• Two exciting new Carpenters releases are in the pipeline! The new book Carpenters: The Musical Legacy will be available on November 16, 2021 and can be ordered here. A big thanks to the authors and Richard Carpenter for their tremendous effort in compiling this book! Also, the new solo piano album Richard Carpenter's Piano Songbook is being released January 14, 2022, and is available for ordering here.

Please use spoiler tags for the new Carpenters book threads (for now).

Not everyone is able to get the new MUSICAL LEGACY book at the same time, and there is likely to be a lot that is discussion-worthy. So as not to spoil things for those who will be receiving the book later than others, please use "Spoiler tags". These are easy to use and a little how-to follows:

If you're on a computer, as you're posting and want to type stuff inside a spoiler, look above the typing area. You'll see the usual things like B for bold, I for italics, etc. Depending on the width of your display area, you'll see a series of three vertical dots. Click on that and you'll see a bunch more tagging options. This one:

is the Spoiler tag option. It looks like an "eye" with a diagonal "cross-out". When clicked on, a new little window opens with an area for you to type your text that you wish to be hidden so as not to spoil anything for others.

When used, all other users will see a blurred out section of text. Then when a user clicks that, they'll see what you've posted inside the spoiler tag.

After awhile, maybe to the end of the year, allowing the Christmas gifts to be received, we can be more free with posts about the book,

If you're using a phone, things work similarly, but the width of the screen limits how many tag buttons are visible at once. The first three dots will bring up the options that are not visible, and you should find the spoiler tag button the same way.[/Spoiler]

Block Spoiler

As Harry says, look for the Eye icon to begin.

Result:

You won't see me until you click the Spoiler button.



Inline Spoiler


You can hide text within a sentence, just like this. Hover over the blurred text and tap or click to display it.

Result:

All you need to do is highlight your text like this, then click the mask icon in the toolbar.

OMG!! Hahah just read such a revelation. Good lord, I thought I knew EVERYTHING about EVERY recording. Just goes to show. I will never hear certain songs the same way again. Great book so far. Thanks.

Much appreciated. Mine arrives next week, and I came across someone's post on Facebook that gave away a fun tidbit I would have liked to read on my own!

I'm not sure I would have asked for members to do this under normal circumstances, but with the supply chain difficulties and delivery uncertainties of the current day, it seemed like a good idea. I know it's tempting to post some tidbit here that you never new and are excited about, so the spoiler tags give us a way to handle that.
