Hi, everyone. Just as a reminder of how to hide spoiler info on our board, since we have a new movie coming out. Especially with so many sold out theaters on the opening weekend, and we may not all be seeing the movie in the same time frame, it's important to be respectful with spoilers.

When posting spoilers, please announce that portions of your post contains spoilers, and hide the spoiled material by changing your font color. At the top right of your screen you can change "Font colour:" from Default to "White" (second from the bottom). This won't render your text completely invisible, but it will render it hard to read, forcing another user to highlight it to make it legible.

Example:
Major TFA plot spoiler:
Bruce Willis is actually a Force Spirit all along. Rosebud was his swoop bike. Darth Snape kills Dumbledore!

Just be careful when quoting spoiled material. You can either delete the spoiler.

Guess that is what's needed, since this site doesn't seem to recognize [spoiler] tags.

I think changing the font colour to white accomplishes the same thing that the spoiler tags would (You need to highlight the text to read). It's not a big deal to do it this way.

I really appreciate everyone being considerate with spoilers.

Let me test this out.

The Shrine of Binks scene was very moving.
