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: https://niantic.helpshift.com/a/wayfarer/

Came across this, I was going to reject right away but then read description

I'm going to use my skip on it, but I was wondering, if something like this came up again, would it be acceptable or a rejection

    @gazzas89-PGO Here are some examples of similar AMA responses to your above question.


    Overall these would likely be a rejection unless there was some extra cultural or historical value.


    Q50: Are charity headquarters valid candidates? I'd think they'd fall under candidates that connect people but haven't seen any info about charities in the submission Guidelines.

    A50: According to NIA OPS, “If they have cultural significance or have done something significant for the community, sure. Just make sure the Wayspot description mentions the significance to help other reviewers take the call.”


    Q49: While little free libraries are valid portal candidates, what about blessing boxes (miniature food and hygiene banks)?

    A49: NIA OPS response is, “At this time no. Libraries are part of our criteria and are included as a nod to education and discovery. Blessing boxes would not fall into this category.”

    I'm in agreement with @AgentB0ss-ING. While a novel idea, a "simple" drop off / share location isn't inherently eligible.

    A few things that could be eligible would be educational signage about the history and value of the program or art/decoration associated to it such as a wood carving or painted mural on the side.

    Definitely reject. It's no different that donation drop-off boxes or blessing boxes. They simply don't meet the acceptance criteria.

    I came across this as well. I gave it 1* and the reasoning of not meeting criteria. While it's a fantastic idea and a brilliant community thing, I struggle to see what criteria it actually meets.
