There are 367 results for url:"*uk2.php*". It's currently dead. The only necessary thing is, to delete uk2 subdomain, which works pretty fine. Please help me to clean them.

It may even be permanently dead; it's no longer on the list of mirrors. –  Jeremy Banks Nov 13 '11 at 11:51

While you're at it, don't forget not to only change the link, but see if the post needs some editin' love too. –  slhck Nov 13 '11 at 11:53
    
Not you... me. That's a tag I created (well, Anna told me about it). –  Time Traveling Bobby Nov 13 '11 at 12:00

I think best it to omit the uk2 or us2 and leave only php.net[original URL] isn't it? From what I saw, I'm being redirected to the proper sub domain. –  Shadow Wizard Nov 13 '11 at 12:02
    
@Asylum: Uff, in that case, sorry, I didn't get the edit reason :) –  genesis Nov 13 '11 at 12:03
    
@ShadowWizard: Currently uk2 is down for a long time and no redirections are being added –  genesis Nov 13 '11 at 12:04

genesis that's not my point.. I mean it's better not to "hard code" the sub domain as we can't rely on it to exist. us2 might be down too tomorrow for all I know. –  Shadow Wizard Nov 13 '11 at 12:05
    
No problem, I should/could have been a little bit clearer, too. :) –  Time Traveling Bobby Nov 13 '11 at 12:05
    
@ShadowWizard: Okay, I have edited the question before, to delete the subdomain completely, and I'll do so –  genesis Nov 13 '11 at 12:13
    
I'm working on this now... –  The Unhandled Exception Nov 13 '11 at 14:11

@TheUnhandledException: thanks for the fix on my answer. The problem clearly stems from the sub-domains appearing in search results for doc pages — others, like myself, would have just copied/pasted the URLs. Good to see the community fixing these dead links. +1 to the OP. –  Andy E Nov 13 '11 at 14:32

No problem @Andy! I upvoted a few of your answers, too. This meta question may be good to you :) –  The Unhandled Exception Nov 13 '11 at 14:45

399 links to uk3.php.net, 1,598 links to us3.php.net and 2,025 links to us2.php.net if anyone is crazy and bored enough. –  NullUserException อ_อ Nov 13 '11 at 17:41
    
@NullUserExceptionอ_อ And also 305 ca3.php.net, 256 ca2.php.net I believe they have server in a lot of country –  HoLyVieR Nov 13 '11 at 17:57
    
@NullUserExceptionอ_อ I might be crazy enough but sadly have to work today :-p Those aren't broken however, right? (At least not yet) –  The Unhandled Exception Nov 14 '11 at 14:52

Okay, fueled up with some food

I didn't actually eat this

I am ready to continue on with this quest!

FYI I have 50 questions per page in my search result and I am working off page two. I seem to be colliding with nulluserexception quite a bit all of a sudden.

Back at it now. It looks like between NullUserException, HoLyVieR, Mat, and myself, all of these have been corrected! **Thanks guys!

Time for lunch now. I think I'll make a sandwich.

Yummy

I think my arteries clogged just looking at that. Looks delicious. ;) –  Anna Lear Nov 13 '11 at 16:18
    
@AnnaLear haha, same here :-) note the tooltip, what I actually ate for breakfast was far less interesting or meme-filled. However I have eaten a fried chicken waffle sandwich before and can arrest to the deliciousness! –  The Unhandled Exception Nov 13 '11 at 16:24

I fixed 119 of them links; I also sprinkled in some minor edits to the same posts. Did I just win? –  NullUserException อ_อ Nov 13 '11 at 17:25
    
@AnnaLear All the poutine must've been more than enough training for your heart ;) –  Lorem Ipsum Nov 13 '11 at 17:28

@NullUserExceptionอ_อ You are #1 in the edits this week. I think so. –  HoLyVieR Nov 13 '11 at 17:32

@NullUserExceptionอ_อ: looks like it's complete. I could use some of that waffle horror right now. With some maple syrup. And ice cream. And a cherry on top, maybe, for the style of it. –  Mat Nov 13 '11 at 17:33
    
@HoLyVieR I was expecting that to totally flood the main page because of the bumps, but I am not seeing that. Hmmmm... –  NullUserException อ_อ Nov 13 '11 at 17:34
