Instead of an 'Upgrade' I'd prefer to request Niantic manually check one of my rejected submissions
I keep having 5* candidates knocked back repeatedly and it's honestly driving me insane when I'm just trying to help. They won't be ready for December's big community day for people to have somewhere safe and indoors to play during the Australian Summer like I've been trying to prepare for months with little success.
I've had murals in shopping centres rejected as private property and seasonal. I've had coin operated play machines rejected like 6 times now with supporting statements pointing reviewers to where they can find the updated criteria list from within Wayfarer quite easily (though they've stopped rejecting with 'doesn't meet criteria,' and now choose seasonal and generic business, or low quality photo - anybody who uses the 1* photo rejection for this should be put on probation or just permanently banned - https://i.imgur.com/LHU12U8.png - when the criteria describes 1* as such a bad photo that you cannot **** the object).
At this point I think I'm passing my care point for creating new content for free, and it sounds like the trolls are going to dominate and drive everybody away who is actually trying to be useful. It's just punishing. I understand there's a lot of content to sift through, but I'd swap 5 upgrades for the chance to get Niantic to manually look at rejections of my choice, and do something about the reviewers who rejected them if they agree that it was a very wrong decision. Currently they're less than unhelpful, they're outright ruining the whole process.
Very frustrated. So many hours of my life down the drain thanks to these time wasters.
