I know a lot of sites will shorten links automatically by making it appear like www.ga...faqs.com or etc. This shortens the links, so they do not go over the limit for word length.

Can we implement something like this here? Having to go to a third party site to shorten the link or manually adding a space to break the link seems kind of silly in this day and age.

Link shorteners also work. TinyURL and bit.ly come to mind.

Not that I'd complain about GameFAQs implementing their own means of doing so.

Ofc they do. And I mentioned that in my post. The question though is why can't we have this made into a feature instead of redirecting to third party websites. Also, you lose the general idea of what the link is about with those shorteners.
