Today, I saw some guys try to edit some questions with the link not found? What should I do in this case? For example for the answer: What are the side effects of disable a core module? (e.g. Mage_Rss / Mage_Log)

I saw these kinds of edits as well, probably the same user. My approach:

  • try to find the right link (often the content is still online but on a different URL). The archive.org wayback machine helps
  • if no success, link to the cached version from archive.org directly
  • if I would not find anything there as well, I'd remove the link. If the answer had no value without the link, delete it
  • if it was an image, upload and embed the image instead of linking the external source
  • Thanks! :) It takes time if we try to review for this case. Dec 14, 2016 at 12:11
