Before I could put a warning in the spoiler and they wouldn't play until clicked which made them bearable/usable. Is it fixable pls?


Autoplay video removed. As already stated, autoplays are against the forum rules and I've received a lot of reports about it. Just get regular link from Youtube or something.

Autoplay videos simply are against the forum rules.

They're not really autoplays if the spoiler tag works. (Requires a click to open/play)

Spoilers do not, nor have ever done those things.

Keep in mind that not everyone viewing this site has unlimited data either, some people here on mobile have data plans that set hard limits on what they can use, which any autoplaying video will absolutely eat into and swiftly deplete, far faster than say, a gif for example.

Weird that it never worked here.

It worked on all of the previous zetaboards I've used but if it never worked here then idk but claiming that "Spoilers do not, nor have ever done those things." is 100% false. I'm not sure how long you've been a zetaboard user.

Example:

^Admin teaching their board how to use spoilers/autoplays


Maybe you guys broke spoilers at some point in your long history? Maybe it's a recent zetaboard wide issue?

Ty for the responses tho. I'll try it on another board eventually and see what happens.

They have been now outlawed in the official forum rules.

If spoiler tags ever start working again will they be permissible?

Seeing as they are against the rules, I think that is a moot point. They were added to the list of things you can't do for a reason.

The reason being that they play/load automatically. (Wouldn't happen if spoiler tags start working again and fair warning can be given)

I understand why there is a blanket ban atm. &autoplay=1 currently represents a power which cannot be controlled/used responsibly. I dream of a day where that changes.

But here, they don't and likely for good reason. Besides, if autoplay didn't work like you want it to no matter what and I needed to look into the post, my data could drain like blood from an artery knick before I could stop it so I'm just fine with this not changing.

I'm a little confused here - yes that was an option before, however, we chose to not go down that path anyway.
Clicking a spoiler to start a video playing as opposed to just clicking play on the video itself leads to exact 0 saved moves.
So what is the difference in your mind?

Having it in the spoiler is not perfect either as it people may open it not realising what is inside it.
