Repeated images on quiz

I love the quiz but the same pictures come up again and again and again. Even the most common birds have the same images. It makes the quiz pointless to play. Why is there not more variance? I know that I have dozens of images of different birds loaded so it cannot be due to a lack of photos in the database.

I don't know the answer, but I agree that there seems to be an issue with the algorithm used to generate photos for the feature. To be fair, it is very difficult to developer a truly random generator.

What location and date are you setting the quiz for?

My local area: Horowhenua District, New Zealand. It's not much better if I widen it to the whole of New Zealand though.

Maybe try setting a specific date and changing it every time you do the quiz? I've found that that gives a bit more photographic variance.
