Mission approval slow

I submitted missions in July, 2020, and they havent been review yet?

Also it would be nice to have a Mission 'discussion' area on community.


  • It’s already well known missions take forever and a day to be approved or rejected. Unfortunately it’s just a waiting game.

  • I did some in November that took a couple of days. As a test, withdraw one and resubmit, see what happens... wonder if they got lost somewhere...

    i would re-submit them, clearly something happend it should go much faster now i read.

  • Ok I did the withdrawn and resubmit and got a quick reject.

    I wish they would clarify reject reason. They list a number of reasons it could be. And doesnt make sense - its my own photo taken at the location the portals with a title and description relating to the photo.

    The others are still not reviewed. You would think they would see a resubmit as part of a backlog of my other missions in the banner and review them all?

  • After resubmitting 6, 1 is approved, 2 is rejected and 4 are not reviewed. First submitted in July

    For the rejected 1, I'm on my 4th attempt. Niantic don't tell you why missions are rejected. It adds alot of resubmit time trying to figure out whats wrong.

    They say it could be the art, title, description of way points.

    And list a number of possible reasons. And we know from experience there are reasons for rejection that are not listed, such as 'letters'.

    The mission is about black lives matter and a photo I took at the location where the mission waypoints are located. The title and description indicate the location.

    The review process is discouraging mission authors. Please let us make missions.

    Still waiting. 6 months now. Seems a bit slow.

    Any tips on getting Niantic to review missions faster?

    I’d resubmit :/ I certainly wouldn’t expect a response from Niantic regarding it..

    I did a withdrawn and resubmit in mid december. And was expecting a bit of slowness over the holidays, but its been another month.

    How long should one wait before resubmitting?

    Oh, I thought you were saying you left a few in there and hadn’t resubmitted. My last ones went through in less than a week, but that was November. Maybe things are back to “normal” and taking this long :/

    Lets do a test: No missions in this one part of town, so, I just made one:

  • I've been getting missions approved/rejected in 6-72 hrs over the last month or so. Edits to approved missions sat for over 2 weeks so I "unpublished" and "republished" the mission with the edit and got it approved in 2 days.

    Why are mine sitting in the queue unreviewed for 6 months?

    Is it the controversial nature of black lives matter? I dont see any banners like this in ingressmosaic?

    I did a BLM mission in Seattle. Was a nightmare, but that’s beside the point.

    Imagine if someone from Niantic jumped in here and could give you an actual answer....
