Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about how our service works.

I run this service for fun in my spare time, so I really don’t want to have to spend my time removing inappropriate content — please use your best judgement.

Some examples of content that’s not allowed include: Spam, Pornography / Explicit Content, Hate Speech, Phishing / Scams, and Illegal Content.
Each time a user clicks on your generated link, there is a 50% chance that they will be rickrolled (or whatever probability you defined).

However, once someone has been rickrolled by a particular link, they will not be rickrolled by that link again during the same browser session if they click on it again.
Yes! The service detects if a link is being accessed by a crawler (e.g. Slack, Facebook, Twitter) and ensures that the destination URL’s metadata is shown.

Your recipients will see where the link is supposed to send them, but won’t know if they’ll be rickrolled or not until they click!
I’m not a jerk, so I’m not interested in using people’s data in ways that I shouldn’t. The only personal information I collect is IP addresses, which I use to prevent spam.

Beyond that, I use Google Analytics to see how many people are using the site, Google reCAPTCHA to stop bots, and Google AdSense to hopefully make just enough revenue per year to cover my hosting fees.

I also set a cookie when you get rickrolled by a link so that the same link doesn’t rickroll you again during the same browser session.
I’d love to hear from you! Feel free to email me at to connect.
