12k x 500 is 6 million. If every submission takes 60 reviews, which is probably highballing, we need spain to have 100k pending submissions for everyone to be able to get 500. We'll probably have to have a long tail of people who don't hit 500 because I suspect there fully isn't enough to go around.
I'm sorry, I might be missing something, but where did you get the data of the 12k reviewers? Seems a little far-fetched to me, according to the 4,654 total participants of the last challenge. And I don't really think most participants would try to reach the 500 reviews.
tintino posted stats for progress so far. The loot does look nicer than what I remember of the indonesia challenge, which probably goes a ways towards making more people want to join.
Even if it's a third as much, that's still about 30k, which we're getting close to burning through
Has anyone got nominations from Canary Islands?
Thank you, I totally missed it. Quite impressive, actually, I certainly didn't expect that. Let's just hope they fix everything soon!!
I still believe that (when everything's working as intended) everybody would get to the 500 reviews, you'll see 😉
The ambassadors are helping to monitor what is being reported and to raise issues.
I am having difficulty in getting reviews done so understand that issue well.
System is a bit faster now, but still, i cannot accept a Challenge to vote on Spanish Wayspots when there are only 10 Wayspots from Spain in 30 minutes.
I will sit here forever to get 500 resolved.
I’ve got that problem I reckon (keeping track manually) I’ve done 85 of which about 30 were from Spain - slow progress.
30k. Paldean Tauros please? @NianticTintino-ING
I think I'm at about the same, although I haven't been tracking them.
The upgrades are not much of a reward, it would be easier and quicker to walk to hatch 2 incubators worth of eggs and wait until after the challenge is finished to get 5 upgrades from UK reviewing.
I don't mind helping to clear the Spanish backlog but the whole reviewing system is slow and clunky at the moment with only 50% or less being from Spain.
I've actually had a lazy weekend. I'm opening Wayfarer to review between mewtoo raids, during commercials on TV, and while waiting for dinner to cook. I've managed around 1600 total reviews in the 10 or 15 minute shots at a time. Well Friday I reviewed hard, I have no clue how many are Spain, but I figure I'm around 500 Spain now. It hasn't been terrible by any means.
Well, my math was based on each submission needing 60 reviews and I'm pretty sure submissions take a lot less than that. I believe the range of submissions we'll eventually need in order for it to be literally possible for every participant to hit 500 is more in the 500k range. I don't know that the entirety of spain has actually submitted half a million waypoints. At the same time though, I do expect the bar to be lower because for anything there usually is a long tail of people who don't go for the highest tier. We're about halfway through and the thing says we're at 32k right now, so when we're done we'll have gone through enough to give what I estimate about 1/10 of participants the third tier of loot. Higher if niantic changes something to make spanish submissions show up more and our pace can accelerate.
Although, if there exists a scenario in which a change niantic makes makes the challenge end with more spanish submissions reviewed, that comes with the corollary implication that the difference in submissions reviewed would have gone unprocessed by the end of the global challlenge if niantic hadn't made the change, but if we finish the challenge with the system as it is currently and finish with all the spanish submissions processed then there wouldn't be any surplus submissions that would be additionally processed if niantic made changes to make spanish submissions more common. Actually, if we go from the premise that the spanish submissions are finite and lower in number than what is needed to give everyone the 500 milestone, we clearly would have enough to just wipe out the backlog. What would we do for the rest of the challenge if we actually wiped out all the spanish challenge reviews early and there just wasn't any left for the remaining 7 days?
Except it's not exactly 60 reviews, and none of us know the number tho.
I said 60 to give myself an easy number to work with that I was also sure would be a highball, because I'm fairly sure the actual number is below that
Yes plenty from Santa Cruz de Tenerife and surroundings plus some extra from GC and other islands.
As I remember from my visits the backlog there is way smaller than on mainland or Balearic islands since my submissions usually got reviewed in 2-3 weeks.
It is interesting that our experience is so similar. I have no interest in the community rewards - I can’t collect them as PTC login doesn’t allow use of the codes. So the only incentive for me is an upgrade and 1 upgrade is not worth this hassle. I do enjoy looking at the Spain submissions. The mix of good and bad has been fairly normal for me. The virtual tourism is fun and I love the creative graffiti. If you visited as an actual tourist ( it’s generally too hot for me) you would only see a fraction of interesting things compared to what I have encountered.
Definitely, I love going here
Or walking around Seville in 45°.... :D
The mural art is fun but like you said is only a fraction of amazing things to see.
You probably know but you can maybe link a Google account for login. I'm not sure how messy or tricky it can get though.
It won’t surprise you to know that I am not changing any emails etc on any Niantic game as I don’t trust them to not cause something bad to happen.
but it’s no big deal anyway…..I can use the codes to give away as prizes / consolation locally.
I don't blame you :D
Hopefully your kindness and generosity are rewarded with Ferrero Rocher by @NianticTintino-ING
18 in the UK.
6 in Spain.
3 in France.
Please send more reviews from Spain, it is really demotivating to have so few proposals from Spain compared to the first day.
And there is still the loading bug (have to wait 10s a least between the reviews) that didn't exist before the challenge
3k reviews completed for this challenge
Out of interest do you have your bonus location set to Spain @The26thDoctor-PGO
I do. In L'Escala on the east coast though which would account for the French reviews.
Thanks I picked Barcelona
Hi the ambassadors are picking up that the flow of reviews from Spain has slowed again, and we are raising the issue.
I still have 24 in queue and 26 in voting, submitted from Jan 2022 up to few months ago, and just got "Good job, come again later!" message for few minutes while reviewing. 👀
(Edit: i'm from Madrid)
Just how do I know how many reviews I've done as part of the Challenge without having to rely on external tools, like a notepad?
Thank you, the same as I see 👍
The loading time has increase as well (seeing the baloon bouncing).
