There's a reproducible display bug for this template on the Safari, Chrome, Firefox browsers on OSX and IOS based computers/devices. Just an FYI for the next update - Spirou 04:23, 19 May 2013 (EDT)

We could revist whether the use of a spoiler template on an encyclopedia project is what we want to do. There's some reasoning which could be relevant at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SPOILER -- Sine 01:20, 27 May 2013 (EDT)

Good points against. - Spirou 01:25, 27 May 2013 (EDT)

I can see it being redundant if we have appropriate sections for it. Our coverage is generally more descriptive of plot than Wikipedia. The whole article is likely to be something of a spoiler. Does this matter? If it did we'd probably do better to hide material by default than have a warning. This seems like a big task which there isn't much demand for. If people come to a wiki, they probably expect to find complete information about a topic, including spoilers. We might do better focussing on clear areas where they should not find spoilers, e.g. above the fold, or in areas where links are in case users want to get to the subject of the article without reading it. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:33, 17 July 2013 (EDT)
I got rid of the 90% which probably caused this - perhaps you could retest? --GreenReaper(talk) 18:33, 17 July 2013 (EDT):
On it. Okay, the latest fix brings the text with the "spoiler" tag back up under the section title, but it removes and leaves a hole between the image/files Brother Bear and the Disney logo (i.e. "Brother Bear II), just FYI - Spirou 21:17, 17 July 2013 (EDT)
