Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.

Description bdk 2007-11-25 23:17:14 UTC
Please add the following lines to robots.txt regarding de.wikipedia:

Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Checkuser/
Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia_Diskussion:Checkuser/
Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia_Diskussion:Adminkandidaturen/
(The last is where the actual RfA discussions take place.)

The following entries regarding dewiki should be adapted:

Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Gesperrte_Lemmata/
seems to be twice on the list afaics, one entry can be removed therefore.

Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Vandalensperrung/
can be removed as these pages have been renamed several months ago from "Vandalensperrung" to "Vandalismusmeldung" which is already on the list. 

Further notes:

Currently there are two separate paragraphs regarding dewiki, one is named "de", the other "4937#5". It could be neat to combine both under one header. 

Also, the different entries to exclude special:search are a bit unsorted. They should either be listed in one paragraph for all languages or they should go to the specific language paragraph as it is done e.g. for ar, he and hu at the moment (this is just an additional 'prettifying' request).

Please let me emphasize that the first two entries concerning checkuser are very important in regard to privacy protection. Especially false accusations of alternative account usage might lead to severe "real world" problems for accounts involved when spread by google and others. This might even lead to legal action taken against the Wikimedia Foundation. Therefore, I recommend a fast proceeding with this bug. Thank you.

If they are private, they shouldn't be on the wiki.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-12-18 19:12:16 UTC
Updated. (May take a moment; cache etc)

I've left the Vandalensperrung entry there for consistency (eg just in case :)
