    I can rate it on the picture of course but you have to rate the title and description, for all I know it could be bad grammar, incorrect or even rude lol

    I get those fake "Kunst am Stromkasten" the whole time and 50% of my reviews are German while I live at the east of The Netherlands. But I can handle the German nominations most of the time

    it is still an atrocity that niantic allowed these things into.

    they are the main source of fake poi here in germany.

  • O would like to my to review wayspots of places that I already know. Since yesterday I can only see reviews from Australia.

    please fix

  • About 1x every day or two, I get a stop like the below popping up in my queue. My home area is the Washington DC area, so I don't think these should be getting pulled. I do not have a bonus location set. I've seen stops in Portuguese, Russian, German, and I believe that's Polish below? They never load the location when they pop up - they're always blank like this. Anyone else seen this?

    Hi niantic support,

    I want to report a problem which possibly is a bug which is that i am receiving nominations to review from areas which are nowhere close to my hometown location which i have selected in my account.

    Whichever nomination i receive to review is from different cities altogether and not a single nomination was from near my selected location.

    I humbly ask of you to kindly look into the matter

    Thank You.

    Trainer, this is working as intended.

    You will primarily see nominations from a large area surrounding your active play area (3x3 L6 S2 cells) along with what you set as your hometown and bonus locations. You will also see nominations outside of these areas as nominations are upgraded on a continental level.

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for flagging - the purpose of the Showcase is to show high-quality Wayspots that exemplify high quality nominations that are close to where you are active. I hear you that this location isn't close to where you normally play or where you've configured your settings - it's likely that these are the highest quality locations nearby.

    That being said, the feedback about more regular rotation and a wider possible pool from which the Showcase pulls could be valuable. As we're discussing 2021 priorities with the Wayfarer team, I'll provide this feedback to see what further changes can be made to make this more useful.

  • Hi there,

    As @TheFarix-PGO mentioned, there are three components to what appears in your review queue: hometown location settings, bonus location settings and recent play activity.

    Seeing nominations outside of your location settings isn't a bug but rather should be a reflection of your play activity in Niantic apps.

    I can confirm that despite the fact that I live in a region with 1.5M inhabitants, the showcase Wayspots that I see are ALWAYS from 2-3 small towns in its south-west corner. I find it really hard to believe that the highest quality Wayspots can be always from the same 10 km area, and even more so because the quality of the pictures isn't always that good. Respectfully, I really doubt it is working as intended @NianticCasey-ING.

    You can find here a detailed explanation about how the selection system works

    It boils down to "SELECT TOP 3" ... " ORDER BY Id"

    As the title states, the showcase tab isn't functioning as intended.


    When logging into Wayfarer, you are brought to the showcase tab, which you recently updated. This shows some nice examples of wayspots. The issue with this tab though is that even before the recent update, the wayspots shown to me are *always* from the area shown on the map below.

    This is a small section of the UK that is over 100 miles away from my current location. I have never visited or played in this area and it has very little relevance to me. I could understand seeing one or two showcased wayspots from this area every now and then, but literally *every single wayspot* on my showcase since I first started participating in wayfarer (since Pokémon Go players were first allowed to participate) has been from this very small area.

    To me, this seems like a bug. The UK has a lot of wayspots, and it would be nice to see them showcased from a variety of different places up and down the country, rather than from this one particular area. I think the mechanisms for choosing showcased wayspots are broken and need fixing, so that everyone gets to see a wider variety of good wayspots in their area, which I believe should be the aim of the showcase tab.

    Im from Prague (Czech Republic), but I keep getting German and Polish nominations (and Czech, but I dont mind Czech). Its harded for me to review it, if I do not know the language. Is there a way to just receive Czech Nominations?

    No, but with Google Translate or any other usable translator you should be able to figure out the vast majority of nominations, no matter the original language.

  • The same happens to me, I am from Hong Kong but I cannot access Mainland China, not only the remote areas but literally any city on the mainland. So I often find it confusing to rate the spots and if I rate them randomly, I got banned for a few hours for the voting pattern issue. Can the review be limited back to my home country and home city, Hong Kong?
