Earwig's Copyvio Detector
In case Reviewers were unaware, there is an excellent tool for detecting copyvio -- called Earwig's Copyvio Detector.
You can specify just the external links cited in sources to compare -- or also search engines to search on the Web in general.
Here is the result for a recent Wikinews submitted article = https://tools.wmflabs.org/copyvios/?lang=en&project=wikinews&title=ISIS+militant+shoots%2C+kills+five+at+Saudi+Arabia+Shia+mosque&oldid=&action=search&use_engine=0&use_links=1
Really a great, great tool.
- May want to perma-bookmark it somewhere locally here on our Wikinews site, add it to pages about how to Review, add it to gadgets, all of the above, please. -- Cirt (talk) 02:36, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
- Although I've found dupdet quite useful, I've also observed that toollabs comes and goes; I've got pretty much zero tolerance for this sort of nonsense, don't want availability of an important review tool at the time of an actual review to be a crap shoot. Every time I start a review and wonder whether I'll be able to access dupdet, I wish we had a purely in-house tool so we didn't have to rely on toollabs. --Pi zero (talk) 02:49, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
