If you want an easy way to cut down on people cheating, make it so quantums only work if you perform XYZ action(s) per day, all of which require a COMM message to show on the map. Simple, lets the community see who is "actively" generating gear.
It is locally significant to Pittsburgh. If there was a similar one in Florida, it would also be valid as it is locally significant to Florida.
Just my opinion, but even those pairs of courts are separated by just a small **** of grass, I wouldn't consider submitting them a separate portals. Those are the tennis courts for that park. Without there being some naming difference, I would consider them duplicates. The reasons for being rejected that you got suck and are incorrect, but I wouldn't be wasting much energy on getting that wall or the second set of courts accepted as a new wayspot.
This one I saw. It has a mural of the soccer club which gives this one credit. A blank wall isn't art.
Man, this hangover is killer today. I was trying to be funny with the fence comment. But!!!! Really a fence was approved? You are saying visually unique? This has historic and cultural significance? What? This was approved when? Had to slip through a long time ago. I don't see any criteria that would be meet to accept.
@NianticCasey please explain how this meets criteria? It is graffiti on a fence?
How old is this wayspot? I can't believe a fence was approved!
I'm not in disagreement on the tennis courts aren't eligible. A clarification would eliminate that issue. But a blank wall is a blank wall. A fence is a fence. If they had something artistic on them, maybe... if they had a sign it would be eligible under the signs of existing wayspots. But a blank wall? Next you'll be saying the sky is blue and we need a sky wayspot.
Now does Niantic deem multiple portals are allowed for this? Is it 2 portals? Is it 4 portals? Or is it just 1 portal? What's niantic's opinion on how many is too many? I guess is what you are looking for clarification on being frustrated with rejections?
This is getting slightly off-topic with a focus on what was rejected.I believe the real question is why can't appeals be an option. I think as previously stated in this thread, the sheer volume of rejections that would be appealed would be overwhelming. If there were ever appeals offered for reviewing expect to have to review significantly more than 100 to get it.
You can appeal by trying again.
As Theisman said, its just a wall. The tennis field might get approved, but just this wall? Its like trying to submiting both the goals of a soccer field... That wall is just part of the whole set.
What's that popular saying? That people seem to love throwing around? It's not visually unique or historic?
It's a block wall, and the tennis courts are clearly eligible and easier to get approved, submit them?
Or that other popular one, it's too close to others and wasn't on the poi to be approved?
Probably is going to be one of those situations.
