I uploaded a picture of a promo card for a game earlier. And it's been rejected as being 100% incorrect content. This is a clear case of the people moderating the images not knowing the game and blocking legitimate content. I am seriously not liking this image moderation scheme.

I apologize if this isn't the correct place to post this, but I can't figure out where I am supposed to post it.

Overall I'm finding the process of submitting missing content to BGG such a hassle I might just give up and stop contributing. I fully understand moderating the creation of versions, editions, and so forth. But the image moderation is creating a chicken and the egg scenario.

Sometimes my submission for a version gets put on hold for lack of images. And my images get deleted because I cannot get them linked to the version before someone who doesn't know the game incorrectly swats them. There needs to be a way to link the two together before either get declined so that the moderators can see the whole submission including the images and make a more informed determination.

Thanks in advance for listening. BGG has a lot of great features. But this one needs a bit of massaging.

What was the promo card and where did you submit it? If you're talking about submitting it to a base game entry, that's not where promo cards should have their version entries.

Promo cards are either expansions (if they have unique rules - or change the gameplay someway), or accessories (if they don't).

Write a good caption. There is also Mod Note that you can give to the moderator.
