Waypoint: Acrise Village Sign

Location : 51.13851° N, 1.13603° E

City : Acrise, Folkestone

Country : UK

Hi me again. Please take another look at this please. It is a hand carved sign very unique and greets visitors who are encouraged to explore. It is not generic. Plenty of safe pedestrian access and considering reviewers are accepting the Folkestone one (not my nomination) mine is more visually unique and an artwork of sorts. Thanks.

    You nomination is situated in the middle of a road junction - there is no "pedestrian access" to the location. In accessability terms, it is the same as being in the middle of a roundablut or traffic island, there is no pedestrian footway to the location. The "Pedestrian Access" rejection reason is correct.

    Rubbish. I got there fine. It’s not a traffic island. Plenty of green area to stand. I managed it perfectly fine. It’s a rural village. So stop assuming about places you’ve never been.

    You got there fine. I've seen plenty of places in exactly the same sort of situation that I could get to without problems. You asked why Niantic might have rejected your appeal for "Pedestrian Access". I'm just giving you the Niantic POV on localities like this - nothing to do with me "assuming about places I've never been too". No pedestrian pathway - "no access".

    Why is this an ineligible Wayspot nomination?

    Pedestrian Access

    Use for nominations that do not have a safe, pedestrian pathway leading to the object. Note that it is not sufficient to be able to access the nomination from a nearby sidewalk. There must be a pedestrian walkway or a trail leading all the way to the object. Remote nominations, such as those on mountain tops or on small islands, are acceptable if they can safely be accessed on foot.
