InternetArchiveBot sometimes marking edits as live when they're clearly dead
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The problematic edit is this one:
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Caught_in_a_Trap_and_I_Can%27t_Back_Out_%27Cause_I_Love_You_Too_Much,_Baby&diff=903345730&oldid=879392874

Both the links in that diff are very much dead. I can't fix them in the management console either ... it says it can't find them (either with or without the ":80").

@Graham87 unrelated question, how is the interface working for you. Does it need any accessibility improvements?

The links are found in the DB, but they have been whitelisted. Is it just the links, or the entire domain that is dead. If just the links, I would suggest simply marking them as dead on wiki.

It's just the links; I've marked them as dead explicitly.

Thanks for asking about accessibility; there are no accessibility problems on my end at the moment, but I'll let you know if I find any.

I've gone ahead and dewhitelisted them, but if the bot continues to think it can't correctly assess the links, it will probably white list them again.
