ruby.cards

Hi everyone,

I'm not a ruby dev but we did choose Ruby as the backend for our quiz game
platform - and one of those quiz games is about ruby ( https://ruby.cards )

I posted about this a few years back, when we launched, and have been
lurking since.

Anyways, these days we are focusing on other projects, and wondered if
there was anyone in the list who'd be interested, or know someone who might
be interested, in sponsoring (or even purchasing) the game?

To explain how it works - you answer Ruby questions to gain reputation and
rise through the ranks and leaderboards, unlocking new features at each
level (including multiplayer and quiz creation). The way to get a _really_
high score is to submit new questions for other players to enjoy.

The site is documented: https://docs.ruby.cards

Our biggest quiz game has 5,000 players but so far ruby.cards has attracted
just 121 (we don't do any marketing though)

I've just given it a run.
The questions are nice.
Direct and simple.
I made some comments on 2 of them.

Congratulations for the work. I hope more people get interested in it
from now on.

Nice! I can see a lot of potential for apps like this in the hiring process.

Thanks Abinoam / hmdne!

The platform itself (the ruby backend) supports several other frontend quiz
games, namely:

   - Sasensei.com - knowledge of SAS software
   - Pilot.Cards - aviation knowledge
   - Yoga.Cards - aimed at yoga instructors
   - JS.Cards - javascript
   - Serbian.Cards - Serbian language and culture
   - Insure.Cards - insurance
   - PyGrail.com - python
   - quizr.io - language of R

We also made a data orientated one (cdoquiz.com) that doesn't have any
questions yet.

The project is basically on hold from a development perspective, pending an
uptick in grassroots user interest or investor attention.

Hello!
Could you tell us some words - what is it for, what it does, or some
usage-examples?
thank you

Of course!

We built a community quiz game using Ruby for the backend (API) and React
on the frontend. It was created to support multiple frontend games with
the same backend - adding a new quiz game is just a case of artwork /
design / populating the initial questions.

Once launched, players earn reputation by answering questions correctly.
They earn even more reputation by SUBMITTING questions for other players to
enjoy. Our biggest game has new questions being added every day. New
questions go through a review process, and must be approved across 6
dimensions by at least 3 reviewers. As you play the game, you rise through
the ranks, and gain new privileges. Questions are submitted in markdown.
All questions have explanations.

Example features:

* Badges
* Certificates
* vanity URL
* multiplayer games
* build your own quiz
* documentation site (eg https://docs.ruby.cards/ )
* Teams feature (play as a team)
* Chat (chat within a team)
* Referral scheme
* Advertising slots (globally or individual country)(

For ruby.cards, we apply ruby syntax highlighting for code blocks.

We'd like to add Bitcoin support (lightning network) next, in several areas:

* rewarding creators
* prize fund for multiplayer
* token purchases

Just need some justification for the additional investment. When we add a
feature for one game though, all the other games benefit..

main is self inside the top binding. Basically it's an instance of an

Object.

What else? :slight_smile:

I meant: "what more?" (not basically?)

- I knew there are ways to get the content of my local x !

more answers that I'm able to handle per time...
thank you folks! :slight_smile:

Fun website. Thanks for sharing. I think I would have nailed every
question if I did not misread case insensitive as case sensitive. As a
result, I'm 4th in the leaderboards (Shux!)

There is an algorithm, based on pass rate - the questions get progressively
harder as your streak continues!

If you have any issues with question clarity or format - you can leave a
comment, which will result in a notification for the contributor. You can
also downvote, which may flag a review (depending on number of existing
question upvotes).

The country/regional/global leaderboards strongly favour contributors, who
earn reputation with every upvote.
