Aren't there a way to appeal this absolutely idiotic rejection so I haven't wasted my UPGRADE???!!!
How in the name of F... is this ever a none-man made object. I've never seen nature popping this things up themseleves. ABSOLUTELY FUMING!!!
Not yet. But Niantic have said that they are working on a system where we can appeal rejections, and on improving their systems to detect and punish reviewers who do not follow the criteria. So hopefully something like that will be released sometime this year.
German reviewers (like me) often ge those kind of nominations to review. And everyone got a different opinion on them. At the end, its pure luck whether those markers are getting accepted or not.
Really? That’s good news. I’m fed up with a lot of ridiculous rejections.
Anyway, I believe that education is more important than punishment. As far as I know, many reviewers in my country don’t know that private residences are specific to single-family residences due to the translation problem. Only a minority of reviewers who often read the forum know the correct criteria. In my opinion, letting reviewers know if their decision is correct is a good method. It helps the reviewers to evaluate themselves.
I hope this feature will be released soon.
Something glitched with my previous post. Retry...
What is being done to curb incorrect rejections for nominations that meet all of the criteria? Will there be a way to escalate incorrect rejections directly to the Niantic team for re-review?
Offering a list of the criteria as part of the nomination process to challenge submitters to offer insight into what criteria the nomination falls under.
Offering feedback for disagreements between reviewers and the final decision as well as information about where reviewers decided differently from the Niantic reviewed submissions.
Would the Wayfarer team consider doing a live or recorded video of them reviewing nominations to help better educate the community?
Don't expect anything "soon". The redesigned nomination review process was scheduled for mid January, so we should hear from that in the coming weeks. All the other stuff will probably not be released before summer, and if all of this is released by the end of the year, I will be really happy.
