Translation of this topic into Russian https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5458602.0

I think that the author of the topic will not mind.

By the way, I want to ask a question or maybe it's a suggestion. Why not reserve links of this type for all important threads?


And in general, it would be possible to monetize such links. Say, offer such personalized links for some companies which are advertised on the forum. And in general, you can offer such service to anyone who wants to have a link like this, (for example)

Bitcointalk links tend to be long and would sometimes prefer a shorter link, especially for sharing to Twitter, Reddit, etc.

How it works:
Here's a thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336 -> https://bta.lk/topic/178336 (and /thread/ works too)
Even shorter:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336 -> https://bta.lk/t/178336 (half the size)
How about a user?
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3 > https://bta.lk/user/3 / https://bta.lk/u/3 (almost a third the size)
And of course, an individual post:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2162.msg28302#msg28302 > https://bta.lk/thread/2162.msg28302#msg28302 / https://bta.lk/t/2162.msg28302#msg28302 (a third shorter but could be further optimized)

https://bta.lk
Such a service has been on my mind for a few years, but just recently found and got hold of a good domain for this.
Nothing is being logged, it's just redirected. Eg: bta.lk/path -> bitcointalk.org/path.
Sharing this to see if other people find it useful. If you do, let me know and might keep offering it.

Update: The domain's renewal has been paid in advance for the next 10 years, which is the maximum amount of time you could pay in advance.

Great service indeed. Yes people usually prefer short links and now we have short links for bitcontalk links too.
This is very useful for bounty hunters too as they usually have to post their profile and authentication posts links on bounty threads.
Although I think you should have gone for dot tk domain because it would be more appropriate for talk.

For example bt.tk or something like that.
Though that domain would cost a lot as it is a premium domain.
