I submited this picture recently.
It has been declined and the funny commnent was:
why on earth is the hand in the picture?

WHY ???
Because I managed to take a pic where a figure is shot by another one and I need to press the bouton to make the figure shoot !!!!
I'd wait for a divine intervention during one day long not to put my hand in the pic. Finaly a decided to press myself the button to shoot the figure ! Hey !
That's why my hand is in the pic !
If you have another good idea man, please give it to me !

why on earth is the hand in the picture? yukshake

For a declined pic of a Horrific deck (admittedly not the BEST pic BGG has ever seen), I got the message:

"Ha! Thanks for the 0.1gg!"

Maybe not 'incredible', but it wasn't particularly helpful either.

To submit a Chess pic, is always hard for me.

This one (Caption said: "Marcel Duchamp in 1963 playing Chess with Eva Babitz on his own retrospective. Photo made by Julian Wasser, used by permission") got over 70 thumbsup, just being in my personal gallery.

One reason for being declined was:
"Reason: The image was spam."

Then I submitted two pics of my small traveller set with pegs and holes. This one, showing the whole game with the cushioning in the top was declined.

One of the reasons was:
"Reason: The image was sideways or upside down."

I had hoped to include this image in my "poison pills" geeklist noted here which specifically references counters and benefits from images of them!

It was rejected as "too offensive" but somehow also as "too similar to images already on BGG" along with 4 or 5 other spurious reasons!

Here's the text of my geekmail reply to the rejection:

We're sorry that we couldn't use the recent image that you uploaded to BGG related to '', and it was removed it from the system.

Reasons:
Reason: The image was too blurry.
I enlarged it and sharpened in order not to get the "too small" msg.

Reason: The image was offensive.
I see your point but this image is everywhere on BGG in the WWII games categories - as are Stalin, Mao, etc...

Reason: The image was too small.
I specifically resized it to meet the posted spec.

Reason: The image was a duplicate or too similar to an image we already have.
Well, its not a duplicate so see next...

Reason: The image was too similar to another image already in the database.
Hmmm... similar to those inoffensive ones?

Reason: The image was irrelevant to the subject.
Central to the game itself

Comments (optional):
It's already on one of the counter sheets that are in the gallery.
Actually it is taken from a file in Dave Jones's "Aide de Camp" module for the game which incorporates copies and/or modified publisher graphics with their permission and which permission Dave has extended to me. I enlarged and "buttonized" it and it is only very closely representative of the countersheet image.

BloodyBucket,

Thank you for your recent image submission to BGG. The image is declined. First of all, that kid is ugly. There must be something wrong with your camera, otherwise I can only cringe at what the father must look like. Really, get a bag for him. Yuck.

Secondly, the composition reminds me of flatulence, the focus is wrong, although this might be a blessing in view of the ugly kid, and the lighting can only be explained by the phosphorescent glow of decay that is your skill with a camera. The tilting table makes me ill, and close the damn doors!

Lastly, I hate that game, and your set up is all wrong...no wonder you lose wargames to small children! You suck, go away and never submit anything again.

Love,
Mother



(OK, I exaggerated. "Too similar to another image" IIRC, but that's what my one and only decline felt like.)

This one was rejected as "sideways or upside down." Wow.

Here's a corrected version for that special mod.
