Hello, I dont understand, why my nomination Restaurant Michl Wirt Dorfstra├če 10, 93138 Lappersdorf, Deutschland was not accepted by Niantic. The reason for rejection has no sence. Which information has to be added? In eligible Criteria stays:
A great place to be social with others
A favorite gathering place for friends or strangers alike, where you can share a drink or meal, be entertained, or watch public life happen. Or something that draws us together to share an experience in a locally and culturally relevant way.

In my nomination i have wrote, that this ist the only one and very popular Restaurant in Oppersdorf. Which additional supporting information is needed? I do not understand!

this is because anyone can tell that about their local restaurant. the niantic staff reviewer has asked you to resubmit it with more data to back these claims up. You can put weblinks to ratings and more information in the supporting information.

Also, be aware that Wayfarer is not Pokemon GO. Whether it would make a good pokestop is not part of the criteria. While in the supporting information it is not subject to be rejected because of it, it can impact your nomination negatively as this is irrelevant text.

I looked up the restaurant.
This is the website:

You can write about that itÔÇÖs speciality is Bavarian cuisine and that they have a ÔÇťSchnitzelpartyÔÇŁ on Thursdays.

Google lists >140 ratings over 4 stars (out of 5)

On their facebook website, thereÔÇÖ also an example of a Bavarian music event being held there.

With all this information, you can improve this nomination a lot, so that in the end, with an eventual new retry and appeal, it has good chances to be accepted. Admittedly, restaurants are not that straight forward to do, but I hope with this advice you can make it!


Thanks a lot for your help! The information you provided is very useful :slight_smile:
