I think it'd be nifty if Threads could automatically embed site owners' affiliate codes into appropriate links when posted by members.

For example, if someone links to this product on Amazon.com:
http://www.amazon.com/AJAX-PHP-Buil.../104-6772149-0161532?ie=UTF8&s=books

I'd like to have my affiliate code appended to the end of that link.

One or either of these should work:
/myaffiliatecode
or
&tag=myaffiliatecode

It'd have to be tested to see which works better.

Again, this code would be added if any member were to post a "check this item out" link

One complication would be to recognize/designate different affiliate codes for amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.ca, etc, etc. wink
