What do you do with the bus stops?
Do you accept them? Or only if it is a Bus Station?
I reject them since they normally dont fall under the "important transit station" criteria. On main bus stations, it might be eligible but normal bus stations are ineligible.
Sigo tu consejo, amigo!
No @LukeAllStars-PGO it is eligible as per new explore criteria you need to upgrade on it. @iN8rbe-PGO they are eligible you are good to go
A Bus Station is eligible - transit hub / bus route terminus / multiple bus routes starting or end in there.
A bus stop by the side of the road serving one or two bus routes is not eligible.
@sogNinjaman-ING seems like you haven't upgraded your knowledge or didn't want to support community and niantic for some reasons.
Bus stations are ineligible: mass produced, no historical/cultural meaning, nothing special.
A great place for exploration us something else for me. A bus stop would not be interesting in any way.
@LukeAllStars-PGO seems you got stucked to old criteria by elaborating redundant points of historical/cultural Bus stop is not an exploration point rather it's considered as a social point you need to understand what the social criteria is and by the way every place has a unique Bus stop with unique name of that place, seems you forgot the very basic review fundamentals leaving the criteria aside.
Bus stops don't meet the social criteria. Just because you can socialize with someone somewhere doesn't make that random spot a great place the socialize. That particular criteria is for locations where it is meant for people to gather in order to socialize. A bus stop, random bench, or random street corner don't fall into that category.
Honestly I dont understand why a Bus stop should be a POI. My City has hundreds of bus stations and none of them meet criteria.
Is this your own opinion or do you have any kind of source for this? Because it sounds like Nonsense.
@LukeAllStars-PGO https://wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/criteria this is my source and you should follow the same as niantic wants.
@TheFarix-PGO you think people don't talk or share their experiences regarding general things in Bus stop? And gathering is a sub point for socialising they have explained a place for friends or strangers who can watch the public life or entertained or even a place where you can share your local or culture relevant experiences. Random Street corner is not considered to be a place for gathering without any reason because that thing is considered temporary and random benches are considered generic Unless there is some story regarding the place or it is related to something important and other things which they explained.
No mentions of bus stops or benches there. And as I say, the "great place to socialize" criterion is specifically about places that are meant for people to gather in order to socialize. Not random spots where people can socialize.
Yes i agree they haven't written in the examples but it is upto our thinking and how our city and localities work. And I agree to you that they aren't random spots for socialising but those places aren't randomly spreaded without a designated area name and are considered of great relevance in our country more specifically.
You can't say "In my country things are different" and use that as the basis to ignore criteria or change how criteria are implemented.
Yes but if things are valid as per the world's common criteria in my country why wouldn't we implement.
The world's common criteria is that bus stops aren't eligible.
The only criteria we are supposed to use when reviewing Waypoints are the Niatic criteria. Nothing else is applicable.
Yes understand the current criteria and only follow it.
