Bad reference links should be reported to us as soon as possible. As a general rule, we make quick corrections of bad link references upon becoming aware of them. However, sponsor sites do change contest, form and rule pages without notice and our members can often catch things which we may not be aware of. Timely notification to us will insure that we can properly update our contest listings for other users to get to the proper destination.
Note that bad reference links more often show up in the archived contest pages as well as the winning recipes lists. As a general rule, CCC does not correct bad link references in the archived files since these are expired contests typically from a long time ago. However, we will investigate and correct bad references on the winning recipe pages, if the page is still available on the sponsor site.
