Oldest nomination still in Voting? (7 January 2018) - Ortsstein Gatow
Today I want to present the oldest (redacted) nomination I've ever seen. The infamous "Ortsstein Gatow" many reviewers came across (some even more than once) over the past months. As of today, the newest sighting was on 13.09.2021.
Thankfully, the Wayfarer saved the Link for the Nomination picture (https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/qKOvOLdsTFY4KgXUSK7rvi2iy-ZAWQe4n1svVFlkaS6DMQpuP4pFOkb9GMHcKaG3_PSbgm-85b-9yTgVCmg=s0). I saved the picture and ran a program to get the meta data. This is what I found:
Wow, this candidate is old! The german community thought it's a honeypot (created by Niantic), but I'm not so sure anymore. No matter if you accept this candidate (3 or more stars for every category) or use 2 stars or less for any catgory, your rating won't drop. Based on the satellite view, you could argue that there's no safe pedestrian access. Given the location and the fact it's a very small village, a good/bad rating for the category doesn't have a different effect on your Wayfarer rating (Good = 3 stars or more; bad = 2 stars or less).
As of today (16.09.2021) the candidate is still nowhere to see on the Intel map! This is the Portal link for the nearest Portal, if you want to see for yourself: https://intel.ingress.com/?pll=53.106179,14.326533
