Can we allow users to denote the end of the excerpt by use of a
<hr> in the body of the question?
The purpose of the feature request is to make spoilers easier to hide in excerpts. Consider the following:
You can see I had to add padding to fill out the excerpt to hide the spoiler. If I could do something like the following instead:
<sub>I have seen every New Who episode, even if it has been some time, so spoilers are fine in answers.</sub> ---
And have that
--- (which becomes the
<hr> in question) mark the end of the excerpt, it would result in something that looked like this:
This would enable us to ask questions freely and only worry about spoilers in titles (which is already a pain point for some), instead of having to also add ~200 characters of fluff to the question itself.
(and this doesn't even take into account the onebox in chat that has something like a 300 character excerpt. it could use the love as well)
