Feature Request - Collapsible Spoilers

If the site added collapsible spoilers, that is, where it shows a block of text that has a label that when clicked on exposes all the text hidden away, long bits of information with different sections could be used. That would then make one answer for a question go from a lengthy answer to something like:

1.17

1.15-1.16

1.13-1.14


Then you would click the version you are looking for and it would reveal the answer (this example is from this question).

Well actually, spoilers are actually already here. Markup is >! at the beginning of the line:

>! Spoiler text

And if you had a sample answer, it might look something like this:


1.17

... and so on. I'm pretty sure you can see where this is going.

Spoilers aren't enough! They still take up room on the page even when not clicked on. What you're really looking for is collapsibility. Something like this, which I created on a Fandom page to show you. But sadly, this is not possible in Markdown, and would probably require a lot of changes to the processor to accomplish. I feel so restricted.

In the meantime, I think the status quo is to give answers to the latest release of Minecraft only, unless stated in the question. Answers can be updated to include newer or older versions if any of the following occur:

  • A comment is posted asking for an update.
  • A duplicate question is asked about the same topic. (close the new one and update the answers on the old one)
  • A bounty is offered on the question.

Minecraft is so interesting, especially in the Java Edition because you're not forced to update, and many players play on old versions, meaning many more questions will arise on the old versions. If we're not careful, there'll be a mess of questions and answers.

  • yeah I meant the collapsible spoilers that other sites have, edited the question – Penguin Nov 24 '20 at 4:07

    As of now, tables have been added! This shows that markdown can now be made into more complicated HTML, so maybe something like this could be implemented into the future. It seems less restricted to h1 and hr, so maybe this is a step towards this. – Penguin Dec 8 '20 at 2:28
