Niantic Should Keep Its Promise of "reviewing past rejections starting with the Generic Business"
Niantic made this promise many times. Here's one: https://wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/new/help/niantic-wayfarer-november-2020-ama
With the updated criteria, there was a promise to rereview previously rejected nominations that may meet the updated requirements. How will that work?
While this is a big effort, we are already working on reviewing past rejections starting with the Generic Business category. Keep an eye on the forum for updates on other efforts related to this initiative.
Niantic should keep their promise, and review "generic business" rejections first, then other rejections from before the criteria update. (No matter where that nomination is - even near a big city. It was already slow-tracked once.)
