- Appeal category: Rejected new submission
- Portal Title: Fietsroutenetwerk 80
- City, Region and Country: Grote Sloot, Burgerbrug, The Netherlands
- Lat/long(s): 52.748, 4.702

Dear +NIA Ops,

In the Netherlands the bicycle is used very often for commuting to work, but in the weekends also for recreational purposes. To facilitate this last purpose in several areas of the country so called bicycle networks are made. Several nodes/numbered waypoints are defined in these networks, which are connected to each other. You can create your own route by choosing succeeding waypoints which are connected. The bicycle paths between these waypoints take you mostly through beautiful nature, special (historical) places, and you often reach places which you can reach by car. Therefore I think this sign (which is waypoint number 80 of the bicycle network "Kop van Noord-Holland" , more information: http://en.nederlandfietsland.nl/en/cycling-daytrips) is absolutely portal worthy, as it is a point of interest that facilitates discovery and exercise: it encourages outdoor exploration.
Please do not immediately reject this appeal. After this rejection more of the bibycle  network information signs came online, so they're definitely good portals. A few examples:

The sign recently has been moved about 10 meters from the middle of the crossing to the side of the road. The submitted location is the new correct location.

Type of appeal: Rejected new submission - duplicate or too close to another existing portal
Portal Title: Canon 3
Location: 52.950657, 4.722585

There are 2 similar canon's already accepted around Fort Kijkduin but both on different locations.
1. https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=52.951302,4.722317&z=17&pll=52.951302,4.722317
2. https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=52.951302,4.722317&z=17&pll=52.951161,4.721362

Also the location is not too close to other surrounding portals, see the picture from the Intel site and the location of the rejected portal The distance. from both nearest portals is at least 30 meters, so it can be safely hacked. The arrow is exactly pointing towards the 3rd canon.

New submission appeals  - 
 
- Appeal category: Rejected new submission
- Portal Title: Museumship Schorpioen
- City, Region and Country: Willemsoord, Den Helder, The Netherlands
- Lat/long(s): 52.962565, 4.771158

Dear +NIA Ops 

The museumship Schorpioen is a part of the in Den Helder on Willemsoord established Marine Museum. It is free to visit and explanation is given on special days about the history of this ship. A short summary is below.
The Zr. Ms. Schorpioen is a Dutch armored ship, was built in 1868 in Toulon, France. The Schorpioen formed together with its sister ship Buffel built in Scotland the core of the then new Royal Navy. They replaced the antiquated wooden ships of both steam propulsion as sails were using and smoothbore guns carried.
During construction, the ship was equipped with two tripod masts. The most eye-catching weapon was the 'ramsteven',
In 1908 the ship was decommissioned and transformed into a host ship. It housed the torpedo service, sailors training and the submarine service.
At the beginning of World War II, the ship fell into German hands and was towed to Germany to serve as the host ship. After the war, in 1947, the Schorpioen was found in Hamburg and towed back to Den Helder, where it was used again as host ship. in 1982 the ram ship was acquired by the Foundation ramship Schorpioen to put it in Middelburg public on the quay. After a long restoration it could open the doors on July 3, 1989.
In December 1998 the Royal Navy bought the ship back from the foundation. After this, the ram ship was braught back to the Naval Museum in Den Helder. In May 2000, after another restoration of eighteen months, the ship was opened to the public.

I think this is really portal worthy.

Dear +NIA Ops,

The former imperial yard Willemsoord, also called Old Navy Yard, since the retreat of the Royal Navy for new shipyard location in Den Helder transformed into a nautical theme park
The unique complex Willemsoord what was once the shipbuilding and repair yard for the Royal Navy, is now a monumental nautical area. The restoration of Willemsoord has for many years been seized as a result a splendid cultural heritage.
Almost all the buildings, the first dating back to 1813 have been restored, also building 51 where they built and repaired naval ships. The building has now been converted into a cinema where at the inside you can still se the old contructions and floors . A beautiful piece of old and new design comes together. This really is a movie theater in a unique location in a unique building..

Rejected New Portal Submission, does not meet the criteria
Portal Name: Woodworking Murals
Location: 52.951913, 4.753411  Sportlaan 54, Den Helder

These two stone plaques are symbolic of the trades that were taught at this former school for prospective guildsmen. The one on the right shows for example the beginner learning to saw wood. Later welding, carpentry and car mechanics were taught. For females there was the school for home economics. The plaque on the left shows clothes being washed in the lessons.

These days the building is a vocational college and has therefore retained its role as an establishment for community education.
Both murals definitely have therefore an important historical and social value and are of interest to many.

Picture on the left is the submitted via the scanner, picture on the right is from Google Streetview.

Rejected New Portal Submission
Portal Name: The Blue Swan
Location: 52.835, 4.758


On July 29th 2014 alderman of art and culture Ben Blonk unveiled last swan on the village square in Callantsoog.
In memory of the former municipality Zijpe mid 2012 is decided to give the 8 villages in the Zijpe a gift in the form of a swan. To artist Rini Clover is then given the task of making eight swans.
The first swan was revealed on December 10, 2012 in "De Herboren Toren" in Burgerbrug and for the completion of the project is the last placed in Callantsoog.
The rejected portal is one of the eight swans, placed in 't Zand in a pond on the Keinsmerweg.

The 7 other swans are placed at these locations.

Burgerbrug - In de “Herboren Toren”
Callantsoog - Dorpsplein
Groote Keeten - Het Dubbelduin-dijkje
Oudesluis - Waterloop tegenover Sportlaan 33
Sint Maartensbrug - In Dorpshuis “De Uijtkijk”
Petten - In het gazon aan de Eriksstraat
Schagerbrug - Op het dijkje bij het hertenkamp
Because there are no streetview photos available I added 1another photo taken this morning.

Wut? Happy to see the addition, but do they allow boats on the village pond? I think that the OP should now post a "selfie on a boat" whilst hacking that.
