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

e.g. Jon's first link in

Bad Link Answer

I have added a comment but not found the correct link yet.

If you can edit it with a correct one, then I would do so... If the link is bad, and the correct one cannot be determined, I'd edit the question/answer and note that the URL was not working as of MM/DD/YYYY...

I would also add a comment to the question/answer informing the poster that there was an issue with the link (you can do this regardless of ability to edit)...
