Why am I seeing the same image over, and over, and over again?

    Dear Moderator,

    I am having a real problem with repeated images. It feels like I have classified some galaxies half a dozen times and they keep coming back. This is neither fun nor helpful. There is no option to skip an image, so I am forced to classify again. Help!!!

    Hi @annals and thank you for your help in classifying ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Do you have the ID of the image that you keep on getting to classify? It will help us to troubleshoot the problem.

    As for the skip button - we really need you to classify the images you are presented - even if it is; difficult / a duplicate or an artifact. If it was possible to skip, only the easy images would be completed by the volunteers and we would be left with a bunch of images that no one wants to look at. Yes, some of the images are not fun, but it is all for science! On the plus side, you will come across galaxies that will make you go WOW ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
