If you encounter any nominations or edits while reviewing that you believe are inappropriate or show signs of abuse, use this form to report the nomination or edit in question. This form is only open to Wayfinders,* so please sign in to your Wayfarer login email in order to submit a report.
Please note that you will not receive a personal response to your report, but our team will review each report and take appropriate action.
What can you report via the form:
Offensive or abusive title/description edits:
Attempts to add an offensive title/description to a live Wayspot
Title/description edits that mention codenames, real names or other personal information of players
Titles, descriptions, or supporting information that attempt to inappropriately influence the reviewers to vote in a specific way
Invalid location edits:
Attempts to move the Wayspot to a location away from the object with which it’s associated (for example, moving the Wayspot to a different city/country)
Issues with photos:
Photos with recognizable faces, license plates
Photos with watermarks or other copyrighted information
Attempts to intentionally add unrelated photos
If you notice more than one nomination in the location that does not exist in the location, use this option to flag the location
Note: Wayfinders can report an inappropriate nomination during the review process. While reviewing the nomination, select one-star for the “Should this be a Wayspot” question and select the appropriate rejection reason.
What information do I need to include in the report:
Title of the Wayspot
Location (click the Google icon on the map to open the map in a separate tab and copy the URL)
Reason for reporting
Any additional information to explain why this candidate was reported
Once you fill in the form, you can take action on the candidate in Wayfarer. If it’s an invalid edit, choose the best option (title/description/edit) for that Wayspot and move on to the next review.
What action will be taken on the report?
Once we receive the report with the necessary information, we’ll review the reported nomination/edit and other nominations/edits submitted by the submitter. Players submitting invalid nominations/edits may receive a warning, a suspension, or have their Wayfarer account terminated. In case of repeated offenses or where the submitter is not active in Wayfarer, their Ingress or Pokémon GO account may also be affected.
In cases where the Wayspot was invalid and should not have been approved, we may also investigate the Wayfinders involved in the approval and issue penalties based on the severity of the offense. Wayfinders who submit inappropriate reports via the form linked above may also receive a warning or punishment for repeat offenses.
*If you are not a Wayfinder and wish to report inappropriate or abusive edits or Wayspots, please use your Ingress Scanner or Pokémon GO app to submit a report.
