# Short URLs for cstheory

I have created

j.mp/cstheory

j.mp/cstheorySE

Feel free to use them.

• Thanks @Kaveh! Are these links permanent? May 19 '11 at 11:04
• How does this work for links to actual pages ? May 20 '11 at 0:35
• @Hsien-Chih Chang, yes, they are, and they cannot be modified to direct to any other URL (if understood their FAQ correctly). May 20 '11 at 1:14
• @Suresh, I don't think they will work for questions (something like j.mp/cstheory/q/6651/) since they are for fixed URLs. It could work if there was a way to give the postid as a parameter, something like j.mp/cstheory?postid=6651. May 20 '11 at 1:24
• @Suresh, I posted a feature request. May 20 '11 at 2:28
• Please note that something like cstheory.XXX.XXX/q/6651 would be shorter than j.mp/cstheory?postid=6651! If only we had a shorter version of stackexchange.com, the problem would be solved permanently for all sites. May 20 '11 at 20:42
• Incidentally, qa.sigact.org/q/6651 would be even shorter than that, and much more professional-looking... May 20 '11 at 20:44
• @Jukka, one could have j.mp/cstheory?6651, but your suggestions are better, maybe you should post the request for a general shorter URL for SE network to MetaSO. :) May 20 '11 at 22:24
