A lot of geeks who moderate have been expressing their concern that they are not following the proper BGG conventions with their accept/decline decisions.

Well those problems are gone. Here anyone can train to become a top-notch moderator for images at BGG!! This test has been designed by some of the best moderators on BGG and corresponds 100% to BGG image norms.


INSTRUCTIONS: Start with the first question in the first entry and click on the alternative you would choose as a moderator working for the best of BGG: accept or reject. You will then be taken to another image depending on your choice.


When moderating please follow the following guidelines:

Please evaluate each picture and accept or reject it based on the criteria given. In particular, the following are not reasons for rejecting an otherwise good image:

- Image contains modified components.
- Image is only tangentially related to the game (an image of people playing the game, etc).
- The game already has enough images (unless this image submitted is very similar to one already in the gallery).

Use your own judgment; if a particularly good picture violates one of the guidelines, it is OK to approve it.

Please note that this test is not authorized by the official moderators guild and that all results should be seen as indicative only. the views expressed in these moderation conventions do not in any form correspond to the views of Scott Alden or anyone else.

You fool! You were soooo close, and now you go and mess it all up. Those weren't images of cats they were perfectly good and relevant pictures of modified game components...You really shouldn't listen to voices in your head...

You'll get just ONE more chance....

And you have to take a penalty...

Like it or not that was actually the back of the Dune box, unmodified, and is as valid/valuable as any other backbox shots.

OK. This is the last image. And as we know there's a trick to all last images in a test. Either it is a trick and there's something to this image or then they just want you to think it's a trick or they want you to think that they just want you to think it's a trick..is it the blue or the red cord... or the orange?

Very good! (Historical fact: The last picture was actually rejected as it was submitted during one day when BGG modding had been hijacked by dadaists who only accepted dadaist images. But BGG has moved on from that and hardly any modders fall into the dadaist category these days...)

Oops. Let's retrace your steps. There are elements in this image that cause geek blindness so you're forgiven for being inconsistent. Try focusing on the image qualities this time, photo-wise there's not much to choose one between the former and this. In fact there is only two objects that are in focus in this picture everything else is out of focus JUST like with the picture you rejected...

OK, so you cannot accept pictures of women playing games but rather of women standing in front of an electric power transmission hut holding boardgames in the middle of the Nevada desert. That's just weird...but there is room for exactly one weird moderator, and that could be you...
