Title Description criteria clarity

I had this nomination rejected. Again due to Title and Description not relevant

Any help as to why?

While I have kept some stuff from the plaque I have added a host of other information (garnered from supporting information.. I mention the address as this spot had a cinema directly opposite it in the old days. And the plaque is not in the position where the cinema was..... If it was - then the cinema was in the middle of the road (which is now a pavement)

So any insight as to why this did not meet the criteria

Thanks

    I wouldn’t put in the description everything you can read on the plaque as well. Just describe briefly what it is and what is on it.

    Did you get only one rejection reason in your mail? If you got more, post them there too.


    I also think that your description might be too long, and you add too much information from plaque in your text. Making it a bit shorter would be a good idea. It should start a bit different too, maybe like that:

    Description:

    "Plaque that was made to celeberate the history of Coronet Theatre, that was opened in May 1921 in this area. The theatre was active for many years until it closed in July 1968 and was later demolished. Plaque is part of series created for the Federation Centenary in 2001."


    Also add some information from description in your support text, and mention more about plaque, not it surrounding, like that :

    Support text:

    "Historical plaque set in public pavement permamently, it's easy accesible to pedestrians. Some of the theatre history can be found here http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/41038 (maybe add some more info here)"

    And don't mention bus stops or cafe around in support text, it's not relevant to your submission and only take more time for reviewers to read. With so much text in description people might not even read support text to the end, put the most important information at the start of the text. Make both text a bit shorter and more clear about what you're nominating, it should help :)


    To be sure - is it visible on map view/streetview? It looks like it might be inside some place, so it's best to be sure it's visible too, to not get "mismatched location" rejection just after you will fix issue with "description irrelevant" rejection. If it's not easy to see on sv, making photosphere might be a good idea. Or made support photo in a way that it will still show your subbmission and some more area near it. If it's easy to spot on sv, then nevermind this part of text.

    Good luck, I hope with some improvement it will be accepted next time :)

    Thank you.

    Will clean up description and supplemental.

    It is clearly seen on street view. It is outside the Subway near the road/pavement edge.

    I am getting better at this. I am ;-)
