It appears to me to be:

* cropped
* slanted
* blurry
* underexposed

For instance, compare it to:



Yet after going through geekmod it already has the 3 magical thumbs.

Complain complain complain

I am also unsure why this



was needed to supplement this



but maybe someone noticed that the earlier image was somewhat slanted? And hey, the new pic only got 1 thumb.

Because GeekMod sucks and is incompetent, just like the submitters who don't care if their pictures are needed or not and decide to flood GeekMod, because worst thing that could happen is their pics get rejected.

I can confirm you are complaining about those pictures!

Seriously though, both should have been rejected as similar. Part of the problem I think is that it takes too much time to check the entire game gallery; first scanning each page to see if there are similar images, and then zooming in any possible matches to see if they are different languages or something. If there's more than a few pages it becomes a real burden. So some people seem to click accept by default, even when there are only a few pages to check.

What is needed I think is a way to GeekMod an image out of the game gallery and into the submitter's personal gallery. This could be used to de-clutter duplicates and images where an early poor quality version is superseded by a later better quality version. The move should keep thumbs, tips, comments and the image ID intact.

Or, at least allow GeekModders to filter existing images by the usual categories (box front, play etc) to cut down on the amount that has to be waded through.
