Yeah, fake news is more brownish. Red, on the other hand, universally means warning. We wanted to warn people that the Facebook page, as of yesterday, was still spitting out omniurl.tk links, which now redirects to a parking page full of weird stuff, which is a verifiable claim.

As for the virus claim, DJ_O's antivirus went haywire when he clicked those links, so it probably means there's a virus there, which made him write this news so nobody would be fooled.

Is there a way we could reclaim the omni‌url.tk domain?

Yes. If you guys have a Namecheap account I can share it to you, I think.

I meant omniurl. Blame the censor :P

I was asking if we could reclaim it somehow, so at least the links that've been posted won't lead to scams.

Do we have a bot or script to go through the past posts to remove the offending links?

On the forums, omni url is censored to ourl.ca. On Facebook, admins still need to remove them manually one by one, though. As for IRC logs, they went offline months ago so in short terms I guess that won't matter for them.

Nice to see you again by the way :D

Aren't tk domains free anyway? I use that to shorten urls sometimes.

They're free, but they're instable and you must keep a number of views a month or else they'll expire.

It depends. If I remember, there are paid ones. Free ones had pop ups if I remember

dot.tk domains?  :banghead: never

some years ago, when I started programming websites, I did a online code generator tool for a social network (using .tk domain)

the site has grown a lot in a short time, received hundreds of visits per day, but one day without explanation dot.tk team suspended the site domain and placed there a page of advertising

after 2/3 weeks, I managed to retrieve the domain, but lost many visitors...
