Me, when looking at 2/3 of the selected winner posts xD
How will the fast-tracked appeals be rolled out? Will we have some sort of marker to choose which appeal gets fast-tracked, or will it be random or even FIFO? The appeal I'm most anxious to see re-evaluated is actually my most recent. Will we get to choose?
No offense but some of you should really try to be less toxic for everything the Wayfarer team does. I came on here to congratulate the winners and everything I read is envy.
Sooo, congrats to the winners! I've seen some really cool Wayspots/group photos!
Agree. It's nice to see a lot of involvement and wayspots from all over the world. I'd like to see a random T-Rex in a farm, or a colour-changing eye that eerily looks like the Enlightened logo. And nice to see people hanging out together.
Although the Twitter challenge is a bit of a curveball in terms of development, I do hope some developmental work starts from this point onwards.
I don't want my voice to be seen as toxic to the winners. They followed the rules. But I want Niantic to understand that pitting us against each other and granting no rewards to the people who tried just as hard as the "winners" is toxic to the whole community. 100% guarantee I won't participate in something like this again. I only participated this time because I was with my Wayfarer group and I wanted rewards for them.
That's a liberal use of the words 'a lot'.
This didn't engage anyone apart from a very small minority who are already engaged in Wayfarer anyway.
And we've seen a person that is banned in this community forum that got two prices.
It talks a lot about how Niantic treats the community.
No worries, I’ll login to twitter
Good point though 😅 Well, I guess Niantic doesn't really want to exclude people, even if they have severe history of abuse
I understand your concern, it would be nice to appreciate everyone's entries
Now that they've played with Twitter, how about an actual Wayfarer challenge?
Part 1: Do at least 100 reviews in a week. Prize: free extra upgrade.
Part 2: Scan any Wayspot at least 10 times. Prize: free extra upgrade.
Part 3: Get at least one nomination approved. Prize: free extra upgrade.
If you do all 3: Prize: free extra appeal.
Can I stack the second one and do my nearby Portals 400 times?
Thw problem with number 3 is, for some people, they would be waiting 2 years 🤣🤣
Well, I participated in the Criteria Challenge, but didn't win any rewards because I wasn't confused about the right criteria. It was disappointing, but those were the rules I agreed to. Should I feel guilty about receiving a single second-place prize for this latest contest, in which I submitted my best efforts for all three parts? Maybe not, but in this thread I kinda feel as if I should.
I hate to be that person, but....has anyone received their rewards yet? On the 21st I was told "next week" but nope, nothing.
NianticTintino replied to my DM on Mon, 24 Oct 2022 18:50 (UTC). It has not been read since then.
I have only submitted 4 of 11 Appeals Fast Tracks yet.
New Wayspot is unlikely to be ready in time for Dratini's Community Day 🤷🏻♀️
Wait, have the winners not received their rewards yet?
Well, not me, anyway....don't know about the rest.
In late July, at an event in Munich, you could pay for 7 random submissions (new nom, text edit, photo, loc chg) to be reviewed by Niantic. Whoever participated has STILL not seen their Wayspots. Or so I've heard. Niantic doesn't say anything.
It's a **** ****. It feels very personal to us, but not to them. Try to lower your expectations so they won't be hurt. I know it's hard when you're passionate about something that should be creative and fun.
That's awkward. I hope you guys will get them soon.
We are still waiting to hear about how to submit fast track appeals. And whomever runs the Twitter hasn't answered me yet. Is that @NianticTintino-ING? Or does somone else run it?
Yep and that's what's confusing me - will they randomly choose an existing appeal from my list, or can I choose? If the latter, will they contact me here on the Forum or via Twitter? If the latter of the two, why no response to my query in the open DM we have? This is a new type of reward, and I have no idea what form it will take or if I should be watching for more info.
