoo's eye affliction, but I no longer see the spoiler tags.

Have they been grandfathered, along with the old software?

The spoiler tags were a custom addition. I'm sure Geoff'll pop 'em back in as soon as he gets a chance.

Might be an improvement as I think it won't munch things if the tag isn't closed:

[spoiler]oops didn't close tag

The spoilers show in the preview when you search members posts.

SEE!
It's not really a big deal to me, but it may be to others that are searching.

<b>RMan360</b>, I quite like the way that the preview function gives you that look in to the unformatted raw text....

.... But, as you say, it might mean that people see the spoilers or any other HTML chicanery that people have hidden away there! The same would be true if they followed up a post by quoting, I guess.

For the main part, I suspect that the preview function will be under-used, so the actual impact would be low.
