Two of my nominations were accepted a month ago but have not shown up in the game yet. Does anyone know why this has happened? All of my other nominations were put in the game within 24 hours of approval.
Hello and welcome @MeggyD1999-PGO
This is the likely explanation.
Although the impression you are given when you submit something is that you are submitting to be a pokestop the reality is that you are submitting something with the potential to be a pokestop.
Your approved nomination is accepted not into Pokémon Go, but into the Lightship database - this holds all approved wayspots and is separate from all Niantic games.
That is the end point of wayfarer, and what happens next is not related to wayfarer.
Each game sets its own rules as to what it will take from Lightship to use in that particular game.
For Pokémon Go the rules revolve around the use of some mapping software commonly referred to as S2 cells it breaks down the surface into smaller and smaller cells - each size is referred to as level and a number.
Google: S2 cells and Pokémon Go - Pokémongohub has a very good explanation.
The key is that in Pokémon Go only accepts 1 wayspot in each Level 17 cell, so if there is already a pokestop or gym in the game, in that cell, yours will not be selected to enter Pokémon Go.
It is disappoint and frustrating but this is nearly always the reason why a wayspot does not translate into a pokestop.
if you provide the name of the stops and their locations we can check.
You might have to a bit more specific, post the coordinates, if you want people to check.
I was able to find Marble Memorial Bench. It's in the same level 17 S2 cell as Turtle Statue, so that's why you can't see it in Pokémon Go. It is in Ingress though, which you will be able to see using this link if you have an Ingress account:
I haven't looked for Little Free Library yet.
Is this enough for you or do you need exact location? @Elijustrying-ING
Post the coordinates otherwise you are asking someone to aimlessly wander around Hainesport on the map looking for a needle in a haystack.
99.9999999999999999% of the time if a Wayspot doesn't show on Go it's because of the cell rules.
You can find out how they work by searching for the terms that have already been posted above.
At least give a street name or something.
