Is there a way to sort or only see prospective quizzes by dificulty? I find I'm in the 5 or 6 range for enjoyment, and when I look at long lists and choose one and then see it is a 2 or an 8 it is frustrating.

Up on the menu bar click on trivia quizzes, from that drop-down menu click on choose subject and then pick whatever subject you like. When the results come up it will show you the author and the difficulty ranking.

Yes, I was just hoping you could *sort* by difficulty, as many times I'll se a quiz whose title interests me, and then look over and see it is a 2, or an 8, which I wouldn't want to take.

Anyway, just asking

Happy 4th of July,

Thing is though, although the difficulty shown does reflect directly the difficulty of the quiz, it is only based on who has taken the quiz.
You could find that the only people who have taken a certain quiz had no idea about the subject and thus the difficulty shows up as being an 8, but you yourself might find that if you took it you might find it quite easy.

For example, if somebody wrote a quiz on here about chocolate bars in America, then there is a good chance that it may have a low difficulty rating (perhaps a 1 or 2) well depends if the author has made it easy or But seen as I am not from America and have never been there and know nothing about chocolate bars in America, then I would probably be lucky to guess a couple of answers correct.

Point is for the majority of people it may be easy but for me it would be hard, and vice versa, you may find a quiz that others have found difficult but you yourself would find easy.

I think at the end of the day, sometimes it is just best to do the quizzes with names you like and if you do well then great, and if you don't then at least you come out the other side having learnt something new.

Hope that makes sense
