I heard about a recent case of a relevant domain being squatted, and figured that the people who buy up domains then sell them at a markup might start to notice the growth of interest in AI x-risk and claim some domains which would otherwise host good projects. I've bought the following, and will make them available for use by anyone in the x-risk community.

This cost ~$200 of personal funds for the first year, and closer to $500/y going forward as the onboarding discounts wear off. I estimate saving one or two wanted domains from being squatted and the hassle / cost of acquiring it or moving to a worse domain would make this worthwhile for several years, so this seems probably positive EV.
The main downside risk would be from people who want these domains not knowing they're available, so I have forwarded all of these domains to my home page. Hopefully people who want them will check there to track me down and request them. This is not perfect, but seems better than waiting for them to be sniped.
If you would like to list your own available relevant domains in the comments that would be welcome, I'll add them to this post and the EA Forum cross-post.
I will point them towards the servers of anyone who claims to have a half decent plan for the domain, and hand over the domain fully if they build something which seems useful.
so I have forwarded all of these domains to my home page
On my end this does not appear to be working.
Also, nice work.
Yep, I noticed this and edited in:
Edit: Most (but not all! despite apparently identical settings!) of the redirects are not currently functioning. Will look into and fix.
Edit: Fixed, thanks to the helpful people at alignment.dev, a place for programmers who want to help with alignment related projects.
I got https://www.pinkshoggoth.com/ inspired by Pink Shoggoths: What does alignment look like in practice?
Right now it's hosting a side project (that may wind up being replaced by new ChatGPT features). Feel free to DM me if you have a better use for it though!
