I'm taking a wild guess and assuming that it's most likely due to the images' dimensions.

Try compressing it to at least 160 x 120 (Width x Height).
The image that was in the download link was 1024 x 512.

I have uploaded a lot of map images and I have been successfully 99% of the time.

Link to a proper online image compression tool; http://compressimage.toolur.com/

You should also comply with the 'Upload Notes'; this is located on the right side of the page (map upload page).

Here's just a few points;




I assume that you did not see those note since the info above was new to you.

If you are uploading a map image over an existing one, it needs to be an improvement which yours does not appear to be. Map images are not unique to your server, they are generic per game / map name.

Please note, I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years.

What specific improvements are being taken into consideration?

I know that some maps have images which were already there.
Last week, I also have uploaded images and one was rejected.

I assume it was due to the same reason as you stated above.
So yeah, the question is; What specific improvements will increase the likelihood of a map image being approved? (Over a preexisting map image).

Better quality, more descriptive of map, etc.

Thanks for clarifying, I'll keep that in mind when I'll be uploading in the near future.
