In the in-game chat, you can click on URLs that are attached to images, but urls pasted into the conversation are not clickable. They don't invoke the browser.
Can this get bumped up?
Yes, the chat box needs clickable urls other than images, but websites as well.
Not to take a simple job and make it harder, but it's a little worrisome to make a link clickable if you can't read it. (There has been a fair amount of background chatter on this topic.) Perhaps you could make the IRC window scrollable, or make long "words" wrap instead of printing past the edge of the window?
1) scrollable chat window
2) wrap the URL.
A lot of the URLs are to Fold.it or the wiki so sidestepping the debate about URL safety can we allow everything in fold.it domain and anything in (*.)foldit.wikia.com? A huge number of URLs are recipes or forum/feedback pages.
Could you please add http://de.foldit.wikia.com/wiki/ to the click-able links?
