Lack of Niantic input to forums.

SSSputnikSSSputnik ✭✭✭✭✭

It's coming up on six months since the last post by Niantic in the News section of the forums.

Apart from bug report area there is basically zero input from Niantic to anything other than shutting down discussions.

Either do something or close the forums Niantic.



  • Nor does the older game, Pokemon Go...


    While we could say "Just **** the forums", it still provides a central place for discussion that somewhere like Facebook has never been able to reproduce what G+ once had.

    Last post on the blog was pre-xmas.

    seems they decided to interact less when new app versions no longer is posted by them I guess they didnt want to read all negative comments how broken the game is its clear they reply more or less in report bug section only ☹️

    I will repeat my endgame scenario suggestion, as it seems more and more likely.

    OPR and nominations are shut down entirely. Mission creator and the store too. I originally said that a virus could enter the portal network and would remove one portal at a time, but now they could use red portals. When a red portal decays or is destroyed, the portal disappears, until there are none left.

    Yeah, I’d much rather have the forums than the Campfire, which seems to be what Pokémon GO chose for their “forum” space, but it’s difficult to track any meaningful conversations there.

  • SSSputnikSSSputnik ✭✭✭✭✭

    Campfires awful. I stated when they were talking about it, it's a bit late now to be introducing a new chat platform when the communities already solved that 10 years ago.

    Is the link to the forums in the app new? That's interesting....

    I don't think ingress wants that. That would be regress unless out of business is happening.

    Perhaps, however, Campfire should also be browser-based, which would solve the current lack of searchability and multilingual support to a certain extent.

    Thia where art thou 👀

    Well, just look at the account information and see who's been here recently. Or who has bothered to actually sign in so that they could reply, or like something, or even change the status of something in the bugs forum...seems rather bleak.

    Thia (Not sure what her role currently is (other than posting memes)) hasn't visited the forums signed in since Jan 17th

    Granted she has been more active on Telegram than she has been on the forums recently. (*cough Mission Day/NL-1331 tour somewhere in the near future*)

    Brian Rose (Ingress Producer) hasn't visited the forums signed in since Feb 2nd

    Ace aka John Hanke (CEO)

    Feb 6th.

    Ex-Employee's (Ex-Community Awesome Dude (Ex-Official go-between for agents & Ingress (voice of the agents))) have visited more recently

    Nearly a month since the current Community Specialist/Community Manager has checked the forums isn’t great.

  • joecainjoecain ✭✭✭✭✭

    (shrugs) after how many tags and likely other niantic employees telling her "you should probably respond to this"

  • EvilSuperHerosEvilSuperHeros ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm guessing someone tagged her on telegram. Seems to be the fastest way to get a response from her.
