Hope you’re all doing well. I want to inform you all that there will be a downtime period where won't be able to make any nominations due to server maintenance this tomorrow (11/11/21) between 3:30pm - 5:00pm PST. Please be aware that you will not be able to make any submissions via Pokémon GO and Ingress. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as we’re done and everything is back up.
We appreciate your patience and understanding. Check out the original post HERE.
Not for too long. But I’ll keep some ready if I find some.
Maybe this gets extended a bit so we can catch up on the back log 😂
Niantic: “What backlog?”
Bc of the removing from the most Pokéstops and gym's? -We call for a standardization of the rules for the appearance of stops, especially in PokémonGO, and we want to do it the next time! We also want to benefit from all possibilities and a fairness towards all players!
@NianticTintino-ING is this maintenence why all four of my nominations which were "in voting" are now displaying as "in queue"?
Is that why some of my "in voting" went back to being "in queue"?
Yeah, same issue, 8 or 9 things have reverted back to in queue, I assume a glitch with the maintenance? (I hope)
Only 8 or 9, my entire voting backlog is now in queue. I hope this is a fix.
Same. I had at least 10, and they’re all back In Queue.
Yeah, thats all I had in voting so far. (slow area) There's no way that we all went back into the queue... Has to be a visual glitch...
Not that it matters much. It would just stay in voting unless you upgrade it. I still have my nominations from 2019 in voting and now in queue again.
All of my submissions back to queue also, at least 15, I hadnt counted. The 4 oldest were in voting since May 2020. I hope this is temporary due to the downtime but even so this should have been communicated to wayfarers instead of us all being here wondering if we have to start all over again after endless waiting.
Yep everything is in queue nothing in voting.
Hm, so the nominations that were in voting, but now "back in queue" must be in voting still, because attempting to edit them results in "Invalid record."
My submissions when are in voting now are back to the queue too.
Me too. 🤔
Thank you for reporting this back. I've messaged out team to look into this and will report back as soon as I have more information. I appreciate your patience in the mean time.
I reported it as seemingly resolved in my Bug Report thread.
If you were part of our Discord Server you'd be caught up and knew it was fixed like 20 minutes ago.
Our team confirmed that it's now been fixed! Thank you all!
Come for the community. Stay for the office supply themed emojis.
Lol yes @NianticTintino-ING come be my friend in the Wayfarer Discussion 4.3 Discord.
Wayfarer went down about 15 minutes ago. Guess that was an unintended consequence of this server maintenance.
I am guessing it was intended they just failed to inform us. I am sure they will give us an update on what is going on after they fix whatever they are doing like they always do. After the fact.
And my guess is it is the upgrade next bug I ran into around 2:00pm est. I tried to upgrade next one in voting when I was at 96% earlier and it would not let me do that one or any other one in voting. So I was stuck having to pick one in queue I did not want to waste an upgrade on. Ridiculous
With the fix, the recently turned gym at my area had turned back in to a pokéstop again. Very sad.
Yeah Niantic likes to steal money from people who hunted for those gold gyms, just to have them removed. Well done Niantic!
Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with the way Niantic handled the situation or the way they communicated it. But you're being waaay overdramatic here. They included these glitched new stops/gyms in the "known issues" page pretty early. It was fairly clear from the very beginning that they were not intended to sync into PoGo. So "stealing money" is just not fair - those people willingly risked their passes to get a gym badge that could be suspected to be temporary.
