Stream: let's write a community puzzle!


#1

I’m bored.

I’m very bored.

I’m so bored I might actually lure myself into streaming something again. If my ISP permits, lalala. And if there’s any actual interest, naturally.

I was thinking about building a(n easy) community puzzle from the ground up, would there be any interest in that? My reasonable timeslot would be Saturday at 2100 CEST (that’s GMT+2) (until the 28th), but a more reCursive time of 1400 or so could be tolerable.

I’ve got a few topic ideas hanging in my queue, but I’d rather use one of yours here. Like, put the community back in community puzzle :smiley:

Any puzzle ideas? Other thoughts? Trolls and memes? Unix username I ought to use this time?


#2

Sure, let me discover that weird part of CG that I don’t know :smiley:


#3

I’ve been through my draft queue, and… nothing’s really an easy problem in there.

So an easy idea would be urgently needed. Or else we’ll just postpone, no biggie.


#4

Write the UI to an existing one like Breakout or CodinDice.


#5

Thanks for the suggestions!

I already got one for Breakout (it’s been needed at some time for puzzle moderation purposes)

But I can’t think of a proper way to shoehorn it in the I/O puzzle interface.

Ok, here’s for some self-motivation.

My rig seems to be in a tolerable-enough state. So barring real bad stuff, I’ll be streaming a community puzzle creation or two tomorrow evening.

Somewhere around 9pm CET.

Unless someone chimes up with a better idea (please do), it’s going to be a simple divide-and-conquer with dynamic programming extensibility.

And we’re live. https://www.twitch.tv/cg_jbm

And we’re done. Thanks for attending. The resulting puzzle is up for your moderation.

Apologies for forgetting to set up the stub generator live (it’s now fixed).

I’ll post a YT of the video once I get it trimmed, but I suppose it’s available somewhere on Twitch in the meantime.

JBM edit: I put it down, use the trimmed one (link below) now.

It’s all edited, trimmed and cleaned.
