nominations stuck on same day in voting/in queue

when submitting 2 poi the same day, 1 goes into voting and the other stays in queue. I got this on 3 different dates: 22-07-2022, 05-01-2022, 24-11-2020

Also: please fix the system because waiting times +2 year 'in voting' is insane. Suggestions were made in the past.

    Not only is this not a bug, it's intended behavior, but you've also posted it in the wrong section entirely. If you for whatever reason believe this intended behavior to be ab bug you should probably repost in the "Bug Report" section making sure to follow the format.

    You are correct, wrong section because of error. But why do you think this is not a bug? You tell me that nobody can nominate 2 poi on the same day? If that is correct the system is even more broken...

    You can nominate 2 poi on the same day. They just don't both go into voting on the same day. Otherwise someone could submit 40 things in one day and everyone else in that area would have to wait for all 40 to clear voting before they had their own submissions voted on. Niantic want 40 people to have 1 submission in voting rather than 1 person have 40 submissions in voting.

    Wayspots are not really in a queue. Meaning: they are not processed first-in, first-out.

    Niantic uses a random number generator to move them to voting - BUT (don't be surprised...) it's not really random either. Nominations within 20 miles of a big city are slow-tracked. Nominations in sparse areas like along the coast (so a huge area to one side has no wayspots) are fast-tracked. Nominations in a slow-tracked area take months or years. Nominations in a fast-tracked area take days or weeks.

    What you can do is review other people's nominations. This clears out things that must be resolved before yours. And, for every 100 agreements (160-200 reviews), you can upgrade one of yours. If you nominate 40, it'll take 80 hours or so, to review enough to upgrade them all.
