I live in a new rural development that has exploded with new residences and one paper, it has a number of community park and gathering areas that seemed to me to be prime pokestop locations.
an open grass area next to a pond that is used for exercising and community gatherings such as picnics. It's in a safe area, easily accessible to the public, safe to access, is a place to interact with others in the community and be outdoors.
a lake which has a walking track around it to encourage people to exercise. Once again, safe to access, public area.
a community gathering spot of rocks, specifically installed for people to sit and talk. It's basically where a playground SHOULD be but the council was too cheap to install any playground equipment or anything more than a circle of rocks next to a grassed area.
There are no signs, plaque and never will be (see point above about the council being cheap). There is no artwork or other installations and there never will be (see point above about the council being cheap). We won't have these markers but as far as the developers and council is concerned, that is all the community needs for parks and exercise.
I have tried to explain this in my pokestop submissions but so far I have received quick rejections with not much information on why they are rejected other than it does not meet the criteria. The thing is, I was sure that it did meet the criteria but with no information on WHAT criteria these points not meet, there is nothing I knowingly can do that can improve their understanding that these are genuine submissions with the only options for people to access pokestops in an entire town community (yes, there are none in that community). No one is going to drive 30kms to reach their nearest pokestop to spin it.
So what are your thoughts or advice on how can these three options (they are the only options as we have no signs or markers or other things of note to use for this community, not even common services like post offices, libraries or shops...all a drive away).
