Here are the top questions as of 11:59 PM PST. @NianticTintino
There is an awkward tie for #15 between "How can Niantic motivate people to submit Lightship-only POIs" and "Picnic/BBQ Areas that are NOT under a pavilion/gazebo, are they eligible.
I'm sure there will be instances where some questions might merge. Somewhere there. Or other questions that didn't get enough votes might get bundled into the top questions. Oh, and don't forget the bonus question (whatever that might be)
You're the best! TY! Those match the ones we took record of at 11:59pm PST as well.
Bonus question? What's that? lol
I'm just going to ignore the fact that you just "lol'd" me.
At the end of December 2021's AMA, you had an 'End of Year Bonus Question', which I presume was something that you selected because it was something in the works or didn't have enough votes to be answered, but was important enough to be answered anyway.
Anyway, ball's in your court now. Hoping for some good answers.
@NianticTintino Would you be open to coming on the podcast to talk about the AMA's?
This is the bonus question.
April AMA responses have been posted! Check the out HERE!
hahaha C! All of the above. Just kidding. That "Bonus Question" was a little holiday cheer :) that's why I called it the End of Year Bonus Question
That is fair. That really did bring a lot of holiday cheer with the whole onboarding and made my entire year.
Well, until the next AMAs. Although I'm much more looking forward to the roadmaps.
Will Wayfarers who have had a high number or their own submissions approved receive any bonus perks?
This is a great question. We are already engaging with game and marketing teams across Niantic to think about additional perks and how you’d qualify for them. As of right now, Upgrades aren’t on the table but are very much interested in things like poses, avatar items, and IRL swag. It’s all still in the early stages so as more become solidified we’ll be sure to let you know. Trust, we’re very excited about this to thank you all for your continued support.
A pose and avatar items would be nice. I'm at nearly 200 accepted submissions and 20,000+ agreements but have stopped going out of my way to find new things and rarely review now. I could do with a little motivation ;)
Are we still getting the answers today?
This entire forum is wildly confusing to me. I’ve never been able to use Reddit and this is even more complicated. Is there a readable Q&A version of this somewhere?
You can try their Discord channel.
Hey @NianticTintino-ING when will the edit submissions page finally be up?
Will we get a new AMA soon?
What does AMA stand for?
Ask Me Anything.
I'll reply only to a few questions.
Serious question here. Why are people volunteering their time to this wayfarer program that they don’t get paid for?
it seems like this is just a way for a private for profit company to exploit free labor for their own gains.
Why are people allowing themselves to be exploited in such a way? Are they just lacking in intelligence or is there something they get out of it?
We get more wayspots to interact with in the games we play, and I find it nice to see different things in different parts of the country that I've never been to.
If you don't approve of Wayfarer, then fine, don't have anything to do with it. That does mean you can never interact with Pokéstops or Gyms again though, otherwise you're being just a little bit hypocritical.
allow us to remove appeals if something is already in game.
