Waypoint reject for false reason

Hi there

I tried to put a new pokestop in my village :

This is a small construction, right next to a path where locals walk regularly.

My proposal was rejected for the reason:

The proposal appears to be a natural element (waterfall, mountain, lake, etc.) which is not related to a man-made object, The proposal does not meet the validation criteria, The proposal is false and does not exist not at the submitted location.

But :

1) The proposition is not a natural element

2) It is a very well-known construction in the village (even if it is just a shed)

3) The proposal is real, exists, and is visible on google street view

I feel like people just turn down the proposals without even really studying it.

I'm tired of Wayfarer, it's a tool that could be great but it's polluted by people who don't play the game ...

    And exactly why do you think a shed qualfies?

    I understand that the rejection reasons seem odd and I have complained about them myself. But I think getting rejected for x reason sends x reply no matter what comments reviewers said when they chose the reason. So you have to look deeper.

    The main issue is that people did not think this should be a Wayspot. If you think it should, you need to submit again. Be sure to say why it meets at least one of these eligibility criteria:

    1)A great place for exploration 2)A great place for exercise 3)A great place to be social with others

    I personally do not see how this is eligible from the photo. So that explains that rejection reason. I think you got the "natural" rejection because people were seeing a field and a tree with some stuff in it. And that last reason seems like people were choosing "Fake" nomination for something that should not have been submitted.

    It would seem your local reviwers disagree with you. As far as I can see, it meets the rejection criteria of "Does not seem to be a great place of exploration, place for exercise, or place to be social. The object is mass-produced, generic, or not visually unique or interesting."
