I don't know
1 year in limbo (City Fortaleza, Brazil)
Unfortunately, in some neighborhoods in the city of Fortaleza, Brazil, even with several evaluators, requests do not leave the queue, The most critical neighborhood location is https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=-3.805695,-38.53984&z=17&pll=-3.805162,-38.539119
And even now with the wayfarer event in Brazil Challenge, the queue continues in the same way, that is, some neighborhoods in the city do not appear for evaluation. We need this urgent correction, as it discourages both players and evaluators in the region.
hi @NianticTintino @NianticTintino
In Brazil there is no way, nor event works.
People only approve of designs on the wall, churches or water towers.
I made several eligible applications and they were not approved. Niantic has to make some explanation video to train the approvers, I don't think they read the requirements. Here close to home there are two examples.
A basketball board that is on a dead end street that I believe fits the criteria as it is sports equipment and a great place to socialize and it's quiet. Rejected 4 times.
An old playground that is inside a condominium but it is open to the public because the condominium occupies several streets, was rejected 4 times.
Both are quiet and safe places, really cool places to hang out and meet people, that you can have little risk of getting mugged for example.
But here it only approves gravity from the middle of the street or water towers, in the middle of nowhere, as if you were going to stand there in the middle of the street with your cell phone in your hand asking to be stolen, as if I were going to climb a water tower to play, I honestly do not understand it.
No Brasil não tem jeito, nem evento da certo.
As pessoas so aprovam desenhos no muro, igrejas ou torres de agua.
Fiz varios pedidos elegiveis e não foram aprovados. A Niantic tem que fazer algum video de explicação pra treinar os aprovadores, acho que não leam os requisitos. Aqui perto de casa tem dois exemplos.
Uma placa de basquete que é em uma rua sem saída que eu acredito se encaixar nos criterios pois é um equipamento de esportes e otimo lugar pra socializar e é tranquilo. Rejeitado 4 vezes.
Um parquinho antigo que é dentro de um condominio porém ele é aberto ao publico pelo fato do condominio ocupar varias ruas, foi rejeitado 4 vezes.
Ambos são lugares tranquilos e seguros, lugares realmente legais pra ficar e conhecer pessoas, que você pode ficar com um risco pequeno de ser assanltado por exemplo.
Mas aqui so aprova gravites do meio da rua ou torres de agua, no meio do nada, como se você fosse ficar la no meio da rua parado com o celular na mão pedindo pra ser furtado, como se eu fosse subir numa torre de agua pra jogar, eu sinceramente não entendo isso.
Because in Brazil people do not approve of pokestops, we have a deficiency in that, they approve of very specific things, I think there is a lack of training and not an event.
This generates weariness because the person has to request 20 times if they want to have a pokestop nearby and hope that the evaluators have common sense even if something is eligible. This increases the queue and causes frustration for many people. There is a list with an example of what should be a good pokestop, but they are examples, there is an explanation,
But it's ok if the item stops exactly as listed in the example. It can be a good place to meet people and have an element that defines you, but if you don't have it in the list of examples, it doesn't.
In fact, even I have doubts sometimes, the material is very small, there are to be training campaigns. A few months ago you Niantic placed several automatic pokestops in areas with few pokestops, but I didn't see any announcements that these new pokestops would be allowed, sometimes you have to campaign on your own site with tips to make players aware. What is not a good pokestop. Because I wonder, because in some regions of Brazil commerce can be pokestop and others not?
In fact, I even think it's eligible.
A bakery for example is:
"A favorite hangout for friends or strangers, where you can share a drink or meal, have fun or observe public life. Or something that brings us together to share an experience in a locally and culturally relevant way."
However, in rejection criteria, it has the following sentence:
"A generic company, chain or franchise that is not unique locally"
The corner grocery store is not a chain but it is a unique company, but I think people here do not know how to interpret this phrase, so all bakeries, cafeterias, restaurants and others are rejected even though they are unique locally and not a franchise, but Niantic put it several of these pokestops in various places which makes me think I should really accept it, but there is no ad or training and in general people reject, and I end up rejecting too, afraid to lower my grade because it becomes an infinite loop. people start to reject because everyone reject and that will lower the grade.
I am sincerely leaving my point of view here, I truly believe that a training campaign with tips on the website itself, videos would be much more useful than an event.
It's another detail that it's much better for me to go play in a public place that gives me security than in a bunch of graffiti in the middle of nowhere
Another reason why this Wayfarer challenge is a joke.
Brazillian Wayfarer community tends to approve several things to be accepted (what they like, of course) while reject others. Not to mention they intentionally approved fakes or duplicates.
@NianticTintino if you're still reviewing, please answer this quick: how many nominations you've already reviewed that are actually fake?
Probably none. I have a report of invalid fake POIs and abuse , and haven't any answer in the forum even after two weeks and still there.
Abuse of fake duplicate portals and recurrent edit POI tittles (at that "wayfarer challenge" they are "having fun"). They received one strike and will do it again and again.
I posted recently here and "disappeared", look at those links and you will see what is wayfarers in some part of Brazil.
@Wallflower14-ING Bem, sim, já comentei referente a esse assuntos, dos jogadores ficarem interessados somente nos POIs, se você ir no meu perfil e comentários, vai encontrar em um post do mesmo canal de discussão.
Still no brazil nominations popped up for me, I've just given up on hoping I'd get any. Waste of a bonus location move
Bom Dia! Estou assustado pois minhas nomeações trocaram como fotos e já estão em aprimoramento, isso não é justo! Elas não serão aceitas por causa desse Bug ... Por favor me ajudem! @NianticTintino@NianticDanbocat@NianticGiffard

Não consigo avaliar mais Pokestops ha mais de 7 dias. Fiz tudo direitinho, estou com aproveitamento de 99% e não aparece mais nenhum para mim. O que está acontecendo?
I would like my home location to be reset.
It's not gonna be reset
very good, pity that most of the indications are false
Is there any chance that i can change my homelocation back from Brasil? There were apparently misleading statements about it and now after more than one year i can´t still change ist.
Done. Thanks for letting us know.
Porque quando a indicação vai pra avaliação da Niantic demora tanto preferia que minha solicitação fosse avaliada pelo público
