PokéStop and Gym contributions

Earlier this year, the PokéStop submission system was launched for all players, and finally went out of beta. And yesterday, Niantic launched a PokéStop and Gym contribution system, that allows players suggest improvements to PokéStop and Gym information (titles, descriptions, and photos), all of which are submitted for approval through Niantic Wayfarer.

But unfortunately, due to overwhelming response from players, the entire system has been disabled for now. It’s not clear when it will come back.
