It seems to me that lately a whole lot more Wargame Images and Articles are getting approved.I have no facts to back this up but I have noticed when I'm modding that many more seem to be getting through the modders than a few months ago.I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed this.

Do uploaded files go through the modding process? If so, I'd say that either the rules have changed for what sort of files can be uploaded, or the basis for acceptance is inconsistent.

I tried last week to upload the Cyberboard gamefile from the championship game in the current round of the BaM Ladder, and had it refused with the explanation that it was a "session report". I had been thinking of doing an actual session report, discussing why I made certain key moves, and directing users to the file for those who wanted to see the entire game.

My original motivation was that I noticed that the BaM Cyberboard gamefile already in the Files section had been downloaded over 500 times. Since there are only 800 owners and 1100 plays recorded for BaM, 500 downloads sounded like a good indicator that people want that sort of thing.

Don't the Administrators mod those?I was referring to the modding done by members.I have to agree with you though.I can't understand why that wouldn't be approved.

It seems to me that lately a whole lot more submitted wargame images have clear captions and a much better overall image quality. It looks like quite a lot of modders have noticed this

I'm not sure there's a point - wouldn't it just go back to whoever it was that already rejected it? They've got a lot of files to look at, and I'm sure it would be a pain if everybody who submitted something and had it bounced just re-submitted it. I don't want to annoy them.
