Renaming or noindex-ing after RFCs end[edit]

I have stumbled across Requests for comment/No username when titling any RFC, and I think it might be appropriate to consider ways to keep potentially unfair accusations out of search engines. Perhaps Requests for comment/Global ban for X, which could be misconstrued as an announcement about a decision, would sometimes become Requests for comment/Global ban proposal for X or Requests for comment/Global ban for X (failed) . In more extreme cases, the RFC might be retitled to remove the accused editor's name.

Another approach is to mark "failed" RFCs about a specific named individual with __NOINDEX__.

German/English language chaos[edit]

I find it very discriminatory if I read the page for RFC in German, but the policy is only available in English. Even more confusing is the section on creating an RFC. Chaotic! --FolkertM (talk) 16:49, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

@FolkertM: It is just that no one have translated it to German yet. You can help. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 16:59, 10 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
