Haha, alright. How do I use spoilers of some sort?

I know it is possible for spoilers on vbulletin, I don't believe it is a default feature. For some reason I recall the admins saying they haven't added that feature, so I don't think VT has it currently.

We don't have spoilers enabled here. We've discussed the possibility before, but ultimately, it was decided that it wouldn't be smart for VT. Moderation would be made 10373x harder because we'd have to open every single spoiler to see the content, and more inappropriate content could possibly slip through. So for now, spoilers are not a thing on VT, nor do I see them becoming one.

What about a subject like
Game of Thrones Season 6 (Spoilers)

Just don't go into that thread if you don't want to be spoiled.

But I disagree with it being harder. It's just a simple mouse click.

People are more than welcome to put 'spoiler' in the title of a thread. You may think its a simple mouse click but moderating a forum this size is a constant challenge, especially in p101 and when skimming through a page full of posts, spoilers could be skipped over and members could skip them over which means that if their was any inappropriate content, it could be potentially missed.

On a small forum, a mouse click is easy enough, on a large forum with so much content like this, it's a lot more work.

Plus in about 95% of situations, spoilers aren't need on this forum. There is only a handful of scenarios where they would be useful.

I have to lock this because we don't allow bumping after two months, but I don't really have anything else to say on the subject - nor does anyone else, I think. It's not going to happen for the foreseeable future.
