Wikimedia URL Shortener
Hello Meta admins,
I just wanted to let you know about a feature that will be released on April 11th on Meta: the Wikimedia URL Shortener.
I'd like to raise your attention especially on the possibility that people would create huge series of URLs in a row (for example, in order to get the URL that they want for a specific link, since the character string of the URLs are created incrementally). In order to avoid this issue, we set up a rate limit of 50 creations every 2 minutes for logged-in users, and 10 creations every 2 minutes for IPs, but there is still the possibility that people try to overcome this limit by writing a script or a bot.
