> Spacehey's unofficial random blogroll is ready! <



Hey!
I did something!

And it's a website !

More precisely, it is a blogroll. You can enter your profile url, update your profile with the super secret magic string, and click the submit button in order to be added to a brand new and totally unofficial blogroll!

From now on, every time someone will click on the *my super long website url*/random url, he will have a chance to be redirected to your profile!

Go on the project's main page to get started!

(The website is running on my own tiny server, I don't register anything beside the url.
The source code of the project is available here
but don't look at it because is it really ugly)

Edit: I just noticed that Nein MC just had the same idea as I was already working on it :P

Edit2 (28/01/2021): just updated the design & added a small faq!

@Heavyoak: If you read the code for the button you can spot the first line is this :



/* from https://jdan.github.io/98.css/ by https://spacehey.com/jordan */



The button is taken from the amazing 98.css design system, created by jordan :)

axeface is no longer available, at least not at the old URL that is still in your blogroll.

Well I guess there is now two methods for discovering random profiles on spacehey :P

@clive: I pasted your profile link inside the input, clicked on the button and it worked. Welcome in the blogroll :)

This is so brilliant! I put the code in my blurb and tried to add it, but got an error -- maybe the server is temporarily hung? I'll try later ... super cool!

Thanks Nein MC :)

The big interest for an external service is that inactive people in spacehey won't register themselves on the blogroll, and so the blogroll will link only to profile of those who read that post or clicked the "about" link on a profile :)

Oh, this is genius! I can't claim I had the same idea though, the thought to add it externally didn't even occur to me :P
