Wayspot removal - Duplicate and kind of on a car road

When submitting a Wayspot Appeal, make sure to include as much of the following information as possible:

  • Wayspot Title: Puerta Derecha Iglesia San Miguel

  • Location (lat/lon): (36.6797111, -6.1372597)

  • City: Jerez de la Frontera

  • Country: Spain

  • Screenshot of the Rejection Email (do not include your personal information):

  • Additional Information (if any): this wayspot is pretty much a duplicate from the one that’s literally 5 meters away called “Iglesia San Miguel”. Translating to English, the original wayspot is “Saint Michael Church”, and the duplicate, the one I’m trying to remove OR degrade into a simple pokestop and not a gym (as it is now:

    is “Right Side Door of Saint Michael’s Church”. I think it is fair, as gyms should be a bit spread out, and quite frankly, it’s nonsense to make TWO waystops out of a normal church. Not even the cathedral of my city has two waystops, and it is four times as big as this church.
    Moreover, the right side entrance of the church is very close to a car lane, which isn’t delimited by a curb, so a pedestrian wouldn’t be too safe looking down at the phone there.

The main wayspot is ok, though, as it has some benches and places to sit right in front of it. And, I mean, I get that the support team can do only so much, but I’m not contacting the 96 year old Lead Pastor of a Catholic Church to tell him to write me something about a video game on my phone. Anyways, thanks.

Whoops, I forgot to add that I reported this in game and they didn’t accept it:

Hence why I submitted the appeal from the link Pokémon go provides, which is the picture I attached in the previous post, where they ask me to talk to the 96 year-old pastor. I add this just in case it helps.

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