Private Links

by /u/captainsensible · 1 votes · 2 weeks ago

I occasionally run into people (Reddit, online,...) who are frustrated trying to access Dread via public link and ask if anyone has a private link. Just curious what the protocol is for handing out private links. My sense is that these people are legit new users (i.e. not the infamous DDOSer) and I was just curious if handing out a private link to these noobs is OK?

Pretty much just message me for a link or we have an extra private link in the premium subdread. I don't care much about sharing links at this point because we have mostly overcome the attack and the main link is almost perfectly stable at this time.

Hug, do you plan to keep all of the private links running regardless of Dread's stability?

For the time being, we will probably disable them with some warning once PoW is running stable on the network, it reduces the chances of phishing to keep the links minimal, or down to just the main address if possible.

Looks to me like dreadytofatroptsdj6io7l3xptbet6onoyno2yv7jicoxknyazubrad.onion is down right now?

No running perfectly fine, you may need to use a new circuit sometimes. I've just sent you a private link anyway.

How does one go about getting a private link? I'm not on here much anymore so probably don't need it, but do you just hand them out?

You da man, Hug. Or da woman, I'm not sure :)
