Topic: Pasting a planet list in message, Convert to Hyperlink

When you post coordinates in a message and it automatically hyperlinks is a wonderful thing, but for some reason when that list comes from a "Find Target Planets" copy paste, it bugs out royally.

I would provide an illustration, but that might give away my intentions wink

If you want to see what I mean pie / any other admin, you can look in my Milky Way inbox for a message from myself.

Are you sure it doesn't fix itself later? I noticed last round if I sent large lists to people it would appear as weird text for a few minutes, but when i went back a bit later everything was linked properly.

It does a thing where like 6,15:4 would become a hyperlink to 6,15:44 and would just take you to the system because that planet doesn't exist.

Edit: It did seem to fix itself and made it say 6,15:4:4 but the final 4 isn't hyperlinked. Of course when you then try to take the list and put it into Distance Checker, it doesn't know what to do.

I used to be a code tester, now I teach Computer Science in high school. It is my job to break things.

Yeah. so this doesnt work. It makes some of the planets say 46,13,21:2 instead of just 46,13:2

Can you email us a sample list where this happened?

I think we need the original data.
