There is a link on a recently updated answer here to a DE query, which now leads to 404 page.

Does finding the new location of this query page lead to a secret badge of infinite sparkliness?

Not sure where that link came from, but looks like it suffers from link rot.

SEDE has changed somewhat since that link was posted - I have updated the link to point to what appears to be the same query, but using a valid link.

Yeah, that's odd. I'm not sure why that saved query wouldn't have been migrated. Most historic saved query links (example) should redirect to the new URLs. – Tim Stone Sep 22 '13 at 19:28
@TimStone - I took a look at the query with ID 885 which appears to be something completely different. Possibly an issue with backups. – Oded Sep 22 '13 at 19:45
Yeah, that ID corresponds to a now-defunct object type. There's a mapping table that handles the redirections, but I guess there's no entry for the one the OP was referencing. – Tim Stone Sep 23 '13 at 0:46
