    Default Edge-Gamers URL shortener

    I think it would be nice to have the ability to auto-shorten(would be a secondary link) eGO content such as forum posts, official content, or other resources.

    Basically, instead of being
    Code:
    https://www.edge-gamers.com/forums/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=1344
    It might look like:
    Code:
    https://ego.io/AbCdEfG
    Or something.

    This would allow easier sharing of forum posts on things like game servers, discord, TS, or etc. In general, they are more pleasant to look at.

    Things like offcial eGO pages or services could be statically set to things like:
    Code:
    https://ego.io/discord
    Overall this system sounds like a no-brainer.

    Additionally, you don't have to have the URL generation be forward-facing, Meaning that users can't readily maliciously misuse the tool. (Meaning none staff cannot generate the links, things like forum posts would autogen the links, basically we trust staff with this not all users)

    Very cool, but it has to be internal use so no one can put non-eGO stuff in the link.

    In that case, we should expand it further. There is a lot of forum Content that could benefit from this and other things that in the future that we might need.

    We can readily find URL shortener scripts which we could lock down and modify to our needs.

    Honestly I think very few know short URLs for the stuff you mentioned exists

    If you have a suggestion for a page to be shortened just let us know and I'll pass it where it needs to go

    I'm saying general forum content and other resources, like game me. Or this forum post.

    oh shit lmao I get what you mean @4g0ttenSou1.

    Instead of copying full links, he wants posts ran under the edgm.rs link. So instead of copying this:
    https://www.edge-gamers.com/forums/s...89#post3141589, the share link would be: edgm.rs/3445073141589

    Yes, given that part of what I suggested is already a thing (the part about official content).
