Spoiler Tag Role Permission

    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.

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

    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

    So my suggestion for the client side option to show all spoilers by default was claimed to be a duplicate of this and closed.

    https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360040470532-Option-to-disable-spoilers-client-side

    It is clearly a separate suggestion which would not be covered by the feature suggested in this.

     

    Title: Option to disable spoilers client side

    Body: Option that when turned on makes spoilers visible by default

    Very needed for large servers. Please implement :)

    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).

    This is heavily needed.

    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 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.

    There was some discussion earlier talking about a client-sided setting, perhaps in the Appearance section within the User Settings, which the idea was that with this option enabled, all spoilers seen by the member are automatically opened.

    This is a great suggestion, which I highly support, so thank you for that comment.

    For anyone looking for a way to make spoilers show by default, it has been added under the Text & Images section on desktop. Currently not on Android, don't know about IOS but doubt it.

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

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

    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

    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

    I agree! Spoilers should definitely be a permission

    Totally agree with this, would be amazing if it could be changed into a permission.

    bump

    A client-sided setting was added to the Text & Images section, with it being set to "On click" by default.
    You can now modify it so it will reveal all spoilers automatically on the client's side.

    What if instead, individual users could just disable spoilers?

    A permission and per-channel toggle (client sid—like muting a channel) would be nice. I often find people putting *everything* in spoilers for no reason but at the same time I would like them in certain channels. Maybe a channel setting that forces everything to be a spoiler would be more appropriate.

    I’d also like the idea of toggling spoilers for messages that weren’t sent by me. If something that is actually a spoiler is posted the only option is to delete it and if I want it reposted I would have to post it. Not ideal since to some it looks like I am stealing content or credit for the content.

    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 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.
