What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 144 Stack Exchange communities.

It was announced on the Stack Exchange Podcast episode #23 (at 1:05:26) that Stack Exchange now has its own URL shortener, http://s.tk/.

Users can't create their own, they can only use the ones that are built-in.

So what shortened URLs are available through it?

Is this list still up-to-date? –  gerrit Dec 13 '12 at 13:18

Links are added as they are discovered. So there's a possibility that there exists sites that have links but are not listed. If you find any, feel free to add to the list. –  Jeff Mercado Dec 15 '12 at 19:31
    
There was s.tk/denver, but that's obsolete now so I won't bother adding it. –  Jeremy Banks Jan 1 '13 at 11:09
    
Do we really need ones for Jeff's and Joel's profiles? –  Cole Johnson Jul 22 '13 at 4:21
    
@Cole I can't imagine anyone using them but it's not like there is a negative cost to having them there. –  Amicable Jul 22 '13 at 8:10
    
@Amicable No! You see, It's a conspiracy! They're slowly but surely implanting doctrines in our minds! It's subtle things like these that make it hard to pick up on! Don't you get it!? They are promoting themselves as the leaders! They're plotting to take over! We can't have that! You need to be on the lookout to notice things like this! –  Cole Johnson Jul 22 '13 at 8:25

First Stack Exchange and in 6 to 8 weeks, the world! –  Amicable Jul 22 '13 at 11:25
    
s.tk/blender is currently going to a private staff Google Hangout. –  Jeremy Banks Apr 16 '14 at 15:08

s.tk/meta should now point to Meta.SE, no? –  brasofilo Apr 17 '14 at 12:04

Shouldn't these be in alphabetical order within each section? They're a nightmare as-is. –  E.P. Aug 12 '14 at 16:06
    
@E.P. You're right. Doing that now, and updating some links. –  Jeremy Banks Jan 20 at 1:55
    
Why is /hyphen how they choose to refer to Expert Exchange? Why not /arch-nemesis or /anti-christ, or /arch-enemy or /rival? –  ArtOfWarfare Apr 27 at 15:02
    
@ArtOfWarfare Because it's none of those things? SE won by a knockout. Today's rival would be Quora. (Also, "hyphen" refers to what happens if it's omitted from the domain name: expertsexchange.com) –  Yes Apr 27 at 15:12
    
@2mkgz: That's hilarious - I've never noticed that before. –  ArtOfWarfare Apr 27 at 15:18

Beware of s.tk/stk for fear of infinite recursion

hmm you would think s.tk/stk would cause a stackoverflow. Must be using CPS combined with TCO –  Some Helpful Commenter Oct 21 '11 at 19:00

All links you can access via stackexchange.com. If I'd go to s.tk/x it'll take me to stackexchange.com/x.
