I posted this on a thread for memoir44 and received a"User submission declined" in my mailbox. Im gonna post the message here because Id like to know what the issue was with what I posted...ok ready, here it is.

"Im gonna pick up this expansion. My 5 year old son loves the games as do I. I figure I can pick up some different primers to color some of the units correctly.I figure the French... Blue, The Italians...a khaki. I think battlefront make an Italian Army primer."


What am I missing here? Admins, can you explain this to me?

Was this a new thread? Which dropdown did you use? Mebbe you chose Review or Session report by accident.

I am guessing you submitted it under the review or session report subforum of the game instead of its general forum.

It was posted in the "Reviews" subforum. Anything posted in there automatically goes through the geekmod process. Since your post was not a review, the users that modded it correctly declined it.

Feel free to repost it in the General subforum of that game.

That was on me. I must have done it on accident. Sorry about that.

Also, to be clear, admins really don't have much of a hand in doing approvals or declines for articles. Anything that needs to be moderated in that field passes through GeekMod, which is user-moderation handled through approve and decline votes. If you submit articles or images that are declined, it is because several users in the voting process voted for the image to be declined before a number of voters voted for approval. Though it's not a perfect system, it's fairly accurate in gauging how well a post or an image fits within the guidelines of what is wanted on BGG and good content.

I've had a few submissions declined, but that was because the images were too similar to what I submitted previously, and this was stated in the message from the mods. No problem with me, and now I avoid making the same mistake in my submissions.
