In contribution 181227-195332-656902, I tried to delete this picture: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412142/mediaviewer/rm2356376576 because it is a dupe of this picture: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412142/mediaviewer/rm91517952. My contribution was declined, even though I explained "Duplicate “This is a dupe of this poster: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412142/mediaviewer/rm91517952"
The reason that was given for declining the submission was "Does not meet contribution guidelines.Your contribution has been declined.Please review the image eligibility criteria, if you believe your image still warrants inclusion please resubmit." 
The reason talks about inclusion while I was actually trying to remove a picture.

Can a staffer look into this please?

It cannot be deleted because it has language and country data associated with it. I have deleted the duplicate without language and country data. I'll work with the team to get the guidelines updated.

Thank you.

Is this always the case? What if both dupes have the same language and country data attached to them? Is it then still impossible to delete a duplicated picture?

Thanks a bunch. And thanks for the swift reply.
