Bike routes meet criteria, no? Or are these signs too generic?
Thanks in advance!
Generic signs next to a road instant 1*, plus the top one is telling people how to vote so may be considered abusive.
You are not allowed to put "5* submission" in the support statement, especially for something that is instant 1* material
I'm not from your area, so they also looks like generic signs for me (if they're not, it's up to local reviewers to judge that).
But I agree with Theisman-ING, writing "5* submission" in support text might be considered abuse and get you a rejection.
I would also not use any symbols like "@", "#", "$" etc. to replace any words in title or description, as they might get you rejection for text.
I also wanted to mention that bus stops aren't eligible, only the main bus stations (and other main stations, like main train station) are considered eligible, every single bus stop is not. I just wrote it, because it looks like it was your reason to include bus stop sign in main photo of your first nomination too.
I hope you will get something acccepted in your area soon :)
Generic road signage - 1* - generic, mass produced, not interesting.
These would fall under the rejection criteria of "objects that are mass-produced, generic, or not visually unique or interesting".
As a casual bicyclist and daily cycle commuter, I'm a huge fan of bike routes. They help identify paths cyclists can use that typically have better established lanes and right of ways.
I would only consider that type of sign to be eligible if it had the trail/route name attached to it. I know Niantic has eased up elsewhere about how generic signs can be, but I find it unlikely this is what they had in mind. Those signs are every block in my area, I'd personally never nominate them.
I never said it was 5* in the description. I mentioned bike routes are the 5th item down on the list of acceptance criteria
Yes. All of our Trans Canada Trail markers get accepted even though they are all generic. But that's the name of the trail. Not all trail markers have the trail name, especially if it is a small route. It's a legitimate route with legitimate bike lanes just doesn't have a name.
No, biking trails are listed, not biking routes. Trails are meant to be separate from the roads or highways while a route is part of the road.
Fair enough. Thank you!
