Great present to Wuhan players during the 2019-nCoV outbreak
So, I am a Wuhan Ingress player currently locked down in the city for 20 days. Today I woke up with some new emails from Niantic like:
We noticed that you are continuing to submit previously rejected Missions without fixing the violations. Your Missions 楚辞·渔父 7/18 has been rejected for the following reason:
* The Mission has no description OR the description is identical to the Mission’s title
Note that any further violations can lead to the suspension of your Mission Authoring privileges or your Ingress account.
The reason is hilarious so I replied with some detailed info:
The description is part of the article while the title is name of the article, which is closely related to the
place and very famous in cultural way. I don't get how the description is "empty" while there clearly are words and they are of course not identical to the title.
To nobody's surprise they just ignored everything and just repeated some nonsense:
As per our policy, we will not be able to provide any specific information related to this warning. We have thoroughly reviewed your Missions and found that you have been violating the Ingress Terms of Service and Missions Criteria.
I just told other Wuhan players that their long-waited cultural banner missions has been abandoned since I won't resubmit any of them anymore due to being threatened by Niantic to suspend my Ingress account.
