    1. Noticeboards - generally okay, but you might struggle in that it doesn't appear to be used
    2. Graffiti - always a difficult call - it's not a simple tag so may pass but not a strong nomination - would need to convince reviewers it was interesting enough to meet the explore criteria.
    3. Bridge - unless it's only for pedestrians and forms part of a trail probably not - it doesn't look like it's something people would generally explore
    4. Bus stop - no
    5. wooden thing -no idea what it is
    6. Bystricany - I'm guessing this a train station? If it is it might pass, but people still generally vote on it needing to be a mass transit hub.

    Do you feel they meet the great place to explore criteria and can you write a description that will convince most reviewers they do?

    1. Is it information on pigs in the area? I think that should be acceptable.
    2. graffiti: it looks like it’s in a tunnel & tunnels usually for traffic & not pedestrians, so wouldn’t pass for being unsafe. If it does have a sidewalk, it should be acceptable but still hard to get through.
    3. bridge: Bridges are fine, as long as it’s not only for cars as it would make spot unsafe.
    4. street signs are just generic and not an acceptable poi.
    5. im not sure what this is. More info is needed.
    6. If this is a main station for public transit, a library, or gym it’d pass. If it’s a restaurant or cafe, you’re going to have to be really convincing that it’s a good, popular spot & have to have supportive information to have a chance to get accepted. If it’s some generic business, no.

    full submissions would make it easier to help.

    Hello and Welcome @chalmova-PGO

    You are doing the right thing to ask for help to identify places worthy of submission.

    From what you provided both @Faversham71-ING and @TenshiBisket-PGO have given good responses. And in doing so have given more clues as to why something wouldn’t count.

    Can you say more about number 5 please as we are all puzzled as to what it is.

    For 1 and 6 they have potential. We would need to see another picture of 1 that shows the noticeboard and the area it stands in so we can look at accessibility. For 6 some further details about what it is.

    If you are happy to do so can you post exactly where this is Town and coordinates are good. We can then have the wider context and perhaps find other thing 😎

    As a Czech nominator, I might provide a good insight into these :).

    1) Meets the rules, but might take multiple attempts to get approved. It's a good candidate for an appeal.

    2) It does look somewhat artistic, but it's not great. You would need a better photo where the graffiti stands out more for this to have any chance. You might want to play with this in a graphics app.

    3) You got a beautiful photo there, it should be accepted, at least as long as it's accessible for pedestrians.But bridges or footbridges are never easy accepts and might take 2-3 attempts.

    4) Bus stops don't have a chance.

    5) Unclear what that is, but might have a chance if you can figure it out.

    6) Train stations, unlike bus stops, are an easy accept around here, even if it is a small train station in a village.

    A ešte by som sa chcel spýtať na tuto bustu je to busta pápeža a je v blízkosti kaplnky Panny Márie ktorú už schválili ale bustu nechcú

    And I would also like to ask about this bust, it is a bust of the Pope and it is near the chapel of the Virgin Mary, which has already been approved but they do not want the bust

    Yes, the bust can go through, but may need several attempts. If possible, don't include the chapel in the supporting image, or include as little of it as possible. I had a similar issue with statues in front of a church, some people kept marking it as duplicate, even though the statues were separate and interesting on their own.

    Trails are good candidates, but I would look for a more obvious placeholder. You may want to wait until some signage is put in place.

  • Faversham71-INGFaversham71-ING Posts: 725 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Looks perfectly valid as a separate nomination to a chapel. As suggested by @NorbertG82-PGO try and avoid showing too much of the chapel in the photos. Obviously if you're hoping for it to appear in a specific game you may need to check proximity/cell location in relation to the church. Personally I nominate what I feel is a good wayspot regardless of whether it will appear in a game.
