Seeking a new Quizmaster

Dear Rubyists,

You may have noticed a substantial drop off in Ruby Q.zes over the
past few months. I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth, but with
my current projects I’m unable to make time for administering Ruby
Quiz. It is with some sadness but with many fond memories that I’m
resigning from the role of Quizmaster.

There were some good ones
http://rubyquiz.strd6.com/quizzes/193-game-of-life
http://rubyquiz.strd6.com/quizzes/202-digits-of-pi
http://rubyquiz.strd6.com/quizzes/229-music-theory

as well as some less good ones
http://rubyquiz.strd6.com/quizzes/216-dwarf-name-generator

It is the strength of the Ruby community that made the role so
educational and enjoyable for me, and I hope I was able to educate and
entertain you as well.

A special thanks to the people who submitted quiz ideas, everyone who
submitted responses, and the people who stepped in to write the
occasional summary.

Indeed, thank you very much for these quizzes !

Well, is somebody interested in becoming the next Quizmaster ?

The problem nowadays is likely to find good challenges which appeal
Rubyists on the list I think.
That is harder because they are already many quizzes (234 ! awesome !).

I often wanted to solve old quizzes, which were done before I was on the
ML.
While I did some for myself, I did not post the solution to these old
mails.

Maybe some of the most interesting and the oldest quizzes should be
“opened” again and we could see what kind of solutions we come to with
a newer Ruby and community.
Thoughts ?

Best regards,
Thank you so much to all Quizmasters,
Benoit D.,
Happy Quiz Solver :wink:

Thirded! Thanks to Daniel for a great job

I will not volunteer to be a quizmaster, because my free time tends to
happen in irregular bursts, but I will gladly contribute quizzes to
whoever does step up. In fact, if someone wants to put together a
team of quizmasters to handle the various aspects of the thing
(administration, coordination, setting and summaries), I’ll sign up as
the “official” quiz setter, supplying a quiz in any week that we don’t
have a guest submission.
