Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm trying out this new feature and I noticed in this question:

One of the links in the Linked section is:

Which gives a page-not-found.

Maybe that page was moved here.. i dunno. But the link shouldn't be broken.

Technically it isn't broken, as the page still exists.

The only caveat is that you have to have over 10k rep points to see it.

I vouch for those links to be kept, may be only shown to the people that can see the content.

What's the point of showing me a link to something I cannot see? I can't even tell if it's because I don't have enough rep or because it's simply non-existent... – Assaf Lavie Apr 26 '10 at 17:33
If only I could upvote a comment multiple times... – Pops Apr 26 '10 at 18:01
It's more tricky than that. The post does exist, but has been moved here on meta, and the system knows that.. It could simply send a permanent redirect to here instead of the 404. – Andreas Bonini Apr 26 '10 at 19:27
@Kop / @Assaf - yup, see my respective long standing feature-request, which fortunately has now been implemented as of June 04/2010. Given this the bug at hand should have been tagged status-completed as well, but unfortunately the Stack Exchange team doesn't really appear to maintain their issue queues ... – Steffen Opel Sep 29 '10 at 9:13

Linked questions are cleaned up every 30 days, and also any time anything in the question is edited; so just be patient and these deleted linked items will be removed over time.

should linked questions also be cleaned up if they still exist, but were mentioned in deleted comments? If yes, then you might want to have a look at Questions not removed from “Linked” when comments are deleted, which shows linked questions from comments that were deleted Friday January 14th (about 35 days ago today). – Arjan Feb 18 '11 at 11:41
