Clarifying Edits and Agreements impact on Medals
We’ve seen some confusion on Wayfarer Medals and on Agreements in general and wanted to clarify.
The agreements section of your Wayfarer profile displays all of your agreements on player nominated Wayspots, even those made when you are not in good (yellow) or great (green) standing. Only nomination agreements made while in good or great standing will contribute to your progress towards the medal, which could contribute to a possible display difference between your medal progress and Wayfarer profile.
Agreements on Edits will ALSO contribute to your medal progress in Pokémon GO (and will soon contribute towards the Recon medal in Ingress). Similarly, only Edit agreements made while in good or great standing will contribute to your progress towards the medal. Edit agreements are not currently displayed on your profile, so this is why you may see a higher number of agreements crediting towards your Medal than are currently visible in Wayfarer. Please keep in mind that this currently only applies to the Pokémon GO Wayfarer Medal, and the Ingress team is working to make its Recon medal consistent with the Pokémon GO Wayfarer Medal.
We have also heard your feedback that you are looking for more information about agreements rating and fluctuations in recent weeks and we are working on an update that clarifies these for you. Stay tuned!
