Is there a way to give it a custom title? Like, instead of "Spoiler" it will say something else more descriptive/accurate of what you've hidden? If this can't be done currently I'd like to turn this into a suggestion.

As far as I know it can't be. What would it need to say other than spoiler?

IIRC correctly you can edit the BBcode to give it extra properties, color being a good example
[color=red]
so you could do
[spoiler=Title]

I just think it'd be nice to be able to be able to give the "spoiler" a more descriptive/accurate title or to be able to indicate what is inside. Like, if I post a bunch of images and I choose to put them in spoiler tags to save space/load time I could change the default title "Spoiler" to something that describes the image. "Spoiler" wouldn't be accurate and even if it was, it is still very ambiguous.

Yes, we can just write a descriptive title above/below a spoiler, but then it looks ugly and creates a lot of extra white space that isn't necessary.

So, since this apparrently isn't possible to do right now, may I make a suggestion/request to implement it? I don't know how hard it would be to add the script/code/whatever to make it possible, but if it's not too much of a hassle, I see no drawbacks to doing this.

Is this a feature you wanted, spleen? I've got it good to go on the test board. We could also make it a completely separate tag.

Yeah, we could do that if you've got something working.
