Here's what I am talking about. I am not sure, I think I saw it at least 6 times in the last days.
Maybe a honeypot by Niantic. I also have gotten two edits like thirty times now over two years.
Same here, one or two particular edits keep appearing in my review stream with monotonus regularity.,
That would be a pretty dishonest honeypot because the two descriptions are perfectly fine.
All the same edit, obviously a fully correct edit.
As being in the same province of the OP, I also see this same edit every two days. And both titles or both descriptions are fine.
Other wayspots have also the same problem : location edit and other title/description edits that comes back every two days.
Other screenshots from our local comunity :
I can confirm that Niantic have manually fixed that wayspot over a year and half ago and I still don't understand why there's an edit in voting. It was poorly located after the university did some refection and the artwork was moved back & forth many times. It had many edits ongoing and it took weeks, even months until an agreement was completed.
I have personally contacted them to fix it with geotagged and time-stamped pictures to get it straight since it really looked awkward in game and they fixed it right away with the description and names written on the plaques, not the one I've suggested, which was better than expected and even set a standard across our community on how to name future artworks. Here's a screenshot of the concerned e-mail.
If it's a honeypot, it's cheaply made... because all suggestions are pretty much accurate and can confuse anyone who's not a local
I actually keep seeing also an edit of description of a wayspot which is actually offensive. I will screen it next time I see it in my pile of vote.
I have gotten the same edit around 8 times. Other reviewers in my area have gotten it dozens of times, sometimes twice in a day. "Provincetown MA, Pilgrim Monument"
I have also seem the Provincetown MA, Pilgrim Monument location edit at least eight times since April 28, 2021.
I got my edit almost ten times, even two times today now. I think this should slowly get checked by Niantic....
I'm experiencing something similar. A single location edit that keeps popping up again and again.
Maybe a bug has caused edits to be submitted multiple times instead of just once?
I have seen this one at a dozen times
I have 3 recurring location edits right now
Here is another
Is there anything being done about this issue?
I had my edit around 15 times now, I think. It's enough...
I've had one edit four times now. First occurrence was on May 3rd and latest was today.
I had some edits a few times, but there is one that I had more that 10 times now..
And I got it again today, so there is screenshot of it.
I reported it as abuse a few times but it's still appears for me again and again. I'm not even surprised when I got it again, it's just becoming really meaningless to report anything while reviewing, as it seems that it doesn't work at all.
I know it might be a honeypot, but if it is one, it's rather bad one.
Can I ask for some other honeypot set, I definetly would like to see some other of them, I know this one too much now ;)
I keep getting one of a white gazebo in New York state. This time around, it was a total of 5 or 6 images.
Thanks for surfacing this, @Euthanasio2-PGO! Our team is investigating this issue at the moment. I would request your patience while we get it resolved.
Similarly, this Point Clare Cemetery Gazebo location edit has been seen over and over again, it's just a basic location edit but it is repeatedly appearing to no result. At the same time, edits in the city nearby are getting an outcome within mere days, so this must be an issue.
@NianticGiffard Thanks for the respond on the thread above in regards to the same issue that's describe here.
Newest development is that despite the requests were moved by Niantic staff according to the thread below, these zombie location edits still stay in the Wayfarer pool with the new coordinates as one of the options
I've seen one over and over and over and over (and over and over) again.
It transformed with my location edit
What if I choose the new one now? Do I get 15 disagreements? That's senseless...

Another edit that I see for third or fourth time now. And there only appears more locations to choose from. Seems like someone is trying to abuse system:
Thank you. I don't see the bugged edits anymore. Tell good job to the team.
I have seen the location edit for Prime Minister Mac Nab three times since it was corrected via the forum. I figured the first instance (May 25) could have been part of the resulotion process, but it appeared a second time on May 31, and again on June 1.
