As I see it, this wiki is useful in two different ways: People that have not yet seen a film can find out whether it's worth sticking around until after the credits, and people the HAVE seen a film can find out what they missed if they didn't stick around. However, this raises a problem, in that people who haven't seen the film don't necessarily want to know what happens after the credits, either because they plan to see it themselves or because it might contain spoilers to the rest of the movie. So, to solve this problem I suggest implementing collapsible tables so that any spoilers can be automatically hidden on a page.

This requires an admin to copy the appropriate source code from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.js to the page MediaWiki:Common.js on this site. Does anyone else think this is a good idea, and would any admins be willing to edit the page? -- Supermorff 17:32, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Collapsible Tables

I've copied the entire code from WP to the Common.js file. Admin 16:50, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Fingers crossed... -- Supermorff 18:50, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Dangit, this does not appear to have worked. Thanks for trying anyway. I don't suppose you know why this might not have worked... or know somebody else that might know why this didn't work? -- Supermorff 19:08, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
It could be because Common.js isn't being included in the pages. I'll have to check it out... I'm not too familiar with the inner workings of mediawiki. Admin 03:03, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
No, it is working for me now. Admin
Me too now. Huh. Also: Wahoo! -- Supermorff 17:10, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
I have created a very simple box template (Template:Details) to help hide spoilers, and I've implemented it on the Iron Man page. What do you think? Worth proceeding with? -- Supermorff 17:26, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Looks good to me.--Admin 12:51, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
