Gah! It's a tie! :D

Quick, someone vote for number 2. :(

Can we have less of this please? I understand you want the second option to win and your post is meant mostly as a joke. But you don't see me posting for number 1 to win.

Well you've ruined it now.

When someone is joking irl you wouldn't go all mood-killingly serious on them. So why would you do it on the internet? And why is it that you would aim this at me instead of people that may actually be taking this seriously?

First off, yes I would. And it wasn't only aimed at you. You just happened to be the latest person who did it.

Nice mature and meaningful response there, as per usual.

Also voted #2 a while back. AFAIK to spoiler text generally means to cover it up, and to hide text, well... duh. Now that I think on it having both does seem kind of redundant, but most people seem to be for keeping both so I guess there's nothing wrong with having the choice there :>

The new tag is infinitely superior, but I have no objection to keeping the old version around as

Hidden text highlight (or click) to view:

"I voted XYZ, because.." is ten times better than spam, "Vote for XYZ because I said so", overdone competitiveness, offtopic discussion, and the simple but pointless "I voted XYZ". I would personally like to encourage it instead. It is always good to hear someone else's point of view on the matter.

I voted for the second one because "hide /hide" is easier to type than "spoiler /spoiler" if you're just quickly replying.

...and here comes the casual but unavoidable n00b who doesn't know the difference between /hide and /spoiler and makes a topic to spew his cluelessness into the forum, along with other newbies who've done the same thing.

Testing the differences between them is as easy as pushing the preview button, sure, but do they know that? Usually not.

Well the results are in and while the poll was not heavily participated in, there is a clear (although not dominant) result.

The new tag will stay as the /spoiler and the old tag will remain as /hide.

Thank you to everyone who bothered to vote.
