Incorrect Wayspot Appeal Decision - part 2

  • Wayspot Title: Biểu tượng Highland Coffee
  • Location : 10.900223054483575, 106.78032285858984
  • City: Binh Duong
  • Country: Viet Nam
  • Screenshot of the Rejection Email: None
  • Additional Information: Reason for refusal: Business chain

This is a famous cafe chain in Vietnam and it even exists in other cities around the world. Formally, I refused for the right reason and so did the community. But somehow, this nomination passed the absurd appeal. And here is the Link as well as the business chain network covering each province:
Select “Quán Cà Phê” and you will see something like this:

  • Accessible (you can reach anywhere, it’s obvious)
  • Not a place for sports
  • Not a place to explore (because this nomination is nothing special and not valid)

Please reconsider this nomination because this is a business chain and it was rejected according to Niantic criteria

@NianticAaron can you check this nomiation

@RealityArea It looks like we haven’t gotten to this request yet or it hasn’t been submitted through in-game. At this time, we only take appeals to overturn decisions we’ve already made.

These are nominations that were rejected during Review in Vietnam. And these are false and invalid nominations. Their creators appealed and Niantic Staff accepted the false appeal. Obviously, this is a false appeal, not something I have to report in the game. There are no categories to choose from in the Report sections in the game, so I just posted it here to review these nominations like the Bank in the previous article because that was the wrong decision from Niantic staff

This is a nomination that was rejected during review. And the player appealed this nomination and it was accepted.
In terms of appearance and reality, it is wrong because this is a cafe with a large chain in Vietnam and we have a rejection category during review called General Business.
It is not possible to ask the author to report in the game because there is no report category in the game.
The mistake was made by the moderator who appealed incorrectly, so please reconsider this article. @NianticAtlas @NianticAaron


This is definitely a rejected nomination because Highlands is a famous cafe chain in Vietnam with more than hundreds of systems nationwide. It is completely invalid because I rejected this nomination, as did the community, here the commenters are sure to share the same opinion. Please remove this nomination because it was falsely appealed


There are 3 issues clarified:

  • When the Vietnamese community sees nominations with strings, they refuse because this is the basic law based on Wayfayer criteria
  • After 2 to 3 days this nomination appears again after being rejected, it is guaranteed to be due to an appeal. And the person who appealed the wrong nomination must be punished because this was not a reasonable nomination and yet tried to appeal.
  • Finally, you cannot ask players to click report in the game because there is no category to choose correctly???

Yah, @NianticAaron please, check this topic

The Wayferer Team have given their answer. You can’t just keep asking for it to be reviewed because you are not satisfied with the outcome.

Time to let this one go

This is a wrong appeal. The wayfayer team’s answer is not relevant, so our community is not satisfied. Apparently it’s not possible to report in game while passing the appeal and this nomination was wrong from the start.
