rejection of unreasonable or incorrect reasons
Recently, there have been a number of rejections in my region for unreasonable reasons. For example, my nomination in university was denied by "K-12". The rejection reason “K-12 “is used for under school (preschool, primary/elementary, secondary/high school), child care/daycare center, rehabilitation center, safety shelter, not for use within university facilities. Also, my nomination was clearly accessible on foot but this nomination was rejected by “The real-world location of the nomination could not be confirmed to have an acceptable pedestrian pathway leading up to it.”. I suspect that there is a lot of miscellaneous review or abuse in my area. I would like Niantic to investigate this issue or abuse.
Also, I have interested in November AMA's
What is being done to curb incorrect rejections for nominations that meet all of the criteria? Will there be a way to escalate incorrect rejections directly to the Niantic team for re-review?
Firstly, we are in the midst of redesigning the nomination review process to make the review process smoother for reviewers and also to cut down on these incorrect rejections. Also, on the horizon, although a bit further out, is adding appeals directly into Wayfarer. With regard to escalating incorrect rejections directly to Niantic, this is something that we’re thinking through. It’s a bit complex as we don’t want to enable correct rejections to be escalated so it’s still a work in progress.
Niantic, how much progress has been made on this?
