    That sounds like a great idea, Discord should totally add it!

    That sounds a like better idea, in all truth. Less agrivating.

    This is heavily needed.

    This is almost required for large servers. It will be quite difficult to moderate if a group decides to spoiler raid a server

    Very needed for large servers. Please implement :)

    Disagree. Users are already more than capable of making extremely lengthy messages using wide unicode characters, making huge spoilers is exactly the same thing.

    It's not just large black rectangles that are the issue. Users could send TOS breaking comments and images using this feature, and that makes a lot more work for server moderators if everyone can do it

    Imho better option would be to just stright up disable members from using them, permission would be best because then yiu can deny it on server/channel/user level

    Yes, This is exactly what we need,. Also a way to disable seeing spoiler tags. I dont want to have to click to read every message that people want to use the spoiler tag for, (ex: using it just for fun)

    This would be better solved by a client option to disable displaying spoilers. Just because I want to be able to more easily moderate spoiler'd content doesn't mean I should stop most of the users in my server from doing so.

    The addition of a spoiler permission would *not* be a satisfactory solution in the servers I manage.

    In a server with 150k plus users, it gets tedious very quickly. Also, if there was an option to disable spoiler tags, how would I as a moderator know if they were being abused? people could be talking entirely in spoilers and I wouldn't know. That is very disruptive to other users. Having this new feature as a role permission is the ideal solution imo, as servers can decide among themselves if this is a thing they want to spend extra time moderating or not

    Good point, allow me to amend my suggestion. Instead of a client option to not show spoiler formatting at all, have a client option that auto-reveals spoilers? It eliminates the additional tedium of revealing spoilers, while at the same time allowing moderators to see if spoilers were being abused.

    This absolutely needs to be a thing.  These spoiler tags make moderation much, much more annoying... especially on mobile.

    Now I get to click on some spoiler tags to make sure that people aren't breaking our rules instead of just looking at the text/picture...  This was not well planned :(

    I can censor the text spoiler tags with a bot, so those aren't the worst thing in the world, but I have absolutley no way of preventing users from posting images as spoilers which is just like posting a huge invite on the door asking them to post obscene images.

    This decision quite clearly did not have moderators in mind at all when you came up with it.  It's like an absolute nightmare waiting to happen at this point and already being abused heavily.

    I need this. As a moderator on a server, it's really cumbersome to have to go through people's spoilers just to make sure nobody's trying to slip some bad stuff through. Please. Please give us this option.

    Agreed we've already had a tonne of issues with this in our servers with people abusing the rules by hiding it, i woke up to a wall of black boxes and spent a whole damn hour going through them all

    Absolutely needs an option to turn it off in servers

    Agreed
    We need an option at least on channel management to allow or disable this fonctionality

    Because for now, trolls take advantage of this to break rules and go round bots censorship...

    An option to disable it needs to be implemented asap!

    This functionality has not been thought through

    I highly support this change. There is a lot of room for abuse here by forcing moderators to click on spoilers one by one to reveal problematic messages, making it more tedious to moderate. There should be a role permission that server admins can toggle to restrict the use of spoilers, and preferably an option in the client to allow individual users to elect to have spoilers automatically expanded (because not everyone wants spoilers to be hidden).

    Also, being able to tap again to re-hide the spoiler would be nice. Changing channels to do it isn't great.

    1 : No. You can (mark&)copy the text thats under the spoiler and paste it into your editor to see it.

     

    2 : maybe

    I agree too, but with roles and permissions need option to disable spoiler tag for users client, to be able see message/image/ etc without clicking on it.

    As an Admin for one of the larger servers on this platform (136K members) This is very frustrating, and signs of abuse are already appearing. While I understand the intended use for the spoiler mark-up feature, it puts an unnecessary burden on the moderation of any server; but especially larger ones. I think if discord offers cool features like this to the community, then at least always give the server management side the ability to toggle the features so that creating internal server policy around it is possible, with our number of users, stuff like this is extremely hard to manage, and we are not as capable of having the same agility as smaller servers to respond to the potential issues that arise.
