As a guys who love questing I was often spoiled by the wiki in the past, I know most people space bar through quests but I know some people are like me and like reading dialogue so here my idea; A template that says Warning this article contains spoilers for the following quests, like this:

{| style="width:225px; border:2px dashed #a06020; background:#e0a060" align="center" cellpadding=0px cellspacing=5px |-

| width="40px" style="text-align:center"|[ [File:Warning2.png|thumb|left|60px] ]|| Warning! This article contains spoilers for the followings quests:

Please add spoiled quests with {{Spoilers|Spoilers}}.

|}

[[File:Warning2.png|thumb|left|60px]] Spoilers}}.

Also why not:

{| style="width:225px; border:2px dashed #a06020; background:#e0a060" align="center" cellpadding=0px cellspacing=5px |- | width="40px" style="text-align:center"|[ [File:Warning2.png|thumb|left|60px] ] || Spoilers end here. |}

[[File:Warning2.png|thumb|left|60px]] Spoilers end here.

Also I don`t why there are white border on the french wiki it don`t happend.

Anyway guys what do you think of this idea? Any feedback or template fix/optimisation are welcome!

Oppose - you'd essentially have to add "spoilers" to every page. Pointless. A wiki is for finding information - it's implied there will be spoilers. Ozank Cx 00:38, September 18, 2016 (UTC)

Correct but sometimes e.g you want to find specials attack of Char and you go one the article but accidently spoil the end of the quest - granted its a very bad example but I think you see what I try to say. Manpaint55 (talk) 00:43, September 18, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose - We have a policy that already covers this issue. The wiki used to have a spoiler warning template, but we decided four years ago to remove it. --Iiii I I I 00:46, September 18, 2016 (UTC)

So I guess this thread can be closed now. Manpaint55 (talk) 01:01, September 18, 2016 (UTC)

Closed - unsuccessful. --Iiii I I I 01:47, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
