Chess Table: Share your point of view
Background: In my country, Hong Kong, there are considerable chess tables (aka elephant game table, 象棋桌). They are concrete table and apparently permanent. They can be in parks, shared-area of apartment complex, or even along hiking trail. Most of them used to be rejected by “generic business” because a group of reviewers abuse that rejection criteria on non-business nominations. Recently, my friend got one approved by appeal.
How it was appealed: I emphasis that is a place for social and recreational activity. Then respond to the rejection reasons. I believe it can be approved by Niantic is because the unreasonably reject criteria gave me strong argument to appeal the wayspot. I bet those abusive reviewers did not expect an appeal system can break their control to the Wayfarer.
Debatable point: It is not generally accepted by the local community mainly just because chess table is not one of the examples of acceptable criteria. Some may argue that it is mass-produced in the whole country (but they don’t reject gazebo with the same reason). Others may pinpoint that it is not visually unique (this is meaningless to affect the social value in my point of view). So I am looking for everyone’s thoughts, it would be way better if it has a official response.
let’s given in two circumstances:
- the chess table is in shared-place of apartment complex, only residents use it as social place.
- the table is in park only exists with two chairs. No shelter on it. Not in a cluster. These may make it looks generic.
Will you accept it/or not? Why?
