Why do bans on other Niantic games prevent me from accessing wayfarer?
this issue has not been new - when you have been banned in a niantic game, does not matter which one - you completely loose access to niantics wayfarer tool. It is one thing i do not understand - while support always refers to the other game support (pokemon to ingress and ingress to pokemon), but can not really explain the situation themselves. So why do you (suddenly) loose access for a ban on a certain game, which has been there for a long time - and after i have reviewed ~10000 Portals? The point of the block in wayfarer just does not get to me.
I have partly enjoyed doing OPR/Wayfarer to improve the game for places that lack any POIs. Also I can still submit portals - but no check their status or correct spelling mistakes. Why is the block global and not just on the rating feature? There are so many question i don't find a answer to.
Could you guys maybe suggest what is the thinking niantic has here? (Or maybe even someone from niantic can explain?)
To my story: I have been playing pokemon go, when the game came out. I somehow got trapped by a "get free coins" website (I know not very smart) and gave a third party access to my account - which therefore resulted in a ban (justified nonetheless). After a year or so i came across ingress - and started enjoying the game.
