We chose Wikibase because our selected online environment was Wikimedia and Wikibase clearly had the expertise in this environment and the capability of implementing the Internet Court of Lies.
Internet Court of Lies is a cloud platform to defeat online lies through judge trials. Designed to be used by an online community that wants to know the truth as viewed by others. It needs to be easy to use and safe to use for people that want to be anonymous to make sure the lies get judged and not the persons telling them.
The starting point was the use of our basic modules from the Course Administration Plus system. Supported by a period of weekly video calling, we have come up with smart customization that fits seamlessly Ascend's working method.
We have made a system that allows online users to gather information about any lie they found online and upload the information that comes with it. With this information, a court case is started. Therefore there will be several jurors and a judge selected that will be able to make their verdict on the case. With these verdicts, the judge decides the consensus verdict for the accused lie.
The cases that are settled are stored by the system so that further analysis is possible if needed. The cases that are saved are 100% anonymous to make sure only the lies get judged and not the people telling them.
