Teaser of the Day selection

It looks like the Teaser of the Day is chosen automatically by a program. Often a teaser is chosen on the same day exactly every 3 years.

A 3-year cycle means you only see about 1100 teasers. With over 17,000 teasers on site now, I suggest you try a 5-year cycle (about 1800 teasers). I have seen comments that people are tired of seeing the same teasers repeated.

I am amazed that you can remember a teaser that was chosen 3 years ago on the same day. What a memory! I'll look into the algorithm.

Have you visited Braingle lately?

It's not my memory, you can tell because the quiz of the day usually gets several comments.
For example, today's teaser (Feb 20), has 5 comments from Feb 20, 2015, then nothing until 8 comments Feb 20, 2012, then a bunch Feb 20, 2009.
