Where is Giffard?

Maybe some of the Wayfinders here, including myself, are starting to worry about this, so I'm going to ask a question on behalf of everyone.
Giffard has not been seen since 2022.
In addition, other members are currently taking on the roles that Giffard would have taken on in the past.
Could it be that Giffard is simply on an extended vacation?
If so, my fears are unfounded, but is it possible that he has left the Wayfarer team or has stepped off the Niantic ship?
If that's the case, it's a very sad day for me, as he made a great contribution to Wayfarer for about a year and a half.
He might be on vacation. He might be on a sick leave (there's a pandemic after all). Might be something else. He has got his reasons for sure.
Personally I don't think we're entitled to the staff's personal lives. We'll know when it's relevant for us to know.
Taking time to kick back and ensure his mental health is okay after having to deal with these forums probably.
They could make an AR game based on this! Think along the lines of Where's Wally/Waldo, but using real world environments and Giffard as the main character (as he isn't copyrighted material that I'm aware of).
Silliness aside, I'm assuming he's got some time off and that he's hopefully enjoying it.
Now we need a scavenger hunt to find Giffard.
Go to Wayspot xy and find ..... to get to ....
There you need to use the codeword "Wheres Gif?" to open the next door
Giffard is in holidays and no one can find him xD
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego AR would be a great idea.
Really, where are any of the wayfarer team they've gone really quiet some the start of the year (could understand the first week but now I'd be wanting them to return lol)
Thanks for your concerns, everyone! He's well and will be back soon :)
Glad to know. Hope you share the image on the Niantic Forum Staff WhatsApp. 📱
It would be nice if he could come back in good health.
I was worried because of Casey's case before.
Soon, or Niantic-Soon(TM)? :P
Sorry for bothering you and the team, but did any of you @NianticAtlas @NianticVK have authorities to ban members from this forum?
Vietnam abusers are kinda annoying right now, but no actions were taken against them.
I don't really understand the point of asking the Wayfarer team in this thread.
Can you please do it by creating a thread or a new thread about the abusive behavior in Vietnam?
This thread was closed when Giffard replied that he was going to come back fine, but I still think it's wrong to use this thread to make a request.
Also, from what I've observed of you, you immediately try to use a magic wand, but a magic wand can only be effective if it is used at the correct TPO.
I'm sure Niantic's Wayfarer team will take care of it without you telling them.
Thank you everybody for your concern, I am blessed to be a part of this amazing community! 😃
Some of you correctly guessed I was away for a while and now I am back on duty.
I am currently going through all the discussions/ reports where it needs our attention (which hasn't been addressed yet) and will simultaneously flag/ look into them.
Good to see you back,👍
Welcome back. Hope you enjoyed your time off .... sooooo, any idea when appeals will actually start being done 😅😅
Yeah, yeah we get that.
The important question is…did the meme at least make you chuckle. 😆
The same answer to the same question😉 Jokes aside, I understand the seriousness of this matter and have escalated it to the concerned team already.
Wish you could have seen me grinning! The meme you shared was funny indeed and NianticAtlas added the last bit to it. 😂
Welcome back @NianticGiffard, I hope you had a good festive period and new year, and that you've been enjoying a break from the forum :)
Back for another Tour of Duty. Brave man........
Welcome back, @NianticGiffard .
A belated Happy New Year to you.
