It was a dream to make our area a portal dense area so we can develop a community in the local area which was (at that time) not possible with 2 portals and 1 Gym.
So, we increased the number of portals to around 300-400 (approx) which attract trainers/agents in our area, encouraged peoples to play games, and develop a little community in the last 1.5 yrs.
When Wayfarer was introduced almost everybody was busy nominating potential areas and reviews but as time passed and new peoples become eligible for nominations and review it become toxic due to which many agents/trainers stopped nominating things and reviews.
what was the reason for that? same reason as mine some of them are given below,
Rejected Nomination:- When a potential way spot nomination rejected due to unwanted reasons which were not fair we start thinking like we waste our time. Like,
The above nomination was rejected " It Doesn't Meet Acceptance Criteria"
Fake Nominations: While reviewing when you noticed that your genuine nominations getting rejections but peoples making fake nominations got accepted easily.
Fake Nomination : (big ball) http://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=30.114166,78.289269&z=16&pll=30.114955,78.294631
Real Nomination : (Beautiful Bronze Sphere In Public Park) https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=30.748217,76.779061&z=17&pll=30.748217,76.779061
Que Status:- When your nomination is in the queue for a long time sometimes it's more than 2 months from nomination day.
No appeal policy for rejected nomination
Review Period: Sometimes it took a long time to get the result of a nomination.
Lack of Transparency & Fair Review: Even if you set your primary location & bonus location you'll get nominations from another place as well where you never visited ( place far away 500-600 km or more).What I experienced that peoples usually give a high star rating to local area nominations instead of others.
I'm thankful for all (Unknown) peoples who helped us in between these times and develop a good playing area for the community
