Do they do more harm than good?
Yes.

When the addition of spoiler tags came in, I was amazed. They worked so well and so quickly and I immediately thought of my guides which are too long for conventional reading. I spoilered anything in my Vayne guide that didn't seem necessary to read/look at unless one was curious.

I created this poll to get some feedback on using spoilers in guides. Was it a bad idea?

I don't really mind clicking spoilers since I am usually a very curious person and just click it anyways.Aesthetically it might hurt if people use it wrong and just spam it the whole time.

But an added feature won't hurt that much.

Curiosity killed the cat.
No, they really don't hurt. I am naturally curious, so if I see an interesting looking guide, I go there.

Maybe I am just saying that because I have that sympathetic heart. (EGO CHECK MUCH?)

Agree with above comment.
Thanks to Xiron and ProAsylum (Ignition) for the amazing signatures!
If I helped out with constructive criticsm, I would appreciate a +rep

Could be useful to summarize chapters or something.

Naww, you can't spoil info that you're already going to learn. That's just learning.

But if you mean for like summaries. No, you wrote what you wrote, people shouldn't need more to understand what you said.
Thank you everyone for the sigs. <3

Great idea, imo.

I might really need to make something like this for my guide
Want to see an in-depth diamond level LeBlanc guide? Come by and check this ;) It's written by Baekstra who is a Diamond LeBlanc main on EUW and being one myself, I can vouch for it 100%!

Thanks for the opinions guys. I think I'll keep the spoilers for now, but I won't put them into my other guides...

I can see having the Spoiler Tab would help for non-essential things or just detailed info on something that people might deem irrelevant, and only look at it if they really want to.

~I didn't even know about this until now tbh o.O
^^ Check out my Gangplank Guide! ^^
