Tool so that only users with "GOOD REPUTATION" can load images

It Would be good if there was a tool that could evaluate users or allow only older users or who did not have images uploaded without any denouncing could upload images

Examples of images uploaded in the galleries of the albums: Teenage Dream, Born This Way and Thank u Next

OBS:. 
These covers sometimes end up getting on top, as if they were the main image



Will there be any type tools that approve only reputable users can upload images from artists? Usually These trolls always end up coming back and uploading more and more erroneous images and vandalizing the gallery and images of artists ' albums and usually there are few moderators to evaluate this. Another point would be to increase the number of moderators on the site to try to stop the trolls more efficiently

They should do the same thing too with their comments. Some of the meaningless comments they wrote have up to 70 positive votes in less than a day. It looks like they are using alternative accounts and robotic scripts to abuse this feature.

It would be good if clicking the link to report an image as inappropriate actually led to someone reviewing it and deleting it if it's inappropriate, but that doesn't seem to happen.

Improving the reporting system for incorrect and "troll" album art would be a good thing, but it's also a difficult one to implement due to the way it's misused by users. The capitalisation fix requests post, for example, does highlight some important and particularly jarring miscapitalisations, but we equally get many requests to change "A" to "a", or similar minor casing fixes, on relatively insignificant tracks. This massively adds to the workload, creating backlogs in the thousands, and any enhanced reporting features would likely have the same problem.

My recommendation for the moment is that, in the worst situations, like the meme photos in your examples, you should use the "Report as inappropriate" option. If multiple people make this report it is flagged up more prominently on the system. I would avoid reporting minor issues (low resolution, parental advisory sticker, slight cropping issue, stickers on the cover, ring wear, etc) in this way because downvoting is a better solution for those.

Also, when a single shares the same name as an album, the single artwork being uploaded does not warrant flagging as inappropriate. The most reported artwork at the moment is lots of copies of a single cover (which have been allowed to stay) and lots of edited Marina and the Diamonds covers (which have been removed, users should not edit artwork with new names) which inevitably pushes other problem artwork down the list.

When we report fanmade covers, they will not be removed? Because on some albums, they upload these covers, still use fake accounts to make it the main, just troll.

Fan made covers are not allowed, so yes, they should be removed. Unfortunately, it isn't always easy to find these, or even spot them, because some of them are very similar to the official artwork and only super fans can tell the difference!

I've actually just published an FAQ with more detail on what should and should not be uploaded: What are the rules and guidelines for uploading release artwork to Last.fm?

Thanks! I could make a list of several fanmade covers and trolls, which have many deslikes and should possess many denunciations as well, but that for some reason have not yet been removed. Do you think I could request removal here in the forum?
