Submitting Pokestops too close to older ones


I submitted 3 pokéstops that were accepted (2 of them last week), but they never got added to the Pokémon Go Map. I believe it is because they might be too close to the other points already in the park. Is there any way to edit the pokestops once submitted and maybe position them differently (but still accurately) so that they all can be applied on the map? Or should I suggest a location edit on previous ones so that they all can fit?

    If the POIs are misplaced, correct them. If they are already at the correct location, a location edit would be abuse since you are trying to get an advantage with it.

    If your submitted POI got autodeleted by the system, you have to resubmit it. A different location might help, but only as long as the location is still reflecting the real location of the submitted object.

    HI @LukeAllStars-PGO

    Thanks for the info. I don't think my nominations have been autodeleted (?) because they are marked as accepted but still do not show... kind of like if they were pending. How would I know?

    Would resubmitting the same stops still go through or would it be flagged for duplicates?

    I'm just trying to figure out how to make them valid and all show up in the park, without abusing the system. Problem is everything is kind of close together, but I think by adjusting either old pokestops (or resubmitting new ones) a few meters away that would still be accurate.

    What would you do in my situation?

    Submit the Waypoints in the correct place - simple. Have a look at the current Ingress Portal placement before you do to see if you might be wqasting your time if there are already Waypoints live in game. Either use the Ingress intell map or give us a location we can check for you.

    There are stops that do not appear in PoGo due to proximity to others, possibly if you look at the Ingress map they do appear (Unless they are very close together)
