Sorry. I set this as an Idea instead of a problem.

It has gotten worse. The photos have grown by 1300 since two months ago.
There are hundreds of sequential pic scenes and some that are not title related. There are some where only a body part appears. (No Face)



Very sorry about posting it incorrectly.
I made it worse by mis-posting it.
Thanks.

Hi there,

Thank you for your message.

You can find instructions on how to remove an image from IMDb here:

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/images-videos/how-do-i-report-a-photo...

Photo content guidelines can be reviewed here:

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/images-videos/images-guidelines/G27LP...

Photo report requests usually take up to 5 business days to be processed. If the photo has not been deleted after that time, it means that our editors have determined that it does not violate our guidelines.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

I reported someone adding around a 100 false attributes (likely on the same day as they just appeared suddenly) about 3 weeks ago and Jaime gave me the same response. Here https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/false-credit-attributes
It's like phoning the police after seeing a crime being committed and being told by the dispatcher to grab a gun or bat and go tackle it yourself instead.

If you look at Jaime's replies overall they lack a certain caring for IMDb as a whole. I hate to say that but it's evident if you look. And you Jon pretty much saying the same thing is disheartening.
I will probably resubmit this in a week or so.

Marco. I reported this same issue on "Angel"
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/tv-show-angel-media-gallery-spamming
It was  handled by staff because it was massive, just like this is.
This was only in the Hundreds and staff handled it.
This is Thousands of spam images!!!!

Bad contributors treating the site like it's Facebook is always a bane for those of us who care about the state of the site and user experience. Just got to hope the staff have our backs with things like this that are too big and time consuming for us to handle. I recognize they are up against it, overworked and short staffed as well probably but long as it gets done eventually that's the main thing.
Best of luck with a resubmit, if I've learned one thing, catching the right staff member with an issue can make a big difference, as I'm sure you already know.

Now that's a true fan, lmao. I also thought once of posting tons of Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino photos saved in my computer, but after submitting like 15-25 pics. I got tired af :(
I'm still their huge fan tho

It's not like I'm lazy and won't report images. Just came across these two gems approved by IMDb of Margot Robbie.
They removed them.
But how does this stuff get by the editor scrutiny process and be listed in the first place?
