Ridiculous Rejection Reasons
I mean... I don't know what to type here. I was at most expecting a duplicate-rejection because some of the figures on the palace itself are already wayspots, but this?
The people are nowhere near recognizeable and are certainly not the "subject matter" of the nomination (as lined out by the rejection reason). Since this is a frequently visited tourist destination it's pretty much impossible to get a proper picture with the sun out and not have people on it. This is the least amount of people I could get - which should be alright according to the criteria as far as I know. Here's the full size image as seen in the nomination:
The location might not be centered on the palace due to cell optimization but it is very much on the object:
I don't know if this is relevant enough but could anyone from NIA check the reviewers for other odd reviewing behaviors?
Could this be the beginning of a new wave of rejection bots in southern Germany?
What do you mean, I can clearly recognise a face here /s
Honestly though, how in the world was this not accepted? The rejection reasons are the icing on the cake. Just plain stupid. Someone actually tries to get a perfect picture with a drone (which requires effort) and some people decide to **** him over. Well done reviewers!
@NianticGiffard not sure how much you can do here, but I think the reviewers didn't know what they were doing...or they actually meant it, that would be even worse. This shouldn't require a resubmission / appeal...
Oh, I misread. The rejection reason is person, not face. Still blatantly wrong. There are some people running around, but they are not the focus of the picture. Good luck trying to find the perfect time when no one's running around.
Imagine rejecting with "Inaccurate Location" for a darn castle
Was it ever confirmed the rejection bots were actually stopped? Or were the ads for them just taken down? Maybe they're up again somewhere else.
@JillJilyJabadoo-PGO Well we noticed a massive decline in weird rejection reasons a while ago. I was on a 29-accepted-streak before this nomination (not counting one trail marker which is hard to get through around here). There was no announcement from NIA that the problem has been dealt with though
You lost me at “cell optimization.”
I get it’s a palace and spans many cells, but the pin should be at the natural point of discovery, which would be at, or at least near, the main entrance.
Also, how did you get that picture? ‘Cause I’m looking at this Google image of the area and I don’t see a high point from which to photograph down.
I think it's somewhere around there, which is good acceptable imo. Location inaccurate is such a troll rejection reason. And to answer your question, he even used a drone to get that picture...that's some serious dedication. Sadly it wasn't rewarded
@X0bai-PGO Yes, @dustinyeeaah-PGO is right: I used a drone to get the shot, to prevent a 3rd party picture rejection I showed it in the supporting image. The pin was to the side of the main entrance and easily accessible. As I said, I was cell "optimizing" not "abusing" ...
