I had given my evidence to 2 objectives before accepted them. Will it work?
Hi Vyacheslav! Yes, this should not be a problem. If it appears that there is an issue, post it in this forum and we'll address it.

Sorry, I put the post below on the general discussion board, but meant to have it here.

"Hi. This looks great! Thanks for the time and effort. I have my school looking at doing this with our grade 8-10? students, but need to know what security concerns their might be. Can you elablorate on that for us? Thanks."

Clearly, using a "Ning" platform there will need to be instruction regarding what information students volunteer, but are there guidelines on contact information, inappropriate language, cyberbullying, etc.? Is there staffing time given to moderating...advice on how to use this resource with schools...evaluating responses, etc. A response to these questions and anything else that would be pertinent would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Question: I'm unsure how to assign different pieces of evidence to different objectives. I used the tags "act1" and "learn1" on my blog posts, thinking that would tie them to the correct objectives, but I didn't get +1 courage for the "learn1" post; I got +1 knowledge share for both. I did accidentally publish the post before I added the "learn1" tag, though. Is this the right way to do it? Did I miss some instructions? Thanks for helping!
I'm having the same issue, I have published for all 3 objectives, but none of them have turned green to signify completion...

Hi Everyone - All evidence is personally reviewed before lighting up the objective runes. Your appreciate your patience!

Huw: Not sure about the WMV issue. Maybe you can upload it to YouTube or Hulu and then embed the code on our site.
Hi!

The tagging helps us (and players) find/organize content. Everything is manually reviewed and then marked complete.

When do we need to have all missions and objectives completed? I want to make sure I don't miss any!
Thank you for the clarification! Patience is no problem :-)

Anne - a new mission will be available each week, but missions don't "expire" until the game ends in May, so theoretically you've got two months to complete them 'on time' (though I doubt there will be anything stopping you from continuing even after that!)

As one of the developers and as one of Alchemy's assistants, I can hopefully give you a satisfactory answer. Disclosure: I'm a high schooler myself (10th grade), but I'll try not to let that impact my answers.

Security concerns: Ning is as safe and secure as any platform online. In the case of EVOKE, it's even more secure because of our team of admins and game runners, constantly combing through and approving evidence and participating in the community. I wouldn't have any worries of cyberbullying here—every single shred of participation I've run into over the past 12 hours has fully demonstrated the fact that everyone here, no matter the age, is quite adult and helpful in their mindset. If you have any complaints, at all, a click of the report button or a message will take care of that and all the game runners will get automated emails from Ning.

As for integrating this into your curriculum and resources for school, I'm not the person for that. I'd contact the community as a wh***—there are very many smart people here—as well as some of the lead developers. They're already working with schools around the world and the EVOKE network will gladly welcome your students' presence.

Happy EVOKING and best of luck with your endeavors.

Hi, how can I search for people that I know in order to Friend them? They joined on their own without my sending them an invite.

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
