Does the Wayfarer team even Wayfarer?
Gonna slip this last question in before they close. It goes back to this post actually, where Tintino's nomination during the Pokemon GO Fest London was showcased.
Now I appreciate that there is some involvement within the actual product that one is managing the community. However, I'd like to know to the extent that the team uses Wayfarer. Like how many things have you reviewed and submitted personally? Was the nomination
that was definitely pre-selected for the showcase the only one you've submitted? Have you contributed with reviews to help whittle down the local queues? Have you (if you've reviewed) experienced the same growing pains and inconveniences that the community has been reporting for months (the location accuracy one is a huge bug bear). And why does it seem that some of the decisions that some of the staff make seem so incredibly out of line with the mission of Wayfarer?
I appreciate that the product lead and community managers of Ingress (Brian Rose and Thia) play their game quite a lot, who are a bit more in-tune with the community's concerns and bugs, which are only hindered by the size of their development team. ace has bronze recon, which is better than nothing. But back to the Wayfarer team, do they Wayfind like the rest of us?
