Just thought it should be pointed out to some, that for the supporting picture, you should stand back a way and take a picture of the Wayspot from a distance, so that you show the Wayspot and it's surrounding area. A picture FROM the Wayspot just showing the surrounding area doesn't really support your submission by proving the Wayspot is actually at that location.
Agree. A supporting picture without the Wayspot does not help. Most of the supporting pictures in the nominations that I reviewed do follow the rule. But some newcomers may not know that. I think it would be nice to mention it when they nominate.
Yeah, the majority of the supporting pics follow the rule but I got quite a few today that didn't. It just needs to be one of the main rules I think, so people know. I feel it's important.
The PoGo submission blurb talks about waypoints needing "safe pedestrian access", which is why we see so many supporting photos of a pavement or sidewalk, the people submitting think they have to prove "access". Not a lot of help if we can't locate the POI.
I see a lot of nominations that seem to think that "people hang out there" and "safe pedestrian access" are the only criteria for a waypoint. A lot of descripciones talk about safe pedestrian access and nothing else when they clearly have rule violations like being on private property or located on private residences... or located on a school.
