37. How does the Alert System work in Quiz King and in WOKcraft


An Alerted question will be yours after 72 hours!

In Quiz King and in WOK in general, there are questions that can be questionable for their quality for many reasons. 
In Quiz King and WOKwiki, you can Alert the question in the review mode. The Alert triggers a 72-hour note to the "Owner" of the question in WOK. "The owner" is a. the creator or b. the person who has Alerted and claimed ownership of question if the creator has not taken any action to edit a question during 72 hours after the Alert. 
We trust the WOK community and public domain to self-regulate questions in WOK just like the Wikipedia users are maintaining Wikipedia for correct facts. Our SuperWOKers will handle many errors but not all. We trust the WOK community. The difference is that the creator has 72 hours to fix the problem or the question will be yours to handle. How to handle them? login to WikiMaster app and edit the questions you have made or got ownership of in this app. Quiz King is a part of the ecosystem of the quiz system WOK but has not all functions built in like edit questions. 

1. To review a question in Quiz King, click any of the rounds 1-5, anywhere on the row. For obvious reasons; you cant review questions you have not yet answered. But you can review questions your opponent have not yet answered. 

QK7 screen Alert1b 140910
2. Open the round and swipe among the 4 questions in the round . If you need to Alert: click exclimation mark to Alert a question. 

QK7 screen Alert2 140910
3. State the general reason for your Alert. 

QK7 screen Alert3 140910

4. Give comment so the owner can fix the question and raise the quality of the question in WOK and Quiz King. 

QK7 screen Alert1 140910

5. The opponent in the round will answer the question "as is". If the question has changed, he/she will answer the question after the change is made, so it can be a difference between players. If not, the question will be same for both WOKers / players. In order for any other WOKer to see this question again in Quiz King, the question has to be reapproved by a SuperWOKer. If the question has been alerted by any other WOKer, the same thing happens. This is the way WOK has chosen to do it, with the tradeoffs of benefits and drawbacks. WOK is a living system and is developing in a never-ending loop. WOK will over time be the largest Knowledge System online. 

6. What happens if a WOKer alert the question and nobody does anything about it? 
The question will not be in any rounds of Quiz King but will stay in WOKcraft. It will be in Class C. Reported as Alerted. Until edited. So even if a Quiz King player reports it, the question will not show up in Quiz King after an alert until improved by the owner or a SuperWOKer. 

7. How does WOKcraft Inc prevent any misuse of content and to flag and remove inappropriate content and offensive users in Quiz King app or any other app such as WikiMaster?

Apple requires that users agree to terms (EULA) and these terms must make it clear that there is no tolerance for objectionable content. WOKcraft Inc, the publisher of Quiz King have the Terms of Use of WOKcraft that the users agree to follow upon signing up to the game. In EULA: Users need a mechanism to flag objectionable content and report users generating this content: This is provided by the Alert System (See above in detail how it works). WOKcraft has also a staff of Content Manager who acts as moderator to supervise break of rules and constant misuse such as offending content.

Since both WOKer have chosen 2 rounds each, and for getting the battle as exiting as it can get: The fifth round is chosen by the WOKer that has least WOKbits in the battle. So player behind in the WOKbits score will have a small upper hand ahead of the decisive 5th round!

Each player who press Play or Start or shake a random player choose the Main category in the first round. Currently there is 20 main categories (MC) and one General Knowledge category. You choose one out of three random chosen. This way you have an upper hand to choose a category of your liking.

A notification in the app is sent and the WOKer will know she or he have a round to play.

When your opponent have answered the first four questions in round 1, he/she choose the main category in round 2. So: round 1 is wrapped and then round 2 start with same player that finished round 1.

When round 2 is answered buy your opponent WOKer, you will get the notification to play round 2. You will then choose round 3. And your opponent will after this choose the Main category in round 4.

20. Why do I get a different score even if my opponents choose the same answer?

QK7 screen 55 review battle 140925

We who made Quiz King we have played a lot of quiz apps. We love many of them! There is a great level out there. We are quiz app lovers and we thought that a player who anser quick on a question shall be rewarded over a player who take more time to think and guess. So we made the score in a formula that gave a quick answer much more WOkbits than if you are slow. In many apps, you will recognize the questions and Quiz King will therefore award knowledge higher. So if you have seen a question before and know the answer: You can answer quick and get more WOKbits: Knowledge always wins!

21. Does “Knowledge" always win?

QK7 screen category choose 140916

Some players play poker by bluffing. They might not know but take a chance of go all in with bad cards scaring their opponents. Same in Quiz King. In Quiz King you can “go all in“ by answer very quick on a question not knowing the answer but have 25% chance of getting correct from A, B, C or D alternative, thus get a lot of WOKbits even if you have no clue and just take a chance. A WOKer has to play the way he feel: Safe or take chance. Against different player, you might need different tactics! Know your enemy, but overall: Know your knowledge: Whats in your head in terms of knowledge will always be the winner.

This makes Quiz King addictive and so fun! Compare Quiz King to the rest of the quiz apps out there!

22. If I know a question for sure, can I hedge my score?

QK7 screen question inplay 1 140917

Quiz King is a free app and no one is forced to play Quiz King and have to play. WOK is a free system to use just like Facebook, Twitter or Wikipedia if you are online. But we have spiced the play for WOKers who like to hedge their score. You can upgrade the possibility to have double (2x), triple (3x) or quadruple (4x) in each question. So when you have upgraded to any of these choices thru The Store with an inapt purchase in the Menu: You can click on 2x, 3x, 4x in each question before you click on your answer to hedge your score.

The tricky part here is that if you play with the 2x,3x,4x buttons: You will have minus score if you are wrong on the alternative. No bet and wrong anser gives you zero WOKbits, but when you bet; You can hedge your score, but also loose a lot of WOKbits which makes the play so much more fun. You have to go all in when you are sure of the correct answer! And use the head to judge when to bet and when not to bet.

23. Can I avoid play upgraded WOKers when I still use the free app and haven't upgraded to 2X,3X,4X ?

QK7 screen question inplay 1 140917

Yes, you can see if the WOKer have upgraded in the Profile pic. Some WOKers want to play with WOKers that has upgraded and some WOKers will not play with an upgraded WOKer because he/she feels its unfair and don’t want to upgrade. Its all up to any WOKer to choose. Check the Profile of the WOKer for the 2x,3x,4x symbol that tells you if he/she have upgraded to be able to bet on the questions in every round.

24. How do I change my avatar?

QK7 screen change avatar 150524

In the Top Bar, click on the round picture to change the picture and choose a picture from the Album in your device. You can also go to Profile page of your own name in Scoreboard to do this.
