Even if the "upgrade next" was going to be removed as a feature, nominations already marked as "upgrade next" should have been honored by the system. But this is just another example where Niantic has failed to communicate with the community about upcoming changes. Instead, we were completely blindsided and given no time to prepare for the transition between two very different systems.
Awesome, good news! Just to make sure when you say "reverting", does that mean the Upgrade Next method will be active in addition to being able to manually assign Upgrades with the toggle in the settings, or will it be a complete reverting of the feature back to Upgrades being assigned automatically, no matter what?
Some of you may have noticed that you are currently not able to Upgrade nominations that were marked as Upgrade Next prior to the new 4.8 Release. As mentioned previously, we are bringing back Upgrade Next and the ability to Upgrade In Voting nominations. When those are brought back in early June, Wayfarer will honor the Upgrade Next nominations that were set prior to 4.8 Release. In the meantime, to save that Upgrade and not have it be used on any other nomination, make sure you toggle off Automatically Apply Upgrades. This will avoid your upgrade from being used and will automatically go back to the nomination you had marked as Upgrade Next when those features return.
Apologies for the confusion and thank you all for your patience. Safe Exploring!
Once the update goes out, will we need to turn on the toggle in order for the Upgrade Next to be upgraded? Or will Upgrade Next apply regardless of the toggle setting?
Love the hold feature, my submission process has now change to queue the minimal submission in app (ingress / PoGo), when I have a good signal upload everything, then go into wayfarer and place everything on hold. This allows me to go through all my submission on the PC later with the ability to check my facts, descriptions, duplicates etc before releasing the hold. Would be even better if I could set it as default status for my submissions.
It would be useful if when reviewing the lat, long were available to make it easy to get the correct position in a more useful map than google maps.
Just to confirm (mostly to just me) the Wayfarer team are at this event.
I was told in when using the support chat that anything marked upgrade next before the changes would be honoured but mine is sat there not upgraded.
they aren't fixing the system until early june (if then)
I know there are updates coming in June and that isn't miles away, however is anyone other than me just losing upgrades and those that are upgraded not moving along at all ?
I turned off auto-upgrade after realising what was happening and things from 2020 were being upgraded.
I've withdrawn a load of old nominations.
Now I have a recent nomination that was marked as upgrade next that wayfarer help said would be honoured and hasn't moved from upgrade next for well over a week.
I also manually chose my next upgrade and that has sat in queuing for days not upgraded at all.
I then turned back on automatic upgrade as I had cleared out the old nominations and I have since earned 2 upgrades that haven't been awarded automatically and are now gone.
Basically my long moaning message basically is asking, is it worth bothering reviewing until all the updates are done and bugs fixed ?
We get get the new Wayfarer app to mobile with 4.8?
Not on 4.8! They only just started it. Maybe by 5.5/5.8
Anybody else having very strict cooldowns since the update? Usually I was able to review hundreds of submissions until I've reached the end of queue, but since the update I get the cooldown message after around 20 reviews.
It doesn't matter if it's 20 cool submissions which get 4-5 stars, if it's 20 crappy submissions with 1 star or a mix of both.
Something is strange here. My rating went down from great to fair in 4 days
2022 or 2023?
Or 2024 for a working app.
Will we be able to take the upgrade next off the one currently stuck with that tag or will it be reset? I really don't want to waste an upgrade on that nomination since it will be close to a decision having been in voting 2+ months by then. Upgrades are like gold & this would not make me happy. I like the new system & think it is great by the way.
Look at your email after you nominate a poi. Right below the picture should be the coordinates. Yes it is very useful.
You're not the only one I've seen reporting this
My rating is really inconsistent too in this period. It goes up and down between great and good. I used to always be on great and it's really strange my rating could go down, especially because my agreements are going up as fast as usual
Hi @NianticTintino, apologies for the tag, but I'm just curious about the status of these changes. It's now over a week into June, and we have yet to hear updates on this, so I thought I'd ask.
Particularly the problem with not being able to upgrade nominations "IN VOTING" is concerning to many wayfarers; often nominations will be in queue only for a short time and then proceed to be stuck in voting for years and years on end with nothing we can do to speed up that process now, since upgrades cannot be applied to them now. The Wayfarer frontend allows us to press the "Upgrade" button, but it just gives us an error message when we try to click it. It looks like this only needs to be toggled on the backend.
I'm concerned because several people I've talked to have said that they refuse to do any reviews until you can upgrade in voting nominations again, and that they feel cheated for gaining an upgrade that they aren't allowed to use due to this seemingly arbitrary restriction.
May you please provide us with an update on the status of this change? :-)
I've added the below updates to the top of the original post but sharing here as well.
We appreciate your patience while we worked on bringing back some of the features requested. Starting today, you’ll now see:
Both of these features will work on nominations that have NOT been flagged for Niantic Review.
Do you have to turn Auto-Apply back on for Upgrade Next to work? I don't want to take a chance on my oldest nomination being upgraded and I can't put it on hold since it is in voting.
Oh, yikes! Just reread how that was stated. Would this only work if I had not upgraded anything while y'all were working on this?
Glad to see this get fixed, thanks!
Brb putting a bunch of nominations back in queue
excellent, thank you for the timely fix.
now we just need the ability to withdraw submissions that are in voting, withdraw appeals, and be able to see and edit our edit contributions, lol
The UPGRADE NEXT button does reappear as told, yet I am unable to perform the upgrade. Why?
Nice, thanks Tintino! Next step bring back withdraw for in voting nominations.
Is this update live? I have an upgrade next button but receive the error Unable to upgrade (E2).
I experienced the same issue, but I found out the reason now. It seems that the Upgrade Next cannot be used on In Voting nominations, but you can use it on In Queue nominations. The error will appear if you use it on In Voting nominations.
