Title of the Wayspot: מרכז ויצו גבעתיים
Location: 32.071124, 34.817740 (approx.)
Yup. Still there.
Thanks for the appeal, SiIverLyra-PGO! We have taken another look but stand by our decision to retire this Wayspot.
How come? It's a community center for women.
Bump, @NianticGiffard/@NianticVK. Can I have clarification on the logic behind this?
I would suggest reaching out to our removals team for more information: https://www.pokemongolive.com/report-location/
Thanks for the suggestion - I've contacted the team with the details and this is the response I got:
There are very strict removal criteria. Very strict. So strict that even things objects that were ineligible in the first place would not get removed as long as they don't meet removal criteria.
Yet a community center for women, operated by WIZO, that's been standing for over 20 years, hosting events and lectures and community evenings and courses and offers legal help for women in need and countless other things - inexplicably meets some invisible removal criteria that nobody in Niantic can explain.
How does this removal serve Niantic's and Wayfarer's mission statement of compiling a map of real life location where people can explore and socialize? Surely the secret criteria that makes community centers ineligible should be widely known so submitters can avoid it, seeing as those are commonly nominated POIs?
@NianticGiffard Assuming this center is also considered sensitive, can I know why? There are no domestic violence therapy services offered here.
