    Hey,

    Is there an addon that permits the ability for people to:

    1. submit a link as a thread
    2. title to the thread opens the link in a new pages, so users can view the link.
    3. the link to comments appears under the title or next to it, so users can comment on the link
    4. clicks to the external link would count as a view.
    this would allow me to plug links to external sites, count the views, and generate user comments.

    it's kinda like what reddit, fark, etc do.

    bump - any devs interested in making this?

    1. submit a link as a new thread
    2. title to the thread opens the link in a new page, so users can view the link.
    3. the link to comments appears under the title or next to it, so users can comment on the link
    4. clicks to the external link would count as a view.
    5. these threads can use prefixes and mix in with regular posts.
    6. ties in with paypal/AD Credits so users can bump their link to the top of the list or buy a sticky link

    Any other forum admins want this ability, so that we can post links to other sites and comment on them - it would make the user experience a little better.

    It would also let you send traffic to other sites and hopefully receive some back from the sources.
