Before I submit a new nomination, I always check to make sure I won't be submitting a duplicate. This glitch is very troubling because my missing (yet approved) portal does not show on the Ingress Intel map, but it does show in Pokémon Go. This glitch is going to snowball into something huge. 🥺 Let's say another agent (especially one that does not play PoGo) comes along and they think they've found a good POI to nominate. The agent checks the Intel Map and IITC and finds nothing, so they submit the nomination. Later they are surprised (and/or angered and annoyed, especially if their nomination was upgraded 💔) to find their nomination was marked as a duplicate, even though according to Ingress, the Ingress Intel map and IITC, no such original/duplicate portal exists. Yet Wayfarer reviewers still see the existing POI during review, because it actually does exist, just somehow not in Ingress.
I believe I've encountered this exact situation. A portal I recently nominated was marked as a duplicate, yet no such duplicate portal exists in Ingress. To make matters worse, this "duplicate" does not show in PoGo because it is located in the same cell as an existing pokestop, but it would have shown in Ingress because it is >20m away from the nearest portal. So basically this phantom POI is out there somewhere, lost in the void, forever waiting to eat up nominations and upgrades. 😭
I missed my submission which was approved but didn't show up in ingress and not on the intell map.
I also got no key.
I think it's a pokestop but I am not sure.

After having a good run of nominations being accepted in-game, with the AP and key, I finally have one accepted but not in-game now:
Unfortunately this is about 2-3 hours away in a regional town, so it's unlikely to be submitted again despite being accepted.
Henley Oval Throwing Cage
Homenage al Padre Francisco de Paula Tarin
Parque de Merendas da Queda do Vigário
Yeah, keep on doing nothing and ignore this issue Niantic. First subscriptions cancelled from angry agents, thank you for your awesome support.
Baseball Field #3
These 5 are all live on Pokemon Go as pokestops, have been approved in Wayfarer but don’t show on the Ingress Intel map :
Old Wells Road Carved Boulder
Glastonbury Mural Trail - #38 Jacob's Ladder
The Glastonbury Way Trail Marker #5
Caddis Fly Larvae
Ham Wall Information and Map
@NianticVK please can you investigate and advise ? Something seems really wrong here.
At least now quite a lot of people found their way here to show how many approvals are affected.....
Missing two portals on the intel and also the keys:
Energiesparlampen und griechische Buchstaben
Location: 50.954105, 11.001579

McCutchanville Ballpark Playground: 38.070455, -87.516197
Locations are approximate.
That doesn't make any sense.
1) If it has to go through an "additional review", why do you show it as "approved"?
2) Why is this "additional review" only in place for Ingress, but not in other games that utilise Wayspots such as Pokemon GO or Wizards Unite? What is the reason that only Ingress needs an "additional review"?
3) Me and other agents have waited "a few days", the portals are just not showing up despite your claim, even after many weeks.
4) This makes nominating Wayspots even more confusing. Because if it doesnt show on the Intel Map (or only months later) you accidentally submit Wayspots that are already "approved".
Hey there, Agents! I've shared the names and coordinates of all the portals with the concerned team. Our team is working on it. We appreciate your patience in the meantime.
I have 2 portals missing in ingress which I have already reported in wayfarer forum.
Location of missing portals
Could you please answer this simple question.
Is the root cause thought to be a bug/something faulty in the system or is it a new set of eligibility rules/checks.
In other words what are the team working on and why is it taking so long?
I'm an agent from Baltimore seeing the same issue with missing keys and portals in Ingress.
Portal name: Take Me Out To Pitamore
Location of missing portal: 39.28567, -76.62347
I've been talking with an agent from the Rehoboth Beach, DE area and he's having the same issue.

Another 2 missing portals:

So far I have two missing portals:
Deep Run Playground - 40.387584,-74.309326
Morganville United Methodist Church Garden - 40.363579, -74.246091
I submitted both of them, they were approved, and they are in Pokemon Go as Pokestops.
Two that disappeared from Wayfarer, were accepted by Niantic manually (not through Wayfarer voting), were accepted to PoGo and HPWU but are not close to other portals but missing from Ingress:
Kurkelankatu 28 leikkipaikka (location approximately: 60.415643,25.102365)

Hi @NianticVK (and FYI @NianticThia as you have commented on this issue also).
Are you aware, that all these wayspots seem to be ones that have been reviewed by Niantic and not by the Wayfarer community? That piece of information should narrow down the root reason about why these wayspots never turn into portals.
Me and others would also like to know, if we have to report all these wayspots manually in a community forum thread? Or can we expect that the bug is located and squashed and all the missing wayspots are synchronized into Ingress in one big batch at some point?
It feels quite a task to report all of those wayspots at the forums (as those still keep coming), let alone someone from the Niantic end to go manually through all of those and sync them to Ingress one by one.
@NianticVK Here are my three missing portals with proper proximity, related to this bug. The first one is an absolutely cool and culturally significant WWII monument, and for the rest of the two, it feels especially unfair to have to wait for more than 14 months in queue just for these portals to go into a black hole.
Portal name: Isänmaan puolesta: Kalevi ja Tapani Ilmonen

Not sure if this has been discussed already, but in case this helps anybody:
How did I get the location coordinates for my portals?
Using my MacBook (works on any Windows, Linux... PC-browser just as well), browsed to Wayfarer;
- Selected my nomination which went into the black hole from the Nominations menu
Frankly it's immoderate that we have to jump through these kinda hoops to get our portals into Ingress, but hey, it's NIA.
@NianticVK Same issue here:
Nomination sended: April 12th, via Prime
Portal accepted: September 7th
Cartel informativo Las Atalayas

These are 2 that have not appeared in ingress.
Constance Ogilvie Memorial Bench (37.432382,-122.265088) Accepted Sept 2 - exists in PokemonGo, but not ingress
Cineopolis Tree Murals proximity of (37.540237,-122.301035) Accepted Sept 4 - does not exist in either (there is another POI in the cell so not appearing in PokemonGo is expected)
