Trina Morissette page tagged[edit]

I am a volunteer with the Trina Morissette Campaign in Ottawa center, i wrote the original text that has been posted in several locations including the one that your bot identified but as the original author I permit its use for the purposes of providing biographical background on Trina Morissette.

I have provided this explanation on the discussion page Talk:Trina Morissette as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ottawacenter (talkcontribs)

Frances Howard (actress)[edit]

Hello, your duplicate pages bot caught me with a tag on the Frances Howard (actress) page just as I finished restoring the Frances Howard to a disambiguation page. Its now complete, and I removed the bot tag. All reasoning explained on both article talk pages. Now I know I need to be much quicker!!...Steven Russell 08:49, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Ilinx[edit]

Got a note from CorenSearchBot about copyright in the ilinx stub I added. The content in question is a direct quote from Callois's book -- what's the position in fair use of such quotations? Thanks. Cshirky 18:13, 24 August 2007 (UTC)


Dimitrios Partsalidis[edit]

Hi, your bot flagged this article up as copyvio off Phantis. (http://wiki.phantis.com/index.php/Dimitrios_Partsalidis) Phantis is a wikisite itself, and does not claim copyright in the same way that Wikipedia doesn't. Either way I have rewritten much of the article and expanded it. Cheers, StephP 18:39, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Redirection of Bharathapuzha River page to a new one[edit]

Hello,

I have two reasons to do that. Its nothing to do with the capital letters. The reasons are as follows.

1. The name "Bharathapuzha River" is not correct because the term "puzha" and "river" means the same. So the "River" part is not needed.

2. In malayalam language "bharatha" + "puzha"(river) = bharathappuzha. Please notice the "pp". As this is Wikipedia and many people including me using this as a reference guide, we should give excat naming too.

I hope my arguments are correct. You can change the title "BHARATHAPPUZHA" to "Bharathappuzha".

Regards,

Rajeev madhavan 06:30, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

It's important, when renaming a page, that you move the page, and not simply copy and paste its contents to the new name because that looses edition history— which the GFDL requires be kept. — Coren (talk) 15:28, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Berlin Debating Union[edit]

A stub article I created earlier today on the Berlin Debating Union seems to have been speedily deleted after automated messages from CorenSearchBot appeared on the page and on my talk page.

The article contained two very generic opening sentences that were largely (but not word-for-word) similar to two sentences from http://www.debating.de/node/9. These were could hardly be considered a copyright infringement as they were just an extremely straightforwardly-worded explaination of what the Union is, and the rest of the page was not copied at all. I'm very surprised that the page has been deleted. Purple Watermelon 10:18, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

You may want to ask the deleting admin (Butseriouslyfolks (talk · contribs)), who is in a better position than me to explain the reasoning followed. — Coren (talk) 15:22, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Opticians Council of Canada[edit]

Coren reported that the above was a cut and paste of copyrighted material: this worries me because I created the page simply by refactoring existing stuff from the extremely overbloated section on Canadian opticians in Opticians. I think a lot of the other stuff there could be cut and paste too. Could Coren be pointed at the page to check it? Maybe there should be a way of submitting requests to Coren to check existing pages in general? Umptious 11:19, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Actually, there is.  :-) Simply add a wikilink to User:CorenSearchBot/manual and you'll get a result within a few minutes. — Coren (talk) 15:17, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Northern New Guinea lowland rain and freshwater swamp forests[edit]

Your overzealous bot has marked a one-sentence stub article as a copyvio; what's going on? Tom Radulovich 01:36, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Well, if that one sentence can be found elsewhere, then it wasn't overzealous; it was correct. If you wrote that sentence yourself and simply happened to match someone else's, then removing the tag is all that's needed. — Coren (talk) 04:51, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Yated Ne'eman (United States)[edit]

Hi Coren: I received a message about "copyrighted" material on the new Yated Ne'eman (United States) I have just created. The joke is, that this newspaper does not publish on the web. All that I quoted in the article was the ONLY two lines on http://www.yated.com/ that offers readers an alternate option and indeed the Wikipedia article explains why that is so and what's behind it. Thus the copyright issue is not relevant and I am removing it. Thank you. IZAK 11:15, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Bot error Instinct:_Decay[edit]

This is the first time I've left a message like this so I'm sorry in advance if I do this incorrectly. One of your bots thought I took a whole section of text from this article from [[1]]. I took the tracklisting (this is an album page) from a completely seperate website but the bot linked it to the CD universe website. I hope that made sense. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by YamaLlama (talkcontribs) 17:33:10, August 19, 2007 (UTC).

Unnecessary SearchBot alert when splitting Wikipedia article[edit]

Hi, your bot left me this copyvio alert unnecessarily. I was splitting a Wikipedia page, creating a new article. The SearchBot detected similarities with another copy of the Wikipedia source page, the content of which ought not to be copyright. Fayenatic (talk) 15:07, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Unavoidable annoyance, I'm affraid. CSBot cannot know that a cut-and-paste is legitimate, and so flags all. When you know what you are doing is okay, just go ahead and remove the tag. — Coren (talk) 15:20, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
OK, thanks. Could you give it a fuller list of sites which copy Wikipedia, to ignore when searching? Fayenatic (talk) 16:39, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Deleting article[edit]

This bot keep deleting my article that has facts and says they are copyright because it found them on some random forum. From my understanding facts can not be copyrighted. So How do I get around this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rickler (talkcontribs) 18:30, August 25, 2007 (UTC)

If you only copy raw facts (and not prose, even single statements) then there is no violation of copyright. Simply remove the tag (preferably with a short note on the article's talk page so that patrolling admins can see why you did). — Coren (talk) 03:13, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Financial Services Action Plan[edit]

Hello Coren,

I just received a message from you about the Financial Services Action Plan that I have just created. You make reference to text from the FSA page.

As you may see from my entries, I am a relatively new user of Wikipedia. I am interested in improving the coverage of European Union topics, particularly with reference to financial services and financial market regulation. My sources often include material from regulatory authorities as I am not creating original material in any way.

I always try to refer to other Wikipedia pages where relevant and also cite sources wherever possible. I did use the FSA text as part of my entry and was obliged to save it to create the original entry. In the comment field I noted that more work would be required to make this Wikipedia reach an acceptable standard, in part referring to the text from the FSA,

I have the intention to substantially revise the text and incorporate material from other sources, all sources will be referenced accordingly as per all my other Wikipedia entries, and my revised text will not resemble the text from the FSA.

Please inform me of how I can ensure that my entry will conform with all Wikipedia as I have no intention of posting material from other sources and passing it off as my own,

Copyright free stuff tagged as copyvio[edit]

Hi! Your bot tagged Irmgard Flügge-Lotz as copyvio from PlanetMath.

Could you please put an exception from PlanetMath in the bot's page checking? AdamSmithee 12:12, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Congress[edit]

I had a different message posted here before, but let me better explain myself. It's not a big deal, but I'm just wondering if you can program your bot to avoid this problem. I got some information from the U.S. Congress website, which is well established as part of the public domain. However, your bot said that I got the info from everyone's favorite Wikip rip-off, Infoplease.com. Since Infoplease apparantly uses the same public domain info, your bot seems to think i took it from a copyrighted site. Weird. Mr. Vitale 20:04, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

There's absolutely nothing that can be done about that, I'm afraid. When two places take their information from the same source, they will always look like copies of each other, and no bot could be smart enough to figure out that the copies were legitimate. All you need to do when that happens, however, is remove the tag— the humans reviewer that follow CSBot are smart enough to understand.  :-) — Coren (talk) 20:19, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Free Agent Crew[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Free Agent Crew, and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://www.triplejunearthed.com/Artists/View.aspx?ArtistId=655. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot 00:19, 29 August 2007 (UTC)


I have no idea what this means????

It means you blatantly cut and pasted information from a website, which is a breach of copyright. I have had this done to me once and I had to do more research and rewrite the majority of the article. You can reference it, but you cannot blatantly copy it. -- Macr237 07:37, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Ok - i created a new page for Free Agent Crew. Didnt cut and paste any info at all. And it has STILL been deleted saying it was about a band/muso ect.... im confused. So you can't put a page up about a band now? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Topcat82 (talkcontribs) 02:05, August 30, 2007 (UTC)

Bridge Conferencing Solutions[edit]

MadDogMikey 19:36, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi,

I have just entered details for Bridge Conferencing Solutions.

They specialise in video conferencing and I thought it would be good if the world knew about them.

I got their info from their Company page on their website www.bridgeconference.co.za and simply changed it from 1st person to 3rd person.

The searchbot said this is in violation of copywright as it is pretty close to the info on their website.

Please tell me how to go about rectifying this so that it can be officially entered regardless of where it is being sent from.

Thank you.

Cativolcus[edit]

The text on the article is not a copyright violation. It is indeed taken from the Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology, which is available online (the text is from here). However, that book is published in 1870, which puts it in the public domain. –RHolton– 04:49, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

The Gazette of the United States content[edit]

Hi, replying to your bot message, it is correct. However, the duplication was only momentary because I was copying the content of the article The Gazette of the United States, and moving it under the paper's correct name Gazette of the United States (i.e., article renamed to remove the 'The'). I inserted a redirect from the old name to the new, so any links will flow properly. Thanks, and a good bot! GoldenMean 06:04, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Coren, wasn't sure about how to do that. GoldenMean 18:02, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Hedydipna[edit]

Please stop your bot tagging Hedydipna - twice in two days. http://www.economicexpert.com/a/Collared:Sunbird.html has copied the collared sunbird page from Wikipedia, not the other way round, and has acknowledged Wikipedia and the GFDL licence at the bottom of the page. If you cannot train the bot, I'll protect the page. Jimfbleak 16:28, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Congress[edit]

Hey, I'm the guy who had the problem with the bot tagging information from US Congress public domain sites. Anyway, remember how you said human editors are smart enough to understand that the info is ok? Well, I'm already running in to a problem with somebody who just won't take the 5 seconds that're required to find the info on the Congress website. Can you help me straighten this out? Thanks. Mr. Vitale 22:19, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Exclusion Additions to CorenSearchBot[edit]

Please see [3]. Can you add http://www.infoplease.com/biography/us/congress (not the whole site, just that particular section) and User:Afil to your bot's ignore list? Over the past few weeks, I have remove quite a number of false matches based upon these.

The Biographical Directory of the United States Congress is a US Government work and, therefore, public domain. Infoplease mirrors the directory and anytime someone creates an entry from the directory, your bot tags and lists it. These articles are getting created quite frequently.

User:Afil has been creating many stubs on rivers. He's using the same basic format for all of them & your bot keeps tagging and listing them. I'm surprised he's not complained to you as he keeps reverting the tags. I've removed quite a few of them from the listing.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks. -- JLaTondre 00:04, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Your recent change of MOSNUM[edit]

I don't get it. Why is scientific context at issue here?

"Outside of scientific contexts where numerical error may be significant, the number of decimal places should be consistent within a list or context". Tony 04:29, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Because significant digits and precision count. 41 is different from 41.0— the former means "some value in [40.5 41.5[" while the latter means "some value in [40.95 41.05[. In a scientific text, changing the number of significant digits changes the meaning. — Coren (talk) 05:32, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Goodbye Gay Meadow[edit]

Goodbye Gay Meadow - I am the author of the book and run and maintain the www.goodbyegaymeadow.com site of which I own all the copyrighted material. As a professional photograper who frequently has images stolen off the web I very much appreciate the amazing © copyright stance that wiki adopts. The book is currently being printed.

Hashivenu[edit]

I'm learning the ropes here, so thank you for your patience! My understanding was that short quotes could be used if they were cited. I placed the information in quote and included a citation. Is there more I need to do than that? GracieRuth 06:03, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

As a rule, no. CSBot might simply have gotten a bit trigger-happy if the quotations are a significant part of the new article (something to watch out for), but if they are properly attributed it's normally not a problem. You might want to read up the copyright policies to double check, but human reviewers look after what the bot notices and tend to be much smarter than a program can be about quotations.  :-) — Coren (talk) 06:09, 3 September 2007 (UTC)


Untitled by Jpalme[edit]

Jpalmejpalme@dsv.su.se 17:42 2 September 2007 (UTC)

I am a very inexperienced writer in Wikipedia, but if I have done things wrongly, please explain how I should do it right. I do not even know for sure how I should go about asking a question in the web page I am writing my question in now. I understand that this is a page where I can get answers to questions, but not how to do it.

I wrote a new article for Wikipedia with the title "Cognitive modules". After this, I get repeated statements that this article is not permissible, because it is based on another web page, http://web4health.info/en/answers/bio-brain-work.htm, which is substantially identical to the Wikipedia article.

However, I understand your rules to say that it is permitted to copy existing web content, if that content is available under the GFDL license. And I have included a note at the end of http://web4health.info/en/answers/bio-brain-work.htm, saying that that page is available under the GFDL license.

Question: Must the indication that a page is available under the GFDL license be in any special format, for example using some special HTML or XML encoding? If so, how should I have done it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpalme (talkcontribs) 16:44, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, it doesn't have to be, but it helps CSBot know about it if you use a suitable template, and avoids the notice entirely. As long as it's attributed, however, humans reviewer should notice.
Also, as a rule, the GFDL requires that edition history is preserved; this is most easily done by linking back to the page from which the material was taken. — Coren (talk) 06:06, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Jpalmejpalme@dsv.su.se 5 September 2007 12:59 (UTC)

I hope I have done it right now. I added the following text at the bottom of the Wikipedia article:
This article was originally based on material from [[4]], which is licensed under the GFDL.
It seems funny that information about the GFDL license should be in the Wikipedia articles, which anyone can edit, and not in the original article, which only the copyright owner can edit. It seems more secure to have the GFDL information on the original text. But now the GFDL information is in both the Wikipedia article and the original article, so I hope this will prevent the Wikipedia article from getting deleted.

Always Active Technologies[edit]

Security Council Resolutions[edit]

Hi

Your bot seems to be repeatedly tagging articles on United Nations Security council resolutions (e.g. United Nations Security Council Resolution 143).

Miura-Kaigan Station[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Miura-Kaigan Station, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Misakiguchi Station (Kanagawa). It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot 16:42, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Chōshō (長承)[edit]

The bot was not in error, not really. However, this is one of those instances in which the SearchBot was precisely correct -- and yet unhelpful. I'm in the process of creating templates for as yet "blank" Japanese era names or nengō. In other words,
  • Yes, I did copy the full text of Hōen (保延), which is the Japanese term for the years spanning 1135-1141 ....
  • Yes, I did paste this data in the empty text box for Chōshō (長承), which is the nengō for the years spanning 1132-1135 ....
  • Yes, I do plan on using the same copy-and-paste strategy many times in the future ....
I did post an "under construction tag" at the top of the page, but I now believe that I should have posted this warning on the blank page BEFORE adding any text whatsoever. Your SearchBot recognized that something was amiss -- no error on your part. But I wonder what I could have done differently? Any suggestions? --Ooperhoofd 18:17, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
The warning on the black page before the cut-and-paste would indeed have avoided the bot triggering. An alternative, if there are a large number of articles on nengō you intend to create like this, is to place you on the list of trusted users. さようなら. — Coren (talk) 20:21, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. While I do very much like the idea of being included amongst your list of "trusted users," I think I prefer to remain in jeopardy of your bot. It should be a simple matter for me to remember to put the under construction tag on a blank page -- and, if I forget, this becomes a good practice exercise. In future, my hope is that the accumulation of comparatively trivial details in the way I conventionally do things will produce a range of beneficial consequences: so -- if your bot does catch me in a silly oversight, so much the better .... Some things are perhaps best learned the hard way.

fr:Ères du Japon[edit]

À l'égard de votre « CorenSearchBot » à la version anglophone de Wikipédia: In this context, I dare to be BOLD in asking a corollary question about creating nengō in fr:Wikipédia?

In any case, it makes sense for me to follow up briefly:

Storm Stoppers Page[edit]

Hi, the bot caught the fact that I used portions of the website for the page on wiki. I did have permission from the owner to use their about us page to set up a page on wiki. This product is so unusual that I felt a page was necessary on wiki so that people can find out about it when they see it in news articles. There is not a place on the submission page to notate if a person has permission to use such material. And I was just to brain dead at this time of the morning to re-write the whole thing.

Copying Copyright free information[edit]

On the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities wiki page I copied some copyright free material from their own website describing what they do.

It is, but the only truly copyright-free material you can find, is that which lapsed into the public domain (either by virtue of having been published earlier than 1923, of having been created exclusively by the US government, or by having been explicitly given by the rights holder to the public domain).

Sir Nicholas Slanning[edit]

Hi there, My contribution on Sir Nicholas Slanning has fallen foul of a CorenSearchBot, claiming copyright problems. This article is almost entirely derived from material supplied by Alan Wicks, taken from 'The Crucible and the Gun', a work in progress. Alan has given full permission for the material to be used in Wikipedia. Similar material exists on the web site of Sir Nicholas Slannings regiment http://www.slannings.org/CrucibleGun01.html and parts of it also appear on Sealed Knot sites. This is because the original writer, Alan Wicks has given permissions for his work to be used there as well as in my article. Alan is a personal friend, an ex C.O. of Slannings Regiment and a long standing member of the Sealed Knot, hence the material being duplicated / triplicated.Pan narrans 17:58, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Tagging of Biographical Directory of the United States Congress Articles[edit]

I previously asked you this, but you did not respond. Can you please fix your bot to stop tagging articles as copyvios of http://www.infoplease.com/biography/us/congress (not the whole site, just that particular section). The Biographical Directory of the United States Congress is a US Government work and, therefore, public domain. Infoplease mirrors the directory and anytime someone creates an entry from the directory, your bot tags and lists it. I removed two more cases just now[5] and there's been even more since my last request. Thanks. -- JLaTondre 23:18, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

The best way would actually to have a standard attribution tag placed on the articles, because if I just whitelist the site it'll just hit some other mirror instead. Is there a standard tag you use to attribute those? Something like {{1911}} which CSBot can recognize? — Coren (talk) 02:33, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
The standard attribution tag is {{bioguide}}. Thanks. -- JLaTondre 13:53, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Perry Hall Mansion[edit]

Your bot deleted my page before it could be completed. First of all, I am one of the principal authors of the www.perryhallmansion.org where the text of this page originally appeared (so there is no infringment of rights). Second of all, I had not completed the page and referenced the source of the text. I would greatly appreciate it if your bot would allow me to finish, prior to unilaterally opting to delete my work.

Thank you!!

Actually, my bot deletes nothing. It is, in fact, unable to do so. A passing admin deleted it.

Re: ambox formatting[edit]

See Wikipedia:Talk page templates for the standard format for talk-only templates. For now, the goal of Wikipedia:Template standardisation is more or less limited to article pages, though there's talk of expanding it to project pages and the like. In particular, the image request templates are talk-only and should follow the talk template format. OTOH, I have a feeling the talk templates will soon look more like the new article templates. szyslak 19:28, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

I do agree that Wikipedia:Template messages/Cleanup looked much better before my reverts. OHOH, when tags like {{reqphoto}} are used on talk pages, wouldn't the ambox formatting clash with all the other talk templates? In addition, the talk-only templates often have very specific formatting that allows for conversion to a sidebar mini-template, as with the various WikiProject tags that appear as sidebars in talk pages with a lot of templates. So before we change the talk templates, I'd suggest bringing up a discussion on Wikipedia talk:Talk page templates. szyslak 19:37, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Re: {{rewrite-section}}?[edit]

You caught me in the middle of updating the documentation! :) {{cleanup-rewrite}} already supports specifying if it is being used for a section, it just didn't say so in the 'Usage' section (it also supports adding a reason, also not documented) which I was in the middle of updating. Both {{rewrite-section}} and {{sectionrewrite}} are both only for sections, and it seems silly to have 3 templates when 1 will do. If you want, you could make the section templates transclude {{cleanup-rewrite|2=section}} or move the functionality to {{rewrite}} which is currently a redirect (it has a past incarnation of the template though in the history, making moving more difficult). mattbr 21:32, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Copyright warning[edit]

Hi,

I have this evening added a new article about Tenant Management Organisations ( there was no information prior to me doing that ) I included some adapted text that I have used previously for an information pamphlet that is published on the Housing Justice website. Housing Justice have added the pamphlet to their website with my consent but the copyright is not theirs. The text included in the Wikipedia article is written by me although it includes text previously used by me in other documents. There are therefore no copyright issues.

Hi Coren.

CorenSearchBot is very cool. Would've loved to have that around when I was doing a lot of work on dog-breed articles and having to do searches like that all by my manual lonesome.

FYI, it flagged Bogatyr (disambiguation) as a duplicate of a page in another wikimedia wiki, [7]. I did put info on Talk:Bogatyr (disambiguation) explaining that the text was on Wikipedia first. I don't know whether academickids.com is a mirror (or otherwise "legit" copier) of wikipedia material, but if so, you might add it to your list to filter out, so that people like me can avoid an unexpected 20 minutes or so of research and justification.

Sorry to butt in, but couldn't help. I don't think the material that makes Chief of Army Staff of the Bangladesh Army has any place on Category:Chiefs of Army Staff, Bangladesh.

Some thoughts about the bot...[edit]

...in my opinion it would be better if the bot neither tagged the article nor notified the article creator. We can do that. First, it would do fewer edits (1 instead of 3) per article, so could instead add more articles to WP:SCV; second, it would peeve experienced editors less. I think that is important. --Iamunknown 08:54, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, I don't agree. For one, almost half the tags lead into the article being edited by the original contributor into compliance, which is a good thing (and, indeed, better than us having to fix it: the author has presumably learned not to do that again in those cases).
Besides, CSBot isn't lagging behind, so giving it less work doesn't mean more tagged articles. :-) — Coren (talk) 12:38, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
