Great! Thanks for setting up a bridge. :)

Yes, bridgedb divides bridges up into different distribution
strategies, and one of those strategies is to give them out by
https://bridges.torproject.org/. For those bridges, it further divides
them up by where on the Internet you're coming from (for ipv4, it
divides by /16. For ipv6, I don't know what bitmask it picks).

So it is not surprising that you wouldn't find your own bridge on
https://bridges.torproject.org/ -- you are very likely not on an IP
address that would map to your bridge.

You can search for your nickname or identity fingerprint on

If you allow javascript, atlas even sends your browser some javascript
that hashes the fingerprint before your browser sends it to atlas, so
atlas never learns the fingerprint (onionoo only stores a hashed version
of bridge identity fingerprints, since if you know the fingerprint,
you can ask the bridge authority for the bridge descriptor and learn
everything else about it).

(If you don't allow javascript, that's fine too -- you send your actual
bridge identity fingerprint to atlas, which hashes it and then discards
the original.)

It looks promising!
