I believe those are steam links, so steam://connect/uk.... so on.
Where, would be the bigger question.

It's an application protocol link... you click it and another local program (on your PC) fires up and opens the link (like magnet URLs with the torrent protocol).

At the exact same spot on the forum index (where that screenshot was taken) I would guess it is within a board description, using html.
So a basic html link
Code: [Select]
<a href="steam://connect/uk.fetti....">uk.fetti...</a> :)

oh...  that was a screenshot non-link.  it confused me because what the OP posted was a straightforward http link except it wasn't a link.... (because the OP only has one post)

However, links within a board description (heck, ANY HTML in a board description) is likely to break things.

That would probably be more html, but there we can't help much - we would need to know where and how the data is fetched.
