Should we Link to Content or Contain content?
Since this is a gaming website, there will be a lot of answers linking to online guides. Would it be better to just post the link to the guide, or posting the article in the answer if it's short?
For example, I posted the whole article
here. Would it be better if I just had the link like I did here? (Then again, the article there is extremely long.)

I think it's best to link the article
and provide a summary in your own words. That way it's not direct plagiarism, but the summary does give some added value and saves some time for the readers if they are not interested in more details.
