Digital Community Information Signs
In a discussion about community noticeboards on this forum, another wayfarer reviewer posted a question about objects that I feel are significantly different in form and function from the item that the original poster was seeking guidance on. This point was made after answers were provided by Niantic and answers from other participants were accepted by the original poster. This post was made so that the question would not be lost by being buried several comments deep in a somewhat related conversation.
The object in question is what I would call a digital community information sign. A few of these have come through my queue and while I don't reject them, I was wondering if they should be considered high quality nominations. I am adding links to some pictures I found from the internet that are examples of what I am asking about. They are not pictures that I am submitting as main pictures in a nomination.
Here are some pros that make them good nominations:
- They are visually distinct
- They provide community information
Here are some cons that make them less than good nominations
- They are designed to provide information to motorists and thus having a large group of people gathered there would obscure information for the intended audience
- They are sometimes nothing more the digital billboards and provide little community value.
In my opinion, the first, second and fourth are pretty good. The third appears to be an advertising platform for a business and because of its main function, it is not a very good candidate.
Are Digital Community Information Signs good candidates?
