Description Ral315 2006-03-24 05:54:59 UTC
Request for Wikinews to add all subpages of "wiki/Portal:Prepared_stories/" to
robots.txt.  The reason is that sub-pages there contain prepared obituaries and
other stories that have not happened yet, which would be unsuitable to find in a
Google search.  They have big templates that say they're just prepared stories,
but it wouldn't hurt to add it here as well.

This would be helpful. Thanks for bringing it up, Ral315.
Comment 2 Amgine 2006-03-24 06:06:37 UTC
I think you mean to add them so they are not spidered, correct? If so I concur.
(Hadn't even thought of that, very good idea Ral315.) It might also explain some
of the odd vandalism to the Jimmy Carter or Ford articles...
