    Reason I ask this is if a link is to long it wraps due to text wrap. If someone clicks the url it gets cut off.

    I would like to make a request to shorten urls. Use like tinyurl or goo.gl to shorten urls.

    yes Like youtube links when people post they are so long. So they wrap around. But when people click on them it doesnt copy the hole url. So using a replacment script would be nice for all urls.

    Or quite literally: Shorten it before hitting enter.

    If you think it may be cut off, shorten it yourself.

    I'd do it myself since its a good idea, but I'm in class. However, I did find the API that can be used for it. It's actually quite simple.

    Do you want to make it, or can I do it? I already have the basic stuff.
