Link to event.preventDefault (https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/DOM:event.preventDefault) goes to 404
Hi @Reporter,
Can you please add more details like on which page did you find this broken link?
Flags: needinfo?(chancesmithb)
The page containing the broken link is listed in the URL field. It's a page of sample code using these methods, which in turn is linked from https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/Events/Creating_and_triggering_events 

The problem is that the sample code page uses very old paths in its links, from back when MDN had a different URL scheme. Some of these links are resolved, and some are not. The link in question should be: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Event/preventDefault

Similarly, https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/MDC:Copyrights should be https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/MDN/About#Using_MDN_Web_Docs_content

and https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/MDC:About should be https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/MDN/About with link text "About MDN web docs"
Flags: needinfo?(chancesmithb)
Summary: Bad link → Bad links in sample code page
This sample code needs to be migrated to be one of the types of example code that we currently support and can maintain: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/MDN/Contribute/Structures/Code_examples
