  • Additional Information (if any):
    Recently visited this park and this way spot was no where to be found. Attached is a geotagged photo of the park. The photo is looking west from the parking lot towards the main playground structure. To the right of the path you can see a picnic table, and the back of signboard that has the name of the park on it and is a nearby way spot. Towards the left of the path you can see the playground, and the area where the Huron Watershed way spot should be. If you look at Google Street View, it will show where the signboard used to be. Looking at the first geotagged photo, you can use the bend in the path, and the same tree, but the signboard for Huron Watershed is not in this location. An additional geotagged photo taken from the opposite direction looking towards the parking lot is also attached.

But why it was rejected?

I have just had the exact same thing happen to me. No indication of why my Report was rejected yet the stop is clearly bogus. The picture provided is from a Gym several km’s away and the Description is simply Local Park and it is not even a park.

The initial report sent to Niantic suggesting removal has none of the details given about why the Wayspot should be removed. It’s just a request to remove the spot. A lot of the time that request is rejected because Niantic don’t have the details on the situation. Sometimes they can figure out why something should be removed (it’s clearly an adult location that never should have been accepted, for example) but much of the time appeals here in the forum are necessary to explain why something should go. And if you’ve got details/proof through photos, it’s often very easy for them to agree with you and remove the spot. Best practice is to snap some Geotagged photos of the area when you send in the removal request and be prepared to appeal on the forums going in.

Thanks for the appeal @sunkast After reviewing the additional evidence provided, we’ve decided to retire the Wayspot in question.
