New Reviewer

1) I have provided a screenshot of my profile. Does anyone know what the underlined means? ("Nominations Accepted" / "Nominations Rejected") Is it referring to the reviews that I've done on other people's nominations or is it referring to the reviews that my own nominations have received?

2) Is there any way to prioritize your immediate vicinity? I put in my hometown where I am currently but we are pretty rural and have only a handful of pokestops in my town. I am trying/hoping to improve my area but when I am doing reviews, I'm getting locations that are several hours away. Is there a way to narrow the scope to my county or something?

3) How many reviews does your nomination need in order to become a PokeStop?

4) What does "in queue" mean?

    1) this is how many nominations you reviewed that ultimately became either accepted or rejected

    2) your review area consists of a large radius around your play area, as well as bonus location and hometown

    3) Niantic won’t tell us how many reviews it takes for an acceptance or denial

    4) in queue means “in line” or “in waiting” to go into voting. Only a certain number of nominations in an area can be in voting at once

    Also, be aware that all accepted nominations do not always become pokestops, based on a cell system. Google S2 cells and Pokémon go before submitting nominations.

    Summarizing the above: Niantic is really bad at communication.
