PEOPLE IMAGES I've added numerous images for lots of people over the last couple months. Many have later been deleted, and I've been told to check the image rules, with a link. I've read the rules and obviously I couldn't upload the pics unless they meet that guideline. The sticking point comes when I'm told the images don't the other guideline of quality - admittedly there are a few pics that may have been grainy, usually due to the age of the pic (1980s or before) and sometimes it's the only pic found.

Apparently, the standards are quite high. I do understand making a great-looking website. I don't understand where the line is for approval. Is it to each mod's discretion? Or is there some way to measure? There are many crisp, clear, sharp images I've uploaded that have later been deleted. I don't see why they would.

It seems as if some standards are too high when it comes to images. Tons of pics of people from the 80's or before wouldn't be allowed by those standards. I have several examples of pics I added but later were deleted.

TV SHOWS - SEASONS & EPISODES IMAGES As far as TV series - season posters are supposed to be a different image for each season , but what if there are 10+ seasons with 1 or 2 good images? Then, just blank images. Then it's the same for every episode - different background images for each one. So, for series with 50+ or 100+ episodes ... every single image... Rather than, say, 1 show image for all, especially when it's an older show & no images, or very few, can be found.

All in all, with the rules & standards so high, seemingly by each mod's approval standards as to quality, this website may.just be full of blank images ... This is very frustrating for someone like me who has put in tons of work over the last few months ...
