Scout Controller - preventing abuse
I'd like to suggest the following, to prevent abuse of the feature and "guardian' like thing
I observed that the number os scans I submit are equal to the number of scout points I will earn. This can be abused by malicious people to dominate their favourite portal (by scaning it multiples times) to intentionally prevent others to became the scout controller. My idea is simples: after you became scout controller, you stop eaning more scout points on it. So if a portal had no controller, you submit like 10 in a row, you will still have only 1 scout point on the portal, and the next player who want to acquire an unique scout control will have to make just 2 scans, and if he decide to do more than that, the points will be locked at 2 (so a third player will only have to do 3 scans, and that goes on).
I believe this way if a lot more fair for everybody, both players and for niantic since the same person doing a lots of scans on the same portal will probably get the same results always and all those repeated scans could be used on diferent portals.
