Updating Wayspot Photo
FullFeeder-PGO Posts: 60 ✭✭
Hello everybody, I submitted a public basketball court as a wayspot way back in 2021 and it only appeared on ingress beacuase of an S2 cell overlap with another wayspot tha was already in Pokémon GO, anyway this winter my local government did some maintaince work to public spaces including that basketball court and honestly it looks super cool now and I want to update the photo of that wayspot, however I can't from Pokémon Go and I don't really play ingress so I was wondering, is there another way I can submit an edit without having to play ingress?
No; the entire functionality of the submission and review system depends soley on the credibility of individuals and those whom have the jurisdiction to edit poké stops would be the people who do what you’re asking for.
is it you aren’t level high enough ?
If you can submit POI you should have the credibility to do it I believe. Level 37 to nominate and not positive but believe it is the same. Might be level 38 to edit.
Have you tried clicking the stop then clicking the top right arrow while you are on the stops screen where you would spin it and then clicking the circle with 3 dots in the top right corner once you are on the screen with a full screen size picture of the stop? That is how you get to the option of updating stops not from settings.
They’re saying it’s not a pokestop only a portal.
Maybe I didn't explained myself as clearly as I thought 😅, so let me try again, I nominated it from Pokémon GO (lvl 49), got it approved but only appeared on ingress, therefore I can't submit an edit myself from Pokémon Go and I don't play ingress, I solely have an account (lvl1) to have access to ingress intel, for accurate wayspot location purposes so I can't submit an edit from there either, so I was curious to know if there is a way I can request a photo update without having to level up my ingress account, like directly through wayfarer perhaps?
Gotcha. As far as pokemon go if it is not on the game map but shows on ingress or is on iitc there is nothing you can do except get mad 😂 as far as I know. Can only edit poi not showing on pogo by being level 12 ingress I believe.
If you send a new nomination it should be marked as a duplicate and the photo added to the existing Wayspot
This is very clever, a little wasteful, but it should work, ty
Use the Wayfarer app to submit a new picture. Can be done from any distance. I could do it if you share a photo
