Nomination Rejected for Not Existing and Being Abusive?

I nominated some interesting sidewalk art in the office plaza where I work. It got flagged for not existing? It is visible from the street. There are several of this art around the office plaza but I pinned the one closest to the road so people don’t feel like that have to trespass, and where the stop is accessible to people with disabilities (like me). I also don’t know what is abusive about the submission?
Ignore it. Foucus on the two main ones - "Does not meet criteria" and the "Insufficient Evidence of location". I would say this is eligible, but perhaps it needs a Photosphere or a really good supporting photo so reviewers have no doubt where this is located.
The picture looks fake, its pixelated around the edges of the pattern. Now thats not to say it is fake, it could just be the way it was uploaded, or the quality your camera was set to, but it doesn't look like a proper image but more of a screen print / cut and paste job. That could cause people to select abuse.
I checked SV around the plaza and couldn't find the pattern at all so its easy to see why others would reject it as mismatched location.
And personally I would have just 1* rejected it for not meeting criteria as it just looks like a common decoration. Plus your comments about there being several of them around the plaza makes me think meh mass produced generic kerb pattern.
Sorry but I don't see anything worthwhile in this submission
This all is helpful info, thanks y’all. I’m new to the nominating thing so this helps.
Photosphere is like a pano, right? I have an iPhone so it doesn’t do the full-on round view like Androids (as far as I’m aware).
I nominated a community clubhouse and It got rejected for 1) fake 2) prp 3) not eligible. i think that reviewers just arent willing to take the time to 1) look at the provided maps, 2) know what PRP really means, and 3) review the criteria. if they know and understand these three things, and are still rejecting. then it is because they have a personal score to settle, or they just dont care and want to reject everything for whatever reasons they want
You can get the Google Street View app on iPhones (it's a separate app from Google Maps). This is how you create photospheres. The app will have you stand in one place, and take multiple photos in one session that will get stitched together to form a sphere (just a note: you do need to take photos of the floor and sky whilst doing this, you can't just get away with doing a single circle of photos level with where you are). Assuming you did it right, you can then publish it, and it'll appear on Google Maps if it is approved. Then reviewers will be able to see it when they review your nomination.
