Add "wiki/Portal:Prepared_stories/" to robots.txt for Wikinews
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: ral315

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.

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...
