Knowing this area reasonably well, I feel that I should speak up here here.

Leyland B21 wasn't incorrect. The question was, "where is it?", and as the bus is clearly located in the middle of the intersection of Springvale and Ferntree Gully roads, the first answer of Springvale Road surely cannot be considered incorrect.

If the question had been "what road is the bus travelling along?" instead, then he totally would've been incorrect, as the answer would've been Ferntree Gully road. The rules of the game state that the poster can make specific criteria at the time of posting.

If the poster of the photo deems that Springvale Road is "not correct enough", then shouldn't this person have asked for more information in the answer, rather than just dismissing this guess to be wrong outright, despite the fact that the bus is physically located where the guess was?

A pedantic attitude like this only serves to discourage people from playing these games in future. :(

Thanks for speaking up.

As it was at an intersection, I agree with Railwaybus that it cannot be considered incorrect.

In future when users are posting their where is it picture, I ask that you please
A.Be more specific if you want information like e.g. of which road the bus travelling along.
B.or when deeming such an answer is not correct enough like the above example, that you ask for more information, than just dismissing this guess to be wrong outright.(As at least then they know their guess was in the right place, but the poster just wants more information)

Now I think to be fair, I will open it up to anyone to post a picture.

But all users please take not of what been said above.
Users who wish to discuss this any further, are most welcome to PM me.

Cheers

The shelter in the background looks a bit like those at St Ignatius College in Drysdale. Is that where the bus is?

No, there's no Dysons routes that operate along there apart from up at the station. You need to guess further north than Greensborough.
