Clarification about urban graffitis

I'm not sure if this type of graffiti can be mark as a good wayspot or not?

What should I do when I see this type of art with nicknames, signatures, etc.

ps: ignore the fence at the front

    Graffiti aka vandalism is not eligible. Its considered temporary because often than not they get removed. They also hold no artistic value to be rated on

    @BlockyPretzail-PGO prior to the criteria updates the Wayfarer site used to include the following guidance for graffiti/street art submissions

    While spray-painted artworks and murals are acceptable, graffiti tags that just include the graffiti writer's name or initials are ineligible. Additionally, graffiti tags are often regularly removed so they may also be ineligible under the non-permanent criteria.

    Although this guidance may be outdated, my personal view is that your example image would be ineligible as it is just a name or tag. If it were more artistic, I would be looking for some evidence that it was permanent (or at the very least that it has existed for a number of years).
