[SUGGESTION] Aproved Appeal that was Upgraded should return the Upgrade

We all know that a lot of community rejections are ****. So it is very annoying when you upgrade an 5* nobrainer and it gets rejected. So you appeal it.

When such a candidate gets now approved by NIA the wasted upgrade should be returned to the user to instantly use it again.

It is already time consuming enough to get the upgrades especially as there are no events or other short time activities to increase them. And the appeal process also takes way to much time, so everything that speeds up thins should be considered a win.

    That's not how Upgrades work.

    I know that they dont work that way. But it would be an improvement.

    You would not need that if appeals had guaranteed processing time, like 2 weeks. Nominate, upgrade to speed up the review, (rejected), appeal, still get it faster with the help of upgrade. That's why upgrade is consumed.

    The real problem here is slow appeals - niantic decided to first process appeals logged when people could appeal daily. If instead they focused on processing one appeal per month for every player, and handled the extra backlog in the remaining time - this question would not appear.

    This is not so much about the appeal bit about upgrades. Upgrades are only used to speed up. So you usually apply it to a guaranteed approval. Sadly it still gets rejected with nonsens reasons. So you appeal it. When this appeal now gets approved it should only be fair to get the upgrade back. Its already hard enough to get them (or mostly time consuming). With my nominations i would need about 500 upgrades to empty my queue

    An upgrade has one purpose - to make your nomination get through the system and reach a resolution more quickly, whether that be an acceptance or a rejection. Given that it has already provided this functionality (and thus it was not wasted), why should it be returned for nominations that are rejected but then successfully appealed? Your argument makes no sense because you're saying an upgrade was wasted despite the fact it did exactly what it was meant to do.
