I've added a game to the database and that has been OK'd, and now I've added images to the entry. THEY have been approved as well... but when you look at the game entry, it doesn't have a default image.

How do you set this?

Thanks!

Browse the gallery, click on 'more' beneath the image you want, and then 'Propose image'.

Then wait for the mods to reject it.

Something to note: you can only nominate your own image if it doesn't currently have an image (in this case, it would be fine). If you want one of your images to be the new default for a game, you have to get one of your friends (or sock puppet accounts) to do it.

Also: you can NEVER propose the same image yourself twice, and if an image is rejected, NO-ONE can propose it again for some unknown period of time.

Go to Browse Images (usually under the representative image, and below in the image section), find the image you want, then click on "more..." Finally click on "Propose Representative Image".

But, if there was a mistake in setting the Representative Image, Admins can set it manually.

How?

I made a mistake with two of my games and would really like to add the correct image, but nothing happens.

Can an administrator please help me with this?

You may not need an administrator. Exactly what's wrong? Did you put the wrong image with the wrong game? Set the wrong default image? Or...? And "nothing happens" when you do what?

The image I set as default was not being shown in the upper left corner.

It's been corrected by an administrator now.

Thanks!
