Velma (velmalikevelvet) | 61 comments I have been noticing that many books have one or more 'other photos' attached to them that seem to be superfluous and in many cases completely unrelated.

For example:

In addition to the appropriate cover photo for
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/81... there is also this:
http://www.goodreads.com/photo/work/1...

And www.goodreads.com/book/show/215220.2001 has 5 other film stills associated with it.

To my thinking, these are not appropriate, as they are not specifically related to the edition or the book (to say nothing of how much bandwidth it takes for GR to host them).

I wanted to ask about the GR policy on this type of photo before deleting them, however. Can I delete them, or do I just need to flag them for review by a GR employee?

Agreed. There may be copyright issues as well.

I may delete them when I see them then?

Yes, please delete film stills if they have been uploaded as a book's "other photos".
