Broken External Links

Go To

Apr 8th 2013 at 2:05:49 PM

Many, many links are killed in the process of the internet changing. Videos are removed, made private, blocked, or simply lost. Please post any links that are dead here and explain what the original video was about and where it was linked to. We will then have contributors look for a suitable replace for the link so that examples stay intact.

Seems like a good idea to me.

I'll holler to get this moved to Long Term Efforts, though, since it will see more attention than in Trope Talk.

Sounds good. I forgot about that forum section, but it'll be nice if the mods agrees that it's worth being a long-term project.

In Take a Third Option, in the webcomic's section, there is supposed to be a link to the page's image. It's a comic from Personality Test. The bad link is http://www.chickennation.com/comics/archive/personality-quiz/

Maybe we should retitle this thread something on the order of "Broken External Links" ?

[up] Yeah... the title seems like this thread is about redirect farming, not fixing broken links.

On a more on-topic note, the AwesomeMusic.Anime pages need a lot of fixing, since the opening and ending theme links rarely last long.

If I see any such links, what should I do? GO here, and/or delete the link?

Found a link on this trope that connects with a audio file that I must download. What's wrong with a video?

List it here AND Move the dead link to the discussion page with a note that it should not be restored to the main page unless the link is live, please.

The "moments"(Tear Jerker, Funny, Awesome, ect) pages for ML Ps non-canon stuff is littered with them, mostly due to people linking to copies on image boards instead of more static copies on places like DA. Someone that knows what all the entries are referring to should get in there and try to fix it.

Sorry, I didn't even know where to begin linking on this one because the whole family of pages is screwed right now.

May 19th 2013 at 7:55:51 PM

Fun, I'll start working on it.

Tearjerker: Real Life

Here is one dead link from The Woman in White:

The musical adaptation provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Marian. Good GOD, Marian. In the book, she's described as being ugly and masculine. In the musical, she's this. The tradeoff, however, is that she's still considered undesirable, except this time it's due to being a Christmas Cake in her late thirties rather than young and ugly.

Adding Adaptational Attractiveness as a whole to the thread, here's a few I pulled that need either fixed, or re-written to remove the borken links:

[up] All of the links in the Mario example work fine for me, and the Pokémon ones have basic hotlink protection that can be circumvented by clicking the URL and pressing Enter.

May 25th 2013 at 1:21:59 PM

They came up as forbidden for me the first time, sorry. and if you have to circumvent something to get to it, it should still be replaced just for ease of use.
