Once again rejected for false reasons

why this is rejected for being temporary ??

it’s a permanent sculpture impossible to move because it was directly made on a tree... i don’t understand the rejection. It’s perfectly ok with criteria

really upset by false rejection and the impossibility to make an appeal of that.

    It was a living object. It's been cut. It is dead and is going to rot away. You may disagree with the viewpoints of the reviewers who selected that but it a reasonable disagreement. Overcome the objection to how long it lasts by researching life spans of simliar objects.

    If the bridge and the exercise equipment are not already in game, then those are easier to get approved.

    The sculpture was here since 5years ans the village repaint it every year.

    i don’t submit the bridge because too many people here think bridges are generic...

    the exercise is currently being evaluated.

    but the place with tables where the sculpture is is a really good place of the village so i think it would be a great different wayspot.

    I do think it is eligible.

    I have some accepted in a local park in my area. I think you should specified that it is indeed "a permanent sculpture impossible to move because it was directly made on a tree" in the description and text to the reviewers.

    With a guick glance it is really looks like something not permanent that can be split into two, from the picture alone.

    It was a living object. It's been cut. It is dead and is going to rot away.

    I am sorry but I do not see how this are a criteria of non eligibility.

    In our local park we have a "mushroom tree" PoI very similar to this, which was approved as part of wayfarer.

    One thing that might help is if you can include the artist who carved it, or if it was commissioned by someone locally, you could mention this.

    If something were to be ineligible because it will rot in 20 years then hardly any PoIs would exist. This is not the way we are supposed to rate things as "temporary". Temporary is for if it is not likely be there in a few weeks, not a few years. Otherwise anything can be thought temporary!

    I would try it again. Wood carvings are something that can be eligible. Good luck!

    Also, the rooting argument is not pertinent to my point of view : cutted wood treated is not going to root in two days. The sculture is probably going to last for really long. And it is a sculture, so perfectly eligible as such.

    Also there is no chance that the bridge pass a review.

    So, according to you, everything made of wood is ineligible? Lookout towers, bridges, gazebos, crosses, totem poles - these will all eventually rot away.

    So no, this is not a good argument. This carving was clearly made to last for a long time, so it's permanent.

    It looks like a good nomination to me, quite cute really, but I see why I'd be a bit difficult to vouch for it's durability from just that picture, it could might as well be a couple of wood pieces stacked together real quick just for a photo, if it helps you with anything, what I'd do rather than a photosphere (which could be helpful too) is film a short video where you slightly push the sculpture to prove that it is actually rooted to the ground, then upload it to YouTube and share the link under the supportive information section.
