Might be a little early to ask -- https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/6-gamefaqs-announcements/76238326 -- but will all the bookmarks I have for topics and forums redirect to the new gamefaqs.gamespot.com equivalents?

e.g., will www.gamefaqs.com/boards/6-/76238326 redirect to https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/6-/76238326 ?

Will they redirect forever?

There are links to GameFAQs all over the Internet. It's already sad enough that there have been breaking URL changes without permanent redirection. Now that GameFAQs itself archives topics, it will have a history of intra-site links that can be broken.

"gamefaqs.com" has been in use for over 20 years, it's not like they're gonna let the domain expire just because they moved. They will keep it up as a permanent redirect infinitely (or until they decide to unmerge from Gamespot again).

Keeping the domain as a redirect is not the same as keeping the redirector for individual links. It may one day just redirect to the main GameFAQs page.

There's no real reason to turn off the redirector once it's up, but then again, that kind of thing still happens. It'd be nice to have an official statement. Past GameFAQs URL changes haven't exactly been friendly to historical links.

The redirects will continue to work indefinitely.

I will let out a celebratory "Woo" ... but I will withhold the "hoo" out of precautionary cynicism.
