Here in UK Bowling Greens are accepted as wayspot. What's more, when entering the website, one of the valid examples is of a bowling green. Any explanation why it was rejected?
"The Bainfield Bowling and Social Club is situated in the West side of Edinburgh on Hutchison Crossway just off Gorgie Road. It is one of the largest bowling clubs in the UK with two outdoor greens. This is the second outdoor green."
"Please use Google MAPS (satellite) instead of Google Street View to check the existence of the bowling club. This type of sports club have already been accepted as a stop in other parts of the city. The stop is accessible from a pedestrian street next to the bowling club. It is NOT a NATURAL feature. It is NOT a DUPLICATE of the other stop. Thank you."
nvm lol. I think maybe just lazy reviewers, thinking it is a natural feature? What are thr rejection criteria named in the E-Mail?
Is there a sign? In order to get something like this approved it needs a man made object to tie the nomination to, otherwise it will most likely get rejected for being a natural feature. I'm not sure if bowling greens have some other kind of man made object like other types of sports field? For example, instead of using a sign for the primary photo, one can also use things like goals or nets (provided they are set there permanently). I'm not familiar with this sport/activity, so I apologize for my ignorance.
another idea would be the little house in the middle back of the picture
I remember reviewing this submission and I think the problem lies with that a wayspot already exists for the club/building that owns the fields.
While you have submitted a photo of one of the fields they use, your description and supporting information constantly talk about the club itself.
I recommend changing the name, description and supporting info so that it focuses on the fields itself and perhaps provide something unique about the fields. Otherwise it’s going to continue to be seen as a duplicate of the club.
There is no criteria in the email. Thanks.
The club has 3 fields. One indoor and two outdoor. I have seen that in training football fields there are independent wayspots for each field. The current stop can be used for the indoor green, but I think the other two greens are also acceptable. They are also quite far from the indoor green. I will change the description.
oh i answered in the duplicate post
Thank you. What do you think about this?:
"Athletic field of closely mowed turf for playing bowls. This the second outdoor green. It is used for bowling since 1924."
"This application is about the sport field, not the social club. It is NOT A DUPLICATE of the other wayspot. The location can be confirmed on satellite view. It is accessible from a pedestrian street next to the field. It is NOT A NATURAL feature. Thank you."
