    Obviously the internet is deciding for you wether you should see spoilers.

    Srsly. have you tired restarting your browser and clearing your cache?

    I forgot
    Clear the cache, restart the browser. Should work then.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Have you disabled script? If you have, then that's why.

    If it were working properly, you should be able to open this

    But not this.

    Just in case you tried opening one that wasn't and got confused or something.

    P.S. @ProtoKun7 How did you do that?

    :tpi:

    Anyway, though, we still need an answer from the OP as to if the spoiler here worked or not.

    For the second one, I can't open it actually. I've only had it happen a few times and accounted it to my computer not loading the page correctly(I have had many problems with it due to the poor performance of this old wireless card; it'd be clear if I showed you a few screen shots of when I load the homepage or a topic thread, it looks terrible). Enlighten me as to why the second spoiler doesn't open, perhaps? :creep:

    The second spoiler is just an HTML button, but only moderators and admins can use HTML. Quoting it will just give you a string of HTML that if you try to post, will simply show up as a string of HTML.

    also using chrome, but i have not had any issues
    and the OP needs to read people's posts a bit more carefully...

    Still works for me as well, having changed no settings. Chrome Beta latest version, also running AdBlock Plus (Beta) and ScriptNo.

    ...and now spoilers open properly.
    I did absolutely nothing, it just fixed itself.
    Weird.
