PhantomNVD:
Linux: Just reached 100 data pins and nothing exciting

Linux

Edit: No Golden data pins seen


Where do you live that you can hit 100 pins already! (I’ll come visit your hood 😉) I’m on 29 pins after spending most of Saturday driving around in SWMBO’s Leaf and running into parks and malls to reach them...

On that note... I’m on 5.4Gb for 29 pins... haven’t you reached the 10Gb cap already? (Especially since you restarted the pin count but kept the prior data when you ported... 🤔)

 

@PhantomNVD 101 data pin has me on 7.7GB, I have done these around the North Shore / West Auckland and some in Auckland CBD

Has anyone managed to find any golden pins this time round? Biggest I've gotten so far has been 300 MB.

Biggest one I found was 600 MB, in Newmarket Auckland. No golden pins showing on my app now, although I recall seeing them on the first day I found out Data Hunt was back on, but they were all gone by the next day.

@2degreescare : So some new pins popped up today just up the road and I went to spin them, but 2 of them didn’t resolve into flags properly?

Click to see full size

No matter how close I came, they stayed clumped as a 2 and wouldn’t resolve into flags or give me the “let’s go” prompt?

On a zoomed out map it says 5 in Pokeno, so it’s not just an artefact left of the 2 other flags there either 🤔

BUMP

 

@2degreescare any update on this or how I can report it to the right team in 2D please?

 

It's not the end of the world, but rather frustrating and not a good look for others who might come off the freeway there to try for these pins either?

That's very interesting.  Those pins only show up when you are zoomed right in on that area. I wonder how many other pins are "hidden" like that?

I can’t even zoom that close? I wonder if this is iOS related? Can one of you try zoom on the Pokeno pins I showed above please?

Here’s my view fully zoomed on the are Teatatu ones:

Seem to have disappeared now? At least I saw them very early in the morning but can't see them anymore even really zoomed in. Although I thought I could always see there were lots there even when I wasn't zoomed in

Does seem to have disappeared ... there was another similar spot in Parnell (George St) that also had 14 clumped together like the Te Atatu one ... now seems to have vanished as well.

Pokeno lost the extra ones too... now back to 2 there only?

Perhaps they have a roving swarm
