Habit for pollinators

On one of the trails in my town there is a waypoint call habit for pollinators. I noticed the other day on a different trail that a similar sign existed on a different trail in my area. I submitted the habit for pollinators on the other trail but it was rejected. Have the guidelines changed to not allow this or were the reviewers wrong and I just need to resubmit.
e che a quanto pare le linee guida sono un po piu rigide sigh
The only concerns I can see reviewers having issues with are its permanence and whether it is mass produced. The former can be overcome with a better quality photo that makes it clear that it isn't a piece of laminated cardboard attached to a wooden furring ****. The latter may be more difficult if there are similar signs in the same area.
Even in decorative pole art, Casey says mass produced is allowed. Mass produced is allowed it is more of a concern that hundreds of things are next to each other that are mass produced and considering them as individual submissions where they are not eligible. Everything is visually distinct, but things that are similar can be approved. Duplicate can be approved if there is enough distance. Casey touch based on that in the Tennis court response.
I can't read the writing on that picture. Can you confirm it is informational?
I would consider those eligible, if there is educational information on the signs. As noted earlier, they do appear somewhat mass made and generic, which may hurt some votes, but shouldn't disqualify. You may also be having trouble proving location. Is there a nearby distinguishing feature you can frame in the background to support location?
Where I am, we have many signs along a trail about that size that simply say "[Location] watershed; ours to protect." I would consider those ineligible as there is no educational information provided.
Can you elaborate?
In my area we have pollinator highways which is a network of similar pollinator gardens. While the signs are not unique each location is at a garden that promotes pollinators such as Butterfly’s and Bees. Overall it’s similar to nature education signs as it explains the importance of these gardens and pollinators to the environment. These are 100% eligible, just make sure to include a good detailed description. Also it wouldn’t hurt to add a photosphere if possible.
In @NianticCasey-ING' s response about poles said mass produced items could be arranged into something artistic and that arrangement could be eligible. It did not say that mass produced items are eligible.
