Welcome Message

Welcome to being an editor on Beachapedia!!

Beachapedia is a MediaWiki-powered coastal knowledge repository. What makes it work are the contributions of folks like you who have signed up to contribute their knowledge and experience in order to share it with others. There are a number of Help Pages to help you get started, including a video training session conducted by Mark Rauscher. If you are not familiar with wikis, there is an excellent tutorial on the Wikipedia site to explain some of the basics of editing. The list of help pages may not cover everything, and if there is something that should be covered, but isn't, feel free to ask for it. If you want to try out editing and formatting before you edit any real pages, there is a Sandbox that can be used for that purpose.

I think the best way would be to note that the link is fixed (or tested OK) on the article's talk page, but remove the category once that's done. That way the category only contains pages that need links fixed, but there is a documented history if we have problem links that test bad but actually work, or flaky servers that should be ignored on future checks. Linkbot timestamps its talk page entries, so that will create a trail, and there shouldn't be a major issue with confusion as to when links were tested.
