Algorithm for flashcards are so BAD

I always get first word "Menu" for german and almost every order is the same. I don't know some words and i am not trying to peek anymore so i can get them in flash cards but i always get something i know.

I'm not sure how flashcards are determined, but I agree. Most of the words I get are "full-bar" and many "one-bar" words never show up.

Not only that, but a word with low bars will get full bars if it came up in an exercise -- even if you got it wrong! So you can get a word wrong every time, but the algorithm will keep telling you that you know it really well.

I agree with that.
