What is the "Spoiler" BBcode?

For those of you who do not know what Spoiler BBcode is, it's a BBcode that can hide text/image until the end-user clicks on the "Reveal" button above the spoiler.

For example, in this use of a spoiler, I will hide text and an image inside of it. After the " = " sign and before the first " ] ", I'm going to write "This is a test" to display how "This is a test" will appear as the name of the spoiler. The insertion of text in this area is completely optional, as you do not need to title your spoiler. Between the first " ][ " is where I will include the picture and text I would like to hide.

[Reveal] Spoiler: This is a test
This text is no longer hidden!
And that picture of a smiley face is no longer hidden as well!

Where/when are spoilers used?

When discussing information that "spoils" any part of the game (e.g. giving away puzzle solutions to a game) outside of forums specifically designated as a "hints, tips, and spoilers" forum, you must use a spoiler. Spoilers do not need to be used inside of forums designated for the purpose of giving away such information about the game.
