I really doubt anyone will be compensated for Niantic screwing up their nomination plans. They barely give us past-deadline update to tell us it won't be for roughly another two weeks. I hardly doubt they have compensation for anyone on their minds. imo
Thankfully, I figured that making my submissions the day or two before wouldn't really have mattered if the update went live or not.
In other words:
If update happened, then great, I have more nominations to submit.
If no update, not great but at least I didn't waste days waiting to submit nominations.
Yeah, a bunch of us including myself lost nominations back in July and it was being "investigated"... Still no word about it.
Nomination has disappeared into the ether...
Seems like they should still just top up everyone at 14 nominations on Friday to make up for the incorrect date, and the plans folks had made based on it. That really doesn’t seem like too much to ask.
There is no team. It's just three forum moderators in a trenchcoat stacked on top of each other.
Yeah, it sucked I was living in a small town at the time, it would have helped a lot.
The level of incompetence is quite something, quite something indeed.
I came back here hoping to see an update on this. Color me surprised that Niantic-Wayfarer has dropped the ball again on something with ZERO communication with its userbase. I'm so glad the #HearUsNiantic campaign really made some long-lasting changes.
That's technically not correct.
@NianticTintino did post a reply a couple pages ago, stating that the date has now been moved to October 26th. Hopefully it will go more smoothly/less glitchy if they had implemented the change on October 12th.
Now, granted, the reply was a day late but you can't say that it's "zero" communication with the player base.
Can we have confirmation that this is still happening on the 26th?
If it's potentially delayed again, I'd like to know now.
It would be good to have a general announcement to all players in advance of it happening.
I think this time they will release that, past 48 hours most of my submission which were in voting has went through after disappearing from the nominations list. Almost all of them are missing from ingress and Pokémon go, but I think they are clearing backlog before this new launch.
On top of what others have said, Tintino's announcement was also posted on both the Wayfarer and Silph Road subreddits to enable it to be seen by more people (no idea if it got posted in the Pokémon Go subreddit as I'm not part of that). There has been an attempt to get this news out to people. It could've been done much better of course, but the level of communication was not zero.
I think the posts to the Reddit where made by individuals. And although some of these have a wider user base it is not reaching out to all.
There is a lack of responsibility for communicating changes to the whole potential wayfarer player base. Quite a lot will log in and wonder what is happening.
I’m using up all my Pokémon GO & Ingress nominations as they come back in as I have a long queue of stuff to submit. I was hoping to reduce that queue significantly by Tuesday, so am hopeful for an update by Monday. (I know that no-one from the main communicators we have here will respond at the weekend)
what would you expect? They didnt even post that it wont happen.
Maybe they forgot about it totally, or had no internet that day.
Well guess they just didnt want to post "sorry we forgot" and had to get a clearing for the words they used.
Hopefully we hear something tomorrow that it's on track or not? Wouldn't be great to have a repeat of last time...
Hey @NianticTintino Now that it is Monday, you folks will be back in the office.
Can you please confirm that this will be coming tomorrow?
they will know tomorrow :)
They are one of the worlds worst companies when it comes to communicating with their users, and you all think you'll get a notice before it happens...if it even will tomorrow!! Not happening. Wake up from your dreaming and come back to reality!!! You obviously won't find out until tomorrow.
Yeah, I/we'd like maybe a simple "we're on track for tomorrow" or "nope" today... But I think if I hold my breath I'll asphyxiate.
I don't have high hopes since what happened two weeks ago last time.
Yeah its 7pm Eastern for me... I've already passed out from lack of oxygen.
With the announcement that the first time orientation is delayed until 11.2 instead of 10.26 with the 40 nominations... ehhhh it doesn't look promising. Please prove me wrong? please?
Nicht unerwartet. Und trotzdem extrem frustrierend @NianticTintino
Will we have another delay? Will it be released today?
Place your bets now people!
I think it will be released today as they did not mention delaying the change in contribution limits in the post yesterday about delaying new player onboarding.
If it is coming out today, what's the likely launch time?
Niantic o’clock which is in about 5 and half hours.
Is that for real orrr is that a joke? haha. I know "Niantic o'clock" is a joke term that's before my time here on Wayfarer.
It’s usually the time that events start, so it would be a good guess.
