What you guys think about nominations inside shopping malls. What should be accepted and what shouldn't?
Any area that promotes exploring, exercise, or socializing. Decorative fountains, murals, play areas, arcades, fitness centers, putt putt golf, Pickleball, cinemas. Rock climbing are a few I could think of.
@VastExplorer-ING Ah yes the great debate. What @MsPacman111-PGO says.....
So for shopping centres, plaza, mall et al
The Niantic Eligibility come first
Is it a great place to explore, socialise or exercise.
Then does it meet the acceptance criteria or is it impacted by the rejection criteria
And always remember. eligibility does not equal acceptability. And just because it exists somewhere else does not mean that one should or yours should. Existance elsewhere is not an excuse for acceptance of another nomination or potential nomination. Pass on its own feet as it were. As Niantic leaves plenty of dubious POIs alive!
That said. Yes of course. Sculptures. Water features. Gyms. Good Art. Good local unique coffee shops (not chains) etc. Plenty of positives for what is in a centre.
Go by the criteria and work back from there.
PS Those place name signs on the outside that are full of advertising for the brands inside. Tend not to pass most people idea of acceptable or eligible. As such some people get cranky about it :-)
Note: While reviewing these, can't find the exact location of the nomination because they are usually covered by the roof top of the shopping mall.
Somebody may submit a fake under guise of a shopping mall, even though it doesn't exist at the place.
That's up to the nominator to provide enough evidence that it would exists at that spot. The reviewer can rate the location 3 stars when he's not certain, and it can be lower depending on the amount of doubts he has.
Yes ideally the supporting photo would show enough stores or other surroundings to verify that it is indeed inside the mall. That makes it at least 3* since it’s reasonable to assume it’s in the correct place. Many local reviewers will even know the specific layout of the mall.
