What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Two of the attribution requirements in the data dumps are:

2. Hyperlink directly to the original question on the source site (e.g., http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12345)
4. Hyperlink each author name directly back to their user profile page on the source site (e.g., http://stackoverflow.com/users/12345/username)

This is impossible (without violating the spirit of the requirements) for failed sites like Gadgets, as there's nowhere to link.

It's probably fine in this case to link back to the proposal:
