It is really demotivating to wait 30 seconds for a nomination to load. If Spain runs out, why not give a chance to Italy and Taiwan?
You can switch off Spain and doing some local for some hours and then comeback to the Challenge.
Well, the site says I am out of things to review, so guess I am out of luck. And reports of plenty of untouched nominations in Madrid I would love to get to. Very frustrated. As I am sure they are, too.
what happened here @NianticTintino-ING ? I have to wait several seconds for the next thing to load
Yesterday I could review at a normal speed and had 90% on spain propositions.
Today : 2 to 30s for a proposition to appear (not linked to wifi, it is great and the same as always) and less than 50% of spain :'(
I did only around 200 reviews
The ambassadors are raising the issue of the flow of nominations……..
So @NianticTintino-ING and team once they have had coffee and are at work can look into this.
You all are the best!
It seems like I can't review anymore. I've only reviewed about 50 Spanish nomination and need to do 450 more.
TBH with my spare time i cannot wait even longer for a review. I have a life, a job and duties, and also theres an Pokemon Go Event on the weekend.
Not that the waiting time is strange, i didnt get as many spanish wayspots to review as yesterday.
Maybe some adjustments should be make on Niantic's side. Let's give them some time to react, once they see this. It's still early in California.
Edit: I'm in Spain, and also stuck for a loooong time with the bouncing balloon. Definitely, there's something that needs some fixing.
Thank you all for raising the issue. The Ambassadors have shared this with us and we are looking into this. We'll report back when we have more to share.
Is anyone else today just getting hung up on the bouncing balloon? I can barely review anything, and I know I didn't hit my 500 yesterday...
Yes, known issue that’s being looked at.
It seems we were too successful! Hopefully more Spaniards nominate more points of interest!
Please don't put that message out. We have only worked through specific nominations. There are plenty more that we need to review. Niantic is working on getting those a pathway into our queues.
That could be cool, but I'd also recommend a personal count for the challenges. Last challenge, we just had to participate in the challenge to earn community rewards. This time, we need 500 individual reviews. For example, of I know I'm near the next personal tier, I'm more likely to continue reviewing.
However, I've been having issues with the site being really slow this time and getting cool downs more since the challenge started so can't review even though I want to try for at least the 100 tier. So another suggestion might be to disable cool downs when you want people participating in the challenges.
Are people clearing Spanish backlog that fast? But some reports show that nominations from Madrid haven't moved yet, so something is definitely going on there @NianticTintino-ING
Anyway nice to see nomination from Ballearic Islands.
No. The way it is pulling is messed up. It sounds like they are trying to figure out how to basically upgrade the areas that are submission dense. So that they all come through at once instead of resolving one at a time.
It is the one at a time that is killing us. Loads, gets approved/denied, wait a minute next one goes in. But with so many of us reviewing the queue is not reloading fast enough to keep us all voting.
Thank you for those who have shared their challenge reviewing experiences with our Ambassadors, they have been incredibly helpful in our investigation. Our team was deep in investigation and will continue to do so tomorrow as we work on finding a solution. We will keep you posted once we have more to share.
I posted a video about this on my channel. https://youtu.be/Is6nWYsTVQc
I doubt it will get traction, but anything to help get the word out is good.
Unfortunately I only did 7 Spain reviews last night because I was tired and now I got 2 Spain out of 12 nominations. I don't think I am getting to 50!
FYI I think your YouTube channel is really helpful!!
Any update? Still not getting enough Spain reviews. Can you temporarily boost nominations from some other country in random while you figure out the issue? you can always extend the deadline by X number of days for the Spain challenge.
Itll be a win win because you will be clearing other backlog as well
They are on the west coast. The work day doesn't start for 2 more hours.
The rewards contain only 5 upgrades (for previous challenges there were 10 upgrades)...please add more 5 upgrades or 5 appeals.
one more suggestion -
in case the Spain reviews are not coming through and taking a long time then see if you can implement this - this will help clear local backlogs as well
count 5 local (non spain) reviews during the spain challenge = 1 spain challenge review and give tier rewards accordingly.
so basically - for personal tiers
tier 1 = 500 local (non spain) reviews
tier 2 = 750 local (non spain) reviews
tier 3 = 2500 local (non spain) reviews
Thanks but it hasn't gotten the traction I expected it to get. If you can get the word out that would help, I haven't been very motivated to continue lately. I didn't get 1 subscriber in an entire month until I announced I was switching from daily to 3 times per week 😆
Sadly another very frustrating event from Niantic.
It would be nice with an estimated time for resolution of the issues, when will it work again (or do I have to check every hour?). Instead of "be patient" as an answer.
And will the time of the challenge be extended so it is possible to reach the 500?
I wish I just didnt care about wayfarer anymore. Must work on that instead.
