It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Can you not detail in the caption why these are being added? Not everyone will recognise them for what they are.

If you used a descriptive caption and placed it in the Creative category, I don't know how it could be declined. What were the reasons given for the declined image?

Why are they rejected? Maybe the mods did not see that you are the designer. So they want it in the creative category instead of game, where it would belong if it were selfmade.

What BGG needs is a way to map a designer's BGG account to their own designs. It's ludicrous, as is happening here, that the designer of the game needs to go through GeekMod to upload content about his own game!

If it still doesn't get through, you could submit all the images/files needed for the game as a file.

You said it.
It is one of the the things you print to produce this print&play game, right? So the whole triplet (or how many colored sheets there are) should be a file.

If you need all 3 colored sheets to play, you should have used a caption like "pint&play components 1/3: Black dice". Then you would have a much better chance to get them all through geekmod. Otherwise it isn't clear why adding another similar sheet adds to the gallery.

And no, i didn't mod the images.

BGG needs a mod-busters brigade. Create a thread where anyone can call bullshit on the latest geekmod fiasco. A group of volunteers who don't regularly mod can subscribe to the thread. Whenever they see a new post, 20-30 of them can all login to geekmod at once to overwhelm the evildoers with superior numbers.

Post it at night. It seems more images go through at night than the day because less people are trying to get that extra .04 geekgold.

It's funny though. You could take a picture of a safety pin next to a copy of Race for the Galaxy, Settlers of Catan or Agricola and I bet it would go through with no problem.

I accepted it after having a hard time to realize where the differences to the already existing "white dice" were. If geekmodders have to do some research before they vote, they will decline an image.

Please add a useuful caption (or contribute them all as one file, as suggested) - you can edit it later on, if you think, it`s unappropriate for the image in the gallery.
