There are loads of sequential shots.

There are too many pages for a submission by one person.



Do not know if staff can handle this.
The person responsible needs a sever tongue lashing or suspension of their account.

Also there is bleed over into the other name pages.

Even Dorian Gregory's page is an Alyssa love fest also!!!!

Staff please advise.
This would take one person months to fix.
And I personally would not tackle it for fear of ruining my submission declines to approval ratio.
I do not trust the editors and/or system.
When I have made mass deletions before the reject ratio was too high and therefor now what I determine a risk to tackle.

Thanks
Ed

WOW. I'd be worried if whoever is the poster is a stalker.  This takes the top for the most images I've seen on a title.

LOL. There is approximately 7600 minutes of show and almost 7k images.
What I'd rather know is just how long it took to post all those. Whoever it is likely is going to have to be in the top 250 contributor territory if you consider that every image will have at least 4 tags which would put them at over 20k contributions.

And if they were a charmed fan then there would be equal doses of Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty, and Rose McGowen too. But there are nowhere near the photos of them. No this is a Milano fan. No Doubt in my mind. She is front and center of attention. Just looking at the Gregory page proves that.

This must have come from a prolific contributor. Someone that IMDb trusts. I cannot imagine anyone else getting away with this.

Did you see the poster Image in the bottom left? It has 6 credited actors. But there are only 3 in the Image!!!!!!!!!!

The inclusion of these images is an embarrassment to the staffs integrity.
The individual that submitted this debacle needs to get the Pete Rose Treatment!

This situation very much reminds me of old "Charmed" fansite, which screencapped each preview and later episode in a similar fashon trying to get more pictures. 

Nostalgia aside, such an abundance of pictures is indeed disturbing, although I've encountered such picture-fests before and the main reason is usually just that: to try and fill the gallery. The problem is that some people don't have any limits whatsoever when it comes to that. At least here all of the pictures are from the correct episode, ublike some cases when gallery is filled with random Google Images spam on subject...

This was rejected because it is the back of Laurence Fishburnes head.
I had to beg and plead here on GS to get staff to accept it. They don't approve credit if the face is not seen. I got the approval.

But there are probably somewhere around a thousand name tags for people that have the back of their heads only like the shot below and your Dorian Shot above. Or are not even present like the poster image. And they were accepted without any flags raised!!!!

Yep. As a test I submitted to remove the tag from the above Gregory image and it's pending. Normally my tag changes go thru within 5  minutes. So I'm pretty certain that whoever the poster of all those images is has a great acceptance rate.
I don't remember the movie, but after reading that all the lines between two actors were done separately and that stand-ins were used to shoot from the back of what appeared to be the other actor I care more about only crediting when their face can be seen. I've read other trivia items that were similar. Had no idea so many stand-ins were used. To me it seems like it's extra work but I'm sure they know what they're doing.

Removing Gregory? Yes but it took almost a day which is very odd for my tag changes. Whether it was done by a bot or a person I don't have a clue.
