Waypoints not appearing in Pokemon Go
Most likely this will reach out to nobody and will achieve absolutely nothing, but I'm trying anyways.
Pokemon Go has a system hidden from players. Google has a library called S2, which covers the surface of the Earth with diamonds. Of all the wayspots available in Niantic games, Pokemon go only gets a subset of them, limited by level 17 "cells" of that library. This leads to a number of problems:
-Pokemon go players are frustrated that they have less wayspots available in their games
-Pokemon go players actively dislike ingress and their playerbase because they do not have this limitation
-Pokemon go players are discouraged to submit new waypoints because they may not appear in their game
-Pokemon go players are encouraged to find loopholes to try to game the system so they can have wayspots appear in their game too, that other games have by default.
The last point is a major problem for Wayfarer. A large number of pokemon go players are submitting location edit requests to move waypoints away from their real world location so that another one appears in their games. They are also encouraged to submit new waypoints away from their real world location, hoping that this way it appears in Pokemon go as well.
All of this could be prevented by removing this pointless antiquated limitation. Pokemon go players would be happy, because they would see a small increase of pokestops and/or gyms in their games. Reviewers would be happy because they would see much less location edits. Pokemon go submitters would be happy because they could submit without the fear of their nomination not appearing in their game. All submitters would be happy because of the reduced number of edits, their submissions would be voted for quicker. Niantic would be happy because they would cut down on the number of incorrect locations of waypoints and would have a much more accurate database.
The number of pokestops and/or gyms that would appear in Pokemon go this way would not be significant enough so that players would gain an unfair advantage. Mostly small towns where everything that can be nominated is in the main square would benefit a lot and would encourage much more players to play Pokemon go.
Thank you if you have read this far. You will most likely close this thread without escalating this issue. I'm sorry if this is the case, I'm not sure if there is anything more I can do.
