Press Release / statistics for recent milestone of CopyPatrol/plagiabot
Open, Needs TriagePublic


It seems like we recently crossed a milestone with the bot for catching copyright violations. (see T185163; I'm not sure if the milestone is 1M credits, or exactly 2 years since last load)

This may be a good time to consider a Press Release with aim to:

  • Maintain the good relationship with turnitin team who kindly provided us with great service for copyright violation detection used in the core of the system
  • Get more users involved in patrolling the suspected edits using CopyPatrol (especially in wikis for which we run the bot but not all cases are getting reviewed, e.g eswiki)
  • Thank for the patrollers, and in particular the most active patrollers in the leaderboard ( )
  • To make it interesting (and for my own curiosity) it would be awesome if we can include some patterns/tips&tricks we learned from the project:
    • Who is more likely to have suspected edits? (new users? people who get paid from companies?)
    • What subjects are the most common for copyright violations?
    • Where does the copyrighted content come from? (small websites/large websites)?
    • Are there specific terms/words/patterns that are more likely to appear/not appear in copyrighted material?

Excellent suggestions. Diannaa has the most experience and thus would likely be best positions to give estimates on the data.

might be a good one for some attention on via the foundation blog as well ?

That's a good idea. It'd encourage more people to get involved.

Suggestions: (1) Prepare a survey using some or all of the questions and ask people on the leaderboard for their thoughts. (2) Write an article for The Signpost as well as the foundation blog.
