Stargate SG-1 ep 1.1 has 19 duplicates out of 36 pics. How could this happen? It's seem that imdb could possibly develop an automated way to find something like this. I wonder if one person submitted all of them or did multiple people. Interesting.

Multiple people. Problem is that the uploads are only checked for approval for correctness and quality of image. The data editors have no way to quickly check for a duplicate.

in this case, with almost 3k images which is ridiculous, they'd probably gone blind had they tried. other than a 20min little rascals title that has over 120 images, this is by far the most extreme I've seen.
I don't know what the answer is, but there's gotta be one.

I was doing some other reading and thought it might have been due to combining some episodes. For multiple people to have done this reminds me of a name/term we used to call some less than keeping up guys when I was in the service, but this is a family show so I'll just say well done boys and don't do it again.

The shame is that there are a ton more dups on the overall series exactly like these. There is an average of over 13 images per episode on the series. So all one needs to do is view the images and doesn't even need to watch the series.

Got 19 duplicates deleted (missed 3 more) but only moved series sg1 by 1 duplicate image.
Almost every product image is there 4 times.
I don't know who got their jollies posting literally dozens of duplicates, but I hope they really enjoyed it.
Ridiculous.
between this and the jeffersons, what a mess, and there are so many more.

just found a title with even a better image to episode ratio.  Animal Kingdom has 1000 images with 48 episodes (some that haven't aired) giving almost 21 images/episode. How funny.
