Duplicate Photo Appeal

WayfarerMSE-PGOWayfarerMSE-PGO Posts: 1,568 ✭✭✭✭✭

If a wayspot was rejected as a duplicate and that decision is challenged by filing an appeal - and that appeal is granted, the photo incorrectly added by the first duplicate still remains on the incorrect wayspot. This shouldn't be the case and the incorrect photo should be removed. Because otherwise too much mischief can be done with 2 identical photos on different wayspots!

    Great point.

    Currently, people (who care enough) can manually ask the help bot for each one - then someone with Niantic might manually remove each one. But that's manually intensive, and won't affect most reversed duplicates, because most people won't bother.

    But I don't think Niantic has the developer time to code it to happen automatically. And I don't think they care to that level of detail. The focus is more: Wayspot yes/no.
