As per DarkHorizon's suggestion here, what do you guys think of a spoiler template for individual Star Trek (film) cast and crew pages? This way, if someone stumbles onto a page for an actor from the film, they'll have a warning that the article may contain spoilers regarding the film so they can decided whether or not to read on. Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? Have at it! :) --From Andoria with Love 03:16, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

To quote you, "make it so". --Alan del Beccio 03:48, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
As long as I get cheese, I'm happy. Can I get cheese? :) --OuroborosCobra talk 04:18, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Does cottage cheese count? --Alan del Beccio 04:20, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
How's this?
MA 2009Warning!
This page contains information regarding new Star Trek material, and thus may contain spoilers.

I included the J.J. Abrams link simply for disambiguation purposes - otherwise, readers might think "contains spoilers for Star Trek? Well, duh!"...
"2008's Star Trek" could also be used. -- Michael Warren | Talk 00:40, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Hey, that looks pretty good. Reword it a little, though; say it may contain spoilers, because not all of them contain spoilers and what some consider spoilers may not be spoilers to others. Also, I think it's best to say "2008's Star Trek." --From Andoria with Love 08:30, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Adjusted, see above. I'll transfer it to the template namespace now. Transferred to template namespace, use {{Spoiler-header}}. You can see it in action on Chris Pine, looks good. -- Michael Warren | Talk 10:32, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Not to intrude or anything, but how about this? ;)

The background did look awkward broken up like the original, so I applied Harry's suggested color change, but the rest of DH's looked fine to my eyes, so I left it. I also created a "section" spoiler template at {{Spoiler-section}}, which looks like:
MA 2009Warning! This section may contain spoilers for new Star Trek material.
Suspiciously similar to Harry's. :) -- Sulfur 13:19, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
