Some of my recent editing areasEdit
Northamerica1000, I've used the IABotManagement Console a few times, which links internally here and externally where I've used it via toolforge here, (which includes an option to "Add archives to all non-dead references (Optional)") and up until a few days ago, only on pages where I am very familiar with the References (mostly articles I've created or contributed substantially).
I circled back to have a closer look at what the bot had done, (it has no option to verify before submitting), and to my surprise saw that it actually adds to References, archived pages with "not found errors" aka dead links, that have been previously captured at the Wayback Machine! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to rollback my edit and spent almost 2 hours verifying each reference all to manually revert 2 of them.
As much as I like that tool, and knowing that you need to use it responsibly, I doubt that most will realize that the bot is adding dead archived links to References. I'm seeing more editors using the tool. Is there a reason to be concerned here? Thanks! — WILDSTARtalk 20:19, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Hello. Years ago, you created some redirects such as considering deleting a similar page. Several other respected editors also created /Archive pages, so I suspect that they have a purpose we've overlooked. Can you think why we might need them? Certes (talk) 21:03, 9 August 2020 (UTC). We're
