Yeah, I can understand where you are coming from, I think part of the problem stems from there being no way to thank a user, so the only time people hear off the mods is when something is denied.
I think in this case the mod was trying to help you get the best possible image (rightfully or wrongfully) rather than rejecting your image for not being good enough.
I think the wording of the email is also possibly wrong, image denied sounds so harsh.
If you really are interested in helping out then feel free to pm me with your IM details (gtalk or msn) and we can have a chat, there are lots of non technical things that need doing (tutorials, help files, project co-ordination, outreach/promotion, newsletters, moderation, template creation, documentation, etc) so if any of that interests you (or anyone else) I would love to hear off you.

I've only just read your posts, otherwise I would have chipped in sooner. I was the Mod who denied the two Terra Nova cleararts you're pictured here.
On the first example you have, I would like to hold my hands up and say I made a mistake, when I said, "There seems to be a bit behind the 2 guys on the right head that needs cutting out. I think you missed that."
I can now see that it's the backpack and it looks so obvious now, I can't believe I didn't recognize it first time round! However, I did say "seems to be" and "think you missed that" because I wasn't 100% sure at the time. And I did offer to give you any advice if you wanted it.
We all make mistakes and that was a rather silly (but innocent) mistake by me, so I apologize. However, I do spend quite a lot of time looking at every individual image in detail and testing them, because I firmly believe that contributors such as yourself, deserve that, and deserve constructive feedback.
Regarding the clearart that was denied because of the logo (one you'd used from Fanart.tv) - I'm not sure if that was me or not who denied it, but I wouldn't get too worried about that. It has happened to me also, on plenty of occasions. I once had a clearart accepted, only to have it denied again 3 days later because there was a spelling mistake in the logo! I'd just used the logo from fanart.tv and naturally assumed that because it had already been accepted, it must be fine to use it! Lesson learned for me, so unfortunately, it's not necessarily safe to just use the logo from the site, you need to check it. As Kode said, sometimes things slip through the net.
On the second Terra Nova image you've used here as an example, I think your own words are worth picking up on: "And to my mind theres absolutely nothing wrong with the image"
Ultimately, you can set as many rules or guidelines for mods as you like, but when it comes to the crunch, the modding process is still very subjective. We're not computers, but people making judgement calls and we don't always get it right. But I hope that I'm always constructive when I deny an image and try to give proper feedback and suggestions. When I look at an image, I'm always thinking in the back of my mind, "How could this be improved?" So I stand by my denial of that particular image.
As I said in both those denials, you are welcome to contact me on site any time you like, either by the chat window, or by making a post in the TV forums section. I'm perfectly happy to take a second-look at an image if you think I was wrong to deny it and happy to change my mind, if you can convince me I should. I'm quite approachable
I hope I've tried to explain my position reasonably. Best wishes, and I would like to thank you for your contributions and the time and effort you take, it is very much appreciated, even if it doesn't always feel that way.

I'll try to do a few of the others for you. My main PC is broken at the moment, so I'm running a pretty limited system, but hopefully should be sorted soon, so I can do some more.
