Hi

I tried to upload wallpapers of celectia in different size for different screen resolution tagging this information for admins.

I imagined 2 results :
- only the biggest could be uploaded
- all would be accepted

but i'm a little bit disturbed by the result.
The smallest have been accepted and some other have been accepted and not the others.

Admins : Could you please explain me how it has been chosen in order not to disturb you anymore with this kind of error.

thanks

If you mean uploading images to a game gallery, those decisions are made by geekmod (random volunteering users), not admins, and there is no guaranteed consistency or logic to the decisions.

Just took a look at the wallpaper, some cool shots! I noticed two of the files are the same - if you have multiple sizes of the same wallpaper, they will be declined. Also, the wallpaper is watermarked, which can also lead to a declined image.

It might be best to upload a composite shot of all the available wallpapers, and then in the description link to a geek file which contains all of the images, or link to an off BGG website where the wallpaper can be found.

(side note, I'm not sure what BGG's policy is regarding wallpaper.)

Which order did you upload them in? If the smallest was first, then it could be that that was approved and then a lot of people decided that the later versions were too similar, even if a higher resolution.

If doing this again it probably makes more sense to upload the highest resolution first. I don't personally think the galleries need to have multiple copies of the same image at different resolutions.

the problem is that not only the size change, the ratio is not the same...

You could collect them in a zip file and upload to the files section.

The image gallery is designed for users to see interesting, cool, and unique images about a game. Having lots of duplicates of one image degrades the gallery by making more interesting images harder to get to.

If you decide to resubmit the artwork, without the publisher's logo, submit one image to the game's gallery. If you have other versions, like with a different ratio, you can put them in your user gallery and display them in a comment beneath the corresponding image, so that people can see them all together.

OK fixed everything has been removed. The policy of BGG does not allow me ti publish artworks with the BLAM logo, so Sorry BGG Users you will have to get to our website to get wallpapers.
