While going through several answers and comments I found that several of those have dead links for example This Answer have A link and this is a comment link etc.

Like for answer we can edit them. But what should we mention there? And comment can't even be edited. So what should be done for this?

1 Answer 1


For comments flag as Obsolete or use Other and briefly describe what is wrong with that comment.

For answers:

if you gained edit privileges try to find a working replacement link - if you can't find one consider editing and removing the link + add what you've done to the edit summary.

if you do not have edit privileges - suggest an edit ( if you can find a working link) or flag for moderators attention and explain what is wrong.

    Or just suggest an edit if I don't have edit privileges?
