Stuck with "Detected anomalies"

I just recently started reviewing and when I encountered the "detected anomalies" screen I was disheartened as I have no idea what I did wrong, but willing to review more I came back later and the message was still the same, now it's few days later and it still says "wait 24h", what's wrong?

  • Hi @MajkiGorski-PGO!

    If the system detects anomalies in your review pattern, it may impose a cool-down. This cool-down is of different types. Here are a few tips to help you review more effectively and maintain/improve your performance rating:

    - Follow the Wayspot criteria and guidelines while reviewing nominations, we recommend keeping the eligible and ineligible criteria pages open in a different browser tab for easy access. And check all the Wayspot guidelines like title, description, photo and content before reviewing

    - Take your time and review each segment on its own merit. Read this article for tips on how to review each section: https://wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/help#reviewing-a-wayspot-nomination

    - Avoid using third-party tools/plugins or depending on others to decide how you vote on a nomination.

    I have the same issue. I have been active voter since this was called Operation Portal Recon and I have never had such problems like recently. 5-10 votes I get 2h cooldown due to anomalies. But what anomalies?! I have been voting like this since forever and all my judgements are to the rules, it was fine all that time till recently. I do not get it, Wayfarer gives me not even a single hint what do I do and what to change. This just drives me nuts, I don't want to vote anymore, I just feel hopeless...

    Any advices Niantic?
