All pending nominations and edit suggestions denied within a second
3 hours ago I have received 25 emails from [email protected] within a fraction of a second. Vast majority of them were respones to nomination suggestions, and each of those did not give any reason for rejection of the nomination. In the field where used to be reason(s) for rejection of the nomination there is only a single dot. There was also a few edit suggestions which were generally simple typos corrections and those were rejected too. Among emails received there was one invalid portal report review (also rejected).
At this moment I do not have any pending nominations nor "in vote" ones as all of them were closed within a second.
I assume there was an error with my account resulting in automatic closure of all my pending nominations, and I demand restoration of them to review.

It's not a bug. It seems like, after an audit of your nominations or account, Niantic decided that your submission do not follow guidelines (or another issue) and has therefore cleared your entire queue. If Niantic does that, you get back everything at once with that dot. In that case, you should receive a separate email soon that explains what happened and eventual sanctions. Alternatively, try asking support if the mail doesn't arrive.
Thank you for your reply @InvestigateXM . What you say is very reasonable, but I can not remember doing anything against nomination guidelines. I'll wait for an email with clarification as I havent received such an email yet.
Apart from my situation I feel it very inapriopriate to cancel out ALL of particular Agent's nominations just beacuse one or some of them are against rules or abusive in other way
Well if you receive way too much reports of fake nominations, this could trigger this kind of events and all your nominations rejected at once.
Also, contact support as recommended.
Can you share more pictures of your proposals that got denied?
Also, nominations issues or here: community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com
I am rather not type of person, who submits fake nominarions. I always do my best to make my nomination's quality as high as possible. During my 2-year "career" I successfully discovered over 300 portals, and this is the first time I am facing such a situation.
Do you mean nominated portal photos or rejection email screenshots?
Well I just received email from Niantic with explanations... They state I "have been submitting incorrect or inappropriate titles/descriptions/images for existing Portals".
As I said before, I have no clue what I did wrong. Niantic did not provide any further information where the violation(s) took place and since "any further [Portal Cryteria] violations can lead to the suspension of my Ingress account" I'll simply stop improving portal net.
Problem solved, good job Nia!
Pictures of the things/candidates.
Well, you proposed something that resemble a roof of something and named it Urban Mountain... Is that an art/sculpture in a public area or just a mailbox in a house?
Well, thats it, looks you received a ton of reports in your nominations, reviewers reported one or more than one of your nominations and the system triggered this. 😊
Send good portals and you will be good.
@Ibiquer in the future, can you report this in the Wayfarer forum at https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/? They manage the abuse measures for Portal nominations and edits and will be better able to help.
It is not mailbox haha 😆
The screenshot cut off the rest of the image
I do not want to spam here with photos, but there are some of them. Basically there were football pitches, trial maps and markers (like one in post above), murals, urban art, post office, and a few park features like fountains, monuments etc
The thing is, I do not know what is "good portal" anymore. Niantic did not even highlight particular nomination that violated the terms, let alone which part of the nomination. I value my Ingress account more than quality of portal net, so I will resign from editing and nominating portals.
Niantic shuold really change their politics in this topic, because now I am not like "oh, I know what I did wrong, now I have to improve" but rather like "oh, I do not know what I did wrong, but if I will do it again, they will suspent my account"
Thank you for you advise. At the moment I was submitting this I tought it is an issue with my Ingress account. If i knew it is wayfarer abuse thing I would definitely post this topic on wayfarer community forum.
