spoilers for character tags?

Post by RockRabbit » Tue Nov 08, 2016 8:46 am

I was curious... is it possible to have the character field display certain characters as spoilers too, when the spoiler tag is applied?
My reason behind this is that often the fact that an image with certain characters is marked with a spoiler...is a spoiler in itself in some way.

For example, (spoilers ahead) I know little about Danganronpa, but as I saw this image
http://e-shuushuu.net/image/870223/
I was pretty sure that the character Touwa Monaka is probably this game's killer, which got confirmed by opening the image and seeing the Monokuma elements on her outfit.

Unknown from Mystic Messenger is, for the most part of the game, uhm... unknown :D
http://e-shuushuu.net/image/869256/
but it is eventually revealed that he is the twin brother of one of the main love interests. they share similar names and seeing as Unknown is a name used on other sources, I can't even hide his real name behind the Unknown tag like how I did Seven's name in the 707 tag ( http://e-shuushuu.net/tags/141806 )

These are not really bothersome if one is familiar with a certain source from start to end, but if we take a name and spoiler in some cases, putting 2+2 together is super easy and could still ruin the whole idea behind the spoiler tag to begin with for those unfamiliar or still new to the source.

If more examples are needed, please let me know and I'll provide.

(Oh golly, in majority of Danganronpa cases, this is not character's name that is the main spoiler, to be honest xD)

I don't know if this is possible, but I think it would be pretty useful. As long as hidden character's name appeared in results while checking their tag, of course.


Actually, it would be good to not limit it just to character tags, but to theme tags as well.
Using another Danganronpa example, SPOILERS AHEAD

We have to use "trap" tag for Fujisaki Chihiro, even though this is big spoiler for second trial of the first game.

I was recently thinking the same about a Code Geass character.


SPOILER
Julius Kingsley is a child tag of Lelouch Lamperouge and if you search for Lelouch, both images appear, when really the point of Julius Kingsley is to keep the audience guessing if it's him.
