More info on using spoilers

Given the importance of using spoilers in many situations (especially in the Now Playing forum), shouldn't there be something explicit in the FAQ that tells a user how to use them?

I would also think a vB Code entry for them would be appropriate, if possible.

How come isn't it a vB option? It would make it easier for the newbs

BEcuase the Vb Options are part of the origional code of the software. The "spoiler" option was a added in hack.

I guess I stand corrected.

Spoilers to me fall into the "universal capabilities of the site" category, so I expected to find a description somewhere that applies to the whole site, instead of just a local sticky.

Admittedly, they tend to be used a lot more in the Now Playing forum, and I'm certainly glad there's a description of them in the posting guidelines sticky.
