4 gym and 4 stops in cell 14, is it a bug?
MessiPy-ING Posts: 122 ✭✭✭
A few hours ago 2 stops became gym and I see similar examples in other areas but several cells 14 with more than 40 stops still have 3 gym normally ... There was some change without realizing it, although I see it as a good change .. .. What do you think?

I think it isn't a Wayfarer issue.
The same here, reports of cells s14 have 4 gyms. looks like a bug.
The bug could be related to the number of photos. All reports I saw from Germany until now involved new gyms, that had more than 1 photo ....
Where are these gyms popping up at? Europe? Australia? North America?
Hope it spreads
It's everywhere. Reporting from New York right now.
New pokestops in a cell with a stop already and new gyms popping up out of the blue for no reason.
The new pokestops were in Ingress by the way, so I think that's related. Perhaps a rule change from Niantic.
Old portals have many photos, I do not think that is the case or else the capitals of each country would have already filled with gym
It is probably related to the release of the new game that just came out.
Seeing evidence of new pokestops appearing in double portal cells, and new gyms appearing. Happening in Winnipeg, Canada.
I hope this is permenent. It seems Niantic may have finally seen the light. I think this is cause for celebration, so I might treat myself with some celebratory cake later.
Bei mir im Umkreis gibt es 12 neue Arenen plötzlich.
Somebody in my local community/mayor said that something with one photo has become a gym. However, I have a pending photo submission on that POI.
weird new gyms appearing here as well, not more than 3 per S14 cell
got new stops that totally break the normal rules, have we changed cell size for Pokémon
2 new gyms spotted here (UK) that were previously stops and in cells with gyms already
Yesterday in my city also spawned a lot of new gyms and some pokestops, there is 6 gyms on the same cell s14, came here for info since no one has published anything at niantic or even content creators..
New gyms and a couple of new pokestops .... but don't tell niantic, just incase it's a bug and they remove what is actually a good thing
Now new photos in POIs can become gyms?😨
The stop outside my house turned into a Gym overnight, and there are no new stops in the area. If it is a bug, imagine the screams when all of them turn back into stops.
Please let it be a feature, please let it be a feature... 😔
I have to wonder if this has anything to do with them “Investigating” this months-old bug:
tl;dr: since switching to Lightship, when Niantic internally reviews a nomination it will NOT appear in Ingress. The workaround players (not Niantic) discovered was that Liking a photo would force a sync and the portal would appear, but in a cell with another poke stop/gym already that cannot work.
So… by throwing a bunch of extra stops/gyms into cells, NOW we can Like some of those missing pois doing all the broken synchronization work for them? But at this point it still feels like a big “oops” on their part.
Where I am locally, I live where I can see about half of my dense downtown area. I see one new Poke stop, and one newly converted gym. The stop was a longtime ingress portal, pre-wayfarer, in the same cell as a gym. But a neighbouring cell with a gym and two-three other portals did NOT get an extra stop too. Well, not yet? But regardless, that new stop seems to have triggered the creation of another stop-to-gym creation.
I’m personally aware of two other spots where my submissions hadn’t become portals, and they were both blocked from the workaround, so I’ll be reporting in later to see if anything happened there too.
But even if I’m not lucky in that regards, it’s still an opportunity for y’all to help flesh out the Ingress playboard; if any of those newly generated pois were internal Niantic reviews, then Liking the photo will be beneficial.
The stops I have had edits too still have not changed even though I liked the photos
The gyms I see have not appeared from missing Ingress portals or photo upvotes: most are quite old Pokestops that have converted to gyms without any new objects nearby that might have triggered such a change. It appears that this was a completely random set of conversions with no immediately identifiable cause.
can someone from niantic pls tell us something about it?
We were 5 stops away to get a brand new gym..
Yesterday evening an older stop turned into a gym, not a popular stop at all.. there were much better candidadates (with even more pics) as a park with plenty of stops around and still no gyms.
Interesting enough this new gym isn't the oldest. The park one is 8 years old, this one maybe 3 and it doesn't make sense because it's the only gym isolated from all the others!
Same thing happened to our community in Ontario, Canada. One stop about 2 years old suddenly became a gym and an ingress portal about the same age, became a stop, both within the same gym cell. The gym has a new picture, that, as far as I know, had never been included in the original stop, as the stop (now gym) was an art exhibit, and the new picture is for the 2nd piece in a separate 18 cell, not the actual location. And even with this new stop from ingress, there's still only 18 points within the 14 cell, not the 20 needed to make a new gym, although there is at least one more ingress portal within that cell that hasn't come into Pokemon yet. Maybe the cell mechanics is still counting that, because it still exists in Pokemon, it's just not visible.
but it’s only in some areas
Doesn't seem like Ingress portals not shown in Pokemon Go are the cause: my regular play cell has 9 pokestops and 2 gyms, but 24 Ingress portals. No new objects have appeared there as of yet.
