Can someone clarify why this was rejected?

This is litterally a permanent painting with the name of the St-Charles river that had been there for years. It was even made by an official street artist (bird²). You could litterally see it on Satellite views. It was rejected for not being permanent even though it is and I even took the time to explain it in the additional info part. There is tons of pedestrians that go through that part and taking a photosphere of it was frustrating. I guess it might have been mistaken for a random tag, but this is permanent.

    Eh, I think that's a stretch to grant it mural status. It's just the painted on name of a river in different colors. There's not actually a whole lot of artistic talent on display there. It's basically just looks like a graffiti name sign for the river, which doesn't seem very permanent. The angle also makes for a less-than-ideal photo (though I'm guessing you had to do that to get the whole name in the photo).

    huh. I thought my other topic was just never posted, so since I cannot delete it, I would appreciate if a mod would delete this one and just let other post in the other one.

    The fact that it is painted over another work of graffiti should be an indication of its lack of permanence. If every work of graffiti in a sketchy location was going to qualify as a pokestop, it would just encourage an explosion of tagging. We shouldn't be encouraging that by making pokestops out of it.
