mission authoring rejection email clarity
Could you change rejection emails to cite a single field? e.g. the Title
Currently rejection emails say there could be an issue in the art, title, description or waypoints, and then list various possible issues. Here's am example from Feb 23, 2021
Thanks for submitting 2-6 #MP Year of the **** Theme US - Eagle Park, CA. Unfortunately, we were not able to accept your Mission. Your Mission may have one or more of the following issues:
- A lack of a clear and informative description and/or title
- Mission Image, description, and/or title are unrelated to the Waypoints chosen
All 4 fields are mentioned with 'and/or' implying there could be more than 1 issue.
If there is 1 field wrong, there are 4 possibilities.
If there are 2 fields wrong, there are 6 possible combinations of 2 fields that could be wrong.
If there is 3 field wrong, there are 4 possibilities. Only 1 is right.
Or all 4 could be wrong.
For a total of 15 possible combinations of fields that could be wrong.
There are also many reasons for rejection, but they are less important, because whatever it is, we'll be changing a field, to avoid all known issues.
To resolve the rejection, the author changes 1 thing, taking a guess as which of the 4 things it could be.
If there are truely multiple fields that require changes, I would still prefer the email only pick one reason, and then when that is resolved, move onto the next field. Worst case, thats 4 rejections.
So far I've tried 11 times on this example. And the reason is unrelated to what the email says. Its not the description or title being unclear. Its not the image, description or title are unrelated to the way points. The real reason is the art contains the chinese symbol for ****, which falls into the single letter rule that isnt written.
This example being a mission project, we're also given art, and a template for what the title and description should be. So it would be nice if the art, which is not copyright, and created expressly for banners, were preapproved, so a large number of people submitting the same banner around the world, didnt all have to go thru the reject/resubmit process.
