    Alright, we all need to chill here because it's getting ridiculous. I'm not a fervent defendor of Niantic communication but @NianticCasey-ING info is pretty clear:

    • Timing out on a review doesn't affect your rating or cooldown period. Unless we gather evidence there's a bug somewhere specifically tied to this change and not outstanding, already documented bugs, we have no reason to think this isn't true.
    • A timed out review is simply put back onto of the reviewing pool.

    There are numerous (and quite frankly unacceptable) ongoing bugs on the platform right now -'no new nomination to review', unwarranted cool downs, rating fluctuations, nomination limbo... but there's nothing that seem to indicate this makes the situation worse, just confusing at first.

    To everyone freaking out about not unreviewed submissions, think of it that way: you play a game where you draw cards from the top of the game, if it's a spade or club, you put it on a left pile, if it's a diamond or heart, you put it on a right pile (a very dull game I know). Whenever you stop playing, any card you draw but hasn't sorted out is put back on the top of the deck and another player take your seat. Now, the fact you have seen the top card before stopping or not doesn't change anything; the possibly hung card will be immediately dealt to the next player in line. It's the same with a timed out review: no nomination is at risk to be stuck in limbo because of it. It's the same situation as before, yet no one was stressing about having reviewers, through a stroke of bad luck, collectively stopping reviewing before hitting the same nomination.

    Now, Casey, this should be the definitive proof we need more transparency and consistency about how the platform works. This should have been a minor, barely noticeable UI change yet everyone is freaking out because the rating system is such an obscure, almost esoteric blackbox any knowledge about its inner working is closer to superstition than real certainty. The lack of transparency isn't making the system abuse-proof -just look at the massive fake nominations ring you busted out in Belgium a few months ago- it just makes it stressful for your good-willed users to operate.

    Description of the issue: I've been getting a ton of captchas. But when I finished my reviewing section, Wayfarer asked me to do a captcha, and then after confirming the captcha funneled me another candidate to review! Naturally I had to do it... Is this normal behaviour?

    I have no idea why this was merged with this post (as it has to do with Captchas), but I just had the occurrence where after I hit "Submit and finish", it gave me a captcha with the stupid select the squares with traffic lights things (it kept cycling for three times), and then led me back home.

    There should be no need to do another captcha just to STOP.
