So I uploaded two images for T.I.M.E stories giving what I thought was a pretty reasonable description (including to say it was from the publisher's game site).

The first one
http://www.spacecowboys.fr/img/games/time-stories/decksplori...

was rejected by the BGG admins because ... wait for it ... it is blurry!! (to avoid spoilers)

The second one

http://www.spacecowboys.fr/img/games/time-stories/decksplori...

was rejected because it is also blurry and too similar to the first!

Sheesh. wow Oh well.

Images are modded by the community and not admin.

Maybe the better thing to do is to put a description in the image comment and explain why it's blurry?

Those are the rules for images. I've had images rejected for less. Maybe with a game like this, the less we know the better.

Just make sure you explain the blurry parts in the comments section for the mod-ers - that way it surely will pass the modding process

Don't forget that the rewards for rejecting are (or, have been) 10 times higher for rejecting instead of accepting an image. This is an incentive to have a lower threshold for rejecting.

Do you have permission from the publisher to upload their images here? If not, then the mods are doing their job.

I've given up submitting images, having had similar stupid issues a few times.

The forum moderation here is usually benevolent and intelligent, but the images rules are plain stupid and the moderation horrible.

I agree (which is why I mostly stopped submitting images - even though I have hundreds of image submissions from my earlier years here). The one saving grace about it is that you can usually resubmit as a different time and get different GeekMods that will approve it.

Because, outside of flagging which in and of itself is not really moderation, that's handled by actual BGG mods, which are usually more even handed (logical) - of course, YMMV.

Because that's essentially handled by the BGG masses - users that have been here for two days can GeekMod, and that's pretty idiotic. A *person* can be intelligent, *people* are dumb and stupid (paraphrasing my fave MIB quote there). The GeekMod system could probably stand to be overhauled to something better (I've made several suggestions over the years, but the system remains the same and it's pretty much been the same brand of stupid since its inception).

As far as the images in question from OP - yeah, I would have rejected them too because they ARE blurry (thye look incomplete or corrupted). OP really should have noted WHY they look like that before coming here to complain about it as the fault was in the context of the OP submission and not explaining WHY they look like that - and, of course, they were approved when that info was given in the GeekMod image submission (see, the system is not totally asinine or unreasonable IF proper context or explanation is given with submission).
