Would it be possible to have the forum board software automatically recognise 3 or 4 digit numbers as set references and create links to bricklink automatically? The occasional false positive when a number doesn't refer to a set would, in my view, be worth the convenience.
I know it's technically possible but would be dependent upon what software the board uses (IP.Board) and whether it provides some form of plugin framework. If people think this would be useful, could it be highlighted to The Management for consideration?
The suggestion isn't technic specific so if a moderator feels this would be better moved to another area, please feel free.
( And as soon as I hit "post" I think about the number of times we mention the number of pieces a set has which would give false positives. Maybe not auto then, but custom tags so [bl]851[/bl] for example creates a bricklink reference? )
