Quick question. Is being generic still a reason to reject?
As far as i understand it its not a genuine rejection criteria anymore, but its comprised in the "not an eligible Point of Interst " aspect, that is, no thouroghly explained reason to meet, exercise or explore here.
Short answer, use "doesn't meet criteria" instead.
Niantic reviewers still can use it for some reason, the community at large cannot. But “Other Rejection Criteria” works well enough.
Yes, if a nomination is generic, we are instructed to reject it.
See the second sentence at https://wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/new/criteria/rejection
Does not seem to be a great place of exploration, place for exercise, or place to be social. The object is mass-produced, generic, or not visually unique or interesting.
Rejection reason "Other Rejection Criteria" fits this situation best.
As others have said, rejection reason "generic business" was removed two years ago - for us crowd-sourced reviewers, although Niantic reviews might still return it.
This opinion seems to be oversimplified? Hiking trails, for example, are great places to exercise but the markers are often mass-produced and uninteresting to non-hikers. Yet they represent specific points to that trail. The first sentence seems to be precedent.
