Copyright Violation Detection - EranBot ProjectEdit

A new copy-paste detection bot is now in general use on English Wikipedia. Come check it out at the EranBot reporting page. This bot utilizes the Turnitin software (ithenticate), unlike User:CorenSearchBot that relies on a web search API from Yahoo. It checks individual edits rather than just new articles. Please take 15 seconds to visit the EranBot reporting page and check a few of the flagged concerns. Comments welcome regarding potential improvements. These possible copyright violations can be searched by WikiProject categories. Use "control-f" to jump to your area of interest (if such a copyvio is present).--Lucas559 (talk) 19:22, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Help needed to complete GA review for Sherry ThomasEdit

Hi everyone! A few days ago, I began a Good Article review of Sherry Thomas, a critically acclaimed Chinese-American romance writer. Unfortunately, the GA nominator (Plange) has not been active on Wikipedia for the last few months, and she has not responded to the requests for revisions at the GA review. Is there somebody at this Wikiproject who is willing to work on the article to bring it to GA status? I certainly wouldn't want to lose the opportunity to bring this article to GA status. I also posted this message at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women writers and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women/Women in Red. Thanks in advance for your help! Best, -- Notecardforfree (talk) 18:03, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Working on a draft for author Kristen AshleyEdit

Working on author page (Kristen Ashley), started a bibliography for her and it created the bibliography page without it going through the submission and review process. Wasn't expecting that to happen as the author page is still a work in progress and wasn't ready for the bibliography to be up yet. Thought it would just be a draft. Can someone tell me what I did wrong? Kristen Ashleys Bibliography --Azurerae (talk) 22:20, 16 May 2019 (UTC) Posting this in the TeaHouse as the project notice board looks to be rarely used. --Azurerae (talk) 22:24, 16 May 2019 (UTC) resolvedazure 04:11, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Collaboration/Assistance w/Kristen Ashley ArticleEdit

This Draft:Kristen Ashley was declined when submitted. The author can be found in the Biography & Genealogy Master Index, IMDB, FictionDB and on the 14th of this month a movie will be coming out from Passionflix that is from her book "The Will". PR Newswire and Soap Central reported the book being adapted to film. Discussion at the Help Desk brought out the fact that IMDB doesn't matter because anyone can create their own IMDB page. The user answering said "It isn't a notable film (no article) and you have a press release as a source which isn't considered reliable." I think he's referring to PR Newswire. Other questions regarding this article there were not answered.

  • What sources for a new movie are considered reliable?
  • Is BGMI not an indication of some notability?

--Azurerae (talk) 15:55, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Added IMDb as source for movie. --Azurerae (talk) 21:27, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
