Rejection feedback and action


I received a rejection nomination with the following reason, "Mismatched Location Title or Description".


Is the reason because I used Corbeau Community Clean Team (to try being creative) instead of the sign's generic Corbeau Neighborhood?


Can a Niantic member investigate and confirm this nomination's validity, make the required revisions, then approve?


Will there be an option in the future for reviewers to be able to edit text then approve the nomination? Pokestops in-game have a variety of text and photo edit options. Seems like this should also be available during the reviewing process.

    Could I please have someone reach out to me regarding rejection feedback comments so I can have my nomination reviewed/revised/approved?

    I know that you're gonna disagree with me, but I don't think that your supplementary info is really acurate because I don't see how this sign meets Wayfarer Criteria.

    This is a metal sign "welcome to our neighbourhood", but even far more elaborated welcome signs are rejected on a daily basis. As a general rule, neighbourhood signs don't meet Wayfarer Criteria, and this is a really basic and simple metal sign.

    These are the signs made by the city under the volunteer program Adopt-A-Street. Community residents apply tocthe program. Successful applicants are in charge of regularly checking the street to keep the area clean by picking up litter.

    Adopt-A-Street signs throughout the city have been approved.

    This is not a welcome to the neighborhood sign.

    This area specifically has a park, trail, and sensitive habitat river to look after.

    Those would all likely be eligible submissions (signs will actually help you in those cases), but I cannot see how the initial signage you attempted to submit would meet any of the three eligibility criteria (a great place to exercise, a great place to socialise, or promotes exploration).

    Adopt-A-Street signs throughout the city have been approved.

    Something already existing in the database doesn't necessarily mean it meets current criteria. It may have been accepted under an older version of the criteria, or reviewers may have made a mistake accepting something that shouldn't be accepted. In some cases there could even be deliberate abuse in play, forcing through ineligible nominations.

    Can a Niantic member investigate and confirm this nomination's validity, make the required revisions, then approve?

    That's not how this works. You either resubmit your nomination (if you think you can prove this meets one of the eligibility criteria I mentioned above, then you should definitely explain why when you resubmit), give up on it (what I would personally do if this was my nomination), or use the appeal button that appears near to the rejection reasons on your nomination. Your appeal button is missing which means you've used an appeal on a different nomination within the past 30 days, and you'll need to wait until 30 days have passed from when you submitted your previous appeal in order to be able to submit another one.

    This should have been approved, hopefully will be with resubmitting.

    Try take lots of high resolution photos of the proposed wayspot with location on and submit the best one. It might help if the supporting photo shows more of the surrounding area. Please do not bother upgrading, seems more likely the locals will be familiar with the area and know it is worthy.

    I see there is a website for this program stating:

    "The City of Port Moody's Adopt a Street program helps to keep our sidewalks, bike paths, and walkways free of litter. We welcome residents and organizations like schools, churches, local non-profits, and businesses to participate in the program. View the Adopt a Street Program Guide at https://www.portmoody.ca/en/city-services/resources/Documents/Adopt-a-Street-Guide.pdf for more information."

    It might help to add this in additional info through your contributions after submitting. Good luck!

    Park, trail - those should meet criteria as "great places to explore". In turn, "adopt a street" is generic sign installed by local authorities, it is not great place to explore, can't see how it would meet criteria.

    Also, it is not really "permanent", the program guide requires "at least a year" commitment, and maybe participants will go for more, but who knows, it's still a running program which has a term.
