Could we have "Geekmode guidelines" on geekmode page like we had before. I've been geekmoding again (left without GG for tipping) and I've seen too much corupted and duplicated images get approved.

Maybe posting guidelines again will help.

I've been noticing dupilcate photos being approved over the past couple of weeks as well. Here are a few examples:

My guess is that a number of GeekModders simply click the approve button as if it were a cow's teat, milking it for GeekGold...

I've been seeing a lot more than those in terms of duplicates. I've seen the same image posted 3 days in a row with all three getting accepted.

I should start a GeekList of photo duplicates on BGG!

I keep getting robbed of good GeekGold by appropriately declining duplicates, only to have others approve of the duplicates.

Likewise. And it's cluttering the image galleries.

My guess is that GeekModders who milk GeekMod for GeekGold do it by simply clicking the decline button, since declined images garner far more GG for the modders than approved ones.

Although photos are accepted at least ten times more often than they're declined. Choosing "approve" all the time would actually yield more GeekGold over the long term.

Now they're doing it with duplicate game reviews!:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/401968
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/401969

In defense of the GeekModders, it's impossible to quickly see if the exact same review or session report has been already submitted. (Unless they came through the pipe at the exact same time, and the modder doesn't bother to actually read the reviews...)

According to their time stamp, they did go through at the same time.

And i have to admit that i have "accepted" duplicates in the past. Click on the accept button, nothing happenes, click again.
(this was before you got to select the GG amount, but i can still see people assuming browser malfunction)

So that's how I do it eh?

One shiny avatar coming right up. Time to go mash that 'approve' button and watch the dubloons start rolling in...

I share your pain. I spend the time (maybe 10 seconds?) to look through the already approved images to see if the proposed image is a duplicate. When I reject duplicates, I get denied gg cents for the effort and the people who were too rushed to look through any older images get the gg when enough of them approve it. Lame.

How do we get people to actually check if they're approving duplicates?
