OPR in the news on PokemonHub....
Personally I think Niantic should do wizards before Pokemon for submissions, because a wizard creating a portal sounds like magic and makes sense. Pokemon Go, some are ready for OPR reviews and the mass community of Pokemon Go would help the review speeds. But niantic hasn't released in the USA which is still a surprise when other areas have it.
Personally, I think submissions should have a check box for which games they are intended for, so reviewer's can see the difference of the location spacing and not reject as often. Because ingress and Wizards have closer spacing than Pokemon Go. I feel players who have earned High enough levels in each game should have a higher weighted vote where others who didn't. Because that means you have taken the time to learn all of the games and not just one.
(No... Let's not make this about me. But a civil conversation....)
So what's Niantic's plan with submissions moving forward. If OPR reviewer's are burnt out and tired, new eyes from the larger communities would help the situation.
