Hey guys!

Have question. Last night I uploaded couple of rare Croatian and ex-yu VHS covers (and have more to upload)...there are even some versions that weren't uploaded before on this site, but for some reason they where all rejected except one (this one http://www.movieposterdb.com/poster/4ae1ee58 ).

Why is that's so?

good question!
I've uploaded some posters which are rejected and few days later i saw the posters valid for another person.
I send a 6 messages and no answer ?

You should talk to a Moderator called RoLe as he was the one who approved "Tang shan da xiong" cover.
About series posters it's always a tough one, because promo shots and wallpapers aren't allowed here, but sometimes users keep on uploading such stuff. There's also a strong possibility of inattention from somebody or two different opinions on the same thing. Whatever, we're sorry, every case should be considered individually.

Yeah, thanks for the answer. I did upload some of these VHS covers later and most of them where accepted. So I will upload more and will see what will happened...

Thanks again...

Hello guys!

I don't want to open new thread just for one question so I will ask my question here. I was trying to upload Yugoslavian version of Casablanca poster...its this version...

http://www.movieposterdb.com/poster/4f302b57

This version that is uploaded is 450 x 648 pixels, and I have HD versions 2193 x 3200 pixels. But it was rejected twice all ready...why is that so? Shouldn't better quality version replace lower quality version?
Thank you for you answer.

It definitely should. Try to reupload the poster one more time and I'll put my eye on it.

That happens to me all the time but I don't reupload cos I'm afraid they remove some of my uploads,I read they'll do it if a poster was rejected an reuploaded.

Hi guys. A textless upload of mine was just rejected, though it appears to meet all site requirements for uploads. I've had a number of similar rejections over time for images not currently on the site which were rejected even though they appear to meet or exceed all requirements. The current rejection is below. Could a moderator please PM me to discuss? I'm really unclear as to what is going on here and don't want to waste the mods' time with uploads that are just going to be auto-rejected. Thanks in advance! I look forward to hearing from you.

As it seems that you are a mod, what are the rules in regards to Key Art as well as full VHS cover art, specifically VHS art that wraps around the back, spine and front?

I've had my VHS (full art) for CLONUS accepted (https://www.cinematerial.com/movies/the-clonus-horror-i78062/p/bufgoomf), but whenever posting full art for HOT RESORT (https://www.cinematerial.com/movies/hot-resort-i89305/p/xzb1yy1d), CHILDREN OF RAGE (https://www.cinematerial.com/movies/children-of-rage-i72778/p/ibt9muyb) and FIGHTING BACK (https://www.cinematerial.com/movies/fighting-back-i83936/p/barame7g) they were all rejected.

and why was this deleted?

are there some mods making things personal? becuase there are times where it feels like it.

1) precedent has been established that this site preserves cinematic artwork (hence no ads nor lobby cards), which as stated in my post, includes full VHS cover art "if the art wraps around the entire cover." I can understand not including the spine or back if there is no artwork to preserve, but when I have full cover art on the site, why not allow all VHS artwork if the artwork wraps around?

2) the image you linked to is an inferior image to the one I posted. The one you linked to is faded in color, whereas my image was an improvement/upgrade.
