Don't know if this could be possible but how about a spoiler like feature on this forum.
This could be useful when posting huge amounts of code. Also could be useful when posting logos, pictures etc.
This would be useful for people who are browsing through their mobile phones, hence the pictures/images/logos
who be hidden in the spoilers. (Causing less crashes, Yes. On some mobile phones the web browser sometimes crashes when
loading pictures. Also images are large in sizes hence people with limited data plans would suffer)
The syntax could be :
Code:
<spoiler>.........</spoiler>

How is the idea?
PS.
Sorry if this feature is hidden, or this question has been asked before.

That means a really poor question for lack of prior research. (read: rule violation)

There are dedicated threads for the screenshots.

Anything that encourages people to post reams of code, and then ask others to debug it for them, could only be a retrograde step IMO.
