Some of you may have seen a "Wayfarer Maintenance In Progress" message show up. Wayfarer is back up and you should be able to access it now.
Was this an intended shut down or a bug?
My profile is still reset, missing all of my 200+ nominations, and 10,000+ agreements. However I am able to submit now without taking the test? But since the profile is reset it still wants a test to review again. No clue.
It still seems to be unstable for me @NianticTintino - I can load the help page, but on all other pages I get the Niantic logo as if it's trying to load the page but it never does, and attempting to access the settings page logs me out.
Issues are back - any update on the situation?
We are aware that Wayfarer is having issues again. We are on it and will keep you all updated.
Was this scheduled maintenance? Or did something break?
Just a quick update. Yesterday, the Wayfarer website experienced some issues causing it to come down. We became aware of this issue, tried addressing it to the point where we thought it was resolved, however, there are some areas still being affected. We are still investigating this further and we’ll keep you updated.
In the meantime, here is what you can expect:
As mentioned above, our team is hard at work investigating this issue and working to get all areas of Wayfarer back up and running.
Thank you for your patience!
OK, figured it out. UI for 'what is it' needs a better description because you have to tick yes/no for all the available options, not just select the one that's most suitable.
Intended, we ran into traffic issues
Good news! We have Wayfarer Onboarding back up and working. Meaning that new players who meet our criteria will now go through the onboarding process before being able to nominate and review. This completes our maintenance work on this issue and will be closing the discussion later today.
Thanks again for all your patience.
Thanks for the updates.
Being as open and transparent as possible is great for the whole community!
I recently attempted to submit a nomination at my local Catholic Church. After taking all the photos and typing in descriptions, I was asked to categorize the stop. I couldn't access the drop-down menu and it wouldn't accept my typed-in answer. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Not your fault, it's a bug: “Categorize location” doesn’t work on iPhone — Wayfarer (nianticlabs.com)
I'm not on iPhone. It's my Moto E4.
Seems like it affects multiple devices...or even the specific accounts. A person said they tried on four different mobile phones and it didn't work
I was finally able to resolve the issue after an update. I can submit again. Yay!
