There exist a number of tools, such as LIMES [1] or SILK [2], which are able to create a high number of such links by using heuristics. The manual validation of verification of such links can be quite tedious, so we try to find out whether game based approaches can be used to make that task much more interesting. We developed the VeriLinks game prototype and ask for your help to judge how well the the validation works by playing the game and answering a few questions in a survey:
