And here i got distracted by “than”
Actually it does.
Visually unique and locally significant. They are literally saying they just don't want the same thing you did to parks with athletic fields and trail markers. 1 thus per local area is allowed for all pieces of art.
What's the size of a unit that is allowed to have its own Mona Lisa print that is considered to be unique? One print per block? One per acre? One per municipality? One per county?
Locally significant, would be in the review itself. The distance typically seen in reviews to check for duplicates.
Gotcha. So as long as there isn't another portal consisting of a Mona Lisa print visible in Wayfarer, a submission of a Mona Lisa print anywhere that's not PRP, a school, etc. should be acceptable?
This is the current guidance.
That is what is written as locally significant. But for all forms of art yes.
So if I want a portal in my place of business, for example, all I need to do is order a nice Mona Lisa print and hang it on my wall and I'm good to go? (Maybe make a photosphere to help a bit as well.)
That is current guidance to reject street signs and decorative bollards.
The remaining criteria is in eligible for statues, paintings and other forms of art allowed.
The update for october specifically talks that art should be reviewed on it's own merit even if the business doesn't meet criteria.
And January specifically says it doesn't matter if it is mounted or freestanding all forms of art are acceptable in malls and businesses.
They have 3d scanning coming out. They want the world scanned completely not impartially. To do the world scanning more submissions are required to finish the puzzle.
This is how I understand it:
Ineligible: Nominations that are mass produced art pieces or objects. Don’t submit these unless the nomination has some cultural significance. <<not my emphasis, Niantic emphasis>>
A mural or candidate not related to the business should be reviewed on its own merit. <<if it is a mass-produced art piece or object, it is ineligible>>
Mounted or free-standing murals, paintings, fountains, sculptures, etc. in a mall or the lobby of a business that also meet the criteria of being visually unique and locally significant. <<if it is a mass-produced art piece or object, it is ineligible>>
@NianticCasey could you please step in and either come to this person's defense or kindly set this person straight. The conversation in this post is both tiresome and unconstructive. If I am wrong, I'd like to know. If this person is wrong, I would like for them to know so we can move on.
Based on the guidance I can see and the original post, I would outright reject Jolibee as a mass-produced art piece and give a middling review Ronald because the permanent mounting to the bench makes it a photo spot. But hey, I could be completely off-base.
At this point I will be exercising my option to ignore the original poster and encourage others to tune out as well.
