Are you sure it got accepted, or it was into a game gallery and not your personal gallery? The reason I ask is that you'd generally get a geekgold credited to your "collected GG" list you had a picture accepted into a game gallery. Since you don't, something must have gone wrong somewhere. You do not get a GG (or a credit on your "contribution" page) for a picture submitted to your personal gallery.

I would go back to the game page and click "upload" in the images area of the game again. Send it a second time, and see if it works...


edit: of course, if your picture is already showing up in the images area of the proper game, then you probably just need to contact an admin about your GG and "Contribution page" credits.

That's odd. Is the picture showing up in the game page's gallery?

I thought one of the admins said that system generated items (which I would think would include GG for submissions) was only done once a day.

I heard that about geekbadges, but I'm pretty sure you get your GG more or less right away.

Unless something has changed recently, that has usually been the case. GG is appears at the time the image is accepted.

Is this the picture you uploaded?

 


If so I think I know what happened.

You uploaded this photo to your personal gallery than linked it to Stalingrad.

That will not get you geekgold.

To get the geekgold for a submission you have to upload it directly to the games gallery, not your own gallery.

To do that you go to the game gallery THEN choose upload.

Hope this helps.

Can you guess how I knew what you did? whistle

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I did the exact same thing ... twice, with probably more cursing than you used.



Here's the GG you should have gotten, I like the picture and saw that you used in a thread on old School counters.

Oh yea, Welcome to BGG.
