Are we there yet?
Apologies for the delay. We are still working on confirming the final candidates. Believe me, I'm as excited to announce as you all are.
No need to wait... I'm ready.
Do we have a new estimated time for the announcement to tide us over?
When will you announce the final Wayfarer Ambassador candidates?
Should those who applied be checking their emails again? 😂
I hope ambasadors gets some kind of flair on the forum, with some kind of identifiable graphic/symbol. Some kind of image that would make it clear who is one despite language barriers.
I know you’ve all been waiting for this moment with great anticipation and believe me, the feeling is mutual. Since the early stages of planning for the Wayfarer Ambassadors Program, I’ve been filled with excitement for all of the amazingness that will come to us (you and the Wayfarer Team) through this collaboration. So, without further ado, please help me give a big warm welcome to our very first, global group of Wayfarer Ambassadors!
Hey, I’m Tntnnbltn from Australia. I first got involved in Wayfarer back in the Operation Portal Recon era, and have been submitting and reviewing for four years now.
I'm tehstone in Ingress and Pokémon GO. I've been nominating waypoints since 2014 and reviewing since 2017. For the past few years the Wayfarer community has been my online home and I'm excited to have a small role in shaping its future!
Hello all, Gendgi from the USA.
I'm a long time Pokémon GO fan and urban explorer based in Panama. Over time I've grown to become a fan of Ingress as I learned more about the Wayfarer platform. Wayfarer has made me visit new places and meet all kinds of people which is why I want to keep exploring.
Hello, I am fr34kz, I am Indonesian and currently reside in Bali. My first encounter with Niantic games was on the early release of Ingress back in 2013. I got the invite to the game from my boyfriend back then. At first I'm not really interested in the game but I always accompany him when he is playing, and just play as it is. That is until I joined Ingress in Bali back in 2017, it was 13Magnus Reawakens. I met so many agents from around the world, got to hang with them, planning, involving, executing the game play during that Anomaly, it got me hooked. My main game has and will always be Pokémon GO, it is more of my comfort zone, but I still hold onto Ingress and play it casually.
Hello, I play Ingress, Pokémon GO, and Pikmin Bloom. I am Japanese and live in Japan. I've loved to travel, and playing Niantic games and joining Niantic Wayfarer has accelerated my love of travel even more.
Hola, DanielGuco from Mexico!
Hi, I live in Brighton and Hove, a city on the South coast of England which is a vibrant place with two universities and plenty happening. I also spend time on the Gower which is in a rural part of South Wales and in Murcia in Spain. I am retired, having worked as a senior manager in publishing and mobile phone technology in London. I enjoy exploring our historic city and am forever discovering new places both here and elsewhere in the UK and abroad. Sadly not much abroad for the last two years due to COVID! I enjoy playing Pokémon GO and Ingress.
Hello, I’m MaestroTino from Mexico and some of my hobbies are video games, design, music, and photography.
My name is Akceptor. A software engineer from Ukraine with a faith that software can make people's lives better. And computer games are software too :) I started playing Niantic games from Ingress in 2012 I guess. You probably remember those old fancy Motorola Droid phones which came with the Ingress pre-installed. One of my reasons for me to join Wayfarer Ambassadors: helping people to create content for other people so that the next generation of gamers will have new places to explore. Ukraine is developing really fast, we got a lot of new interesting places both in distant locations and just in the neighborhood. What I want to do is just help to discover them.
We are all so very excited to kick start our first meeting where we will start planning for the year, setting community goals, and collaborating on how to best support you all, our Explorer Community! You may be wondering about the last two spots and in full transparency, some folks we were hoping to get a response from did not get back to us and we must continue moving forward. What this means is that we will continue to invite applicants to fill those two spaces until the end of this week and then close it for this round. We will let you all know about the status once we have more to share.
Lastly, in the next couple of weeks you will see the Ambassadors will have a special identifier in their name here in the community similar to the admins, see them sharing their previous and newly gained knowledge of Wayfarer, and in the next month, an announcement about some exciting project they’ll be leading to support our community! In the meantime, we ask that for the next couple of weeks, please allow them time to settle in and get ready for an exciting year!
Exciting to meet all the new ambassadors.
Though @NianticTintino, those are only 10 of the 12 that was said to be announced. Is 10 the new number of ambassadors or will there be 2 more coming?
Thanks for asking :) as mentioned in the second to last paragraph of my post, "You may be wondering about the last two spots and in full transparency, some folks we were hoping to get a response from did not get back to us and we must continue moving forward. What this means is that we will continue to invite applicants to fill those two spaces until the end of this week and then close it for this round. We will let you all know about the status once we have more to share."
Whoops, can't believe I skimmed over that part. Thanks for answering.
haha no worries, made me do a double take ;p
Congrats to everyone selected! I know a couple of you and I look forward to getting to know everyone else. hopefully the ambassadors project can do great things in the next year, I'm really looking forward to it.
Objection! Tehstone is 16
(this isn’t a serious post- it’s a discord meme)
Congratulations! I was hoping to see more folks from the East side of the world but hopefully in the near future, we'll see representation for Europe, Africa, and more of Asia in general.
I hope I can be of help!
It’s all part of my plan to turn this into a Wayfarer + Futurama forum.
Congrats to those who were accepted! I already recognise a few of you from here and r/NianticWayfarer, but I'm looking forward to hearing more from the rest of you as well :)
Congrats to all - I hope it’s a a fun journey.
and thanks to @NianticTintino for making the decision to make this update whilst settling the last 2 places. A useful update.
Congratulations to our newly minted Ambassadors! It's been fascinating to read everyone's intros. I believe we can expect great things from this group as they represent our community. This will be a fun year, good luck!!
I was going to post the gif of the neutral planet guy saying "I have no strong feelings one way or the other" but I can't work out how to post gifs in here 🤣🤣
Thanks for support :)
I'm happy to be a part of something gr8!
Congrats to the people selected, I recognise a couple of names and know those I recognise are fairly good to discuss stuff with
Now mist important question, what do they do?
Hope this Will work out! 🙃
I know the first three names from their help on Discord, and am very excited these are the kind of people you chose! Congrats to all the ambassadors, and I am looking forward to more communication now.
A many congratulations to everyone selected. I look forward to working with everyone in the future. Here we are all one team rather than working against each other like we do when we play the games. Here we are all working toward a common goal. To better the platform for the games that we love. I truly congratulate everyone selected. I’m so happy for you guys! I can’t wait to work with each & every one of you looking forward. And with everyone else as well. I personally have always commonly used advise from many of those listed, and others I personally don’t know. But that’s fine. We just haven’t crossed paths yet & I look forward to it. I have been playing for a little over five years & I have taught a many of new wayfinders in that time. Many who were still learning but wanted to help in submitting things within my community & those scattered throughout the state that I live in around me. I missed the deadline to apply for this due to work. But honestly it’s for the best because at the time, it just wasn’t meant to be. I am so happy for all of you guys! Take this time to celebrate. Very exciting! I am proud of all of you & to everyone who took the time to apply. It takes all of us to make a difference & that is what we are here for. Stay awesome everybody 😎 🤩
Congrats to everyone selected.
Let's hope that you enjoy your new positions.
Lets hope it goes well for all.
Congrats to all who were selected! @NianticTintino amazing selection of candidates! The program is definitely in good hands
