No more damned cat pictures!!! I'm sick of them! Your animal is not cute to anyone but you and it's no longer amusing. angry

And babies! Keep babies out of the photos too! (See above)

Dogs are OK. Who doesn't like dogs?

And has anyone seen my GoldBond Medicated Powder? I'm itchy!

[edit]
Can we add a "Cats and babies" reason for rejecting a pic in Geekmod?

Could we please have more cat pictures? I want to see everyone's cat.

EDIT: I'm neutral on the baby issue.

I think we need more game pictures with road-kill cats. and while your at it, put a cigarette in their cold dead mouthes holding a bottle of jack daniels. That always kills around here!

I'd also like a "Spurious Meeple Addition" rejection checkbox on the GeekMod too.

What's up with adding meeples in submitted game images?

Oh look, here's an image of Ticket to Ride trains being held up in the air by Carcassonne meeples...

Big A OK on cat pictures (and other frivolous types of photos) for the galleries from me.

We're gamers, we're about fun, these things are fun! It makes sense to me to include them.

So rather then whining like a 5 year old how about you just avoid the pictures/lists/posts in question?

I have nothing against cats or babies or dogs in the pictures but I think that what we really need is more pictures of cute blondes (or brunettes or any colour they come in) holding some cards in front of their smiling faces!

I can't stand most of the cat/baby pictures either.

If a baby isn't related to me, it's just another humanoid larva**.

And I don't think the standard "cat in game box" is clever or cute. We get it. They like to climb in boxes. Honestly, is that the best you can do?

Now, if you've got a hypernifty picture of your cat that's different. Like maybe the cat in a meeple suit. Or the cat defecating on a copy of Caylus.

Dogs playing poker. Now that is cool.



**Note: To date, there is only one expection to this rule.

Bravo. I was thinking the same thing today while reading a thread about the submission of images with non-standard components.

The subject of the images should be relative to the game. I can see the humor of placing a cat in an image where the game is about cats, dogs, mice, fleas, etc. but most of the pet images I see bear no resemblance to the game.

Yes! Perfect statement on the tragedy of parenthood! Practically a visual haiku. (Or koan?)

Didn't you get the memo? Apparently it's cute as all hell to take pictures of your cat sitting in a box. It's also HILARIOUS to post pictures of things like a spoon full of meeples or a piece from Samurai in a picture for Hansa. Man...my belly STILL hurts.

Whoa Timmy! You're not called Evil for nothing, are you!?

Think of them less as cats and babies, and more as proto-gamers. Cats clearly want to play games. That's why they sit around your house looking bored. They are bored. They're waiting for you to get a game out.

And babies? Well here's one natural resposne:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/96383

What are babies but gamers in waiting?

As for dogs, well they are just dumb beasts. Loyal but dumb. Of course they'll sit at a table and have their picture taken with a game. But a cat, a cat won't just sit there, it joins in the game.

Now get off the couch, Timmy.

This actually isn't a bad idea. As much as I like to see pictures of cats, uploading a ton of pics of them to a board game site isn't the best of things to do I would think. A picture of a cat in a game box doesn't really help me decide whether I want to try the game or not.

Quick! Change the parameters of the argument!

You can still argue about whether custom components would be considered "off-topic".
