Banned Site Names

Would it be possible to get a list of commonly user banned sitenames that some of the big sites are using? edublogs ( i got the obvious ones, ie. support, help) it seems as if this would take time to see but hopefully the experience of our big sites can share the knowledge :slight_smile:

    Actually we really don;t have any list either. We tell our admins to create the blogs first that they don;t want others to use. Subdomains like blog, login, logout, themes, support, forums, forum, faq and faqs. Really never liked the ban list because the error it kicks out doesn;t really tell users that they can;t have those urls.

    Plus it's a question of SEO. If you view the Create a Blog page, there's a meta tag in there that doesn't allow robots so the url won;t be indexed by search engines. That's what search engines are going to see when they visit those urls. If a site admin changes from a blog on a url that's marked as ignore by the site admin to one that's able to be indexed, it may be a very long time before the search engines come back to that url to index it.

Thank NAME, for their help.
