I thought that when we changed the rules for quiz-creating, we stated that quizzes could range in difficulty from fairly simple to very difficult. I have been told (by an editor) that my quiz on "Kitchen Stuff" was too easy. He let it go, but said that they were trying to rid Sploofus of that type of quiz.

I thought as long as it is stated in the title or description that the quiz is EASY then it is fine to create that type of quiz.

I like to take that type of quiz sometimes. They doesn't rack the brain TOO much, and I can usually score well on them.

Is anyone else getting this comment on their quizzes?

Just to add to my last post--I just checked the results on my "Kitchen Stuff" quiz, and out of nine people, only SIX scored 100. That doesn't seem TOO easy to me.

Nope, but I haven't tried an easy one. Not judging, just saying. LOL

Wow, only six out of nine? I took the kitchen stuff quiz, and unless someone was going for pure speed, I find that hard to believe. The first question could trip a few people up (I won't post any details about it here, since that's a violation of the terms of use), though...

Although I think the quiz was hard enough to qualify as trivia, it _was_ right on the borderline (IMHO)...I think the point of the new rules was to avoid the "pure speed" quizzes and concentrate more on actual trivia.

I just took the quiz, so I could judge for myself. 13 of 18 had 100. The lowest score was 80. It was tremendously easy. I can't imagine what they could have missed. Maybe the solution is a separate category/scoring for speed quizzes of this nature.

I am one of those who scored 90% on the quiz. It was a slip of the finger. I will not blame my 2 year old or my mouse. It was purely my fault. Speed played a factor but the lack of reading the entire question was mine.
I am also not the cook in the house so I truly found the quiz quite hard. LOL

I'm from Tennessee where we cook roadkill on a woodfire and catch rainwater to boil it in. It might be too hard for me.
