Primary Poster Suggestions Wrongly Rejected

I feel like some recent primary poster suggestions I made have been unreasonably rejected -- they are all clearly more suitable choices.

1. The Godfather: rm3868604416 should be changed to rm3213449472 as it is a much better quality image with none of the marks on the current primary.

2. Star Wars: rm104145408 should be changed to rm204808704 as it is a high quality image whereas the current primary is marked and faded.

3. The Empire Strikes Back: rm4122481920 should be changed to rm1085430016 as the clarity and contrast is far better.

4. Stalker: rm3888498944 should be changed to rm2506425344 as the current primary is very poor resolution and faded.

5. Once Upon a Time in the West: rm3690409984 should be changed to rm2511821056 as it is the original and iconic poster with great artwork.

6. The Bounty (1984): rm1423254528 should be changed to rm1264133120 as the current primary is worse resolution and has been heavily edited at the bottom.

I would really appreciate if these could be reconsidered. They all meet contribution guidelines and seem like obvious improvements, especially The Godfather and Stalker. I just want to see the best posters available being used as the primary images. Thanks :)

Hi Aaron -

I was able to take a look at these primary poster requests and can confirm that they were rejected.  Please keep in mind that when high profile titles are involved, we want to display the most iconic and recognizable primary poster for a title.  If you have a better quality image of the same poster we will consider making the change, however, we won't make the change of replacing an iconic poster image with another poster image.

I hope this helps clarify our primary poster preferences!

Thanks for replying -

The suggestions for The Godfather, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and the Bounty are literally the same poster but better quality images. I don't understand why the best quality image is not being used?

The same happened with another recent suggestion for Shaun of the Dead: rm4187183360 is a better quality image of the same poster. The current primary rm3487468800 has also been cropped significantly.

Hi Aaron -

Concerning the titles you referenced, if the image you requested was for the same poster with a better resolution, it may have been rejected if our staff were unable to determine a significant difference. 

If the resolution is significant, I encourage you to re-submit your requests (including a detailed explanation for the change) and our staff will take another look.
