Should we rate watermarked submissions of existing POIs 1* (3rd party image/like named in the November AMA) or duplicate?
The submission I have to review:
rate it 1* - if you mark as duplicate, the watermarked photo will be added to the existing POI
thats exactly why I asked. Watermarked pictures should not get in the game. I am still unsure, maybe we need a specific guideline for this.
Its the same as taking a picture off of a website and trying to submit. No extra guidance needed. If its watermarked you reject it based on third party photo
Ok, so rejection>duplicate?
Most people will probably rate it as a duplicate but 1* is definitely the better option. No benefit in adding low quality photos to the POI. Alternatively the watermarked photo can be removed afterwards via the new image review feature.
Mobile phone experience about these.
1* reasons are options in the first box. I doubt people even scroll down to check on possible duplicates. Why would they? At least I don't.
Photo guidelines kind of address this, since it's "watermarked." I would consider this to be rejection criteria rather than duplicate. If the photo itself does not meet criteria, then it should not be added to the game as a duplicate.
