Bit of an explain here, so bear with me. Similar general idea to username tagging. I think that players should be able to link to CF forums in any chat channel (except for advertising) using a shortened format. For example: [G] Player1 > I'm running for president, check this thread ft:44484 for more details. [L] Player2 > why was i muted for 1 week? [L] [Moderator] Moderator1 > @Player2 you can view the report against you here ft:52693 How does it work? Every forum thread has a numerical ID at the end of the URL, for example this one is: https://creative-fun.net/threads/shortlinking-to-forums-in-chat.52855/ (52855) So, to link to this thread in chat I'd type something like this: [G] Player3 > check out my awesome suggestion! ft:52855 Clicking on the number would link directly to that thread (try all of the links!). The title of the thread isn't needed in the URL, in fact all that is needed is the ID: https://creative-fun.net/threads/shortlinking-to-forums-in-chat.52855/ (original link) https://creative-fun.net/threads/52855/ (the link still works without the title of the thread) https://creative-fun.net/threads/144-chatmod-application.52855/ (in fact, it works with any text) Individual posts and entire forum sections also have numerical IDs: [G] Player1 > how do I report someone for griefing? [G] Player2 > here's the report section ff:8 [G] Player2 > make sure to follow the format ft:10 [G] Player1 > Monis added an advertising channel: fp:291610 The exact letters used would be: ft for threads fp for posts ff for individual forums I can imagine this being useful in linking to reports, suggestions, etc without using up large amounts of characters. It also has the potential, depending on usage, to boost awareness of the forums and forum membership. It's definitely not convenient (or nice looking) putting an entire link into chat so I reckon this will make it easier.
