I think we need to ensure that BLP deletions are tagged appropriately. and this wikia needs to err on the side of caution in order to avoid causing subjects further grief in their pursuit to remove problematic content from Wikipedia. i.e. if someone jumps through all the hoops to *help* us remove problematic content from Wikipedia, they are not going to be happy to learn that the same content has appeared on Wikia - its confusing, and they will blame Wikipedia, and IMO they are right to do so as this Wikia is run by people in the Wikimedia community, and due to the overlap in the WMF board and Wikia board, now and historically.
e.g. this AFD mentioned "WP:BLP1E" and was categorised into "AfD debates (Biographical)" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Alexander_Kinyua http://speedydeletion.wikia.com/wiki/Alexander_Kinyua Until we are confident that BLP problems are not being imported into the wikia, the content shouldnt be indexed. I assume __NOINDEX__ works on Wikia?
