what’s your workaround with dealing with external links?
You might noticed debates about fake news and other sources. I‘d like have a feature or plugin, that allows me to keep track of content changes or at least a hash based solution. I‘d like to validate the orginal linked page , warn users about changes (by threshold) , and inform admins / moderators about dead links and some kind of simple fraud detection.
Nowadays, civilized discussions and knowledge base management needs more control about about the sources. Wikipedia pages and other sites „under construction“ should be handeled a little bit differently. For example by providing a link to the version protocol or exact post.
What’s your opinion on this?
