Live in Wayfarer 3.1 is a new set of acceptance criteria! Please browse the information in this category with caution as it is in reference to the previous review guidelines. To learn more about the new criteria, see here:

Local radio station

I've asked @NianticCasey-ING in the past but never got an answer. Hopefully will get one this time.

Local community radio stations in or out?

    If you can walk up to the door without trespassing or a security guard trying to forcibly remove you id say that's a Yes.

    There's a blurb in the Niantic Support Eligible Wayspots page the states the following:

    "In addition to using the above acceptance criteria, we often add nominations that are a special nod to industries and networks that connect people around the world."

    Which is why Post Offices are generally a 4* nomination. A community radio station in the same aspect serves particular communities of interest, are run by the community and is kind of like a noticeboard, except over radio waves. They're also great places to help people connect through listeners, especially talkback radio and are a staple for many people.

    Community radio is an excellent way to increase community cohesion and connect listeners through its outreaches. That gives me a solid 4* reason to accept them. Commercial radio on the other hand, it really depends on its varying degree of community involvement.

    I do remember seeing that blurb from Niantic when I first started submitting and reviewing a couple of years ago. You can absolutely walk up to the door and even go inside. As I say it's a community radio station it hasnt got big name dJs Inside it is very much local. But it is cool the studio is in the main window you can see them present shows as you walk past.

    It's been rejected every time I have put it in last time it had 5 reasons why it had been rejected. I've add 360 photo and still nothing.

    I have mentioned that other local radio stations have been approved and are live portals but goes unnoticed.
