I uploaded a picture and attempted to link it to Hey That's my Fish and Cowabunga... it's an action shot of an actual game. The link to both HTMF and Cowabunga was denied, but there were no comments for why. Would it be poor form for me to resubmit? Or is it against some rule that disallows what I thought a clever image was from being listed in the listing for both games?

Linking images from your personal gallery to game galleries is not allowed. You can upload an image to one game gallery and after approval by geekmod, you can then suggest to link it to the other game gallery.

aha....I guess I didn't see the option to upload to a game gallery. Off to find that feature.

Is that in any FAQ? [Edit: Yup, the linked FAQ has an update from last week.] If it's true, that loophole should be closed in the software. I've done this a couple times without incident.

Does this mean all the images (good or bad) previously linked from personal galleries will be retroactively de-linked?
