Here you can find answers to most of your WOK related questions. We are continously adding more questions, and encurage you to submit your own question if you miss something. Please note the general FAQs here about WOK and that each app have separate FAQs with specific details about that app. All apps are within the WOK ecosystem and you can jump inbetween the apps. From WikiFlip or Quiz King to WikiMaster when you want to know more and on other places. So WOK is an ecosystem of apps. WOK is the Knowledge Network. And until Justin Timberlake advice us to take the "The" out of the Knowledge Network; We are WOK. ;-)
WOK is short for World Of Knowledge. WOK is a social online learning network and a large ecosystem for questions about facts that have apps for playing quiz games, quiz battles and take and create multiple choice questions and quizzes on any subject. The Knowledge Network WOK. All questions in WOK are tagged to Wikipedia articles and later put into personal quizzes on any subject to extend the usage of the encyclopedia into enhanced academic value. The users are called WOKers and they all collect WOKbits through the ecosystem of WOK. WOKcraft is the name of the company behind WOK. (See also the Foundation at www.wok.ac)
Every member in WOK that signs up to WOK; World of Knowledge through any apps in AppStore or Google Play produced by WOKcraft or arriving in WOK from third-party API related source to enjoy Wikipedia at large and/ or to play quiz related to Wikipedia in WOK is a WOKer.
The work we collectively do as WOKers in the WOK community is to improve WOK multiple choice question system on top of Wikipedia for the general good by all WOKers by
1) play quiz battles, challenges or flips. It will result in better statistics over time to separate easy questions from hard.
2) add tags to get relevant questions in the Wikipedia articles that you would expect the questions to belong,
3) create new questions to get good quizzes in all Wikipedia articles or to put them in Personal Quiz related to a textbook, a class or any related subject that can be targeted to a specific group or interest.
4) alert quality issues in questions to get correct and well-spelled questions that are interesting, not duplicated and vary to different target groups.
5) add images to questions to get the apps WikiMaster, Quiz King and WikiFlip more fun and illustrated and to
5b) put questions into the right Main Category in order for Quiz King to be better but also to see the overview in Profile of WOKers interest and preferences when you want to play with someone who shares the same kind of curiosity.
After beeing a WOKer for a while we trust the WOKers with more ability to help the community: After 40000 WOkbits earned a WOKer is also allowed to
6) remove tags to avoid questions not belonging to the related subject or wiki article that for some reasons have been put there by mistake. This cleaning is important to the benefit for all wokers.
A WOKer is a registered user of WOK. A SuperWOKer (SW) is a registered WOKer with more abilities than a normal WOKer: A SW is an Administrator that has an added functionality as a WOKer due to proved service to the community as a WOKer. A SW can except above also;
7) Upgrade questions to Quiz King app. For a question to be upgraded to class A in Quiz King: Less than 105-110 characters: broad in the trivia sense, excluding NOT-related questions to mention a few. Basically, The SW overview the input of question and alert to the creator and if necessary correct errors directly. SuperWOKers activity os mentioned in Notifications in WikiMaster. WOK needs more SuperWOKer in many languages since we grow in size. Please apply if interested in a supporting the project. If you have participated in Wikipedia as a contributor: We think you are excellent for WOK as a SuperWOKer.
Some wokers use WOK as a fact source by the fact WikiMAster is an excellent Wikipedia app by all means even without any Quiz related. (Facters).
Some wokers are main 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 world's students to learn more easy about anything school related is far much higher than adding another marginal article on top of the already existing Wikipedia articles. We call them Wikipedians.
The majority of WOKers are trivia lovers who see WOK apps as excellent and fun choices as quiz apps in the trivia sector of AppStore and Google Play for fun use to learn and to get "Time spend" as "Time Well Spent" on their smartphones. We call them gamers.
A small group of the wokers is addicts and they strive to be in the top of the Scoreboard as Wikimaster in the World, country, city or in the articles. We call them Addicts.
In WOK you can follow another WOKer and this WOker will be "WOKers you follow" or "Added WOKer" or +WOKers. You can compare any WOKer score and see the total WOKbits in Scoreboard in WikiMAster app or Quiz King app. In all apps you can see the WOKbits in Profile.
Earlier from project WOK: You could join from the web project in earlier versions of web service in www.wokcraft.com and the apps WOKquiz and WOKwiki iOS app and the WOKbattle apps, all projects for iOS and Google Play. These users in WOK are still called a "WOKer" or wokers and can login to WOK in the existing apps, albeit no longer support of abandoned apps.
WOKers can enter WOK and sign up for FREE without any purchase cost or hidden fee by:
WOKbits is the awards for your efforts in World of Knowledge Ecosystem. All WOKers get WOKbits (Wb) when they achieve to answer correct answers in multiple choice questions 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. It can be converted into some other currency at special occasions.
When you answer a question you get WOkbits for the correct answer. Not only will you get WOKbits for correct, you will get more WOKbits if you answer fast and correct than your opponent in quiz game Quiz King who answer slower but still correct. Check how WOKbits works in detail here.
If you don't care about WOKbits and does not want to display your results in public: Don't worry: You can use an acronym for your name in Settings or Hide the results totally. Or you can use WikiMaster not even register as a WOKer. Some of us WOKers like it that way. All knowledge lovers are welcome to WOK. With or without Scoreboard. For most of us; It's really nice to see and compare with friends (=Added WOKers) to follow and see how you do in your city, country and in the WOKworld.
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, Wikipedia articles, articles, tags, keywords and on 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 pop up occasionally. The same goes for Wikipedia articles that have moved and changed names. They are normally redirected by the Wikipedia API that WOK cooperates with. An example is "USA" and "United States" that has a lot of tags in WOK but are one Wikipedia articles but has different WOKers playing them.
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 cannot 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. We have great hope Wikipedia and WOK project can interact even further in the future. Check our API that Wikipedia will implement.
Would you like Wikipedia in color or stick with the original in black and white? Download WikiMaster here. It's free.
To add tags you need to think 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 crowdsourced content of Wikipedia is maintained by the users of Wikipedia, the WOKers are making the efforts of controlling and maintaining the 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.

When a question is put in to WOK by a WOKer (user in WOK)
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Example on logfile for a question upgraded and cleaned by a SuperWOKer.
-Wrong question to 4 good alternatives (utrikesminister-> vice statsminister):
-Tags added to connect to Swedish wikipedia articles.
-Image updated top match question
= WOK added one good question to its database for all future WOKers playing and learning.
When you create questions in WikiMaster or Quiz King, the questions is saved to your WOK account. You are the owner of the questions created by you and you are the only one that can edit them. Unless someone Alert them and you dont correct or respond to the alert within 72 hours and the questions is no longer yours in sense of ownership. You can check them, edit and put them into personal quizzes in WikiMaster app. Other WOKers can add image to your questions and add wiki tags to connect to relavant questions.
Quiz King is designed to be a social quiz game to play quizbattles and with your friends with questions. You can create a question in Quiz King, but the app has no admin for your questions once its created. You need to download WikiMaster for this. In WikiFlip app you can not create questions (flips) but you can easily clic Create in Settings and jump to WikiMaster and create a Question in WOK there.
The main app WikiMaster is designed to take quizzes related to Wikipedia articles and to create quizzes. WikiFlip is not designed for this, but is easy connected to WikiMaster.
(Earlier a former app WOKquiz was designed to take, make, create and edit questions and quizzes online and offline but that app is no longer in WOK ecosystem. )
