coord.ch redirects no longer work

You want to get involved in the Opencaching Network?
Mr.Yuck

Site down! This was first reported to us at opencaching.us by one of our users. It was very useful, does anyone know what happened, or know the owner? The WHOIS records don't seem to have an expiration date listed, which is strange. I have attempted to contact the owner via email, but it's been about a week, and no response.

coord.ch is an URL-shortening-service from gc-user "dunkleaura".
His telegram account is @Dunkleaura
I was in contact with him september 10th, and he said he will
fix this problem in 4-6 weeks, so just relax and drink tea meanwhile :-)

telegram? You mean Twitter? If so, tweets are protected unless he approves you. But I'll not bother him, your answer is good enough for me. Thank you!

No, I mean Telegram.
I send him the link of this thread,
maybe he participates...

I think Telegram is a European thing, never heard of it.  :D

I was reminded by one of our users at opencaching.us that he has missed the "6 weeks" goal!

[url=http://coord.eu/]http://coord.eu/[/url] is an alternate redirect service currently operated by Opencaching Romania for some time now, experimentally. Feel free to use it.

The project is open source here: https://github.com/opencaching/oc_coord and may be set up on multiple sites and used in a DNS round-robin fashion. If you want to host a copy, please let me know.
Please post any issues at Github.

It will also be documented here, as well, in the near future: https://wiki.opencaching.eu/index.php?title=Main_Page

Currently it redirects Opencaching and Geokrety waypoints, because coord.info handles Groundspeak waypoints and duplicating it doesn't make sense.

Of course it makes sense!
Now I have to remember two different URLs,
but when http://coord.eu/GC7FQT2 works
then I will only use coord.eu for everything (OC, GC, GK...)  :P

GC redirect can easily be implemented.

I too would like to see GC-redirects implemented. Then this redirecter would be the "death star" in our OC-toolbox and coord.info put into the garbage-can of my mind.

That simple can it be? If everything on earth could be managed in such constructive, fast ways, the world would be a nicer place. Thanks a lot andrixnet_ro for this redirector! I'll do advertizing it as best I can.
Kind regards from nothernmost Germany.

http://coord.eu redirector service is up and running, already co-hosted by 3 OC sites: OCRO, OCNL, OCUS.

Enjoy.

Feedback welcome.
