Pokémon Go Submissions in OPR
I read about the idea, making a test for nominating new portals. I think it s an interesting idea.
But there are a few more problems. Almost every third portal submission has the following sentence in the comment field "please accept my nomination, i need a pokestop there".
Now to the real problem:
NIA created an interesting instument with the upagrades, that also had an positive impact on the opr community. Now, when pokemon go trainers are able to submit new nominations in Germany, the local OPR community is on it s limits again. I ve never seen so many wrong submissions (e. g. On private ground, companies, etc.) and so many sumbissions of portals, that are in ingress, but werent pokestops.
In my opinion the pokemon go community needs to see, what is already a portal in ingress, before submitting new pokestops. It s the only way to avoid duplicates of existing portals.
