Wayfarer - Could historic graveyards/cemeteries be good candidates?

Hi all,

I was reading the guidelines for good nominations and i can't understand if historic graveyards/cemeteries could be good candidates to submit.

I live nearby of what was the area of the Gothic Line in WW2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_Line

Many villages and churches were damaged/destroyed by the war, some of the respective graveyards are still present and ,in some cases, the only building left of that place.

If it has 50+ years it's historic for Wayfarer and all of these small graveyards are way older.

Knowning these informations, do you think they could be good candidats to be submitted?

The images inserted below are graveyards. I can provide exact location and historic proofs if needed.

    No, because the most recent update literally says cemeteries aren't eligible, no exceptions.

    Also, stop asking Wayfarer questions here. Wayfarer has its own community now. If you don't know that, it's proof you've fallen behind on updates.

    From the January update on wayfarer


    Cemeteries or Graveyards

    • Acceptable: Headstones, statues or memorials dedicated to a historical figure, someone who is significant to the local community, or groups of individuals. For example, a WWII Veteran memorial.
    • Not acceptable: Signs at the entrance of cemeteries, cemetery directories, other headstones or memorials (regardless of how visually unique or artistic they are), or funeral homes.

  • I apologize for this unnecessary discussion, i wasn't aware of the other community. It isn't listed in the Wayfarer site

    I have read the latest update and i didn't see anything related to the graveyard as building.

    I'm going to try close this discussion or get it closed.

    I would do it the other way around. But Niantic doesn't seem to understand that we have fanatics in our community and stripping portals from inside the cemetery would solve a certain amount of problems (spoofbot s, trespassing, etc,) .
