Tootdon has a search server, which indexes the public toots of the federated timeline for searching. You can search the latest toots for 30 days, and those older than 30 days will be automatically deleted from the server. Also, when posting from the application, in the case of public toot, we also update the index of the search server. If you do not want to be indexed, we will exclude that account if you request @tootdon from your account.
@tootdon Hi, I'm the server admin, please do not index any toots from the bsd.network instance.
@tootdon I'm the Mastodon.Observer admin. Please do not index toots from the Mastodon.Observer domain, thanks.
@tootdon Shouldn't this be an option for users of your app? Users should be able to choose whether they want their public toots to be uploaded to your server.
@tootdon I'm admin from qdon.space. Please do not index any toot from qdon.space
@tootdon please index my account, I like search.
@tootdon hey don't index my posts thanks
☝ @ordnung habt ihr das gesehen? Ich wäre persönlich eigentlich dagegen, dass hier alles indexiert wird und viele andere Admins haben sich wohl auch schon beschwert... (die Toot-Suche, wie sie aktuell in Mastodon implementiert ist, finde ich ok, aber das...)
Hi @tootdon I'm one of the server admins of chaos.social, please do not index any toots from our instance.
@tootdon I'm usagicore.moe admin. Please do not index any toots from usagicore.moe instance.
@tootdon Please do not index any of my toots or those of camixo.com. Thanks.
@tootdon There is a opt-out option within the mastodon settings which should be used for reliability.
I don't see why admin suddenly take this for their whole instance .-. Just put a no index tag somewhere and tootdon should check back if profile pages allow indexing or have a noindex tag on their profile and the robots.txt of the instance.
It's nothing new that there are search indexes. And people who don't put the opt-out in place explicitly allow search engines to index their postings.
@tootdon exclude me, thanks!
@tootdon and exclude this account too, thanks.
@tootdon Question: do you detect the “Opt-out of search engine indexing” setting in user account?
@tootdon wouldn’t it be more respectful of your users’ data to opt-in instead of opt-out
@tootdon Thanks for the transparency and willingness to accommodate people! I wish all companies were this responsive.
@tootdon please do not index me
Please do not index my data. I left Facebook and Twitter because of the privacy issues they have.
@tootdon "Opt-out of search engine indexing"
Can you see that configuration option for others? Does it do anything?
Exclude me and @Basix@Basix@twingyeo.kr
@tootdon i do not want this account and any of its toots indexed.
