WikiMaster Communities are forming around the World
WikiMaster Communities are forming around the World to encourage quiz and local content based questions to national exams and to gather to enjoy the WikiMaster app.
WikiMaster app is the core of the Knowledge Network WOK. It is a Wikipedia app that currently has the highest ranking in Google Play in reviews among Wikipedia apps. The WOK Community is a sibling Community with Wikipedia and works hand in hand to enhance the academic use of Wikipedia by adding, multiple choice questions, tests, Exams and quizzes to the articles. In this effort, enthusiastic wokers (users of WOK) are gathering together to enjoy the power of many in creating valuable content of MCQs in the Wikipedia spirit. Here are a few of them in the making. If you feel you would like to be a part of this movement: Please keep in touch and send us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
WikiMaster Nigeria Community Group
Nigeria is one of the most active groups that have started and have held a WikiMaster Conference, WikiMaster Contest and a follow-up Quiz-a-thon during 2018.
This commitment to bring another dimension to the Wikipedia by adding related content for the Nigeria Students and bringing national exams like JAMB (West Africa) will bring a great boost to the Wikipedia User Group in Nigeria.
The Community is working to have more gatherings with WikiFlip and WikiMaster app in the near future independent and together with Wikipedia User Group Nigeria.

In Senegal, we have had over 100000 downloads for WikiFlip only and this French-speaking country will hopefully soon have a WOK Community that will bring more questions in French. We have a group of Wokers that has created over 4200 questions in French but no gatherings such as quiz-a-thons have been taken place.

The Egypt Community is the most active of all Communities. Every Thursday this group of editors gather in WOK Main Office in Mohandeseen, Cairo close to the Shooting Club and create Arabic Questions (MCQs) and quizzes. Today over 38000 (!) questions are created in WOK in Arabic and over 15000 of them have been created since June 2018 in and between Egypt Community Meetings. We are working to host a University based gathering with Wikipedia in Cairo to host the first Arabic WOK Event.

WikiMaster Community Germany
Germany is the 2nd largest Community of Wikipedia. We have reached out for some time to get a vibrant community there. With some efforts done, we seem now to have a break to the barrier. Just like Magnus Manske was the first to write an article on the German Wikipedia, some first adoptor has to see the potential of greatness in WikiMAster MCQ. Once the Germans get going, we all know what happens. Give a task to the Worlds most organized people and efficiency will follow. We hope to present the WOK project at WikiCon and form a group in the fall of 2018.

No one is a prophet in his hometown they say. Well, we have not been very active in Sweden albeit being based in Stockholm. So far. Swedish is having 6300 questions in WikiMaster. Most of them made by the same person who creates MCQs for the Swedish TV-show Who wants to be a millionaire. They are of course super great. But we are seeking for active Wikipedia lovers. We are visiting schools in Stockholm creating quiz-a-thons during week 47, 2018 (in Täby) in our effort to change this. With Wikimania 2019 coming up on August 14-18 2019: We hope to have a vital and vibrant Swedish WikiMaster Community as well. The PISA results are going down in Sweden and students need to learn facts. And having fun doing this.

The top WikiMasters in the World are from India. The average WOKbits earned per woker is from India. India loves WikiMaster and downloads are huge. We are working to for a WikiMaster Community in India creating even more questions in English that are focused on the India related work and not UK/ USA based as most questions in quiz apps (and WikiMaster). We have done progress in History of India and Bollywood area during 2018 but we need a local Community/ Communities in this large Continent and we are working toward this.
