Pokéstop / wayspot disappeared at the blink of an eye
I just want to know why I got a pokestop wiped out for apparently no reason. When I submitted its nomination to Wayfarer, after a month or so it was voted and accepted by the community, so wasn't it meant to be a valid one?
Yesterday, my nomination showed up both in Ingress and Pokémon Go, but didn't take more than a couple of hours for it to get disappeared, so I suspect it could have been due to an AR Scan (which I've read theories about), or even one toxic player reporting it with multiple accounts.
It's not the first time it happens in different points of my town. In fact, there are other players who are very outraged because they see every single of their nominations erased right after being accepted and appeared. However, this time it felt extremely weird because it was only available for very short time. Thus I give no credit anymore to the general idea that there's someone in Niantic revising if a report is true or just sent to bother the rest of players.
I'm getting increasingly tired of this issue, so I don't think it's worth requesting wayspots/pokestops anymore. Especially because I've always tried to be honest and stick to the criteria, which Wayfarer is supposed to be there for. These criteria seem like an 'official' way of giving an answer to the players who wonder how the whole process works, but I keep seeing it opaque, as it is, for instance the relationship between Ingress and Pokémon Go, or the 'jail system' which is used to determine the new wayspots; as it is how they really deal with fake GPS accounts, multi-accounts taking over every gym and so on...
I know it's easier to keep playing Pokemon Go as I've been since 2016: with no worries about wayspots etc. Letting some 'experts' do the hard work behind it. But come on, Niantic. Wayfarer is for general people, not for experts...
Excuse my essay, but I'm annoyed.
