Edit suggestions stuck in limbo
Technically not a NEW bug, which is kinda the whole problem - but reported here it shall be. 🧙♀️
While new photo suggestions are processed on an almost day-to-day speed level, other edit suggestions seem to be stuck in (or out of?) voting for eternity.
Location edits are the worst. I have some suggested edits that I made more than two years ago, and they have still not been decided.
Text edits are very slow too.
Altogether it makes no sense, AND it just really dulls down the whole Wayfarer system. It makes Wayspots not reflect reality sometimes too, and that's not what you want, now is it?
Oh, and... it has been ages since we started receiving Wayfarer emails with this, and I quote: "You can also check the status of your submission in your Contribution Management page" (for photo and other edits). This is still not possible, in spite of what the emails say.
Remove the false text from the emails or implement the changes. Jeez. Why must it be such a circus with these issues? This should be really simple.
What's up with this? Get a move on, Niantic!
And yeah, if I sound annoyed, that's because I am. 😁
New photo submissions can also disappear into a black hole depending on the area.
I have unresolved photo submission dating all the way back to 28th March 2021.
If only Niantic included those too in their current efforts to get older (before December 2021) queued nominations through voting. 😅
Btw, how does this upvote thing work? How many upvotes does a post need to get attention from Niantic, does anyone know that? And is there a timeframe?
(Yes, I am impatient too... 😂)
The Edits-on-Contribution-page email statement was introduced in December, 2021 - 15 months ago. Probably millions have been sent by now.
I wrote up all the email bugs I could think of (17 different emails, some with multiple bugs) in October 2022, here https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/37308/all-17-wayfarer-emails-are-wrong-and-or-misleading#latest It's been five months so far, and Niantic has not replied.
I have lots of Wayspots with new and more accurate photos and a totally outdated description, because of how stalled the edit process is.
Example: A playground got a total makeover and is now pirate-themed and round-ish shaped. The title is still 'Square playground', because even though the photo was processed rather quickly, the title and description edits are still... Well, where ARE they, Niantic?
Niantic...? Any comments?
Hey folks, thanks for bringing this up. We do have plans for the oldest undecided submissions in the system. Please be patient and you should see these edits processed as well. Thanks,
Wow - I hope Niantic will really work on edits! FIFO would be fantastic!
I am seeing a lot of micro moves happen in Ingress to local portals. Some portals I submitted move request to. But I am not seeing anywhere near the distance I requested. An Agents research suggest the portals are moving about 4" East (-0.000001 Longitude).
These moves seems to prevent linking if there was an existing link by having invisible ghost links still at the old position.
I just received confirmation of edit being processed "Congratulations, the community has decided to accept your Wayspot edit." Submitted mid June last year. 1st in 6 months. 20 more in queue.
