December AMA - Discussion
It’s that time again. Our December AMA will start on December 8, 2021 (TODAY)! Similar to our Sept. AMA, this is the time for you to ask your most pressing questions about Wayfarer and vote on other questions you want answered. Once voting is done, 15 questions will be selected and sent to our team for responses.
As before, there will be a question submission period and a voting period, all coming to a close when we post the answers to 15 of the most voted on questions. Please check out the dates below:
- Question Submission Period: 12/8/21 - 12/13/21
- Voting Period: 12/14/21 - 12/19/21
- Responses Posted: 12/23/21
With that being said, we will be doing things a little different this time. For this AMA we will be creating a new Category in the Community titled December AMA where you’ll be able to ask your question(s) as a New Discussion (as you would in any other category). Since the New Discussion title can only be so long, add the topic of your question in the title. If you have a similar question or an addition to the question, please make sure you go into the discussion and add to it. When it comes to voting, you’ll be able to vote for the question (discussion) that you want answered once you click into the December AMA category (similar to the bugs category). Keep in mind you’ll only be able to cast one vote per question. We hope that this method can help address some of the previous concerns such as asking your question within the first page, counting votes, the same questions being asked multiple times, etc.
We’re looking forward to all of the questions and let me know if you have any questions in the original post HERE.
I just want to express appreciation for the idea of sorting questions by topic, instead of simply the responses on the first page getting the most feedback.
This seems to be a much better way of doing it.
I like the voting threads idea! You can have a conversation about the question(s) in the threads without it clogging up the main thread. Makes it easier to look for dupe questions too. Great way to take advantage of Vanilla’s features!
I'm glad we're trying something different, but it's definitely taking my brain a little to get used to the idea. I hope it works out for us!
+1 to the comments about liking the new voting system. Now, if only I could actually think of something to ask that hasn't already been asked haha
Yeah this is waaaaay better. I like that I can also change the sorting of the submitted questions too and they don't get buried in conversations now.
Looking at the posts, I don't know if this is an AMA where we ask questions, or this is a feature request recollection. Even the button is titled "New Idea", not "New Question"
What's the goal with this AMA?
Yeah, a lot of people are treating this AMA as "things I want niantic/wayfarer to do" instead of asking questions. Like, what are they expecting? I'm not looking forward to a chunk of the top 15 being answered with "thanks for the idea!" and then nothing.
The reason you aren't seeing questions in the headers is likely this-
You are seeing the topic the questions are about...
Today is the last day to submit your questions! Any questions submitted after today will not be taken into consideration by the Wayfarer Team even if they get votes. Please make sure your votes are cast for your favorite questions between tomorrow (12/14/21) and this upcoming Sunday (12/19/21). Don't forget, responses will be posted 12/23/21!
December AMA voting closed yesterday. We are now pulling them all together and we are still on track to post responses on 12/23/21. Stay tuned!
Esta publicacion deberia tener mas "me gusta" que los comentarios de abajo tomandose todo el credito.

Will the December 2021 AMA be added to the help page? https://wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/new/help
When's the next ama due? Got a question that I asked before (about streetview) that Got pushed down, so mught be answered in a ama
Wayfarer ambassadors have also been selected.
I think it is about time to hold the next AMA, do you have any plans?
And the content of both the last and previous meetings seemed a bit confusing.
Therefore, it would be easier for us to see if we could hopefully bundle the threads by several themes (approval and denial/deleted candidates, clarification of criteria, support and feedback, appeals, and Wayfarer's future).
If we do hold an AMA, I would like to suggest this to you all.
