Unable to make new wayspot submissions- Wayfarer down for more than a month
I have successfully made many wayspot submissions- in the past two years. Many of my nominations were featured in the wayfarer showcase on different occasions. (I'm level 41 in Pokemon go BTW.) The last of my wayspot submission was in February 2022. For the past one month I'm unable to do make any new wayspot submission. The following error keeps popping up even though both Pokemon go and Ingress are working properly without interruption . I've contacted both Pokemon go support as well as Ingress support and they have no clue as to what I'm experiencing right now. It feels like blackout. I've followed every step support asked me to do but nothing's working. Also I've shared few examples of my previous contribution...Please help me out somebody!
What happens when you try to make a submission through your game?
I'm not sure how the system responds if you haven't passed the Wayfarer test yet. That's a relatively new restriction for submitting things.
You're banned, dude. Whatever email you are using for Pokemon go has a banned ingress account attached to it.
The game take me to wayfarer website which then displays the same error over and over again!
But ingress is working fine now and always have been. I'm able to play the game too! Then why ?
The support people say that there's no wayfarer account associated with my email. But then I would have been able to create a new wayfarer account right. But it didn't work that way!
See ! I checked with ingress support and they say that there's no restriction in my ingress account
Has your Pokemon Go account been restricted?
You need to create a Wayfarer ID, and pass the easy test. It's a new rule. Here: https://wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/
No, I've been playing Pokemon go for more than 5 years and I haven't had any restriction yet!
Yes, I understand , but the thing here is when I try to enter wayfarer website the error I have mentioned keeps popping up. I've shared a screenshot too.
I'm thinking I'm the only being ever suffering from this problem in all of Niantic's history!
Still doesn't explain why he's unable to visit Wayfarer page.
If your Pokemon GO and Ingress account has never been suspended ever, did the account had ever de-linked before? And did you play Pikmin Bloom as well?
And don't expect the mods here will respond with any helpful message—they might also have no clue why your account is suspended and will ask you to asking each game's support again.
I'm not clear about my account being de-linked but I have been continuously able to play both games without interruption! I haven't tried Pokemon Bloom yet!
Try signing in to the forum using your ingress ID
I think Niantic support has quit trying to help me with this issue and the forum hasn't helped me either. It's so disappointing!
Why isn't anyone from Niantic noticing my concern ?
I'm starting to think that Niantic just ignores rural players because they don't purchase enough to get their attention!
It's not that - similar problems with Wayfarer logins have been reported here and I don't think they're looking at player location. The support for Wayfarer logins is pretty poor.
I can't give you definitive advice, but when I had similar symptoms in the past, I was able to revive myself by doing the following.
I am sure you have already tried, but it may be worth a try.
(1) Restart your computer or smartphone.
(2) Repeat logging in and out of the Wayfarer site. (Also the forum site)
(3) Delete browser cache and cookies
I'll keep on repeating that, sure!
If the same issue had occurred to a celebrity/youtuber Niantic might have been considerate enough to look into it. They don't care about normal players who don't have a direct impact on the player community.
This was the last time I heard from support and that's quite long ago. Where do I go for help when there's no one willing to help !
Nobody knows how hard it is to enjoy Niantic when there's no wayspot nearby, and wayfarer is the only tool for salvation and Niantic is not even bothering to look into the issue, pathetic me!!
I was just writing that and now it's coming to me.
Apparently the symptoms are contagious.
As a result of this commotion a wayspot which I nominated back in early January (2022) hasn't yet moved to voting queue or is lost. I would have atleast known the status of my wayspot nomination if it wasn't for this wayfarer issue!
Niantic support isn't helping!
Niantic community forum isn't listening!
Niantic doesn't care!
Where do I go further?
It took me more than 3 years to reach l40 living in an area with 0 wayspots.
Nobody seems to understand the importance of wayspot submissions as much as I do
After all those hard work Niantic simply ignores me with this silly Wayfarer issue!!
So much disappointment from a elite brand!!!
@NianticGiffard maybe you should help this guy before he started to ranting again.
Hey @NianticGiffard for how long would you abandon this guy? He already stated that nothing wrong with his account and he doesn't ever requested any game deletion yet.
Hi there, @ArSon1112-PGO, sorry for getting to you so late. We need to look into your matter closely since there seem to be issues affecting your account. Having said that, I will escalate it to the appropriate team.
It has been three months since I was able to make a new wayspot submission!
Dear Niantic , just because I'm a player from rural/remote area Please don't ignore me.
Making my place more accessible through new wayspots is the only thing that kept me going this couple of years.
Kindly help me out to make new wayspot submissions again!
From 0 wayspots to these many POIs let my contributions melt your heart to convince helping me out!
Give me one reason why I shouldn't say, " Niantic is busy raking money selling go fest tickets , and hence my support plea won't be attended even after three months or ever "
