Some wokers are mainly contributors and see the natural red line between Wikipedia and WOK and realize that the marginal effect on good multiple choice questions on top of the most read articles on Wikipedia in order for the worlds students to learn more easy about anything schoolrelated is far much higher than addning another marginal article onm top of the already existing Wikipedia articles.

WOKbits works in all WOK apps and on the web.

WOKbits is the awards for your efforts in World of Knowledge Ecosystem. All WOKers get WOKbits (Wb) when they achieve correct answers and help to improve the questions by adding new questions and quizzes, edit and improve existing questions by tags, add images from Wikimedia Commons and report errors of any kind by the alert system in WOK ecosystem of app and web. 

So a WOKer will get WOKbits depending on their efforts. It works basically like flying miles on an airline system.

5- How to add tags to the WOK questions and put quiz on top of Wikipedia in the WikiMaster app

5- How to add tags to the WOK questions and put quiz on top of Wikipedia in the WikiMaster app

 

The tags in WOK are keywords that connect all multiple choice questions in the database of WOK to Wikipedia articles, related to the question. Synonyms are wikis, wikipediaarticles, articles, tags, keywords and at few occasions hashtags. 

A new tag is always a wikipedia article. Some old tags remain from the beginning of the project that was not correct Wikipedia articles. These tags are cleaned by the WOKers on daily basis but can still popup occasionally. The same goes for Wikipedia articles that have moved and changed names. They are normally redrirected by the Wikipedia API that WOK cooperate with. 

Basically: WOK database of questions cooperate with Wikipedia articles. WOK users, the wokers, can see both the Wikipedia articles and the questions related. Wikipedia users can not yet, see the WOK questions in Wikipedia, making the app WikiMaster a splendid choice for using Wikipedia since it is Wikipedia + Quiz.  Everything in Wikipedia is in WikiMaster. But not all of WOK is in Wikipedia. Check our API that Wikipedia will implement.

Would you like Wikipedia in color orstick with the original in black and white? Download WikiMaster here. Its free

To add tags you need to tink in the context of which the question would fit. Please read the guideline on how to tag questions to WOK. 

The registered users of WOKcraft, the WOKers are creating the questions in WOK. Just like the crowndsourced content of Wikipedia is maintained by the users of WIkipedia, the WOKers are making the efforts of controlling and maintaing quality of WOK so the questions in WOKcraft ecosystem is maintained for the general benefit of all users of WOK. For trivia fun and for knowledge learning purpose. When you have answered a question in any of the WOK mobile apps or when you create a question in WOK: You can add more relevant keywords to the questions. These keywords/ tags are equal to wikipedia articles and will determine to which wikipedia article the questions will end up to in a quiz that can be taken in WikiMaster or flip images in WikiFlip

8- What happens to the questions that are created by the users in WOKcraft?

QK7 screeen CQ9h 140910

Questions in WOK become classified with a class B at first

When a question is put in to WOK by a WOKer (user in WOK) 

    1. using the Create Question function in app WikiMaster
    2. using the Create Question function in app Quiz King 
    3. using the link from WikiFlip in Settings leading to Create Question in WikiMaster 
    4. ---> Questions is classified as "Class B". 
      Questions in WOK with class B is seen in WikiMaster and WikiFlip but not seen in Quiz King.
      Questions that have been approved by an administrator / experienced and trusted WOKer , called SuperWOKer is upgraded to class A. Class A questions is visable in Quiz King, WikiMMaster and WikiFlip. 
      So for Quiz King questions need to be approved and upgraded to class A.  Class B , Class C and Class D or Class E is not displayed for users playing Quiz King. 
      Class C is "Alerted questions" that are reported to be wrong for any reason by any WOKer in any apps.
    Class D question is "unpublished questions". This means the question is not finished by the WOKer who created them for any reason. Maybe the user wants to create many questions and put them into a quiz before publishing them. In the future there will be functionality in WOK that will have even more use for unpublished questions that are still valid and correct, but not yet published. An administrator can also change the question into class D if it is for example controversial, inappropriate or does not make sense. 
    Class E is questions that are approved but not suitable for Quiz King. Either the question is to granular and not regarded as General Knowledge and unsuitable for Quiz King more light format but still regarded as relevant to a specific Wikipedia article in a particular subject (or many). Or the question is to long in terms of characters. Limit is set to 105-107 characters in the question and 50 for the alternatives. Or it is a question with a NOT factor being the correct answer.
    If any of these there (3) criteria is met ; To narrow for the General Knowledge, Long and NOT but still good relevant questions: They are accepted and kept in WOK for WikiMaster and WikiFlip use as Class E. 
    This destinction means that Quiz King could be regarded as "a pub quiz app" and the other is apart from being fun apps more academic in their approach and accept more complicated and granular questions and subjects in the mission for WOK to cover all subjects. If any WOKer feel the questions is wrongly classified: It is of course not an exact science. But these are the guidlines for WOK classification. 

    Class A: 105 characters in Question, 50 characters in Alternatives. With or without images. Broad knowledge and never an answer that is to be elimnated. 
    Class B: Entered by WOKer and not reviewed by a SuperWOKer. Visable in WikiMaster. And in WikiFlip if image is added. 
    Class C: Alerted question. Question reported by a WOKer for any reason. Creator/ Owner has 72 hours before question is transfered to Alerter to be edited. Removed from WikiMaster and WikiFlip, but not yet from Quiz King during active play (One WOKer have playted a round waiting for opponent to play) . No new rounds in Quiz King will have the alerted question in new rounds while class C. 
    Class D: Draft or a question that obviusly have no meaning. 
    Class E: Questions that are good but not suitable for upgrade to A due to lenght, to granular for general knowledge, or have a NOT in the Question. 

    Questions can be added in many languages. 

9- Who is approvning the questions in WOK?

WOK screen approveQ 141208

The experianced WOKers - SuperWOKers.

The experianced WOKers are called SuperWOKers (SW). They are approving questions in World of Knowledge. They upgrade the input questions to be class A for beeing availible at random in Quiz King games. This is the short answer. But there is a more sophisticated and longer answer to. 

The idea of WOK is to create the equivalent version of multiple choice questions linked to Wikipedia adding a irresistible layer to the articles created by users by having the same collaborative forces joining in and create the questions just as mankind jointly made the online encyclopedia. Working together hand in hand with Wikipedia, WOK aims to have the same administrators/ ambassadors to make and create and enhance quality and fact control in the questions just as Wikipedia have in the articles.

To have this in the long term  is easy. In the beginning of WOK we have appointed a few administrators approving questions entered the database by users throughout a backend system, the SuperWOKers. So this administrators are approving the questions as of 2017. We need more of WOKers approving. Please apply if you interested to join and add questions and approve questions made by others! If ytou are one of the about 76000 ambassadors for WIkipedia or want to join in the project: support@wokcraft.com

We also need many more languages! As of January 2017 WOK have approx 300000 questions in english and 20000 in arabic, 11000 in swedish and about 4000 in french.

Most of them is tagged or upgraded to class A. The questions we have is good in quality but are to be put into quizzes, tagged for WikiMaster and to be added with learning links. To be "flavored". We are now running at a good pace in this work. Any question in German, Spanish, french, russian and portugeise is able to be entered into WOK apart from English, arabic and swedish. 

Once a question is controlled by an administrator or SuperWOKers as we call them and validated in language, fact control in answers and alternatives: The question is classified as A-class. When we have a question as A-class: It is visible and are randomly displayed in Quiz King games in the rounds when you play.

WMA Screen SW sw person 170116

Example on logfile for a question upgraded and cleaned by a SuperWOKer.
