    I'd like to have a mod that works like putting in a URL into facebook or google+ that it pulls in the URL Title and part of the page and puts it at the bottom of the OP maybe in a quote tag.

    I think it would help start discussions since some people will just put in a link and say discuss.

    Is it possible to do some mod like that? Depending on the development costs, I would be willing to make it a paid mod. Options would be just the OP or all posts would generate the quoted description and URL grab.

    me too^^

    but that's really complex if you want to have it like on facebook
    the easiest part is to grab the title, but the relevant infos are very tricky :(

    Do you mean its easy to just grab the title, as in if the link is posted http://www.google.com it turns into Google automatically?
