Submission incorrectly classified as duplicate because of another spot using a wrong picture

Hi all,

My submission of a futuristic building is rejected because a neighboring wayspot, a basketball court, incorrectly uses a picture of that building. I already added a correct picture of the basketball court to that spot, but since it is not the main picture, reviewers still think that my new submission is a duplicate.

What can I do to have the picture of the basketball court changed to a correct one?

    You need to get enough players to up vote the new picture within Pokémon Go. This can only be done by level 37+ players. Tap on the Pokéstop in game, then tap on the arrow in the top right, then on the gallery option in the bottom right, and then tap on the photo you want to up vote and press the thumbs up icon. You may also need to do this in Ingress if it appears as a Portal.

    Once your photo has the most up votes, it should become the main photo for the wayspot.

    You could also go to the photo appeals section of the forum and ask for the incorrect photo to be removed.
