On Whonix forums and wiki, should links go to clearnet or onion address (if available)?
Onion because it’s onion + Whonix is a torrified OS.
Clearnet because it’s less phishable.
(Add to: Kicksecure ™ Forums Usage Instructions, Best Practices and FAQ)
I can think of a couple issues with using a onion address instead of clearnet.
- Not all forum and wiki visitors use Whonix/Tor. ( Think first time visitor- Whonix curious? )
- A Whonix user may visit the wiki/forum to troubleshoot for an inoperable system. They may have to use a clearnet browser.
I think when it comes to Best Practices onion would be the choice. Another thought, would it be plausible to have both clearnet and onion when available? I know it would be a pain in the …
Right. Ideally, forum could send users that arrive via onion to leave via onion links and same with clearnet.
Or maybe best left to clients to implement:
Forcing Onion Connections on whonix.org
That’s the only thing we can do anyhow. Clearnet links by default and leaving
onionization to users.
