How long does it usually take Niantic to vote on a submission. I have one with the Niantic logo and says in voting but has been like that since March 13. Was just curious of timing
It used to be fairly reliable that they'd resolve your nomination within a week or two at most, but I'm aware of at least one nomination that's been in Niantic Voting since February 6th.
If you mean standard, it used to be quick, if you mean appeal, it also used to be quick whe it went into voting, but I've hot one in voting since october
I currently have 3 in Niantics voting. It’s been around 2 weeks for one and a week for the other 2. I’ve had 3 accepted through normal voting in this time taken a few hours, yet Niantics can’t make a decision on an outdoor gym in a recreation ground which is clearly visible on streetview and encourages exercise so meets criteria. It really shouldn’t take that long to push a yes button. Yet they can do these pointless in house reviews and ignore appeals that are a year old.
Wow, good to know these reviews aren’t fast. Just got accepted to the wayfarer program and live in an area that hasn’t been marked or really worked on in years from the amount of pokestops that are now out of business. Made about 6 submissions today of basic things such as beaches and pools, so ill keep you all updated on the return time
I’m tempted to submit mine again sees who’s faster. Community review or the sloths of Niantics
Newer nominations taken to Niantic voting are still randomized though. Without upgrades, nominations taken to Niantic voting are usually faster than the community, even if the nominations are stuck in queue for 2 years before being taken into Niantic voting.
It took about 3 weeks for them to finish reviewing with one of mine
So I submitted my nominations again just to see how quick they are going to be and they have taken them both again into Niantics voting! Ha ridiculous. One is upgraded. They just need to hurry up. The community doesn’t take this long. And mine are really simple easy ones to say yes too. In my area a nomination never takes so long.
So its been a few days and ive received 0 updates regarding my 9 uploads. Alot of them were common things like public pools, beaches, and hiking trails. Threw in 1 “unique business” to see if I had the criteria right….and we wait lol
Also quick question and not to derail, but where can I check the status of my uploads? I feel like i should be able to check it here but ive also received no emails or messages regarding my stops so I want to make sure im checking in the right places
Awesome thanks! Have 3 in voting, the rest in queue.
You need to earn upgrades by reviewing. What’s your unique business? A restaurant or cafe?
I now have 8 nominations in Niantics review. All in same area. What’s going on?? They don’t need to review ALL my nominations. Get my appeals looked at.
A locally owned ice cream and bakery. Its decorated outrageously with tons of bright pink and stands out dramatically in the shopping center its in. Plus, theyre a newer business who I haven’t really seen advertise the store, so its still unknown to a lot of local players
Also, yes im currently working on reviews too for the upgrades. Its just a bit of an odd system in general. The “upgrades” being our only incentive to review other’s work since the term “upgrade” would imply its in game, but no, its just to get the charity work you’ve already submitted at the head of the queue, which can still take weeks for voting. But thats what i have to remind myself, its charity work at the end of the day, but considering how important the work we do is for the infrastructure of Niantic, id assume we’d get more than the ability to push some reviews up as a reward
On another note. I now have 9 in Niantics voting. NINE and 2 in normal voting. There has to be a glitch somewhere surly this is meant to be a push on appeals not recently submitted nominations. It's getting ridiculous now.
Just to say ambassadors have asked about this.
Out of interest roughly what area are these in and is there anything vaguely similar between them. @PeteC303-ING
Most are in Capel-le-Ferne near Folkestone. They are outdoor gyms and MUGAs. Some are duplicates because I thought I’d test to see if I could beat the Niantics review lol. But they were scooped up too. One is in Hythe and also an outdoor gym in a park. And one seen this morning in Folkestone is a remembrance garden. All nominations that the community could quite easily review and approve without having to put any effort in. All in the correct place obviously and meet criteria. Been waiting almost a month for one of them but I usually get my results within a day.
Thanks for that additional info.
Just an update, the nomination I mentioned here that was submitted by my friend was accepted in the early hours of this morning. So 7½ weeks in Niantic Voting.
For comparison, I submitted a nomination on March 19th and it went through regular voting and was accepted on March 28th. So nearly 6× as long for the Niantic vote.
thanks for that info.
Niantic should definitely review upgraded things at high priority. Being taken into Niantic voting should not penalize the submitter in terms of review speed. (I'll allow an exception for people who use certain keywords to force Niantic voting. That's slimy.)
Currently have 3 in community voting and 2 in niantic voting. Lets see how this goes.
Well I’d thought I’d come back with another update 😂 I sent my pictures to my friend (yes my friend) and he submitted a nomination for me. So I’ll wait a few years for these to be duplicated. Told you it shouldn’t take so long for a member of staff to press a ‘yes’ button on a nomination. Surly it doesn’t go round a number of staff before it’s accepted 🤷🏻♂️ it’s a yes/no for Niantics surly.
This is just weird.
is the text in description and supplementary the same and can you paste here please.
Yes pretty much the same. I’ve used Zip, Capel, Wire, Recreation Ground. Funnily enough my friend called it a Zipline not Wire. It doesn’t explain why the Outdoor Gyms have been taken in. Although one in Capel is called “Capel Outdoor Gym”. One in Hythe simply Oaklands Park Outdoor Gym. And my other one is Folkestone Remembrance Garden. Of all the years doing this I’ve only had about 4/5 taken into Niantics voting and one at a time.
Thanks for further info.
