Thank you for the amazing rewards!
I appreciate the upgrades, definitely. I wish we had some way to mark local-interest candidates as "do not upgrade" in advance of any awards, but no matter how applied, five upgrades is about three weeks' worth of reviews for me and I'll take 'em no matter how haphazardly distributed.
But I do think the way to get more involvement in the event is not to promise more rewards: it's to show company engagement in the process by answering the many questions posed by potential participants. We have many here who would have been happily reviewing if they'd gotten answers.
The upgrades are really a great reward, also because, unlike the in-game rewards, they are directly related to Wayfarer! (Please don't get it wrong, I'm also happy about the in-game rewards!)
The only problem will be that due to the current implementation of the upgrade allocation, a maximum of one upgrade to a desired Wayspot is possible. The other four are presumably randomly distributed among the remaining nominations. And we all know there are nominations that you don't want to upgrade.
A "do not upgrade automatically" function for wayspots, as suggested by @Shilfiell-ING , or the possibility of assigning the next five instead of just the next upgrade would fix this problem.
I hope to hear the good news by 18 June 2021 when special rewards are provided!
2nd half is not by the 18th of June 2021, it's by December 31st 2021.
I really hope that they allow us to apply these across the submissions we want. This could really have a negative impact to submissions that require a local review pool.
Ugh; just read the note from Casey that this wont happen until late 2021. I'm now regretting taking part of this challenge.
I'm participating in this event and I hope Niantic will give us at least 24 hours to choose the nominations we want.
I really wish this would be optional. Or, better still, if they could allow us to choose 5 nominations to "upgrade next" before.
Can we have a direct link to this timing statement from Niantic, please? The only timing I saw stated was that the awards announced prior to the Upgrades would be released on June 18th.
With or without this event, upgrades should never be applied automatically. Our life will be 100 times better if we can hold the upgrades and apply them when/how we want to.
Niantic has stated that they are working on that
Yes.... hope we can hold the upgrade
