Make sure you refresh.

I think sometimes the old screenshot can be cached when the quiz updates, meaning it displays the old picture when it should be displaying the new one.

Yep, happened to me too. It never reloads the image unless the user manually refreshes the page.

Then the fault is of the site using the same file name for the quiz - the code should create a random name so the browser will always update it. I had the same problem happening.

You can refresh just the image not the whole page, right click on the image and select "reload image" or whatever exact option depending on your browser.

Almost certain there will, but what and when are still a mystery.

I take it that writing reviews will do it. I'm still up for reviewing games - got sidetracked with James Bond Stealth Affair before :P started to review it but I needed to get further in the game and didn't have the time back then.
