Is broken source used for forever broken sources (like deleted tumblr/da) or for broken links to still (probably) existing source?

The way Pie and I would do that when we were source fishing a year or so ago was that "broken_source" indicates a Tumblr/DA/etc. that has been completely voiped off the face of the earth, whereas "deleted_source" indicates a Tumblr/DA/etc. that still exists, but that particular entry seems to have been specifically singled out and deleted by the owner. Does that answer your question?

Yes, it does. And if source is not a proper link that I should put "sourcing_attempted", right?

"sourcing_attempted" means you went to Google Image Search or some similar site, tried a reverse search using that image, and got nothin'. I'm not quite sure what you mean by "not a proper link".

Nevermind, I've just found that the source in question is broken.

But what I meant was misspelled or just plain wrong (to other post, for instance) link.

Oh, yeah, um, well we should just fix those, I guess? Doesn't require a tag, we just fix them. And if the real source remains elusive, I guess the honest thing to do would be to delete the faulty source and re-add "source_needed" + "sourcing_attempted".

Or maybe use "actual_source_needed", which is one I never got into using personally, but it's there.

Yes, we really need to fix them but I'm not really very well at tumblr surfing so sometimes I just want to mark them in such a way that someone else would see tha source is not really good.

IIRC, I fixed it once or twice. Or tried to fix. Or something. But sometimes it's too frustrating - and more so when tumblr's theme doesn't show tags.
