Suggestion to show satellite view over street view in Wayfarer
Title says it all. Show satellite view over street view, like we see in location edits.
Recently a group of suspected PoGo spoofers uploaded a fake street view of a accepted portal, nominated it through PoGo (known by the unknown in photos and by lure modules), got accepted, and then deleted the street views.
The results is a area full of fake portals, all duplicates of heaven knows where. I am going to send them to the right locations for the ones i know of. Others I will appeal for removal through the community.
To stop these happening further, I suggest to show the satellite view first. Showing the street view first leads to foolish reviewers being fooled, giving 5 stars without checking whether the street view is showing the right coordinates. Reviewers can see the satellite view first, and then can open the street view to further check the location of the POI in question.
I really like to know how others think about my suggestion. I have a way to report spoofers, wayfarer abuses-but this I have no idea how to stop. I will be checking the comments hourly-before I really act to remove the portals in question.
Thanks for reading this TL-DR.
