New portals in empty lvl17 cel, no Pokestop.
I've 2 portals in an empty lvl 17 cel which didn't result in a Pokestop.
The first was one I submtited myself and it was stuck in OPR for ages. After contacting Niantic Support, and going trhough their standard answer procedures for days finally the review complete email came through and it was accepted (on 16-11-2019). Until today it hasn't shown up in PoGO. As you can see below on the intel map it is in a empty lvl 17 cel. It is this portal:
The second portal is not my submisison but since the cel the portal is in reached 20 pokestops, due to a location edit review of mine which was completed an accepted 5 days ago, a 3rd gym should show up, but it didn't showed up until now. It is this portal:
. Also here an empty lvl 17 cel.
What should I do to get both in Pokemon Go? The first one, someone already tried to contact Niantic Support butgot stuck in the standard answering machine with replies like: Not every portal/wayspot will become a Pokestop of Gym". Which I know", but in both cases it is not true. Any advice?
There are a few possibilities. Either these are blocked areas in Pokemon Go, meaning nothing there will be ported. Or you were too impatient. Syncing takes time. I don;t remember the sync times of the top of my head but from acceptance to being in Pokemon go can be anywhere from 10 hours (absolute best case) to 34 hours after acceptance. And that is with regular syncs happening, occasionally a sync doesn't happen and that means it could take even longer in those cases. There are subreddits out there that usually report when a sync has failed to happen.
Niantic doesn't aknowledge S2 cells as the way Pokestops are ported from Portals. So Niantic won't consider this a bug, and just say not all Wayspots become Pokestops.
The sync lock happens usually around 12:50am PT and Pokestops/Gyms sync at around 10:50am PT.
After a nomination is approved by the reviewers, there is an additional automated review that determines whether the nomination would be an appropriate fit for each particular Niantic game. Each game has its own set of criteria for this step so some nominations may be accepted into one game but not another or none at all.
There are also certain areas where we don't allow any Wayspots to appear for reasons that are not visible to reviewers.
Not a great answer, but unfortunately I'm not able to share much more than this.
Propably not a bug. Your submission is in the 20 meter radius of a different POI or in a full lvl 17 s2 cell. If you can send me a location and the name of your submission, I could check it for you.
Location (35.018345, 136.89062)
The POI is in Ingress and alone in its lvl 17 s2 cell. So it should come in PoGo aswell. Maybe you have to wait until the next sync.
Your nomination is alone in its s2 cell, it should come into PoGo on the next portal sync. Sometimes, the syncs doesnt work hot they should.
Ja bym prosił o sprawdzenie mojego nowego punktu także zatwierdzonego bo nie ma go ani w INGRESS ani w Pokemon GO.
Nie jest ani portalem ani pokestopem. A został zatwierdz
Pokestop do tej chwili nie powstał...Lokalizacja jest od stopa do stopa 20m. bo mierzyłem ręcznie ale nie wiem czy lokaliacja w grze odzwierciedla odległość
Its close but I would say, it is in the 20 Meter radius of a different POI
Today I was reporting the move of the POI. Kaczka dziwaczka #2 3m below - it will be located farther bordering the physical place because it protrudes a little towards the street
- There is a chance to approve this transfer?
The edit will get reviewed by the communtiy and you will get notificated when a decision is made. Sadly, if your nomination got autodeleted by the system (like in this case), you have to submit it again to get it into the game.
okay then I will nominate this pokestop again;) I hope I will do everything correctly this time
just wait until the edit got accepted^^
The location is 37.495457,126.794075
should be in PoGo already. alone in its s2 cell
