I am absolutely astounded at the stupidity of the geekmod system here on BGG.

I have just tried a number of times to post the box cover art for BA1917 using a pre-release image that I happened upon.....

http://www.milsims.com.au/node/124168

This image was rejected because the "geekmods" said it was too similar. My question is... TO WHAT? There is no image like that here? Are people looking at the images? I know T-Mo had issues with rejection of the rulesbook, playbook and flight rosters. Does anyone care? For me this has gone past a joke. It is ridiculous. I see hundreds of images of the same Euro stuff going round but when someone tries to post some real content they can't!

... well that has got that out of my system... Rant complete!

Long ago I posted this picture for Here I Stand and it was rejected by mods.

Will never understand it.






Ever.

I like your pic. For a people shot it is a lot better than some of the others images on BGG.

The box art to Bloody April has been used before at least once; there was a magazine game called Red Baron which featured the same image.

You can kinda tell the image is a retread because the plane behind Richtofen is a Pfalz DIII variant; it didn't enter service until after the time period depicted in the game.
