Slide shows end once they've shown all the slides. Why is that?

Question

I was (secretly) hoping that I would be able to create a slide show that was set for a certain run time, say 30 minutes. But if  I don't have 30 minutes worth of slides (of whatever type), the action just ends after it has displayed all the slides that are there.

What I'd like to see, if possible, is the ability for the slide module to realize that it has no more slides in its inventory, and goes back and replays the slides again (possibly randomizing the order for the next run-through).

Admittedly, the last time I  tried this was during last summer, but it has come up as a desire again.

FWIW, I found where to make the change in the script source code in order to support this particular need. More details will be (hopefully) in a pull request to the github repo.

That works! We'll have our developer verify and merge the change in the next release.

I'm debating whether to make the change to include an option to enable the behavior, just in case people have been relying on the "old way" of Trivia slides working. So it may be a couple weeks depending on my workload.

That's exactly what we were going to do, so by all means. :D Even if you submit with what you have we'll make sure there's an option for people who don't want it to work that way.
