I've been uploading some pictures for new ( I created myself) and existing games. No problems so far.

Now I want to set the representing image for a new game. The image that comes in the top left corner of the games page. While geekmodding I came several times across data-items. That's the thing I think I need. How can I add this?

Tnx

Go to the game page & Browse the Gallery. Click on the More Details link under the image you want, and you'll see a link to propose it.

Could it be that this function is currently inactive?

I recently uploaded a picture to a new game to the respective games gallery, and when clicking on "More Details" I only get a page saying "TEMPORARILY DISABLED".

Is there another way to add a representing image?

There is a trick to this If you open the image, and then click more info you get the message you mention. But if you go to "Browse Images" and then click the "More Info" under the thumbnail, you get the option to propose representative image.

D'oh. Thanks for this eye opener. Misread the "Browse the gallery" as "Click on the image and then click "more details".

Now I'm wiser. Thanks!
