Can anyone help me everything I try to make a stop or portal gets shut down… I know I use great areas public park or camping grounds like yogi bear and such also a water tower but all get declined any pointers would be much appreciated 💪🤘✊👍
No, you shouldn't begging for Pokestops or Portals.
If you're only care for in-game objects then you shouldn't participate in Wayfarer.
Someone comes here to get help and/or learn, mentions reasonable candidates and this is what you offer as a welcome? Great...
Also, bringing things to gamemaps is a perfectly acceptable reason/motive to participate. I'd dare to claim that it's the most common as well.
Without seeing your nominations it's hatd to give exact advice. Some links
Basic nomination tips video (by Pokesaxi).
For polishing your nominations, wordy presentation by Hosette.
There's also a nomination improvement subforum here if you're willing to show some of your old nominations for feedback.
Show us some of the nominations in full that got rejected - photo, supporting photo and text. One nomination per thread works out best for discussion purposes. Post in the "Nomination improvement" section. Rejection reasons can be very specific.
Very carefully read everything in all three sets of criteria so that you have a good understanding of what is and isn't eligible. I review a lot, and I also see lots of "Why did this get rejected?" posts on various forums. It's surprising how often the much of the stuff I review is completely ineligible, and how often the people complaining about rejections have submitted something that is ineligible. Don't use the things you see in games right now as a guideline for eligibility... read the rules. Twice.
@Kellerrys-ING already linked to my "How to submit things that get accepted" essay, but here's the TL;dr: Make an effort to make your submissions look good to reviewers, and also to help reviewers understand what it is and why it's valuable. Something like a set of tennis courts shouldn't need much more than a good photo, title, description, and to confirm that reviewers can find it in street or satellite view. For something like a local restaurant that's special you're going to have to work harder to explain to reviewers why it's not just another generic restaurant.
If you are submitting things that are no-brainer nominations in areas like parks, there's a good chance that they are in a cell that's already occupied and therefore won't get made into a pokestop, or they're within 20m of another waypoint and will not appear in game. Do you play Ingress as well as PoGo? I started playing Ingress (and got to meet @Hosette-ING) in part so I could have a little more visibility into the map (but then discovered it was fun on its own, should hit level 15 today!). I was shocked how many of the things I was nominating in Pogo were already portals but not pokestops. Ingress also lets you see how many meters away from other portals you are.
I think posting the nominations for feedback as suggested by @sogNinjaman-ING and @Kellerrys-ING is a great idea. If you used the campground entrance sign people might have rejected that as not meeting criteria, but if you picked something like a communal gathering area or art feature within the campground, that would be a better nomination. Water towers can be tricky if they have a fence or no path leading to them (no pedestrian access). Even looking through other posts in that that sub is a great way to learn about how to improve your nominations.
