Disambiguation

Updated 4 months and 8 hours ago


When visiting an omg.lol address, you might encounter a page that tells you that “This URL could point to multiple places.” Don’t panic! This just means that there’s something to see in multiple places, and you get to choose which one you’d like to see. This happens whenever multiple things share the same name.

For example, @foo might have a PURL set up at foo.url.lol/hello that goes to a nice web page somewhere, but they might also have a pastebin entry at foo.paste.lol/hello that has some great information. If you visit foo.omg.lol/hello, we wouldn’t want to guess which one of those that you’d want to see, so we display a disambiguation page so you can make the choice yourself.
