    I've wanted to add spoiler-tags to a PM before, but it doesn't seem to work. Besides this BB-Code I'm sure that there are also other codes that don't work in the PM, so I'm also asking here which BB-Codes I can use in a PM.

    inside a post-apocalyptic world.
    That "spoiler" problem happens to me multiple times when using it in PM. I dunno why. [​IMG] I was about to ask Costello about it, but I changed my mind and don't mind the problem.

    And... thumbnails also doesn't work in PMs.

    the spoiler tag is a custom BBcode that has been added manually to most places of the site.
    though we never found it very useful to have it added to the PMs...

    That does make sense. However, spoilers are useful for reducing large posts. I can't think of anything I pm people to naturally be put in a spoiler, but I have sent many large pms before.

    I usually use it for posting large pictures, because the thumbnail code isn't included too. [​IMG]
