WhoWhatWhen
Somebody2JAA: nice info on gsfn.us; I think a good tinytown project would be the https://getsatisfaction.com/t/{shortcode} URL template. [01:07]
JAAWow. I just came across makeashorterlink.com on an ArchiveBot job. They use links like http://makeashorterlink.com/?V22D12544 , i.e. 2-3 times as long as the average link shortener. It's down currently, but apparently it's related to TinyURL: https://tinyurl.com/preview.php?site=masl&num=W1F632474 [10:32]
It's worth mentioning that their sites don't use lower-case codes consistently. For example, https://latam.kaspersky.com/blog/stop-doing-that-online/7851/ uses the short URL https://kas.pr/xSk4 , but https://kas.pr/xsk4 also works. Their Twitter accounts seem to *mostly* use lower-char codes, but not consistently. Still, scanning the lower-case codes should be sufficient. [12:35]
There are also some longer codes, like http://skfb.ly/mki3fe1d0 and http://skfb.ly/mki3fe1c, but I didn't see many of those. [15:13]
E.g. on this blog: https://aimtoillustrate.blogspot.com/ [15:14]
TIL the tracker limits each IP address to one concurrent item/claim per project: https://github.com/ArchiveTeam/terroroftinytown/blob/master/terroroftinytown/tracker/model.py#L587 . Nice! [20:33]
