Primary Image Problem?

Some TV shows like the 1961 "The Defenders" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054531/) and "Chillers" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098889/) have stills as primary images despite BoxArt being clearly available for both and yet I can't seem to change this. There is no "suggest" button on either of them. This is a problem I've not experienced on either films or episodes where I can successfully change primary images.

Hi Mateja -

The reason why you are not seeing the "Suggest as primary image" box in the image "Edit Tags" report form is because the image is not listed as a Poster.  You can only suggest a primary image for images that are posters, the image you mentioned with the BoxArt is listed as a product image.

Therefore, if you want to replace the existing primary with a poster, you are welcome to upload the applicable poster image for that title.

I don't understand. Why would it be necessary to upload a poster when there is already a poster listed? Shouldn't a staffer be able to list an image as a Poster? Or better yet, shouldn't users be able to change the listing of an image?
For years (I think well over a decade) there's a problem with duplicate posters on titles, so I'm not sure this is the best way to go.

Thanks, Michelle, but that's a stupid rule. I doubt I'll be able to find posters for a 1961 TV series so my only choice is to mislabel a DVD cover as a poster.
