Scenic lookout rejection

Hi fellow wayfarers

I just got this rejected both by the reviewers and Niantic after I appealed the nomination. I would like to hear your thoughts on this nomination. Here is the nomination and I will write my thoughts at the end of this post.




Description text:

Mosevej frembyder på en storslået udsigt over Oremosen, Ganløse Ore og Ballerup/Måløv-egnen. I området er der gjort detektorfund, som tyder på, at der har været en bosættelse på bakketoppen i jernalderen - svarende til Ryget Skovby, som ses ude bag Oremosen. Der er bl.a. fundet metalrester af to sydøsteuropæiske smykker fra folkevandringstiden. Midt i dalen nord for vejen ligger en gravhøj, som sandsynligvis er fra stenalderen, da den ligger lavt ved åen – modsat bronzealderhøjene oppe i skoven.

Scenic lookout with rich history attached. Also, various hiking routes goes through this point. See here for info with map: Tur 8 – Ganløse Mosehøj | npmaa

Unfortunately I did not save my appeal text, but I clearly stated that the nomination was a combination of historic site/hill/scenic lookout and not the bench and I also mentioned the bench was in the main picture as an anchor for the scenic lookout because that will improve the chances of a nomination to be accepted.

The link in my supporting info is an official hiking trail with Mosehøj (my nomination) as a point of interrest on the trail.

My thoughts: I really feel it qualifies as a POI because it is scenic lookout with a historic background (unlike other scenic lookouts). I get that a scenic lookout at a lake or mountain top might have a more spectacular view but the view from my nomination is in my oppinion really great. And the rejection text from Niantic states that the bench is normal (as almost any other bench at a scenic lookout), so to me it sounds like they didn’t even bothet the go through the supporting info.

Hmm. That’s not what i would call a scenic lookout. I think of scenic lookouts being at an elevation where you look over an area below and in front of you. At this bench, you’re just looking at a field that is on the same elevation as you.
