Portal Nomination Disappeared from Nomination List

I submitted 4 portal nominations on 9-11, but now only three of them appear on my nomination list, as you can see in my screenshot. The missing one appeared in the nomination list previously, but now it is gone. I am also including a screenshot of the confirmation email for the missing portal. Why is it missing? Is it gone, or is it still in queue/voting, just not being displayed?

    When nominations disappear it means they have been taken from the normal flow of community review to be reviewed by Niantic staff.

    You should get a decision within a few days, and at that point the nomination will return to your list in Wayfarer.

    Why would Niantic do this? Is there any source on this happening previously?

    It’s a new bug sorry feature 😛 that came with the new version introduced at end of July. That this is the cause has been confirmed in here in a post several weeks ago it is not clear if it is considered a bug to be fixed.

    Niantic have had to review a certain proportion of nominations as a quality control check as a result of the infamous PRP ruling.

    Previously no one seemed to be aware of this happening, and for those with a short list of unresolved nominations it has become very obvious. The other thing that stands out is that these are very quickly resolved.

    There are suspicions that this is also linked to the approved POI not appearing in Ingress and possibly other games.

    None of the above has been communicated to the whole wayfarer community. 🤷‍♀️

    It is such an obvious thing to do and would prevent a constant flow of confused wayfarers coming here to try and find out why.
