    WANTED: Contest Master

    As many of you have noticed, the contest section of this site has been inactive recently because our Contest Master, ygfperson, has been extremely busy. Therefore, he has suggested that we find a new Contest Master. So the hunt is on.

    The job entails the following:

    - Coming up with contest ideas
    - Promoting contests
    - Running contests
    - Judging
    - Maintaining and improving the contest web page

    The benefits of the job will be revealed to the next contest master

    The job is open to all active members; the webmaster and moderators will choose the next Contest Master from a list of interested candidates. In order to apply you must state on this thread that you wish to apply, and either by posting, e-mail, or PM (preferably PM), say why we should pick you to be the Contest Master.

    If you have any questions please feel free to PM me or post them here.

    Please keep this thread free of off topic conversation; and please, do not campaign.

    I should note that this job is time intensive so please do not apply unless you really wish to undertake it.

    So far there are two applicants. If you don't have time to write an application right now, but you intend to apply, please feel free (read: please do this!) to post your intentions on this thread. (If you want it private PM me).

    However, we are trying to avoid all spam etc on this thread.

    Beginning the January 20th, I will have lots of spare time on the weekends, and little spare time on weekdays.
    I'd like to be contest master, but I suspect that the contest master should be available during the whole week.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to new contests.

    FYI, there are a few scripts I have on there to help automate updating information. When the new person is chosen, contact me somehow and I'll answer any questions about the web site.

    Another note: as Contest Master, it's up to you to decide what contests to run, and how they will be run. You're not obligated to keep them running like before.
    Beginning the January 20th, I will have lots of spare time on the weekends, and little spare time on weekdays.
    I'd like to be contest master, but I suspect that the contest master should be available during the whole week.
    During the contest itself you probably only need to check the progress of the contest and answer e-mails/private messages. The time-intensive part comes in judging and pressuring others to do the same. You might be able to schedule contests so that you can start and stop them on weekends, and spend a short amount of time on weekdays making sure everything's all right.

    Try to have fun doing this. There have to be rules to keep it fair, but remember you're dealing with programmers all over the world, across many platforms.

    I think that information would be confidential, as far as who has applied, as its their call not ours.

    As far as criteria, it was already given in this thread.

    I requested taht everyone who applied post their intentions here, so I'm going to assmue that anyone who did not post here would like it to be confidential.

    The criteria is simple...who the mods think will do the best job and be the most committed.

    (If it was pure commitment ROD would have won hands down, even though he didn't apply )
