Is there any way to flag links on a game page for deletion?
There are a lot of dead links around (I noticed a fairly big group of them on the Heroscape page.), and it would be nice if they could be removed.
I appreciate your thoughts on this.

On any game's main page, there's a "Submit Corrections" link in the top right corner.

That would be using the other section, right?
I've never used that before. I always though that was for the game description.
Thanks.

Having recently reported a dead link using the "submit correction" button, I can attest that it works. Just write a short message in the box for reporting "other problems".

A feature that let's you report dead links directly would be nice, but I suppose it doesn't rank very high on Aldie's priority list for the site.

I have put an item about editing of link submissions on the Admin To-Do list, and it is something I plan to bring up with Alide the next time I talk to him. For now, Submit Corrections can cover any corrections that are necessary that are within an admin's powers.
