One of the more burdensome things about voting on debates is source checking. I would like to improve the content that I generate by making source checking easier for the voters. Currently, I go like this:

FACTUAL CLAIM [1] <blah blah blah> FACTUAL CLAIM [2] <blah blah blah> FACTUAL CLAIM [3] <blah blah blah> FACTUAL CLAIM [4] <blah blah blah> FACTUAL CLAIM [5] <blah blah blah> FACTUAL CLAIM [6] <blah blah blah>

Sources:

1. <http link>
2. <http link>
3. <http link>
4. <http link>
5. <http link>
6. <http link>

I would much prefer for the [1]; [2]; [3]; etc to be an actual link that opens a new tab for the reader when clicked. Is this possible? How could this be done?

You could just incorperate the sources into the debate. As seen here. http://www.debate.org...

That's doable but it looks messy.

That's why not a lot of people do it that way.

Yeah I'm starting to conclude that it's either very difficult or impossible to do what I originally wanted to do. I'll probably settle for using a URL shortener. It looks pretty clean, and gives the user a bigger target to click. Thanks.

Hm, you mean something like pasted.co?
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

Well I was considering the ones on this list:

http://singlefunction.com...

The ones on that list seem to have the advantage of taking up less space, but users may be afraid to click them.

I was considering using goo.gl because most people are familiar with it. Tiny URL also has familiarity going for it.
