    Default Bring Spoiler button to main posting page

    As the forum is insisting on having every video wrapped in video tags, and then spoiler tags, can we move the spoiler button to the first page when we're posting a new thread?

    A currently it's only visible on a reply, when you go advanced.

    Its actually visible when you press preview post

    I just simply add "[sp0iler] [/sp0iler]" as its not hard to add this to the post in the first instance

    It's so unfriendly to use and utterly counter intuitive.

    If you break down the steps it takes just to post a video from YT when you start a thread.

    Step 1: Click New Thread
    Step 2: Paste your URL into the box an then cut it again
    Step 3: Press the Insert Video Button
    Step 4: Paste the URL into the video box
    Step 5: Press OK
    Step 6: Click at the front of the URL and type [/sp0iler] at the start and type [/sp0iler] afterwards (a real fucking pain if you're on a mobile)
    Step 7: Write your post
    Step 8: Submit the post.


    Or, you can replace Step 6 with, clicking into previous post, add in some extra steps to wrap the tags around it and then submit it.


    Either way, it's a very poor process for the user to go through.

    I understand that having YT videos can slow a forum down in large threads, but given the fact we have next to no new threads a day and minimal active users, can we not just scrap the spoiler tag system, if we can't make it easier to post using it?

    Even when replying to an existing thread, there is a video button there, but no spoiler button, yet there are ones for "Switch editor to Source mode" and "remove formatting". I've never used those in all the time I've been on the forum.

    You have to stop what you're doing in the quick reply, go into advanced and then repeated that utterly ridiculous process over just to post one video.

    It takes me about 20 seconds to type the spoiler tags

    So unless you want to ask Raptor to alter it, I don't see this as been a big issue. You got a lot of time at home so
    the exercise will do you good

    Good for you, takes me significantly longer on a mobile.

    Why are you so against improving user experience?

    I'll gladly ask Rap, might get more sense out of him.

    " You got a lot of time at home so the exercise will do you good"

    What are you rambling on about? Honestly, another example of why you're the most obtuse, defensive and just unnecessarily rude person on here for sure.
