Play a Geoparsing Game - Earn Geocode.xyz Credits!
How it works:
You read a short book excerpt which may or may not mention a specific location.
You answer "Yes" if the place name refers to a location, "No" if it does not, "Not sure" if you are not sure.
If the majority of other players agree with you on this one, you earn geocode.xyz credits. Otherwise you lose.
The amount of credits you win (or lose) is determined by the game's blockchain. It uses the history of all players to determine the value of your response. Some responses are worth more than others (e.g., responses to questions where many players are not sure).
The cummulative credits you have won are shown at the bottom left corner of the page. You may redeem them toward geocoding credits on geocode.xyz. Just type the email address of the account you want to have the credits sent to (if the email address does not have an geocode.xyz account, they will be asked to create one).
Now, the problem of all these past years is dumped right in my lap. I don't know how to handle it. I am desperate for advice, so desperate that I now seek the counsel of the Oracle of the Footlights, the Mystic of the Sawdust Ring. Wilt thou help me, Sire?" concluded Adine, as she bowed in mock distress to the little man squirming on the footstool.
