Campaign!

G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

Are you talking about internal links to redirect pages? Double redirects? I'm a little confused.

She's talking about external links.

Oh, I understand. Yeah, a bot can do that. The best way to do it would be to have the bot add a template like (broken link) next to a broken external link, which would link to and add the page to a category called "Pages with broken external links."

that would be a great thing. Then we could remove the links or try to find other cites.

How does it know that they're broken?

        try:
            urllib2.urlopen(url)
        except urllib2.HTTPError, err:
            if err.code == 404 or err.code == 400:

I hope you know Python.

Basically the Python URL module can raise HTML error codes, and the ones we're looking for are 404 (Not Found) and 400 (Bad Request).
