What shall we do with dead links? This problem particularly affects tags - e.g. https://fsfe.org/tags/tagged-helsinki_openoffice.en.html

In this particular example, I’ll just remove the tag entirely. Is this applicable on a wider scale?

I think the point is not the tag, but that the event has a link which is now broken. I’m not sure whether we want to remove the link from the event in such cases, since the whole event entry is only there for historical purposes.

+1 to deleting the tag altogether

Removing the link doesn’t make much sense to me, unless there is an obvious replacement. These are very old events and I don’t think we need to support them forever.

Sorry, this doesn’t make sense to me.

On https://fsfe.org/events/2012/index.de.html, the events are listed, and they link to the page which meanwhile is offline. Removing the tag will only stop us from listing the event on our tag pages, but not from linking the event to a dead page.

Would you also delete the “libreoffice” and “berlin” tags which contain the same broken link?

Sorry that I didn’t make my point clear. I don’t want to delete the tag because the link is broken. I don’t find the tag helsinki_openoffice useful for a visitor.
