Help getting a POI in a very rural area.
Hello, I submitted a POI and to be honest i didn't think it would get approved but is was worth a try and really the only spot around i could think of worth trying. I live in a very wooded area and my neighborhood is rather small. We really don't have any features that would stand out in a photo but the one place i tried is a decent place for a POI. I figured i would try the community pond/beach/boat ramp/fishing spot. Its a public area with a good amount of curb side parking and lots of public space.
The spot i chose to focus on was the boat ramp but sadly it isn't much of a ramp and has no sign. Its just a small concrete road connecting from the street intersecting through the beach into the water. It divides the area into a fishing spot and swimming spot. It was rejected for being a natural spot which its not but maybe because i included the pond in the background. It was also rejected for being on private property or a farm which its not and my supporting photo clearly showed the public beach and parking. I also cannot provide much information on it except the decade it was built and what its used for.
There isn't a poke stop or gym for many miles around and naturally id try near where i live and where i know others play. In an area with nothing more than ponds, trees and street signs how am i to get a poke stop if truly the best spot is not good enough? I thought about making a permanent sign supporting our boat ramp but i don't think i could make one all that interesting.
Does anyone know any ideas or things i can try in my area? We have no stores or statues or art around its just houses and woods, streets and rocks and ponds. I really like the feature to nominate spots and i can see it working out really well for well populated area but from what i have read there is not much support for rural players.
