Appeal Removed Wayspot

Title of the Wayspot: Cockatoo or Two

Location: 42.806375,147.631794

City: Forcett, TAS

Country: Australia

Screenshot of the Rejection Email: N/A

Photos to support your claim:

Additional information:

This small mural of a cockatoo is permanently painted on a powerpole. This Wayspot was wrongly removed (likely by the opposing Ingress team).

The Wayspot is safe to access, and significant as sulphur crested cockatoos inhabit this rural area.

The photos show the surrounding area for reference - you can see the shop over the road to the left, and the bus top on the same side of the road to the right.

Apologies for nighttime photos. Happy to take some more photos in daylight if that will help. Have tried creating a photosphere of this area before but had some trouble.

    This appears to have questionable pedestrian access, being on the side of a road with no obvious pedestrian lane.

    Also can you confirm what the property behind the post is? (The photos look like it might be a single family residence.)

    It is a rural area - access to the Wayspot is the same as it is to the bus stop - safely by roadside. There are no paved walkways like in urban areas. To walk between the bus stop, the community hall, and the shop, you can walk safely off the road :-)

    Hi Niantic,

    Since submitting this appeal two more valid Wayspots in the same rural area have been removed.

    It's really disappointing that antisocial behaviour (bullying and targeting of players) goes unchecked.

    Is there any way to get this appeal looked into? I am concerned posting more appeals to this forum will go unanswered like this one from August 7, 2022.

    To be honest I'd submit a photosphere to check the accessibility of this wayspot. As the previous reviewer said, I agree with the questionable pedestrian access, it's not like you can stay there safely in case a car is driving.

    Thanks for your reply.

    This Wayspot is on the "sidewalk" close to the bus stop. The bus stop has an insignia on it which was a Wayspot that was also removed recently. I'm quite sure the bus stop is safely accessible to pedestrians so am not sure on what grounds that Wayspot was removed....

    I don't know how is your current situation but this will pose a problem... Some people like to do warfare on forums rather than complaining about what is and not what is

    I have stopped, parked my car, and engaged with this wayspot many times. There is plenty of room to park as is next to a bus stop where coaches stop for passengers to embark. There are zero issues with access and is on crown land not on private property. This should be reinstated.
