@Kurohige: 
Well, like my blog post said, I got fed up with finding it all over the kinds of topics I like to search.... notice a relation between that list and my interests? :)

Batch of discovered plaigerized character articles numero dos:
 
Kuzuki Soichirou (I think it's supposed to be spelled Souichirou) : ripped from here
Rider : ripped from here
Caster (HEADS UP: I think someone else legitimately wrote the first half or so, but if you open this other link  you'll probably be able to tell where someone just did a pure copy): ripped from here
Gilgamesh : ripped from here
Lancer : ripped from here
Arihiko Inui : ripped from here
 
 Sometimes I wish I could just draw on the pages with red ink or at least have a built in "Flag this page for possible plagiarism" button (maybe even have a tool in it that asks you to enter a URL and/or highlight the part of the article in question)...
 
And that's only the Type Moon characters...

"    .hack//Sign page is literally copied word for word from the Wikipedia page. It even has the "Donate to Wikipedia" thing at the top...

Edit: Everything  is copied. They didn't even bother to clean it up.
Edit # 2: Actually, I'm pretty sure everything this person has done has been copied from somewhere else.

It is, but please remember this isn't a thread to voice your opinions on plagiarism, but to report it if you find it.

I'll report this one.

Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi anime page's plot overview plagiarized from animenewsnetwork . It's not the side stories which I wrote.

A while back someone wrote a pretty nasty letter accusing someone of plagiarism and it turned out the "word for word copy" was a Google hit pointing to the AnimeVice page being question. Before posting in here, make sure there is legitimate merit to your claim. Also, a match on pronouns specific to a series does not equal plagiarism. For example, a match on the terms Hollowfication and Zanpakuto (if you don't know, these are official made up words specific to Bleach) to another site doesn't necessarily mean that someone plagiarized content from that site.

All of this may sound obvious but we've had reports on plagiarism that fell into these two categories before.

If you want to report plagiarism, go here . I'll take a look at the Sharingan wiki page. If I do find it, I just rewrite or delete some parts or all of it. I dropped Naruto a long time ago. I'm not up to date with some things. I just leave them blank for the experts.

Edit:

I checked the Sharingan page. It's not plagiarized. I still remember you plagiarized Whis page and I rejected your submission.
