Is it possible to pass the post id as a parameter? i.e. to use something like

meta.stackoverflow.com/?posts=1234

in place of

meta.stackoverflow.com/q/1234

or

meta.stackoverflow.com/posts/1234


Edit:

Here is a use case:

Sometimes I want to use URL shortening services like j.mp in places like twitter. They give a short URL for a URL, so right now one needs a different short URL for each question. With parameters one could use a single nice short one (e.g. j.mp/MetaSO) and then add a parameter for each post, something like j.mp/MetaSO?id=1234.

I'm curious why you're trying to do this (where the path won't work), can you provide a use case? –  Nick Craver May 20 '11 at 1:50
    
@Nick, done. :) –  Kaveh May 20 '11 at 2:21

Interesting! Seems like it would be a simple URL rewrite (or iis config in this case) –  Adam Davis May 20 '11 at 3:09

Man am I tired of obfuscating URLs! Why can't you just use the real one instead? –  Cody Gray May 20 '11 at 3:37

Great opportunity for someone to register a SO short domain :D –  JohnP May 20 '11 at 4:45

Currently, this is not possible. Why do you want to do this?
