It's fantastic to see that we have such interesting tools to contribute
to Wikidata like Magnus' games.
With Wikidata Game and The Distributed Game as a base, I think we could
go further and get a tool that serve, not only as a game, but as a real
competition. In particular, with the following additions and a few
suggestions, I believe we could celebrate great /in situ/ Wikidata
competitions over the world:
* A chronometer with a start and a scheduled end while contributions are
registered for the contest.
* Some quorum (e.g., three) so that edits in the contest are only
applied to Wikidata if that quorum of people agrees on an answer.
* A scoring system that only provide points (or much more points) to
those who get a quorum. This avoids people answering randomly while they
destroy Wikidata and earn more and more points.
* A way to show the same questions to the quorum number of participants
during the competition.
* A real-time ranking in the competition scope.
* A way to manage the list of participants and to register an
administrator, or multiple ones, for every contest.
Would this be a good idea? Would anyone like to develop some of these
