One of the reasons that we got a "personal gallery" for images back in 2007 was the fact that a lot of game galleries got cluttered by series of images for session reports.

This is the announcement post for the personal galleries :
http://boardgamegeek.com/article/1481548#1481548

As you will see, images for session reports is one of the possible uses mentioned in Aldie's post.

I've just enabled the new User Image Galleries!

This new feature allows you...
...
For example, you could upload a series of images to be used in a session report, or an image that you want to use in a puzzle, etc...

Usage is possible, permissive, not required.

(English is a mess when it comes to distinguishing capability, permission, and requirement; however, Aldie is clearly stating possibilities and permissions and not making requirements.)

The clear case for using your personal gallery is when an image will not pass GeekMod.

The case for not using your personal gallery is if you want your gallery to be a photographic art gallery, holding only your most beautiful images. I hope the redesign will allow me to hide the utilitarian junk in my gallery and allow this.

Or he's trying to avoid being a hardass.

You know that people complain loudly and bitterly any time Aldie or one of the admins imposes a new requirement on users.

I was explaining what the English meant. Reading Aldie's mind...I don't have a catsuit.

Use an innocuous word the mods don't like... that's a banning

I have to agree with the OP. He hit it out of the park with his 3 reasons, all of which are great and valid.

But while I am here, I also like to make silly internet gags based off others posts so:

Thanks so much. Next question: In my modding I'm roughly 80% accurate so far.


Where can you see how accurate you've been? Or can you judge based on how much GG you've gotten?

Pretty sure you only get if you mod the images, so if you are concentrating on videos and articles you would not get any either.

You get GG regardless of what category you mod in, provided your verdict is same as the outcome (majority decision).

As others have noted you don't get a note of gaining GG this way but it is added to your gg balance.

You get 0.01 gg for each thing you approve and which is approved as an outcome.

You get 0.05 gg for each thing you reject of and which is rejected as an outcome.

I play games not to win, it's the gathering that's important - Thanks for the tip Cate108!

One question:

If a user uses different language other than English to write in the caption, should you vote to approve?

I don't see it described in the General Rules, and also I've seen captions like this approved previously in galleries.


EDITED
