October 2019 Ingress AMA Question Thread

    Are charity headquarters valid candidates? I'd think they'd fall under candidates that connect people but haven't seen any info about charities in the submission Guidelines

    What are your thoughts on opening up the OPR reviewing process to Pokémon Go trainers?

    I think at Ingress Anomaly make face to face communication between Ingress Agents and Niantic members. How can we make face to face communication like as fire side chat at future Ingress event?

  • When the release on the beta version of "Ingress Prime" is coming out?

    Since the map of Epcot as "Future World" area will be gone, All pictures' portal will be erased in Epcot, because of the Transformation of the new reimagined Epcot as 3 new neighborhood area: World Celebration, World Discovery and World Nature and I have the annual passholder employee preview and the question is........

    When the transformation of the new reimagined Epcot is coming for Orlando to a whole new pictures' portal?

    When the second season of "Ingress: The Animation" is coming out to Netflix?

    When Double AP and Triple AP Points is coming back to Ingress Prime?

    And how many more days left until the next year?

    How many applications did Niantic receive for Niantic LIVE 2020 with Ingress as one of the proposed events.

    To what extent does Niantic take care of local permissions & other legalities when organising an event such as an anomaly? :)

  • Lately as an American Ingress player who has to rely on OPR priority points to get submissions to actually get reviewed, I noticed that an upgrade doesn't feel like an upgrade, as wait times start to extend longer and longer. Can there be a way to actually add more reviewers soon, whether it's through lowering the level requirements or adding more reviewers from other Niantic games (like say a peer nomination system or a lv req)? I feel the upgrade feature has lost its appeal to many agents, and the retirement of Redacted has also created a reason for many Ingress agents to quit. This has created a void in OPR which is only going to get worse as time goes by. Although it's in Niantic's best interests to maintain a good Point of Interest database, I don't think this is going to matter if the current set of OPR reviewers just judge by their own guidelines, which makes them no better than non-Ingress players who know 0 things about the guidelines. 

  • In OPR.

    Places like schools and private property say that we are to deny all nominations on those properties. Does this precident extend to the denials thst we are supposed to do on "Adult orientated Businesses" (**** clubs, liquor stores).

    Example, a mural is painted on the wall of a marajuana shop. Are we to deny the mural because it's on a place that should not be accepted or are we to not worry about what type of business that it's on?

    Are there any plans to make a port of Ingress Prime for the Nintendo Switch?

  • Would Brian also consider selling portal submission bundles? For example, 10 to 100 extra submissions for a cycle for $10-$100. It seems like it could help out some areas that really need the help, or allow for someone to help other areas more when they may be between submissions and not likely to return.

    When you and the PoGo CMs, George and Indigo (not sure his real name), go out for a beer, how do you determine who picks up the tab?
