Clarifications to take into account when evaluating a Spanish proposal
First of all, I would like to thank everyone for having reviewed the Spanish proposals; we are all noticing how progress is being made on proposals that have been stagnant for too many years. But there are a number of problems that are puzzling many of us and that we do not understand and that I would like to proceed to clarify.
The first problem is that all the "Professional College" proposals are being completely rejected. This does not refer to a children's school, but to a professional association of people who exercise a profession recognized by the state. I do not know how this institution is called in other countries, but in Spain, this institution is necessary for graduates in medicine, law, architecture... to be able to practice. Apart from the fact that it is a place where people who share a profession can socialize and create contacts.
The second problem, also related to the first one, has to do with everything that has to do with "training" because for some unknown reason, we are realizing that all proposals that have something of a formative nature, people interpret it as K-2 and reject it.
These types of proposals refer to vocational training schools, teacher training centers, university centers, colleges, etc... Please, these are valid proposals that meet the eligibility and acceptance criteria. These stops cannot be rejected because the word "school" or "center" appears. They are valid proposals that do not have to do with a children's school, day care centers and so on, so please keep that in mind.
The third problem is the rejection of plaques with the name of a place or associations or the like.
This type of proposals are the way to make them known, the fact of rejecting them without any reason, honestly is something that is starting to bother us and we hope that measures will be taken.
I cannot ask for a municipal building in which it is clear what it is and the area where it is because if you see the plaque indicating what it is, it is automatically a guaranteed rejection. We do not understand why this is so or if it is different in other countries, but we cannot pretend to reject valid proposals, which are correctly requested, when in the country of the reviewer in question it does not work that way. Honestly it's something we can't change, but it's clearly not against niantic's rules.
Finally, the issue of sources. If memory serves, Niantic classified them as "good places to socialize." So, with that being said, how is it possible that since the challenge began, not a single source has been accepted? And we are not talking about the typical ones (which according to niantic standards are valid) but rather those that are striking and unique.
I wish everyone could take these recommendations into account, because it is being a good challenge, but with a rather bittersweet touch for these reasons @NianticTintino-ING.
Thank you very much for all the work and effort dedicated
All the best
