The "Spoiler" tag looks bad on the new forum layout. It used to say "spoiler spoiler spoiler" now it is just black.

That is the way the spoiler tag is usually implemented on other message boards, to the point it is probably considered a bit of a standard.

Got a link thought so we can check it out?

Rather than a link, I thought a picture may be more helpful.

Thanks, Dan!

I just don't think the black is obviously covering a spoiler. It was much more clear before.

It shows that something has been redacted and being a well-accepted convention on message boards means that people know what it is and what to do.

This change was deliberate (i.e. a stylistic choice), not a bug.

We're collecting feedback so this is one of the things that may change in the final design, based on how users feel about it, so it's good to hear your thoughts about it and I'll make sure the right people are made aware of them.
