Pretty cool getting to see Tintino out there, even if the line was really long. Come back anytime, ya'll are always welcome here!
I'm super disappointed. Niantic announces and then just goes to the front door. Niantic was also announced for other cities, but then they only set up a small tent with 3 students handing out a postcard and a sticker. Honestly, don't say anything beforehand, then it could be a surprise. But not like this. Or you can send a larger team so that others outside of the US have the chance to personally communicate with Niantic. I'm happy for everyone who was in Dallas, but all around it was a complete letdown.
the vast majority of people at klyde warren park in dallas appeared to be pogo-only players. there were some ingress players, but they didn't make themselves as well-known. as for pikmin bloom.... i doubt many people knew about it, lol.
i don't think niantic finished setting up their booth until nearly an hour into the event. i got there around 2:25pm and got in line. they didn't start handing stuff out until around 3, iiirc. there appeared to only be a couple employees and tintino. there was a pretty long line to get niantic "swag" and they ran out of stuff early, but that was to be expected.
later in the day, tintino took a break and started asking those waiting in line / in the park trivia questions for free stuff. the questions ranged from pokemon go facts, niantic facts, and wayfarer facts. there might have been some other categories as well. i managed to answer the 3 wayspot criteria question and got a niantic ball cap, and @Ferrothorn88-ING won a niantic "meet you out there" t-shirt for answering where niantic's headquarters is (san francisco). a lot of the prizes were cards with a one-time use pokemon go promo code for an incubator, incense and lure module. for swag, there were wayfarer stickers, wooden niantic logo keychains, niantic button pins, niantic logo iron-on patches, and niantic mascot captain doty cards. there might have been some other things as well.
i and a few other wayfarers did get to chat with tintino for a bit, which was awesome. it was great meeting you, @NianticTintino! please remember to accept all our pogo friend requests 😂 hope you enjoyed dallas even though the weather was kinda gross.
Next time, the Northeast! :D
Crossing my fingers they do. We shared the feedback and I'm optimistic about the impact it'll have for the future Community Days. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Likewise! I had a blast. Thank you for showing up and saying hi.
Hi there @BochumJules-PGO,
Thanks for your feedback, i'll be sure to share it with our appropriate team. Thanks for attending and hope you enjoy the Community Day's to come.
Thanks for coming! I agree, there were a lot of Pokémon GO players at the park, I think only a few who I asked mentioned also playing Ingress or any of our other games, but I was happy to meet them as well :) I apologize about the late set up, I've shared that information with the appropriate team already with timestamps as well.
I'm glad folks enjoyed the little trivia, I tried to make sure to cover all games throughout the line 😅 glad you and Ferrothorn88-ING won some of the swag. Also, just accepted all of the invites from that day, sorry it took me a while but at the end of the event had to rush to catch my flight back. As for the weather, I was just happy it wasn't boiling hot, wasn't too bad tbh.
@NianticTintino, it was very nice to meet you at the Dallas event! I thought all Niantic peeps were very friendly, which was great! Loved your trivia, it was engaging and fun. Hopefully you guys are making notes on improving the logistics for the next time. My feedback and a big wish would be that you find a way to separate handing out the swag (the line for which was quite long!) and just hanging out and "being social" with the Explorers. Until then, and meet you out there!
@NianticTintino Now that community day is over and this post will be permanently irrelevant, don't forget to unpin it.
Unfortunately based on Ingress agent feedback it doesn’t seem like they did. It also seems many didn’t know what Wayfarer was at other locations and thought it was solely for Pokémon GO.
If you can feedback, that would be great.
don't worry about it! it's understandable. i still had a good time. hope your flight went okay.
don't worry about the friend requests either; i was joking, lol. but thank you for accepting. now i have a celebrity as a pogo friend! 😊
@NianticTintino if you are interested in reading some feedback from Ingress agents im leaving this links as reference.
Also, i understand this kind of was also a Wayfarer Community Day inside the Niantic Community Day. It would be great if for Wayfarers on the next one there is a specific challenge for Wayfarer with Specific Rewards. (something like Increase in XX your reviews, or Submit XX Wayspots during event time) and inform Wayfarers before the event.
"Crossing fingers" - seriously?
@NianticTintino @NianticGiffard can you just please unpin this thread and switch it into May CD one?
Also you can remove some irrelevant comments here.
Niantic will not answer when your particular way spot will be reviewed.
The same is true for the nominations you have appealed to Niantic.
Niantic receives nominations appealed to it from wayfinders around the world, which it reviews in turn and sends back the results.
If you want the results sooner, you can submit a new nomination to get the results faster.
Just curious; who makes decisions like that for PoGo and Ingress?
