More appeals please

Starting to get lots of things rejected for silly reasons again the last 2 or 3 weeks. More things are badly rejected than can be appealed.

At this rate 3 or 4 appeals a week is needed.

Or please sort out why or who is badly rejecting submissions faster

(Not getting in to a discussion about the individual submissions, they are 100% badly rejected)

    Currently there is still a major backlog of appeals to be processed. I dont seen them increasing the appeal rate until a major chunk of that backlog is processed.

    *D.T. voice* : "My nominations were SO GOOD... so good... I can't even show you them. Sad." XD

    I don't disagree with RE, appeals can be used for incentivize. I'm perfectly fine with the 1/month because I nominate less than 30 things a month, but I can see how people here which nominate more can need more appeals.

    Why not another appeal for each 100 nomination or 1000 reviews for example? With the condition of Great rating to block bots and bad nominators.

    Nominations are so good, they would make others weep at how inferior theirs are lol ;D

    Im 5 appeals with 5 wins at the moment because I know everything I appeal is 100% a good POI. I am worried about the current one in voting by Niantic at the moment though as it's easy to assume this LFL is on someones drive as the road changes to a Cobble stone road but it is a public road/walkway up to a church. So Niantic may actually get this one wrong!

    The one above is pretty much the only rejection I can understand voters getting wrong, the rest are just plain bad rejections.

    I would rather they sorted out the reason for bad rejections quicker so appeals were needed less but amount of appeals based on how many you submit makes sense.

    Just like every other useful feature, it would get abused by people submitting the floor 100 times to get another appeal quicker so unless Niantic can get a grip with bot voting and voting Kabals for agreements/upgrades, it would need to be implemented carefully.
