Just did a quick search and didn't see anything.

Because people either don't know how or can't be bothered to use spoiler tags, have you considered putting up a "Wrap [SPOILER] tags around selected text" button near the Wrap Quote/Code/PHP ones?

And because it needs it's own 'code', make it input a random five digit code. But if it can't do that, where the code would be, put "*INSERT NUMBER*".

I was looking at this thread http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123898 and many people just put something like
A few have made me a little sad at times tho. *** a few spoilers for games***
*Proceeds to list the ending for all new major games*

A couple didn't even include the word "Spoiler". Just, "BLANK killed BLANK.".

Yes, No?

I'm sure the people who use spoiler tags would use it.

I don't think the people that you're talking about would care to click the button and use the tags anyway though. I mean... spell check is there and most people won't even take the time to use that.

There could be announcements in the individual game forums like there are at the minute?
It just irks me lol, I'd be so pissed if I started a game, went into a thread and had the game ruined...
