Pokémon GO will show all the POI that are on the system when going to submit a new Wayspot. Pokémon GO Wayspots are marked as the PokéStop symbol.
Then the Wayfarer Pin marks any POI that are “used in other Niantic games”. This includes anything that is only Lightship, and would thus be marked as a duplicate by reviewers.
The same feature is due in January/February 2022 according to this.
So any day now?
I've had w things accepted that went straight to the lightship and as far as I could tell they weren't on the pogo submission map
Submitting portals takes time and effort. Why spend it if you already know it will be for nothing?
You could scan stuff instead with all the extra free time? 😀
I have several issues with the 20 meter rule.
because nomination are not only for ingress, and the 20m rule only applies in ingress.
Pogo nomination shows all existing POI iin lightship DB i am sure this feature will come to ingress or that nominations will be removed from all game and go in the wayfarer app
In Ingress, the problem is not so much the 20m rule itself, but rather the fact that high-quality wayspots that are worthy of their original purpose are hidden by low-quality portals.
Especially recently there has been an increase of really crappy portals by players of different games and Wayfarer teams who don't understand the standards the best.
It would be ridiculous if the most important pioneer statue in the area would not be a portal because of the presence of a non-sponsored convenience store sign as a portal.
The damage to the Ingres team that migrated the portal database is incalculable.
Because as a result of giving it away, their game will be destroyed.
I’d love it if the rule went away again.
I don’t see there being an issue of having a few Portals close to each other.
As for the duplicates map @Khatre mentions, that was planned for the Wayfarer team to add in “Summer” 2022. So any day now.
20m would probably be about right a, it was constantly implemented, b, there were ways to make the underlying maps/pois more consitant with the real world, ie someone to control which poi is a portal....
