Background: I am late to the party many times, but still interested in past discussions. When I see a link to a topic I am interested in I try to follow it even when it is stale. However it is a hassle to try and find archived discussion on talk pages.
Solution: When a BOT archives an old discussiion all pages that have a link to the discussion will be changed by the BOT to reflect the archived URL.
