Welcome to Kikstart.Me.UK - a homebrew URL forwarding service that was put together for homebrew game reviews!
Kikstart.Me.UK - formerly Kikstart.EU - came about for three fairly abstract reasons - the first was because I wasn't keen on using third party forwarding for reviews in Retro Gamer since there was always a chance that whoever was running the service would begin to add annoying adverts or perhaps worse. Secondly, it was a good excuse to get my head around writing the PHP code behind a forwarder - the logic behind catching the URLs seemed fairly simple but you never know if these things are going to fly until you try them.
And finally, there was an offer to get an .EU domain for a quid and this was literally the best excuse I could think up for buying one... it's not that I'm collecting domain suffixes or anything! That's backfired a little since EurID's rules meant that Brexit invalidates my ownership of said domain so a new home was required. Still, the migration was an excuse to rewrite the back end and fix some issues that PHP5 caused.
