Description Bence Damokos 2008-06-05 19:59:16 UTC
Please include in the robots.txt the following lines, so that Hungarian Wikipedia's deletion discussions are not indexed:
Disallow: /wiki/Wikipédia:Törlésre javasolt lapok
Disallow: /wiki/Wikipédia:Törlésre javasolt lapok/

Thank you,
Comment 1 Daniel Tar 2008-08-18 22:35:13 UTC
What about these two lines? It would be a very big help, as there were many complains about the top position of these deletion requests in Google.
Comment 2 darklama 2008-08-18 22:38:45 UTC
This is probably a WONTFIX. Use the new __NOINDEX__ magic word inside a template used on all those pages to achieve the desired behavior.
Comment 3 Daniel Tar 2008-08-18 23:43:29 UTC
Why a wiki workaround with templates and magic words better that inserting two, t-w-o lines of code to robots.txt? I think the second version is 1) use less resources (not as many as turning off for example the thumbnail gererator, but less), 2) not need of continuous inserting of templates.
Comment 4 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2008-08-18 23:51:22 UTC
I don't think there are plans to freeze robots.txt and require communities to use __NOINDEX__.  However, this kind of request gets done very slowly.  You would just have to add __NOINDEX__ to [[hu:Sablon:Törlés teteje]] to make almost all of them noindexed right away (assuming that's used consistently).
Comment 5 JeLuF 2008-09-12 23:56:04 UTC
You can create a custom robots.txt by editing the page Mediawiki:robots.txt on your wiki.
Comment 6 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-03-13 17:46:07 UTC
Changing all WONTFIX high priority bugs to lowest priority (no mail should be generated since I turned it off for this.)
