Its a board which says which days the two different markets are on, its not any different to the opening and closing times shops display in their windows.
It just doesn't meet any criteria and has been correctly rejected
City welcome signs generally do not meet acceptance criteria unless the sign itself qualifies as a unique piece of art, is of historic value, or is otherwise culturally significant. This welcome sign does not appear to meet criteria.
No, no, no. This is not a general welcome sign whe have in the whole country. This is a sign with information about events, markets and other local activities.
No, the board shows upcoming events, markets and other activities.
In my experience, it is common for welcome signs to include this type of information. It still doesn't mean they meet any of the acceptance criteria.
But it promotes exploration, at least that's how I think about it.
as above posters have stated I also don’t see how this meets any criteria. It is seasonal display to me.
The nomination is not seasonal and there is not explicit activity there. These "reasons" are simply insulting. The acceptance criteria could be discussed, but it doesn't seem a mass-produced object, it gives you a welcome to the village, as well as some interesting information, so why not?
If you try again, the picture could be somewhat improved, and the description enlarged.
That's what I thought!
It is a 1* candidate and should not be resubmited.
As a welcome sign it is not interesting, artistic or have any particular inspiring qualities.
As an information sign it contains opening times for a market.
It just doesn't meet any criteria at all.
Your time would be better spent submitting something worthwhile instead of re atrempting this 1* candidate
Agreed on these points
The issue is tough its not actualy an information sign. while yes it gives info on events there it doesnt tell you anything about the events except time. you have to ask your self when submiting things is not only does th is fit any guidelines but is it unique or a generic sign that could be about anywhere.
It's a town name sign (not acceptable) and 2 adverts for markets (not acceptable). Sticking those things together does not make it any better.
I'm not agreeing/disagreeing on this nomination. But, as some new to wayfarer I would like some clarification on whether I should accept/decline other nominations?
Rostwold-ING said "It's a town name sign (not acceptable)" - but Entrance/Welcome signs are a suggestion in the criteria material as being suitable POIs for areas (like parks, forests, etc.) I would like help to know why a town welcome sign is not acceptable, but a park sign. (In the absence of some POI more interesting) Don't both of these encourage exploration?
Mainly because the welcome sign for a park or forest is serving as a placeholder for the forest or park POI itself. Technically, you don't NEED a physical object to locate a POI for an area, but people have a hard time understanding that and go off old criteria that says you need an object. So the easier/best practice way to get an approval is to use the sign as the POI marker. Especially for something like a forest, it's pretty unreasonable to nominate a POI for the entire space and just plunk it in the middle.
That said, a lot of town welcome signs are pretty artistic, so they might be approved on that merit. Information boards are also acceptable POIs, so this one is kind of in a gray area, depending on how you want to interpret it (as you can see). It's not really your classic information board, though.
