Some nominations are better when reviewed by the locals than an international pool(especially when it comes to business). Beside I want to make sure I am the one who choose what's going to be upgraded.
You can choose, set the one you want as upgrade next.
I think that this is not necessary, because we all send proposals of excellent, good or regular quality, you simply select the next improvement button in your current best proposal, so that it has a greater chance of being accepted by foreign evaluators at any time you enter vote. If you have good and regular proposals, avoid placing the next improvement on them, so that it has a better chance of being approved by being evaluated by local and regional evaluators. It's just being organized and planning your nominations.
I do have to stop voting for not getting an Upgrade since my nominations are in French if I am nomination a business. I don't care much for trail markers or footbridges since they seem to be accepted, but it's not the same when I have to explain more what I am trying to do.
My beef with the upgrades is how fast they get applied sometimes. Every now and then, I'd go out, submit like 5 things, then by the time I get home 3 hours later, none of them have shown up on my Wayfarer queue, so I go do something else for another couple of hours, then check back and suddenly everything is in queue and the upgrade already got automatically applied, often not to the submission I wanted the upgrade on. 😡
Here's the latest comment from NianticCasey - "Having seen a number of complaints about this system, however, we're going to be re-examining how upgrades are managed for the future."
I hope the Wayfarer team can fix it, eventually.
I’m at the point in nominating things in my area all the really easy acceptable spots are done and now im down to more subjective things like businesses. I tend just not to review very often unfortunately. Unless i see a nomination from my area come up.
umm that if it's a problem, it has never really happened to me. When I make a nomination, it goes to the queue within 10 minutes after submitting it. It would be worth reporting this bug to wayfarer, in a post in the correct section.
It’s not a bug
Niantic sometimes do additional checks on some submissions which means it takes a while to go into the queue.
As Damastaglen pointed out the fact that submissions don't go into Wayfarer queue straight away is a feature not a bug - Nia even mentioned it in this thread:
My friends and I went out for a trip to a national park and made a bunch of submissions, mine two were up pretty much straight away, friend 1 had theirs up in about 3 hours and friend 2 had theirs up in over a day. So if you had upgrades in stash and you submit a bunch of stuff, it's a bit like playing lotto. Apparently the order that the submissions came up in Wayfarer queue wasn't in the order the nominations were made either for one of them.
