An Idea: URL Shortening

Eladkse June 9, 2011 User blog:Eladkse

Hey everyone,

I recently discovered the wonders of URL shortening sites like and and found them brilliant for linking to articles with rather long URLs. This morning I had a brainwave: why not have a customised URL shortening tool for Wikia?

It could be a special page on each wiki that allows the user to enter the article url or name, and then the page shortens it to a url like wik.ia/t83nfhg6 ready to be used on social sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Tell me what you think below, and if any staff are reading this, do you think it would be feasable?
