Warum wurden diese POI abgelehnt?

Hallo Wayfarer-Gemeinde :-)

nachdem ich über Ingress und Pokémon jetzt die Möglichkeit neuer Stops einzureichen bekommen habe, wollte ich die freie Fläche unserer kleinen Stadt um weitere POI ergänzen.


Auch habe ich mich in die Wayfarer-Spielregeln eingelesen und erfolgreich Stops bewertet. Über 2000 und mit hervorragend. Ganz so falsch kann ich damit also nicht liegen.


Nun zu meiner eigentlichen Frage, was meint ihr zu meinen beiden abgelehnter POI?

Danke für ein ehrliches Feedback.

    Hi @EvoliV2-PGO

    The first nomination looks a lot like standard road signs. I would also reject these, as I don't think they classify as 'trail markers'. Real trail markers go along a specific walking or hiking (bicycling, etc) route, but those signs in the photo just point the way to a city or area. They are too numerous to be of interest.

    The second nomination (the restaurant) has some merit. Even though nice little café's and bistros are eligible as 'hyper local' tourist attractions and meeting places, they're often rejected because not every restaurant qualifies (chain businesses like McDonalds for example) and not every place conveys the same "cosy feel" towards reviewers. A concrete building with a sign saying 'bar' doesn't radiate as much ambiance as a 100 year old Irish pub. I would advise resubmitting that restaurant, and lookup interesting stuff about it (how old it is, any specialties, how popular it is with locals, interesting stories maybe) and convince the reviewers.

    I’m sorry your restaurant nomination was rejected again. Wayfarers generally recommend that you do not Upgrade local restaurants, as far-removed voters tend to be very hard-hearted about them.

    I hope that with the planned new changes to Wayfarer we will gain more control over them and be able to save them for their best application.

    Hi Jeroenix,

    Thank you for your detailed reply.

    It is not that easy to show other wayfarers how important some information / things / places are for the people in their home country.

    We maintain close contact with our twin cities, so that it is an interesting sign for us which direction one of these cities is and how far they are from our small town. Good to know that others tend to perceive these as normal signposts.


    I had now submitted the restaurant a second time and since an upgrade came at the same time, it was immediately in the vote and was rejected again.

    This time I had emphasized the importance and popularity of the restaurant on site, the photos are good, it can be found on Google Maps ... Nothing again.

    And there are restaurants with regional interest in the admission criteria as meetings with friends on Wayfarer.


    Very frustrating when you try. Waiting for good weather to be able to take nice photos. Add a few sentences so that others can understand the POI and look for things on site that meet the criteria.


    Diligently evaluated myself, so that there is an upgrade, without the things from the beginning of the year are still in the queue.



    Hi Jeroenix,

    danke für deine ausführliche Antwort.


    Es ist gar nicht so leicht anderen Wayfarern zu zeigen, wie wichtig manche Informationen/Dinge/Orte für die Menschen in ihrer Heimat sind.


    Wir pflegen engen Kontakt mit unseren Partnerstädten, so dass es für uns ein interessantes Schild ist, in welcher Himmelsrichtung eine dieser Städte ist und wie weit sie von unserer kleinen Stadt entfernt sind.


    Gut zu wissen, das diese für andere eher als normale Wegweiser wahrgenommen werden.


    Das Restaurant hatte ich jetzt ein zweites Mal eingereicht uns da zeitgleich ein Upgrade kam, war es sofort in der Abstimmung und wurde wieder abgelehnt.


    Dabei hatte ich diesmal die Wichtigkeit und Beliebtheit des Restaurants vor Ort hervorgehoben, die Fotos sind gut, es ist bei Google Maps zu finden ...


    Wieder nix. Und dabei stehen Restaurants, mit regionalem Interesse in den Zulassungskriterien als Treffen mit Freunden auf Wayfarer.


    Sehr frustrierend, wenn man sich Mühe gibt. Auf gutes Wetter wartet, um schöne Fotos machen zu können. Einige Sätze dazuschreibt, damit andere den POI verstehen können und Dinge vor Ort sucht, welche den Kriterien entsprechen. Fleißig selber bewertet, damit es ein Upgrade gibt, den ohne sind die Sachen von Anfang des Jahres noch in der Warteschlange.

    Hi, thanks for answering.


    I did not wanted to Upgrade the restaurant. It just happened, because i did not expect a new Upgrade so soon and so the Upgrade take one of the free slots of the nominations in Queue.



    What for new changes to wayfarer are planned in the Future?
