I really need Niantic to clarify something. I had two submissions approved but they didn't manifest in the game. Niantic claims that the reason could be that the stops are too close to other stops.
Then I go around town and see areas where gyms are stacked onto of each other along with stops or this set where the gyms are super close.
So I am needing Niantic to give me explanation for this because it angers me, that I would put in the time and effort to create a stop, and effort to have it voted on.
