    is there / could there be a way to post a hyperlink in the forums pointing at a clan challenge?

    at the moment i just paste the url but it means you have copy and paste it into the browser ... it would be a lot nicer if we could just post links as we can with gameIDs.

    I don't think I would. It will probably be commercially exploited. Clicking is much easier than copy and paste, so one really really wants to see that link to go through that bother. If you make it clickable you will see an increase of posted links to all kind of websites because now they can generate traffic more easily.

    Oh wait, you said challenges... Euh, oh well...

    yes certainly we don't want any old hyperlink appearing
    i'm suggesting exactly as for gameID links so it should be with clan challenge links.
    especially for big challenges it's nice to be able to comment on their progress in the forums... but currently very cumbersome to actually see the challenge page.

    eg:

    look, this one is CLOSE:
