I had two nominations which were tagged with in voting by Niantic. Now they are both back in queue. Did somebody notice this, too?
Same thing happened to me. Maybe they're just checking if it's on residential property.
Yeah had the same. I think it’s probably just a visual bug though. Any ideas @NianticTintino
Same here - had two with balloon, now zero.
My hope is, that Niantic realises, that there are thousands of pending nominations from last summer out there, that were blocked by the system.
They should review evrything from June - August 2020 manually. The stuff from back then seems to be forgotten by the algorithm.
Ideally they should go from both ends. Have some doing the older stuff and some taking newer stuff.
I had one, and came here to ask the same question. It was tagged as "Niantic Review" on 11/18
but was back "in queue" 11/19
Have seen several Discord reports that Niantic Reviews have been placed back in queue.
Maybe reviewers are off this week? Holiday week here in America.
I'm hopeful that they're doing the legally-mandated reviews, and that's it: cull the PRP and abusive submissions, and return the rest to the queue for peer review. That would be the best of all possible worlds, in my opinion anyway.
But @NianticGiffard is still working here...
OMG ! Is the date real ?! I mean, 16 months !! It's kind of frustrating...
I’m wondering with this, whether it’s a case of holidays.
It’s Thanksgiving time in the US, and a lot of staff will be off. As with any job, there will be service level agreements about when the reviews should be completed and how many.
With lots of staff off, perhaps it was decided that these targets wouldn’t be met, and thus they were released back to the reviewers instead of Niantic doing it.
That could be the best answer possible. Eliminate those which are immediate rejection and let the community of reviewers decide if it met the acceptance criterias. I hope this.
(I believe their trying to pass the test in fact. After what we seen here it's plausible and will need a long time^^)
I’d be very, very surprised if the reviewers were located at all in the US. Everybody I’ve polled has had their Niantic review replies come in overnight in the US.
This one was nominated on the 15th went in to Niantic review on the 18th. On the 23rd, I noticed it was back in general review by the community.
There is another one that had the same behavior. No decision by Niantic reviewers.
Hopefully it stays that way. We've seen time and time again that giving them the final say is a big no no. There's nothing more dangerous than an idiot calling the shots.
And hey, it's less work for them and now nobody can point the finger at them fot accepting coal. Niantic, the true masters of dodging liability 😂
I was really hopeful when two of my cycling trails were selected in Niantic review. Sadly now the community will decline them as with the other 52 cycling trails I nominated. With Niantic review I had some hope to get them through
I wonder if they're reviewing them, and then putting them back in the pool so that they can see if regular wayfarers vote the same way. Though it could just be another bug. Either way, some Niantic insight would be welcome.
Niantic and insight in one sentence? You must be new here :P
The advantage for me was that the Niantic reviews were free upgrades for submissions that would normally take years.
