I accidentally nominated a private basketball court - it was approved. How do I fix this?

Over a year ago I nominated a basketball court. I had it in my head that it was the management office of the neighborhood but it’s not. It was approved unfortunately but I can’t report it as it’s only in Ingress.

If you check Maps, you can see it’s clearly behind that house. It should NEVER have been approved. Turns out, that never was an office. It’s just a home. I used the Google doc to report it but there wasn’t really an option to check that was accurate.
As I said, I can’t report it in GO because it’s in Ingress. Do I have to be a certain level in Ingress to report it? I guess I can make an account just for that but I thought you have to be level 12 to nominate or edit. That’s just what I was told.
You can report it via Wayfarer Chat on Help on Wayfarer.
Hopefully that works. I do not know how they reply as this chat feature doesn’t work like in-game chat.
Apparently a level 1 can report it after all. Well, that’s handy I guess.
you could download ingress and you should still be able to report it
If you're the one who nominated it, even if you're the one who reports it as invalid, you will be the one to receive the punishment.
Removing a waypoint is not connected to the nominator in any way. Years could have passed, and the end environment changed. Plus, that would be a lot of extra code (work)that is just not going to happen on this product) - for very little gain.
This isn't a legitimate nomination that no longer exists. But go ahead and report it if you don't believe me.
I reported it as private property from Ingress. I also used Wayfarer chat to report it that way. Said I thought it was management office with recreation out back. But if people properly reviewed, they’d have realized it wasn’t and rejected. They did not. I only nominated and by the time I caught it, it wasn’t withdrawalable. Doesn’t matter.
That's not true. If you look at the removal section, they only "take action" against people who submitted fakes. (Even then, the "action" seems to be pretty useless, so I wouldn't worry about it if they do make a mistake and "take action".)
It was removed via ingress report.
