Disappearing Nomination but appears as Accepted

I had three nominations in my local area suddenly get accepted within 1-2 weeks of each other. Yay!

About a month later all of the stops disappeared, except for the Gym in the same area. These poke stops still appear as Accepted in my Contribution Management filter and have not been updated to show any status, such as Rejected.

I recently switched from an iPhone 8s and now have an iPhone XR and have logged in and out multiple times and have the fully updated version of the Pokemon Go app.

I do not have screenshots as this is my first time reporting a Bug and I just found out about this forum. I will try to update with images when I can.

    If a nomination is removed, its status on Wayfarer isn't changed. That nomination was still accepted and it will always display that this is the outcome for this particular nomination.

    As for why they've disappeared from the database, they were likely reported for meeting one of the removal criteria, and Niantic accepted the reports and removed them from the database.

    The removal criteria are:

    • No pedestrian access (or unsafe access)
    • Obstructs emergency services
    • Nomination is on private residential property
    • Nomination is on school (K-12) property
    • Object does not exist or has been permanently removed
    • Object is a duplicate of an existing wayspot.

    If you think they were unfairly removed, you can appeal the decision here:

    When you go to make a post in that section of the forum, you'll be asked to follow the template given to you at the top of the page. When uploading screenshots, I suggest attaching them to your post using the paperclip icon.

    Then either someone reported them, or property owner/manager of the location has requested to geoblock that location to prevent those appearing in Pokemon GO. Removed Pokestops won't affect status of your accepted Wayspots in Wayfarer page.

    What is the location of the removed Pokestops?
