There is a workaround but it's not very elegant...

What we did on our site is to duplicate the modify.cgi file (we created a new file called correction.cgi) and all the associated files as well (e.g. templates). This also includes duplicating /cgi-bin/admin/Links/User/Modify.pm to Correction.pm, and this then allows you to change the link selection sub to choose non-validated links rather than validated links in the frontend.

There is a bit more to it than what I have described and I'm not sure we have it 100% right (there are some quirky errors in the backend that occur sometimes when validating). It does work though and gives users control over their unvalidated links.

Send me a PM if you want to discuss this in more detail as it's too complicated to post here Wink.
