Disclaimer:
When commenting in this topic for the first time, you should include a quick vote as the very first character of your post - that makes it easy for me to figure out the overall enthusiasm for this particular idea.
1: Do Not Want - I hate this idea and would block it/leave the site if you added it
2: Do Not Care - I have no love for this idea, but no real hate either
3: Kind Of Want - This might be a good idea, but there are other things to do first
4: Do Want - I like this idea, and think you should work on it
5: Do Want Now - I love this idea, and think you should do it as soon as possible

Description:
Allow users to have clickable links in message board posts.

Rationale:
This is a modern forums feature that GameFAQs is lacking. Including links allow users to directly visit other sites instead of having to copy and paste the link.

Downside:
Sets up the site as a spam target. Heavy abuse potential (trick links, phishing, malware).

Um, not to criticize science or anything, but wouldn't it be easier just to call it "the pink one"?

4. It would make things nice on browsers that have no Linkification, or copy and paste.

This doesn't really affect us with Linkification, though.

Before I got Linkification it was a huge pain to copy and paste every single message I wanted to see.

Doing a text-to-image thing would take it too far, though.

4. Do Want - Would make browsing links from topics much easier when using a separate computer that has no tool such as Linkification installed.

If anything should be worked on, this should be last on the queue, since a 3rd party plugin covers this already
