Support » Everything else WordPress » Please Remove My Post

  • Hi,

    I recently installed a plugin for a client site and was having problems with it. I put a post up explaining the issue and added the domain as reference. This domain was a staging site and now this has been indexed by Google (which isn’t ideal). So far only very few pages have been indexed and we have put in place measures to stop any more but I would appreciate it if you could remove this post. The URL of the post is:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/upload-error-message-3?replies=1

    This hasn’t had any replies or generated any interest so it shouldn’t conflict with any forum terms and conditions.

    Kind regards

    I understand that, and have looked through other posts on this forum about this issue. Being in this industry you must also be aware of the consequences that this issue may have, albeit short term . Although only small this is causing unnecessary issues. I can’t see any reason why this post cannot be removed.

    I’m sorry, but like many people, yours is not an exceptional case.

    @chemicaldesign I’m reopening this topic to address your now deleted complaint about this topic. Then I will close it, please do not create more topics about this.

    When a request is made to delete or edit a topic, that request is taken seriously. If it is an extreme case then the request is acted upon.

    No, I’m not going to get into it with you about what qualifies as extreme except to say this: search engine hits are 100% never extreme. That just is not ever a reason to edit a post in these forums.

    This domain was a staging site and now this has been indexed by Google (which isn’t ideal).

    As of this moment there are 7,252,756 posts in these forums. Put yourself in the place of the moderators and please understand how difficult it would be for us to entertain all those requests if we opened those flood gates.

    That’s not practical and the moderators need to be fair but also firm. Your request to edit that topic will not be acted upon and the topic and posts will not be edited.

    I am now closing this topic again.
