I assume these wouldnt be allowed, but I've seen several people arguing over them saying that they either get in the way of medical problems, or help to find them
This wasnt my submission or anything. I was just hoping @NianticCasey-ING could give clarification so theres no debate over them
I also hope that we get clarification on these. It doesn't fit any of the criteria, so it wouldn't be eligible, but so many people seem to not care unless Niantic explicitly says "not unless it meets other criteria".
The answer is very simple. They don't meet criteria. Niantic shouldn't have to create a list of things that doesn't meet criteria. We are suppose to use our own critical thinking skills.
Just agreeing with the others (sometimes it helps if you can show people a thread where multiple people are all saying the same thing). These meet zero criteria. And it would have the potential of blocking emergency services.
Whilst I don't feel these come under the blocking of emergency services block (they're for public use - emergency services carry their own) I agree that they simply don't meet any criteria to accept them.
Ineligible any time of the day, I've also seen loads pass by.
@Faversham71-ING while emergency services have their own, I feel they are still used in case of emergency and fall into the same category. You could always have a doctor strolling by who needs to access it to assist someone for example.
Plenty of other reasons to reject in any case.
Yeah I thought so to, I can maybe see the ones that are old red phone boxes but that's more because they are red phone boxes. But these kind of ones I agreed they shouldnt pass at all
Just imagine in urgent condition, doctor need to find defibrillators and got it blocked by people playing & standing near the object. Failed to find the defib, preventable loss happen. Just because it isn't specifically listed in rejection criteria, doesn't mean it would be eligible for nomination. I do believe submitter have the thoughts too, but choose to ignore it as "it's never been used" and deliberately push their luck to submit.
With the same thoughts my concern for fire hydrants. Take example of other objects like fire extinguisher or fire hose box, they have dedicated space to make sure they are not obstructed in case of emergency. Better be safe and cautious than sorry.
Edit: some might disagree, but please do keep the thought of what could obstruct life-saving equipment in emergency. None of our opinion would matter in emergency situation :)
No criteria met.
In regards to blocking emergency services or people needing to know where it is, those defibrillators are for use by the general public, and a 999 operator would mention if one is nearby.
No, it won't meet any criteria.
In regards to "help to find them" argument, I would say it's ridiculous if you're trying to find it via Ingress/Pokemon GO. And as the others said, even if you find it, some players still raiding T5 might block your way to access it (even this situation is extremely rare to occur), so it would also fall to "obstruct emergency access" criteria.
