Default Small URLs for the F13 Alpha release

I made up some tracking links for use in status reports like
Identi.ca, Facebook, Twitter, and other places you might want a short
URL:

http://is.gd/a2gnQ
http://bit.ly/c7fvDN
http://tinyurl.com/yemn9bj

These all evaluate out to:

http://fedoraproject.org/get-prerelease?stF13a

I added the line for 'st', status reports for microblogging and other
services, to the link tracking page here:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Link_tracking

I realize that websites@ may need to ultimately address this, but just
in case i'm missing something:

Am I the only one that thinks the prominent F12 artwork on the F13
download page is potentially misleading and/or confusing?

Stripping link tracker, heh.

There is supposed to be a F13 Alpha banner, a few of which were
created here:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F13_Artwork#Alpha_Release_Banner

I'll see about getting one installed now. If it's the wrong one, we
can fix it later, but I don't think anyone's particularly concerned
about which is used.

The websites team beat me to it. If you forcibly reload the page (or
clear cache, etc.) you should see it.

Yeah it appears the 12 logo is in the HTML rendered to the browser but
then there's some fancy javascript magic to show you 12 upon
window.onload

http://fedoraproject.org/static/js/banner.js

Thanks!

Now the only question is -- is there some cool javascript thingie we
could add to our blogs to start displaying the pre-release banners?

I hate to be "that guy" but AFAIK none of those shortening services are
Free as in Freedom (FaiF).

A couple that are FaiF are:

http://2tu.us
&
http://ur1.ca

Both are Licensed Under the GNU General Public License Version 3.

Again sorry to be Bearded Free Software Hippie, but as Popeye the Sailor
Man always said "I ams what I ams"

Martin:

You can put the pic up and make it clickable with out javascript.

<a href="http://fedoraproject.org/get-prerelease"><img
src="https://fedoraproject.org/static/images/banners/f13alpha.png"></a>

Would do it, but you should save the picture and host it somewhere else
(deep linking is often hated)
