Does the "difficulty" slider have a rough translation to kyu/dan ranks?

lh Hi everyone. Thanks to everyone who has worked on this site. I'm about a week into my free trial and I will definitely be subscribing at the end of the month.

I'm just wondering if anyone has a guideline for how the "difficulty" slider (when selecting lectures/problem sets) maps roughly to kyu/dan ranks? I know I can go through the problem sets one at a time and see if I find them too basic or not, but if I had a quick heuristic for figuring out what is more or less my level, that would speed things up a lot!

lh Ah, I found an older post, it looks like there isn't a clean cut answer to this.

I suppose that makes sense; people can advance to strong ranks on the strength of different parts of their game. I'm learning a lot from doing the joseki starting at level 1. My main weakness!
