--- Comment #4 from Kai Engert <k...@kuix.de> ---
Hello. The domain name isn't that important.

The important benefit is shortening the right hand side of URLs, which can
easily be more than 50 characters.

(I'd propose that one single domain gets used for anything related to wikipedia
and wikmedia, but it might be a good idea to implement a whitelist the domains
that are related (preventing unrelated URLs to be shortened).)

In order to unblock this task, let's simply pick one that's reasonable short
(less than 10 characters) and makes some sense.

Did you say you are already in possession of the "wmfsl.org" domain?
What does "sl" mean? Would that be appropriate for other wikipedia content,
too?

Here is another proposal, that contains the generic word "url", gives an
indication to wikipedia/wikimedia in general, without pointing to "foundation"
in particular:

wikurl.org

(domain available at time of typing this comment, and cheap, let's be quick to
register if you like this idea. I'd be glad to register this for you, but I
guess it's better if the wiki* organization registers it right away.)

Thanks for helping to push this forward!
