Agreed. I have only done a handful of reviews for Spain challenge. I don’t see the point. It’s becoming very obvious that we are not a “valued community”, we are just cheap labor, that they do not even care enough about to pay the “salary” we agreed to when we started reviewing.
It has been over two weeks since this post was made, and the problem has persisted for over a month. Has the team made any updates in fixing this issue, or are we to presume the issue is related to the current global challenge and not going to see a fix until after completion?
Will there be any compensation for Wayfarers who wasted their Upgrades during the past month?
This is the worst fail in the history of Wayfarer and OPR, yet I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for any compensations.
Remember when nominations available went into negative numbers for weeks back in spring 2019 when everyone got ”bonus nominations”. NIA even promised compensations back then, but those never happened.
I am so bummed out this isn't fixed yet. Any updates?
The challenge has been a positive experinced for me and many others, but if this isnt fixed soon, I think the attitude will change quickly.
Most people participated to get upgrades as rewards.
It's like paying people in monopoly money. Without functional upgrades the upgrades are completely without value.
I worked my **** off running around tracking down quality nominations and doing hundreds of Wayfarer reviews and filtering through utter bull garbage. In my entire time Wayfaring I've only had 6 nominations reviewed in my city (0.00017% of reviews) and I've heard from folks that they've made submissions in my area (some of which I'm looking forward to denying for meeting rejection criteria) which have been sitting in voting for months. Some of my submissions are years old, and if I don't use upgrades they have zero hope of being seen. However, when I upgrade they sit for over a month in the queue.
This is not a terribly difficult problem to fix and Niantic is deliberately misleading us on the issue after weeks of refusing to acknowledge it and now nearly 3 weeks of refusing to provide an update.
think people are finally realizing that to niantic they are just a slave. Working for free to support a multi billion dollar company for what? A broken game 😂
Thank you for your patience while we worked on this fix. The Wayfarer team has applied a fix and we can already see the fix having a positive impact on Upgraded resolutions. With the Wayfarer challenge over, it should now take a couple of days before Upgraded submissions return back to normal resolution times. We will continue to monitor the progress and keep you updated.
Thank you for the update. Would you please clarify that this fix is going to impact previously-upgraded nominations, and not just future upgrades?
I took the part that says "we can already see the fix having a positive impact on Upgraded resolutions." to mean that they can see the solution working on submissions that are already upgraded.
Agreeing with @Glawhantojar-PGO the fix should fix every upgrades including the ones still in the queue or being voted upon.
Thanks a lot for your clarification!
Yay i can finally use my 360 upgrades
Wish we could use gifs here. I wanted to use a B99 one.
Thanks for the update.
While my upgraded nomination was sitting in queue, someone else's nomination only few feet away from mine got approved, which made my upgrade become just a waste. Can I get my upgrade back? @NianticTintino-ING @Nianthib I wouldn't have upgraded mine if I saw someone else's go through first.
Happened to me but it was rejected during the challenge and someone elses was approved with a lower quality, go figures.
Same happened to me, plus the one upgrade that just languished for weeks until it completely it's normal resolution time as if I hadn't upgraded it. Really would appreciate those of us impacted being compensated properly for our lost rewards
Are affected players going to be gifted an upgrade as an apologize?
one upgrade in voting for a month. just finally tried another upgrade and it's still in queue after hours.
normally, it would go into voting within a hour at most and resolved within a couple hours.
normal resolution time for my area is several months without an upgrade. so im begging for help to have these upgrades I worked hard to earned moved through. as I'm not sure the fix is helping them.
This would be really great if they would compensate people for their wasted time/stress. It takes a truly significant amount of work to earn an upgrade, and having upgrades completely wasted like this is awful.
I have 2 Upgrades which have been in voting for weeks now, and two upgrades which still haven't entered voting even after yesterday's alleged fix. It's extremely frustrating knowing the work that goes into Wayfaring when the only reward is non-functional. People need these Upgrades to improve the QoL in the respective Niantic games they play.
From my own perspective, I'm limiting my review time to just a few a day until I actually see progress for myself and hear from others that their experience improved. I've been wayfaring about 5 weeks now, used an upgrade that's been stuck a month, have one saved and close to getting another. That's a long winded way of saying I'm matching my wayfaring with Niantic's perceived responsiveness to problems.
I just used an upgrade. I’ll post results.
i did today too. still "in queue" after the normal amount of time it would've been resolved in the past.
Upgraded the Bocce Ball Court 2 weeks ago, the playground yesterday. Neither one been resolved yet.
Nothing here either including ones which have been in voting for weeks and ones which have been upgraded since this announcement. I reckon that they have a 6-week backlog of upgrades which need sorting through before this becomes functional again.
We need another event to fix the problems created by the previous event. 😫
I actually had two nominations in the same area in voting at the same time, one upgraded, one not. The non upgraded one just resolved and the upgraded one is still in voting.
You had a non-upgraded nomination get resolved!??? Have never heard of that happening where I'm from.
I had an upgraded resolved yesterday but I am in the challenge area. I am getting my subs from this week getting in voting by themselves, not the usual here. So I don't think this is the fix working.
24 hours in, upgraded one already in voting, btw.
upgraded from 2 days ago, still in queue. the other stuck in voting for month plus.
