Our first AMA of 2022! The April AMA will start on March 21, 2022! Similar to our last 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.
Like last time, there will be a question submission period and a voting period. You can vote for as many questions as you want (keep in mind there’s only one vote per question). Please see the dates below:
- Question Submission Period: 3/21/22 - 3/25/22
- Voting Period: 3/26/22 - 3/30/22
- Responses Posted: 4/1/22
The process for this will similar to the December AMA. There will be a new Category in the Community titled April 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 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 there. When it comes to voting, you’ll be able to vote for the question that you want answered. Keep in mind you’ll only be able to cast one vote per question and make sure your main vote is for the main question and not in the discussion. You can however, vote within the discussion is an extension of the original question is posted and you like it.
We’re looking forward to all of the questions and let me know if you have any questions in the discussion HERE.
@NianticTintino the upvote option is missing on the two discussions which got recently created. Is this wanted or a bug?
Can we vote only during the Voting period?
I would assume "yes" as that's why it's called a "Voting Period".
The voting period does not start until 3/26/22, so I assume we would not be able to vote on anything until the voting period begins.
Thanks for pointing out. Looking into it!
Normally, the voting starts instantly after the creation of the discussion. The voting period only describes a period where no new discussions can get created. However, you are still able to upvote discussions.
Alright folks, not sure what's going on but I went in and manually edited the voting capacity. Please let me know if you question didn't get edited but I think I got them all. New questions I'll get to as they come in :)
When I try to upvote a post, I am getting a message that say "Category is not configured for ideation." Is this due to the voting period not beginning until March 26th or are we able to start to voting on them now?
It doesn't look like new discussions are working, either.
I am also experiencing the "Category is not configured for ideation" thing
Should we post again we with the ability to vote?
Or, as in the original AMA, we can take up threads that you find interesting.
Looking into the "Not configured for ideation" issue.
Alright, I found a solution but similar to the December AMA, instead of new "discussion" it saying "report a bug". Please ignore that for now as it seems to be a strict setting. Will look farther but at least we have VOTING now :)
Looks good for me, thanks!
AMA version 22.3 has been rolled back to version 21.12
Thank you for fixing this! We were becoming worried that the arbitrary AMA voting deadline would pass and you would cancel it like you did with the 12th ambassador.
Will the voting period be extended since we couldn't vote for the past two days?
Why can't I Ask a Question in the April AMAs?
Because this could only be done prior to voting. oce voting starts no more questions can be added to the April AMA. See the OP at the start of this thread.

Today is 25th
If you scroll down to the bottom of this page there should be a button saying “Report a Bug” that is how you post a question to the AMA.
Thank you @Stephyypooke-ING for your answer. I was looking for the New Discussion and Ask a Question buttons like I would normally use. Maybe next time the announcement for the AMAs should specify that you need to Report a Bug to share a question.
@Purptacular-PGO Tintino did mention that ☝️
There's a secret message in the URL of the April AMA category. What should it mean?
Today is 28th and people keep on adding new questions.
@NianticTintino Why isn't the subforum already locked?
haha hawk eyes! When I was fixing the voting issue last week I created a new April ama then transfered all of the questions. It would have worked better than manually having to do it in the old post but while I was testing it, I added that message (testing do not post) so that no questions would be lost if it didn't work. I guess when I removed that from the title line it left it in the url.
@NianticTintino Is there a specific time today that voting will be cut off or that the questions will be made permanent? The questions at the bottom of the top 15 are pretty neck and neck, and I could see some potential frustration if voting isn't turned off and the order changes between today and when the answers get posted.
Great point. We will go based off the votes cast by 11:59pm PST.
My comment that had screenshots of the top 15 got filtered because of images so here is a quick little video showing the top 15 as of the voting cutoff time:
