Eight deleted pictures turned up again

Since this thread (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/duplicated-pictures-added-recently-to-biography-1987) has been marked solved and my five-day-old reply didn't receive a response, I'm creating this new thread.
As I've said, eight pictures that had been deleted recently, have been added again recently: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092322/mediaindex

Hi, Marco.
After first look at their tags, I see they just looping:
  1. The same general posters were added to separate episodes and tagged;
  2. Then posters tagged additionally as general for series;
  3. Then you reported;
  4. Then they not deleted but the general tags removed;
  5. Then someone (may be another person) added the general tags again;
  6. And so on looping this way from the above 3d point.

MAthePa, this could very well be exactly what happened. I thought they were deleted altogether, but in reality they were only removed from the series page and not the episodes pages. I still hope a staffer can shed some light on this, just to be sure.

Chances are, it's time and efforts for nothing. In view of another similar matter that was not solved, I feel some internal policy exists for bunch adding some kinds of images. May be users who did millions of contributions could explain ))

I think you're a bit too pessimistic. Via posts on GetSat, I've been able to get some (duplicated) pictures deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/-190220-231000-107202-declined-why and https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/-190212-002311-616302-declined-photo-with-a-watermark

Marco, you just don't understand the difference when comparing the above examples to the cases I mean. And I think the images you are trying to delete now is another case, not one you did 3 times before. No problem, I wish you success.

I appreciate the differences between both our cases and I also agree the situation regarding the images I'm trying to delete now is (slightly) different from the other cases I mentioned, but I just wanted to point out that when it comes to pictures that should, for whatever reason, be deleted, IMDb will -in most but unfortunately not all cases - delete them.

(Hallelujah!)

Isn't it likely the word "most" is obsolete here, in view of the fact that you've succeeded to delete 3 but still have no final for 8 images, and also in consideration that hundreds of them are still waiting (the link is provided above, if you did not check)? (it's a rhetorical question :)

in view of the fact that you've succeeded to delete 3

I gave links to three examples, but I've been able to delete hundreds and hundreds of pictures and remove thousands of wrongly attached episodes to posters they shouldn't be attached to. (Also, I've been able to attach a great number of people and titles to pictures as well as changing headshots and primary images)

but still have no final for 8 images,

You're absolutely right. Maybe IMDb will not fix this, but, on the other hand, maybe they will. As you say, nothing is final yet in this matter.
hundreds of them are still waiting

I think it's very annoying and not very polite that IMDb is keeping you waiting for two months now, but the fact that these pictures are still waiting means that it's still possible IMDb deals with this the way you want them to...

Hi Marco,

Thanks for your post. 

I can see the images are linked to both the episodes and parent series, therefore rather than simply removing the tag on the parent series - these duplicates should be removed from the individual episodes as they will automatically populate across to the parent gallery and become duplicates.

I've done this now, please allow up to 24 hours for this to reflect on all platforms. 

Have a great day! 

Joel
