I usually love your quizzes, but just hate this format. This is the only clickable %s quiz I have played, so I can't compare to the others. I think it would be improved immensely if you kept the order the same every time -- I don't mind the landmine stuff so much as I couldn't remember the order once I got past the first few. So I ended up playing it like 15 times without finishing it, when if the order was the same I could have just remembered where to click before having to make a decision again.

Okay, I can make the answers alphabetical every time if that helps. I hoped that providing the actual numbers along the way were helpful in reminding which answer was which.

Good idea - bad execution. The mine part is completely unnecessary. I failed with the first answer, but I won´t try and try again until I have all the answers right.
Oct 8th, 2012 at 06:21 GMT
This might be a great time to suggest another way to set it up. Otherwise, can't complain about the mines. The whole point is to choose answers from highest to lowest. Skipping around defeats the purpose.

3 tries, and I think I know what I'd like to see added...the percentages that meet each category in the clue, not after you get it right. If you do that, maybe drop the time a minute. Otherwise, I find this quiz quite unenjoyable.

I like the idea, but this particular dataset is frustrating as it drops from 84% to 34% on the 2nd one! Then all the rest are so close as for the difference to be trivia (must know the precise fact to get it right) vs knowledge (can estimate based on a general familiarity of the topic).

This is your hardest one yet, the percentages are so close. I'm from the US, and I have absolutely no idea after the first one. I can't imagine anyone from outside the states could get this in under 8 or 10 tries. Maybe choose questions with a wider range.

@Pogues - Will give it a shot, since clearly this can't be more hated the way it is. Thanks!

If you're going to give percentages in the clue, drop the minefield aspect. If we guess wrong, we don't get credit for that one. I believe there's an option to disable the "skip" feature. A lot of people have grown to despise minefield quizzes except in very rare cases. (Hence the low rating.)

Fun, but extremely tiring. I doubt it is completable on someones first try though.
Oct 9th, 2012 at 15:14 GMT
@debbie- Did it! It's makeover time, baby!

Does the four syllables include California, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia? Sporcle could argue about that for days like they do about Laos.
