Hello,
I'm wondering why this poster was deleted. It is crystal clear even when blown up.

The lettering is clear and the woman is supposed to look like that by design. It is not a poor quality picture..
Please allow it to remain.

I can find a thousand posters on the database that are of lesser quality. I am very confused by this.

I've made a bunch of posters for multiple foreign language series that has no art at all, usually taking high resolution screen shots, adding the channel call sign and trying to reduce the amount of empty space of a single color. Some are better than others, I understand that, but these shows have no art at all. I upload them one day and within 48 hours most are deleted.. I follow the bible guidelines: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=59152

A few I have reuploaded multiple times, some stick others disappear again. :-) I see a good overview of what's approved on the account dashboard: https://www.thetvdb.com/dashboard/artwork

This must be creating more work for the moderators/admins, but the policies for artwork, items with no art and some are applied might need to be better refined and made clear for all of us.. But I know art can be hard and is very subjective to all. :-)

Also see this thread, where some ideas to help this have been brought up: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=66416

We are all trying to improve the look and usage, so art is very important in my mind..

The Poster police are very strict around here that's for sure!

I didn't delete your original. But 99% of the posters I delete are because they contain text and have no language set on them. When an API user requests a textless image that's what they should receive.
