I just noticed that a few identical Heroscape pics have been submitted and accepted:


 

 


These are three separate images, with different text, but they appear to be identical.

This happens a LOT. I can only guess that different ,ods approved them not seeing the others first. Or, some people just click approve without looking.

As always, you can use the Submit Corrections form in the game entry, and an admin will have a look.

I this case, it looks like the image has been submitted to 3 different heroscape expansions, along with two other different images for each expansion.

So a geekmodder accepts this image and two others for the first expansion. Now three images come up for the next expansion. Can you tell for sure that one of them is the same image as one of the last set?

BTW heroscape has such a high number of images (and i assume, most of them customized components) that i can only "skip" new images for this game.

As I've said earlier: there should be something to discourage too many pictures of a game. Perhaps a sliding scale for BBG images: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1222260

Looks like it's been fixed; two of the images have been removed.

Look for a small tweaking to GeekMod in the near (right Aldie?) future to encourage a bit more attention from the modders.
