Create redirect to Meta portal
Closed, ResolvedPublic



As part of the movement strategy process, I'd like to request a subdomain redirect to the main portal on Meta. The redirect will be used in communications like videos and therefore a short and simple link is preferable.

Redirect to be created:
Target of the redirect:

I know there were some concerns about using numeric subdomains a few years ago for Wikipedia 15. Since was used in the end, and since this is for and not, I'm hoping that this request won't be problematic. We've come to consensus on this redirect and I'd prefer not to go through too many cycles of discussions.

Let me know if there is anything else I can provide.

Event Timeline

Hi everyone, I have a video ready to go to promote this new URL, and will be going on paternity leave in (possibly under) a month. It would be nice if this could be a priority so that we can get the video out before then :) If anyone wants to see the cut, email me and i can share a password-protected vimeo link.

Adding the SRE tag that was missing from this. We have a bit of a time constraint in that we'd need confirmation as soon as possible that this address is feasible, and that it can be set up by March 9.
