Who are these people that reject things without proper explanations etc?
I have just had a nomination rejected.
The excuse - The nomination appears to contain extraneous objects or identifiers not representativve of the nomination. Nomination appears to be a natural feature (waterfall, mountain, lake, etc) that is not connected to a man-made object.) Nomination does not meet acceptance criteria.
I see way points at Newtown for a water bubbler. A storm over flow pipe at Rose Bay. Survey Marks left right and centre and this is rejected for a non existant reason. My comment here is about the silly rejection excuse!!!!
It is a small reserve on Chaleyer Street. This reserve is on Google Maps. Street View shows it. It is listed by Waverley Council as a small nature reserve. Sure it is tiny. Sure it has a water bubbler and a bench in it.I proide photos of it that are clearly almost exactly the same as Street view. My nominated google map placement is almost exactly on the Google map marker that says Chaleyer Street Reserve. It is a place to socialise and to stop and rest on your walks. With grass and trees.
DID YOU BOTHER to look at the photo. Look at Street View. Look at the normal Map view. Did you look at the evidence link to Waverley Council list of local parks and reserves.
It is like my local cafe getting rejected because it did not meet criteria. Even though it is a great place to socialise. It is the only cafe for 500m in one direction ad 2000m in all other directions - so you have to exercise to get to it. With a great mural on the inside and painted on the outside to look way older. And this system accepts Starbucks and Gazebos...The reviewer did not even give an excuse.
There is a set of reviewers who DO NOT know the criteria. AND importantly DO NOT READ or engage with the nomination. I find it mind boggling, depressing and disappointing.
When it is right it is right. And I get it and accept it. And if I disagree I nominate again.. But these .... AAAAAARGHHHH. And yes I know the system. I review myself. I put effort in... Have the respect to do the same... Please ;-)
