New stacked ping request

What you guys think of this new stacked ping request? I personally hate it because it's not showing if the boost or surge is applied. And once u click on it, you are accepting the ride. Before you were able to click and see if it had boost/surge and then accept. Wtf

Stacked pings are great! Less wait time between one rider and the next. Just the time it takes to get the last pax to tuck and roll and then getting to the next to jump in.

Nothing wrong with stack pings. If you can't see surge or rating then put your glasses on. You need to check your eye sight.

I have my phone mounted low so neither the police or the pax can see it, so if I need my glasses to see something like that I am really taking my eyes FAR from where they're supposed to be (paying attention to what I'm about to crash into)

I love stacked pings also, but at first I didn't know what it was. The first time I encounted this I had a pax in the car and was just two blocks from the drop point, when suddenly there is this awful distracting noise disturbing the professional atmosphere in my car. Since I was negotiating a fast series of right turns/left turns in the final approach to drop point I couldn't look to see why my phone was so noisy, I just turned the volume down in a vain attempt to stop this assault on my pax's ears. (and it seemed to have no effect)

I've since discovered that this is stacked pings coming in. I also discovered that I can control the sound volume for the app from its settings menu, and I have reduced it considerably.

And now I know that a good way to silence these annoying sounds is to accept the ping! :p

Thanks. I didn't know you can control the volume but just found it.

But if you use it they take it away.
Only if you use it a lot.

I was only responding to the person who asked if declining stacked pings affected acceptance rate. Of course it does. Why shouldn't it? For those occasions where you really don't want another ride because of bathroom / food / sleep / etc., that's where the stop incoming requests option comes in.

Stacked pings keep you available. Use the Stop requests feature. Travis calls you guys "anti heat". He says you guys suck the heat out the map.

What if you don't want another request because you don't think it's safe, or maybe it's illegal to touch your screen to accept it where you are?

You used their giving a way to stop those pings to show they're not evil. But if they limit it, then how does that prove anything?

Put your glasses on
I use Bluetooth ear piece... So why does stacked ping need to annoy my pax?

And I guess I'm one of those older guys that likes to focus on ending ride carefully and has difficulty gathering the data from a stacked ping.

So I just accept all stacked ping and will do drop off and then cancel as I see fit.

If its a crazy night I will turn off new rides to let me get my bearings after a drop off.

But it is nice when you drop off at a busy club and your new pax are sliding in as your old pax slide out... Happened twice to me and I'm a noob.

Cancelling as you see fit will end up getting you deactivated.
