I can't be the only person who doesn't understand why certain images are accepted and others are rejected, but this seems like it might at least help the tiniest bit without being too much work...

On the GeekMod History page (particularly for images, but could be true for all), if an image (etc.) is declined, could we see WHY the image was declined? It might help us vote better in the future if we understand why images are being rejected.

I agree with this. I have done quite a bit of GeekModding recently and it would certainly help to know how the majority of other GeekModders are guaging the submissions.

I agree.

What is even more frustrating is the inconsistency. There was one picture the past week that was rejected. I accepted it because it was the only pic for that game. I assume it was rejected because it was a tad bit fuzzy.

A couple days later, it was resubmitted. Looked exactly the same. So I went ahead and went with he majority and rejected it this time. It ended up getting accepted.

It just seems whoever logs in that day is a crap shoot. There really is no rhyme or reason to it all. Clear duplicates are always getting approved along with questionable copyright issues. I am starting to loose interest in it because it just seems like people nonchalantly click approvals without actually moderating the site.

I agree. Explicit modding guidelines may be helpfull as well. (When is a pic too similar, when is it too big? Do we have lower standards for games with less or no pics? (I do!) etc.)
