It might be this way?

Before:

$extra = qa_db_postmeta_get($post['raw']['postid'], 'qa_q_extra');
if(isset($extra) && $extra != '')
    $this->output('<span class="extra_on_list"> - ('.$extra.')</span>');

After:

$extra = qa_db_postmeta_get($post['raw']['postid'], 'qa_q_extra');
if(isset($extra) && trim($extra) != '')
    $this->output('<span class="extra_on_list"> - ('.qa_shorten_string_line(trim($extra), 200).')</span>');
