Oh wow. I'll be clearing some of that user's stuff right now... I'll have to go give a warning too. Thanks for the heads up Shini! =)

@RedRoses: I think that almost all the submission for "maria137b" is taking for other site.

Yeah I'm reviewing a lot of them and they seem to all be copy-pasted. I take random snippets from various articles she has edited here and they're from Naruto wiki and stuff... I'll slowly (but eventually) go through each of her entries. I've only gotten through a handful and when I have more time, I'll delete other entries.

I think she did that to every Naruto character

I have a related question: are the points from the people that plagiarize taken away? Or reset to 0?

@jlrm01: all the Wiki entries are all from plagiarize. So yea, if you can taking back to zero that will help. I think RedRose can back me up on this one, since she remove all previous entries.

Currently no but Ethan is working on a new system that may feature this.

I'm using this as a placeholder list for me to do things later. Will deal with soon.

Okay what I've looked through so far:
Kaname Chidori - I looked through and deleted the paragraphs. I will warn the user about plagiarism soon.

Edit: Moved to do list into first post.

Also to the issue about point removal from a month ago, we have no power to remove points at the moment. I believe CV mods had the power but I don't think they do anymore.

As I was reading the MD Geist page, I noticed that the paragraphs were taken straight out of the "Anime Encyclopedia" book that I read a while ago. No citation or credit is given on the page. Link:

Duly noted. Thanks! :)

I think I'll make my to-do list be in the first post. It seems more effective that way. *goes to edit*

I just noticed the Leda page, and I believe that the paragraph in there is also plagiarized from "Anime Encyclopedia" with no credit or citation.

On a side note, I don't think "Fantastic Adventures of Yoko" is correct for it. IIRC, it should go like this:
"Leda - The Fantastic Adventure Of Yohko" (My source for that is here: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=2133
That is all.

The Leda page is what I call a "skeleton page" (a page that exists, but no one has points). Previous to your 1 point edit, the article was there already but no one had any points in it. So, I guess, the article was entered directly into the database, bypassing the point system altogether. (No regular user did that). I could swear Gia said that they used a certain source for pre-populating the database (with permission). I don't remember what it was... (I hope it isn't my imagination... ^_^;)

I deleted the whole text on the Sakura Hurano, Hinata Hyuga and Neji Hyuga pages. The Sakura page was copied from wikipia and the Hyuga pages where copied from Narutopedia.

All the pages related to La Corda D'Oro need to be fixed because of plagiarism.

I'd say just about every single Type Moon character, but there are enough exceptions, so I'll just list the ones I've come across personally instead:
 
In no particular order:
Akiha Tohno : ripped from here
Shiki Tohno : ripped from here
Kirei Kotomine : ripped from here
Kiritsugu Emiya : ripped from here
Sion Eltnam Atlasia : ripped from here
Ciel : ripped from here
Michael Roa Valdamjong : ripped from here
Arcueid Brunestud : ripped from here
Kohaku : ripped from here
Hisui : ripped from here
Nrvnqsr Chaos : ripped from here
Satsuki Yumizuka : ripped from here
Aoko Aozaki : ripped from here
Touko Aozaki : ripped from here
Shiki Ryougi : ripped from here
Azaka Kokuto (which is misspelled btw, it should be Kokutou) : ripped from here
Fujino Asagami : ripped from here
Lio Shirazumi : ripped from here
 
(there's tons more I'm sure too, I'm just tired of trying to find them all is all)

and the real kicker that ticked me off the most, was the article on Mystic Eyes of Death Perception which not only erased my article I wrote here for it, but was ripped from the very wiki article I originally wrote on another site! (I didn't write any of the other wikia articles up on the list, but it surprised me when I found this one... talk about irony)
