    What are the penalties for posting a low quality or heavily pixelated image on a hub?

    I have this hub that I want to make. It's of a really old PC/DOS game from the late 80s.

    The problem is that the graphics are of really low Quality and color. What will exactly happen if the Hub Editor "flags" it for being "too pixelated" or of low quality and I push "Publish" anyway?    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Don't waste time with low quality photos as you will get messages and it could get unpublished . I would only want good photos on my hub anyway.

      Oh, really? Unpublished? That would be bad. I'll definitely have to keep this in mind then. Thanks for the  response.

    It's not so much a penalty, but more of a warning to revise your hub. After your hub has been flagged, the hub pages will most likely temporary unpublish your hub with a message up top telling you what corrections to make. It's no big deal, and it has at one time or another happened to just about everyone here.

      Hmm, Alright then, I guess, I'll either need to find other forms of media to feature alongside my text or find a way to take cleaner/sharper screenshots.  Thanks for the response.

    On one hand low quality images will affect the performance of your hub as people expect to see something top quality and hubpages tries to enforce that where they can.

    On the other hand if you are taking screen shots / pictures of classic games which probably only had really low quality that is an entirely different issue for readers. If the quality is as good as it can be this is not an issue for readers. Just make sure your image is crystal clear and sharp. It can be a great image, even though its old and dated.

    Take a look at this screen shot of an Old Zelda Game. Its pixelated and old but the image quality is great.

    If the image is clear but representing something with poor quality you should be able to get away with it.
