Wayspot corrections rejected.

A local business has changed 3 or 4 times since the Wayspot was created. I was just wanting to update it to the current business there. So I submitted a name change and a new picture. And it was rejected? How can someone reject a name change to a business that hasn't been there in over 5 years? To make matters worse, when I go to the Contribution Management page, it does not show any of my contributions.

Thank you for your Wayspot Photo submission on Dec 19, 2022.

    Niantic are inconsistent with how they want us to approach things like this.

    In some cases they tell us to submit new photos and update the title and description, such as when a mural is painted over with a different mural.

    In other cases they expect us to report the current wayspot as no longer existing, and then submit a new wayspot for the replacement. This is the course of action you should probably be taking with this particular wayspot.
