Trainers, we’re back with a critical update on a topic we touched upon at the beginning of this month, 30-day bans for submitting ‘non-compliant’ Wayfarer nominations in Pokémon GO.
Pokémon GO players who have been submitting Wayfarer PokeStop nominations are finding themselves on the receiving end of a 30-day account suspension. This is, to say the least, a bit puzzling. Why is Niantic choosing to suspend Pokémon GO accounts when they could be targeting Wayfarer accounts instead? The question is as crucial as it is baffling.
In our previous report, we discussed how players submitting nominations that don’t align with Wayfarer’s guidelines were being handed a 30-day ban. The bans continue to roll out, but what exactly constitutes a violation? Why are these bans being issued, and what is the underlying reason?
From what we’ve gathered, these bans appear to be primarily linked to nominations that have been accepted by the community and are already in the system. This adds another layer of complexity to the situation: Why are accepted nominations leading to account suspensions?
I will literally NEVER submit another Wayfair pokestop or Routes in Pokémon go.
Can’t imagine having your account BANNNED bc of it.
So stupid. https://t.co/bSfnYE6YYE

In light of the current situation, our advice is to hold off on submitting any new PokeStops, Gyms, or Routes until further clarity emerges. There’s still no detailed information on what’s triggering these bans, and until there is, it’s better to err on the side of caution to keep your account in good standing.
We’re interested to hear your perspective on this ongoing issue. It’s a confusing and worrying time for those who actively participate in the Wayfarer program, and collective insights might help us get to the bottom of it faster.
While there’s still much to learn about why these 30-day bans are being issued for Wayfarer nominations, it’s crucial to exercise caution. Keep your accounts safe, Trainers, and stay tuned for more updates as we continue to dig deeper into this pressing matter.
