#210204-183506-214502 declined, why?

Does IMDb really feel this picture is good enough: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0708475/mediaviewer/rm3747609344/ ?

I hope a staffer will delete this photo and contact the contributor that added this picture to the database.

Looks like it was uploaded by a studio partner

Unless I've misplaced my sense of humor, I'm inclined to disagree.

I'm 99.9999% sure it's studio partner upload.  It's so hard to delete studio uploads. Original dimensions of the file is 5043x3600, yes still not a great quality and I agree it's probably better to not keep it (nah, considering there are only 2 bts images, it's fine) but being an old series and being a behind the scenes picture combined with being an official upload is why they wanted to keep it I imagine.

Whether or not it was uploaded by a studio partner, the quality is poor. So a response from IMDb is still required. Apart from that, it would be polite to answer if someone asks you something, but IMDb being a business, politeness is nowhere to be found I'm afraid.

Also, can someone tell me who and why the tag Acknowledged was added?

I don't believe anybody knowledgeable will explain why any thread is ever assigned the status "acknowledged" or none at all in rare cases, but it may suffice to say that the signal does not quite constitute good news, since threads can be stuck with such a status for multiple months, possibly years.

Hi Marco -

 

Apologies for the delay as this thread slipped through, looking at the image you reported, I can see that it was not removed because this particular image, despite the quality, was uploaded by our editors as a presskit image.

 

While we don't actively indiciate this reasoning in our Declined status in your Contribution History, the image cannot be removed.

Well, thanks for the explanation, but a mystery remains as to why such a low quality image was chosen for the stated purpose. Maybe the presskit system is due for an upgrade?
