Copyvio Bot on Punjabi Wikipedia[edit]

Hi @The Earwig: I am a Punjabi Wikipedia admin and I think the Copyvio Bot will be great addition on Punjabi Wikipedia. Besides, running it on new articles from now, can we also run the bot on existing articles on Punjabi Wikipedia as well ? Let me know if anything else in required. --Satdeep Gill (talkcontribs 07:29, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Satdeep Gill. While I do have a tool to check for copyvios, I don't have a bot that does it automatically. The main reason is that checking for copyvios is slow and expensive (there is a daily limit of about 1,000 checks due to the data source we use), and there are enough false positives that I think humans should always review the results before they get shown to other people (like the article creator). See my response to a similar question here. — Earwig talk 14:36, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
I totally agree that humans should check it. What we are looking for is to have it enabled and that the tool adds a template to articles that might have copyvio. --Satdeep Gill (talkcontribs 07:43, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

You are invited to join us the "picnic anyone can edit" in Brooklyn's green Prospect Park, as part of the Great American Wiknic celebrations being held across the USA. Remember it's a wiki-picnic, which means potluck.

2–7pm - come by any time! Our reserved picnicking area is by Bartel-Pritchard Square entrance, located at Prospect Park West and 15th Street.
The picnic will be held by the park's Bartel-Pritchard Square entrance immediately on the lawn to your right as you walk through the lovely lotus columns.
Look for us by the Wikipedia / Wikimedia NYC banner!

We hope to see you there! --Pharos (talk) 08:24, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
