Dead links on the big list

    I ran the big list through a tool which checks whether links are still valid. Incidentally, the tool is made by an OG and is called Xenu.

    According to the tool there are currently 147 links which are dead, although I am not 100% sure they are all on the big list or whether they are on the entire wikia area.

    Do we want to maintain the list and replce dead links for example with the webarchive version? I am not sure. I made a post on the big list thread itself, to be able to discuss that.

    However, I did want to at least copy the list in case people do want to pick this up.

    So here it is:

    The tool may also be picking up URLs within html comments on the page that mention links that died.

    I attempted to edit the raw output from the tool to cover for such events. I'm not 100% but the above links appear to be legit dead links. The Youtube videos for example are either removed or set to private.

    Going over the list with my linkchecker I get 146, I'll put them in code here so the youtube links don't become embeds which loses the important timecodes from the original links:

    Quite a few are pages that have just moved within sites, such as WWP posts/threads, so better to find the right links for them before going to the wayback machine.
    Also, many names have multiple links, and I only put the dead ones next to each name, so there's no need to panic about this affecting the entries on the list at all.

    Great stuff!
    Just a note that we want the links to point as close to the beginning of content as possible, and as much of the content as possible directly (finding anchor IDs, print versions, and non-paywalled content is best), so here are how some of the new URLs I went with changed:
    This turns out to be a duplicate of already linked for his entry, so I just kept the original.

    Also I make it a practise now after finding/visiting a link of speaking out, I then prefix the URL with:
    (for example: )
    then going to that new address forces the wayback machine to store a copy of the webpage which will eventually show up at the webarchive for future resurrection if need be.
    I wish I'd been doing this right from the start of the big list.

    WWP, sometimes I love you.

    I'd already replaced it with versions of the original but I've now added that link into a html comment for each as a "Mirror" link in case it's needed.
    I actually had been adding mirror links throughout the wiki sauce before, and I should've checked it when listing all the dead links, because the geocities mirror for John Randall McDonald was already there.. oops! :oops:
  16. Incredulicide Member

    and here are the ones that just never got archived by the wayback machine.
    All other non-video links from earlier posts have been resurrected.

    The names with no other links besides the broken ones from the above list are:
