Community moderation denying legitimate changes?

I submitted quite a few edits to games on CAG, most in the form of tags or cover art, and now looking over them it seems that a lot have been inexplicably denied without any reason. A couple examples which are undeniable errors as the games in question are in that genre:



LittleBigPlanet - Platformer

Metal Gear Solid 2&3 - Action

Mass Effect 3 - RPG


I'm sure there are more but I haven't bothered to go through them all. I would just greatly appreciate if someone could explain the moderation process a bit better to me, as I feel these and others are being denied as users quickly skim through the pages (a few box art uploads for UK versions of games were also denied, and my guess is users didn't see it was meant for the UK version). I want to help contribute to CAGs game database, but if my edits are just going to be denied without any rhyme or reason I see no point in continuing to do so. I understand it's at the communities discretion which edits are approved, but there is no reason these and many others should not have been immediately excepted, so please nobody take this as me complaining.


I just don't get it.

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?
