Hi OWN Team - and also Marketing Team - guys,

I've had something on my mind lately. I'm wondering if I should consult
with Jan-Simon and Sascha directly, and -marketing list is the right
place to post this topic or not, but I considered we have to share this

As you can see, 2 shortened URLs are used in Weekly News ATM.

- Statistics - Bugzilla - "Detailed Bugzilla Report"

IMHO, we shouldn't use tinyurl in Wiki pages.

There is not tiniest reason to use them :-)
[http://extremely-3-rows-long-URL Description]

BTW, existing tinies should be replaced with originals.
