I made these primary poster suggestions but they have all been rejected. I cannot understand this since they meet the contribution guidelines and are all significantly better quality images of the same poster. Could the following please be made the primary image?

American Psycho (rm3296681472)
Taxi Driver (rm3951714048)
Saving Private Ryan (rm3106757632)
Apocalypse Now (rm1143036928)
TLOTR: Return of the King (rm707343360)
Alien (rm1555193088)
Jagged Edge (rm721837568)
Raiders of the Lost Ark (rm983456768)
Scarface (m377314304)
Event Horizon (rm3414973952)

Also the current primary for The Godfather Part II incorrectly displays the title as The Godfather II (this is because the image is rm2289894144 but with the foreign characters removed). The primary should be rm1192581376 as it shows the actual title.

Hi Aaron -

I was able to see that your primary poster requests were not accepted because we already have the most well-known posters for these titles set as the primary.  I also noticed that the images you referenced were duplicate images of the posters that were already assigned as primaries, this is also why they were rejected.

They are all significantly better quality images though and the contribution guidelines state that the best quality image should be used if possible. The primary images for American Psycho and Event Horizon are particularly poor quality. And what about my specific point regarding The Godfather Part II?

In addition, the primary image for Citizen Kane is very poor quality; rm684416000 is clearly far better yet this was also rejected?

Hi Aaron -

Our editors reviewed the images suggested and while some of them do have better quality, the coloration differs.  Please keep in mind that as mentioned in our Image guide here, all suggested changes are subject to the discretion of IMDb data editors, therefore the existing posters listed as the primary for the titles you mentioned will need to remain as-is.
