User:The_Earwig/copyvios.js - user script[edit]

Hi Earwig, I have used Earwig's Copyvio Detector via web. I have just downloaded your user Earwig user script at Here and this is my common.js; however, I could not find where is the tool is placed in the top menu (other user scripts are in "More" drop-down list from the Menu). Kindly advise and thanks in advance.05:52, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi CASSIOPEIA. The script should appear in the sidebar under "tools"—see here for an example. — Earwig talk 15:59, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
Thank you Earwig. Found it. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for creating the script and it is so useful where I check copyvio when I review new article. Thank you. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 00:41, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, I appreciate that! — Earwig talk 04:11, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Asian Month Edit-a-thon @ The Met will be hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday November 16, 2019 in the Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education (81st Street entrance) at The Met Fifth Avenue in New York City.

The museum is excited to work with Wikipedia Asian Month for the potential to seed new articles about Asian artworks, artwork types, and art traditions, from any part of Asia. These can be illustrated with thousands of its recently-released images of public domain artworks available for Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons from the museum’s collection spanning 5,000 years of art. The event is an opportunity for Wikimedia communities to engage The Met's diverse Asian collections onsite and remotely. Asia Art Archive will host a sister event in Hong Kong next week.

12:30 pm - 4:30 pm in Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Uris Center for Education
81st Street entrance, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue


And there will be sandwiches and Wiki-Cake!

Thanks, and hope to see you there! --Wikimedia New York City Team 16:46, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
