I've noticed that such quick links as [unix.se] for example work beautifully when posted as comments and when posted in Ask Ubuntu General chat room, but as you can see they don't work in question text body or answer text body. Questions for discussion:
- Is there a particular reason why they don't work in answers/questions?
- would it be possible to implement such functionality to match behavior of comments and chat-posts ?
- Would it be a reasonable/useful feature to implement ?
- Is there any alternative way to simplify referencing another network site in body of an answer/question without copy-pasting standard markup for each and every link ? (I can get away with using a clipboard manager, have one of my own, so that's not a big deal, but typing a few chars seems a bit quicker of a solution)
