Accepted Wayspots Not Showing In Ingress or Pokemon Go Days After Approval

Whoab0t-INGWhoab0t-ING Posts: 66 ✭✭✭

Hello! Apologies if this has been brought to the attention of the team, but I and several others are having an issue - wayspots approved by the community days ago are not showing up in either Ingress or Pokemon Go.

These were approved over the previous weekend during an Ingress event, and despite being approved, have not synced. However, wayspots approved in the last few days of the week have synced with no issue, for the most part (I've had one two that have not, but maybe 10 that have).

The missing POI were submitted in both Ingress and Pokemon Go, so I do not believe it's an issue with a specific game so much as the network.

In short: Some wayspots accepted over the last week or two are not showing up in Ingress nor Pokemon Go, despite having the space to come online.

    I have the same issue with my recent stop submitted July 22 and Accepted Aug 1.

    We understand, that we don't submit Portals or Pokestops, only Wayspots - that may or may not appear in any game. But if we are to submit and rate Wayspots for yours Lightship that won't appear anywhere, then either pay us for it or rate it ourselves.

    I also had an appealed wayspot approved two days ago - but it’s not in Ingress (where it was originally submitted years ago), and I never got an email regarding the acceptance (but it says accepted in Wayfarer).

    That, and the POI accepted during that weekend, two weeks ago, are still not in any game.

    I noticed in the Ingress forums, many others have had issues from this one weekend - edits, submissions, and deleted POI from July 29 to August 1 have not synced into Ingress, but everything before has, and everything after has. Some thought it was Ingress only, but I had Go submissions approved that weekend that never showed. Some folks found a workaround, if a submission created a Pokestop, they could thumb up the photo in PoGo, and it would appear in Ingress - very similar to the workaround to get a photo to appear on a portal in Ingress.

    I would have to assume Niantic is aware of this waypoint bug/appeal sync bug, but strange it hasn't been mentioned @NianticTintino
