Here it is:
Gizmo # 51 [siternetusa.com] (corrected - it is quiz #51 - could a moderator change the title?)

What is it exactly?
What does it do?

In my opinion jatar_k is the winner.
Sorry 4crests and coconutz, you lost on a technicality.

I think the rules for the quiz should be clarified.
For example:
Are we allowed to ask more than one question?
Is the URL of the gizmo picture required for the win?

Who will have the official word on the winner?
The moderators?

Anyway, I am out of here. It has been fun.

I was doing it for the fun, not the winning. It was nice to get away from work for a while. I will concede to jatar_k and coconutz. Well, I gotta go to a birthday party. Goodbye all.

korkus2000, I think Macguru should have final say on that. He gets angry with me when I tweak around with Gizmo quiz rules and regulations- it's really scary. ;)

I think answering the question is implicit to any quiz. Url are not required if not explicitely required in the questions.

The quiz master have the final decision.

Here is the New Official Gizmo Quiz Scoreboard [vif.com]. ;)

<added>We are always open to suggestions to improve the rules. It's just that any over regulated game, is not fun anymore.</added>

well that was a surprise.

Are we going to have a game next week? Won't we all be in london? I will be so if there is one I can't host. I would be happy to do it the next week though.

As long you can master it, I can host it. I will pass a turn on eligibilty.

If you can't master it, it's up to the current quiz master to decide wich volunteer will do it next week.

Any volunteers?

By "hosting" I just meant putting the pic on a server. By "mastering" I meant doing all the rest, posting, answering questions, giving clues, ect.

I understand you will have other things to do next week. (like dating gothic London girls, or to find a place where you can have chips that does not taste like fish...)

So do you officially decline on hosting or mastering the next game?
(you know this could mean the end of your reputation, dont you?)

Sorry jatar_k,

You wont sneak out that easy!

If you decline your responsability in such a blatant way, we will do all to make you feel miserable.

I am not eligible to master the next quiz since I did not participate in it, before you won.

I do not volunteer, and technically cannot do so.

I hope some active participant will volunteer for next week, otherwise...

I did "master" for oilman last week to make up for the fact that I only win when I can't do it the next week.

I guess I owe another one now. I could volunteer a good gizmo, I just will happen to be in london and all that.

As far as I understood the rules, I second Mac... the winner has to correctly answer the questions posed by that week's quiz host. If the host asks for a URL, they need to supply it... if not, they just need to answer the questions.

I got quite a few of my points on questions where I did not supply a URL...

(Broken? Apparently my deductive reasoning skills could use a tune up... I was searching for "cryo" but without the "pump".)

hehe, me too

I was just supplying a definition, I didn't rightly think I would win. The thought never crossed my mind actually.

defanjos, you going to see if someone wants to bail me out of this one and volunteer to do it. Maybe 4crests or coconutz, you two want to volunteer?

Rule # 5

If the winner declines to host the next game, the current host should pick which volunteer (within participants of the week) will host the next game.

Sorry mack!

Macguru, thanks for the temporary title - King Defanjos has a good ring to it :)

We need a volunteer for next week's quiz
Anybody?

Mack, according to the rules you cannot do it, but, if we don't get any volunteers, I think we should let you do it. But, the decision is not up to me.

***VOLUNTEERS NEEDED***

Sorry defanjos, might be "off island" next week-end or I would. Since so many members will be away next Saturday and we're having trouble getting a host, how about postponing the Gizmo Quiz for a week and let jatar_k host?

Can we do this Macguru?

Hi coconutz,

Transfering the game to each other every week was the main fix to my occasional availability problems. We already skipped a few when I was hosting all the games alone. For this game to become a tradition, the show must go on. I think postponing it is not an option.

I read we already have one volunteer. It's up to King Defanjos to fix a deadline and make his choice.
