Guidelines for editing, translating and adding questions:
Questions with four answer alternatives should:
a) form a complete natural sentence when joined with the answer alternatives. Those questions should end with ...?
For example; “January is the ...?
- first month of a year
- second month of a year
- third month of a year
- fourth month of a year
b) form a true question (with a question at the end)
For example; How many hours are there in one 24 hours long day?
c) Global (UK English) template questions should try to use SI- units (metric, kilogram)
d) translations into local languages can contain local units
Questions without list of alternative answers are words / phrases awaiting to be translated. The idea is to make
such translations that best preserves the original meaning of the original expression. For example,
“Hi, how are you.” is a common greeting and should be translated as such. Without truing
to translate that greeting into some philosophical pondering e.g. "How come, you do exist?"
Inserting new questions:
a) New local questions can be added by pressing the link "Suggest a new question (using your native language)", in question central
- Local questions can ask something about your country or the world
- Local questions can use local units
- Local questions are to be asked just the local language
- Inserting new local questions is not the same as translating global questions from English to your local language
b) New global questions need to be written with a global audience in mind. Global questions can be added by pressing "Suggest a new global question(in English)" in question central.
- ask questions that people around the world find equally interesting
- the world is not interested about your favorite hockey teams success in 2003)
- ask questions that are of special interest to people on a continent where you have newer been.
General guidelines for editing the questions:
- Try to do as accurate and as short translations as possible
- Try to use maximally accurate, common, and simple words
- Try to make your translations short
For all the matters that relate to concerns of privacy, we are mostly interested about ensuring our
ability to provide good quality education and entertainment services to you, and well possible
others too. Yes, also we hate spammers, phisers, spies and evil big brother control systems.
And we do not share your, email address of other private data with others – unless we really really
have to. In addition, we encourage you to use available methods for hiding the details of your
identity. And you can start that by installing a TOR onion router
program and ( while using TOR) obtaining an anonymous e-mail account. You should also not be
using the same password for your real important private e-mail account as you use for our services
(or that anonymous toy e-mail account you are about to make). On a serious side, we use do
cookies, store records with IP- addresses, usernames, hashed / encrypted passwords, record the
latest practiced languages and possibly store even e-mail addresses given to us. Yes, it is possible
that we can't protect the integrity of those records (nobody can protect any records!). Therefore,
do not submit any information to our site that you can't publish with your own name.
Tele3d.com is a part of a Charity Open Source (ChOS) license popularization strategy.
It is fair enough to say, that making the ChOS license to succeed is our 'prime directive'. ChOS – license
is an initiative for donating Open Source software for the benefit of a union of world's greatest
charity organizations e.g. Red Cross, Amnesty International, Greenpeace and others. The basic idea is that those
charity organizations will get annual donations / payments for the commercial use of donated
Open Source products. Private and educational use of such software would of cause be always
free. Currently the ChOS initiative is waiting for greater interest towards it. Yes, the existing ChOS
license draft is available here
and if you like it or are interested about developing the ChOS license, express yourself by
e-mailing to .
General: The tele3d.com online services are provided by the owners of tele3d.com, who may choose
of use. Most importantly, by using these sites services, you promise not to do bad things - ever.
And you must be legally allowed to use these services too.
Accuracy of data found on this site:
All information that we serve may be 100% accurate, true and typo free or maybe it's not . If you trust
the all information provided by us or anyone, go away and never return to this site again. Other vise
you agree to not be misinformed, mislead, surprised, shocked or terrified by anything you
see on this site.
Most other trivia sites just say we own all the data that is inserted into the systems.
Unfortunately, it appears we need to do the same. Our reasoning is motivated by a will to prevent
legal problems in the future. They say business is war - and quite frankly we don't want to create a situation
where a lawyer of a trivia-biz-siteX.com, comes to tele3d site and uploads a portion of their copyrighted
questions into our data systems. And if we would automatically label all inserted data as being 'free' for
all, we would be effectively distributing copyrighted property as 'free'. And the next week that same
lawyer person would litigate us for pirating their copyrighted 'property' and demanding millions.
Is that impossible, well we have met enough bonehead crooks in the past, for saying this scenario would be
possible enough. Therefore, we have to do like other trivia sites and forbid you from inserting any
illegally obtained material into our systems and say that all the inserted data belongs to the this site
and may not be distributed elsewhere without permission. Off cause “fair use” is
ok, where it applies.
