And you wonder why your rating is getting lower?
You claim that you have passed the second test with good grades, but Niantic doesn't tell anything about the grade of your answers to the test, either you pass or you fail.
Well, as all my nominations keep getting rejected, i am thinking, why am i soo generous, while others just hit the reject button for the things that i find valuable enough? But i'll try to give more 3*. And for the pictures, i do not reject them, only if they are really bad, but i write in the comments that the picture could be better. But hey, who reads those comments anyway?
There’s definitely a negative feedback loop at play in wayfarer. When people’s nominations get rejected, they tend to rate others more harshly. Let’s try to break free of that thinking. When rating, I tend to ask myself “would I have nominated that?”
Perhaps as this is not really about the community guidelines @Ladyfoil-PGO you could start a new discussion as the points you raise are important especially about use of the star rating.
Perhaps you could post one of yours that got rejected and we could give some feedback. You could also post one you considered 2 or 3 stars. In each case post the main pic, description and supporting pic and info.
It would be good to get you moving up the ratings.

I'm super new and was just reading through the comments you've all posted and it's everything I'm looking to learn about to make a better contribution as a wayfarer. I'm hoping if this conversation makes it's way to it's own discussion post that I can find it and I'm thinking that since we are all at different levels of understanding that there we would be able to iron out details that would help new, blossoming and seasoned reviewers to understand that even though we may seek different kinds of stops due to our varying passions and the surrounding we find ourselves in that we all have a better understanding of how to deliver consistent and concise quality contributions.
Very Good! I am so excited to be a part of Wayfarer Community.
Hola, hoy me han rechazado una propuesta de un buzón de correos que hay en una plaza de mi pueblo, un buzón que lleva puesto 'toda la vida' como quien dice en la plaza, el motivo del rechazo ha sido que es un elemento temporal, no entiendo en qué se basan para rechazarlo, cuando no es cierto, estoy muy desmotivada con la propuesta de pokeparadas ya que me las rechazan todas sin ningún criterio real.
Mailboxes typically aren’t eligible. It doesn’t matter if it’s been there all your life or not. That has no bearing on it’s eligibility
I find it hilarious that you are confused why your rating is so low (and sinking) yet you refuse to use the numbers that are available to you. 5 isn't some magic score that should be reserved for a Disney World nomination with a photo taken by Anne Geddes. It's for things that fully meet Niantic's core values of Explore, Exercise, or Be Social. That's it. You're being way too judgmental and it shows in your rating. Try loosening up and your rating will improve. The point is not to be a gatekeeper. The point is to give people places to play. That "generic" looking gazebo may not be special to you, but it is the best spot in that community!
Part of the original discussion concerned the different games and submissions. I only have pogo, so I can't check if a POI is approved and in other games. I recently nominated a mural and it was approved but didn't show in Pogo. The next, and any other pogo player who sees the mural will try to nominate it. I think this duplication clogs the system.
You can actually.
When nominating, you can see what’s nearby and if a POI is used for other games it’ll appear as an orange Wayfarer pin.
Well, I send you greetings from Mexico.
Greeting from Holland.
is "the Wall" already a wayspot
I think people need care more I have dixlexa ansbi spell wrong .. Iam bad learning languages and people shouldnjot judge but they do issue is people they choose to be mean .. why not just accept lol and let people have stops its just a misspell .. Let people be people words are just words
I understand about mean words but not about misspelling we need to have reword instead of people rejecting .. There danish people also bwinf racial with words if not danish they reject it . can we have just English for games please maybe people need care more and stop thinking everyone is better that everyone else we all humans
Maybe not better, maybe just confused.
Different languages hard. Different spelling hard.
When reviewer gets confused, reviewer fast fails so reviewer gets to next review quicker.
Best advise, take more time, spell check, don't confuse reviewer.
Oh believe me, my spelling is correct & complete descriptions are given. I get very detailed with my descriptions (might be the problem), even down to the year it was built. I say this because I've lived in these areas 35+ years. (So I've got all the info for each stop submitted to better help the community 🙂)
Next year, we look forward to more relaxed eligibility criteria and more fun to play.
When did players have to start taking this test because I get tons of postcards from places, things not allowed and I have screenshots. Stuff like a slide in a playground, a rock, a single swing, a door or floor with a number on it, an amateur painting on a cement wall. A do not enter sign and numerous other stupid things. Hard to pass a test when we see all of this So Called Non Eligible stuff every day all day while playing
A park might have as a photo a single element of it because that way is easier to take a photo without people in it, so don't judge a Wayspot just by its photo.
Don't judge a Wayspot by it's photo ... especially the duplicate Basketball Courts that have both a photo and and a lack of a photo...
and most likely 50ft apart.
50ft? Surely just one S2 cell apart
Maybe but at level 12 though.
We should have a moderation team, also in Spanish. I've seen some.. reportable things here (i'm lvl 37, so i cannot report them)
So sorry if this is wrong place for the below issue, i am trying to report to some admins from Niantic, with no luck, so maybe you could help me?
I am from Poland and leave in Gdańsk. Gdańsk is one of the most known Polish cities for people from abroad, therefore there are a lot of visitors. There are a lot of students, people who come to Gdańsk for work etc.
I am currently leaving in Old Town in Gdansk which is the one of the most historic places in Gdańsk, hence this is a hot place for walks, for visitors, for parties etc.
I have noticed that one player is changing pokestop titles from the last month in whole Old Town. The issue is these names are incorrect. I and i believe (based on observation) at leat one other player are trying to change these title to correct names.
The worst part is that most of my nominations with correct names (old correct names!) - with the names that match to Google Maps, to Wikipedia and to polish language or at least english, are being rejected. The ridicoulus part is that nominations with incorrect names are being accepted.
This person who is forcing incorrect titles in pokestopes is using Kashubian language. Kashubia is a cultural region Poland (small part), hence the Kashubian language is the regional language only. Official language in Poland is polish only, therefore i do not think that these pokestops should have names with this regional language. It is misleading for other Polish people and also for visitors. Pokestops in Old Town are very interesting and full of history but is diffcult to understand and check in google for more information if they have names with incorret language.
To add - population of Kashubian people is 240k in which population of Kashubian who leave in Gdańsk is 30k only, where population of Gdańsk is 0.5million, Polish population is 37millions. I do not think that any polish people are interested in Kashubian language. More over Polish people do not have to know Kashubian languange, where Kashubian must know polich language.
This sitatution also proves that this system of nominations is not working properly. People can add incorrect names, descpritions, photos etc., dupe pokestops, because people who verify these notifications are not checking them correctly.
If the pokestop has verified, correct name, maybe there is not need to have this Edit title option? Or there should be additional checks why does someone want to change the current title and what is the issue? Personally i think there should be options like "Report invalid name/photo/location/etc. with mandatory justification and proposal", and these reports should go through second level of verification if any exists.
Could you please change your formation test Niantic? I found it a bit too hard, and couldn't succeed in from now
You know you get unlimited attempts and can do it every 15 minutes now? Not really much point to the test.
It can't be that posts Pokestop submissions are not approved although it is according to the guidelines there are some who don't understand hope am in right category
How do you mean? Was your nomination not accepted? What did you nominate?
You may be better making a new post here - https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/categories/nomination-improvement-advice
