Living (and submitting) where 4 S2-8 Cells meet
i guess niantic wont discuss this, but i bring it up anyways.
i live, play and submit wayspots in the rural parts of middle germany.
my town is exactly in the right lower corner of a S2 level 8 Cell. there is one big city in it, that has lots of wayspots and lots of players. if i submit a wayspot, usually within 4 weeks it gets accepted.
there the problems begin. another part of our Area is in a different S2 level 8 Cell. it has not that much players, as it lacks a bigger city, and also does not have that much wayspots than mine cell. if i submit a wayspot, it doesnt even jump from in queue to in voting. it happens that everyone who submits in that area isnt able to get anything thru. casual players who submit anything will maybe get an acceptance after 6-8 month.
now the interesting part begins -> there is also another S2-8 cell that is next to those two, and if I, or anyone else submits, the wayspot will be accepted in 4-7 days. -> the big thing: that area is totally underpopulated. it hasnt even 10% of the pokestops that Area 1 has. also population is very low there.
i havent submitted anything in Area 4, which is the other one that should bring similar results than Area 1.
conclusion: if you have a big city in your S2- Level 8 Area where you submit, you can be happy. Also if you live and submit very rural, you can expect very fast results.
Do not live and submit somewhere inbetween.
Anyone got similar results?
