Hello.

I just reinstalled kodi and re-scrapped everything today and just saw that a dozen of my tv shows now have an ugly poster like this one for Marco Polo (2014) :

Original : https://www.thetvdb.com/banners/posters/266091-5.jpg
Custom low quality by goldusch1970 : https://www.thetvdb.com/banners/posters ... b80858.jpg

Apparently for posters set as "french".

They have this ugly left bar with text saying "Serie TV", the pic has a completly wrong aspect ratio, pic is upscaled or highly compressed, cropping isn't even done properly... Jesus.

This guy added a fuckload of these posters, these ones are the ones I saw from my library :

Future Man : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/future-man
Justified : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/justified
Kaamelott : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/kaamelott
Klondike (2014) : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/klondike-2014
Lazy Company : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/lazy-company
Magic City : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/magic-city
Marco Polo (2014) : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/marco-polo-2014
Person of Interest : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/person-of-interest
Ray Donovan : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/ray-donovan
Les Revenants : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-returned
Z Nation : https://www.thetvdb.com/series/z-nation
... and many more ?

Please, take action against him for preventing him to do more damage to the site.

Thanks.

I know, I have been deleting his uploads (posters and season posters) for some time now. The new site is unfortunately lacking in mod tools. So right now now you have to report every series which he "blessed".

Hallelujah, I thought I was the only one to find these horrible posters.
A moderator can not send him a message directly to stop him?
On my plex home screen it's completely awful, I have to change all the post manually

If we see it, can we point it out here or on the series concerned?
Thx Imzadi for your job !

Unfortunately it's not only posters but season posters as well. They are even worse.
