No in-game map (yet) - New Neighborhood
I recently joined Wayfarer and I would like to receive some feedback on this. I am aware that the main part of my question does not really apply to the reviewing procedure per se, but I am not sure where else to ask this. Therefore:
I have nominated a Wayspot in a new neighborhood close to where I frequently play (and many of the people I play with live). Recently, at least part of the map appeared on google maps (and street view), but there is no in-game map (yet). Do you know how this may affect the reviews, acceptance and whether it would become a portal or a stop?
Also, since I'm new to this, I would really appreciate some feedback on my nomination.
Knuffeldieren = Stuffed animals (but would literally translate as cuddle animals)
Twee aaistenen in de vorm van een haas en een beer. = Two cuddly stones in the shape of a hare and a bear.
The lack of an accurate in-game map shouldn't make any difference since Wayfarer reviewers refer to the live version of Google Maps. So, as long as it's visible on there, you should be fine.
The nomination itself seems fine, provided the animals aren't temporary or moveable.
Edit: Going a little off-topic here, but if you want to get the in-game updated then you'll need to update the corresponding area on Open Street Map. Eventually, PoGo will sync itself up but I don't think they do that on a schedule.
Thank you for your response. They are very permanent and placed as part of the design of the new neighborhood (and mentioned on the neighborhood website).
Off-topic: The neighborhood is available in both open street map and google maps. Hope they will update sometime soon.
When what I want to nominate isn't showing on Google Maps yet, I use the Google Street View app to make a photosphere. I am not a technically savvy person, so it isn't hard to do if I can do it. Just take it there and upload it later on wifi.
I would also put a link to the mention in the neighborhood website in the supporting information - is that the link you included? If the nomination has not gone into voting yet, you can still edit it in wayfarer.
Thank you! Most of the neighborhood is already showing. Sometimes unfinished, but most structures are already clearly showing up. I have that link in my supporting info.
My comment with image does not seem to get through, but I wanted to thank you for your feedback. I used it, and applied my upgrade, and it got accepted! Thanks a lot!
Thanks a lot for your feedback! I used it and also received and my hard earned upgrade. Very happy with my first accepted nomination.
Yeah, I saw this one. It was clearly shown on streetview. No problem at all.
@Hamson67-PGO Thank you
Further update: I friend who plays Ingress told me it almost immediately appeared in Ingress, and the next day it also appeared in PoGo! The people in the new neighborhood were really excited about it (all talking about throwing a party to celebrate the fact that their neighborhood is now "part of PoGo").
