About the challenge difficulty, can anyone sort it right?
This is how I understand, is it true?

Undergrad-Easy
PhD- Difficult
Mad Scientist- Very Difficult
Superhuman AI- Impossible

If it's true, shouldn't there be something between PhD and undergrad that means moderate difficulty? Because I saw a lot of challenges are PhD even though it's not that hard.

I think that topic deserves it's own thread ;) Yes, I agree that a level between Undergrad and PhD would make sense and while I've suggested some names for such new difficulty none really would stick.

Glad that someone agree. I'm not good with names and term so , I'll leave for someone that's capable to do so.

@Megathosto14, yes it is the correct ordering. I think it's already hard as it is to differentiate between 4 different difficulty levels. If there was a too big difference between undergrad and phd I would rather mark more challenges as phd and mark some of the phd as mad scientist and so forth. I've made a suggestion for different (hopefully more evenly distributed and consistent) difficulties here:

I really loved "Population Bottleneck", "Stimulus", "Colors", & "Moss IVF", those challenges were the best! I wish "Nanobot" was a bit easier..

Glad you enjoyed them!

Nanobot is one of those that are not supposed to be easy but give your brain a true workout in order to find a solution :)

47: Balloons can now be solved without Neurocytes since there are other, non-signal substance stimuli the Buoyocyte can react to. Would you consider that an issue?
