"This article or section uses citations that link to broken or outdated sources, and are deemed unreliable" Is this accurate? My understanding was that broken links are still considered reliable. See [1] "do not remove the inactive reference, but rather record the date that the original link was found to be inactive — even inactive, it still records the sources that were used, and it is possible hard copies of such references may exist, or alternatively that the page will turn up in the near future in the Internet Archive, which deliberately lags by six months or more. When printed sources become outdated, scholars still routinely cite those works when referenced." AndrewRT(Talk) 23:58, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Inline pendant[edit]

I feel that there should also be an inline version which could be appended to each item which includes a broken link. __meco (talk) 08:29, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

There is, see {{dead link}}. —AlanBarrett (talk) 11:57, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
