I just corrected a link, but before submitting it, I updated the script that lets editors update submissions to update the ModifiedDate for the submission in the Item table. So, you will see a lot more updated files as I correct links here and there. I am doing it this way, because submissions stored in the database do not have file modification dates, and if I don't update ModifiedDate in the database, the data on the submission in the sitemap will be out-of-date and inaccurate. So, updating the ModifiedDate in the database will let Google and other search engines know that the submission has recently been updated, and this should keep search engine records more up-to-date.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
