It’s been over 48 hours. But my nominations and contribution is not showing in Pokémon Go. Did I do something wrong?
Yes. You didn’t read the email.
Remember that not all accepted nominations will appear in all Niantic games (and may take up to 48 hours to appear)
For Pokémon GO, you only get one PokéStop per level 17 S2 cell (you can find info on this elsewhere), so if there was a nearby PokéStop already you won’t get it live in that game. It’s probably live on Ingress and maybe other games so you can’t re-nominate it as it’s already in the Lightship system.
i looked it up and it's not in ingress either... it should be in its own cell for pokemon go as well. i'm not sure why it isn't showing up in either game :/
Could be that the park owners have asked for a block on any new Wayspots.
that is definitely a possibility. while i've heard of churches and businesses removing or banning wayspots, i wonder why a public park wouldn't want new wayspots. i'm sure there are reasons, but it sounds uncommon.
I had confirmation from the Pokémon GO support team previously that a local zoo had a geoblock on it.
The Ingress & Pokémon GO maps were very different, even with the cells.
I work for the Park Dept so I don’t think there would be a block. I would’ve be the one to put the block on it. I’ve have four other Poke’ stops accepted and they show. The main problem at this park is that people drive up in their cars to get the gifts and stuff but don’t walk the trails. So I’ve been adding stops on the trails hoping people will explore the trails. There’s 28 acres of trails in that park. I hope I can make this a great Pokémon park.
is the wayspot supposed to be somewhere in the photo i posted? just checking.
and do you have the acceptance email? this may need to be addressed by niantic unless i'm missing something obvious.
Actually during the inital wave of PoGo lt was more common than you'd think.
Niantic got a lot of bad press about groups of people rocking up to parks, some relatively small, which just couldn't cope with the footfall and the grass areas were ruined plus rubbish from lazy players littering the ground.
Some areas still don't like people "playing games / being on their phone" when they should be enjoying the park / green spaces.
Some however actively embrace it, in contrast to @PkmnTrainerJ-ING the zoo near me have been known to put up signs, which paraphrasing, go " while enjoying fantasy animals also have a look at the real ones we have here"
All depends on the mindset of the people involved, as well as practical considerations
NianticGiffard recently commented on such a block, if that helps @King67David-PGO
