Who wants to get to their favorite gaming website via its traditional url? Nobody.
But how to pick a redirect? How to know you’re using the best redirect for you? And exactly how many sites lead back to Waypoint anyway? I don’t know the answers to these questions, but I know where to start: A Comprehensive List of URLs that Redirect to waypoint.vice.com. I’ll start with all the ones I can remember, post the ones I missed below and I’ll add them to the list (Please make a note if it links somewhere other than the main page):
Can’t bear to choose? @James made site for you: http://whereiswaypoint.info

Are games art?
discourse.zone Direct Link to Forums
.ws (Works in forum now!) Direct Link to articles by Patrick Klepek
goblin.zone Direct Link to Forums
hottake.club Direct Link to Forums
mario.nipples.zone Keeps the redirect as the active address
pubgtips.info pubgtips.info/tips Goes to C. Kunzelman article on PUBG
Full Disclosure: enders.zone is my redirect
We actually are keeping one over on the Fan Discord, although some of these are new to me! (enders.zone, really?). Here are some you missed:
Yeah. The original intent was to have it link to all of the articles about giant robots, but the Team doesn’t appear to have any hard rules about tagging posts, so it just goes to the main page.
Thanks for the links!
Don't let my "really" get you down, I think it's a great redirect! It totally caught me by surprise. We'll cross-pollinate it to the Discord link

Just verified that AverageBomb.Com redirects to Waypoint as well
enders.zone is so good I wish I'd bought it myself
Thanks! Added to the list.
It's all getting a bit confusing. This should help:
Better add mine as well
daaaang. is this open source? I would love to write a way for people to submit their own URLs (as well as keeping the list up to date if things expire).
I threw it together really quickly - I haven't even made a git repo for it or anything yet. I'm not a proper coder at all. I was thinking of just moving the URL list to GitHub so that people can submit stuff to it, though. It's just a plaintext file.
OK, it's on GitHub now: https://github.com/thejamesm/whereiswaypoint
Currently it gets the files directly from GitHub, so people can submit changes that way. That way it's publicly accessible but can be vetted for vandalism. I guess it's kind of intimidating if you're unfamiliar with it, though.
Anyway, changes can be submitted here: https://github.com/thejamesm/whereiswaypoint/blob/master/list.txt
will it ever stop growing....
bonus podcast where austin spends an hour reading out all the different urls in an asmr voice
Assuming an average of these urls costing $10 per year, I think we are at $300 per year spent on urls. Great work team.
Is this how monitization works?
(I briefly killed my thing by being quite inept. I hope nobody noticed.)
Grabbing this list that we keep updated on the fan discord server:
Disclosure: poppliopals.moe is my redirect
waypoint.arf.dog is my new favorite URL now, thanks @James for building this
