Submitted new waypoint - doesn't show in Wayfarer (Ingress)


I submitted a new Ingress Portal location and my daily submission count was reduced from 40 to 39. I didn’t receive an email about successful submission of Portal (used to get the earlier). When I login to my Wayfarer account, I do not see the portal in my Submissions list.

Has the process changed or did I mess up something?


this is a bug that can happen sometimes, especially if you’re using upload later and it takes a few tries to go through. when it works properly you should receive an email within 3 minutes and it should appear on the website as soon as the email has gone out


Would you recommend then resubmitting the portal?

yes I would, there’s no resolution I’m aware of for the issue and the wayspot nomination never pops back into existence

I tried creating a pokestop over a month ago, pretty sure i went through all the steps on wayfarer I think. However where do I see the status of it? I have been looking on my profile for where it would be but I can’t find anything. I don’t want to try and do it again if there is already one in progress, but if there isn’t I would like to get the process started asap. Any help on this would be greatly appriciated. Thank you!

If it made it into the system you will see it on your contributions page if you click “Wayfarer” at the top of the page here.

oh i see you made a separate post with this question.

This happened to me a lot. If you don’t get the email within a few minutes then it didn’t go through and you should resubmit it.
Unfortunately it has gone into the void.

Came here to ask the same thing as I had submitted something yesterday but couldn’t find it in contributions even after waiting almost a day. I’ll just resubmit mine as well then.

Did you get an email?
There are 2 ways to confirm it has gone through successfully:
The contributions page
An email confirming receipt.

Not for the submission yesterday. I checked my inbox after seeing the advice in this thread and resubmitted it already after not finding a confirmation.
