Any way to NOT use an Upgrade?
By - icklepriest
Unfortunately, not. If you have upgrades banked, they're used automatically on your newest wayspot nominations. No way to not use them.
Ah, that's annoying! Ah well. Thanks for the info.
Yeah, it sucks. I believe they are working on changing it to give us full control over our upgrades, but that doesn’t help you now.
I have ten upgrades saved and am debating the best way to use them. I’m thinking the best thing is to submit ten slam dunk nominations so they go to voting quicker?
Eh? There might be slight difference how quickly you get decision with a "slam dunk" nomination compared to borderline nomination". But it's not significant.
Note, there are no slam dunk nominations when upgrades are involved! Use some effort even for things you think are fool proof. Especially the main photo and description. Lazy submission gets lazy reviewing.
Oh for sure. I still put effort into slam dunks because I know how voting can go sideways some times. Didn’t mean to imply effort wouldn’t be put in. Regarding upgrades, I personally think it’s better to use them on slam dunks because it does usually speed them up (though my area rarely has to wait more than a week to get out of voting) but I’ve learned that widening the pool of voters for local hotspots like restaurants, etc. makes it more likely non locals see it and just assume it’s a general business or an attempt at a work waypoint, while local voters are usually more inclined to have an idea about the local awards, etc an establishment has.
If you live in an area where you get somewhat prompt decisions, it's better to use for easy acceptances. Agreed. :)
Sincere apology for the "use effort" part of my text. It came off more rude than I realised while writing.
No worries. I wasn’t offended. Just wanted to clarify I wasn’t a lazy submitter haha
Nominate from a different account than the one that has the upgrades.
yeah i had to Stop reviewing just so that it does not auto Upgrade my nominations :D.. i still got come go into auto upgrade the same day i nominated .. and now they are stuck for the next few days
