Can someone help interpret what i did wrong with this nomination? The denials make zero sense.
Couldn't find info of the museum with a quick search. From the pictures it seems more like a small history corner, perhaps with changing themed displays? Eligible yes, but harder to get accepted.
For the main photo, use just the museum plague and the two memorial plagues below it. Make sure the museum part is the first thing people notice from it.
Description and support text. Tell more about the actual museum, not the person it's dedicated to. In other words, you're supposed to be nominating a Thatcher Hall museum, not dedication plague of Richard Thatcher.
Accessibility rejection reasons are wrong. If the door in support photo is entrance to building, mentioning it and tighter cropping might help.
Something like this?
With an inside display like this, the location criteria is going to be an issue for many, particularly if the building is large. If we can't see it, it could be anywhere inside. Does the building entrance make reference to the museum, is there a sign out front you could use. The lack of any Streetview in the area does not help either.
To me, this looks like a part of a university, a display honoring its founder, not a museum
Did you create a photosphere on google street view ?? If people can’t see the submission they will vote it down because they can’t confirm it’s there.
That's one thing i did not do but I have learned how to now
Very much appreciate the input
As others mentioned, it's hard to locate on map without photosphere inside building, so many reviewers will choose rejection that they can't confirm it's location.
I found this University on map, it has many buildings that don't have streetview available but have many photospheres, some done in not that good places and some are poor quality. Try looking at these photospheres yourself, they're not that good for your nomination.
It's hard to find in which builiding your nomination is (I found at least six building with this university name), maybe mention in support text full name of building it's in? I only found it when I searched for Thatcher Hall alone, because it's not shown on map. And near this building you don't have any streetview, but you have one very bad photosphere that I'm pretty sure is shown to your reviewers - it's show a bit of pavement to other building near your building, it was made on late sunset and is a bit blurry, this photosphere for sure isn't helping your nomination. Second close photosphere is even worse, it shows some big cat/panther statue, some rocks and bushes, and only from far away you see buildings, it doesn't help either.
Try making photosphere in place your nomination is, it could help a lot. It doesn't mean it would be accepted for sure as for someone it still might look temporary or something, but you will have more chance with nice photosphere.
Is there a certain steps to getting a photosphere published? I have taken multiple but when I go into the street view app, all i get is a black screen when I tap on my photosphere and it shows 0 published
As sogNinjaman-ING just posted link, I hope it'll help.
I don't really know at what step your photosphere stoped, but after taking it, I had to go to StreetView app and choose it to be published, you must need to have good connection at that time so it will be sent with no problem to Google server. After this photosphere should become visible pretty quickly. I think mine was added after a few hours (I checked for it at the same day and it was added), but sometimes it might take more than a day. I hope you will get yours published with no problems soon :)
