The Contest

Fun Calorie Wiki Contest

We wanted to do something fun in getting the PT Calorie Wiki going. It is going to be great with a bunch of unique entries, perspectives, tags. The wiki is about much more than just the data, it is an opportunity to share all sorts of information about the different foods we eat everyday. The way we set it up is in keeping with PT's mission-- people helping people.

As a little incentive to get this project going, we are going to give away a new iPod, the cool one that plays movies, to the user who enters the most creative, interesting and informative wiki entry. The PT community will nominate the potential winners, and we will choose the winner from the
nominees. We will run this until Aug 15, and then solicit nominees.

The link to the ipod is below!

Please clarify contest rules

Hi Julie, Are you looking for exotic food entries, unique recipes, or great variety in our logs to qualify individuals as candidates to win the iPod? How about just using the Wiki appropriately and daily? Does that count for anything?
Thank you for a FAB tool, and a great site! ~ kathy

Hi there, I'm sorry, but I'm kind of out of the loop and showing my age... what exactly is a wiki?!

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for the kind words about the site- we are constantly working to improve it. A wiki is an internet term for "user driven database", where everyone adds and edits content. With our Calorie wiki, we encourage you to add entries to the database, or tag exisiting ones. Tags are simply common identifiers (such as 1 weight watcher point) that allow people to search for information in many different ways. For example, after shopping and you buy something that is not in the database, put it in!

In terms of contest entries, we are simply looking at helpful information-- and that is a broad term. The more info the better. If you think about what we do at Peertrainer every day- everyone is helping everyone else.

Are we going to be nominated by our name or by our entry? Will rarer foods versus those that are eaten regularly by a lot of people have less chance? In which case can we do a few entries? If so i'll be entering a bunch!

LOL I actually made the comment asking about the wiki.... :-) I just figured that I'm not the only one who might not know the answer... :-)

Sounds cool. :-)

Hmmm. This contest could be a bit tricky. A wiki can be constantly updated, which means that the latest editor's name is attached to each entry, even if their contribution was tiny. (As an experiment I just edited the hi fibre cereal, entered by anita, and voila, now my name is attached instead of hers - she gets no credit and yet presumably she did all the initial work.) Because of it's community-minded, democratic, evolving nature, a wiki seems like a difficult concept to have an individualistic contest on (which is not to say I won't compete -- who knew that IPods play movies these days? that's too cool!).

I love the idea of us entering new foods, and being able enter foods from the caloriefinder into our logs at the click of a button. However, the fact that it's a wiki format, makes me trust the caloriefinder less than I did. After all, wikipedia is famous for it's inaccuracies and inconsistency from one day to the next. Again, I don't think someone is going to sabotage the calorie information, but mistakes seem more likely when everything is always editable.

I just watched a PBS special on wikipedia and was astonished to find that the wikipedia has 4 times as much information as the encyclopedia. If there is an innaccuracy, the wiki gets edited. How much debate can there be about the caloric value of a snickers bar? You can nitpick anything.

I wonder if peertrainer keeps a history of the entries?

A couple comments

1) We do have user edit versions in place, so if someone edits something that is innaccurate we can quickly roll back to the last edit. If someone edits or posts something that is not in the spirit of Peertrainer, we turn that persons account off and all their edits are rolled back. It will simply not be worth the effort, and I can't imagine that someone would want to waste their time in this way.

2) We will begin to lock down "complete" entries, or at least most the entry and leave the comments open. We need to figure out exactly how this process works.

Where's this "wiki" located? Is there a link to it somewhere?

Wiki Link

There's two links that I've seen:
1) Click on Diet & Fitness, at the top of this page, and you'll see the calorie wiki link.
OR:
2) When you are in "update" mode in your own log, a quick direct link to the calorie wiki appears in the left-hand margin. (You have to actually be in update mode though.)

It's basically where the old "calorie finder" used to be.
-p'frau

PS I was the one "nitpicking", and the eventual lockdown of description/nutrition seems like a good idea, even if not totally in wikispirit. I do think the calorie wiki idea is a huge amount of fun. I especially love the tags (and the funky fonts they appear in). It's a really good way to look for new foods to try.

PPS You know how, if you're really craving a food, sometimes just imagining that you are eating it, imagining the different tastes, and imagining that you've just finished eating it, will make you feel satiated? (A bit like "mindful eating" only without the eating bit -- this works for me, at least.) I think writing creative wikis about a food that you crave, can have a similarly satisfying effect, thus overcoming your need to actually consume the food. As a test, next time I get a brownie craving, perhaps I'll compose a wiki-ode!

Calorie wiki - where is it available?

You can also click on MY LOG (this is also accessed when you click UPDATE MY LOG) in the top nav and you'll see it in the nav on the left, and a purple link on the right.

Additionally, we placed it as a tab in the TEAM view (the last one)

This is a lot of fun-- I now realize that I am ingesting a TON of sodium. I have no problem finding foods low in fat, high in fiber and low in calories. But the sodium is a killer.

Wiki Contest

Hello everyone, I am brand new to all of this...I could use some instruction. How do I compete in this contest? I am doing the low/no carb thing...can i still participate? I am hoping the contest will motivate me. Thank you.

You participate by adding food to the Wiki, and writing an informative description about the food. The description can contain the history of the food, nurtitional analysis, your experience or opinion of it, a recipe idea or anything else you can think of. Good entries are tagged by others as "Best of PT Wiki" and you'll see a whole list of available tags when you click "Edit Tags"

You can also comment on an entry-- adding your comment or responding to anothers. The contest runs until Aug 15th. The community nominates entries through the "Best of PT Wiki" tag, and PT chooses the final winner.

Did you change the rules for the wiki contest then? It says here that the community nominates and PT picks the final winner, but elsewhere it says we all vote on Aug 15th...
