Suggestion always get marked as duplicated but it isn!

I submitted Hohenthurm's knight's hall several times. each time it is rejected as a duplicate. the reviewers apparently think that the castle and the knight's hall are one and the same building, but they are 2 different buildings. In addition, the waypoint "Schloss Hohenthurm" (Castle Hohenthurm) is a fake, I have also reported this several times. Evidence of this can also be found on the website of the local home club

Please finally delete the Wayspot "Schloss Hohenthurm" because it's fake and finally accept the "Rittersaal Hohenthurm".a

Framed on the screenshots:

-in red, the "Schloss Hohenthurm" (castle Hohenthurm) (photo and waypoint in ingress are fake)

-in green, the "Rittersaal Hohenthurm" (Knights' Hall of Hohenthurm)

    "Schloss Hohenthurm" (Caste Hohenthurm) exists and is an L-shape when viewed from above, to the right of which is the "Rittersaal Hohenthurm" (Knights Hall Hohenthurm).

    The photo of "Schloss Hohenthurm" shows the Martin-Luther-Kirche (Martin-luther-church) and our symbol the Hohenthurm (High Tower), which are at 51.5223328, 12.0966118!

    When a nomination gets marked as a duplicate, the image gets loaded onto the stop that it duplicates. Which one is getting the Rittersaal Hohenthurm images?

    Maybe the Knight's Hall is on the Lightship database, but not loaded to PoGO.

    Or, if your pictures have been added to the fake one - you could vote yours up, and submit edits for name and description. Making it real.

    This Photo was taken from:

    51,5222494, 12,0973142

    It shows that "Schloss Hohenthurm" is a fake!

    They mark the Castle Hohenthurm (Schloss Hohenthurm), which is another building to the left of the knights hall. You can also see it in sateliteview. The thing is, Castle Hohenthurm isn't freely accessible for people and also it shows a wrong picture as i have written above.

    Also i reported "Schloss Hohenthurm" in ingress because it's not accessible and because it's private ground. Our village is searching more than 50 years for in other words, descendants who may have property rights inherit.

    the Knights' Hall, however, is open to the public and can also be accessed from the street.

    But Niantic today wrote by mail that they will not accept the removal.

    I have tried this but Niantic didn't accept it... And yes, it is only in ingress not in pogo. See posts above this one.

    The portal "Schloss Hohenthurm" coords: 51.52211,12.095182, is not by the rules: -not accessable, -private ground, -fake picture.

    The picture was stolen from this coords as you can see in sateliteview:

    @rpg4e-PGO All of them have safe pedestrian access except the one that's a wayspot already?

    @Hosette-ING The coat of arms at the gate, the church and the knight's hall can be reached from the outside. The courtyard cannot be entered as the gate is locked & sealed by the municipality. You can't get to the castle (no. 4) and there is still a portal with a fake photo in Ingress, which was probably taken from Wikipedia. There is also no way to get to the castle from the outside. The Knights' Hall has its own entrance on the street side and there are occasional guided tours, so you can always touch it as you walk by. We would like to suggest the church and the tower as a Pokestop, but this has probably already been rejected as a duplicate by another player in the past, with reference to the castle, since a fake photo is used there.

    The coat of arms at the gate is also an arena, see Intel coordinates. But this is ok, because you can reach it from the street and touch the gate.

    @NianticLC please have a look at this and delete the fake portal ( Nr.4 in the photo above )

    The first time when i suggested the Knights hall spot then i thought it's the castle. That is why they rejected it the first time. After some research i was told about the portal in ingress. This portal Shows a fake picture, as written above and as you can see by the picture or by the coordinates.

    I went to our home-club and they told me that the castle is the building nr4. The Knights hall was build much later. The castle isn't accessable for people - it's not public - There is no access to it and the heirs of the former owners have been sought for over 50 years by the village.

    Based on what you’ve posted, which I believe is accurate, the portal isn’t fake, it’s incorrect. Fake would be a photoshopped image or a title of something that is nowhere to be found; this is a legitimate image and a legitimate title, the combination of image and title and pin location doesn’t match. What needs to be done is to submit edits so that the image, title, and location do match. Once that one is correct, then worry about the next.

    Hi @rpg4e-PGO! We took another look at the Wayspot in question and decided that it does not meet our criteria for removal at this time. Thanks!
